Watching Toradora for the first time
This nigga just went full retard
I've never cringed so hard before watching an anime...
>I've never cringed so hard before watching an anime...
Nigga you gotta watch more anime.
That guy was hilarious, motherfucker was nuts. Still, greatest love story ever told.
I hope you're not implying that the moment in your pic was the first time that nigga went full retard.
Best friend went full #YOLO all the time before it was even popular, truly the best best friend of all romance anime.
THIS FUCKING FIGHT DOE HOLY FUCK
He's alpha as fuck
>Toradora for the first time
nigga u f-ckd up
Greatest love story ever told.
But the best girl(s) doesn't win.
>implying Fed isn't the lonleist month of the year
in my imagination my self insert gets with a-min and she is the winner
>womanlet kicking a full-woman's ass
Only on my chinese cartoons.
>yfw best girl doesn't win
Please understand. Taiga is a delinquent.
Idols should know the basic of martial arts to defend themselves on dangerous situations, no?
>student council president
Didn't she have a stalker for being an idol or some shit like that?
As far as I remember the student president girl knew kendo.
That's the student council president that Kitamura is in love with, not Ami-tan.
I couldn't get past the MC cooking dinner for the bitch who assaulted him in the middle of the night and damaged his home.
Oh, I see.
Still mad Ami lost[/spoiler
This show is going to turn me into a loli.
>i've never cringed so hard before watching an anime...
nigga dont be hatin on no playa by the end of the series kitamura is swimming in dat anime pu$$y
>Still mad Ami lost[/spoiler
That was my bad. Can't use the short cut keys for the spoiler on a tablet so I have to do it manually.
You're not already a loli?
mfw Haruta tells his entire class about his lewd Christmas dream.
>including the part with the dudes
Haruta is under appreciated as a character.
>Super cute girl ask for food
Nigga, is like you don't even want fuck.
I still can't get past the fact that he actually went for Taiga even though Minori actually shows her love for Ryuji.
taiga is still best loli
Ryuji realized that his love for Minori was merely adoration (as stated by based Ami-tan.)
He had grown to genuinely love Taiga.
Is implied he has money and she actually bullied him since high school, as stated by Shinbo she was something like gang leader, she was also very poor, thus making us think Madoka father probably makes meals for her since high school.
Well if it was me I would've shot her at first sight like a true burgerclap, besides I can't cook for someone that's not my waifu.
>still didnt pick the girl who sings beautifully about what she will get in her lunch when she opens her lunchbox
>not picking a autistic like that
Also I can only think Kagura from Gintama whenever I hear Taiga..
At least Taiga was 100% honest and real, unlike Minorin who had this annoying as fuck fake persona of a "genki" girl
ALSO WHAT THE FUCK BEST GIRL STRAIGHT UP WANTS THE DICK WHY NOT TAKE!?
>implying Ryuuji had any clue
>"huh?" "... nevermind"
Ami just kinda wanted the MC's dick because she could not have it. He gave 0 fucks about her in a sexual way and actually treated her like a friend. But she's so controlling and cunt that she needs to have all men worship her.
If the yuuji had shown any interest in her she'd gotten bored soon and move on to the next random guy.
You mean you're not a loli already?
your imagination is shit
Kitamura-kun was the best bro
A real human bean
Are you fucking kidding me? She does literally nothing but laze around, eat like a hog and complain. Now you tell me with that size and lack of training how in fuck can she fight like that? How can she hit that hard? Jesus fuck I'd be worried about twisting her wrist if I'd have to stop one of her hits. Human bodies just don't work that way. With that kind of a routine she should've been a fatass by now.
She practices everyday with her wooden sword.
This and Diao are the only roles she ever had that I enjoyed. The rest pissed me off to no end.
Bullshit. She just keeps that around to look tough. She never practices just does nothing all day besides eating.
I can't. Whole point is fucking retarded. Just because she acts tough she has to be tough too so no one can call her a midget and other shit like that. Yet at the same time they work their asses off to show she's also a frail little thing that wouldn't actually hurt a fly. It makes no fucking sense. She should either have some sort of a routine that gets seen once in a while, running, sword swinging, anything, or at least have some training gear in her house. Literally nothing. Or she should be as fat and/or powerless as she's depicted to be. She sits and lazes around all fucking day and when it comes to food she's a bloody glutton. It just doesn't make any kind of bloody sense.
>Human bodies just don't work that way
>expecting realism from anime
I think you're lost friend.
That scene was so out of place it felt like I was watching a different anime
>being this upset
I'm sensing some issues here
yesterday binged the whole show was legit
>Implying it's supposed to be a series not grounded in reality
No. This shit does not make sense no matter how you try and defend it.
She's a generic tsundershit, don't be so mad. Ryuuki could beat her uppity ass and put her in line whenever he wants, if only he wasn't such a pansy.
she is the Tiger anon... alsoare you fat?
It's not about who could beat her in her condition. That condition itself is highly unrealistic to the point of being ridiculous. Sure she could get beaten up by someone stronger but she also is plenty strong herself. Oh yeah and if the series didn't make it clear enough, Ryuji's also canonically weak as fuck when it comes to power or fighting ability.
>grounded in reality
all she did was throw a punch and then they slapped around a bit before getting bokkens out. what's so unrealistic about that?
have you seen a girl fight? you really don't need to be in peak physical shape to throw a punch
Yeah that fucking explains it. And Ryuji's a fucking dragon that's powerless as fuck.
>mfw I know 3d people just like that.
There's no punching in girl fights, only clawing and hair grabbing
She's been mentioned through and through to be extremely powerful for her size. All the "friendly" hits she delivers aren't really light. Also remember the swimming lesson episode? The guy wasn't surprised at the speed she was going forward from just kicking simply because she had really powerful feet. It does not make sense.
Taiga just has the same retarded strength as every tsundere ever, its just more egregious than usual because she's in a semi-realistic romance instead of a harem or action show.
you seem like such and expert in oriental archetypes anon-kun
Shes a rough person which is unusual for girls in Japan, the violent attitude that she does represent that.
the exaggerated kicking and splashing was to show how determined she was at beating Ami.
Do you just hate Taiga anon?
You need to get out of /fit/
Can we stop talking about worst girl now?
I didn't say it was exaggerated but that it was confirmed by Ryuji right then that she had a lot of power in her legs. He literally wasn't surprised all things considered. And when I say all things considered I mean of course the constant kicks she applies everywhere. I mean for fucks sake she and Ryuji bent a fucking telephone pole. A concrete fucking pole. And going by the way the series talks about him, he hardly had any kind of role in that. A concrete fucking pole.
Also not sure if I hate her really, but her character build really pisses me off for being all over the place.
And what, start talking about Ami so that every other post calls her a bitch or some other pointless insult? /a/ can only discuss Taiga in a civilized way. Otherwise all shit breaks loose.
c-can we talk about Minorin?
>implying best girl didn't win and wasn't totally justified in doing so
Think there was a similar thread earlier today. Entered for five minutes to notice a total shitstorm so I'd advise against it.
Worst girl by far. I skipped most of the ski trip arc because it was boring as shit to see her fuck everything up every 10 seconds
Jesus christ that was dumb you think someone pushed SO FAR would finally say something about her feelings. Hell even Taiga should have said something I dunno man that whole arc/part/3 episodes sucked until he carried her on his back and she was kawaii as shit.
There you go, I told you it wouldn't take long.
why do ppl try to ruin everything? I just saw another bait thread about toradora.
it's old so you'd think the hate would have moved on to SnK or some other entry tier shit.
this is why we can't have nice things
Sure, she is the worst girl by far, she develop her feelings way to late, and even soo, she only start to get them once she notices how good was Ryuuji with Taiga, her love was born dead...I felt sad for her any way.
looks like you missed the whole point of that episode. I'd suggest rewatching it but you already sound upset so I won't even bother explaining it to you
You know, I'd agree with you if you didn't use such poor grammar. Around here learn to capitalize your sentences. Also shit like "ppl" doesn't fly.
I'll give you the ppl point, but a lot of anons don't capitalize every sentence. I'll do it just to satisfy you anon-kun but really, look on the front page now. Not everyone capitalizes and has perfect grammar.
No...I think it's the...
I know. And while it wasn't always perfect this shit only happened in the recent years. Man, I remember when most kinds of improper grammar were immediately pointed out along with, do I dare say, honorifics. Nowadays shit like "How i do x" or "Why i don't y" goes unnoticed. It's becoming a drag to read posts sometimes...
Kitamura was a bro, OP is a faggot.
>a lot of anons don't capitalize every sentence
And they're all faggots
Is that shit when his girlfriend leaves for America to train for an astronaut or sum shit ?
And then dis nigga wen to the USA too.
And all was well.
Man kids go so dramatic over shit like this.
But I have to say. Ryuji is a fucking retard for knocking up that midget. Not only was she horsefaced but also a fucking dwarf, what the hell was he thinking ?!
I guess they fit each other though. An ugly whore and an ugly punk ass fucker.
Back up there /a/non Kitamura was a bro. I never said he wasn't just that scene made me cringe so hard...like there are literally zero adults at this school or some shit.
Looking back on ToraDora the only thing I really still remember is how awesome Ami was. Girl stole the show for at least 10 episodes straight before they started forcing DRAMA into it and kicking her to the backstage.
dont remember that, trollsubs?
Everyone goes full retard in Toradora, but that's kind of the point.
Dumb kids will be dumb kids, but you have to let them be dumb kids and give them the freedom to find the right answers and grow up on their own.
she's a tiger anon
WHEN THE FUCK WAS THIS SCENE?!?!
I've seen it happen a bunch of times irl.
Says the fag who didn't put a fullstop.
>she only start to get them once she notices how good was Ryuuji with Taiga
I-it's trying to communicate with us..
What's so good about this anime? I've lots about it
"It's not about the size of the dog in the fight
It's about the size of the fight in the dog"
RomCom with an actually satisfying ending. Also best girl wins.
>with an actually satisfying ending
Even though I think it's a really good show, I'm not deluded enough to think the ending was satisfying.
According to some people on /a/ it's the GREATEST LOVE STORY EVER TOLD between a man and an ironing board.
Realistically it was a good watch mostly for Ami and Ryujis banter.
One of the only shows where pretty much everyone in the class was an important member of the cast. It was just just protag/love interest/friend. Everyone contributed heavily to the plot in their own way. It also wasn't a sudden shift between mystery girl showing up in town and falling in love in 2 episodes. /a/ will throw a fit if I said it was realistic, but its a hell of a lot more realistically portrayed than most romcom.
To be fair, the show changed/left out a lot that the novels had. She was actually only gone for a month, and I'm pretty sure Kitamura went to America to be with his girl. I also assume Ami and Minori become lesbians.
So is there a place where I can read the novels and/or the complete manga?
Watching this with /a/ while it was airing was hell.
Google "Toradora novel".
The manga is on every manga site.
Yeah, but the manga doesn't seem complete anywhere. Get's to Taiga's dad and just stops.
I'll get around to reading the novel at some point.
Seriously? Watching it with /a/ was the best part.
Jesus, no, the trolling and counter-trolling was unbearable.
Sigh I'll never have a relationship like Toradora...
>that feeling when you'll never have a trainwreck of a relationship like in Toradora
This show was garbage and everyone should feels bad for liking it.
It's impossible to have taste as shit as yours, troll-kun.
based off a novel, so the characters are well written compared to your generic romcom.
Each episode has character development and the relationships between the characters are surprising.
It's a breath of fresh air compared to the formula that most anime follow, with obligatory fanservice/filler episodes etc.
>implying you're not sitting in front of a computer alone
Dude it's okay to cry. I wanted to go to high school in Japan too.
...I only watched Toradora for Ami.....
The PSP Ami end is my canon.
Probably one of the few times. I remember that part after bear-Ryuuji when she ran out of her department, that was nicely animated too.
The subs I downloaded didn't do endcards
He means the PSP game.
The sakuga was the best part of Toradora. It almost made me enjoy the show.
>act like a complete cunt towards the MC's friends
>be a smug cunt for 3 episodes
>continue the airhead facade even after being called out on your shit
>suddenly character development up the ass
>end up being the only sane person in the show
Well that was interesting.
Ami best girl. Taiga good too. Minorin a massive shit.
Is there any doubt that this was the best OP/ED?
Is that why pitbulls, the pound for pound toughest dog breads, are weaker than rottweilers, who are simply bigger than them?
>Christmas cakes never win
What was the point of her character? I don't remember a single memorable scene of her.
Comic relief I guess.
>Not getting her end in the game
fuck I really love endcards but there no one else seems to enjoy them as much as me
What a coincidence, I decided to marathon this a few nights ago.
>tfw I can already tell how it ends
Now that's just messy
Remember, the show is explicitly NOT about when or why the two get together - it's about the two of them learning the difference between adoring a person and being in love with a person.
It always feels like she's about to fight Gilgamesh during the bit where she's holding her bokken on the plane.
I know it's weird but i've seen mdigets kicking the ass of full grown persons sometimes. I don't know if it has to do with the fleixibility in their bodies/muscles but it's true. Sure that doesn't justify Taiga uppercutting people three times her weight, i picture she should use more submission moves or aim at vital areas (like the ass-kicking shorties i've seen irl) than out right boxing and kicking full front like she does but well, maybe it's the agility of her fists rather than the strenght? Both of her brawl victims were pretty much taken off-guard by quick fists aimed to the face, but i don't really know. As the other anons say, this is anime.
Kitamura is obviously by far the best guy in this anime. would fuck him
>The PSP Ami end is my canon.
You know pic related? Well, how about a full version of it, huh?
Would you let Ami play mind games with you to influence your opinions and your decisions?
Yes, I know, >implying you have a choice
yea I definitely loved that about this show a LOT. The adored Minori and Kitamura but they loved each other. You could see it pretty soon during the show. Specifically when she noticed how close they were sitting at Chi's villa even though they were in a big room.
Also fuck that pool scene best scene of the show arguably. Like jesus that's where it was all over for me and I knew best girl would win.
Good man, good man.
One thing I noticed was how, whenever they did something to woo Minori or Kitamura, it was always something you'd see on a wacky sitcom or in a romantic film - Keeping a box of memorabilia, sending love letters, trying to make them scared enough to jump into your arms, that kinda thing. But with each other, it was always how people actually react when they're in love.
Does that make any sense?
Perfect sense dude, she started like him since he said he was her dragon. Like seriously when he said she only cared about him going to the villa because she wouldn't have food she got mad because she knew she loved him but couldn't really express it and it conflicted with her current kitamura phase. Just that entire pool episode was really good..
That title...works surprisingly well.
Marry, kill, fuck
explain why if you feel like it.
Who is more likely to kill me if I try to kill them, Shana or Louise?
You can't kill Louise, you fuck her hard.
You marry Shana and then ignore Taiga for her to be with Ryuji, cuz love story blah blah
>Shana goes yandere on your ass for doing this to her
It'd be fun
You two should definitely go to a nearby bar to wholeheartly resume this conversation with a beer or two.
So which character song is your fav?
For me it's Ami's "Yes!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWiWgNFTeW4
Though Takasu's song gets a honorable mention.
The thought is, I marry Taiga after fucking one of the other two. Eventually, I try to kill the third, and they kill me.
I do believe that Louise is pure sex, as does everyone else.
I don't drink.
taking a screenshot when his mouth is closed
are you retarded
Go to Starbucks then, you hipster.
Funny because I don't drink either
Also have you ever been IN a Starbucks before? That shit smells like over priced coffee
No, because it's too expensive for me
How does one take an indirect crap?
You know, you sorta missed out on a really easy joke, there.
You will never wake up Taiga and see her beautiful doll like figure ;_;
Enjoy Shana killing you for playing with her feelings.
Yeah but too bad Toradora! Portable was fucking horribly written and not satisfying at all.
I mean seriously? Ryuuji gets amnesia? It should of just been a what if Ryuuji went out with Ami, their romance moments, but nooo. In fact it didn't even feel like a romance at all until the very end. Also you get true end by fucking saying that she should do impressions.
Yes i'm 10/10 mad about Toradora Portable. Ami didn't deserve this.
I'm sorry, I haven't watched Toradora in two years. ;_;
I'm sorry /a/ but I find this specimen cute.
Don't crush my heart.
I feel bad.
This guy went through all the trouble of getting semen on his monitor, and I seem to be the only person that noticed.
Why is that a gif?
Nah, better to leave you always wondering.
Trollsubs. Just rewatched this show a week ago, that was definitely not in it.
This. Ami was the queen of bitches.
The VN was fun too.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO WRITE THIS MUCH ON TORADORA
THERE'S MORE WORDS HERE THAN TORADORA'S SCRIPT
Yeah Ami's route was more about Ryuuji getting over Minorin then actual Ami. It had it's moments, can't really expect much from what is essentially a fandisc
You can get the pictures without the dialogues in one of the extra sections.
Also, that mini arkanoid game with Sakura wearing a bunnysuit...my dick...
So...does...Taiga just like give up.
WELP MY BOYFRIEND FORGOT ABOUT ME AND US RUNNING AWAY WHATEVER.
You can even NTR Kitamura, I think. I haven't done the route yet but it's there
No the VN starts at the end of the Christmas party.
After Minorin rejects him
Am I the only one here who thinks Toradora is pretty meh? I mean, the comedy was great but beyond that really I didn't enjoy it.
Actually the romance was pretty crap but I'm happy the best girl won
Don't worry, you aren't alone...I'm not on your side, but there are plenty of people on /a/ that are.
You know, this guy makes some pretty reasonable points, if you can get past the fact that his pronunciation is worse than Microsoft Sam's.
But still, should of just done it like Tomoyo's OVA in Clannad.
Forget the setup, make it more like how cute they are, there hardships of being a couple, how they get over them.
You shouldn't watch chu2 if you don't want to cringe hard.
unless you're legitimately autistic, then you won't feel shit
Why is most anime so cringe-worthy?
Even though I really liked Ami and thought she was the best girl and derserved to win solely by personality alone, I think Taiga and Ryuuji made a good couple. The only thing I'm a bit mad about is the fact that Minorin and Ami don't have a satisfaying conclusion.
I would have liked it if they did something along the lines of Elf: A fairy tale of two, where the first girl who was a slut NTRs the main guy and then the other girls ends up with an even better boyfriend than the first love interest. It was cool.
. . .
Wait you wanted Taiga to NTR Ryuuji?
Dude I love Chuu2 the first season gave me bad fiction lag.
Nothing compared to what Toradora gave me though. Thoroughly depressed right now, marathoned it yesterday and finished late last night.
Now rewatch the first episode and try not to cry.
No, I'm saying that it could have been cool if Ami ended up with someone on par or better than Ryouji. I just mentioned Elf because it was a case of best girl winning someone else's heart that ended up being much better than the MC in the first story.
>she needed to win
She had the win right in het hands, same with Minorin. They both couldve won the Toradora in the first few episodes but Ami decided to be a bitch and hide her feelings while Minorin stepped aside for Taiga.
I was all for this guy until he said Chi fell in love with Ryuji because he saw her as another person.
She liked him because he DIDN'T like her.
I cry everytime
Glad that Kitamura ended up going to 'murica though
But I thought he did say that, in effect...
It's a great injustice that we rarely talk about the best girl in Toradora! The unsung hero of the series
Its a very strange coincidence I just started watching this and ton of threads start popping up. Tbh I am on episode 16 and not only was this last episode completely out of place but much of the rest of the series was not even that great. I think Ryuuji lacks a lot of character, all he does is help people and never shows his feelings except at the cultural festival/race. Taiga tsundere isn't even cute or flustered tsundere like it should be, its more of just bitchiness that becomes really grating over time. Only good moment was at the pool when she rescused Ryuuji. Minorin is too genki but I always dislike genki characters no matter what. Ami is a very under-implemented character that would be nice to see more of but she seems to be fading away. Kitamura is just a bumbling cringe buffoon/bland nice guy who I just want disappear from the anime, and not be a love interest of anyone. Haganai is far better in comparison.
If it helps, the 'genki girl' persona is just a facade to cover up the fact that she's a bit mentally fucked.
I don't think that would help, actually. Sorry.
Don't worry, Ami will only keep fading away from there ;_;
It's ok anon, you tried.
I want to see Taiga's and Ryuuji's married life.
I just want them back...
Thank you, friend.
episode 19 here just ended. Gotta love rewatching this masterpiece
I know that feel..
I wouldn't say it's bad, but I don't really see how great it is either. Maybe high school romances/dramas aren't really my thing.
Me too anon ;_;
So, do you guys think that the fade-to-black at the grandparents' house is when Taiga go impregnated? Or do you think that happened later?
how is Ano Hana?
Should I watch or will it just make me more sad?
Fuck that ending to episode 4, Dekomori is such a cunt
Maybe it's because I love Taiga, but the ending for me was 10/10 feels. I've rewatched the last 3 minutes of episode 25 dozens of times.
It couldn't have happened then, she was gone for a year after that.
I thought that ending was about as good as it could have been, I was pretty satisfied with that
YEar in the anime, 6 weeks in the LN>
Does this count as a recommendation thread, now?
I mean, it's his thread, and that is technically a request for opinions on /a/. /a/ hates opinions.
Either way...it's alright. I mean, the feels can come from the premise alone. If it seems like it will be feelsy, it will be feelsy. If not, then not.
The whole "let's run away right the fuck now" felt a bit weird, but overall it was a strong 9.5/10. I haven't cried that hard in years.
Guess I need to finish reading the LNs then. Any good 4chan recommended source?
But she was gone for a month in the novels.
Right from the part where he sees Taiga, and the music really kicks in is what gets me in the feels every fucking time.
The LN ended like a year after the anime though didn't it?
Just finished Toradora earlier this morning.
I had to choke back bitch tears. I'm so glad the ending was as happy as I hoped it would be.
Sounds possible for the novels then.
Are there any major differences in the LN?
Same time. Anime took notes from the LN.
Spoilers on difference between the LN and Anime.
Taiga and Ryuui's first kiss was on the bridge instead of the grandparents house. Taiga flat out makes out with Ryuuji during the weeding rehearsal scene in the LN. Taiga returns to Ryuuji after 6 weeks in the street on his way to school and to go to class together as it ends.
>Taiga flat out makes out with Ryuuji
Welcome to the club anon, Toradora never lets go. I've watched Clannad AS and other emotional anime, but Toradora is seriously my favorite.
>tfw you will never be with Taiga
Well, she pins him down and tells him "I really really really really... love you" and kisses him for at least half a page worth of passionate dialogue. I personally loved it.
>go to class together as it ends
God dammit it's so lovely my heart can't handle it. Throwbacks to the beginning of the story always get me.
Neat, sounds better then the anime.
Ok, I really have got to read the LNs now.
I've personally never treked through any LN but I just read the Epilogue...and damn son...TEARS AGAIN.
I guess it's heavily implied that they just get married straight out of high school because they rent a house specifically for her but say they're moving out when she graduates.
Personally I liked the ending to the anime better. I mean I know they probably visited each other and shit and talked a lot but her just ending up in that locker and him saying I love you. gah also based kitamura going to america was a really good addition.
That sounds really nice...
I don't want to be with Taiga, I want my youth back.
This song gives me fucking feels.
Oh my god, I've been looking for this forever. I love you /a/non
Pretty sure the complete set on Baka has it too, if you want a good download. It's FLAC, though.
"You know, Ryuuji... I really, really, really, really, really, really..."
"... Love you."
The futon that covered his face was pulled down, Ryuuji felt soft hair touching his face before his forehead touched another forehead, and his eyebrows came into contact with another pair, as though confirming the curvature of his face. His nose touched another nose, sensing his breathing overlapping with another. And finally, within the smell of shampoo, his fiery lips came into contact with another pair of lips. Taiga sat on Ryuuji with all her weight as she came down on Ryuuji's lips. This felt even hotter than the first time, more passionate, as though they could get immersed in it even more.
Way too long to post all of it. Here the full link you can read it: http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Toradora!:Volume10_Chapter5
Kill..... I can't do it
My god why is he so ero kawaii
Okay, replace 'kill' with 'snuggle and tell her you love her and play with her hair on a pleasant night while in bed together'.
Marry Louise so I can play with her hair on a pleasant night while in bed together
Snuggle and cuddle Taiga
Marry all 3 and fuck all 3.
Kill none of them. Fuck your rules.
That was all just supposed to be one answer functioning as a replacement for kill, but sure.
>Tfw it's too late to have a highschool romance.
I think the best scene in the anime is when Ryuuji saves Taiga in the snow . The ending playing lightly just makes it so good
That fucking orange song gets me every time.
I agree, every time it gets stuck in my head I end up rewatching toradora
Marry Louise so I can fuck her all day every day.
Have Shana train me and fight with her no one dies and its fun
Best way of dealing with this
So you're telling me, in this ef whatever the fuck, that the MC is no longer with the first girl who's a slut, becomes like a lesbian and steals the MC's girlfriend away, and then the MC ends up with no one? How the fuck did you like that exactly?
>dfw I had a high school romance
>dfw she recently left me for another guy when we got in college
The only thing I can say for him is he has some balls for the stunt he pulled in OP
other than that he's an annoying bastard
I kinda know that feel, except it was because I was an idiot a little over a year ago. Still comes back to haunt me on occasion
>she left me for 3____ guys when we got in college
I was impressed, not even mad, quite a whore.
Would it be polygamous waifuism or trigamous waifuism?
The difference between polygamy and bigamy/trigamy is that in the former, all the girls know of each other and there is an agreement. In the latter, the wives don't know about each other, so it's like a really dedicated form of cheating.
But I like your answer more
She's worth better. She deserves someone who truly loves her etc etc
However I agree she's best girl and the best written too in my opinion at least.
It depends. I think we've seen from all 3 of the anime they were in that they don't like sharing their lover, but maybe I'd be able to convince them, since they're all basically the same person.
I also kinda know that feel. I'm here for you anon.
Alright, so, how about this...
Fuck, marry, snuggle and tell her you love her and play with her hair on a pleasant night while in bed together.
Other girls can either be left out, or can be given a custom message.
My highschool romance was absolutely horrific. Her parents never knew because they were overbearing as fuck, and her father chased off one guy with a machete. It was long distance for more than a year, and it fell apart when I moved back to my hometown to be near her. I stuck with her for 2 1/2 years, then she left me when she went to her sisters wedding and got fucked by a guy named Jamal.
She told me she was saving it, for me, for when we were finally able to live together.
Sage for blahg, but guys, this stuff doesn't happen. That thing, both gentle and sweet... I don't think it exists.
Louise didn't seem to mind sharing Saito with the other girls later on. So if they really are clones of each other, they would come to an agreement.
But if I had to share Louise with anyone, I'd kill them first.
You didn't find a girl as pure as Taiga.
But Toradora was the story of how the thing was created, was it not?
Maybe she was just stopping you from finding it.
And I'm sorry, dude.
At any rate, it's not worth the search anymore. I could rattle on about 2d, or I can be honest and say, I just don't think that person exists. I'm no saint myself.
But thank you.
Sorry to hear that fellow /a/non. Mine was also long distance for 2 years after high school. That part really didn't bug me at first, but it definitely made it more difficult
Ami should have won
Hidan no Aria any good?
Honestly the best part of the story was that. Ryuuji was some nice guy who was mistake for a delinquent. Taiga was some delinquent. Ryuuji turned Taiga into a sweet girl. It was the best.
It's just the best way of not having shana killing you for cheating on her or something
The interesting thing is that she could have won easily, if she wanted to. Dem mind games.
But, like everyone else in the cast, she was shipping Ryuuji x Taiga.
Man, I really wanted to enjoy Hayate no Gotoku, but you can't even call the MC Nagi's "Boyfriend". Nagi's also legitimately young. I think Hayate no Gotoku doesn't belong on that list. Besides, isn't there even someone ELSE who's MC's girlfriend in that?
Hina, Maid, Hamster, and Athena
Sorry, what moments are you talking about where Takasu would of fallen in love with Ami if Ami didn't decide to mind games?
Pretty sure he resented her. Takasu did not enjoy being fucked with.
Well, I can't think of a specific moment, sorry.
It just makes sense in my mind.
My brain is failing, today. Once again, apologies.
B-baka why are y-you getting flustered for... I just wanted to know what moments...
I wouldn't say resented... She was just never upfront. I feel how she acted was somewhat reasonable for the whole situation.
First of all, who the fuck calls Ryuuji that?
Second of all, I don't really think Ami could have gotten him to fall in love with her. He liked her as a friend and all, but he was never in love with her, and had no reason to be. He hated the fact that she was 2-faced as fuck, the only way I could see them two getting together is if Taiga/Minorin didn't exist.
I-I said I don't know, y-you idiot!
Stop b-badgering me with these questions, stupid idiot!
I liked it but the plot gets pretty ridicules fast
Fuck me, I have one episode left to finish it and I have to go to work. God damnit
Don't forget the OVA
A guy that becomes a master assasin when turned on?
It's pretty stupid and I haven't even seen 1 min of it.
Question: Was the last scene in the OVA set after HS?
I don't think I've ever watched the OVA having watched the series a while ago. Is the OVA even worth watching? Does it add anything to the afterstory or is it set in the middle of the story?
Middle of the story. It does have a cute scene at the end.
>It does have a cute scene at the end.
I'd like to think it's a time skip to after Tiaga returns since her and Ryuuji's friends are obviously pushing them together.
Yeah, I can understand why I wouldn't watch it now. I looked at a summary and I usually only watch OVAs/Movies/etc. that add to the story in a significant way or are epilogues.
Did you actually jizz on your monitor or did yoy just fling it? I'm genuinely curious.
Pretty sure that pic's been around for a while.
What? When was this scene? OVA?
Nah Haruta was telling his dream to the class. Forgot what episode it was though.
It was the episode right before the Christmas Party I think.
Because it was a dream about the Christmas party.
>people aren't posting in the Toradora thread
What seems to be the problem?
It's not a "Is Taiga moe?" thread.
Not enough Toradora these day...breaks my heart
Was busy with RL stuff. Don't worry, I'm still lurking.
Those were some good threads.
I still need more Louise for my pure sex folder
Does anyone have the gif of the second OP near the end where he puts the bento on her desk and they look at each other and smile.
I really really like that part
Das a cute girl.
Are you me, /a/non?
Is Ami moe?
She's pure sauce.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS BIRD?
Don't be mean, Inko-Chan means no harm.
You disrespect a member of Ryuuji's family!
So what were her actual issues? They hint that she's neurotic and 'off' but like what, are her parents fighting/dead? Why is she so fucking weird?
Taiga isn't tsundere..
Well, she's both tsun and dere.
That isn't Vanilla Salt.
More like Vanilla Slut
I just finished the Christmas episode and I don't think I can keep going at this pace. It hurts.
Fight through it anon, it's brilliant.
I found a Sherlock Ami.
It is true to her character.
Just keep moving foward.
not bad, but fell out of my bed at "keetamurah"
With laughter, with rage, or did the act of mispronunciation conjure a physical force that sent you flying?
All of the above are valid.
I misspelled every word in that post at least once. I think something's wrong with my fingers.
Don't worry, you just need to make a deal with a god, obtain its powers, beat Shana's friend tonear-death then beat Shana and enslave her until she loves you again.
Worked like a charm for this guy here.
How is Toradora the greatest love story ever told? I watch half of it and dropped when the OP changed.
It had some few amusing moments and a good character in Minori, but other than that, it was pretty boring and had a very poor plot IMO.
Did I miss some kind of stupendous, revolutionary end or something?
That's not quite how it went.
Nah it's shit don't worry
Oh yeah, forgot you have to constantly mention all the dickish things you're doing are for her happiness. That's guaranted to solve everything.
I know I won't convince you.
Not like I care, Louise is better
>i will never be able to experience the kind of love at the end of this show
>i missed my chance in high school and never found it
>tears everywhere every time i rewatch from a mix of happiness for the characters and immeasurable sadness that i will never have that
You probably still have more of a chance than we do, if that helps.
Sure, all have you to do is be ceo/10k a month with a Maserati and you'll find "love" anon. lel western society.
Lets pick this thread back up, I'm home from work and can finally finish my rewatch
Taiga is cute.
It's time for
the feels to come flooding back
Man...starting it yesterday and finishing it in one day was the worst/best decision of my life...OF MY LIFE.
Gave me a fuck ton of fiction lag...I'm really sad I'll never have a relationship like this. ; - ;
I normally marathon it when I do my rewatches... but due to classes and work I have been unable to. hard life
What is fiction lag?
It's like when you get done reading or watching something really good that's set in a fiction world, you kind feel that post-depression or the feelings that you had during the piece. More or less.
Yea I got it with Toradora and Chuu2...It makes you really sad all day and want to live like that.
Oh fuck I get that a lot.
I wonder how much people get it from watching live action romances instead of animated ones.
And the episode just ended. Every time.
I'm sure people do, I don't get it nearly as much, though. I don't know why it's so much more difficult for me to get into live action shows, but it is
Seriously I don't understand westernized romance at all. I don't want to sound like a big weeb but it's all fucked up with prince/princess. Like the guy in the video said toradora got it right. Love it like this big huge confusing thing we don't get. It made me feel better about my highschool gf leaving and at the same time gave me hope for the future and shit. But damn man depressed as fuck.
that happen just when the chinese cartoons are good right?
are you talking about riyogaa's video?
It happens when it's good and makes you envious I guess.
It's weird I'm a 19 y.o. half NEET I'm going to school kind of but not really putting any effort or time into it. I really hate life now and watching shit like this makes me happy until it's over then it just makes me sad and want to live like that.
First time watching the OVA, this is fucking hilarious
Rewatching the series the first time and I think I enjoy it more.
Don't die on me /a/nons
Can you give it to me straight boys, is Toradora worth watching?
On one hand I've got my animebro, who I watch stuff with on the weekends on the widescreen. We share very similar tastes and it's only a few shows I can think off where we've disagreed on stuff. He watched Toradora in his own time and came out thinking it extremely mediocre and stuffed with tired tropes. He made it to episode 6, just because so many people praise it, before he called it quits.
On the other hand, I've got a lot of other people I know who watch anime, who say Toradora is excellent and a great romance anime. One of the best even. But I've disagreed with many of their opinions in the past, unlike animebro.
Taiga looks like a qt3,14 so I actually want this show to be good, but people I know seem to very much be in the "love it or hate it" camps.
>Can you give it to me straight boys, is Toradora worth watching?
Short answer, yes.
OP here I marathoned it not knowing what I was getting myself into. I don't know if marathoning it is the best idea but I can say it's DEFINITELY worth watching. The entire premise of the show is amazing and unique there are close to zero real true defined "troupes" in toradora if you actually understand the character.
I'm here for you anon!
Alright, thanks. I was really on the fence with this show, because my animebro told me to not bother unless I had a boner for tsundere types, but I'll give it a shot.
Protip: "opinions are like assholes" applies equally to anime. From experience I can tell you that you just have to watch it yourself.
My little sister is a psychology student, and she doesn't get or appreicate Eva. Go figure.
By watching Toradora, I transcended humanity and became Taiga's husband.
I want a palmtop Taiga.
Your animebro has shit taste.
Find our what romances he did like.
He's asleep, so I can't ask him right now.
Off the top of my head, he very much enjoyed Clannad, when it was focused on Nagisa and Tomoya and he mentioned another one that I haven't actually seen... Nodame Cantabile? Something like that, he liked that one a lot too.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you're kind of new to this.
Google "/a/ wiki," then go through there.
I watched Clannad AS before watching Toradora. Clannad was great, but I ended up loving Toradora way more.
..And then they were cast in the Monotagi series a bit later on.
cat + mock-bee
>And then they were cast in the Monotagi series
Monogatari, you mean? One more reason for me to pick it up.
This show ruined Christmas
fuck the lead guy (Ryuuji?)
fuck teenagers in general
You crazy nigga. Best Taiga Christmas.
Minori deserved to win. They loved each other, Ryuuji and her. Fuck everything!
Just being Best Girl
I like you.
Taiga is love.
Taiga is life.
Man I just watched the ending of this series AGAIN and dang never fails to bring a tear to my eye.
I'm glad I watched this BEFORE valentines day.
Oh man I know exactly what you're talking about.
>tfw marathoned whole Toradora in one night
Anyone has a longer version of this gif with Taiga looking back?
Sorry to reply late, but still yes.
captcha: stark usedcum
Ryuuji is the best housewife
>thread has been up for two days
>nobody has posted nearly enough TaigaxRyuuji
Only one I got.
You're a swell guy, anon. I wouldn't mind if you kept going.
I don't have much more, unfortunately ;_;
why does this make me feel so goddamn comfy?
I appreciate anything you got.
mah nigga u need to watch seto no hanayome... u will laught till bug!
flcl and angel beats its a good idea to watch too
Ryuuji, you sly dog.
>Error: You must wait 26 seconds before posting an image reply.
Why does this keep happening? Is this some new bullshit moot added to prevent imagedumps?
My last pic is a dupe of >>101518282
You're a good man, thanks.
Wow. I'm literally the only person in the world who never liked Ami. Always though she was a stupid cunt.
no you're not
I get you. Only live action romance movie I liked was Amelie. It's just... magical.
That would be Minori. It's okay, we all get confused sometimes.
Thanks anon, you're the best.
I'm gonna be really sad when this thread ends...you guys want me to make a new one?
Don't do that. We don't want these wonderful threads to turn into generalthread faggotry, do we?
That's okay I'll just call it a RyuujixTaiga thread. I don't think anyone has a problem with that right...
A RyuujixTaiga picdump without this image? Disgrace.
There is a board for posting cute stuff, you know.
Don't ruin these things man. Look at the festering shithole that is KSG, and remind yourself that repetition is a hell almost impossible to escape from.
>tougher than pitbulls
rottweilers are soft as shit
GAH this one gets me every time I don't know why! Just because it looks the best and is the most reasonable and it's like "dw /a/non-kun love exists"
this thread is literally 2 days old
I know the board isn't as active as ~2009 /a/ but holy shit
This needs to be answered because I want to know if the OVA is worth watching...
It's worth watching, don't worry.
Is it after the final scene? Or where is it in the timeline?
Just randomly somewhere in the middle. Only the last minute seems like it's after the final scene. But it's still a fun episode.
It's before the ending but it's nothing special. Personally, I didn't like it because it was a complete filler episode. No wonder why they left it out of the series.
I want to ride the tiger.
The very definition of cringeworthy.
The last 3 minutes are kind of cute, and worth watching, imo.
Seems like it's somewhere between episode 14-16. I thought it was great, reinforces how Taiga and Ryuuji were shipped together by everyone.
I don't necessarily think they were "shipped" together but I think everyone already knew that they loved each other deep down.
The only ones not willing to accept it were Ami and Minori and that kind of fucked them up for awhile.
Can we just...this part...my god...
The tears are flowing and they just won't stop. I'm heading out but when I get back this thread better not be dead!
Good point. I would also include Minori in that group though, she knew they loved each other deeply and didn't want to break them apart. Only Ami was annoyed by it and wanted to go after Ryuuji, or wanted Minori to go after him.
But /ksg/ is fun!
>leaves thread at 453 posts
>expects it to be alive when he gets back
It'll happen anon, bump
But I just bumped the thread, anon.
Have we discussed which TsunRie is best?
Well, we did Fuck, Marry, Kill. I tried to spice it up with Fuck, Marry, Snuggle and tell her you love her and play with her hair on a pleasant night while in bed together.
People didn't take to that.
She's the only kugimiya I really like.
She was pretty okay in season 1.
She became the typical beat the shit out of the MC for everything character later though so I wouldn't marry her.
She is still okay at times though.
Not that I'd want to kill her but fuck would I not want to marry her.
Of the three she's the worst.
That's just my own opinion though so don't get mad Taiga-fags.
>mfw I was the guy who posted the first marry, kill, fuck
>mfw this thread has been up for so long
>mfw no face because at work
Marry Loise so I can fuck her all day every day.
Fuck Taiga for cutests sex ever.
Train with Shana because why would you kill such a girl
I remember being pretty mad at the show for making MC bland as fuck. At first he was like "hurr-durr my face scareh" but it was dropped instatly so i didn't like it that much.
That being said, did I miss out on something ? Like maybe I was so butthurt that I didn't notice it's other great qualities ? It was pretty sweet and had a couple of great moments but thanks to MC I couldn't really apreciate the love story.
Also what is the deal with this glasses guy ? I completely forgot about him
Rewatch and pay attention to other stuff
THE RIDE NEVER ENDS
why would you do this ;_;
serious question, do you think that taiga and ryuji saw each other between the year that she went to her mom's?
because at the very end he tells her he loves her and she gets super embarrassed... you would think she wouldnt be embarrassed by this time right?
to ease the pain.
have some Taiga.
IT WAS 6 WEEKS
ANIME DID THIS THE WRONG WAY
ALSO FUCK NO KISSU AT THE END
FUCK THAT SHIT
>complaining about little differences that ultimately made the ending the best ending in a romcom
I want a kiss at the ending, not a headbump
I realized that I hate full blown tsundere girls thanks to this anime. This and Working!
Fucking hate those bitches.
Working was shit in this regard, fucking Inami or Inanami ruined the whole thing for me.
Took me a few days but I finally finished it. That ending was not quite what I expected, but it was nice.
I only wonder what that hidden thing was that they were talking about. Probably oranges I bet.
adrenaline+extreme anger= ferocious strength and speed
Also she's the fucking tiger. wtf is wrong with your brain? She wouldn't be the tiger if she wasn't fierce as fuck.
>And Ryuji's a fucking dragon that's powerless as fuck.
the dragon represents yin and while strong, is patient and wise.
It's like you didn't even look at the metaphors.
I thought it was love
This will probably be gone by the time I get back from work, but:
Shit like this makes me glad I ever started getting into anime, manga, and LN's.
Are you sure it's not oranges?
I love you too anon.
Greatest love story ever told bro. Believe it.
Just the ending where she's in the locker hiding from him ugh son...and they quote the beginning of the show. GAH so much character development...
I find this weird. How can someone who has watched Toradora full can not like Ami-chan?
Even if i like Taiga best i still find Ami's character very enjoyable and the one who grows more over the course of the series. She's a bro, an interesting person to meet and also the one who frequently moves the plot. I even understand people not liking Taiga more than people not liking Ami as the palmtop Tiger can be annoying to some people tastes. It's so rare tofind people who dislike Ami, you're an interesting person anon, such an uncommon taste you have.
What does the tiger represent?
I thought it was the chocolate-things from that one later episode.
I'm not the anon you replied to, but I also didn't find Ami to be that interesting. If she didn't go along with all the shipping of the other characters, why didn't she more seriously pursue Ryuuji? I thought she was a good character, but definitely not my favorite.
But she did go along with the shipping of the characters.
But she kept badgering Minori to go after Ryuuji anyway?
I don't remember her telling Minori that she should go after him. I think she suggested all the characters come clean with their motivations so they can get closure, but I don't remember anything that specific.
Throughout Chinese cartoons history, the tiger has incited a sense of both awe and admiration: its prowess, its ferocity, its beauty, and the harmony of the opposites.
The tiger is full of life and embodies the spirit and drive to achieve and make progress.
Yes, when you think about it, Minorin and Kitamura are just highschool crushes for Ryuuji and Taiga.
They literally put Minorin and Kitamura on fucking pedestal, saving their picture and calling them perfect and shit. The whole blushing and fidgeting is evident.
Love is all about trust.
Ryuuji and Taiga spend the whole series together. They know each other weaknesses and insecurities, and willing to help solving each other's problem.
So, how well do the tiger and dragon go together?
Toradora was one of the first anime I watched that wasn't particularly popular or notable overseas. I think I watched it right after it finished airing. I loved it and it can largely be accredited with getting me deeper into anime, and by extension, /a/.
This thread has inspired me to rewatch it, and hopefully it is as good as I remember it.
Sage for blogshit.
You will never watch any more of their adventures.
funny, i like Toradora because of Taiga and Ryuuji as a couple.
Good romance make you feel like a father seeing his daughter off on her wedding day.
Be the Taiga, anon.
And remember the difference between love and adoration. And also find the thing that is hidden.
This. Watamote made me cringe infinitely times more; I even had to drop it.
I cringed so hard I dropped it 10 mins into the first episode after forcing myself not to drop it like 5 times before.
Ooh! 500 posts!
This is the final bump.
Taiga is cute.
>finished Toradora a month ago
>still fucking depressed about it
Dammit /a/, I don't know what to do
>no "Is Louise moe?" thread to pick up
i got you anon
That's how it had to end, fuck.
If it helps, we got an epilogue where they're married and Taiga's pregnant with triplets.
Does that count?
When does Taiga actually wear that black outfit?
When she comes back in the anime.
and then doesn't kiss Ryuji
do you even watch the show ?
Well, I remember that one scene, but I can't think of any other time.
