What went right?

Had more forced drama than a modern mexican telenovela.

I think the real reason people like Toradora is because it looks pretty. The story is cliche and predictable garbage, but the art and animation are so damn good.

Why do people like Taiga so much?

Story is realistic and because it starts off more as a comedy than a romance, the audience gets really attached to the characters before shit gets real. It's the only good romance anime.


Taiga makes a genuine love confession in the second episode.

It was a chuuni time.

It didn't have Ghost Banri.

And gets immediately rejected. We all laugh at her failure and then Ryuji takes her under his wing and they have cute SoL episodes without much serious romance before the swimming episode where Ryuji almost drowns. And even then, it's only for a brief flash.
Seriously, the fact that the serious romance doesn't really ramp up till the end is what made this show good. We got to know the characters as people instead of them being like two dolls held by a child being forced to kiss.

did you know that due to the way the body balances the weight of all the various fluids in order to distribute pressure equally without causing damage to delicate organs, the left testicle is always a little bit lower than the right testicle.
just a little asymmetry in the body that not many people know about and it's awkward to talk about it in real life.

Tsundere done right

Everything except Ami.

This is a meme show, right? It's basically Keit-Ai without the parallel universe thing.

Ami was best girl.

>We got to know the characters as people

Except for glasses dude, he was always boring.

he was pretty underused in the first half

lol that's the only flaw with that anime. Other than that its a great homage to Toradora


A boy falls in love with a girl.
Unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with the girl’s best friend.

blah blah blah

While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

>blah blah blah
the best blah blah blah ever user

They followed the script and didn't add shitty filler

Oh god, the drowning incident. That alone made Taiga one of the best heroines in anime/manga/LNs.

It's too bad the TV version compressed the series so much, though. There was less of a sense of "now we dark" after the fight in the light novels because the events were spread out more.
