Toradora Ending


Tsundere light novel series Toradora! is confirmed as concluding in the tenth volume, to be released March; this is thought to coincide neatly with the ending of the anime, for an ending many are already praising for its discipline in refraining from becoming a long and drawn out franchise more interested in merchandising than in coherent narrative.

Of course whether the ending will be any good or not is another matter…

As the anime has reached volume seven of the light novel series, this leaves three volumes to be covered in six episodes, which seems unambiguously to leave no room for a second season or otherwise (unless rather flagrant liberties were taken with the plot).

In fact the anime attracted attention from the start for the rate at which it consumed the original work; in retrospect it would appear this was a deliberate choice based on coordination between the production staff and the author, an arrangement some might like to see more often.

Many fans seem quite satisfied that both works have taken the decision to end cleanly and with finality, though there is the expectation of spin-off works. What will become of the manga edition, or how the game will fit in, is not clear.

    Toradora is a great anime would really love to see a season 2 of it if possible.

    We all knew it would end with ryuugi and taiga getting together. But since the main characters already had a crush and didn't have any previous relation, I thing the question was seeing HOW. That's how I see it, anyway

    Yeah, you're right. I guess it was more about the journey than anything. Still, it would've been nice to have a less predictable ending for once...

    Atleast he realizes that he's done with the series and doesn't want to drag it out like School Rumble or god knows how many others. Here is to hoping that it has a great ending and the anime as well. Now I want the anime and novels licensed in the US.

    Dude today three shows have been ruined by spoilers for me. So right now I need to shut down my computer and then do a memory wipe, which involves a large baseball bat. I'll be online in a few days.

    It's easy! Just learn a few simple words, and start posting on Japanese language message boards! For example, Gomen ne wakarimashta iadakimusu yo?

    WTF everyone knows you can master Japanese if you immerse yourself with their animu...

    though the first words are probably hentai, loli, and ecchi

    All that happens when you mention fansubs in a venue like this is that all the would be Crunchy Roll entrepreneurs start spamming their sites, so please restrain yourselves, or at least take it to the forums.

    cool. I can't wait to see how the ending will go. Most likely Ryuji with Taiga, though I like Ami better

    spoiler: Ryuuji ran away with Taiga after a fight with his mother. Minorin who had liked Ryuuji, let him go as she knew Taiga like him more. Ami meanwhile was in despair as she also like him but had problem of her own.

    Wow you're an ass. Just because you put spoilers right there doesn't mean that you can say the summary of the rest of the series. If you want to do that create a topic or something then link it here, there are no spoiler tags so this was amazingly easy to accidentally read.

    Ryuuji hugs Taiga, she BAWWS ronery on the streets, Minori spies, Minori says LOLNO Ryuuji, then he gets the flu. This happens after episode 18. End Volume 7.

    Coordinated endings are fantastic. Worked really well for Honey and Clover as well as Aria. Good to get closure.

    Yeah, Ryuiji x Taiga ending seems inevitable, but I'm happy with it. They liked Ami and Kitamura based on crushes and tried to hook up, not like in other anime where the leads have some kind of past history together. They slowly realize they fit best together and care for one another.

    Hmmm, 3 vol in 6 episode. Well, they covered vol 6 in 2 episode by hacking out most of Ami's contributes so as long as they include Ami's bout with Minori I'll be happy. Ganbare Ryuuji!!!

    This is why coordinated endings are good. Douchebags who find it amusing to spoil without putting some type of aforementioned warning won't be able to spoil the ending, as it does not yet exist.

    But personally, as long as Ryuuji gets with one of the girls, it's a good end in my book. All three are good characters, it wouldn't be like Ichigo 100% where I raged over the "wrong" girl being picked.

    Oh, and fuck pie fights.

    i'm hoping it's not taiga. i like her and all, but i know people who refused to watch this series because they just went "meh, ryuuji and taiga will get together at the end so blablabla do not want"

    i'm hoping to prove them wrong so that they can watch it and appreciate it

    TBH, I think its going to end with Ryuuji and Taiga but i'd prefer Ami and Ryuuji since Ami hasn't had much screen time lately.

    When I started watching, I badly hoped the two main characters weren't gonna wind up together, because there needs to be more series where two people are great friends AND wind up with the other people they really fancied, even though they may have a few feelings for eachother.

    I'm not up to date on the episodes, but I've sadly accepted that it's not at all unlikely Taiga and Ryuuji will hook up together ;_;

    we all knew it was going end up like.
    But I don't know, it really grew on me,
    I really wouldn't mind a Ryuji/Taiga ending that much.
