Ok, so I'll say this first, this post is a complete 100% spoiler post. If you haven't watched 25, clicking Continue Reading will kill all the thrill Toradora ever built up. Hell, if you're still reading on anyway proceed at your own risk.

When I first started watching Toradora I thought all it was was just another moe flick like Hayate no Gotoku with no real story or another novel adaptation that was just made to sell merchandise licenses with like Zero no Tsukaima or a failure of an anime with a rushed ending like Shana (and ZnT). Contrary to my expectations, it turned out to be really good. And its not just good because it exceeded my very low expectations for it, but it was good because it actually impressed me more than CLANNAD, which was made by the gods at KyoAni itself. It turns out even commoners can shine.

... is what I can so hear Haruta saying now. I mean he doesn't say it but I can hear the voice so loud its deafening. This is precisely the thing I love about Toradora. It really explains the world around, that even if you aren't getting anywhere, the rest of the world is. Onee-chan ja nai yo. GAARUFURIENDO!

If there's one thing I like about JC Staff, its the recent trend of them chibifying and comickizing the anime characters from anime that they animate that all started when they started their amazing Shakugan no Shana-tan series. I can't wait for them to do a chibified version of Nagi-tan and Hayate-tan as well. Yeah. This is just a moe/kawaii explosion post.

Toradora is getting dark. I LIKE IT. It's about time the story has thrown away its total comedy policy and give us some serious drama and development. I was surprised when Kihara started becoming really aggressive in attempting to be with Kitamura, though I don't see her having any plan to take advantage of it. Meanwhile, the entire class has been lagging on the love tangle that's going on now and it's not helping.

Picture 1 in [Rie Kugimiya]

If there's one type of girl that has garnered an incredible amount of fandom in the anime audience nowadays, its the short, flat-chested tsundere girl. (Tsundere is an article on wikipedia, for those of you who want to know more) Somehow this type of girl has become so popular, it has become a must-have ingredient in the comedy anime genre that a significant number of anime have become runaway successes simply by exploiting the very antics of an insecure, short-tempered, egoistic girl with a childish voice, in short, tsundere. Of all the voice actors giving life to these girls, Kugimiya Rie is arguably one of the most famous seiyuu to ever play the part of these girls' souls. This is for all of you who still aren't seiyuu aware either because (1) you skip the OPs and EDs (2) you can't read Japanese, and just don't bother.
