“She's hot. She will also kill you.”
Toradora! is a comedy/drama show that aired on TVTokyo and the Adult Swim Drama block in America. Because the show was mostly based on a light novel series mostly read by people that watched Friends and nothing else, it also has the same target audience; which means it's most watched by women, gays, Icelanders, people that masturbate to Sonic characters, Flame Hazes, Haruhiists, off duty Magical Girls and its most devoted fans, bitchy student council presidents. It was created in 1993 to cash off on the slew of new porno games.
Like most animes, the location is focused at a school setting. As 75% of anime is.
The programme features six main characters: Taiga Aisaka, Ryūji Takasu, Minori Kushieda , nerdy guy (Kitamura Yusaku), Ami Kawashima, and Sumire Kanō. The characters would frequently get into horrible problems everyday, starting with Taiga beating Ryuji, Minori acting crazy, Ami mocking Taiga, Taiga beating up Ryuji again and repeat.
Ryuji Takasu (voiced by Keanu Reeves) is a scary
douchebag nice person that everyone in the school is scared of. Due to how his eyes look, he has no hopes of getting a girlfriend anytime soon. After being greeted by his hungover bitch of a mom in the morning, Ryūji goes to school and is happy to find that he gets to be in the same class with his best friend Yūsaku Kitamura (Orlando Bloom) and a prostitute he has a crush on, Minori Kushieda (Katy Perry). However, it is then that he unexpectedly knocks into "the school's most dangerous animal of the highest risk level" (or, simplified as bitch)—Taiga Aisaka (Avril Lavigne)—who just happens to also be in his class, and is a good friend of Minori. Since Ryūji spends a lot of time with Taiga, he has opened up to her world and to a side of her that most people do not see. She makes him her personal manservant, getting him to do all her household chores (cooking and cleaning). The two also try to help each other improve the way people view them. However people they know from school start to become curious about their strange relationship and rumors begin to spread about them behind their backs. Ryūji and Taiga start getting along more and eventually become a couple.

edit Ryūji Takasu
Ryūji Takasu is a young man
douchebag frustrated at trying to look his best as he enters his second year of high school and sucking even more at life. Ryūji goes to school and is happy to find that he gets to be in the same class with his best friend Yūsaku Kitamura, and a girl he has a crush on that (prostitute) bitch, Minori Kushieda. Due to the misunderstandings due to his looks, as well as how he grew up, he tends to look down on himself and lacks self-confidence. Despite this, he is rather calm in most situations and is responsible, smart and has great grades, even when compared to Yūsaku Kitamura, his best friend. Ryūji has learned to be self-sufficient. He is good at cooking and keeping everything in his house "clean" (to the point of obsession), and also excels at sewing. Eventually he and Taiga become a couple.
edit Taiga Aisaka
Taiga Aisaka is a girl who just happens to also be in Ryūji's class, and is a good friend of Minori.. She has a well-regulated and beautiful appearance though is unable to stomach company from others. Due to her often snapping at others in brutal ways and she is little. She is given the nickname "Palmtop Tiger" (手乗りタイガー Te Nori Taigā). Her under-developed body and her added nickname has given her a lolicon complex which in turn serves to give her a negative attitude and facial expression. Taiga Aisaka is known as "the school's most dangerous animal of the highest risk level" (she really is a bitch). Taiga gets upset easily and is considerably klutz. She is also brutally honest
pinhead, typically when she is yodeling out at someone. Ryūji described her as a doll figuratively. At the beginning of the story, she is infatuated with his best friend Yūsaku Kitamura.Due to this, Taiga and Ryūji team up to help each other get into a relationship with each other's best friend. Taiga comes from a rich family, but she has moved out to live on her own due to "family issues". Despite coming from a well-to-do family, her life with them is very difficult because of various problems. Her father's business went bankrupt and he ran away, leaving Taiga in the care of her mother who was already remarried and had a new family of her own. Taiga has difficulty getting along with her step-father and half-sibling and since then, she has taken to living on her own. Since she came from a privileged household, she does not know how to do anything. When she meets Ryūji and learns of his domestic violence, she ends up relying on Ryūji to clean up after her messes, carries her when she falls down or passes out, lick her from head to toe, jack her off, dress and undress her, kiss her ass (both figuratively and literally), be used as human table & footstool for her ladder, and sorts of other perverted activities. Aside from sleeping in her own house, and going to school, she spends most of her time at Ryūji's house; so much so that she is almost considered a member of his family.and gets nervous every time he appears around her. Though she treats Ryūji badly at first, her feelings begin to change as she spends more sex with him. They later become a couple.
edit Minori Kushieda
She is a prostitute that has a crush on Ryūji Takasu. Minori is a girl in Ryūji's class and is a close friend to Taiga. Minori is also known by the pet name "Minorin" (as a form of friendly affection). Minori is always smiling and cheerful. She is very athletic and is the captain of the girl's softball club at school. She holds many slave jobs. She is a glutton when it comes to food, but is also constantly combating with dieting, calling herself a "diet warrior". Minori gets a thrill out of being scared. Despite her air-headed tendencies, she is very perceptive, and is three of the few people to see Ryūji for the gentle person he is, and is also not fooled by Ami's acts of innocence. Minori proves to have a rather good insight of other people.
edit Yusaku Kitamura
Yusaku is a student in Ryūji's class and is his best friend. He is a nerd. Yusaku wears glasses, and has a diligent personality. A running gag is that he will appear out of nowhere behind Taiga and Ryūji when they are discussing a "plan of attack" to get their crushes.
edit Ami Kawashima
Ami is Yusaku's childhood friend who transfers into his class midway through their second year of high school. She is very beautiful and even works as a model and is seen as the mature one of the group. After she transfers schools, she temporarily stops modeling. However, she still continues to go to the gym readily and maintains an anorexiac slim figure. She is always kind and generous towards others, though this is merely a deception. In truth, she is arrogant and will not hesitate to use abusive language towards others., Ami shows her true colors during her first meeting with Taiga, but the tables are turned when Taiga counterattacks by slapping her. Since then, Ami and Taiga have been enemies, with Ami becoming one of a few who can tease Taiga at against her own will. Despite all this, Ami still sometimes envies Taiga since she can always be honest. Ami has a love interest in Ryūji, asking him if he would love her real self and give her a second chance. She has a deep understanding of the relationship situation going on between Minori, Ryūji, Taiga, and herself. She must be a stalker.
edit Bitches and Sluts
edit Yasuko Takasu
Yasuko is a hungover bitch of a mom in the morning. Just like your mom! She is 33, though she refers to herself as eternally 23, she has large, F-cup-sized breasts. She works at a hostess bar named Bishamontengoku where she goes by the name "Mirano" and singlehandedly supports her two-member family financially. However, she has a childish personality and since she works, she entrusts the household chores to Ryūji. She instantly takes a liking to Taiga and already regards her as a member of her family, getting depressed when Taiga will not appear for dinner. However, she does get angry when woken up early. Which is not very hot. AT ALL!! Though she tells Ryūji his father died before he was born, the truth is they were never married; he left her before Ryūji was born, and she raised her son by herself.
edit Yuri Koigakubo
Yuri is the 29 year old homeroom teacher of Ryūji's class. She likes to do things at her own pace and is timid towards Taiga's way of speaking out. Since her twenties are almost over, Yuri is in a hurry to get married soon and she even tries to dress well so as to be able to get into a relationship quicker. After she becomes 30 without getting married, she develops a twisted and depressed personality, which is further developed by Taiga because when Taiga talks about her, she emphasizes her single status. She has an interest in real estate which is sort of a crutch for her single status.
edit Other Students
edit Hisamitsu Noto

She later studies in America as she wants to become an astronaut in outer space, and because of this, she rejects Yūsaku's confession of his feelings. Which really sucks for Yusaku. What a loser!

edit Maya Kihara
Maya Kihara is in Ryūji's class who often hangs out with Nanako. She is a slut. She has a crush on Yūsaku, and she circuitously opposes the idea of Taiga and Yūsaku being a couple, (Although she wants Taiga and Ryūji to be together). She must be a stalker also.

The series has been proved to be highly popular with the lazy unmarried Japanese male and female crowds with over 3 million views the first night it was aired on TVTokyo. Rave reviews have come from many sites (if you count anime review sites, of course. There isn't any reviews anywhere else.) The anime has been commended for its moe and otaku pandering, if not for much else. As with any crazy animu from Japan, Toradora was aired on Adult Swim in the US, attracting 500 thousand views in the first night from college dropouts and lazy bums watching television at 3AM.
