TL;DR: Toradora! Wallpaper threadI just finished watching this one after many people recommended it for years... It casually popped in my Netflix and recognized the name. I literally binged it in like a day and a half... it was just so good and moving from start to finish.I was a fool for postponing it. Not really a fan of the "romance" genre (in anime nor literature), but this one hit so god damn fucking hard...And by the end I was like so invested on every single character's future and happiness. It kinda makes me feel a bit embarrased to be completely honest...So yeah... I'll be listening to the 10 hour Lost My Pieces track on YouTube.
Toradora is my absolute favorite. First anime I watched and it was good tier. I cried at the end and I ain't even ashamed of it.
Back in highschool this was my go to weeb Pape. I had such trouble finding it again, though so if it's shit quality I'm sorry m8. I just want to feel those feels again.
>>2177072>>2177073literally in the title dude, Toradora!
>>2176574This was my wallpaper in college.Good times.
>>2175649My favorite anime of all time. Glad there's a new wave of people experiencing it for the first time thanks to netflix
>>2178844wasn’t ready for this amount of feels anon...
>>2176575its a litte different, i believe yours was the base for this.
men wdym toradora is one of the worst animes in the world i mean is the big example of a toxic relationship
>>2181809I hope this is bait, because if you think that then you didn't get a single thing about the series. The whole story is dedicated to the theme of growing up into someone, about being a shitheaded egocentric teenager and the role of learning about being yourself through the bonds you create with significant others. That's why the characters and their interactions (even if they're really over the top) are the center of attention, not the plot or the romantic inclinations per se. It's quite a transversal picture about adolescence and its many avatars, condensed in an intense and melodramatic school year... you know, like teenage kids do. It's about being a child, and learning to love and behave towards others as an adult.It's explicitly written for you not to see teenage animated kids as role models and wish their lives... That would be like watching Dragon Ball and taking advice on how to parent from Goku. It's written so you can reflect on who you are, who you pretend to be, and why do you stand like that.This kind of comments remind me of the people who say that La La Land is about being in love in modern Hollywood, or that Blade Runner is about chasing robots.
>>2182164He is not egocentric. No more than the average human. I would actually argue that everyone is egocentric, with potentially few exceptions.Anyway, the problem with the show is again its portrayal of males being abused. It has a female character (who I find rather intolerable) abusing a guy, and that is suppose to be funny. This is a huge problem in anime, the portrayal of men (or boys) being abused as a source of comedy. It's the reason I stopped watching Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi (seeing Sasshi abused was not amusing to me in the least) and the same thing happened with Toradora. Ryuji was not some bad dude to begin with.I don't know what it is with Japanese culture, whether Japanese men are masochistic or what. But they love portraying males being abused, physically and verbally. It's an instant turn off for me. I'm not into that.No more than I would be into a show where a girl or women being abused is suppose to be funny or deserved. Tommy Wiseau finds it funny, I don't.
>netflixDisgusting>>2182182Why are you being such a fag. Its not Japanese culture its just traditional. Its slap stick comedy and in more traditional societies its not acceptable to beat up a woman as a man. Its because men can take it. Wilma flinstone use to beat her husband all the time. This is something dating back in animation/cartoons for ever. You kind of just sound like a no fun allowed vagina blasted sjw.
I hope someone has a non orange version of thisPreferably green or red or white
>>2181809you're most likely the kind of dude who's just a delight to be around at parties and social gatherings... lol
Toradora was one of the last animu I really enjoyed.
>>2181809not exactly toxic just immature and short tempered.
>>2175649check out the psp visual novel, it has an alternate story where sometime after i think the christmas celebration Ryuuji gets amnesia. He doesn't necessarily have to end up with Taiga in the end of the vn either
>>2175649op are you me, literally the same situation as me the last 24 hoursthank you all for these great papes
>>2181809i agree shit anime, however i watched it a decade ago and don't recall much of it
>>2175649this anime sucks, so fucking cringe, go watch some good anime please, you're loosing it.
>>2175649Posting best girl.>>2188844>He doesn't necessarily have to end up with Taiga in the end of the vn eitherWish that was the case in the anime. If Ryu had ended up with either of the two other girls it would have been a fantastic anime about friendship and choosing your family; Instead it was a little cliché.
