Toradora ep. 1

The first episode of Toradora aired this week, and I have to say it was pretty good. The plot revolves around a high school student named Ryuji, who just happens to have a really scary face. Because Ryuji’s face is so scary-looking, everyone’s intimidated by him, and these two guys even offer him their wallets for bumping into him (I wish random people gave me their wallets). Of course, Ryuji’s actually a pretty nice guy and they show this in the anime when he takes the wallets he got to the lost and found.

So one day Ryuji goes through one of those “fateful encounters” that seem ever so common in anime and bumps into Taiga, the most fearsome girl in school. Of course, seeing as this is anime, Taiga has to be a little runt or else it just wouldn’t be funny, but she sure can pack a punch o.o

Anyways, some stuff happens and Ryuji accidently finds out that Taiga has a crush on his best friend and that leads to an assassination attempt (killer loli’s seem to be getting more common) on him by Taiga. I won’t go through the details, but after the failed attack, Taiga blackmails Ryuji by threatening to tell everyone who his crush is (couldn’t he just have threatened her back to tell everyone who her crush is?) and Ryuji ends up being Taiga’s slave.

The episode ends with Ryuji cooking and cleaning (I loved how they censored the sink XD) in Taiga’s apartment.

So Toradora looks like one of those romance-comedies with a love-hate relationship that ends with the two main characters hooking up. It’s pretty predictable, but hey, you don’t mess with a good thing. Definitely worth a look if you like anime such as School Rumble or Zero no Tsukaima (without magic).

Oh, and that cat/tiger is so cool ^.^
