ANN Review: Toradora! (Vol. 01)

ANN Review: Toradora (Vol. 01)

AnimeNewsNetwork has posted another of my reviews, this time for the first volume of Toradora!. It’s recently been released by Seven Seas.

Overall I thought the book was fun, though also a little dull. This was because it felt predictable and rather cliche as far as otaku-targeted material goes. I don’t tend to read works like this so it was an interesting change of pace; plus I felt like on a site like ANN of all places, someone who has never seen an episode of the anime series (and very likely never will) was a fairly worthwhile angle. I’ve got friends who rave about the series though so I’m curious to see if volume two offers up a little more entertaining substance. A notably plus was I really liked Seven Seas work on it. It had a very complimenting adaptation which is something that stands out more often than not to me from the publisher.

    I never watched the ANime I got the basic plot outline from Wikipedia and T.V. Tropes (my go to sources for shows I dont or wont watch or cant watch legally.)And Taiga is my faviourte charcter to see her go from wooden sword wielding tough girl to complete klutz is really cute.

    She's also the first Tsundere charcter I ever really liked. But it's agood sereis so far and I cant wait for volume two even though I know how the thing ends I mean the title is a dead give away.
