I think all of you still remember Toradora. Best 2008 drama ever. Here’s some techno to liven it up a bit again.

Thanks Ume!

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.

So if sitting here in a boring room waiting for your favorite show to finally finish downloading isn’t bad enough, you get showered left right and center by sentence after sentence of what a paranoid you would consider potential spoilers, and part of you would start to think about the philosophical question of whether or not you will live to finally be able to watch Toradora 25. Have you had that experience? Because that’s what me and Kagamin are both feeling right now. To top things off, the ISP doesn’t seem to give a damn and provides us with their regular friendly service: disconnections every 5 minutes and a choked pipe, as well as a prerecorded telephone support welcome message saying “your call is important to us. Please hold”. Oh the oxymorons and idiosyncracies of modern corporations.

All of us have been waiting so long for this day to watch it together, yet we’re being served cruelly by the very thing that makes us realize we still have a life to live. We wait, and wait and wait, trying to preoccupy ourselves with other things and yet the day never seems to come. I can tell you when you really want to watch an episode of something, waiting for it is akin to catholic zealots awaiting the second coming of Jesus. Its that serious.

It also seems Haruhi’s getting impatient, and the night seems darker than ever before.

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.

It appears ASCII Media Works and Nintendo DS are coming up with something that will be recieved very well in the anime fan world in the next few days. A game called Dengeki Gakuen: Cross of Venus is an action/RPG game for the DS that will feature all the stars from light novels published by under the Dengeki Bunko label. So what’s so special about them? Well, for those of you who don’t know, the light novels include some famous names like: Shakugan no Shana, To Aru Majutsu no Index, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and Toradora. Feeling the excitement now?

The game’s going to be released on March 19th, which is like, just days away. Who’s getting it? (Gameplay pics after the jump)

… 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!

Found some great vids today played by someone callim himself Geno-killer. He plays 2 good songs from Toradora with the precision and style of a professional bass player. The internet is such a pot of gold, I wonder what else there is to be found…

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.
