Picture 1 in [Toradora is gold]

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.

This piece of gold is truly a reminder of how precious a treasure trove the Internet is. Enjoy.

Picture 1 in [The many forms of Minorin]

Minorin is very quickly becoming my favorite girl in Toradora. Such a bubbly girl is hard to find these days.
