Favorite Anime So Far

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 2 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Favorite Anime So Far!

This is a really, really tough one. I always have a difficult time picking favorites because there are different things that I like about each show or genre that really aren’t comparable to each other.

I suppose if I have to pick just one for the sake of this post, I’ll go with Toradora.

I absolutely love slice of life style anime so this one was not hard at all for me to get into once I started watching it.

This anime had so much character development and so much emotion running from some of the characters that made it easy to connect with them and to grow to love or hate them . There is a good amount of humor in it as well which was great. The anime balanced the humor well with everything else that went on throughout the show.

I really enjoyed most of the characters as well. They all had their own personalities that were all completely different but went together well with the personalities of their friends. It was also nice to see an anime in which characters started out as enemies so to speak that were able to become closer as the anime progressed.

I’d say that this anime also produced 2 of my favorite anime characters of all time.

I really grew to love Aisaka Taiga because she actually reminds me a bit of myself with her ‘tsundere’ attitude. I remember when I was younger being comparable to a tsundere because I didn’t know how to express my emotions well or how to take compliments. Because of this, I was easily able to relate to Taiga and to sympathize with her as well.

My other favorite character would be Kushieda Minori. I absolutely love her perky personality as well as her love and dedication to her best friend, Taiga. She would and does do anything for Taiga.

I love her personality because I wish I was as perky and motivated as her. In all honesty, I’m kind of lazy! But I can absolutely relate to her in the way she would do anything for Taiga. I would do anything for my best friend as well!

The story and art for this anime are fantastic as well. I feel that the story was very well done  and not rushed at all like a lot of other shows out there. I feel like it was given an appropriate amount of time to come to completion.

I do feel like the end of it could have been expanded on a bit more or that they could have shown a bit more in the ending credits or in a special epilogue episode or something. That also leaves a lot for the imagination though, I suppose.

The last thing about this anime that I’d like to talk about is one of my all time favorite anime songs came from Toradora! It’s a Christmas song but I love it so much that it’s actually my ringtone all year round. (It also gives me a good excuse to watch it every winter!)

What is your all time favorite anime? Let me know here or on Facebook! Thanks for reading!

Waifu Wednesday – Aisaka Taiga

I used to absolutely hate the tsundere type. Every time I watched an anime with a girl that was tsundere they were always a side character (Yes, I know there are plenty with Tsun MC’s but I hadn’t seen them at that point). Being a side character, you don’t get to see that other sweet side of them. When I watched Toradora my opinion of the tsundere type changed completely.

Taiga Aisaka, also known as the palmtop tiger, is short and full of rage if the wrong thing is said to her. Her fuse is extremely short. I noticed a lot of similarities between Taiga and myself and I think that is part of what made me grow to like her so much. I think that’s another reason I find her to be such a fun and interesting character. However, she is also super sweet and loving to the people closest to her.

Toradora is a fantastic slice of life anime about friendship and love. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it. It is both dubbed and subbed and the dubbed version was done extremely well in my opinion.
