I was thinking of making the same topic so many times lol
Edit: You know what...eating can wait this topic is too good.
Toradora...my theory for why people are so obsessed about this is that people are drawn to either certain beautiful moments or extremely epic moments. They get so overwhelmed by those moments that they forget the majority of the show was rather lackluster and basic. Don't get me wrong, those certain moments were indeed amazing and i was in a bit of funk when it ended but that quickly subsided after a while. It's just when people say it's the greatest romance ever i kinda scratch my head confused. I have to come up with a name for people like this eventually but it's the same thing with Sunday Without God. Had "good" moments in the beginning...(well, i didn't think so, I found it quite rushed and forced) but I do get a chuckle however when people start to say "This show is all over the place" or "What is really the point now". I just hate when people are all over 1 scene and thinks that defines an anime. Anyway, just my opinion...TO EACH HIS OWN.

Why is everyone so obsessed with it? It is good but certainly not to the extent that EVERYONE recommends it.

So what exactly is it?

Well shit AK you dipshit, delete your own first post >.>

Toradora



Ill start with Toradora.

Clannad



I suppose that is a good point. This brings me to my second bane, Clannad, wtf.

Did it need 2 seasons to accomplish what it did? I don't think so.

I have fire retardant jelly, a flame shield, and a super soaker for your flames, lol!



I do not dislike Taiga. I see Toradora's elements in other animes that have tied things up at the end.

I think it's more the fact that the romance between the two main characters actually progresses, instead of dancing around in that eternal holding pattern you see in so many other shows. Little by little, ever so slowly these two get past all the hurdles and problems and other characters and they come together.

and you can finally be happy for them



Also that scene where Taiga goes blitzkrieg against Sumrie is fantastic

You can probably just mush the main story into 26 episodes if you cut out the other arcs, but then again business is business and Key is no different from Kyo ani or J.C. when it comes to that regard.

Stop milking railgun and focus on Index!

Clannad was whatever to me not really something that makes me confused at it's fans, i can see why they like it...not a big fan of Nagisa tho
2 seasons...meh i can see why it needed 2 but it did have drawn out episodes. 1 would have felt rushed.
How bout Rumbling Hearts? This has been bugging me but how do you feel about the MC's actions?

But I like Railgun so much more lol, I think them getting equal amounts of episodes is fine with me.

Is anyone watching Gifuu Dodou?

... no, and i'm kinda a ever so slightly railgun fan, but after dat movie i'm like half and half again.

also gifuu didn't make it out of the yes, no, maybe decision of each season.

Mainly, it's the fact that it's super-polarizing. Most people either love it and think it's a beautifully-written love story that isn't bogged down by the usual cliches of such things, or they hate Taiga for being a tsundere loli and wanted Ryuuji to end up with Minorin (which was clearly not going to happen). I lean more towards the former. I think the haters just encourage the likers to talk it up more than they otherwise would.
