Post Reply Toradora! Or Golden Time?
Posted 7/7/14 , edited 7/7/14
I absolutely loved Toradora, but Golden Time was.... kind of "meh" to me personally.

Again, that's simply personal opinion. I just didn't really like the characters in Golden Time. I also despised the ending. Plus there are certain morals (or themes I guess) that I just didn't agree with. I did like the college setting though, but that's about it lol

So for me, i'll go with Toradora

I'm probably in the minority, but I liked Golden Time more. I liked the expandanded cast more and I believe the show worked really well as an ensemble comedy. I favored the college setting and having older characters opened up more possibilities too. Plus I wasn't the biggest fan of the final pairing of Toradora, and could see it coming from a mile away, so GT had more suspense for me near the end. Golden time was more schlocky in the drama dept, but it that really helped it work as a serial. It was always torture waiting to tune into "Feelz Thursday" for my next dose, probably the most fun I've had waiting for a weekly show that I've ever had. In one way I was always sorta frustrated with Ryuji for being a typically dense MC, but at least Banri had a built in excuse since he did suffer some brain damage.

I loved Toradora too, but as far as high school series go I'd still have to give the edge to Kimi ni Todoke. Golden Time probably worked better for me because it was just a bit crazier and just a bit more mature in its settings and characters.

Clearly Ryūji and Kōko should hook up.

I liked Toradora! a lot more.

I dropped Golden Time within the episode 13-14 range, so I can't really give you an opinion on the entire show as a whole.

I really enjoyed both, but then I am a relative newbie to anime. Both ended on high notes, but a part of the ending to Golden Time left me going: Huh? What? Anyways this is a Baskin Robbins world: They had 31 flavors because not everybody likes vanilla.

I loved Toradora. It's one of those romantic animes where the relationship actually progressed (unlike Kimi No Todoke where you get 36 episodes and they barely hold hands).

But, I might have to shade toward Golden Time. Even though I thought the ending had a ???? moment, I still really enjoyed the show over all. Of course it could be my personal preference because I like my girlfriends to have just a touch of crazy like Koko.

That's a pretty hard choice for me. I go way back with Toradora; it has always been one of my favorite romance anime series. But don't get me wrong I really enjoyed Golden Time. I'd have to say that I like the both of them equally.

Toradora.

I loved both the Toradora cast and Golden Time cast (minus Banri), so I'll give GT some points for that.
But not fond of how downhill GT it went after the first half, the drama felt very forced for me, and the ending highly disappointed me.

Kinda dropped GT around ep 14. Idk, Toradora was easier to watch.
