Toradora was one of the first anime titles to be licensed by NIS America. It is a romantic comedy based on the popular light novel series by Yuyuko Takemiya and Yasu that focuses on two social outcasts, Taiga and Ryuji, who help one another out to try starting up romantic relationships with their close friends.
