Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?
Nodame Cantabile: Finale reminded me more of Toradora than the first seasons, especially the last few episode of Toradora. At the beginning, both main male characters (Ryuji from Toradora and Chiaki from N.C.) feel like slaves to the two main female characters (Taiga from Toradora and Nodame from N.C.) but as their relationship grows both of the male characters are afraid to admit their own feelings. The "accidently in love" plot comes out in both of these animes. They also have unexpected comedy that will make you fall on the floor laughing. And thats why I think if youlove one, you'll love the other.
