Both are heartwarming stories about tsunderes (Ririchiyo is 'tsun-shun' apparently!) coming out of their shell and learning about portraying their emotions normally, though InuxBoku has more of a supernatural element to it while Toradora! is more school-life based.
Such as Ziggy said, both are similar heartwarming romance stories with the only difference whereas InuxBoku SS has supernatural elements and Toradora is school-life centered.
Mei Tachibana has had neither a friend nor a boyfriend in 16 years, and she doesn’t plan on ending that streak any time soon. The outcast learned years ago that social obligations only lead to pain, and has carefully guarded her heart to keep from getting hurt. However, the girl can’t stay withdrawn forever, especially after attracting the attention of the handsome Yamato, who finds her caustic personality interesting and strives to date her after she roundhouse kicks him down the stairs. But even the most earnest of romances can be crippled by jealousy and insecurity, and this pair has plenty of both. Can their feelings for each other overcome their own emotional weaknesses, or will this love perish before it even begins?
Both of these series will take you on an emotional roller coaster. I haven't quite finished Suki-tte Ii na yo (Say I love you) yet, but so far I've absolutely loved it. It's about a real girl with real insecurities, dealing with her first love.
Toradora! is also a coming-of-age high school romance, albeit with quite a bit more comedy and laughter. Tears of joy flowed more plentifully than tears of sadness, thankfully.
Both are about a tsundere girl and, despite the difference in the amount of episodes, are similiar in character development.
Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!
The main male character in TD has similar traits to Kodaka and is somehow a magnet to odd girls. I would recommend TD for the similarity of setting and character relationships.
both haganai and toradora are comedy animes focused around a guy who has been misunderstood becuase of his delinquent looks and a girl who is completly untouchable. both have a cast of charecters around them to support and misinterprete their every action. i personally enjoyed haganai more and it can be a much more lets say mature than toradora but if you liked one 90% chance you will like the other
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
While Toradora! has a romantic focus and Azumanga is focused just on slice-of-life comedy, both series have a similar style of comedy, based around the character's wild personalities. This is particularly evident in Toradora! with Minori, who often acts like a more energetic version of Osaka. They also use some of the similar "typical" highschool episodes, like the characters going to a beach house during summer break and a few episodes centered around the school pool. If you thought one series was funny, it's likely you'll enjoy the comedy in the other.
Asu and Kyo are two orphaned sisters; their mother passed away some time ago, while their father abandoned them due to gambling issues. Asu and Kyo now live in a rundown apartment complex. Asu, the younger sister, is responsible for all of the housework while Kyo is in charge of living expenses; and together, the two sisters work hard to live a comfortable and enjoyable life. Looking to one another for support, Asu and Kyo experience the hardships of daily living, but are still able to welcome each day with a smile.
The two share a lot in common, in the aspect of everyday people dealing with everyday problems in the best way they can. Ryuji has a lot in common with the sisters Kyo and Asu, though both dealt with their situation in different ways I think that both shows present a positive message on how to deal with untoward circumstances. As a further warning, you will probably not like Binbou Shimai if you simply enjoyed Toradora due to the comedy (and vice versa).
