竜児へ

竜児、私ね… ずっとずっと自分なんかが
誰かに愛されるはずがないって思ってた。
でもそれは逃げてただけなのかも知れない。
自信がもてないのを親のせいに… 周りのせいにして…
でも、竜児は私をそのまま愛してくれた…。
[ だからこそ、私はもう逃げない。私は変わる、全てを受け入れて。]
自分に誇りをもって…
竜児を愛したいから。
― 逢坂 大河.

[Edit] There! I inserted what Taiga said that wasn't in the pictured letter. No mistakes, I hope?

My best effort at translating: "I always always thought to myself, somehow [something about loving someone, followed by a bunch of hiragana which I can't make sense of. Skip the next two lines for the same reason... I can only tell you, based on the kanji, that it's something about running, knowing, self-confidence and people around her T_T]. However, Ryuuji came to love me as I am [or "just like this"?]. Thus, I will no longer run away. I will change and accept everything. Maintaining my pride... since I [want to?] love Ryuuji."

Now, a decent translation please! Still waiting... come on, now!

it sounded like she was reading it out loud when she was leaving. I thought it was one of those scenes where someone reads a letter and it is the person who wrote it's voice. i can't understand spoken japanese very well.

if it was manufactured for whatever reasons it didn't seem very well pulled off.


maybe I should hold off my judgment until the subs come out though.

i rated the episode 8/10


oops someone pointed out the "reading aloud" thing before I finished posting

Toradora! ~After Story~, anyone? . At least they broached the topic of marriage, something which most high school romances daren't even hint at.

Am still eagerly awaiting the English subs, but I've been too impatient to see what happened, so I've just watched the RAW.

I'm glad they did away with the OP to buy more time - it was important to properly conclude this episode. And it's nice to have a different ED. Now from what I can see, I'm even more eagerly waiting for one of the sub groups to finish.

I can say Toradora ranks among my top 5 for sure.

Oh God Peanutbutter, it's like you read my mind when you started talking how they acted like nothing happened over the past year. It's one of the first things I thought of after watching the episode. So often in shows about personal growth they forget that when doing an epilogue that takes place long after the story, having the characters remain the same. It also would make it difficult for even people that are very compatible to relate to each other at first as their experiences over that entire time were so different, making it hard to relate to one another: Different friends, different interests, different classes and so on.

O~SHI~MA~I~!!

Finally finally Tiger and Dragon become a legend...

Well I do remember someone said there were no enough kisses. Here you go...First one was a quick and gental trial, then again and again, longer and longer...But nothing more happened(if you guys read the 10th book, or something "happened" in your mind).

Anyway, from that night Taiga learned to face her own weakness, and left Ryuuji to fight alone. The importance of this action was that we got a very funny photo(bet someone's going to use that face as a avatar), and a new suit on Taiga(black seifuku looks out of fashion, but classical).

So...the end is a little plain, but no harmness to the whole series. This is still an excellent one I have ever watched in 2009. The reason is simple: I really miss it, and miss them.

omg altho its only the raw I saw, I feel alot sadder that its come to an end than I did with Clannad and that really hit home.
Altho Clannad had its moments, don't know why but Toradora has had the bigger impact on me overall.

Its a brilliant end to a brilliant series, this def goes into my top 5 anime list.

can't wait for subs...but surprisely I managed to get the gists of most parts, I guess after watching enough anime you pick up words and just put 2 and 2 together

.....I..I..I..I..INKO-CHAN!!!

p.s lol at Ya-chan, shes getting a telling off from her father yet goes for a bickie! FEAR THE POWER OF THE BICKIE!

Haha, man, I really liked that Toradora! AS video Peanutbutter003. Although you shouldn't have put Ryuji in the naming sequence, it was great, haha.

What is a Bickie????? ????? Osenbei?

How dramatic would depend on each person but I think that's the reason behind them changing it.

Man, so impatient there. There may be some mistakes with that as the person from the blog said "というわけで誤記のような気がします。さすがドジタイガーw". That little bit at the end is funny. ("sasuga doji Taiga") But so yeah, it's basically what's she was saying like some of you said. But on to translations...

To Ryuji

Ryuji, I... always, always thought that there was no way someone like me would be loved by someone.
But that might have just been me running away.
I made it my parents fault that I couldn’t believe in myself …everyone around me’s fault…
But, Ryuji, you loved me just as I was…
[That’s why I won’t run away anymore. I’ll change. I’ll take everything in.]
I’ll be proud of myself…
Because I want to love you Ryuji.
- Aisaka Taiga.

Whoa, that was your video?? I've watched that one before but I didn't know you were the creator. I'm impressed ^^

Also, did anyone notice the BGM when Ryuuji returns to school and Yuri-chan announces that Taiga has left? Doesn't it remind you of the JR station tunes in Tokyo?

I didn't make that video. I just found it on nicovideo and simply reupload it on Youtube, that's all.

There will be no second season. Novel series ended this spring and anime covered all of them. Sure they skipped quite some stuff, but not enough to make a full second season. Maybe an OVA or something like that.

An OVA will be enough to make me happy, as long as it's about Ryuuji and Taiga - or at least covers their story in passing - and set after their reunion. Basically, anything to reassure us that they actually are together again (as opposed to their "reunion" being just a one-time thing)... even if it's just one character remarking to another that Ryuuji and Taiga are formally engaged or something of that sort.
