She gets too much credit for Toradora. The novel was already great to begin with, yet people act as if she created that Torardora.

I agree that the Hourou Musuoko adaptation was great - but having read the manga wire to wire (so far) I can tell you, all she did was remain very faithful to the manga. In took artfulness to distill the essence of a long manga into 12 eps, and full credit - but the tone, and the drama, and the power - that's all the mangaka.
Another work that was great to begin with as well.

The only work I really liked by her that wasn't an adaptation was True Tears, the rest not so much.
