Toradora! Blu-ray vs. DVD


It’s only a few days left until the Toradora! Blu-ray box goes on sale.

To commemorate the release of the Blu-ray box, there was an early preview for lucky select fans on December 13, 2011.

Even on the big screen, the quality difference was noticeable right from the OP. To drive the point further, Impress AV Watch compared the quality of Toradora! SD against HD.







Considering Toradora! was made in Standard Definition, the team went to great efforts to upscale the original images. And it seems the effort has paid off.

Remember, the Toradora! Blu-ray box also contains an OVA made just for this release.

Toradora! OVA Confirmed


Maybe we’ll learn more about Ryuuji and Taiga’s after story with this one.


It was confirmed by the series composer of the 2008 hit anime Toradora! that the recently-announced BD-R release of Toradora! will feature an OVA.

Here’s a translated quote from Okada Mari, the producer in question:


There were several airings of many different productions today in an event held today at Tokushima City.

The series composer responsible for Toradora! in 2008 and the current series producer for Hourou Musuko (Wandering Son) was in attendance. In response to a comment during the event congratulating the release of Toradora! in Blu-Ray, she commented

“Thank you. There’ll be an OVA bundled with the Blu-Ray box, so please consider a purchase.


Toradora! was one of my most favorite anime productions and one of the several responsible for bringing me back into the anime world. So I’ll be waiting for this one with enthusiasm, though a Blu-Ray box of 24 episodes wouldn’t come cheap.
