Thanks to the rising interest in anime and streaming platforms like Netflix producing more and more projects, past favorite series are finally getting the attention they deserve. In some cases, this has even led to new seasons or movies being put into production many years after the show last released new episodes. A few instances of this include “Tiger & Bunny,” which released Season 1 in 2011 and now has a second season coming in 2022, and “World Trigger,” which premiered with Season 1 in 2014 and came out with Season 2 in early 2021, with Season 3 currently airing.
Now, Netflix has brought attention back to another well-loved anime called “Toradora!”, which originally aired in 2008. In 2020, Netflix added the old series to its continually expanding catalog of fantastic anime, streaming all 25 episodes of “Toradora!” Season 1. Thanks to this, many newer anime fans have started streaming the series, igniting a new conversation about a possible second season of the show to be produced by Netflix.
What is the release date for Toradora! Season 2?
Although the first season of “Toradora!” has gotten a lot of attention thanks to its appearance on Netflix, there is no official word on whether or not the show might be coming back. Because of the streaming platform’s new connection to the show, fans of “Toradora!” are hoping that Netflix might pick up the show for a second season, even after so many years with nothing new. The production company of the original first season, J.C.Staff, is still very successful with plenty of series in development, so it’s not too far-fetched to think that a Season 2 of “Toradora!” could already be on its way but not publicly announced yet. If this is the case, “Toradora!” Season 2 could very well premiere in mid-to-late 2022, or possibly in 2023.

What characters will be in Toradora! Season 2?
The story of “Toradora!” centers around the relationship between two enemies turned friends named Ryūji Takasu and Taiga Aisaka. Ryūji is a kind high school student who often gets mistaken as being mean and having an attitude due to his serious eyes, who has a longtime crush on his classmate Minori Kushieda. Meanwhile, Taiga is best friends with Minori, but she has a purposely abrasive personality that most people can’t stand. Because of Minori and Taiga’s friendship, Ryūji has to constantly hang out with both of them, but Taiga’s intensity is offset by the presence of Ryūji’s own best friend, a boy named Yusaku Kitamura, the picture-perfect vice president of their class who is super popular.
The main group of characters is soon filled out by another student named Ami Kawashima, a childhood friend of Yusaku’s whose beautiful exterior hides a bratty nature. Soon after she arrives at their school, she sets her eyes on Ryūji and constantly flirts with him, purposely making Taiga mad. “Toradora!” also has a bunch of supporting characters who would possibly make an appearance in Season 2, like classmates Kōji, Hisamitsu, Maya, and Sumire, among others.

What will Toradora! Season 2 be about?
“Toradora!” tells the story of Ryūji and Taiga, two people who begin at odds with each other, but over time develop deep feelings for one another. The couple has a bickering nature, and after they first meet, they make a deal to help the other get together with their friends. Of course, as these stories go, Ryūji and Taiga end up falling for each other instead.
If “Toradora!” were to come back for another season, the show could easily jump right back in and move forward with Ryūji and Taiga in their final years of high school, or fans could see it jump forward to university and beyond. Along with that, it’s possible that the anime could focus on a new couple altogether, possibly one in the surrounding cast or new characters introduced just for the new episodes. But considering how much people love Ryūji and Taiga as a couple, fans probably hope that a hypothetical Season 2 of “Toradora!” continues to focus on the same main characters.
Toradora Season 2 Episode 1: Plot Details
J. C. Staff’s popular rom-com anime centers around a unique duo. Ryuuji Takasu, a kind, and gentle high schooler, often gets labeled as a delinquent due to his intimidating face. On the other hand, Taiga Aisaka, a cute and fragile looking typical anime girl, also has a contrasting personality. Unlike her looks, Taiga has a fiery and snappy personality and is known as the “Palmtop Tiger,” the most dangerous animal in the school. The story gets interesting as the two of them cross paths.
Taiga has a crush on Ryuuji’s best friend and the school’s vice-president, Yuusake Kitamura. Whereas, we found out that Ryuuji has a crush on Taiga’s best friend, Minori Kushieda. In a twisted fate, both of them help each other out to get their respective crushes. However, after a series of events and hardships, they find love in each other.
Well, over the years, a lot of viewers have complained that they did not like the first season’s ending. On the other hand, many light novel readers expressed that the LN had a much better finale than the anime. Hence, it’s likely that Toradora Season 2 might begin after the LN’s ending. However, it is also possible that the sequel might feature the after story of Ryuuji and Taiga. In fact, we may get to see the future life of the couple.
Has The Toradora Manga Ended?
Almost all Toradora projects have ended back, including the light novel that concluded in March 2009 and its anime adaptation that last aired in 2009. However, only one venture of the franchise is still running, which is the manga. The Toradora manga began serialization back in 2008 and already has a total of nine volumes. Light novel author and mangaka Yuyuko Takemiya launched the most recent one, Volume 9, in June 2019. Since he releases the manga volumes every one or two years, Volume 10 might arrive sometime in 2021.
Readers have reported that the manga has almost caught up with the light novel series. Hence, the story of the upcoming volume might go past the original ending and that of the anime adaptation. If the author continues a new story with future volumes of the manga, J. C. Staff, Netflix, or any other company that produces Toradora Season 2 will have enough source material for new episodes. Moreover, the producer would also have new content to promote. This article will be updated with relevant information once the tenth volume arrives.
