With the worldwide spread of the Anime craze and the ever-growing fan following population – even some older shows are picking up traction years after their initial release. One such show is Toradora, and the new larger fan base has become far more demanding of a second season than was expected after the show was first released in 2008. Based on a Japanese novel sequence, the first season spanned across 25 episodes and had an enthusiastic response, which was unfortunately limited only to Japan.
An upcoming season 2 for the show was briefly mentioned, and the rumors would reappear now and then, until recently when new viewers worldwide began to watch and enjoy the show greatly. The virality of the show and insistent demands on social media for a new season may have pushed the show developers in the direction of writing and releasing a new season. Netflix added the show onto its ever-expansive list in 2020, and ever since, the popularity of the show has skyrocketed. It is enjoyed by teens and adults alike based on high school drama, making it an even better choice to consider a reboot of.
Toradora Season 2: Release Date
A couple of years after the first release, a surprise OVA episode was released at the end of 2011, which stirred up a lot of excitement and anticipation of a new season. However, that hope never materialized, and viewers are still waiting. Now that the demand for the next season and viewership has increased, there is a high chance that production and writing will begin shortly. Especially since the OTT giant, Netflix decided to air the first season. It is also highly possible that the original producers at J.C. Staff may take up this project and earn an even larger success than the last time around.
Toradora Season 2: Cast
Without a show being confirmed, it is hard to determine the cast, but based on the previous season – some characters cannot be done without. Whether or not this includes the voice actors, we will have to wait and see in the cast list, but the characters on screen will certainly be known. This list will surely include Ryuji Takasu, Taiga Aisaka, MinoriKushieda, Yusaku Kitamura, Inko, Maya Kihara, Nanako Kashii, and Ami Kawashima.
Toradora Season 2: Possible Plot
The anime’s first season already covered the major events in the novel series that it is based on, so anything after this will have to be written exclusively for this purpose, which may cause a greater delay in the show’s release. However, this also means that fan theory will be considered, and like many other shows, woven into the fabric of the new season.
For instance, in the upcoming season, there might be a better ending to the lives of Taiga and Ryuji, as they are often hoped by fans to have fallen in love and ended up together. The happy ending they deserve with each other and a family might make the whole show a whole lot more wholesome for the audience to enjoy since they were left hanging at the end of last season.
If this is the first you hear of this, go right now to turn on your Netflix kickback and enjoy the show. But, on the other hand, if this show is something you watched in your childhood – it is time for some well-fashioned nostalgia while we all wait for the newest season to come out. The official confirmation is expected to come out soon, but until then, let us enjoy the masterpiece that we have already gotten (years and years ago, but still).
