October 2008 New Anime: Toradora! (とらドラ!)

Genres: School Drama / Comedy / Romance?
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: School / Loli

Summary: Ryuji is a nice guy, but he has a very mean looking face. So everybody in school is afraid of him. One day, he accidentally discovered a secret of Taiga. She is the meanest girl in the school, who's also very small. That's why she has a nickname of "Palm Tiger". Now Ryuji is kind of stuck with her.

Rating (of 5) - first impression: 4 ~ Quite interesting

Recognized Voice Talent:Rei Kugimiya (釘宮理恵) as Tiaga Aisaka. With her distinct shouting voice, I immediately recognized she's the voice of Shana from Shakugan no Shana series, as well as Louise from Zero Tsukaima series.

Personal comments: It may look like another ordinary school drama/comedy, but I think it has a lot more potential than just a oridinary school drama. It somewhat felt like the openning episode of Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, in term of the unique beginning.
