Words from the Staff – Toradora 15th Anniversary

Tatsuya Nagai, the director of the Toradora anime adaptation, congratulated the staff and cast members on the 15th anniversary as

Congratulations on the 15th anniversary of Toradora!
The reason I’m still doing this job is that I was able to work on this project I can’t thank Mr. Takemiya enough for entrusting me with such important work when I was even more of a nobody than I am now. At the time, I must have been so anxious… I 
think I was always falling all over myself to figure out how to convey the charm of the characters during production. We were blessed with a great staff, and it was a really good experience to be able to keep working until the final episode! Thank you, Toradora!

Mari Okada who did the series composition and wrote scripts for multiple episodes expressed her appreciation for the series:

Congratulations on the 15th anniversary, Toradora! We were already in our thirties, but we were just as immature in a [teen way] as Taiga Ryuji and the others. Even now, in my mid-forties, I still sing “Pre-Parade” when I go to karaoke and mutter Minori’s lines when I eat French fries, and Toradora! Toradora! I’m going to keep on loving it!
