Toradora is a popular rom-com anime that has been re-released on Netflix after years of its premiere. The Netflix release brought fans back to the drama in 2020, reigniting the demand for Toradora Season 2.
Toradora! is based on a light novel series by Yuyuko Takemiya. The series is based on 10 light novels. Apart from that, there’s a spinoff light novel series as well titled Toradora Spin-off! and a manga adaptation that is still continuing.
Toradora anime season 1 had 25 episodes and its original run was from October 2008 – March 2009. It has been more than a decade and fans are still waiting for another season.
Here’s everything we know about Toradora Season 2.
Will there be Toradora Season 2? Canceled or Renewed
Unfortunately, there is no official confirmation regarding Toradora Season 2. Even after 13 years of its release, J. C Staff has not confirmed or said anything about the show returning for another season.
However, the season is not canceled either, so that’s good news. But if you look at the time frame, fans are wondering if we will ever get another season.
As of today, that does not seem to be the case. Even though Toradora returned to Netflix after years, and has gained popularity again, I don’t see the series coming back for another season.
The renewal of the series depends upon a lot of parameters like the source material, sales, popularity, and other elements.

The anime is based on the Toradora Light Novel series which has a total of ten volumes with 62 chapters. The anime used all 10 volumes with a slightly different ending.
Therefore, if we look at the light novel series, there is no source material left for the anime to adapt in season 2. Also, it has been more than 11 years since the light novel ended, and anime was made for the promotion of the light novel.
Therefore, the chances of Toradora returning for another season are very low.

What is Toradora Season 2 Release Date
Although the first season of the anime gained a lot of popularity, there is no official release date for Toradora Season 2.
As of now, neither the network nor J.C. Staff has confirmed the release date or cancelation of the series. Furthermore, they have been quiet about any spinoff series, or movie adaptation.
The anime adaptation was made to promote the light novel and manga series. However, as the novel series has ended, the anime has no content to promote anymore. This decreases the chances for renewal.
i know its been forever but we need a toradora season 2

For fans, this might be sad news, but we cannot rule out the possibility of another season altogether. The light novel series has long ended and its been more than 12 years, so I don’t think the creators will bring the anime back for another season.
There is plenty of other anime series that are still awaiting renewal like Psychic Princess, Noblesse, and Blue Spring Ride.
Toradora Reviews and Ratings
The popularity of the anime is an important factor to determine its success of the anime and the possibility of renewal.
Toradora is a highly popular anime with an audience score of 8.10 and a popularity ranking of #20 on MyAnimeList. From these numbers, you can see how in demand the anime is.

The rom-com anime series is truly enjoyable with unique characters, who have great chemistry between them that is fun to watch.
On IMDB, Toradora has a rating of 8.0/10 with 15K reviews. It is a satisfying romance anime with a coming-of-age story which might seem stereotypical at first go, but you will be surprised how well and naturally the story develops.
Toradora Sales and Revenue
Sales and revenue are the most crucial factor that determines the renewal of the series. If we look at light novel sales, Toradora! had amazing sales of over 2,400,000 copies sold ranking #33 on the list of the highest-selling light novels.
Toradora even had a great number of Blu-ray sales. There was an average sale of 10,000 copies. There were a total sales of DVD/ Blu-ray of around 35,000 which is a pretty high number.
So, looking at the numbers, there were enough profits made from the source material.
What is the Story of Toradora
Toradora is the story of Taiga and Ryuji who are at odds with other, but later develop feelings for one another. Ryuji Takasu is trying so hard to look his best as he enters the second year of high school. He has a gentle personality, but he appears to be an intimidating delinquent.
Ryuji runs into Taiga who is known as “the school’s most dangerous animal of the highest risk level.” Taiga is always snapping at people and she instantly dislikes Ryuji. Both find out that they have a crush on their friends, and make arrangements to help each other by setting them up with their crushes.
Over the course of the series, Ryuji and Taiga become close to each other and fall in love.
If Toradora comes back for another season, fans can see the story of how Taiga and Ryujin move forward in their lives. It could be based on their final years of high school, or university life.
