To start I just have to say that Toradora!'s first opening song is one of my favorite openings of all time. The song, called Pre-Parade in English is actually sang by the seiyu for the three lead females in Toradora! (Aisaka Taiga, Kushieda Minori, and Kawashima Ami) and has this perfectly up-beat, bubbly sound and while light-hearted it also has a whimsical, almost romantic undertone. I honestly love it and it perfectly sets the tone for the series. On that same note, the ending (Vanilla Salt), second opening (Orange), and second ending (Love Jellyfish) songs all leave a bit to be desired and do not quite capture the soul of the series as well as Pre-Parade, though Vanilla Salt does come close.
