Since a large part of the anime audience still takes part in school life or is visiting college, it is only natural to choose a setting the audience can identify with, be it elementary, middle, or high school.
For the older viewers a college setting with more mature real-life problems is appropriate.
Taiga had moved out to live on her own due to family issues and is inept at doing household chores.
After discovering the state of her apartment Ryuuji, who has a real talent for domestic chores, decides to do all of her house work.
And since Ryuuji spends a lot of time with Taiga, he opens up to her world and to a side of her that most people do not see.The two also attempt to help each other in order to improve their relationship with their respective crushes — Taiga has a crush on Ryuuji's best friend, Yuusaku, and Ryuuji has a crush on Taiga's best friend, Minori.However, fellow students start to become curious about their strange relationship together and rumours begin to spread about them...Although it might make Toradora seem like a serious drama by comparison, the two series complement each other.This description applies to the School Rumble sequels as well.Note that novel means book with words in paper, so no comics and no "visual novels", which should go under manga and dating-sim - visual Novel/erotic game respectively.Note that it can be applied to novels as we know them but also the typical light novels for teens and young adults, which are common in Japan and aside from being short include a number of illustrations.Thus he does not see his chances of getting a girlfriend improving any time soon, and does not have many close friends either.After being greeted by his hungover mother in the morning, Ryuuji goes to school and finds out that he is in the same class as his best friend Kitamura Yuusaku.In the strict sense the Coming of age describes a young person`s transition from adolescence to adulthood.In anime the term is used in a more general sense where the protagonists have to face a challenge, make an important decision in their life, take on responsibility, or learn a lesson, and by overcoming these obstacles they reach a higher level of maturity.
