Toradora is better than Golden Time, but Golden Time is worth giving a shot. After time spent with this individual they end up forming a special bond together while there outside lives begin to interfere with their relationship causing for many moments of hilarity and drama. -the love triangle is front and center in Golden Time, unlike in Sakurasou where it is recurring but often in the background But after 2 or so episodes I was unable to stop my self from watching Golden Time.
