It features animation by Nippon Animation, as well as the vocal talents of Aya Hirano (“Haruhi Suzumiya,” “Lucy” in Fairy Tail), Fumiko Orikasa (“Rukia” in Bleach), Michiko Neya (“Riza Hawkeye” in Fullmetal Alchemist), and Yurika Ochiai (“Keiko” in Uta~Kata). It aired during Fall 2008 on TV Tokyo and was simulcast outside of Japan by Crunchyroll.

Ever have a crazy best friend? The kind who jumps out of windows, makes robot clones of herself, and (accidentally) punches teachers in the gut?
Torako does all these things and more. She’s a force of nature, and thanks to her, nothing at Kamizono Academy ever goes quite as planned. Looking for the right classroom turns into a comical case of breaking and entering. Sketching fellow students in art class turns into a racy photo shoot. No one can predict what Torako will do next, but wherever she and her friends go, laughter is sure to follow.
The complete 13-episode television series!
