Nothing will EVER replace Nisekoi. But I think Toradora is good, I'm watching it right now and I have already finished Oreshura. So, My best bet is I will watch Golden Time or Clannad, or any other. I don't really care as I have more than 200 anime that I wanna watch right now. Sword Art Online is also amazing!

i wish there was a job to watch anime on April 08, 2019:
