To tell you the truth, I got this figure because of the cat. Wanting to buy this figure was also the reason I bought all the other figures that I got last week. One item in the shopping cart just lead to the next and before I knew it I had ordered six figures. That just goes to show how persuasive a cat can be…
Before getting this figure, I didn’t know anything about Tora Dora, which is the manga that Taiga Aisaka is from. I read the first volume a few days ago though, and it has some potential. Will be looking forward to the anime version that will be airing this fall.
Taiga has a lot of hair. I think more PVC went into making her hair than to make the rest of the figure, but I’m not complaining, it looks nice.
Taiga also has a cast-off (removeable clothing) feature that I was not aware of until I got her.
Here’s a close up of the cat.
Misa was also drawn by the cuteness of Taiga’s cat.
I thought this was a pretty simple figure, but the cat and Taiga’s facial expression made the buy worth it. The figure came with a base that allows Taiga to sit on it, although her left leg doesn’t really fit in properly.
Since I really like the cat and the figure isn’t too fancy, I thought in front of my monitor would be the perfect place for it. It’s nice to look at, but not so nice that it’s distracting (I hope that makes sense).
