Things that Make You Go Aww!

Awwwww!

Now, this is more like it! I'm not particularly a Toradora! fan, but this figure of Taiga Aisaka-- who, as a standard tsunderekko, is even a kind of character I rarely like –is beautiful. It's actually had its unpainted version out on the 'net for a while, but this is the first time I've seen the fully-painted version.

It's detailed, her facial expression is subtle but attractive, nicely painted, and a bit showy without being super pervy either. And I love her little floaty innertube. Hee! It just feels so nice and summery. I guess that's kind of my theme today?

Anyway, the figure is coming from Kotobukiya and if I'm reading this right, preorders start in July through Dengeki Daioh magazine and the figure will be shipped out in October-- I'm not sure if you can get it outside of Dengeki Daioh or not. That said, I'm betting we'll see a handful in dealer rooms after their release.

What do you think? Do you want one?

Come to think of it.... I think Toradora is the first series I can think of in a long time that actually has TWO tsundere characters... (well, 3 if you count the student council president but I don't think she quite qualifies).

Heero: How about Clannad? Fuuko and then that one of the twins, they're both kind of light tsundere.

While we're on the topic on Tsundere, I won't hold back in talking about Alice from Pandora Hearts and how awesome she is. ♥

Fuuko is NOT a tsundere...she's just.... a mentally handicapped person.

Ami figure now?

Heero: in the sense that she's attracted to the male lead but hides it behind mild hostility, I'd say she's debatably semi-tsundere.
