365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 122/365 Taiga Aisaka

Day 122/365

Taiga Aisaka

From the anime Toradora!, Taiga Aisaka is a typical high school girl. The only thing different about her is her bitchy attitude towards others but that is because she is a very short girl and thinks she must act rough and tough. She is given the nickname "Palmtop Tiger" because of these traits. She comes from a well off family but they have issues (like most families do), so she lives on her own next door to Ryuji, a fellow classmate.

Why I like her: She's small, tiny and knows what she wants even if she isn't sure what it is that she wants yet. (kinda reminds me of myself in a way) Love or hate tsundere's, Taiga is one worth getting to know and watch her story unfold.

Why I hate her: Whiny and bitchy. It's a love hate relationship with these traits for me. It can be funny at times but overdone it gets annoying.

Overall: RAWR! This ED fits her the best in my opinion. It's really catchy too. Picture above done by mzd421.

  1. Even if I liked the other two girls better, and thought Minori was the better match for Ryuuji, Taiga was still a great character. For all the character archetypes that Toradora used (tsundere, childhood friend, etc) the show still made Taiga and everyone else into complex, well thought out characters. And I loved her showdown with Sumire, that was one of my favorite moments in anime, the way that arc built up and concluded.

    Outside of the first few episodes, I’d hesitate to call Taiga bitchy. She matures pretty quickly, at least in terms of holding in her temper and not lashing out at others too much.

    @ExecutiveOtaku The complex part of the characters is what made the show watchable for me. I didn’t love it as much as a lot of others did but I don’t have a lot of bad things to say about it either ^_^ That showdown was one amazing moment!

    @Shinmaru I dunno there was a lot of bitchy parts that just weren’t needed later on in the series imo some bitch yes. lots no 😛

    As the biggest fan ever of Rie Kugimiya, I must say that this is, in my opinion, her best voice acting. Taiga is just awesome in every way. Personally, I don’t consider Taiga to be tsundere. I had logic to back up my reasoning, but I can’t remember it. I wrote it in a post or a comment a long time ago, but I forget where that went.

    Either way. Rie Kugumiya = Awesome. Taiga Aisaka = Awesome
