Year of the Taiga

For a few years, since Chun created the custom Taiga Dollfie, I've been bugging her about dollnapping her ^^; But no more!

I've finally able to convince Chun (with a truckload of money, and lots and lots of begging and groveling, not a pretty sight I tells ya) to sell me her Taiga Dollfie! I'm soooooooooo happy! I've been eyeing her for a while, especially after watching and loving the anime.

It was no easy task attaining her actually... I've heard from a passing comment by Chun at a doll meet that she is creating another Taiga head. Then an idea popped in my head (no pun intended); "why don't I ask her to sell it to me." It took a lot of talking and conversations and many emails, but it was finally a deal :D With the truckload of money (plus one extra item I feel sad to let go...), Chun was also able to track me down a few materials for us to both have a Taiga! I have a smiling Taiga and Chun has a new one that hasn't been revealed yet,so I won't say what it is :P

Edit: Ooooh! Looks like Chun posted her new Taiga now!

Chun was also kind enough to let me pay in installments, but because I had a lot of overtime at work recently, I was able to pay her in full!

So here she is finally, my first dollfie musume! Complete with her school uniform! She's still posing awkwardly because of that MDD body. I'm still afraid of posing her too much, especially after the warnings Chun gave me :(

For now she's got her standard standing pose and leaning against the wall pose ^^;;;

I was eager to pose her with any Taiga/Toradora merchandise I can find around the house. I bought this Taiga fan a long time ago from eBay. She looks like a peacock in this picture XD

And of course, it wouldn't be my kind of post unless we see some 4komas! Just arriving and Taiga has already have to deal with this craziness ^^;;

I'm also using a new technique that I discovered while reading Ichiroh manga that my friend lent me :D Taiga definitely has to be in two frames!

You can always read more of The Melancholy of Saber Lily at the comic site ;)


This one is a great angle :D

And of course you can't call it "The Melancholy of Saber Lily" without Saber Lily herself, right?

This is true... Haruhi has taken down Dollfies bigger than Taiga ^^;

Yup, I photoshopped out that stand in the 4koma ^^;

This one really shows the size comparison between figmas and Taiga 0.o She's still huge!

Bonus dress! Chun threw this in the deal as well ^^
Will take more pictures soon! For now I have to find a spot for Taiga to reside in my room... Another difficult task! And unfortunately I'm not like Ryuuji at all ^^;;

For some reason my face turns out blurry when I take pictures of myself ^^;;
Thank you very much Chun for finally being able to own a Dollfie Dream. A Taiga nonetheless! Please take care of the girl I gave to you and enjoy my hard-earned money XD


  1. She looks great! I'm so glad you got her extra dress too.

  2. and you, take care of that fierce one or Mk II will kick your butt! :P

  3. @lovelyduckie: She does indeed ^o^ Yah, thanks to Chun to throw that in :D

    @chun: Hehe I will! Thank you again!

  4. Truckload of money? You should have just run Chun over with a normal truck.

  5. @gameranimecomplex: Ooooh that's mean ^^; I prefer to see her cringe as I play with Taiga in an ecchi way XD

  6. Lol at "truck load" XDD You got her?! I had no idea, that's so awesome! Taiga was the first one that made me want to get a MDD (probably just a smaller, more anime version of myself)

    And... Chun MADE her head? (or is it just modded?) I never new that... I like the new one she has too! You lucky duck, bring her to the meet!

  7. @reaperofleaves: Chun bought the head and did the faceup ^_^

  8. My, my, my... I was digging through some of my old posts for pictures to go with my latest blog post, and I saw this comment of yours:

    "Heh well if you remember my room... then you'll know why I can never get a Dollfie XD "

    And now I see this. XD I'd never say never anymore lol! But hey congrats on getting a custom MDD there! Now we shall see whether you too will slowly shift more and more for the bigger toys ^^; Do share out your experience on handling this not-so-palmtop tiger~

    P.S. Even though I first saw this post on 31st March the post itself actually dates it 1st April... Ah well who cares lol

  9. congrats!! yay for new dollies^^

  10. @Q: Wow, that's quite the research! Or accidental find ^^;

    Well... You seem to have found this on March 31st, but I did change the post to April 1 just before you posted :P BUT there is some truth in this April Fool's joke, so your comment is not too far off from the truth ;)

    @Bluestarbaby: Thanks for keeping it a secret XD

  11. So much envy... TAIGAAAAAA ;A;

  12. Haruhi never seems to get her way anymore recently.

  13. @Yi: Tis unfortunate, but if I get around to it, she'll find a way ;)
