Wedding dress Taiga figurine for Toradora 15th anniversary
Toradora! is a rom-com anime that has enjoyed sustained popularity since its release in 2008. The cute and dynamic dragon and tiger couple – Ryuji Takasu and Taiga Aisaka – have successfully stolen the hearts of fans worldwide.
The anime was based on a light novel by Yuyuko Takemiya, and it ran from 2006 to 2009. To celebrate the upcoming 15th anniversary of the light novel’s release, Chara-Ani, a Japanese anime merch company, will be selling a limited edition Taiga Aisaka wedding dress figurine.

Chara-Ani will be releasing a special 1/7 scale figurine of Taiga Aisaka, the female protagonist of Toradora!, in a flowy white wedding gown. To fans, this wedding dress figurine of Taiga symbolises the fulfilment of Taiga and Ryuji’s promise of marriage in the anime’s last episode.
The Taiga figurine will come with a dedicated stand and an extra face part. The extra face part will allow you to display Taiga Aisaka with a nonchalant expression, while the original face part depicts a shy and blushing look.
