Frankly, I’m not that much a fan of Rie Kugumiya, or rather the characters she voiced acted as. Sure, her voice acting’s great and the characters are hilarious, but really, I have to admit that Shana, Nagi, Louise were more of an alright sort of character to me. Taiga is an exception and seriously, of all the Rie’s Loli-Tsundere roles, she’s the most unique, and really stands out the most.
Her little tantrums, the little “shocked look”, the blushing — her actions and face expressions were really well done — both adorable and hilarious. Indeed, it is also because of the way the story is being developed that helps to prevent Taiga from ending up as the generic tsundere role. As many as been saying, the exploration into the relationship (with Ryuuji) is more than just a mere romance-progress sort of stuff. And that alone makes it more unique, more in-depth and most importantly, more engaging than the usual simple, typical situations characters such as Shana is in.
But of course, ultimately, my favourite character in ToraDora! is still the ever-happy-go-lucky Minorin.
