So, since this Lunar year is the Year of the Tiger, it's Toradoshi this year?

In any case, Happy New Year!

I've seen the Haruhi one tons before too, and I think of it more as a Christmas pic than a New Years one, but eh.

Happy New Years everyone, and here's to a great Year of Kisa - er, Year of the tiger. Razz

LOL. Well, they're both tiger-related. And there are multiple characters in anime with the name Taiga. Two that immediately spring to mind are the teacher from Fate/Stay Night and the female lead of Toradora. I assume that you meant Taiga from Toradora given her popularity, but you weren't exactly specific.

A tiger by any other name would...

Haven't seen Toradora just yet so I didn't think of her. xD;

And I mainly meant because that's a Kisa pic used in the article we're talking about here, at the top. Razz

Maybe she finally got the modification she wanted?

Where can I see the full Mahoro greeting. Gainax's site has a Hanamaru Youchien greeting.

LOL. If you're going to complain about females in anime not having the proper breast size, you're likely to be complaining pretty much forever. Consistency is not always a high priority it seems, and there are plenty of artists who love to play around with that - particularly if it means an increase in size.

Now, it's perfectly understandable that you'd want a character's proportions to be correct and consistent, but it rarely seems to work out that way.

Of course, then there are the character designs which are "supposed" to have breast sizes that make no sense, but that's an entirely different matter.

Although I did see a bigger version of this early morning, I can't seem to find it.
