Date A Live - Tohka Yatogami Taito Figure

Gundam Parody

Hontōni Hontōni Hontōni Really? Really? Really? Code name: Princess who is as innocent as a baby when love sealed away her powers. Having finished watching season one, it's a hilarious anime incorporating fight scenes. Much like a dating game with a dash of ecchi-ness and occasional parodies of other mecha anime. 

Date A Live Tohka Yatogami by Taito can say to be the most affordable Tohka available. Some say its counterfeit nonetheless the quality of this prize figure is pretty good. There's a close face resemblance to the anime, though not perfect. Her expression is a bit pissed which presented the moment she descend to earth, dress in black, cream, and pink color scheme and a set of purple and cream plated armor, adorned her shoulders and waist. 

The paint job is clean and neat, which is uncommon to a typical prize item. Just look at the dress is open at the back and made up into a black corset, exposing some of her cleavage. An umbrella like knee-length skirt which has a pink-to-white gradient. Beautiful hair tied back by butterfly-shaped hair accessory. Ready stance, with arms in gauntlets and petal-like cuffs holding her board sword known as the 'Sandalphon', which needed the knot at the end of the handle to be removed for the figure to hold. Overall, this is a recommendable 1/8 scale, approximately 6" figure to acquire. In good texture with few seam lines been spotted.

uhmmmm, series with a touch of humor and parody are more usual nowadays... maybe is the fact that the world is becoming more and more cynical as time passes HEHE...

i can see the toy industry has been improving their quality in all the lines, including those more affordable... i think a trading figure like this, hardly would have this level of detail and finishes not so long ago, the translucent skirt is specially appealing and brings lightness to the rather heavy armored suit... very nice figure indeed !!! =)

Goes to say the influence of Gundam to fans of mecha anime for parody to happen. Date.A.Live is an awesome anime and if didn't watch, you are really missing out something.

It never appeared Taito to be a big player in figurine but I do know that their big hit was the arcade game 'Bubble Puzzle'. This figure have some obvious seam lines which can be seen however they are consider minor. This is probably the cheapest Tohka figure you can get in her armour. She's such a lovable character that's hard to resist not getting.
