Comments: Underappreciated doll of the year? ::laughs:: Really, I'd like
to make a club for underappreciated dolls with Tida and Maria as the mascots. ^^ Tida was
released by Volks at the same time as two other artist dolls, Curo and Hazuka.
Apparently Tida was the least popular. I can't see why ^^;;;........she has a
beautiful face and hair and her clothes are lovely. I admit that she doesn't have
the same "appeal" some of the more provocative Volks dolls, but she is one
classy lady ^____^! And, as usual, this doll belongs to my sister. (Why does
she get all the really nice dolls?) She looks a lot like Mokuren from the manga and
anime series "Please Save My Earth."
According to the note from Volks that came with her, Tida and her brother lived in
ancient Japan and were used as pawns in a civil war because of their special powers and
ability to hear the voices of the gods. Her brother was the head of a tribe in Kyushu and
she was forced by the Emperor to become a priestess in Okinawa. According to the
story, and woman named Shino in modern-day Japan discovers that she is the reincarnation
of Tida. Tida means "sun" in Okinawa dialect. Now, how's that
for a story? ^___^
Tida was created by the Japanese shoujo manga artist Mayumi Nozuma. More of her
dolls are pictured in the Volks Dolpa File SP, and they're all wonderful. I thought
that the one with the black hair was a girl for the longest time, but he and the others
are beautiful ^^;;;.......
Leene's Comments: Tida-sama intimidates me a little, to tell you the truth.
She really must have reached a higher state of being than the rest of us
^___^;;;......I wouldn't be surprised to catch Lagla and her gang asking for her advice.
I hope she can steer us all in the right direction...
