Nesoberi Tanya Degurechaff Review: Part 3

Hello everyone and welcome to the third and final part of the Tanya Trilogy! Today, we will be taking a look at the third variant, the "crazy" Tanya Nesoberi to wrap up this three part series. In the first part, we took a look at the "normal" Tanya and the implications of Sega's Nesoberi plush series together with the variations in sizes it has developed throughout the years. In the second part, we looked at the meticulous attention to detail put into each of these. 

In today's third and final part of the series, we will be taking a look at Tanya at the final variant of Nesoberi Tanya. Just like the first two, Tanya's expression is one that has been lifted from the anime adaptation and features. In particular, the look Tanya has when she concocts some sort of grand plan in her mind. 

With her wide opened eyes and evil smile, Tanya sports her crazed look several times over the course of the series making it one of her signature expressions. Personally, this is my favorite Tanya expression among the three variants for the Nesoberi.

Tanya's eyes are aligned towards the center of her face giving an intense focused expression that is sure to intimidate any one on the opposite side of her glare.

Complementing her crazy eyes are her wild blonde lock which have several layers and rough edges. The detailing on Tanya's hair is consistent throughout all three variants of Tanya Nesoberi(s) so, potential collectors and owners need not worry about that factor. 

Even in the smaller Nesoberi form factor, minor detailing such as Tanya's ears have not been omitted. Although, in this case, they do look like they are positioned too far away from Tanya's head.

Other fine details include Tanya's emotive cowlick and the pink elastic strap that can be used to hang up the Nesoberi Tanya. This feature is one unique to the original Nesoberi sizes as the larger Jumbo and above are too large to be hung up. 

Accompanying Tanya's wild fringe and emotive cowlick is her fluffy ponytail which she usually keep neatly tied. Tanya ties her ponytail higher up on her head which makes it less noticeable when viewed from the front in all forms of visual media (light novel, manga and anime). The same can be seen here as Tanya's ponytail is located rather high up allowing it to be scaled to a rather comically large size. 

From end to end, Nesoberi Tanya measures roughly 15 cm. The same as both the other Nesoberi Tanya variants. The considerably smaller size may actually be a plus point for collectors who prefer to bring around their Nesoberi plush with them. Something which is not as practical with the larger Jumbo or Mega Jumbo Nesoberi plush.

Aside from her expression, Tanya shares the same mage outfit as "God-like" Tanya. When put side-by-side, you would be hard pressed to notice any difference between the two in terms of outfits.

It is only when you look closer that you realize that Tanya's Operation Orb is actually missing. Gone is the Elinium Type 95 Operation Orb in place of some blank space. I am not particularly bothered by the omission of the Operation Orb as there have been scenes where Tanya has indeed unequipped her Operation Orb. 

Otherwise, the entire military uniform is exactly identical to the "God-like" Tanya counterpart down to the power cable leading to the right boot. No complaints here. 

Of the three variants produced by Sega, this is probably the one with the greatest impact solely because of Tanya's facial expression. Those who have not watched the series may miss the point with her golden eyes or even her "normal" expression, simply dismissing it as another military character. But, the crazy eyes are sometime so unique to Tanya that helps to make this Nesoberi stand out all the more among its brethren. 

Till date, Sega has produced four Nesoberi Tanya. Three in the normal Nesoberi size (as we have explored in the Tanya Trilogy) and one in Mega Jumbo Nesoberi guise. Yet, one cannot help but feel that the full potential of Tanya plush toys (Nesoberi in particular) have yet to be fully realized. Is it wishful thinking to hope that Sega will make a pajamas version? It probably is but, that is not going to stop me from banking my hopes and dream on these wonderful plush toys. 

With that, we have come to an end of our Tanya Trilogy. If you have any questions or opinions about the review, feel free to leave them in the comments section below. We would love to hear what you have to say. Until then, thank you so much for reading and have yourself a wonderful day ahead.
