Appearance

Torajiro is a preteen boy with fair skin, wavy blonde hair long enough to tie back in a small ponytail, and bright green eyes. He has two small markings on each cheek reminiscent of a cat's whiskers, and a wide, cat-like mouth. He wears a black cap with a bright green bill and metal plating on the crown, a brown vest over a black shirt with yellow highlights, green wristbands, yellow shorts, and green-and-white sneakers with dark green soles. He also wears red headphones around his neck and has large, colorful buttons on his clothing, a green one on the bottom of his vest and blue and red buttons on his shorts.

During winter, Torajiro wears his shorts and shoes with a cream coloured sweatshirt, a black and red jacket and black long johns.

Description

Torajiro is a free-spirited boy who likes to go with the flow and believes in the importance of freedom and expressing one's emotions. Online, he is a famous AppTuber known by the nickname "Astora". The catchphrase he usually uses during his videos is "Do I feel it? Don't I? I totally do!" (ノレる? ノレない? 超ノレる! Noreru? Nore nai? Chou noreru!?).

Torajiro's family are Grand Masters of a tea ceremony school, and are very strict and traditional.

His Apptter username is @Asutoramu. The Fifth Applidriver!

Development

At some point, Astora's name, Torajiro, was intended to be written as "寅次郎", which uses a different kanji for "tiger" ( tora?).[2]
