Hostess of Chupa♡Cabra
|List of Appearances | Gallery|
Taruho, whose stage name is Arisa (アリサ, Arisa), is one of the two prominent employees of Death City's resident cabaret club, Chupa♡Cabra's. However, she was later revealed to be a witch by Medusa and a spy for Arachnophobia. Her magic theme is fireflies, as suggested by her name.
Despite being chosen by Mosquito to gather information for Arachnophobia, the decision seems to have been concluded over her physical proportions rather than her actual abilities or intelligence, as the usefulness of their information is predominantly questionable as it is suggested that it was obtained from a drunk and self-embellishing Spirit.
However, Taruho seems to be a fun-loving individual, wanting her customers to have a good time along with her. She also very naive, believing a drunken spirit and taking it as potential intelligence for Arachnophobia. She also seems to be an individual who likes to keep up with the the trends within the young witches.
Arisa, while at work, wears a blue dress. She has hazel colored eyes. Her hair is rather short and slightly darker than her Tabasa's.
In her later appearances, she now instead wears a bright dress, which looks as if it had been made out of flowers. On her shoulders are presumably wings and, at her head, both left and right glowing orbs are attached. Her clothes now resemble her theme more: Fireflies.
- They seem to be great friends, partnering and helping each other out. They're both also chosen as agents of Arachnophobia to spy on DWMA.
- Due to how often he frequents Chupa♡Cabra's, Spirit is well known to many of the women working at the club, especially Risa and Arisa who regularly attend to his entertainment. However, in doing so the pair have been leaking information to Arachnophobia thanks entirely to Spirit's drunken rambling, who has unknowingly been helping Arachne to spy on DWMA.
- After Blair becomes an employee at Chupa♡Cabra, Taruho appears to befriend her.
Although confirmed to be a witch by Medusa, her magical capabilities are unknown. She is assumed to have some unique spells though only has been seen casting magic in which witches can commonly cast.
In an attempt to allay his grief after facing rejection from his own daughter, Spirit decides to visit the city's resident cabaret club Chupa♡Cabra's, a place he frequents all too often. It's there, attended to by both Risa and Arisa, where he finally manages to console himself, that is until Arisa mistakingly brings up the topic of Maka even after Risa advises against doing so. Through Spirit's subsequent fit of tears and sorrowful disposition, Risa explains the familys current situation, which sees Spirit facing not only divorce negotiations with his wife but a daughter who has now set out purposefully to create a powerful scythe just to spite him. With this said, Spirit charges from the club spouting his love for Maka, where the two girls in cheerful unity simply state to "come again ♡".
Risa and Arisa are eventually revealed to be two witches in Arachne's organization, Arachnophobia. They have been leaking information to Arachnophobia through Death Scythe, who unknowingly helps Arachne to spy on DWMA. They are also shown to be appalled by Death Scythe and mock him when he's away. Once they are exposed as witches thanks to a list provided by Medusa, however, the two are taken into custody by Death Scythe and Sid.
The pair later returned to the club, exonerated from their crimes and have been seen doing a promotion with Blair, where they are observed propositioning themselves to various DWMA students.
Salvage (Part 1)

- In the Anime, Tabasa and Taruho are not witches.
