This doll started out as a combination of an Azone International head placed on an Obitsu 50cm body used under license and available in Japan only. Originally sold in 2013, my particular doll ended up in Sweden of all places before I bought her off Ebay circa 2014.
- Date of acquisition:
- Reason for choice:
- Originally I was seeking a doll that used the Obitsu body which was my only experience in the doll hobby, found Mei on Ebay of all places and knew I wouldn't get another chance with such a rare doll so I jumped on the opportunity.
- Best Points:
- Some people dislike them but I adore the double-jointed knees. They work more similar to a human's kneecaps and can bend further than that other popular vinyl doll body.
- Worst Points:
- The neck is so much longer than it needs to be and taking photos in a way that hides it is difficult.
For a while she stayed as a simple Misaki Mei like any other, original eyes, factory bob-cut wig with ahoge, original school uniform and original 50cm body. Somewhere along the way I decided she'd be cuter as a Parabox 40cm body, which makes her look much closer to 10 years old than her original character's 15. While I was at it she borrowed a long, hime-cut wig from another doll and well she's had it ever since. I had to buy the donor doll a new wig because she wasn't getting Mei's back any time soon.
