The Hunt comes to an end

… what did I say about the neemo trap yesterday? Lol! (*≧▽≦)ノシ)) Here we are again, ahem… it took me about four months to hunt down this particular doll. When she was originally released, there was one on Y!J but I had to let her pass because my funds were tied elsewhere… and then, nothing for months, even though I kept checking, like, basically every day. ヽ(;´Д`)ノ Until a couple of weeks ago, I spotted an auction that had this doll’s name in the title, BUT a different doll’s name in the description – and no photo. Σ(゜ロ゜;) So I didn’t dare to bid in case it was the doll in the description, because it was one of my least favourites and I would’ve been so disappointed if I’d gotten the wrong one… ~( ´•︵•` )~

But a few days later after the auction had ended (with no bids), it got updated with a photo as no one had bid on it – and it WAS this particular doll that I wanted! Σ(´゚ω゚` ) I was all darn, I should’ve bid on her while I had the chance… but luckily I didn’t get any competition and managed to win her for 18k yen, phew! (*ノ´□`)ノ~ That was pretty much my maximun price, although at this point I would’ve probably paid more for her just to finally get her home…

Aanyway, she finally arrived today!! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ

The box~
Oohh, pink packaging paper here as well! (╯✧∇✧)╯
Ta-dah! Fluffy Hopping Bunny coordinate set Minami-sensei~ 。゚✶ฺ.ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ.✶゚ฺ。 I’d been wanting her for so long and once this bunny coordinate version was released, I HAD to have her! ♥
I’m on a mission to collect all the animal hats, lol! (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖ I did hunt down the Fluffy Bunny coordinate Mia to get the outfit for my Usagi-san Miu, so naturally I needed this matching version for my Haru Usagi-san Mia~ ♥
Cute Minami is cuuute! (人´ω`*)♡ She’s got such a gentle expression~ This black haired version is my favourite, I just adore neemo girls with dark hair~ ♥
The braid is so neat! I’d planned to open it, but seeing it now… I think I don’t dare to, not for a while anyway, haha~ (๑´ㅂ`๑)
Tried the bunny hood hat on her, eheheh~ ( *¯ ³¯*)♡
Photographed all the pieces when I undressed her, so that I could put the outfit on my lovely Kotone~ ´͈ ᵕ `͈ ♡°◌̊ The brown pantyhose are so nice!! I’m happy that I’ve been getting some pantyhose lately, I have so many socks and stockings already, haha~
I dug through my neemo clothes for a while searching for an outfit for her… as I switched her on the LL-bust body and I have few tops that fit the huge bust, lol.( ´∀`)This coordinate ended up really cute and appropriate for autumn, though~ ♥
Close up of her sweet face~ Her eyes are such a lovely rich reddish brown! (´ ▽`).。o♡
One thing I’m sad about is that I haven’t been able to buy an L-size body so that she could be as tall and slender as her friend Kasumi. ( ´△`) Like, sure, there are lots of people who are shorter than others their age, but I already have a bunch of girls on the M-size body, so I really wanted Mio and Minami to be my L-size girls (with the big bust). I am a sad panda! ヾ( •́д•̀ ;)ノ
One of my favourite thing about the L body is the slender and looong legs! ♥ Kasumi’s dress was too poofy so you can’t see her legs in full, but already the calves are much longer and put her knees higher than on the M-size body.
Then I dressed Kotone and grabbed Kotori to take a photo of them in their matching looks. Too cuuuteeee!!! ヾ(o≧∀≦o)ノ゙ ♥ ♥ ♥
A close up with a super quick set up…
And a test with Sanae as well~ ♥

It’s always so nice to finally get ahold of a doll that you’ve been looking for a long time! ╰( ・ ᗜ ・ )╯ Minami is definitely just as lovely as I’d imagined her to be! It’s too bad that I wasn’t able to get her the L-type body… I should’ve bought that one in storage instead of M-size LL-bust body, since now there are still M/LL bodies around, but no L-bodies… except in white skin. Azone seems to have discontinued the Natural skin L-size body. Only some of their character series dolls have L-type body or, like, L-size legs… in December Kasumigaoka Utaha will be released and she’s got L legs with M torso, so perhaps I can at least get L-legs for my Sanae if I can hunt that doll down on the aftermarket for a low price… sometimes the character dolls can sell for around 8000 yen, which isn’t a bad price… but with my luck, Utaha is gonna be one of the expensive ones, I’m sure… ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ

I really wish Azone would sell Minami-sensei and Mio on the L-type bodies originally, I like having a variety of heights in my doll collection… they’re intended as older characters, too, so a taller body would make sense. Especially Minami-sensei is definitely an adult. I do think that Minami and Mio suit the L-type body the best…

But yeah, I decided to name my Minami as Sanae. It’s a lovely name and also a small tribute to Nagisa’s parents in CLANNAD. I hate Nagisa with a passion (airheaded overly goody-good girls not my type) but her parents Sanae-san and Akio are the best!!! Nagisa’s route and the After Story would’ve been plain torture if it weren’t for her awesome parents, lol~ (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖ I’d probably never finished the visual novel otherwise (the anime is total crap, the VN is the only thing to love). But yeah, the kanji that I chose for my Sae is 眞恵. The first one is “truth, reality” and the second one “blessing, grace, kindness”. Shes a very warm-hearted person who wants to help others to the best of her ability, so I thought that this writing for her name would be the most descriptive one~
