I sold my last Misaki doll about two years ago. I was a big fan. They were adorable until they weren't anymore. That's an old story and I moved on from there.
When I saw The Tenth Anniversary Misaki "Tokyo Here We Go" she sucked me right back in. I was a fan from the start of this outfit, first in white, then black and now in blue.
I had the black one. Look how perfectly adorable her hair is. Everything was done so well.
I never bought the white (Marui) one. Apparently you can still find one for between $600-$700.
This is not my photo. It is from a Japanese selling site called Buyee.
The seller is helensstory8 and I'm guessing the picture was taken by her.
Both of the earlier dolls had finely done, more complicated hairstyles than this anniversary edition whose hair needs some styling.
The dress and boots on the new girl are nicely made. I would have liked if the mesh tights and arm covers were a tighter weave as they had been in the past.
If you are getting this doll be aware that the necklace is very fragile. A piece fell off of mine as I was attempting gently to put it on. I had to cobble together a new connection with jumprings and hooks from other pieces of older jewelry. Finally, I took off her head using the heating pad method, put the necklace on and then put her head back on. What a fiddly pain.
Now THWG2016 is standing next to my one and only Poppy Parker, probably never to be played with and will go down in history as another cute impulse buy.
