What the …? Mirei-san again!? Well, this one is a bit different as this is an alternative color, and the figure is said to be one of those usual limited-for-special-event-edition. Mmmhh not that limited if you ask me, since I saw it in a lot of online stores.
Anyway, even if I already own the common version, I was also quite interrested in this red/dark Mirei-san, much more than the beige/blond other one, which do is limited, for real I think, as I didn’t see much more pictures of this version.
So, if you are not sick yet of Shunya Yamashita’s “3D version” girls, there are few more photos after the jump ^^
Ok I cheated. The glasses don’t come with the figure. They belong to Shii-chan who generously lent her second pair. And I have to admit they suit Mirei-sensei pretty well.
Like the two other figures of her, this one comes with an additional right arm and hair style. Hair up and pencil in the hand is still my favorite setting, even more with the glasses.
Despite the color changes, another difference is that her right shoe is harder to fix. Maybe it is just me… but this is like trying Cinderella’s glass slipper, and even worse since there is no need to put it wholly. Though these red shoes are very nice and shining.
Oh and by the way, the chair is exactly the same. No various color for seats… poor ordinary objects. I wish I had valho‘s patience to make a little paper origami mac and/or a complet desk like he did for his Mirei-san, but I really suck on plastic arts. I give it a try, but that is hopeless ^^;

Spot the difference
To end with, the obvious parallel picture. It can’t be helped.
4 mistakes slipped themselves into these two pictures. So, spot the differences! Hehe reminds me those puzzle games I used to play when I was a child. I loved this kind of game ^^
