Even after I decided on the 1:6 Pure Neemo size range, I still had a lot of options in front of me. First of all, there's size variation within the 1:6 scale. These dolls can be XS (extra small, 7.2 inches), S (small, 7.76 inches), M (medium, 8.43 inches) or L (large, 8.86 inches). There's some chest size variation, too. In addition, not all Pure Neemo bodies are articulated in the same way. I ended up with what's called a regular Flection body, but there are also Flection Advanced and Flection Full-Action bodies...the latter of which I probably would have liked better than the one I bought. However, I got distracted by the characters of the dolls and didn't pay enough attention to articulation until it was too late. I was fascinated by the characters because many of the Pure Neemo dolls are based on Japanese anime series. I didn't want to buy a doll without knowing her backstory, so I watched quite a bit of anime.
After browsing and deliberating, I decided on a doll from the K-On! anime collection. The K-On! manga and anime follow a group of Japanese high school girls who belong to a rock band. My doll is named Tsumugi Kotobuki (Mugi for short), and she is the band's wealthy and kindhearted keyboard player:
