I've been looking for the brown-haired version with a reasonable price for months and this was only the second one I've seen for sale, even though I check Mandarake and Y!J daily! The first Minami-sensei I saw was like 2 months ago and it was gone before I could buy her. So it seems like she's quite rare, the other version I've seen pop up quite often. I really shouldn't have bought another doll right now, but with Minami I just couldn't risk that if I let this one go, I might not see another for many months ;__;

I had already bought this girl when I was writing the meet-up post, but since you never know whether or not you actually get an item from Mandarake until you get a confirmation... I'm a bit superstitious, so didn't want to mention anything before I was sure, fearing that if I spoke about it aloud I might end up not getting the doll after all and being all disappointed >3<
And speaking of being superstitious, I really think that Tiinyan's Minami-sensei was my Lady Luck here, so thank you SO MUCH for bringing your girl to the meet-up! ♥ I can't believe how she found her grail Candy Cotton Miu soon after I got mine, and now I found Minami-sensei on the next day from seeing hers in person XD Hope we can get some group pictures someday~
Sarg actually purchased the other version a while ago, she's already in the Finnish customs (with my Lil Fairy Erunoe) waiting for us to pay the custom fees! Sarg wanted to give her girl a Scandinavian name (Malla), so I chose a matching name to my Minami as well, since they're going to be sisters x3 My girl's name will be Janna!
Malla is the younger sister that often takes the students hiking and camping on her biology lessons, while the older Janna teaches languages and also sometimes substitutes on gym lessons~

And to celebrate purchasing Minami-sensei, I dressed some of my girls into their school uniforms and took a few photos ^^ Hopefully the second desk set will arrive soon (it was missing from my order and they offered to send it separately later) and Minami-sensei too, so we can take some fun school photos ;3;
