I love the details Azone added to Aika. Her eyes have a cute heart in them and her dress has a heart design in the center. She has so much passion!
And she’s the first EX-Cute with a ponytail (that’s interesting)
But I’m not a fan of the color combination they chose for Aika’s outfit. It feels like it clashes with her hair and eye color.
I’m so torn. I want to add her to my collection but . . . I’m still on the fence. I like both versions but I’m not sure how challenging it would be to add the direct store ver. to my dolly family.
I have a few weeks to decide. The dolly decisions continue.
How do you feel about the 2nd magical EX-Cute, Burning Passion Aika? Which version do you prefer: the regular ver. or the direct store ver. or both?

I look forward to chatting with you.

I’m not a fan of the outfit either, I liked Koron’s a lot, but so far Chiika’s and Aika’s outfits have been disapointing.
I love her expresion, but the colour (and lenght) of the normal version hair is not really up my alley.
the direct sales ver. hair looks a tad better in my opinion, but not enough to justify the hassle that would be getting her. Aika is my favorite ex cute, but seems like I’ll be passing on her…
I am right there with you. I adore Aika but have decided to pass on this release.
I kept going back and forth on whether to get her or not. When I struggle to make a yes or no decision, the answer is usually no.
So I’ll be enjoying Aika by looking at owner pics.
I’m waiting to see the professional photos of Chiika. At the event she didn’t sparkle like I thought she would. Hopefully, that was due to the lighting at the event.
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about Aika and Chiika,
