This time Azone & designer Chikuro drew inspiration from the classic tale Anne of Green Gables
Azone is offering their fans 2 versions of Sera: a Sera of Green Gables (she’s a regular release) and a Sera of Blue Gables (she’s an Azone direct store exclusive).
Before we take a closer look at the girls, let’s get caught up on the endearing tale:
Girl with Red Hair
On a green hill as a gentle spring breeze blows, a single lovely, redheaded girl arrives holding a large suitcase in both hands.
The girl didn’t like her own red hair, so she always imagined herself as a girl with beautiful black hair and violet eyes.
One day, when the girl went out to pick flowers, a sweet girl with the black hair and violet eyes that she had always imagined descended into a field covered in multicolored flowers.

What . . .? To be continued?
Does that mean Azone wants us to get both girls to find out what will happen next?
But Wait There’s More!
Azone gives us a brief glimpse behind the concept designed for the 2 Sera girls
Her lovely, refreshingly green dress with a round collar combined with an ivory apron gives her a simple, girlish look.
When the camisole dress worn on the inside is combined with a boater hat, it can be fun even as a summer dress.
The black haired girl “Sera” has a vibrant, blue dress decorated with frills and a stand up collar.
If that’s combined with an off white apron featuring letter pockets with a letter motif, it gives her the look of a classical and tidy girl.
The boots and the chic, two tone suitcase with subdued colors are also a focal point.Azone International
Man on man. Azone, I was prepared to get one girl but now the story will simply be incomplete without both girls.
This is why I have a Love/Hate relationship with Azone.
I love all their beautiful girls but hate that I have to choose between them because my wallet cannot handle every girl or boy released (come on wallet, work with me here).
Oh well, I guess some months you gotta make those tough decision. I just wished it wasn’t the month of April.
