Introduction to Pure Neemo

What is Pure Neemo?

"Pure Neemo" is the name of a type of 1/6 scale anime/manga influenced doll produced by the Japanese company Azone International since 2005.  The highly articulated dolls stand approximately 21.5-25cm (8.5-10 inches) tall and have a range of body types from extra small to large.  

Pure Neemo dolls are normally released under Azone's original labels, "Ex☆Cute," and "Sahra's a・la・mode."  Azone also releases Pure Neemo Character Dolls in collaboration with game and animation studios.  Although individual Pure Neemo parts can be purchased for a truly DIY custom doll, there are no standard models and each release has a very limited run. Once they're gone, they're gone!

Ex☆Cute Series

Ex☆Cute (えっくす☆きゅーと) is the name of the first Pure Neemo series created by Azone and designed is Omoi Ataru (思い当たる).  The series consists of a core group of 7 friends who are classmates at St. Portre Dame Women's College Junior High School.  "Ex☆Cute" is the name of their group/friends club.  Although they call themselves a group, they make a point that they don't really do anything in particular... other than call themselves Ex☆Cutes.

There is a related series called "Ex☆Cute Family" that consists of the classmates, friends, and family of the main seven.

Sahra's a・la・mode Series

Sahra's a・la・mode is the second series of Pure Neemo to be released starting in 2010.  The series is centered around the main character, Sahra, and her four friends. The girls are all between 15-16 years old and are always released on the Pure Neemo M size body. To learn more about the characters, visit the character page ^_^.

Although the series did not kick off until 2010, Sahra has existed since 2000. Before focusing on dolls, Azone produced apparel and accessories. Sahra was created as a model for some of their early doll clothing. The original Sahra had a very similar eye design to the current Pure Neemo Sahra, however the sculpt of the head was quite different. She was released on a Takara body which has different proportions than Pure Neemo.

Pure Neemo Bodies

Pure Neemo Advance

Pure Neemo Advance is the very first type of Pure Neemo body.  It was used for Pure Neemo Ex☆Cute dolls from the 1st to 5th series (2005-2009).  It features the least articulation with joints at the neck, shoulder, upper arm, wrist, waist, and thighs.  Several optional pose bodies were also sold as a part of the Advance line.  The bodies only come in the basic flesh tone.  The A and B types also have two additional variants: a "shadow" type with body blushing and a "soft vinyl" type.  For the most part, all Advance bodies are long sold out and can be difficult to come across.
