Sakura-Miku-Man is back! Now available at Family Mart.
Last March, Family Mart released the cutest An-man (a steamed bun with a redbean jam filling) in collaboration with Hatsune Miku.
Because Sakura (cherry blossom) season is just around the corner, this An-man's Hatsune Miku has pink colored hair, not the usual turquoise hair. Therefore, it's called Sakura-Miku-Man. Her famous pigtails are recreated on Sakura-Miku-Man.
