The correct pronunciation for Johanna is 'Yohanna', with a soft 'y' and not a hard 'j'.
Like all SD16 girls so far, Johanna comes with both high heeled legs and optional normal legs with ankle joints that can be easily switched.
Johanna has the same headmold as Iris. The only difference is that Iris is normal skintone, while Johanna is white.
For the Dolpa 20 After Event, Johanna and Iris will only be available via the Volks website. They will not be avaliable in-store.
Johanna is a part of the 'Journey to Dream Nights: Chapter 3' story arc along with Iris. Their story is based on the well-known fairytale "Little Snow White". It is based on the original Grimm Brother's version, not the watered-down Disney version.

Continued from Iris' story...

With each passing day, Iris grew more and more beautiful. The Queen looked at her daughter, nestled up close against the King just as if they were lovers. She could not be sure of the King's affection for her, and so she turned to the mirror hanging in her room.

"Mirror, Mirror, on the wall. Who is the fairest of them all?"
"My Queen, my Queen. You are the fairest one of all."

Yes. Every day, the Queen stood before the mirror and repeated these same words. And then, one beautiful winter day, as the snow spiraled down outside, the Queen asked the mirror this:

"Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who is the fairest of them all, and the most loved by the King?"
"My Queen, my Queen. You are the fairest one of all. But the one most loved by the King..."
The mirror's words... Although nobody knew, it seems the Queen could not dislodge those words from her mind.

It is after that that the tale of Queen Johanna and her daughter Iris truly begins, but I'll leave it here for today. How about I have you listen plenty to my Dream Night stories again some other night? Until then, why don't you have yourself a little rest?

The tale of Princess Iris, as beautiful as the snow, and Queen Johanna.
Can you see these two beauties reflected in the mirror of your heart? A mysterious tale, where the tears of your heart will glisten within the beauty. Don't miss the continuation of this story!
