Bundled together with the BD release of the anime, this special prequel introduces us to a Misaki Mei in a time before Class 3-3. Unlike the withdrawn outcast we see in the main series, this Mei is almost colorful in comparison, smiling and speaking with little reserve. A good amount of her joy stems from a friendship with her twin sister, Fujioka Misaki. As viewers of the show know, an ill fortune awaits the other Misaki sister.
