Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I hope you’re having a good April! It’s still a bit cold here; I’m trying to stay warm!

Today I’ll be taking a look at…

Sakura Kinomoto: Hello Brand New World

From the anime series “Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card” comes a 1/7th scale figure of Sakura Kinomoto! Dressed in her outft from the “CLEAR” opening, Sakura has been recreated floating gently above a Clear Card in an original pose.

The layered frills of her skirt, soft appearance of the ribbon from Flight and the sharp-looking crystals surrounding the card have all been recreated in stunning detail. Translucent parts have been used in several places, making for a lightweight and bright appearance. Be sure to add this charming figure of Sakura-chan to your collection.


From here on too, together with you.

From the anime series “Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card” comes a scale figure of the 1st year Tomoeda Junior High School student, Sakura Kinomoto!

The fluttering of her tutu-like dress from the “CLEAR” opening has been expertly recreated!

The ribbon from her Flight ability and the frills of her skirt have also been carefully painted!

This pose of Sakura-chan gently floating down onto the Clear Card is a Good Smile Company original pose!

▲The way her translucent Flight ribbon parts catch the light is extraordinary!

Sakura holds the dream wand over her head as she gives a lovable smile. It makes you feel a sense of safety, as though she’s guiding you forward to a brighter day!

Her costume and the Flight parts are primarily made using translucent parts, giving the figure a lightweight and bright appearance.

You can enjoy this floating feeling from any angle, so be sure to check out all of the angles when you take her home! (ノ`・∀・)ノ

Painting translucent parts requires quite a bit of technical paintwork so as to not ruin the clear look of the parts while still using enough paint for it to show. It’s a fairly delicate process!

Not only that, but this figure features a lot of white areas, making the process all the more delicate!

When painting with a white-based palette, it’s very easy to change the color by adding too much of a certain color to the white color. The painter of this figure, Kenji Sasaki, and I had to go through a lot of trial and error to get the right balance!◎

Not just the beautiful frills of her skirt, but every individual part of the figure has been carefully considered in creating the paintwork. ((`・∀・´))

Let’s take a quick look at the base!

The crystal shards from the opening surround the Flight card in the middle. ₍(∩´ ᵕ `∩)⁾⁾
If you look close, you can also see that the base in in the shape of a crescent moon! 🌙

The crystals have a bit more sharp of an appearance than her skirt and the Flight parts of the figure. The differences are really pleasing to the eye!

You may have noticed the detailed sculpting of the card from this angle!

The Clear Card has been carefully sculpted to not appear flat but not appear too pronounced either! It’s another great highlight of this figure! (The part where the support arm connects to the card being in the shape of a cherry blossom is another great touch!)

Not to mention the cherry blossom sitting gently at Sakura’s foot! っ(੭ु´ ᐜ ` )੭ु⁾⁾

This was the idea of sculptor Kai Sasaki, based on the opening “Catch You Catch Me” from “Cardcaptor Sakura”!

It’s a bit hard to explain, but the cherry blossom kind of says, “Sakura-chan is still here and her story still continues!”
