While browsing the latest issue of Hobby Japan (#11, November 2008), one of the figures caught my attention, Nanako Sakura. At first glance I thought it was another Shana figure (Shakugan no Shana), but noticed the familiar Sakura Sakura logo.
I remember vaguely admiring artwork from the series over half a year ago, but never figuring out what exactly it was from. After a little searching, Sakura Sakura turns out to be a new ero game that will be releasing this month.
The sculpt looks excellent and overall character design exceeds my expectations. Definitely keep an eye out on this figure.
From what I can make out, this figure will be released by Megahouse's Brilliant Stage figure line for 7,040 yen.
