While the 20th Anniversary of the Sakura Wars series has come and gone, events are still being held throughout this year to commemorate the storied history of the franchise.
First, Cinema City and Kotobukiya are partnering together to screen “Sakura Wars: The Movie” in Tachikawa, Tokyo. Chisa Yokoyama, the voice actor for Sakura Shinguuji, will also be present for a talk segment. The screening begins at 4:30 PM on November 3rd, and tickets cost 2,500円 across 382 seats.
ARTFX J is also developing a Sakura Shinguuji figure, which can be seen at this page. A short PV has also been produced and uploaded to Kotobukiya’s YouTube channel to promote the Sakura figure:
The figure will cost 13,800円 and is produced at 1/8 scale!
Additionally, a third iteration of what has now became the Sakura Wars Museum series will be held at the Akihabara GAMERS location! The next Sakura Wars Museum will be open from November 4th to November 20th. A new round of character goods will be introduced, and this time some of them goods will feature more characters from the Paris Assault Force. For example, the new round of acrylic key charms will feature all women of the Tokyo and Paris Assault Forces. However, members of the New York Combat Revue will also be present in the A4 file set and the mouse pad. There are many items to be purchased, once again!
The festivities seem to be continuing for Sakura Wars! Perhaps we may yet see more from this series in the future? Let us hope.
