A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Kotobukiya continues its hit line of incredible Street Fighter Bishoujo statues, adding another beautiful lady to the current collection of Juri, Cammy, and Chun-Li. Up next is the schoolgirl who wants to be just like her hero Ryu, SAKURA! One of the bestselling video game franchises of all time, Street Fighter first debuted in 1987 with its unique blend of one on one combat and international characters (and fighting styles). Sakura Kasugano first began her training after seeing Ryu in the World Warrior tournament and sought him out to teach her, learning his moves and practicing his Ansatsuken techniques. Now the feisty young fighter joins the Bishoujo statue lineup based on an all new illustration by Shunya Yamashita!
Sakura explodes into action, leaping into the air to deliver a powerful attack! The young martial artist looks fierce yet adorable in her modified schoolgirl sailor outfit with blue and white blouse, blue skirt, blue socks, and red shoes. Sakura’s fantastic pose shows off her athletic physique and reveals some of her red undergarments; the girl also accessorizes with a yellow necktie, white headband with long ties, and red fingerless fighting gloves. Fantastic sculpted details include her expressive face and the intricate flowing of her clothing and short hair; in fact, there’s so much movement in this presentation you’ll swear Sakura is leaping right off of your shelf!
Sculpted by Masahiro Takahashi, Sakura stands 9 ½ inches tall (1/7 scale) as she leaps off of her specially designed display base. The schoolgirl and Ryu fan looks amazing on her own and even better alongside other Street Fighter Bishoujo statues like Cammy, Chun-Li, and Juri.
