2015 Bandai Cardcaptor Fuuin no Tsue Remake

July 21, 2015

They say the best part of being a grownup is making your childhood dreams come true! And I cannot argue with that!

I preordered the 2015 remake of the Bandai Cardcaptor Sakura Sealing Wand earlier this year, and it finally arrived. Bandai released this remake in honor of Nakayoshi’s 60th anniversary.

I remember wanting this sealing wand since I first saw Cardcaptors around 2000. Of course, without a developed online shopping environment (and the fact that I was just a child), it was impossible to find Cardcaptor Sakura merchandise in the US.

This is how the box looks

This is how the box looks. It was huge!

During that time, there was lot of Japanese cartoon exposure in North America, but not enough merchandise to supplement the demand from young consumers. This is because most likely such items released in Japan a few years before the cartoons aired in America, and were no longer in circulation.

As for the actual product itself, it makes a noise when you swing it. Just like how Sakura does it in the cartoon! Aparently the 1999/2004 version was extremely finicky when it came to producing sounds when you swing it. But not this version! It is very responsive to movement.

I love the sleek design of this new model. I was surprised to see no scratches! A few of the Sailor Moon merchandise, I have ordered had little indents or discoloration. It was very pristine.
