Her cute but sensible face will remind me never to do anything stupid
As I have noted on this here website before, I have a selection of toys lined up on my PC desk to keep me on the straight and narrow. From Animal Crossing‘s Isabelle, to Persona 5 jailers Justine & Caroline, my placement of these stoic and sensible folk is designed to keep me from straying too far into laziness and procrastination. And it looks like a brand new figurine is set to join my desktop collection, in the form of the titular Sakuna, hero of Edelweiss’ Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin!
Princess Sakuna is the newest member of Good Smile Company’s “Pop-Up Parade”: an array of stylish, non-poseable figurines based on various anime and video game franchises. The Harvest Goddess stands just under seven inches tall and is depicted in her paddy field gear, complete with her magical sash and awesome sun hat. Sakuna is working hard to bring crops to the people of Hinoe Island, right before a nighttime shift of demon hunting. What a darling!
If you’d like a Princess Sakuna figurine of your own, then be sure to pre-order her over at the official Good Smile Company website or your respective retailer. The figure retails for ¥3,900, (or roughly $38) not including shipping and handling. Pre-orders will close on August 26, with the figurine expected to ship at some point in November 2021. Back in the digital world, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is available now on PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
