rather rare 2002 TAKARA made Sakura Shinguji character doll
from the SEGA Visual Novel/Dating Sim/FRONT MISSION-style Strategy hybrid game series "Sakura Wars"
a nearly Japan-exclusive game series that began life on the SEGA SATURN platform back in 1996.

i found her for relatively cheap, -so far as this sort of Anime merchandise goes- around $55shipped.
MANDARAKE has been a serious boon for me on this, as of late.

she got a sorely-needed doll body upgrade, from her stock TAKARA "Jenny" BARBIE-type body,
to the highly poseable, generally flattering-looking OBITSU brand aftermarket doll body. also, some enhanced lip detailing;

that is really cute. I wish I could have watched Sakura Wars but I've not been able too and may in the future.

the T.V. series isn't half bad, so far. the SENTAI FILMWORKS complete collection i have is a reissue of the old ADV U.S. release,
and it looks, to my eye, like an LD-to-DVD transfer...

I've been meaning to direct compare some of those Sentai releases to the older ones. But I've had a hell of a time trying to buy ANYDVD which is the software I'd want for the job. Visa has been blocking them...so I applied for a MC and have been waiting for a reply...

I thought AnyDVD is now defunct as in unable to buy the program from the site since the movie companies won by either court and or pressure to close it down like they do on other sites and the Kaleidoscope device that ripped movies to a hard drive for home theatre purposes.

Nope, that software is still alive and gets regular updates.
Did not know that you cannot use your CC to pay for it.
Because I see both VISA and MC logos on their check-out page.
I am not in the US though.

Correct, ownership changed hands.

Visa is giving me lots of crap and I checked and I am not alone in that regard. Hopefully MC does the trick. I really don't want to buy bitcoin.

Last Version SlySoft released was 7.6.9.5
Latest version from Redfox is 8.3.3.0
The change from SlySoft to RedFox happened on March, 1 2016. That was almost three years ago.
I have a strong suspicion that customers from the U.S. cannot pay with CC for the software at all.
The U.S. is a strong fighter for copyright laws worldwide. You might even get into trouble for trying to
purchase that software as a U.S. citizen. Better try it anonymous with BTC or use a "free" version.
If you know what I mean with "free" that is... :)

You might be right about that, but I'll try one last time. Bitcoin is regulated now fwiw.

just finished my SENTAI FILMWORKS DVD reissue of Sakura Wars T.V. too bad it so often tends towards being rather wonky and uneven.

also, i could swear the writer(s) had a vendetta against Sakura.
she seems to get shafted in this series, every way to Sunday, by just about everyone and everything. i don't get it.

i mean, i realize a lot of people out there tend to harbor a strong general distaste for Good Girl "Waifu" Anime characters,
-even in Japan at times, it would seem- but this is indeed ridiculous, guys. let Sakura alone for half a moment, already.

anyhow, SW T.V. was underwhelming/disappointing. in other news, Sakura came, and her head mates pretty seamlessly to an "N" (Natural) skin OBITSU BODY.

got plenty of work yet, between brushing Sakura's hair into shape, and altering the fit of her costume (modeled by a fellow Kosuke Fujishima Alumnus)
for the OBITSU doll body;

yep. the original TAKARA body is significantly shorter, and no better articulated than that of the average BARBIE, which is to say, barely jointed at all...
