Pre-orders for the Cardcaptor Sakura Card Case are Now Open
Tokyo Otaku Mode Inc. (incorporated in Delaware, U.S.; representative: Tomohide Kamei; CEO: Naomitsu Kodaka; herein referred to as TOM) has announced pre-orders for a duralumin card case based on motifs from the currently airing popular anime Cardcaptor Sakura.
The card case features designs based on the Sealing Wand and magical circle that appear in the anime.
The card case is produced by GILD Design, a company that has manufactured many duralumin products. GILD Design produces high-quality products due to the level of care taken throughout the creation process, from the raw materials to the decision to make every part of the product within Japan.
This is an item with a simple yet refined design, durability that comes from using duralumin, and the smooth sliding action that comes from being handmade by an artisan. The bearings, each of which is smaller than a grain of rice, allow for easy opening and closing. This card case is designed to be extremely easy to use.
Duralumin has a tough and hard image, but this card case is colored with bright, pastel colors. It is made so that the motifs that fans love can easily be seen in one's daily life. This design was made with the intent to create a card case that can be used in any situation, such as business situations or even fan events. This is an item for Sakura fans, old and new alike, to be able to carry around wherever they go.
