Kanata was released as part of the Tenshi no Sumika Standard Fair (21st~22nd September, 2009). He was added to the Tenshi no Sato FCS on March 14th, 2011 and to the Tenshi no Sumika FCS on September 24th, 2011.
- Face-up artist(s):
- Date of acquisition:
- October 7, 2009
- Purchased at the Studio Alta Volks Sumika in Tokyo.
- Reason for choice:
- idrisfynn and I planned to have SD boy twins but couldn't decide on a sculpt we both liked equally well. After we accepted that the boys could be non-identical, she went with Michele and I chose Kanata. I liked his mischievous expression.
- Best Points:
- The smirk.
- Worst Points:
- I would have preferred a jointed torso. And his head is strangely narrow and small for a Volks doll so wigs always eat his face or look too puffy.
I decided to buy him in person while I was in Japan in October of 2009 and went to every Sumika in Tokyo (there were quite a few more back then) only to discover each time that he was sold out. My last stop was Studio Alta, where they had one on display and one in a box. They let me examine the face-ups of each and select the one I preferred. I bought him some glass eyes and an outfit while I was there and put him together in my hotel room so he wouldn't arrive at Tenshi no Sato in his underwear the next day. I had to leave his box behind in the hotel when we moved on to Kyoto since it wasn't the kind that folded flat and I just couldn't carry anything else.
- Head Sculpt:
- pureskin normal
- Volks SD
