About Utaha Kasumigaoka The Most Beautiful Heroines Saekano Ukiyo-e Woodblock Print (Import)

The third installment of the ukiyo-e woodblock prints for Saekano, this time featuring the character Utaha Kasumigaoka. Collect all 3 prints to form a panorama with the three heroines of the series.

This Woodblock print features the character Utaha Kasumigaoka from the popular anime series "Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend" and comes with a designated original frame, certificate, and an explanatory booklet.*Does not include actual woodblock seen in video.

The Original Illustration of Utaha Kasumigaoka was made by Kurehito Misaki, under the concept of "Oiran" (Old Japanese highest-ranked courtesans) and brought to life as an ukiyo-e woodblock print by master craftsman Kazuo Watanabe. Utaha's intricate kimono design was made possible with the use of 17 base woodblocks carved by Mr. Watanabe and colored 78 times by master printer Hideo Yoshida. This is a gem that represents the achievements of craftsmanship unique to ukiyo-e woodblock printing.

The "Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend" ukiyo-e series "The Most Beautiful Heroines" is the world's first collaborative ukiyo-e to incorporate the technique of "continued painting," through which all three pieces can be connected to form a larger picture. One can either enjoy each individual piece or lay out all three prints of the series together for a powerful and overwhelmingly beautiful panorama display.

Woodblock (unframed) measures approx 8.94" W x 14.17" H and is made of washi*, wooden plywood, and paper. Please make sure to store in a cool and airy place and to also avoid direct sunlight.

*Washi is Echizen Kizuki Bousho, the finest traditional Japanese paper made by a living national treasure, Ichibei Iwano Echizen.

Product Made in Japan. The images provided may differ slightly from the actual product.
