Welcome to Sakura Land! :) I'm Sakura Tachibana, the creator. (of course.) It's a pen name. Anyway, here you can find a blog that gives you a tiny peek into my weird and wonderful world. Enjoy! :)


  • I have started a Madoka Magica doujinshi called Zaubermädchen Anna Magica. (Anna Magica 4 short, ZAM 4 shortest.) If u want 2 check out v story so far, feel free. Whaddaya think of it? Please let me know. (I'll give u v link when I find out how.)
  • I have also started putting up pages from my old school sketchbook if any of u r interested. Seeing how I used 2 draw could b interesting. Search 4 "Sakura's Art Book."
  • Oh, and readers of earlier posts may know that I found out how 2 make a Pactio Card from Negima. (basically, a card that reveals magical details about a person) Well, I should've told u way earlier, but 4 some reason v picture wasn't loading on v software, so it's back 2 v drawing board 4 a while.
  • Crimson-Rose asked me why I had v letter v all over my posts. If u c a v on its own, it will often b a substitute 4 "the". Just say what u c.

So summer's finally here...

Hello again peeps. Am currently typing this (again) as a free person. Well, I've got lots of Suka Cards 2 make 4 my friends and ZAM is waiting 4 another page, but wtf. That's right, we broke up 4 v summer yesterday. (I'm pretty sure some of u will be like "WTF? U've JUST BROKEN UP??!" or "Ha ha! We get longer summer hols than u! ;D" right now.) Yup, we get 6 weeks of summer hols and come back on v 5th of September. But if u think that's bad, my little sister, who goes 2 junior school, breaks up on Tuesday. In2 a million tiny pieces. (da-dum psssssssssssh!) Sorry about that. We had a Sports Day on v last day of term. It's a mixed blessing, according 2 v librarian, and I think she's right. Some of us skived our events and our form came last in v year.
(;-;)But still, it was a pretty fun day. We did a lot of hanging out with friends, I finished v traditional part of Angel's (not her real name, but she is one) Suka Card and drove some girls a bit crazy with my Italy impressions, I think. (i.e. PASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
The last day of term feels very surreal, doesn't it? U look forward 2 it a bit & then when it's finally here, it doesn't seem real. I'm gonna miss Year 9. It was a fun year. I know we'll be higher up the respect ladder in Year 10, but I think we have 2 do stuff that counts 2wards our GCSE grades. Yikes. >^<
Meanwhile, in v 6 weeks of freedom, I'm going a summer camp next week with my brother, (remind me 2 let u know when I go, I don't think v place will have access 2 a computer) and our family r going 2 v Canary Islands (Fuerteventura) 4 a week. Sounds like fun. And I also hope 2 get a Girl Talk Art magazine or 2. And 2day, we're going 2 a family gathering 2 meet up with Mum's side of v family.
On another note, I've decided 2 pinch a meme off XxArrancarFanxX. What anime/ manga character do I remind u of and why? (This could fail miserably due 2 my lack of subscribers, but oh well.)
Oh, and 4 those of u who haven't heard of Negima!?, this is a Suka Card. Obviously my home-made ones were in English.

Until next time,

I Pinched off Alchemic Mushroom who pinched it off TrueStory. Soz. ^w^

FACTS: 1. Real name: Nice try. That's stills a secret as I don't know if it counts as "personal details". ^w^ 2. Nickname: Miss Bird, (I wanted 2 b called that when I was about 3 4 some reason. #WTF?!) cupcake, beefcake, X-money.(by ...

I feel like I should post something


Just watched Episode 22 of Hetalia & was pretty surprised. U know, that scene where Chibitalia and the Holy Roman Empire kiss? Like, WTF? I thought there was a law against manga containing the sexualisation of children. I know it was probably a friendship thing, but still, I suppose I'm not used 2 gay kisses yet. It's interesting how u can highlight spoilers and the words appear. I discovered that when reading a post from DemonsandAngels.
Speaking of which, an idea for a Hetalia doujinshi has been brewing in my mind for a short while now. (probably because it's something I can channel my hormonal weirdness into.) It tells the story of WW2, starring Hetalia's crazy characters. Also, symbolism plays a bigger part, for example if a character gets a headache, there is something wrong with the people running the country (dispute or physical health-wise, I think, or Germany would have a 12-year long headache. That doesn't sound like fun.) and Germany gets bulimia. I should probably wait, what with ZAM on v go, but watch this space.
Also, it was my little brother's birthday on Wednesday, and v Kingdom Hearts game he got is really cool. (I've named my Dream Eaters Kitty, Flappy and Scamp.)
I can smell Mum's cooking. It smells tasty.
Until next time,

How 1 Person Can Make Your Heart Sing

Just got back from school. 2day was an interesting day. How was Independence Day? Would u like me 2 make a Happy 4th fan art? Ended up visiting theO yesterday, but wasn't sure what 2 do about the 4th as a Brit visiting theO @ that time could be like a German visiting on Remembrance/Holocaust Memorial Day, if u c what I mean.
Also, have started watching Negima online. Asuna sounds higher than I expected. Also saw OVA 1 (whatever that means) of Magical Star Kanon 100% a day or 2 ago. BTW, what's an OVA?
V creator has an Ume Aoki (character designer of Madoka Magica, I think.) -esque sense of style, i.e. TOTALLY CUTE & AWESOME! KYAAAAAAAAA!!!
It was pretty cool.
But, I'm posting mainly about v last lesson of v day, ICT. 4 our end of term project we had 2 do a PowerPoint on any topic we liked (provided it was appropriate, of course) and put stuff like hyperlinks & custom animation in it. Well, it so happened that I had an attack of presentation-maker's block. I eventually decided on Negima (yup, my desire 4 a Pactio, as well as my crush on a certain someone that A-san knows who, has gotten big enough 2 leak in2 other areas of my brain.) with help from friends and TA's. But what was really nice was that v person sitting next 2 me was doing Hetalia. I knew she was a fan of The Legend Of Zelda and Animal Crossing but I never knew she was an otaku. This led 2 me doing a couple of Italy impressions, including a rather loud, hammed up version of v "Please don't shoot me" bit (I was trying 2 capture Italy's distress. (^^') ) & "PASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!"
It's nice 2 know that you're not v only otaku in da house. Also, another girl was doing Studio Ghibli. (^-^)
Bye 4 now. Apparently it's time 4 tea.

Gundammit! I worked out how 2 make a Pactio!!! (^-^)

Hello everyone. Have a happy holiday Cardcaptor Ryoko. I live in England, but I don't think I'll c u. That might b a good thing. Have fun!
Anyway, I think I'll still have 2 do botched cards by hand, but I have some good news. (I think u can tell by v title.) I KNOW HOW 2 MAKE A PACTIO CARD!!! (^-^) ;-; Readers of my earlier posts will know that I want 2 stick up a Negima Pactio partner card on my intro 2 say some useless but interesting details about myself. There is a ginormous botched card up there instead @ v moment instead.
I obviously downloaded something that didn't require Photoshop 2 work, probably from yelsha42, bcoz I was looking through my downloads and there was an executable file called "Pactio maker 1.1" in it. After clicking on it a screen came up with Asuna's (pictureless) card on it. U click on certain objects or press v F buttons 2 change things.
I reckon I'll still have 2 do botched cards (Pactios gone wrong) by hand though.
If u want me 2 make u a Pactio, please let me know. I'll probably cre8 a questionnaire which will give me v details.
Obviously drunk on happiness, I asked my brother some weird-sounding questions like "Fave colour? Fave weapon? Which of these 7 words describes u best?" because his birthday was coming up. He asked 4 a Gundam-esque robosuit 2 b on his card. (Why do Gundams have 2 b so darn COMPLICATED?!) Nevertheless, am still slowly drawing probably my 1st mecha ever. I hope he likes it. Then in v evening, whilst my parents were @ a James Bond-themed dinner party, I asked my sister & v babysitter, (a friendly teenage neighbour) v same questions. Guess why. But I also have another problem. WHAT WEAPON SHOULD I WIELD? I'm not sure. Any suggestions?
Gonna finish off v pics 4 v Pactios now.
C u l8r!
P.S. Sorry if u r offended by v word "damn".
