The above image is the front of the fan. The back image is below.
This fan is absolutely beautiful in person. It is also fairly large, measuring 11.5″ in width and 16.5″ in height. There’s not much else to say about these, other than to just look and love the images on them. This particular fan is Sailor Stars based with the logo on front, and inclusion of a Sailor Stars anime drawing on front and back. The front image features Eternal Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars, Sailor Venus, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Jupiter to Moons left. On the right features the three Starlights, and Sailor Neptune and Uranus. The back features Princess Serentiy/Usagi nude with angelic type wings.
