To celebrate Sailor Moon’s 20th anniversary Groove started a collaboration of dolls based on characters from the series. Princess Kakyu (alternatively called Princess Kakyuu or Fireball depending which version you are reading/watching) was a short lived yet pivotal character during the Sailor Moon Sailor Stars arc. The ruler of the planet Kinmoku (same planet as the Starlights), she escaped to Earth before it was destroyed they come to Earth searching for her hoping that their song will reach her. She spends most of the Sailor Stars arc hidden in an incense burner before revealing herself, she is searching for the Light of Hope she realizes too late that it was Chibichibi.
