The Spring Superdrop 2024 is a superdrop in the Secret Lair product range and a continuation of the alternate art Secret Lair Drop Series. It became available for purchase from the Wizards of the Coast webshop secretlair.wizards.com on May 13, 2024.[2]

Description[ | ]

This superdrop features a Universes Beyond drop centered on the Japanese vocaloid Hatsune Miku, a 16-year-old anime character with long, turquoise twin-tails.[3] Miku's personification has been marketed as a virtual idol, and has performed at live virtual concerts onstage as an animated projection (rear-cast projection on a specially coated glass screen). Miku previously starred in a special Japanese trailer for Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty.[4] The name of the drop "Sakura Superstar" references the Japanese spring flower, the cherry blossom. This the first of four drops featuring Hatsune Miku, each celebrating a separate season and appearing in future Secret Lair superdrops across 2024. All Hatsune Miku drops will be available in both English and Japanese languages.[3] Three drops supplement the April, 2024 release of Outlaws of Thunder Junction. There is also a belated April Fools drop.

For every $200 spent in a single order, you get a borderless Secret Lair Promo, Seedborn Muse with art by Princes Hidir.[2]

The Sakura drops (both English and Japanese, foil and non-foil) sold out in one day, as did several bundles.
