Masaki Amamiya (雨宮 真嬉, Amamiya Masaki) is the great-grandfather of Sakura Kinomoto on her mother's side. Initially objecting to Nadeshiko's marriage to Fujitaka Kinomoto, he became more accepting upon meeting Sakura and later receiving a gift from her as a form of peace between family members.

Appearance[]

Masaki is a tall, elderly European-looking man with greying-brown hair, a broad powerful chest, and a neatly-trimmed silver beard. He mostly wears European-style high-society formal clothes.

Personality[]

He is shown to be very rich, owning a Western-styled grand summer house in the countryside near Tomoeda which has tennis courts and a large garden. He is shown to be a reserved but kindly man, although out of loneliness and stubbornness, he refused to support Nadeshiko's relationship and eventually regretted not supporting her choices in life.

History[]

Masaki is the grandfather of Nadeshiko and Sonomi Daidouji and cherished his two granddaughters during their childhood, although Nadeshiko appeared to be his favorite.

However, when Fujitaka proposed to Nadeshiko when she was still sixteen and a school student, Masaki was very much against the marriage, as was Sonomi. Nadeshiko loved Fujitaka and married him, eventually giving birth to Touya and Sakura Kinomoto, whilst Sonomi eventually gave birth to her own daughter Tomoyo Daidouji. However, Nadeshiko fell ill in her 20's and died.

As a result, Masaki was aggrieved by her death and did not see Fujitaka or Nadeshiko's children after her death.

Fujitaka did not visit Masaki under the belief he was not welcome. Masaki kept in close contact with Sonomi, although it is unknown if he had met Tomoyo or not.

Plot[]

Clow Card Arc[]

Masaki eventually meets Sakura for the first time when the Kinomotos and Yukito Tsukishiro stay at a holiday house near his summer home. Sonomi informs him of Sakura's presence, and he spots her when she becomes curious about his house.

He invited Sakura over repeatedly during her stay without revealing to her that he was her great-grandfather but cryptically hinted that his granddaughter was Nadeshiko, allowing Sakura to try on her mother's childhood dresses.

He revealed that he missed Nadeshiko tremendously and loved it when rainbows would appear outside his house on a rainy and sunny day.

Sakura leaves but upon going to a secret hiding place with Kero for backup, summons The Rain card which she orders to create a rainbow for Masaki. Masaki witnesses the rainbow while remembering Nadeshiko in her childhood telling him about the rainbow. Sonomi, who had been secretly helping Masaki, watches the rainbow as well, both coming to accept that Fujitaka was the one Nadeshiko chose.

A year later, Fujitaka finds an old calendar that Nadeshiko had made and gives it to Sakura. Sakura finds Masaki's birthday on the calendar, which leads Fujitaka to explain the hostility between him and Masaki. While Sakura initially shows anger towards Masaki for acting in such a way, upon realizing that his birthday is soon, she decides to end the family feud once and for all by giving him a gift for his birthday. She makes a wallet for him and convinces Touya to play an organ recital that their mother had taught him in the past. Fujitaka passes these gifts on to Sonomi to give to Masaki.

The next day, Fujitaka receives a telephone call from Sonomi, who reveals Masaki wishes to speak in person with Fujitaka. Fujitaka finds Masaki in Penguin Park, revealing that the two had not seen each other since the day Nadeshiko mailed Masaki an invitation to her wedding. Masaki reveals that he has gifts for Sakura and Touya and suddenly breaks down in tears, apologizing for the way he treated Fujitaka, admitting that he was stubborn to not support Nadeshiko's happiness. Fujitaka also apologizes for his own troubles, and the two make peace with one another.

Sakura discovers the present Masaki left her was the dress she wore at his summer house, although she does not seem to realize who he actually is despite Kero pointing out its origins.

Cardcaptors[]

Masaki was portrayed instead as the father of Nadeshiko/Natasha, making him the grandfather of Sakura instead of her great-grandfather. In the episode, Sakura knew who he was and they spent a good time together, playing tennis, having tea, Sakura giving him cookies and Masaki giving Sakura the dress her mother wore. Just before leaving, Sakura used the Rain card to make a rainbow for Masaki, prompting him to remember when Natasha had first pointed out a rainbow to him.

Etymology[]

  • His given name Masaki (真嬉) means "true amusement."
  • His surname Amamiya (雨宮) means "rain shrine."

Trivia[]

  • Masaki knows Sakura, but she doesn't know him. Sakura makes him a rainbow with The Rain card, in the manga with Watery card. Sonomi gives him the White Day present Sakura made for him (Chocolate, a letter, and Nadeshiko flowers).
  • Masaki's favorite flowers were carnation blossoms and cherry blossoms, after which his granddaughter and great-granddaughter were named respectively:
