Cardcaptor Sakura 2016 Update: Get Ready for a New Series!

By on

Cardcaptor Sakura anime news just keeps on getting nicer for all the avid fans of this magical girl. One of the latest news we’ve heard is that the Clamp team is coming up with a new series, which could be a television series, that is inspired by the Cardcaptor Sakura manga.

As part of the celebration of the original manga?s 20th anniversary in 2016, Clamp also recently launched a new Cardcaptor Sakura sequel manga series in the Kodansha’s Nakayoshi magazine?s July issue.? It follows the life of the titular character Sakura as she graduates from Tomoeda Elementary School. Sakura had a dream and an incident happens after that.

This marked the successful return of Sakura to the pages of monthly girls? manga anthology Nakayoshi with the start of the story?s ?Clear Card Arc.?? Her friends Tomoyo and Syaoran also join the series. All of them are currently junior high school students.

As for the Cardcaptor Sakura anime project that is already on its way, no further details have been released about it yet, but it was stated that new information will be revealed as soon as possible.

Speculations claim that this highly-anticipated project could be most likely a television series which is ideal with the current state of the anime industry. The direct-to-video anime division has nearly completely dried. Moreover, producers may think that a theatrical feature for Sakura?s first animated outing is too ambitious thus the possibility of having one is impossible at this moment.

Several fans have enjoyed the original Cardcaptor Sakura magical girl manga series from May 1996 to June 2000. It ran in Nakayoshi. It was recorded that twelve volumes of the manga was published by Kodansha from November 1996 to July 2000. The manga series has sold more than 12 million copies.

The series were released in English in two editions. The Dark Horse Comics later launched the series in compilation format and a film, Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie premiered in Japan in 1999.
