Australian anime fans have a treat coming their way soon as AnimeLab announced at the Supanova event in Perth that they’ll be bringing out the Cardcaptor Sakura series for audiences there in the near future. No details were provided about the simulcast and the layout of it, whether it’ll be doled out in pieces or one big chunk, but the expansive show from the CLAMP creators will be there before we know it.
The series was originally released in North America by Geneon Entertainment, but it recently got a massive Blu-ray limited edition box set from NIS America. you can check out our review on that wonderful series here.
Plot concept: Curiosity is part of any 10-year old’s life, but Sakura just broke the seal on a magical book and released all of the mischievous spirits imprisoned on the cards inside! Kero, the “Guardian of the Clow Cards” is horrified to find all of the cards gone and tells Sakura she must become the “Cardcaptor” and retrieve the spirits before they work their mischief in the world.
