2 min read

Cardcaptor Sakura Japanese Blu-ray Box SetFans of the very popular Cardcaptor Sakura property have a lot to be interested in today as the Nakayoshi magazine has revealed that a new sequel series is kicking off in it come June 3rd, 2016 with the July issue. The new series, which doesn’t look like it’s named yet, will focus on the character of Sakura once again but as she graduates to junior high school. A new mysterious dream is upon her and her life is about to be shaken up again. CLAMP has a habit of coming back to their properties from time to time and Sakura is a character that has generated more interest than most others, hence her being a key part of the Tsubasa series.

The original series from CLAMP came out twenty years ago and had a popular anime series, first released by Geneon here and then recently by NIS America, as well as two theatrical features that were picked up by Discotek Media. The manga itself ran from 1996 to 2000 with twelve million copies sold. TOKYOPOP brought the series out originally and Dark Horse Comics picked it up in omnibus form for a more recent and cleaned up release.

Original concept: One day, Sakura Kinomoto accidentally opened a book containing dozens of magical cards called Clow Cards, and they scattered around her hometown of Tomoeda. Sakura was chosen to be the master of these cards and has been enlisted by the sun-based guardian Kerberos to use her magic and reclaim these cards before they make any more trouble in town. She is encouraged by her best friend Tomoyo Daidouji, and she meets a rival cardcaptor, Syaoran Li, who is a direct descendant of the creator of the Clow Cards.
