The winter 2018 anime series Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card is one that made a lot of people happy to experience that world again. We learned earlier this fall that it looks like the manga that it came from is getting ready to end. Beginning in 2016, the Clear Card manga extended things when it announced previously that it was getting closer to its end. Now, the final chapter has been set for a December 1st, 2023 release and the sixteenth and final volume will arrive on April 1st, 2024. The fifteenth volume is set for a November 13th, 2023 release.
This series has Morio Asaka directing it at Madhouse with Nanase Ohkawa handling the series composition and working on the scripts. Kunihiko Hamada is on board for the character designs while Mokona is handling the costume and card design for it.
The Japanese cast includes Sakura Tange as Sakura Kinomoto, Aya Hisakawa as Keroberos, Junko Iwao as Tomoyo Daidōji, Motoko Kumai as Syaoran Li, Megumi Ogata as Yukito Tsukishiro, Tomokazu Seki as Tōya Kinomoto, Nozomu Sasaki as Eriol Hiragizawa, Emi Shinohara as Kaho Mizuki, Yumi Touma as Spinel Sun, Ryoka Yuzuki as Nakuru Akizuki/Ruby Moon, and Katsuyuki Konishi as Terada-sensei.
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.
Plot Concept: Fourteen-year-old Sakura starts junior high school along with her friends, including Syaoran, who had just returned to Tomoeda. After having a dream with a mysterious cloaked figure, all of Sakura’s cards turn blank and are rendered powerless, thus she starts her quest to find out what is wrong. In doing so, Sakura and her allies discover and capture new transparent cards using a new key.
