The new Cardcaptor Sakura manga which was first released on the 3rd of June, 2016 in Nakayoshi magazine and dubbed as the “Clear Card Arc” kicks off with Kinomoto Sakura starting her day as a 1st year junior high student. She then meets Syaoran and learns that she could be with him longer in Japan. Other Cardcaptor Sakura characters like Eriol, Kaho Mizuki, Touya, and Yukito also made an appearance in the first chapter of the manga.
Aside from the manga, it was also announced on the same day the manga was released that there is going to be a new anime in the works! That’s a double treat for hardcore Cardcaptor Sakura fans!
Cardcaptor Sakura is a shoujo manga series that was first released in 1996 and ended in the year 2000 by the manga group CLAMP. CLAMP is also responsible for the mangas xxxHolic, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, CLAMP School Detective, Angelic Layer, etc. Cardcaptor Sakura was originally serialized in Nakayoshi magazine and was later published as 12 volumes by Kodansha from November 1996 until July 2000. A Cardcaptor Sakura anime was produced in April 1998 until March 2000, having 70 complete episodes. Two anime films were also released in 1999 and in 2000.
I am very much excited with how CLAMP will surprise us in the new Cardcaptor Sakura anime and manga! I first watched the anime when I was 11 years old, and only read the manga later on and found out how powerful the message of love Cardcaptor Sakura has. I learned that there is no boundary when it comes to love. You could love anybody.
