On its first week of release, Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen #3 debuted at the 11th position in Oricon’s weekly comic ranking, with 73.836 copies sold.

These numbers are slighly better than the numbers for volume 2 (55.809) on its first week, but we have to take into consideration the fact that the numbers for volume 2 stand for only 3 days of sales whereas volume 3 stand for 5 days.

Also, these numbers are only for the regular edition. Numbers for the PLAYBUTTON limited edition are unknown, however, they must be lower than 32.600 copies since it didn’t appear in the top 30 ranking.

For comparison’s sake, volume 1 sold 127.643 copies after 6 days of sales and volume 2 sold 55.809 after 3 days.

In case Tsubasa shows up again next week in Oricon’s ranking, I’ll post here about its performance.

“Tsubasa” Special Chapter to be published in Weekly Shonen Magazine (Updated)

To celebrate the release of volume 3 of Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE –, there will be a special chapter of Tsubasa in the upcoming double issue 37 & 38 of Weekly Shonen Magazine, out on August 10.

In a similar fashion, a special chapter was published in Weekly Shonen Magazine to promote the release of volume 1. That special chapter would be later adapted into the PLAYBUTTON audio drama that comes with the limited edition of volume 3.

Update: According to CLAMP-NET.COM, the special chapter will be entitled Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Kinugawa Onsen Hen, which means it will be based on a recent trip CLAMP did to Kinugawa Onsen. This contradicts what they said on their radio show when asked if the Tsubasa gang would be landing in a Kinugawa Onsen-like world and they replied that the trip was not for Tsubasa, but for a different work. Unless that question gave them an extra idea?

On another note, according to AnimeNewsNetwork, the magazine where Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – ran in, Shonen Magazine SPECIAL, is ceasing publication in January 2017. This means that whenever Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – returns, it will most likely run in a different magazine. Kodansha has another monthly shonen magazine, Monthly Shonen Magazine, where it could be serialized in.

Card Captor Sakura 20th Anniversary Memorial Box announced

As part of the celebrations for the 20th Anniversary of Card Captor Sakura, Kodansha is releasing a memorial box on October 3 for 3600 yens.

Card Captor Sakura 20th Anniversary Memorial Box – contents:

  • 1/1 scale Kero plush toy.
  • Calendar, featuring 5 illustrations printed properly for the first time.
  • 16-pages booklet with an extra comic of Sakura and Touya’s childhood memories.

I’m assuming the 5 illustrations from the calendar are textless versions of the ones released so far for the Clear Card arc. Also, I’m not sure if the extra comic will be newly drawn by CLAMP or if it’s gonna be a reprint of the short stories that were published in the first Card Captor Sakura artbooks — the one that Sakura gets sick and Touya takes care of her.

I’m assuming the new illustration we see on the Nakayoshi advertisement aside must be from the box packaging.

Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai hen vol. 3 cover

The cover of “Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai-hen vol. 3 is here!

The strange thing is that it hasn’t been announced a special cover for the PLAYBUTTON limited edition, not even at Kodansha’s site. So either there won’t be a special case drawn by CLAMP to hold the PLAYBUTTON (like they did with XXXHOLiC Rei #3), or it’ll be later announced. But CLAMP-NET.COM didn’t announce anything about it so it looks like we won’t have one.

Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – Nirai Kanai-hen vol. 3 will be released on August 17! (although Kodansha lists it for August 12…)

I was expecting Sakura to be on the final cover… I guess CLAMP are really trying to say that Syaoran and Sakura are apart.

You can pre-order both the regular and PLAYBUTTON limited edition at CD Japan.
