New Code Geass project in the works

From AnimeNewsNetwork:

Sunrise announced at the Code Geass 10th Anniversary event on Sunday that the franchise is getting its “next project,” as well as a three-part compilation anime film series. Below is the visual announcing the next project:

The next project is titled Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection), but the announcement did not reveal the format of the project.

The three-part film series will recap all 50 episodes of the original Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion series and the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 sequel series. The cast are re-recording all their lines for the films, and the films will include new scenes. The first film will open in 2017.

Looking forward to the new CLAMP art for this and hopefully a second artbook will finally be released.

2017 is looking good for us CLAMPers. We deserve it after the long draught we’ve been through for the past few years.

The design is the same as the original series. I just don’t understand the green choice here. I feel like some other color would have been a better choice for this cover.

It goes on sale on December 2 along with a special limited edition that comes with a mangaka set. Here is a preview of its contents:

Where to buy:

Regular Edition: CD Japan | Amazon Japan
Special Edition: CD Japan | Amazon Japan

And by the way, it seems that Kodansha is releasing a Card Captor Sakura Popular Book Set with 4 books of limited release together in one batch. This is your chance to get them all in case you still don’t have them. Release is scheduled for mid-December and CD Japan has it for pre-order.

Update: Higher resolution pictures added.

BREAKING: Card Captor Sakura Clear Card arc TV Anime in January 2018, same staff and cast

ccs_new_anime_announcementThe upcoming January issue of Nakayoshi magazine will announce that the “new anime project” for Card Captor Sakura is a new TV Series of Clear Card arc to be premiered in January 2018 with similar cast and staff as the original Anime!

The TV Series will be produced by Madhouse and directed by Morio Asaka — same animation studio and director as the original anime! No word yet on whether CLAMP’s Nanase Ohkawa will be writing scripts for it, but let’s hope so!

Moreover, the cast for Sakura, Kero, Tomoyo, Syaoran, Yukito and Touya is the same as the original TV Anime as well!

The TV Series is to be aired on NHK channel.

This is fantastic news! Having Madhouse, Morio Asaka and the original cast on board is practically more than half a formula we need for a successful adaptation. January 2018 gives plenty of time for more manga material to be released (2 or 3 volumes at least).

I only hope now that Ohkawa will join the staff to make this perfect.

This is a day to celebrate, a new era is upon us!

Amazon Japan:

Syaoran and Sakura look particularly young! I guess it must be hard for Mokona to switch styles ^^” And I was certainly not expecting an Alice in Wonderland theme for the mini-artbook cover. Mokona is the Queen of Hearts =)

I’m looking forward to these!

CLAMP will be in charge of the character design concept for the TV Anime adaptation of Yuuri Eda’s light novel series Kabukibu!

The series revolves around Kurogo Kurusu, a high school student who loves kabuki so much that it’s annoying. Kurogo yearns to perform kabuki as part of a club at his school, but currently his school doesn’t have a kabuki club. So Kurogo sets out to create a kabuki club, and his first order of business is to gather members. (ANN)

The series is published by Kadokawa and the 5th volume will be released on November 25.

The TV Anime series will be animated by Studio Deen and is scheduled to start broadcast on TBS in April 2017.

A clean, text-less version of the key visual by CLAMP can be seen here.

It looks so nice! I hope the anime will follow the color scheme of that promotional image — althought that looks more manga-ish than anime.

Looking forward to new CLAMP art for this!
