A hotsite to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Card Captor Sakura has opened today: http://ccsakura-official.com/
The site lists all the information related to the anniversary and its related projects like the artbook, the Animate cafe, the TV Anime rebroadcast, among others.
Perhaps the newest information is regarding a set of stamps that will be released on April 1st (Sakura’s birthday) and can be purchased via Japan’s post website — I am not sure if it’ll also be available in physical post offices. The stamps were based off a new illustration drawn by CLAMP.
A set of a clearfile (A4 size) featuring the same newly drawn illustration and the “sticker and letter set” that originally came as a Nakayoshi appendix back when Card Captor Sakura was being published will be on sale on the same day.
Lastly, more details about the new Card Captor Sakura short manga/one-shot will be announced in the May issue of Nakayoshi magazine (out on April 3rd).
The new illustration looks so great! Are we in 2000?
OMG!! IS THIS REAL WORLD?
Japan Post doesn’t ship overseas, d’aaaw. The prospects for a new illustration book are looking better than ever if we’re getting new artwork left and right like this, though! I think this illustration is the first color spread drawn for CCS in something like 16 years. (I really, really hope we get something with Clow and Sakura together before the year goes out, but…)
Is this the first CLAMP series to receive so much attention on its anniversary? The fact that the national post office of all things is signing off on the commemorations really drives home how beloved CCS is.
-Frame stamp sheet (52 yen stamp x 5 sheets, 82 yen stamp x 5 sheets [seal type])
-A4 clear file folder
>>Price = 4200jpy (without tax)
I’m definitely looking forward to this, this is one real special merchandise for once! 🙂
The illustration is great, and this is only the 2d CCS artwork with all the major characters of the series in it, all together! So rare!

Btw, I purchased those (through a proxy), and on April 1st it was not released, but made available for pre-order: from the look of it, they are not sending this to their buyers until July.
