The 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!
