NHK’s hotsite for Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ announced yesterday the first character designs of Yuna D. Kaito, Akiho Shinomoto and Momo for the upcoming TV Anime adaptation.
In addition, the voice actors who will play Akiho and Kaito have been announced!
- Akiho Shinomoto: Minori Suzuki.
- Yuna D. Kaito: Natsuki Hanae.
Momo’s voice actor hasn’t been announced yet.
Minori Suzuki seems to be a somewhat newcomer, but Natsuki Hanae has a long list of works, some of them very big! Either way, I’ve listened to a few samples of their voices and I think they both fit perfectly!
In her official twitter account, Minori Suzuki wrote that working on an anime by CLAMP was a dream of hers. Surely she will work with all her heart, then!

Mimori Suzuki is known for being chosen as the Macross Δ heroine under the new Macross songstress audition.
I’ve seen that! 🙂 but I guess she’s still pretty much unknown outside the Macross fandom.
If there was any doubt left that Momo was more than a plushie, now they are about all gone. Xiaolang doesn’t have a second name in bold for his bear, while Yukito has for Yue. Plus just the fact that they bothered to do it under 4 different angles, it’s more than some simple accessory. xD
Like you said: “Momo’s voice actor hasn’t been announced yet”, but it’s now sure to come.
Well, you’ve seen the newest chapter by now, so xD
hmm which hair colour is better for akiho? manga blonde version or the anime mousy brown version … (same as sakura’s mum too!) i like both really… but i think the blonde suits her a little more… was there a blonde character in the anime? i cant remember…
I guess with all the extra haze in the anime, her hair won’t be looking too dark xD It looks fine to me on these setteis!
