Card Captor Sakura Clear Card arc vol. 9 will be released on October 13.

As usual, a regular and a special edition will be released simultaneously.

This time, the special edition will come with a “luxurious coffret-style” stationery set.

The 3-pieces set will include:

1) A 2-way can case featuring Sakura, Kero and Suppi. The case will be double-sided printing, so you can flip it over and use whichever side you prefer.

2) 30 sheets of “make-palette style” sticker that can be stored in the above can case. There will be 4 different patterns: “Sakura-chan’s cheek”, “Kero-chan’s eye shadow”, “Dream key eye shadow” and “Brush”.

3) A Sakura glitter lip pen.

The items will be designed with new illustrations drawn by CLAMP. Kodansha recommends the set for those of age 15 and up.

The special edition will cost 2480 yens.

Finally we have news for volume 9! Usually It would come out in September but most likely due to the delays in the serialization caused by COVID-19, they had to push it back a little, but only by a month, thankfully!

The special edition is… interesting. Interesting because I think this is the first time we have CLAMP and Kodansha stating, through the bonus material of the special edition, that Clear Card is targeted at those of age 15 and up. The kids have grown, officially.

I was a little confused translating this as this seems to be a make-up set that resembles a stationery set. Apparently that’s a thing in Japan?
