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!

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!

The third volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 6th position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 89,155 copies sold in its second week of sales.

The above numbers are for the regular edition. The Special Edition (OAD) did not appear in this week’s top 50.

Combining the sales for both versions, Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ #3 sold an estimate of 245,134 copies overall! That is slightly better than the overall second week sales for volume 2, but slightly less than the overall second week sales for volume 1.

It is worth mentioning that Oricon only takes into account a certain number of shops. These numbers are only an estimate and it’s possible that the real figures are higher than these.

The first episode will air on January 7.

So, what did you all think? I’m not sure I like the CG work and all the rainbowness of it. And there is a bit of haze effect here and there too. Fingers crossed the rest will be good.
