Card Captor Sakura 25th Anniversary Special Site launched

The Card Captor Sakura official website has been renewed to accommodate the upcoming celebrations for the series’ 25th Anniversary.

The previous 20th Anniversary logo has been replaced by a new one for the 25th Anniversary — featuring a new illustration drawn by CLAMP — but other than that, the website looks the same as before.

In addition, a special website dedicated to the series’ 25th Anniversary was launched within the official website:

CLAMP have drawn a new illustration for the occasion (it’s the same illustration that is being used for the new logo) and it’s possible to see it in its entirely at this special website.

For the time being, this 25th Anniversary website only contains the special comic movie that was announced in this month’s Nakayoshi magazine and the first volume of a “Special Information” newspaper, which shows Card Captor Sakura news taken from this month’s Nakayoshi magazine. A new batch of goods is planned but hasn’t been announced yet.

The “special comic movie” is a 1:43 minutes long short video that does a quick recap of the series:


Somehow I knew this “comic movie” would not be anything big, but I was expecting something else (like some voice over from the voice actors).

At least we got ourselves a gorgeous new illustration by CLAMP! Let’s see what the new goods will look like =)

The June issue of Nakayoshi magazine is a special issue celebrating the 25th Anniversary since the beginning of Card Captor Sakura‘s serialization.

Among the things that make this issue so special: a) Card Captor Sakura is featured on the front cover; b) Chapter 53 of Clear Card arc is published in this issue; c) a special article dedicated to the series’ 25th Anniversary is included; and d) this issue also has two special extras related to the series: a notebook and an exclusive SMILE clear card, illustrated by CLAMP.

In addition, the magazine will be announcing three pieces of news:

  1. The official website of Card Captor Sakura will be renewed for the occasion of the 25th Anniversary.
  2. A new batch of goods will be released.
  3. A commemorative 25th Anniversary “Special Comic Movie” is being made.

No more information about this “comic movie” has been given but I am assuming that it will look similarly to that Holitsuba short animation that was dubbed live in CLAMP FESTIVAL 2011. Given that it’s a special comic movie about the series’ 25th Anniversary, it might use the manga as source material so we may not see that many new illustrations (yet to be seen, though!).

The June issue of Nakayoshi magazine goes on sale officially on May 1st.

Thank you seichan02 for this scoop!

The official website will probably be updated on the same date as Nakayoshi magazine goes on sale (May 1st) so please check back the website on that date.

It’s the end of the 20th Anniversary era but buckle up, the 25th Anniversary era is about to start!
