This version has been remastered for 4K resolution.

Both boxes will be released on December 22. More info: http://ccsakura-official.com/anime/box.html

The illustration sure is pretty but somehow it isn’t what I expected from a box illustration. I guess I would prefer one that would wrap itself around the entire box. Still, pretty!

In a most likely last move, the third volume of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ dropped to the 41st position in Oricon’s weekly ranking, with an estimate of 13,645 copies sold in its fifth 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 317,284 copies overall, closely tying in with the fourth week sales for volume 2.

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.

Kodansha has recently announced that the Clear Card arc series has 1.5 copies in print.

The chart below shows the progress in the sales of Card Captor Sakura ~Clear Card arc~ over the weeks and compares it with previous volumes’ performances (click on it for dynamic version):This was probably the last week of volume 3 to appear in Oricon’s weekly ranking. The sales are looking consistent so far and it’s very likely that after the TV Anime starts they will go even higher.

Good run!

It’s only a little less than 14,000 copies behind volume 2 when comparing to the fourth week sales. Also, volume 2 never made it to the fifth week in the top 50 but it looks like volume 3 might be able to do it! We’ll see next week!

Well done so far, Sakura-chan!

Clear Card arc TV Anime: Yuna D. Kaito and Shinomoto Akiho character designs, voice actors annouced

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!
