...will be going on hiatus after this week's chapter (which probably comes as a surprise to no CLAMP fan...at least Sailormoon has started.)

ETA: Tsubasa WoRLD CHRoNiCLE Nirai kanai-hen seems to be the official title of the new Tsubasa story.

Only a couple of days ago, I made a post about a new school uniform Sakura figure being released matching the Syaoran one (which was one of the awards of the June Lottery), but it seems like there were more! We also have an Alice Sakura and (yet another...) 1st OP. Sakura + 1 Kero.
Here goes pics of the other figures (4 types, 3 Sakura and 1 Kero), the charms (4 types, the 2 keys and 2 Kero) and the Kero plushies which will all be released between November 2014 and December 2014, all by banpresto, which were also the ones who released all the items of the June Lottery.

And the tweets about this:

EDIT (July 8th): here goes better picture of the 4 new figures to be released in November 2014, and also the 2 big Kero plushies [source: Animate]
[click to enlarge]

Here goes all the tweets about it, with links included in them for more information. Maaya Sakamoto will be singing some CCS once again! The price seems to be already fixed (3,240 yen) but the release date is not specified.

Here goes the 2nd Impact, uurrhh..., I mean 2nd mass release of CCS merchandise from Movic, (official release date is August 2014), it's really scary how everything went out of stock overnight (the preorders are dead...), literally, international fans like us don't even have the time to actually learn they are new goodies on sale, japanese fans took everything instantly!! ^^; This has officially turned into a merchandise war, in which only the first to strike get what they want...

To match the Syaoran figure released this month (award D of the Lottery), a Sakura one will be made available in November 2014, in the crane games you can find a bit everywhere in Japan~
How adorable is that?

Tsubasa Another Story has been confirmed by CLAMP-NET. This will begin in Shonen Magazine's Aug 20th issue.

As said in a previous post, the official day the Lottery was starting in Japan is on June 21th, today.

Both yahoo.jp auctions and Clamp tweeter account are flooded with all the items from the lottery, so you have plenty of pictures of pretty much every little thing~
Or without having to look around, all the items' pictures, in good quality, can be seen at natalie.mu
But I'm posting this one photo here because this is the first and only one I've seen, until now, of the illustration holder being open, and the message written by Clamp actually visible.

If someone can translate it, that would be great! :)

After all the goodies that have been released, I've started to think we were at the end, I mean, what was there left to make?
We already got mugs, can badges, many figures, dolls, necklaces, kyarapetas, stationery of all kind with clearfiles/notebooks/pens/eraser/ruler/pencil case/band folder etc., pass case, stickers, bookmarks, plush toys, many kero plush keychains, postcards, miniature weapons (of both wands), trading cards, several character sleeve collections, gashapon keychains, towels, nailart sets, a wooden music box, dress stickers, a rubber straps collection, a 2014 desktop calendar and even 3 new artbooks!
But that wasn't the end, now we've got a collection of rings! It will be released on July 31th, 2014 and cost 5400jpy

Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE will be coming back with a new chapter in August 20th's Weekly Shonen Magazine. It will be linked to xxxHOLic Rei.

(I assume xxxHOLic Rei Volume 3's drama CD featuring Syaoran being released the same day is no coincidence.)

The flood of goodies really doesn't stop, and Clamp sure keeps track of all these. They posted the link on their twitter account. This time around, we got charms: Card Captor Sakura charms collection (カードキャプターさくら チャームコレクション) by Bandai.

Here is the link to the official website with the complete description, and this is also where you can preorder them.

Basic information:
The preorder period starts today, June 3rd, 2014
They will be shipped (expected date) to the customers in September 2014
The dimensions:
   -full size charm: about 50mm × 17mm × 6mm
   -mascot size charm: about 20mm × 15mm × 6mm
   -chain length: about 250mm
The cost is 3240jpy, but I am not sure if it's for both models or only one of the two (only the seal set, only the star set or both together since it's a 'collection'). My personal guess is it's both together, because there are no buttons allowing you to choose which type you want to preorder: the only things you can control are how many you want, and whether you want a gift warp or not.

Lately, more than a fan of Clamp posting news in a livejournal, I feel like a sales woman making updates in her online store or something, seriously, there have been THAT many new CCS goodies this year 2014, and we are only in June! ^^;;

Anyway! Here goes again, this time, it's...NEW TRADING CARDS! They are scheduled to be released on 08/08/2014~

About the photo above: all the cards lined up on the right are illustrations from the artbooks, but the ones on the left aren't: these are pictures I've never seen before. The questions are: 1-are they new? In which case, owning these would be REALLY interesting, or 2-are they pics from previous decks of CCS trading cards released in the past and that I do not recognize? I most certainly do NOT pretend to know about all the many hundreds of trad. cards of CCS released along the years.... so this is a serious possibility too.

EDIT, june 3rd: description and details on the official website: http://p-memories.com/node/574712 and also 4 new trading cards sleeves: http://chara-supply.com/product/sleeve289/ http://chara-supply.com/product/sleeve288/ http://chara-supply.com/product/sleevemtg002/ http://chara-supply.com/product/sleevemtg001/
