I think there were preorder ticket sales back in October, but this is general sales. (whatever the difference may be). This is the xxxHOLiC stage event featuring the anime seiyuu.

For the ones of you are not following, or simply forgot, we got 3 new releases today, december 2d, in Japan:
-Card Captor Sakura Clear Cards arc volume 1: regular and special editions
-Tsubasa Illustration Chronicle
-Tsubasa Caracter Chronicle

All 3 are of the exact same dimensions as you can see, which is a disappointement for the artbook...

Where to order them? (for international fans)

Card Captor Sakura CC arc vol01

Regular Edition: CD Japan | Amazon Japan
Special Edition: CD Japan | Amazon Japan

Amazon Japan:

Today, Animate announced the releases, on April 22d, 2017, of these 4 deadly adorable pink and green Sakura and Syaoran bears: the little 12cm version of Sakura and Syaoran for 1080jpy each (which is actually a re-release, their first release was in April 2016), and two 30cm Sakura and Syaoran bears for 4104jpy each, those are new. We can argue though, that similar bears (but slightly smaller, and not exactly the same appearance) were once prizes in the CCS Animate Lottery.

The pre-orders already started, and ends on December 18th, 2016. Careful though, their stocks are limited, so the pre-orders might end before that date.

The whole set of stickers is sold for 240jpy (1.99usd) and can be used in the LINE app.
Unfortunately, this seems to be reserved to Japan only. It's interesting to see there are many others anime/manga stickers sets available worldwide though. But as far as I know, not many people use LINE to communicate outside of Asia...?

"Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection" takes place several years after "Zero Requiem" plan

Sunrise announced at the Code Geass 10th Anniversary event on Sunday (November 27th) that the franchise is getting its "next project" as well as a three-part compilation anime film series. Below is the visual announcing the next project:

The next project is a sequel titled Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection), but the announcement did not reveal the format of the project. The story takes place several years after Lelouch's "Zero Requiem" plan. Sunday's event featured a teaser promotional video with Kallen, Jeremiah, Suzaku Kururugi, and other characters. The staff also stated [Spoilers, highlight to read: Lelouch himself from the previous anime, and not an alternate dimension version or clone, will be in the new project.]

The three-part film series will recap all 50 episodes of the original Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion series and the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 sequel series. The cast are re-recording all their lines for the films, and the films will include new scenes. The first film will open in 2017.

Fans who had received tickets and an invitation to Sunday's "Kiseki no Anniversary" event decoded a possible secret code within the invitation that read "Rebirth of the Demon." Bandai's Anime Channel service will stream the event in Japan starting on December 23 at noon, followed by a DVD and Blu-ray Disc release on April 21, 2017. The home video release will include a digest video of the event's stage performance, a picture drama that debuted at the event, a new Fukkatsu! Kiseki no Baba Gekijō short, and the promotional video that announced the new project. Below is the package art by character designer Takahiro Kimura:

The cover of the first tankouban is above. It will be released December 2nd.

And close-up of the limited edition extras.


The upcoming January issue of Nakayoshi magazine will announce that the “new anime project” for Card Captor Sakura is a new TV Series of Clear Card arc to be premiered in January 2018 with similar cast and staff as the original Anime!

The TV Series will be produced by Madhouse and directed by Morio Asaka — same animation studio and director as the original anime! No word yet on whether CLAMP’s Nanase Ohkawa will be writing scripts for it, but let’s hope so!

Moreover, the cast for Sakura, Kero, Syaoran, Yukito and Touya is the same as the original TV Anime as well!:

The TV Series is to be aired on NHK channel.

Well, that's what I call good news, and first thing in the morning at that (well, for me)!!! :D
They pretty much gave us all we wanted: MADHOUSE, the same seiyuus and even the same director! I will let you imagine how difficult it is to meet all this conditions all at once, considering that the previous series ended 16 years ago!!
The covers of the two new Tsubasa guidebooks have been revealed. Both will be on sale December 2nd.

The series revolves around kabuki, a classic style of Japanese dance-drama that combines music, drama, and dance. Kurogo Kurusu, a 15-year-old high school student has a passion for kabuki and hopes to establish a kabuki club at school. Things are not easy as they seem when he realizes that he needs to find students to join him.

It will be aired in April 2017 in Japan, and CLAMP was revealed today to be the ones in charge of the character design.

Sakura's Fortune Magic ichiban kuji started today, November 12d, in Japan.

From the first look at the auctions on yahoo.co.jp auctions, the most expensive items are as expected: prize H (a collection of 9 rubber straps) and the Special Prize (illustration). Everything else can be purchased at a decent cost, without ruining yourself ^^

Here are all the countdown little images which has been uploaded on the official website of the lottery during this past month: 1 month left, 3-2-1 weeks left, 5-4-3-2-1 days left, for a total of 9 pictures which features all 9 chibis drawn by CLAMP for this event.

And then we got D-Day! :D

The interview is about CLAMP's use of Cybozu Live while they work. There's also an interesting interview between Cybozu and Nanase Ohkawa here. Nanase Ohkawa discusses the meaning of being 'different' and 'normal' with CCS in mind.

The above picture is the paper mat given as a benefit with the ticket

Here goes one more events to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Card Captor Sakura! It will be held at the AREA-Q of the Tokyo queue Plaza Harajuku for a limited time: from December 2d, and will last until December 25th.

This time, it's a cafe which has as a theme: "Sakura 's Christmas party". In the menu: a Christmas plate with a cookie that looks like Kero, and  many different drinks at the image of the characters and the cards: there are 10 drinks in total, 6 at the image of characters (Sakura, Kero, Syaoran, Tomoyo, Touya and Yukito) and 4 at the image of Clow Cards (The Fly, The Flower, The Mirror, The Light and The Dark together). As a bonus with the drinks: original coasters are included.

Needless to say, the store will have Christmas decorations: screening of images on a big screen monitor, exhibition of original contents, screening of images that can only be seen at "Card Captor Sakura Christmas Party in HARAJUKU" to celebrate the 20th anniversary of serialization, looking back on the history since the series started, and more.
Also, during the event's period, Kero (meaning a big mascot) will also come and visit the store. Of course, original goods will be sold, and after the event, it will be possible to get them through mail order.

Tickets will be on sale on the official website of the cafe starting from November 11th, today. Visitor benefits such as hoods, luncheon mats and original novelty goods are included in the tickets. Check the reservation method and future information on the official website of the Cafe and Twitter.

Well, it's not 'new': they already announced it in the first chapter of the Clear Card Arc (released in june 2016, it was written on the 2 pages color spread), but it's nice to know they are not forgetting about it (we didn't hear a single word about it these past 5 months...) and that the plans are still steadily going forward!

Pardon the random bit of kpop, but check out BTS's newest youtube video for Halloween and you'll see that kpop boys love CLAMP's CCS, too.

If you doubt their love, check out Taehyung singing the Korean CCS anime opening. <3
