I received the Shonen Mag Special this morning, but with a translation already out from the chinese scans, how many people are still interested in getting the jap scans anyway?

Today, from SuperGroupies, a spin-off brand of anime-inspired fashion mavens 2PM WORKS, we are getting yet more CCS items, and this time around they are really charming!
We've got a boston bag (¥8,424), a shoulder bag (¥5,184), a pouch (¥4,104), tattoo tights (¥2,500) (by ACID&MOFCANA) and insoles (¥1,296) (by ナカヨシナカジキ)!
All the bags are limited editions, and I'm not too sure about the preorder period, the online translation says it ends today, but they were just barely announced so it's strange ^^; I also can't tell if the release date is late september or late november...

The cover of Mizuki Tsujimura's Haken Anime novel is up at Amazon.jp (larger image there). The novel is illustrated by CLAMP and will be released August 22nd.

I am being lazy so I just took all the links from amiami, and that also allow international fans to know where to buy them and at what prices (though I believe they must also be sold at other online stores like yesasia, hobbysearch, hobbylink etc...) but I also have the links to most of the related japanese websites, so if you are interested just comment bellow asking about them.

All the "today's card" shown off from July 18th until today, August 5th:

This whole cards collection seems to be covering only the 1st season, at least from what I can see. This is disappointing. The goodies of all types released until now are very much like this too. I sincerely do not understand why only the first part of CCS is taken into account....

Just like they did last year, Clamp made 2 new crossover artworks for the Kyoto Exhibition. I suspect these illustrations will appear in/on the various merchandises that will be sold at the event, like usual.

The characters in the 2 illustrations were not chosen at random, they are all representing the series of which artworks will be exhibited: Magic Knight Rayearth, Card Captor Sakura, CLOVER, Chobits, Tsubasa-RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE and XxxHOLiC.

I'm surprised not to see TRC|Sakura, but no complains: I got CCS|Syaoran instead, so I'm perfectly happy :)

Wonder Festival summer 2014 is happening right now in Japan, and like each WonFes, we got tons of announcements for all kind of figures.
Good Smile Company announced that Sakura Kinomoto will be made into a Figma, and they also listed Tomoyo as an upcoming Nendoroid. [source]

No prototypes of either were shown at the moment, but I can only guess that the drawing of Tomoyo should be one of the poses of her nendo. version.

Now, from Kotobukiya, we also have an announcement for 2 scale figures (ArtFX+) of Sakura and Syaoran [source1 and source2]

And last but not least, MegaHouse is taking on the series for their super-adorable Petit Chara Land miniset! [source1 and source2]
