Magical Girl Fans (and others) rejoice! Cardcaptor Saukra, the mystic adventure, the quest for all time, is finally returning to television with a sequel anime in the works. You’ll notice the familiar faces of Sakura, Li, and Tomoyo in the trailer, as well as some others, all returning for a new adventure with the book of the Clow Cards. Check out the nostalgic trailer below and learn more about what to expect from the return of Carpcaptor Sakura after 18 years of the original anime show.
Toonami and WB Kids aired the original Cardcaptor Sakura statewide. It was the story of a girl who obtained a magical book of cards, which escape from the book they’ve been trapped in for years. It’s up to Sakura and her friends to track down each magical card and its entity, and return them to the book. Sakura must find each card, battle the entity that forms from it and seal it away again.
The newest reincarnation of the television series, has Sakura set to “clear” the Clow cards she’s collected this go round, instead of capturing them. While we’re not sure what “clear” means, it’s just great to see the return of such a beautiful anime.
The return to tv for Carcaptor Sakura will occur in January 2018. Until then we will wait for more details and hope that this anime sequel (based on the the new series of comics by CLAMP) is as special as the original anime back in 2000.
Are you excited for the return of Cardcaptors to your tv next year?
