NISA rescues Cardcaptor Sakura, Blu-rays a go


BD PE and DVD RE, starting August 5th


While pinching myself, I'm here to share with you the great news that NISA has licensed Cardcaptor Sakura the TV series for home video release. The series was originally licensed by Geneon and sat in licensing hell for quite some time, so you will have to forgive me why I am so excited about this license rescue. What's even more exciting is that NISA is planning both a series of DVD Regular Edition releases and a separate Premium Edition Blu-ray release for August 5th. The premium edition will have a hard-cover art book as you can see in the top image, adding up to 76 pages of illustrations and new content.

But you know, while I appreciate that the Blu-ray discs are "metallic gloss" I just want the darn show on Blu-ray. The seminal magical girls show has long captured the fascination of a generation of oversea anime fans (and domestic as well). I'm guessing they will use the latest Blu-ray content from the Japanese remaster, which is a notable step-up from the latest DVD material. Last but not least, NISA's Cardcaptor Sakura will have a dub, too. The Premium Edition will go at the sticker price at around $250 while the DVD version will be released in three seasons, about $60 a piece. The various retailers of course will be giving discounts if you know where to look.

August can't come fast enough.
