Rejoice: Cardcaptor Sakura's new anime to premiere in January 2018


Sounds like a dream come true

Well, folks. It turns out that the previously announced Cardcaptor Sakura sequel anime hits Japan's NHK channel in January 2018. To top off the icing on this exquisite cake, Madhouse and the original anime's director, Morio Asaka, are returning for the new TV series.

Since we have a long way to go before 2018 is among us, this gives the staff enough time to gather the materials they need for the series since they're adapting CLAMP's Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc manga. With a good chunk of the show's  main voice actors making a comeback, this new project might be worth the wait. All in all, it's a great way to celebrate Cardcaptor Sakura's 20th anniversary.

As a person who saw a good chunk of the series, I'm looking forward to seeing Sakura and the gang return. Hell, this whole thing reminds me of the time I got to see the original series uncut in Spanish for the first time during my 2001 trip to Maracaibo, Venezuela. Thanks to this experience, I got to see the last ten or five episodes of the show's final arc before the edited version premiered on U.S. television. In fact, this story reminded me that I need to fully watch the show unedited before its sequel airs.

To those who watched Cardcaptor Sakura, are you all looking forward to watching the new series on January 2018?
