The May 2017 issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine, which will go on sale on April 3, has announced that limited edition of third volume of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen will bundle an OVA. Titled Sakura to Futatsu no Kuma (Sakura and the Two Teddy Bears), it will feature an original story and will release on September 13, 2017.

Also, the staff members for the OVA will be the same as TV anime, and Kunihiko Hamada (Chihayafuru) has added to the staff list, as he will do character design for the OVA. Nanase Ohkawa will write the script.

The Cardcaptor Sakura manga was adapted into a 70-episode TV anime by Madhouse, which aired between April 1998 and March 2000. The first movie premiered in August 1999 and a second one titled Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card followed in July 2000, serving as a continuation of the TV anime. NIS America licensed the TV anime for North American distribution and re-released the series in BD/DVD in August 2014. Tokyopop initially published the manga in English in North America from March 2001 to August 2003 before Dark Horse Comics re-licensed the series and published the volumes in 3-in-1 omnibus format between October 2010 and September 2012.

OVA before the TV series? Eh, not really sure about that one. Wonder what it'll be about since I doubt they'll start it like it was the first episode of the sequel TV series but I also doubt they'll just put some random content from the middle of the manga.
Maybe they could just use episode 1 of the TV series for this as a preview of sorts.

And Kunihiko Hamada doing the character designs... Just tell me if I should start despairing or not already.

Considering we still don't know if the new series will more directly adapt the sequel manga or if it will loosely adapt it and continue with the previous anime's continuity, this could be literally anything.

It is my understanding that Sakura gives her teddy bear to Shaoran in the manga, which the anime never covered, so considering the title this could be filling in that gap should the new adaptation continue from the previous anime's continuity.

Otherwise... I really have no idea. It's odd to have an OVA before the TV series unless it's a preview or an in-between story.

with "Chiharafuru" which should read Chihayafuru instead I assume(?)


OT: great news, more Sakura is always welcomed.

Oh thank God the art-style is still cute. Guess it transitions well to digital after all.

I'll consider this a test-run to see if I want to watch the Clear-hen TV series, since its one of my worries/uncertainties.

Still no info what the adaptation will cover considering there's literally no way to "connect" a sequel to CCS manga to the previous CCS anime. Third awful CLAMP adaptation would be too much. Its enough that CCS anime already was nothing like manga and then TRC adaptation was turned into saccharine clone of CCS...

OVA will most likely have no ties to series since its mainly for manga readers.

An OVA first before the anime itself? Interesting. We can see how will the animation fare after all these yrs.

As long as there's more Sakura is always fine by me.

OK. I must watch this masterpiece somehow before it comes! I have a good feeling of this series.

I might go for manga for main story and then watch movie and then will wait for the second season happily.

Can anyone tell me how the manga ended in spoilers?

I've watched the second movie, and I thought it was a pretty good ending to the series, and I assumed thats how the manga ended too, but I guess it didn't(?)

Well Clear Card overall is a major downgrade in terms of designs even in manga when compared to TRC. I guess they are banking on nostalgia or something with art but I'd prefer if it retained more "refined" look TRC had. Animation quality seems okay tho.

Still not sure how they plan on handling the adaptation. There are like 10 chapters out right now which I guess could be enough for 1 cour season by the time the anime comes. Do we know when the actual show is airing yet?

Thanks for the reply. Definitely did not expect so many major changes.


I don't recall anything else beside those events in the movie, and I'm guessing the entire movie was anime original. So then, how did things end with Sakura and syaoran in the manga?

While the character designs are cute, I was expecting for them to bring back Kumiko Takahashi's art back for the OVA. From what has been released from the Clear Card Arc manga, I'm wondering more on how the chapters will be adapted since its very slow paced in terms of plot progression so far.

Its unknown how they are planning and if they are planning to connect it to previous anime adaptation. Even if they manage to somehow retcon away the ending with this OVA, it still technically would not fix the other issues.

i think you right about them recton away the ending since as you can see from the preview it hightly possible they going to adapt the manga ending. and why exactly it wont fix the issues even if they will use the manga ending as prologue to clear hen? is it becouse by january 2018 we will only have 19 chapters as metirial for the anime?

I guess the best way would be to just adapt the epilogue of the manga(so even anime only viewers have idea on where and how it going) and then continue Clear Card-Hen as manga adaptation while ignoring the rest of inconsistencies.

Also I would not be surprised if Clear Card Hen or at least it's first arc ends with 19-20 chapters or so considering


20 chapters is easily enough for something like 12-13 episodes total.
