The July 2016 issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine (pictured), which goes on sale on June 3, has announced the launch of a new Cardcaptor Sakura anime project.

The Cardcaptor Sakura manga, which was published between 1996 and 2000, is currently commemorating its 20th anniversary. As part of the celebration, mangaka group CLAMP is also launching a new Clear Card-hen serialization in the latest issue of Nakayoshi. The new series is a sequel of the original manga, which is collectively called Clow Card-hen.

Public broadcaster NHK aired the Cardcaptor Sakura anime between 1998 and 2000, and it has been re-airing the series since April on the BS Premium channel. The manga was licensed in English in North America by Dark Horse Comics, while the anime was licensed by NIS America.

On one hand, I really want to read. On the other hand... It will end only in few years time and I had enough of ongoing manga (it's true I still read three, but I don't start new ones)

Especially IF it is remake, it is unlikely to have same director(Oh I hope it is remake so CLAMP can add references to Yuuko and stuff, add stronger connections to rest of clampverse, etc). The tone is different and giving reins to exact same people is counter productive to the very idea of remake.

If it is adaptation of the mini-sequel manga it still makes no sense since it is not a sequel to previous anime but to the manga, with the intention to expand upon the the character's involvement in certain TRC plotlines. Which would yet again mean it makes no sense to retain the original ties to the first adaptation.



Frankly going by history either Mappa(esp since they already talked about the possibility) or production IG(Prod IG's work with xxxholic and trc oads was perfect and they really did well in capturing CLAMP's designs) are more likely choices considering CLAMP's collab with Prod IG for Tsubasa OAD's was top notch. Clamp has not exactly done anything with Madhouse since CiW 2
i was just reading the first chapter of the manga and it have potential to be good as squeal since it seems this sequel happening before the tsubasa chronicle events

such as who..?

Just look at Madhouse's latest "projects" - effortless LN adaptations and the like.

"I didn't like something, therefore it's shit"
so can you tell us what you didn't like about those LN adaptation..and made you call them "effortless"..?


ANd yet half the lead animators were lent from Bones. OPM would not have been OPM without Yutaka Nakamura.
Nope..they weren't from Bones..they were freelancers..which it seems you don't want to accept..


Right now I could name more relevant animators in Silverlink, Shaft, Mappa or Bones than in current Madhouse

yes..please do..
and in the other hand.. I can name more relevant directors in Madhouse than in any of those studios alright, you know.. since the directors are more important than the animators and all..but that's probably won't matter to you since you think the animation is the most important thing and all..lol


The fact does not change that Madhouse leaked most of their talent and has yet to get up from that. MAPPA or the likes guarantees CCS at least having quality. Madhouse doing is unpredictable right now. Even in terms of nostalgia, the madhouse that made the first adaptation is no longer there.
Madhouse was using freelancers animators since forever..so if you want to talk about the leak of talents..then talk about directors like hosoda, yuasa, koike..ect..otherwise you are just talking nonsence..
Asaka has proved again and again that he is a master of shojou adaptations..with shows like Nana, Chihayafuru, Kobato..ect.. and then you come here and say that he "dosn't fit" just because..!!!...and you try to pull your openion on us as a fact..lol
and don't bring LN adaptations as an argument her which Madhouse was never that good at (even before the bankruptcy) as well as almost every other studio at all..now can you give me a LN adaptation as good as NGNL made by Mappa, Bones or whatever..? no..? I thought so..now what about a manga adaptation by shaft..that is better than HxH 2011..? ok that's probably too much..lol
however..we are talking here about a MANGA adaptation..and believe me, when it comes to manga..you can predict that Madhouse has more chances to deliver than any other studio..because they have proved themselves with Manga adaptaions countless times..


That's what I said in my post? MAPPA is pretty much the relevant parts of Madhouse, while current Madhouse struggles with producing anything on the level of their pre-2013 stuff.

if you think that Madhouse didn't do anything good since 2013 doesn't mean everyone do neither means it's true..


Quality and creativity of animation is usually linked to quality of the show. Nobody wants their favorite series to be done by JC Staff for example.
yeah..but you are literally talkig as the animation is the most important thing..you are ignoring directors, scriptwriters, storyborders..basically you are ignoring everyone..and those who I mentioned are absolutely more importent than animators..all what I'm hairing you saying is "Madhouse lost it's talented animators" and then you ignore the rest..
there is a buttload kinds of anime that needs absolutly nothing more than average animation..aside from sport and action packed ones..you don't need anything but delivering the source material's story in the best way possible..with good dialogues, OSTs, screebplay and camera angels.ect...take Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei as example..
"Nobody wants their favorite series to be done by JC Staff for example" now that's new to me.. JC Staff is one of the most consistant studio animation-wise out there..what are you talking about..?


Using freelancers =/= Not having any inside talent.
so no matter how much good adaptions studio have done..if they don't have inside talents, they are shit..well..again:
now we're using the arguiment of whether they have inside talents RATHER than the quality of the anime to compare studio aren't we..?
sounds lame..but thanks god god Madhouse is still have a bunch of talents..which I don't think is the case for Mappa or silver link..


Its not an opinion. Madhouse leaked most of their talent few years ago.
lol..if you think that Mappa took over the entier Madhouse staffs then I don't know what to say...
Madhouse pre bankruptcy was as huge as sunrise or even bigger..after NTV bought it out..Maruyama left because he hadn't have as much freedom to finnish the making of Satoshi Kon's Dreaming Machine..so took almost only the staffs who was working the mentioned movie with Kon..that's it..and those staffs are nowhere near the number of employees that were in Madhouse..


Again, outsourcing and freelancing =/= not having your own talent left.
so could you tell me who are those talents in Mappa..?


Madhouse has not produced any "big hit" kind of quality show since 2013. Comparing their output pre-mappa and post-mappa is all that needs to be said.
since 2013 huh..? so you mean that they actually did some "big hit kind of quality show" in 2011, 2012 and 2013..?
well too bad..cuz 2011 to 2013 are also post-mappa too..since Maruyama left Madhouse and established Mappa in jun 2011 and not in 2013..your entier argument is irrelevant..lol
not to mention..Madhouse not making anything good since 2013 is only your opinion..don't talke like it's a fact..


Yes, because unlike your post full of flame bait, its a factual truth. Different directors handle different subject better or worse. Tone-wise both the rest of Clampverse and the CCS manga are very different beasts altogether from the first CCS show.
flame what..? well..anyway..we want this thing to be directed in Asaka's style and you don't although he did the original one before,.. just because he is from Madhouse and you don't like Madhouse..thus you said tha Mappa would be better to handle it even tho they don't have any director that is actually good at shojou adaption..GG that's all there is to it..XD

God bless you. You have said everything was in my mind

Madhouse regularly hires small studios like Magic bus, TAP, ATPP, Nakamura production, etc for 2nd key animation or inbetween & these studios specialise in that small subcontract works.

"Contracting animators from other studios" - doesnt apply to MadHouse, for example in OPM everyone worked under madhouse banner - since everyone is freelancer.

ANd yet half the lead animators were lent from Bones. OPM would not have been OPM without Yutaka Nakamura.

Right now I could name more relevant animators in Silverlink, Shaft, Mappa or Bones than in current Madhouse


Although what you said applies to certain studios and cases, like White fox & Re:zero this season. Silver link, JCSTAFF & countless other names pop up in Rezero's credits - thats contracting animators from other studios (usually happens when a studio cant handle the full production).

Don't tell me on how production committees work. I know it better than a lot of people here, most likely. Outsourcing second key animation or inter-animation to other studios is common practice.

The fact does not change that Madhouse leaked most of their talent and has yet to get up from that. MAPPA or the likes guarantees CCS at least having quality. Madhouse doing is unpredictable right now. Even in terms of nostalgia, the madhouse that made the first adaptation is no longer there.


Funny enough MAPPA has carried the madhouse tradition of outsourcing an ep or two to Dr.Movie xD also FYI MAPPA uses a lots of madhouse regulars as well (both studios are like, same. Mappa just has maruyama which is the big difference).

That's what I said in my post? MAPPA is pretty much the relevant parts of Madhouse, while current Madhouse struggles with producing anything on the level of their pre-2013 stuff.



malki said:

second..you are -just like canipa- using the argument of the quality of the animation of the anime rather than the qualty of the anime itself to compare between studios..and thats laughable tbh.. because last time I checked..there are anime with top tier animation but still suck..and vice versa..

Quality and creativity of animation is usually linked to quality of the show. Nobody wants their favorite series to be done by JC Staff for example.


also..loooooool at Mappa don't use freelancers...100 out of 150 employees in that companie are temporary staffs..they even collaborated with Studio VOLN (founded by former Madhouse producer) to make Ushio too Tora..plus, there is no point camparing the production values of a ..studio that makes a one-cour or two-cour show every 2 or 3 season with a studio that make a show every season along side with a long running anime.

Using freelancers =/= Not having any inside talent.


"Not to mention that Mappa literally IS everything good from madouse"
can you elaborate about this "opinion" of yours please..?..what do you mean by "everything good from madhouse"

Its not an opinion. Madhouse leaked most of their talent few years ago.

"whle Madhouse can't even finish a show without contracting animators
from other studios first now."

excuse me..but that sounded retarded as hell >_>l..well first..you proved my point that you are generalizing the ideas you got from that OPM's case video to the entier studio..alright.
and by "other studio" you mea Bones I assume..
now..how the hell Madhouse could hire staffs from other studios without the names of those studios appear in the credit tell me please..? I mean.. if they were full time employees in those studios then no body could takes them just like that to worck on full lenght tv anime right..? so yeah..they are just freelancers... for fuck's sake THEY DON'T BELONG TO ANY STUDIO..get it...? now to the main point..

Again, outsourcing and freelancing =/= not having your own talent left.

@Fai
ok..first..you should really get over that canipa effect video..it's bullshit..
and please stop talking like you know everything about Madhouse..cuz honnestly..frome wha I see..you just watched a video that talk about OPM's case..and generalized the ideas that you got from it to every thing Madhouse ever done since 2011..
second..you are -just like canipa- using the argument of the quality of the animation of the anime rather than the qualty of the anime itself to compare between studios..and thats laughable tbh.. because last time I checked..there are anime with top tier animation but still suck..and vice versa..

what you said here is like saying "Real Madrid foot ball team can't even play a match without players from other counturies"
now, you realized how dump that sounds..the point is..So..? what's the problem..? is there some kind of rules that says every studio that don't make shows with exclusively full time employees is a shitty studio..?
now we're using the arguiment of whether the staffs are full time contractors or just freelancers RATHER than the quality of the anime to compare studio aren't we..?

" Again, same director would not fit anyway."
yeah..well..that's not something you decides anyway..

why that face
that would be great.

Exactly.

Mappa is one of the most consistent and badass studios. Not only they consistently manage to do badass action scenes, but they also have tendency of having best OP videos/songs too

Not to mention that Mappa literally IS everything good from madouse, whle Madhouse can't even finish a show without contracting animators from other studios first now.

@fai ^ thats just how all studios work except kyoani?

MAPPA is very good tho. Donno how that'd work for CCS

Jun 2, 2016 11:30 PM by JetNoir

CCS ended perfectly and I can't help but feel like this could only put a damper on the franchise, if they are going to change there going to be a strong negative feedback.

Let's hope everything will be ok.

eromangasensei said:

tbh CCS doesnt benefit from a remake at all. The first series is complete & the visuals still hold up in today's standard quite well. If it's about the tone it can be taken to dark tone in sequel.


Again, would not work for reasons I already explained.

That's like saying they should just adapt Sailor Moon's last arc from manga as sequel to the 90's anime. The tone and characterization is different.

well..that would mean it's not gonna be directed by the same director..(even though some of the staffs who moved to Mappa did the story bords and the directing of some eps of the original anime)


Again, same director would not fit anyway.

Fai said:

That would be the best
i think squel to the original anime would be great becouse we will see high school sakura which i dont mind to watch


It would be nigh impossible to do. The sequel manga is most likely there to cross over and explain certain things that are happening in TRC. And it would not connect to the old show that well, since the meaning of Sakura's journey is different in CCS anime and manga.

Making a sequel to few decades old show as is, is very ridiculous concept.
