Glad that the cast wasn't changed.

YES!

I was just worried whether or not Madhouse would be the studio. This wait is nothing compared to Final Fantasy XV and other series. (*≧∀≦*)

It's a long wait that's worth the wait.

Very nice, I just hope they stick with the anime continuity given the anime and manga went off on different directions. I didn't read the manga and I don't care. Let's not spin a web trying to remotely connect the more convoluted elements of the TRC universe back to this.


The only reason CCS manga even got a sequel is trc-related multiverse
i been reading all of tsubasa chronical manga and i dont see how it related to the saqual with the clear cards

January 2018? Get out! This ridiculous announcements really gone too far.
A lot of things could happen in a few months but in 2018?
This damn Japanese really wants to get more cash, doesn't they?

Nice, gives me a bit more of time to check out the original until then.

I have not seen the original CCS series but from a friend of mine she pretty much loved it a lot, so well considering this will come around in 2018 it might give me more time to watch the original honestly, if I don't slack off that is.

But good news to the announcement and season airing even though it is early like jack shit.

Oh great, simultaneous weekly broadcast and monthly publication. This will be a long, long anime...

I wonder if CLAMP will maintain its politic of simplification this time. Because after all in the anime Fujitaka was never stated to be the second half-reincarnation of Clow and never received his share of magic.


Since the manga very much is bound to relate to events of TRC, I doubt it.

That's the main problem to be honest. The implications of second half of story are completely different in previous anime project and in the manga.


Barring re-adapting the manga all over again or ignoring the previous show its nigh impossible to adapt. Frankly I hope for re-adaptation as that would give anime bigger gap before it catches up to the new manga.

edit: ah no, the manga will probably be nearing its end in 2018.

Well this will give me enough time to get around to watching the original.

Nov 27, 2016 10:11 AM by thebrentinator24

OH, I'm so excited!
