CLAMP Draws Cover Illustration for "Cardcaptor Sakura" Manga New Editions

The first two volumes will be released on March 27, 2015

Kodansha launched Nakayoshi, the oldest still-going shoujo manga magazine in December 1954. In commemoration of its 60th anniversary, the publisher next year will start releasing 9-volume new editions of CLAMP's Cardcaptor Sakura manga, which was serialized in the magazine from 1996 to 2000. The manga was originally compiled in 12 tankobon volumes, and with the great help of the well-received anime series animated by Madhouse, the total print reached 15 million in Japan.


CLAMP draws all the cover illustrations for the new nine volumes. All the volumes will come with their digital editions and the latest arts not included in the paper editions. The first two volumes will be released simultaneously on March 27, 2015, and the cover illustration for the first volume is now online.


Also on January 29, 2015, reprint editions of "Clow Card set" (originally published in 1999) and "Clow Card

fortune book" (in 2000), are scheduled to be released. For the fans who can't wait, the two books are

now presold at the ongoing "Cardcaptor Sakura Original Art Exhibition" at Tokyo Soramachi.
