In a world where everyone bears metal arms, a demon bearing a hundred pairs of metal arms threatens total destruction on the world and everyone who lives within it.

A boy named Ashidaka, with two pairs of metal arms of his own, gathers his companions for the sacred war to come…

Guided by the Key of Dreams, Sakura embarks on a new adventure! With over 15 million copies in print in Japan alone, plus translations in over a dozen languages, the original Cardcaptor Sakura is an international phenomenon you can’t miss! And now, the long-awaited new chapter begins! It is spring, with cherry trees in full blossom, and Sakura is just entering middle school. Her beloved Syaoran has returned from Hong Kong, and life couldn’t be better. But when she awakens from a strange dream to find her Sakura Cards powerless, how can she protect Tomoeda from disaster?!


The Ghost in the Shell: The Human Algorithm




This brand-new chapter fills in the gaps between The Ghost in the Shell: Human-Error Processor and Man-Machine Interface manga with a tense cyberpunk thriller written by Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex script writer Junichi Fujisaku.
