New anime series is now in development
It has been confirmed that the July 2016 issue of Kodansha's monthly shoujo manga magazine Nakayoshi was sold out at stores only in a week from its release day in Japan, June 2. This is the first time in three years and four months for the magazine since its March 2013 issue that came with the popular "Manga Artist Set." The magazine's print circulation during January to March 2016 was 105,500 copies.
According to the publisher, the two biggest reasons for the huge sales were the issue's bonus item "Statio Set" (stationary set), and the return of CLAMP's internationally popular manga series Cardcaptor Sakura with its new "Clear Card" arc. The magical girl manga series celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and its new anime project was also announced in the issue.
