On Dec. 2, Kodansha released the first volume of the new Cardcaptor Sakura manga subtitled Clear Card Arc! It retails for 429 yen (plus tax), but it’s also available as a special version with a deluxe mangaka set for 2,280 yen (plus tax).
The sequel everyone has been waiting for has finally been Released! Sakura, the legendary magical girl who charmed the whole world makes her return, as do the Clow Cards.
The story of Sakura Kinomoto, a fourth-grade elementary school student capturing magical cards in her free time, became instantly popular worldwide among all ages and genders after it started serialization in Nakayoshi in 1996. The first chapter of the new story Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc was published in the July issue of Nakayoshi and was sold out in the blink of an eye. And now, the much-expected first volume was released on Dec. 2.

However, their bliss is interrupted when Sakura wakes up from a strange dream only to find all the cards have turned transparent. Guided by the Key and the Clear Cards, Sakura sets off on a new adventure!
