For the ones of you are not following, or simply forgot, we got 3 new releases today, december 2d, in Japan:
-Card Captor Sakura Clear Cards arc volume 1: regular and special editions
-Tsubasa Illustration Chronicle
-Tsubasa Caracter Chronicle

All 3 are of the exact same dimensions as you can see, which is a disappointement for the artbook...

Where to order them? (for international fans)

Card Captor Sakura CC arc vol01

Regular Edition: CD Japan | Amazon Japan
Special Edition: CD Japan | Amazon Japan

Amazon Japan:

Today, Animate announced the releases, on April 22d, 2017, of these 4 deadly adorable pink and green Sakura and Syaoran bears: the little 12cm version of Sakura and Syaoran for 1080jpy each (which is actually a re-release, their first release was in April 2016), and two 30cm Sakura and Syaoran bears for 4104jpy each, those are new. We can argue though, that similar bears (but slightly smaller, and not exactly the same appearance) were once prizes in the CCS Animate Lottery.

The pre-orders already started, and ends on December 18th, 2016. Careful though, their stocks are limited, so the pre-orders might end before that date.

The whole set of stickers is sold for 240jpy (1.99usd) and can be used in the LINE app.
Unfortunately, this seems to be reserved to Japan only. It's interesting to see there are many others anime/manga stickers sets available worldwide though. But as far as I know, not many people use LINE to communicate outside of Asia...?

Sakura's Fortune Magic ichiban kuji started today, November 12d, in Japan.

From the first look at the auctions on yahoo.co.jp auctions, the most expensive items are as expected: prize H (a collection of 9 rubber straps) and the Special Prize (illustration). Everything else can be purchased at a decent cost, without ruining yourself ^^

Here are all the countdown little images which has been uploaded on the official website of the lottery during this past month: 1 month left, 3-2-1 weeks left, 5-4-3-2-1 days left, for a total of 9 pictures which features all 9 chibis drawn by CLAMP for this event.

And then we got D-Day! :D

[identity profile] cutesherry.livejournal.com
A new little countdown picture was uploaded: there is 3 weeks left until the lottery.

Here goes also 2 photos of the items, I like these kind of pictures which are not necessarily well taken or pretty, but gives a more realistic feel to the goods compared to the perfectly edited and gorgeous ones on the website. It's good to see the proportions between the items too.

It wasn't posted on the website, but here you can see the back of the enveloppe which contain the illustration: all the chibis appear on it.
So if you are not interested in the lottery's awards, and are just a fan of CLAMP/CCS who want to collect their artworks, you can pretty much limit yourself to purchasing this one award.

FINALLY  updated!!! These past couple of weeks were quite surprising for me, since I was expecting to get news about this Ichiban Kuji way before now, but it seems like this was calculated on their part: they updated exactly one month before the lottery will take place (november 12th) and we even got a countdown-like picture made for it (they did the same for the pervious lottery too):



As you can see on the listing bellow, there is plenty of new artworks by CLAMP starting, of course, with the new illustration (the special prize) featuring Sakura and Yue, and then 9 new chibis: 3 Sakura, 1 Tomoyo, 1 Syaoran, 1 Kero, 1 Spinel, 1 Yue, 1 Eriol (so rare!) and even 1 Ruby Moon! Their are all wearing newly designed magic themed clothes ^__^

Prizes line up:

I unfortunately don't know what this last thing is about, but I am putting it here anyway:

And here, I naively thought this time around I wouldn't ruin myself for an ichiban kuji, it's once again a lost case ;___;

There's a new line of xxxHOLiC-themed 'Line app stickers'. I think you need to download the app to get the sticker, but the preview image has some cute pictures.

And be sure you are following Nekoi Tsubasa on twitter as she is posting a few Halloween-themed illustrations this month.

And of course follow CLAMP's twitter account to see the numerous High & Low movie fanart.

And there's a bunch of new CCS products at Animate including hand cream, water bottles and bento box items.
[identity profile] cutesherry.livejournal.com
It was released 2 days ago and I did pre-order it, nonetheless, it was pre-ordered with other items which will be released later this year (to save on shipping cost, I try to group together my items as often as possible...) so you will not be getting scans of photos from me anytime soon, sorry ;__;

Still, these are some pics I found online so far:

The 2 sided calendar have 6 cards which are made of heavy cardstock, and at the bottom on the pics, you can see a cutting line: the calendar part can be cleanly removed afterward, and you will be left only with the illustrations! ^_^ (it's little details like these that make the difference!)

As for the choice of artworks, I don't know how the whole thing looks like, but it's quite obvious that they chose to print and publish the 2013 moblie game illustrations. I suspect the other months are probably the same. (I also saw a comment on amazon.co.jp of a fan reviewing that the october month has a Halloween themed picture, which is also one of the 2013 mobile game pics)

EDIT [oct 7th]: big BIG thanks to both [livejournal.com profile] himitsuru and [livejournal.com profile] sayorannguyen for posting so many interesting links and sharing great pics of this item!! Please chech their comments to see it all, I am only posting a few images out of the lot here:

People, you can start sheding bloody tears now....uurrrhhhhh....no, I mean, the cover of the CCS 2017 calendar (anime version) scheduled for release early october, was revealed....

....and it's an old artwork again...

Experience from the past few years has shown that when the cover is an old picture, the whole thing is...I am more disappointed this year compared to the previous ones, because I had high expectations due to CCS's 20th anniversary, the new manga and the annoucement of a new anime.

Nonetheless, it's still a very big A2 sized calendar with 7 pages of glossy paper and well printed anime artworks, and which potentially never made it in the artbooks! :)

I remind you that this calendar can be pre-ordered from pretty much everywhere for international fans: CDJapan, Amiami etc...
[identity profile] cutesherry.livejournal.com
The product was listed today in amiami (right HERE) and these are the details they put about it:


[Set Contents]
-Card-shaped calendar
-B6 booklet


Author: CLAMP

(1) Special clear sleeve designed with new illustration by CLAMP
(2) "Special 1/1 Kero-chan plush" made based on (1) illustration
(3) "Nakayoshi furoku-fuu birei calendar" including 5 illustrations that are published as a book for the first time
(4) "Special booklet" (16 pages) including bangai hen manga.

*Manga work included in the booklet is a rerecording of short stories that were included in 1998 released "Cardcaptor Sakura illustration collection".


So yes, it's now 100% confirmed that we are getting the oneshot from the 90's artbook...
It's interesting to see they are using yet again a clear sleeve, like they did for the artbook and the special edition of vol09.
It's also a surprinsingly nice touch of them to take the pain to make a Kero plushy which looks like the artwork of the memorial box: they could have just put a random plush toy version of Kero ^^;
As for the calendar's illustrations, it feels like they are going to use the latest pictures released these past few month in the Nakayoshi, which is not bad really: they are all quite nice and having a textless and well printed version is good ^_^
I'm not sure what to feel about the "card shaped" calendar though: I hope they are not talking about the dimensions, because it means it's going to be quite little ^^;

EDIT: also available for pre-order at CDJAPAN and AMAZON.CO.JP

EDIT [08/23]:

[identity profile] cutesherry.livejournal.com
