Anime NYC 2018: Hit Manga Cardcaptor Sakura and Princess Jellyfish Return in Deluxe Edition, Box Set and more from Kodansha

The groundbreaking fantasy manga Cardcaptor Sakura will return in a new, nine-volume hardcover deluxe edition starting in Spring 2019. Major manga publisher Kodansha Comics revealed the new release of the classic graphic novel series from revered creators CLAMP, which will be titled Cardcaptor Sakura: Collector’s Edition, at their panel at the Anime NYC convention.

Like previous premium manga re-releases from Kodansha Comics, which have included Sailor Moon Eternal Edition and the Eisner Award-winning Akira 35th Anniversary Edition, Cardcaptor Sakura Collector’s Edition will feature a newly-revised translation, high-quality art and lettering, and all the color pages from the original Japanese run. Each hardcover will also include new cover art by CLAMP and a  “clow card,” and Kodansha teased that readers who collect all nine volumes are in for a special treat!

Kodansha Comics will release the fifth volume of CLAMP’s new sequel series Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card, which has become a hit in its own right since it began late last year, on Nov. 20.

The publisher also announced a collector’s box set of their hit story about geek girls in Tokyo, Princess Jellyfish. The complete series box set will feature all nine paperback volumes of Akiko Higashimura‘s acclaimed series, which was adapted into an anime in 2010 before becoming an English-language bestseller in 2016. More details will be released soon about the set, which readers will be able to enjoy in time for the holiday season in 2019. Kodansha is also publishing Higashimura’s new series Tokyo Tarareba Girls in print, with the fourth volume due out on Dec. 18 and already available digitally.

Also coming in 2019, Kodansha said, are two new manga based upon popular video game franchises: a four-volume adaptation of popular RPG Tales of Berseria, by artist Nobu Aonagi, and a two-volume series based on Type-Moon‘s popular mobile game Fate/Grand Order, titled Fate/Grand Order -mortalis:stella, by creator Shiramine.
