Following their home video release of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card this year, Australian anime publisher Madman Entertainment have confirmed that the entire series is now available this Friday evening for a weekend anime binge session via their AnimeLab video-on-demand streaming service. As the subtitle on the artwork above indicates, all twenty-one episodes are available English dubbed. However, coming in at quite a surprise, none of the episodes are available with the original Japanese-language audio. Whether a Japanese Language / English Subtitled version will be available at a later date has yet to be confirmed. You can begin watching the episodes HERE.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card is the sequel to the 1998-2000 anime Cardcaptor Sakura (Localised in some English markets as Cardcaptors) – based off the original manga by CLAMP and once again animated by the studio Madhouse. After sealing the last of the Clow Cards, Sakura Kinomoto is ready to face her newest challenge—junior high. But just when she settles into a normal routine, a strange dream changes everything. The cards are blank, rendered powerless, and a cloaked figure grants her a new key of magic. New events begin to occur in the town of Tomoeda, and it falls to Sakura to claim a new set of cards – the Clear Cards.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card features a brand new English dub – featuring Monica Rial as Sakura Kinomoto, Mikaela Krantz as Kero, Natalie Hoover as Tomoyo Daidouji, Jason Liebrecht as Syaoran Li and Amanda Lee as newcomer to the series Akiho Shinomoto.
