NIS America set to “recaptor” childhood magic with Cardcaptor Sakura on Blu-Ray and DVD

News by Clark A.

While NIS America has had its share of quirky releases recently, it appears the company isn’t neglecting mainstream works either as it made an announcement today regarding a certain celebrated card collector. She’s among anime’s most identifiable shoujo protagonists and certainly one who those born the nineties recognise. 

Yep – the Cardcaptor Sakura series has been licensed by NISA and will release this summer on August 5th.

There will be both a premium $249.99 USD Blu-Ray release and a standard DVD set, though the latter will be divided into three separate volumes for $59.99 USD apiece. All 70 episodes of the original series are included, split between nine Blu-ray disks or twelve DVDs. Both releases will be in Japanese with English subtitles, though there’s also a “bonus” English track.

Should Cardcaptor Sakura have passed you by back in the day, here’s the show's premise:
Ten-year-old Sakura lives a pretty normal life with her older brother, Toya, and widowed father, Fujitaka. Or she did, until the day she returned home from school to discover a glowing book in her father’s study. After opening the book and releasing the cards within, Sakura is tasked with collecting each of these magical cards while balancing her life as a normal fourth grader. Join Cardcaptor Sakura on her heartwarming tale of love, excitement, and adventure!
You can sneak a peek at the premium bundle below, complete with a collector’s book.
