The July issue of Kodansha’s Nakayoshi magazine is announcing some big news for the Cardcaptor Sakura series on June 3. In the newest issue it has been revealed that the manga series will be receiving a new anime project.

No other information is being revealed about the project in this issue. More details on the project will be revealed at a later date.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Cardcaptor Sakura manga. A sequel manga for the series was announced earlier this year.

The sequel manga will follow Sakura Kinomoto in her first year of junior high school. It is scheduled to launch in the July issue of Nakayoshi magazine, the same issue as the anime announcement.
