Cardcaptor Sakura: The Return of Cardcaptor Sakura - Clear Card Saga

Promotional image used in the June 2016 issue of Nakayoshi announcing the return of Cardcaptor Sakura - the manga - back into the magazine and introducing the Clear Card Saga. Same as my previous scan, I sourced it from the bonus note cards/stickers from the August 2016 issue of Nakayoshi.

Sakura looks beautiful here and as expected, looks a little bit older, although this can vary from illustration to illustration, depending on what CLAMP was aiming for. It does seem for the most part, newer illustrations mean for her to look as a young teen. Nonetheless, she looks beautiful as always and I love how CLAMP has been giving her different cherry blossom costumes! Great to have this manga back!

A few of my favorite female characters

Late woman’s day post despite the fact that I had nothing to do anyway… ಠ_ಠ

In any case please anyone that reads this, I’ll try to use only the official art from the creators but if you see an uncredited illustration and you know the artist please add their name so they can receive credit. 

First things the obvious original waifu of my long forgotten seventh grade days of glory.

Rei Ayanami

Designed by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto this character for some reason really stuck to me through the years. Probably her identity issues related to the conditions of her “birth” amongst other things, but also the air of mystique around her.

It also doesn’t hurt that she’s got one of the most beautiful visual designs and stars in one of my all-time favorite anime series.

Princess Sakura (Sakura Kinomoto)

Most notably (for me) her incarnation in the Tsubasa “universe” to call it a certain way, though it would be arguable she’s the same character as the one in Card Captor and whatever other CLAMP creation she pops up in. Anyway, here we got a character that although physically weak doesn’t let that stop her and goes through many hardships and sacrifices for the sake of others.

You and Syaoran will get your happy ending…. Someday.

Well maybe in some of the alternate universes you already did.

Touka Kirishima

One of the waitresses/Baristas at the Anteiku café from Tokyo Ghoul.

Strong willed, sometimes foul mouthed and, of course, with a kind heart beneath a myriad layers of ass-kicking. Despite her best attempts at appearing otherwise she has given in on more than one occasion and shown her kind caring side towards her human friend Yoriko, fellow ghoul Hinami and obvious romantic interest/recurrent victim of her wrath Ken Kaneki. BTW that ship needs to sail.

Milla Maxwell

One of the dual protagonists of Tales of Xillia (PS3 JRPG) the main theme of the game is conviction and Milla shows this throughout the whole game, while her partner in protagonism Jude struggles to find the one thing that he has to see through Milla from the beginning of her existence knows what that is and spends her life working towards that not giving up even after receiving grave injuries.

Maki Nishikino

The tsundere of the idol moe anime cancer multimedia franchise love live. Ah, beautiful tomato…

Kosaki Onodera

Best Girl forever, too bad she’s part of a sub-par story that was only kind of salvaged by SHAFT’s animation and the author decided to go with the “main guy always picks worst girl” route.

Anyway there are many more I wanted to include but I’m kind of tired of writing this thing and choosing pictures so I’m going to end it here.
