Cardcaptor Sakura's Cast Reunites for Sakura's Birthday
posted on by Eric Stimson
Sakura, Card Captor Sakura's heroine, has a birthday on April 1. To celebrate the occasion this year, a big party is being planned at the Rune Kodaira Great Hall in Kodaira, Tokyo, which fits 1,229 guests. Much of the anime's cast is being reunited: Sakura Tange (Sakura), of course, but also Junko Iwao (Tomoyo), Aya Hisakawa (Kero-chan), Motoko Kumai (Li), Megumi Ogata (Yukito), and perhaps others.
The party will be held in two different sections, an afternoon event beginning at 3:30 and an evening one at 6:30. Interested fans must apply for the tickets on e+; application closes on February 19, and the winners of a ticket raffle will be announced on February 23. There are four different ticket categories: general (5,940 yen/$51.70), one adult and one child (9,720 yen/$84.60), one adult and two children (13,500 yen/$117.50), and two adults and two children (19,440 yen/$169).
Card Captor Sakura celebrated its 20th anniversary last year by announcing a new manga and anime series. The manga is currently running in Nakayoshi magazine, while the anime will premiere in January 2018.
