Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card Film to Screen in U.S. Theaters (Update)
posted on by Karen Ressler
Crunchyroll announced with a video on Friday that it will screen the Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card anime film in United States theaters on January 31, February 3, and February 4. The screening will be accompanied by the "prologue" episode of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card. Both will be in Japanese with English subtitles.
Tickets are available on Crunchyroll's "movie night" website. Attendees will receive a limited edition postcard while supplies last.
Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card, the franchise's second film, debuted in Japan in 2000, and Geneon released the film on DVD with an English dub in 2003. The film also began rescreening in Japan this past weekend. Crunchyroll describes the story:
In Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card, Sakura and Syaoran are reunited at last -- but as Sakura tries to come to terms with her feelings for Syaoran, the two must face off against the strongest Clow Card ever made!
The television anime adaptation of CLAMP's Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card sequel manga premiered on Sunday in Japan. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan, and Funimation will stream the dub beginning on January 24. NHK reported earlier this month that the series will have 26 episodes.
Update: Crunchyroll confirmed with ANN that the screenings will be in Japanese with English subtitles.
