Hello everyone! I’m Ayumi, your favorite MANGA.TOKYO otaku writer, and I try to live a wonderful otaku life every single day!
Last time we went through some essential Sailor Moon merchandise, so this time I’m going to introduce you to some Cardcaptor Sakura items that I’m sure will become a fad again thanks to the upcoming 20th anniversary and the new anime! I know there are people who brandished the cards like Sakura-chan!
We have everything from nostalgic merchandise to fantastic, brand-new items. I wonder which of them are going to sell out this Christmas… Let’s check them right away!
Cardcaptor Sakura Clothes You Want to Wear
There were so many Sakura collaborations with small items and merchandise up until now, but because it’s the title’s 20th anniversary this year, there are also many collaborations with fashion brands!
First, from SecretHoney: tops and skirt like a Tomoeda elementary school uniform
SecretHoney, the womens clothing brand, brings us a set of tops and skirt that look just like the Tomoeda elementary school uniform. There is a printing of the sealing wand that we associate with Sakura-chan on the hem of a skirt. It’s nice that you can wear it as your everyday clothes. Tops are the cut-sew material so it’s easy to wear.
Next is a dress that has Clow cards on the hem! SecretHoney is a brand known for ‘arranging anime clothes into plain clothes’, perfect for celebrating your favorite titles without looking likea cosplayer. The lace-ups on the back and the big ribbon makes it more like Sakura-chan. It’s really cute!
Unfortunately, they are all sold out because of their popularity but they will probably on sale again in the future, so please check all the time!

BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT
Next is the collaboration with the Lolita brand, BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT.
This brand is very famous in the Lolita fashion world and appeared in the movie Kamikaze Girls. It even has a branch in Paris, France. What kind of collaboration can they do with Sakura-chan?
I thought I was going to faint when I saw it for the first time because it was too cute. SecretHoney is designing plain clothes, but BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT is remaking a dress to be faithful to the original. It has star hair ornaments, the stripes are awesome, and the light pink color can be called sakura (cherry blossom). All the Sakura-chan fans will agree to it.
They have reached the maximum amount of reservations, so they won’t accept any new ones.
Many Items are Reproduced
Return to your true form! Clow cards set
Reproduced Clow cards that Sakura-chan used in the anime. All 52 cards are included. An item you want to have if you are a fan of the series
There is a Sakura card version with the Star Wand that we recently introduced to you here on MANGA.TOKYO!
But, of course, there is not only the Star Wand in the series. Here we have the Sealing Wand that was used in the beginning of the anime. It’s sold out, but they still have the voice card sets so please check them out.
With these items, you can completely transform into Sakura-chan.
The official goods are of such high quality that I’m almost at a loss for words. Especially the clothes are irresistible for us ladies. It feels like Sakura-chan is going to give you courage when you wear one of them.
The Ichibankuji lottery has small items that are ideal for those who think that the clothes are cute, but can’t wear them. Because it’s a lottery, you may not always get what you want, but your will surely win something every time.
You can get small items, phone straps, and so many more. It’s so much fun and the illustrations on the items are unique to the lottery.
-More Sakura-chan closer to you!
This hair-dryer is so cute that I closed my eyes once to get adjusted to the cuteness. It’s modelled after the Sealing Wand. Don’t you want to ‘Hanyaaaan’? Sometimes it’s difficult to find use for all the small items you get, but since it’s a hair dryer, it’s use is straight forward.
The troublesome hair-drying time is going to be fun everyday.
Ready for more Cardcaptor Sakura?
Since the Clear Card Arc is going to be animated, I’m sure the Sakura-chan sensation won’t be stopping any time soon. There will be more items and collaborations. Now is the chance to once again get closer to Sakura-chan. It doesn’t matter that you are all grown up. Otaku culture loves us all, regardless of age.
I’m going to be posting all the latest info on Otaku items, so please stay tuned to MANGA.TOKYO!
