A report from Japanese broadcasters NHK has brought to light that the Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card anime will run for 26 episodes. This treat comes after a promo video for the series based on CLAMP’s manga was revealed on the show’s official website on Friday.

Luckily for overseas fans, Crunchyroll saw fit to post an English subtitled version, teaming it with the announcement that they will stream the show in January. If you give it a watch below, you’ll get your first listen to Maaya Sakamoto’s opening theme ‘CLEAR’ and Saori Hayami’s ending ‘Jewelry’.

FUNimation are also running the subtitled trailer, since they announced there will be a tandem dub stream on FunimationNow. The anime will premiere in Japan on January 7th, so get excited for the subbed and dubbed streams starting from that date.

Morio Asaka returns from Cardcaptor Sakura‘s first anime series and two movies to direct Clear Card at studio Madhouse. Kunihiko Hamada is also back from these previous three projects to work as character designer. Mokona provides costume and card designs, while their CLAMP compariot Nanase Ohkawa writes the scripts. The anime also features a fully returning cast.

I’m really looking forward to this. Really hope I can watch it and I really hope it captures what made Cardcaptor so fun.
