    Default Cardcaptor Sakura on Blu-Ray

    For all those interested in Cardcaptor Sakura, I have some good news. The series about the lovable magical girl Sakura will be coming to Blu-Ray

    On March 27th, the Clow Card Arc will be released. On June 26, the Sakura Arc will also come out.

    Comparison pictures for the Blu-Ray are up all over the internet, and you can actually see the difference. The sharpness the original had has pretty much vanished.

    They can be bought off the Japanese amazon, but even then, they're pretty expensive. Around 670 American dollars for the first set, and 404 dollars for the second set.

    Sadly though, no US release. Then again, the chances were already slim, at best.

    I'll have to wait quite a while to buy it. Not to mention the Blu-Ray player I'll need.

    Nah. I'd be happy with a standard DVD copy. However, would it be creepy for someone like me to have CCSakura?

    For someone like me, CCS started it all for me. So of course, I'm going to want an amazing, much better copy than the original. Even if it is expensive. And nah Kyuu, I don't think its that weird.

    Ooh, that's lovely. ^^ It's a tad expensive, but it's probably cheaper than buying the Blu Ray discs separately. :/

    Also, wouldn't the Blu Ray player here be different than the one in Japan?

    That is a good point. See, for me, I haven't the slightest clue how Blu-Players would work. That is probably a good point though.

    God, this is the one thing I hope gets some kind of American release. Blu-Ray anime releases have been happening a lot lately here, so why not this show. It was epic.

    Eh no worse than owning any other magical girl show I guess. On the plus side, no English release probably means no terrible Geneon dub!

    Good point. Still, if they could just subtitle it and send it over, I'd be very happy.

    I know a place you could probably order a Blu Ray player for Japanese releases. But it ships from Hawaii and I haven't glanced at the site in years.

    I'll probably wait a bit. Since CCSakura's time, the anime industry here has gotten a lot better.

    There may actually be a possibility for such releases!

    I was actually satisfied with Pioneer - now Geneon.

    The region coding for blu-ray is the same in Japan and the US, so unless that's changed, you should be able to watch Japanese bvds on American players and vice versa. Actually, that's been an argument as to why there's so little anime on bvd so far, apparently the Japanese companies are afraid of reverse imports.

    I'd be happy with any new release of CCS for North America. It should really come out with some sort of box-set soon!

    CCS on Blu-Ray would be pretty neat, too bad I'd still look like a complete pedo for buying DVD's of a magical girl show at my age.

    I'll buy CSS even if they think I'm a pedo.

    CSS has sentimental value to me so I could care less what people judge me.

    I never got to watch the series in it's original form. Only time I ever did was that really butchered version that skipped tons of episodes and content.

    I'm probably missing out.

    Meh, if a company ever re-released the series on dvd or blu-ray, then I'll probably give a volume or two a try.

    You may not like at this point in time though.
    I can definitely say that I had a hard time watching through it after going through it the first time... cut.

    Well, of course it'll be silly and probably a bit corny, but I don't think that'll really hinder anything if I watch it.

    Well. In my opinion, it is a pretty timeless show. When I have the money, I'll definitley buy it, if not because that series is everything to me. Anime was Cardcaptor Sakura when i first got into it.

    Thanks Symph Lizard, for pointing out the Blu-Ray confusion.

    And, although it has been said, CCS has a big sentimental value to me as well. I don't think I would have ever stuck to anime without this series helping me along.

    Good thing I watched the subs and not the cut ones.

    What if CCS was dubbed but with no cuts? That wouldn't be too bad, would it?

    I don't know. The original was very amazing in my opinion. I mean, even Sakura's voice actor's name was Sakura. How rad is that?

    I don't think I could handle Monica Rial as Sakura. Even if she does an amazing job as the TRC one.

    Now Jason Liebricht as Syaoran...hmm...maybe.

    Never particularly interested in Card Captor, but it does sound interesting. ^^ I should check it out anyway.

    I remember the days when we used to call Nelvana, Nelbaka.
    Those were the days... how long ago was that? 8 years ago?

    You're right. I'm pretty sure it was 8 years ago. They did good with CCS though.

    This would be nice to watch again in high definition. It's too bad Japan and the UK don't share the same BD region like they do for DVDs.
