Cardcaptor Sakura Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray Delayed (yet again) Until July 2022

The wait to watch Sakura and Kero’s adventure of collecting the Clow Cards in High Definition will have to wait even longer, as it seems Anime Limited have once again, and for the third time, delayed the Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray release until 4th July 2022 within the UK.

At the time of writing Anime Limited, otherwise known as All The Anime, have not yet confirmed the delay, but the product listing on All The Anime Store has been updated to reveal a new 4th July 2022 release date. This is another two month delayed compared to its previous (delayed) release date of 23rd May 2022.

Originally the set was due to be released on the 14th February 2022, but was then quietly pushed back to 28th March 2022 before being publicly delayed until 23rd May 2022. On the latter delay an email was sent out to store orders detailing the reason for the delay, of which saw Quality Control as the reason.

We suspect that this will be the same reason for this third delay, but for reference the full statement can be found below:

While we know you can’t wait to get your hands on this exciting release, we’re still continuing to work on checking and improving the authoring of this release to ensure video, audio and subtitles are as good as they can be, which due to the sheer number of discs and episodes within this release is taking much longer than originally anticipated.

We sincerely apologise for this delay, but we’re sure you can appreciate our desire to take the time needed to ensure the quality of this important release, and rest assured your order for this item will be shipped as soon as humanly possible once stock arrives at our warehouse.

As mentioned the product page on the Anime Limited Store has also been updated to reflect this new release date. It’s also worth noting (again) that this UK Blu-Ray release of Cardcaptor Sakura uses different materials to the previous Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray released in North America by NIS America, with new video and subtitle assets being used, thus offering a better product than the North American release.

For the time being at least the UK Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray release of Cardcaptor Sakura is now expected to arrive on the 4th July 2022.
