TOKYOPOP...Cardcaptor Sakura part ways...

Kodansha has cut ALL ties with Tokyopop, which is a huge blow considering that Kodansha owns the rights to basically all of CLAMP's series including Cardcaptor Sakura. Dark Horse has announced it will be releasing an omnibus version of the series next year. Because of this, TOKYOPOP will be unable to do any reprints of the series.

My pleasure, sir. Of course when the CCS Omnibus series comes out, I'll have to buy it to go with my original 6 TP books, two revised bookcase series, 6 'Master of the Clow' TP books, original 12 Japanese, 8 bilingual and 10 cine-manga books, both English and Japanese versions :)
