Possible Cardcaptor Sakura Remake?

I'M HAVING A HEART ATTACK

Full image here.

There’s been this piece of news circulating around the net since this morning. Apparently the producer of the Cardcaptor Sakura anime expresses a desire to make a new one, in an article found in the recent issue of the ANIMEDIA magazine.

Original Text: 本誌は「CCさくら」を捕獲したい!!
”汝のあるべき姿に戻れ、リメ~イク!”
「どうせなら、新しい『CCさくら』を作りたいです。できれば、だけど・・・」

Translation: This magazine wants to capture Cardcaptor Sakura!!
“If the anime did return, it would be a re~make!”
I want to make a new Cardcaptor Sakura, if possible, but…”

Man. I personally love the idea of Studio Madhouse producing a Cardcaptor Sakura remake – I would go crazy. I loved the classic anime (which, in my opinion, is just as good as the manga is), but a remake would most likely be more of a direct adaptation of the manga à la Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, which I have no problems with. The inner SyaoSaku fanboy in me would like to see scenes in which they are married, though.

I honestly think this series is underrated, at least in the English blogosphere, where I’ve heard it being called utter garbage more often than not. I jumped into the anime with very low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised.

Fanime 2013 Overall Experience (and the horrors of Yaoi Bingo)

No, I didn't go to the maid cafe. T_T

Truth be told, I was looking forward to going to Anime Expo 2013 during the earlier parts of the year – going to Fanime again this year was somewhat of a last minute thing. We ended up not having enough funds to afford going to LA and spending our time at the convention as pre-registered members. Fanime’s always fun, so I didn’t mind much. However, it did sour the experience in another way. Since we couldn’t book a room at the Marriott, Hilton, or any other nearby hotels this year (by the time we decided to go to Fanime again, all the reservations were full), we had to book a room at a motel called the “Hotel Elan” (yes, they call themselves a hotel) which was somewhat of a distance away from the San Jose Convention Center. It wasn’t too bad of a place nor was it miles away, but it was still far enough (approximately one mile) that we had to walk over there and take the bus every morning. We never got to the con at the earliest possible time, and since the neighborhood was pretty damn dangerous, we never stayed out too late. From now on, we’re definitely making plans for Fanime every year except when we’re 100% sure we’re going to another con.
