Description
Sakura Kinomoto was just an average 4th Grader - loved P.E., hated math - until one day, while looking through her father's library, Sakura found the Clow, an enchanted book designed to hold a set of magical Clow Cards. But when Sakura opened the book, it was empty. Talk about disasters!! Cerberus, the Creature of the Seal, emerged from the cover of the book and told Sakura the cards must be returned to the book. "If the cards aren't in the book, they come to life and do evil!" Kero formed a contract with Sakura making her a Cardcaptor and together with Sakura's best friend, Tomoyo, they embark on a mystical journey to capture all the Clow Cards before the Cards can wreak chaos and destruction.

One of My Childhood Shoujo

As one of my early manga I read, Cardcaptor Sakura is teaching me so many pairing in this world (though long time ago I didn't realize it //brickd) ╭(′▽`)╯
Start from the age gap (older male with younger female to younger male (not really though) with older female) - student teacher, shounen ai, normal straight couple, Oh Goodness! I reaaallyy love it! ♥
Like some people already said, the plot is unique for that era, and cute art making everything more cuter. The ending is good ending, so it count as a plus^^)d
Anyhow, I really like the pairing in this manga. To be more precise, this is the first manga I approve for the shounen ai-- //brickd

Cardcaptor Sakura is one of the best manga i've ever read. i don't regret reading it. it's a beautiful story, love the drawings, story line, couples, everything about it makes me happy. i really want the books, and one day meet the authors who created it. i'm very happy that the anime and manga follows a bit similar, but as long it's a happy ending i'm proud of it xD

I watched the anime when I was a kid and I only recently read it. The manga's as wonderful as the anime. The plot's amazing and the characters well-developed. The art is great, too.
I don't mind the controversial parts. I didn't get it as a kid anyway. The shounen-ai, shotacon , etc. , parts didn't disturb me as these themes usually do. Because it was well-executed.

My first Anime Ever   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

This was the first anime I ever watched---I watched it as a 7 years old kid.

Cardcaptor Sakura left such a large impression on me that I still remember every costume Sakura ever wore, and the cards that she collected--It's been more than 8 years since I first watched it.

And the theme songs? I still sing them in the showers at night. "I am a dreamer, hisomu power~"

Honestly though, the only unsatisfying part for me was how Sakura had an open ending with Syaoran...I knew they would end up together but I WANTED TO SEE IT WITH MY OWN EYES!!!

Anyways, I'll always have a special part of my manga-loving heart dedicated to Card Captor Sakura--and it was the manga that led me to discover Tsubasa Chronicles, XXXHolic, and all those good stuff. LOVE YOU, MY GATEWAY MANGA!

Cardcaptor Sakura was my childhood. I grew up watching it (and Sailor Moon), wishing that I had a Kero and my own Clow Cards. The art is classic CLAMP, and improves drastically in the spin-off Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. Though I have to say, I'll always have a soft spot for how this series was drawn, even if I probably wouldn't rate it as high anywhere else in modern manga. The plot is fantastic. Anything that stays in your memories for more than a decade generally tends to be smile

The manga is not for minors.

These series belongs with the Girl power genre like, Sailor Moon, Wedding Peach & Pre-tear. Like Sailor Moon this manga deals with some mature themes that may not be appropriate for minor readers ages 7-12. So for minors I suggest you stick with the anime adaptation since it reduces some maturity from the manga then after 3-5 years you may read the manga. Anyway the series is a good read. The plot was good. Every character as well as the cards have a purpose. Sakura is a cute heroine & very mature for age plus she have many costume changes than the usual super hero.

A great manga comes with a great anime.

Cardcaptor Sakura is indeed. A great manga comes with such an excellent anime. But since most people from this community are already aware of it's manga. I'll take my review on the anime of Cardcaptor Sakura. The anime isn't really all shoujo-ish for only 9-12 years old kids to enjoy but it is a good watch for all ages (despite it's cute animation style). The anime tells further meaning in each episodes, whenever I watch this anime over again it'll leave me with such a pleasant and warm feelings.

Season 1 :
Introduction season, in this season the whole plot mainly focus on Sakura on how she'll manage to catch the Clow cards. Many supporter characters were introduced in this season.

Season 2 :
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At the very end of season 1, new supporter character (which first are thought as an antagonist character) Kaho Mizuki appear to support Sakura from the back before the "Last Judgment" by Yue (Moon guardian keeper).
Throughout this season, the series has gotten more dark.

Season 3 :
In the last season the series is now more dark and serious,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the first antagonist character in the series were introduced. "Eriol" appear to attack Sakura from the behind in every episodes during this season. At the end, Eriol isn't really an antagonist. At the very end of the anime he has somehow changed to "Supporter characters" group from being an antagonist character.


Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The anime never have an antagonist character/s actually.
But it got many valuable moral values.
I never really appreciate anime this much. I've watch many manga to anime adaptation series but none of them are excellent as Cardcaptor Sakura. If you were to watch this anime NEVER watch the dubs, the original Japanese audio would totally do. In this rare case, I will also leave my 10/10 rate for this series.
I highly recommend this anime for all those serious anime lovers.

the most complete genre so far : Het, Shonen ai, shoujo ai, shota-con, Lolita. I read it because of shonen ai (not that much, though), but I enjoy the story. so much shoujo-ish (Shoujo hero), but it's still fun to read

I read the manga last year (2011) but even after I grew up, I didn't get bored at all while reading it. This anime plus Pokemon, Inuyasha, Shin Chan and Ranma are my best childhood memory.
The manga got a really interesting story, a great development of it, great characters, and such a cute art. It truly deserves the award it won.
