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.

Note: Won the Seiun Award in 2001.

I have to say, this is one of my favorite mangas. The manga is different from the anime so whatever you read in the manga, some of it wont be in the anime D: Like the yaoi! D: That saddened me a lot ;_; but! There are hints of shounen-ai! Uwah! <3

Anyways this is a series for younger readers but its still a good series if you want a shoujo manga. Its got beautiful artwork, the plot is original, the characters are developed, and there are plot twists! I've only read this series once but I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cute series! Clamps artworks are very good and worth any money you have to spend!

This is one of my all time favourites as a kid and even now. I think it's the best the second time you read/watch it because you are able to catch all those hints that you couldn't the first time.

BUT please understand that when CLAMP made this manga, they wanted to make a manga that minorities will feel comfortable with. Therefore, although love is portrayed in this series as very pure and naive(no kisses or very explicit things), and older audience will be able to detect some relationships that aren't necessarily acceptable in society.

If you are familiar with the works of CLAMP and you like them, then you won't be dissapointed.
But if you haven't read anything by CLAMP before and don't know to expect, please understand that you have to have an open mind in order to be able to fully appreciate the wonder that this series is. If you're a close minded fellow that is only looking for a magical girl manga/anime, then please reconsider that this may not be the series for you.

I'm not trying by any means to stop anyone from trying to get involved with this series, but I would like this series to avoid as many comments calling it "disgusting" as possible cause it was truly heart warming.

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

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.

Beautiful art and story, as expected from Clamp.
Although this is supposively targeted at a younger audience, it does have various mature themes that raise an eyebrow. Honestly, when i first read/watched this when i was in elementary school i didn't pick up on any of those themes-- haha. Naiveness.

THE anime/manga that introduced me to the anime/manga world!! I dont care what people say about sailor moon or DBZ kicking starting anime for American girls and boys, CCS is epitome of the anime/manga industry...Do i sound bias? Yep but without CCS leaving me such a great impression to anime/manga i doubt i would have ventured thus far into this industry. Plus kudos for CLAMP to be unafraid of adding subtle hints of shonenai and shojoai (I dont understand why ppl exclaim that there MUST be warnings for them -_- )as well as plausible love triangle and good love development transition. 10 out of 10! What else would it be?

i loved this manga from the bottom of my heart, it was one of my first ones, and i was so into it i never wanted to end. i cried that at the ending of cardcaptor sakura, not the master of the clowd. anyway, i used to spent the whole day reading it, watching it, or making video clips with music over it.
i love the two main character, the way how they are so innocence, yet do strong when they battle, i love how CLAMP changed the main characters clothes everytime she battles. I never have thought that it dragged or rushed. i thought CLAMP nailed this manga.
the plot was just carefullly planned out, everything clears out at the end (master of the clowd)
and also if ur looking for something that is action, with fast moving magic, then this is not it, they is no super super evil person in this manga.
it is one of my childhood books.
if could watch the anime too! biggrin

This is the one of the first few anime I've ever watched when I was a kid.

I didn't realize it was a manga until afterwards. It's a really cute series that I think everyone should try. Sakura is a likable heroine (even though I believe she's a Mary-Sue). You can't really dislike the girl. When I was a kid, I began to imitate the way she twirls her staff by using a tree branch. (Eventually, it stuck to me as a habit and I still twirl my pencil in class during those long lectures.)

Throughout the manga, you get happy, sad, you 'squee'... it's a very nice series.

One of the first mangas I've read, and my first CLAMP series ;;; So many feels... I've read and re-read it so many times I've lost count omgg.
CLAMP is indeed very amazing when it comes to their mangas because CCS portrays what real love is very well, and not just the average boyxgirl romance. They gave us the pure love between SakuraxSyaoran, the implicit (and unrequited) love Tomoyo has for Sakura, ToyaxYukito's shounen ai, the big age gap romance between RikaxTerada and EriolxKaho, and so on. Many taboos for a child-oriented manga, but portrayed so innocently it makes you accept them without any problems (for me anyway).
This series influenced my standards for shoujo A LOT. After seeing how shy and cute Syaoran is when he's with Sakura, I just ended up searching for more mangas in which the male protagonist falls in love first ;A; Also, the "as long as the person I love is happy, I'm happy as well" may be cliche and/or cheesy for some people, but I JUST LOVED IT. That's indeed what true love is, in my opinion. Wow, CCS just make me so sappy pfft.
ToyaxYukito was the first ever boyxboy relationship I've encountered in a manga (I was like 7 or 8 when I first read this series) and I'm so glad it was. That made realize that gay relationships aren't wrong or whatever some people say, because they should have the same rights to fall in love as well. That's a very nice point of this manga, because it teaches kids that real love CAN exist in every kind of people.
This is totally a manga I would want to recommend to everyone, not just kids, because it's awesome ;~;
