Cardcaptor Sakura

Welcome to my brain

The world of ほえーーーーつ!

闇の力を秘めし鍵よ。真の姿を我の前に示せ。
契約のもとさくらが命じる。
レリーズ!

星の力を秘めし鍵よ。真の姿を我の前に示せ。
契約のもとさくらが命じる。
レリーズ!

Every con­nois­seur of Japan­ese enter­tain­ment (scratch that: enter­tain­ment in gen­er­al) has their per­son­al “best ever”, and for me, it’s undoubt­ed­ly Card­cap­tor Saku­ra. I’m been watch­ing ani­me and read­ing man­ga for over fif­teen years and no series has ever been able to top­ple over Card­cap­tor Saku­ra in my heart. This ani­me and man­ga is unde­ni­ably of one the great­est high­lights of the 90’s — it’s very good and the pro­tag­o­nist is unde­ni­ably the cutest thing you’ll ever wit­ness in an ani­me ever.

Ever.

The ten­der lov­ing care CLAMP and Stu­dio Mad­house gave to this series, plus the over­whelm­ing nos­tal­gia from this being my first sub­ti­tled ani­me series as a child (Drag­on Ball was my first RAW), has turned me into pret­ty much the largest Card­cap­tor Saku­ra nut around. I’m on a quest to blog the entire Card­cap­tor Saku­ra series — from the movies, to the spe­cials — and the orig­i­nal man­ga, among oth­er things relat­ed to the fran­chise.

(Note: The only time you’ll hear me talk about the dread­ed Nel­vana ver­sion, enti­tled Card­cap­tors, is when I’m relent­less­ly mock­ing it.)

Time to get the show on the road. RELEASE!

Ten-year-old Saku­ra lives a pret­ty nor­mal life with her old­er broth­er, Touya, and wid­owed father, Fuji­ta­ka. Or she did, until the day she returned home from school to dis­cov­er a glow­ing book in her father’s study. After open­ing the book and releas­ing the cards with­in, Saku­ra is tasked with col­lect­ing each of these mag­i­cal cards, while try­ing to live the life of a nor­mal fourth grad­er. In the mon­u­men­tal task of col­lect­ing all the cards, Saku­ra must rely on her friends and fam­i­ly, and decide what she finds most impor­tant in life.” — NIS Amer­i­ca, Online Store’s Offi­cial Descrip­ton

One thought on “Cardcaptor Sakura

  1. Eh, to me Card­Cap­tor Saku­ra just got over­rat­ed, it seems like CLAMP has decid­ed to bring back their cash cow (CCS) because its “every­one’s favorite CLAMP series” instead of fin­ish­ing work that should of been fin­ished years ago (X, Legal Drug etc..) I used to love Card­Cap­tor a lot but not I just think peo­ple get over­hyped about it
