Cardcaptor Sakura

This is one of my favourite anime of all time, and is probably the series that got me properly into liking anime as a teenager. The manga is lovely, but this series actually does a pretty good job of translating it to the screen- it's definitely a must-watch if you like plucky little girls, magic and jokes! And even if you don't, Sakura (the heroine of this series and of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle- she's the girl in my avie) will probably own your heart by the end of the series anyway:
Bonuses: very, very prettily-drawn manga boys (in true CLAMP- the authors of the manga- tradition), a perfect voice cast (watch this in the original Japanese if you can), and cute opening/closing songs.

SUMMARY:
______________________________

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.

________________________________

They left out the part where Kero looks like a stuffed toy with wings, but that's a fairly accurate summary. And for those of you who like Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle but haven't seen this already, it's a must- Syaoran and Sakura are adorable as children!

Re: Cardcaptor Sakura

I've seen a few episodes, but I've never really seen the series from start to finish.

Re: Cardcaptor Sakura

... I love Cardcaptor Sakura...
I can't stand the english dub, but I have the entire series subbed on DVD =)
.... So much stuff was cut out of the dub... some episodes were cut right in half, and attached to the ends of other episodes... And the order of the episodes for the dub was changed O,O (What I thought was one of the later episodes, turned out to be episode 3 O.O)
I'm a huge CLAMP fan... I've got just about everything they've ever done... xxx holic is my all time favourite CLAMP series

Eurgh, the names in the English dub make me cringe! And I must say, you're so lucky to have subbed DVDs- the licence has expired and now CCS DVDs are so tough to find....but it was such a great show.

Re: Cardcaptor Sakura

I used to watch the anime all the time. When the WB was still on, they played it. I loved watching it. It's been over the past few years I've started reading the manga and enjoy that just as much as the show.

Re: Cardcaptor Sakura

I loved it when I was a kid! It was one of my favourite shows, along with Poke'mon of course. I used to recite all her lines when she's doing the card thing.
