10-year-old Sakura Kinomoto returns home from a typical day at school, after having a mysterious dream about a book that morning, and hears strange noises coming from her basement, where her father's library is. Upon investigating, Sakura stumbles upon the magical book of The Clow, and breaks its magical seal. Inside of the book, she finds a stack of cards, known as Clow Cards. She accidentally scatters the cards after she says the word "Windy", the name of the first card she picks up.
When the wind dies down, a small yellow creature named Cerberus rises from the book. He introduces himself as the guardian of the Clow Cards, and Sakura, upon scattering them, has woken him up. He tells Sakura that she must now gather all of the Clow Cards to prevent a certain disaster from happening. The story begins here, and with the help of Kero-chan (Cerberus's nickname), and Sakura's best friend Tomoyo Daidouji (who videotapes all of Sakura's adventures and makes all of her costumes), Sakura sets out on her journey to collect all the Clow Cards. Along her way she meets new friends, new enemies, and many challenges.
Story & Playability
This is by far the best story that i have read and watched. It is about a 10 year old girl named Sakura Kinomoto going
down in the basement and opening a book setting the clow cards free thus starting her adventure. She then sets out to
bring the clow cards back. Along the way her best friend tomoyo is taping all the scenes where she captures them. Also
she meets her new rival and the close friend Syaoran. As the story goes she then has to turn them all into sakura cards
so they won't turn into ordinary cards. There is in all 12 books, 70 episodes, and 2 movies. The show is awesome and
the manga is even better. This story is for kids of all ages. If you read it or watch it you will love it. It has
action, adventure, comedy, and romance all in it. It never makes you bored when u are reading or watching it. It
always keeps you interested. The story has so many twist and turns that you will never know what happens next.
Clamp is always know for there great mangas and images. In this manga the artwork is the best i think so far. I love
how sharp the detail is and how you can see in there expression of what they are thinking. Everyone has there one
personalties and you can see it. You can see sakura as this fun, free and innocent girl. Tomoyo is this calm and quiet
girl. Syaoran is strong, brave and courages. Kero can be smart if he wants to but around food he changes. Yue is
quiet and when he says something he means it. In the artwork you can tell how different they are and how they are not.
Every image that you see is clear and sharp so you know what happens. You can tell when someone is sad or when someone
The OSTs are awesome. I listen to them all the time. The songs in the anime are something that you can't hate you will
want to listen to them over and over again. The voicing goes perfect with all the characters. They sound the way the
should sound in the characters personality. The music goes with what is happening in the anime. If something is sad
then a sad sound will play and if something is happy then cheerful music will play. On the first movie the ending song
goes great with when u see the last image of sakura looking outside of the train. Or when she jumps into syaoran arms of
the ending of the movie. The last episode of the anime when they touch each others hand and the song plays it goes with
what is happening.
CardCaptor Sakura will keep you locked in your seat and wanting to see the next episode or read the next book. It has
everything that you can dream of.
It has comedy like when tomoyo makes sakura put a costume on every times she goes into battle or when syaoran was
sleeping beauty and sakura was the prince.
It has action like all the times she has to capture the cards or fight yue in the final judgement days.
It has romance like with Rika and the teacher or Syaoran and Meling or Sakura and Syaoran. Everytime you see someone
blush or cry it makes you said or go Kawaii.
CCS has everyhting that you can think of and more. Clamp made it so you would enjoy it and want to rewatch it over and
over again. Or just pick up the book and read it from the beginning. I love CCS because it never is boring it always
has something that happens. It always has twist and turns that you wouldn't expect to happen.
Clamp did a awesome job and i hope the next mangas that come out turn out like this one. Because so far i think this is
one of the best that they have had.
I say read it once and see what it is like and then you will know what i mean.
