As the Cardcaptor, it is Sakura's job to use her powers to track down the missing Clow Cards before disaster befalls the Earth. Up until now, she assumed that this quest was a secret to everyone but her and her two...more

I cringed through the entire volume. First there was the discovery that Sakura's parents married when her mother was a 16-year-old high school student and her father was her teacher. And then there's the even more squicky subplot of one of Sakura's classmates (in fourth grade) apparently accepting a proposal from one of their teachers. (Did I mention that they're fourth graders?) Next to that, Tomoyo and her mother's shared legacy of unrequited love for a cousin can almost pass you right by. (Th...more
- I am not ok with teachers going out with students, especially 4th graders!! EW!! I can' believe Sakura's dad and mom had a teacher/student relationship too!

- This new guy, Syaoran, is weird! I'm still trying to figure out if he is gay or if there is something else about Yukito that hasn't been revealed yet.

- The illustrations still crack me up!

- That sword card is really cool! I want that one!

- I don't quite understand all the different outfits Sakura has to wear when she goes out to find a C...more

When asked what my favorite manga-ka is, I'd have to say CLAMP without a moment's hesitation. When asked what my favorite manga by CLAMP is, though, I hesitate. It's so hard to narrow it down.

Ultimately, though, CCS is definitely in my top five. This manga is so damn charming. The main character is wonderful, delightful, and so strong, her supporting cast is memorable and beautiful. The manga covers many themes and motifs, but the one that's most compelling to me is the concept that love comes...more
Loved it! So cute and loved the animation. This seemed to be less focused on actually figuring out the card and had a quick fight and more focused on he drama around the main characters.

A new student, Li Syaoran, transfers to Sakura's school and immediately begins harassing her! Syaoran is a distant relative of Clow Reed and has come to collect the Clow Cards from Sakura, even by force. Kerberos tells Sakura that the cards belong to her now and he has no right to take them from her, but he just won't give up. He tries to steal the unclaimed cards, and now he acts as if he were in love with Sakura's crush, Yuki! Syaoran is already Sakura's biggest rival yet!

Am i the only one totally weirded out by the multiple student-teacher relationships in this manga?
In this volume, it turns out that everyone Sakura has ever met is gay. I approve!
A very fun, light-hearted classic in the "magical school girls" genre of manga.
Things that make me happy: queer presentation.

Qué sorpresa, una vez más descubro que no tengo marcados la mitad de series que juraría haber readeado hace bocha. Y, como siempre, copipasteo una reseña pedorra y genérica que no dice nada para disminuir el riesgo de que barran con todo otra vez.
Pero que conste que la serie en general me pareció muy divertida, creo recordar.
Love this series! The manga greatly differs from the anime though and I'm a little surprised at some of the stuff that I hadn't seen before. Especially that weird exchange between a fourth grader and her teacher.
Me pareció un poco más flojo que el primer tomo por lo que le doy un 3'5.
sakura es un personaje que se me hace muy entrañable.
hay una nueva incorporación lo que hace más atractivo el manga.
Okay... This volume definetely gives a whole new dimension to what I thought the story was like. (view spoiler)...more
The second volume of Card Captor Sakura continues Sakura's quest to collect all of the Clow Cards. We get new characters introduced in this volume, the most interesting being Syaoran Li, a decedent of Clow Reed who is also a Card Captor. One of the most unique aspects of this series is the way that it handles unconventional relationships, and unconventional feelings. For example, there is never a big deal made about a young male character having an innocent crush on an older male character, it i...more
Read from the Dark Horse omnibus editions. Added separately for the sake of my reading challenge.

I am a big fan of this manga/anime (hello, does my nickname say anything?) It's true that the issues it mention are a little controversial (Chiharu with her teacher? WTF! Li in love with Yukito? WTF! the obsessive love of Tomoyo's mother for Nadeshiko? WTF! etc, etc.) but this manga/anime is at the same time so funny, so sweet. Years ago I read this manga and watch the anime, and 10 years have passed and I am still a fan! My favorites characters so far in this volume are Sakura (duh), Touya, Yuk...more
I have so much love for this manga, insane love! For real. I know that the whole card catching part is quite silly but the awesome characters make up for it. And all the slash vibes too, of course. Toya loves Yukito, Yukito loves Toya, Tomoyo loves Sakura... It's so cute! And the way Shaolan blushes every time Yukito smiles at him! And then there's the quite touching relationship that Toya and Sakura have, how they bicker and insult each other, but God forbid someone tries to hurt the one or the...more

I've read this entire series and I would recommend it as a "first manga" for any young manga readers. It was made by CLAMP who does alot of intese fantasies which are all very "kidfriendly". Although, the teen version of CCS, Tsubasa Chronicle, may be al little violent depending on the age of the reader.
This was persomally my first manga. I don't remember it super well, but I started reading it when I was about 11 or 12. I do recommend it to anyone who is interested in taking up the manga hobbi...more
Ok. Things I really like about this series so far. The unstoppable adorableness. Sakura. The fact that basically no one in this series is heterosexual.

Things I don't like: um, the pedophilia?? I could get past finding out that Sakura's mother married her teacher when she was 16. Not saying it's ok, but I decided I would gloss over it. But her classmate Rika's relationship with her teacher is just crossing the line. Rika and Sakura are in 4th grade! In what universe is that OK? Gross.
The addition of the mysterious Shaoran Li character who appears to be about Sakura's age and has entered Sakura's class as an exchange student from China adds a definite comedic element to the series as they're rivals in both love and magic. I believe I already know his deal because my bff gave me a thorough run-down of the series before I started so I can only say, he will be interesting. :) It's fun to see him compete with Sakura for Yukito's attentions especially.
The first volume was so good. Why did they have to introduce pedophilia and incest and other nasty stuff to this otherwise adorable and innocent manga??

That grossed me out so much, I contemplated giving this volume fewer stars. But I really loved the part with the flower card. It's morbid, but I'm fascinated by the idea of suffocating in a mess of flowers. too much sweetness is deadly. But of course flowery Sakura herself saved the day!
Cardcaptor Sakura is a series that seems like it's targeted for children, but the casual way they handle everyone's (some really) unconventional romantic feelings and relationships can be shocking to many if they're not used to it. I can appreciate the fact that it really doesn't discriminate love, though, even if I'm not entirely certain I'm behind some of the more extreme ones.
I can definitely see where they drew the line between anime and manga with this series.
Sakura's adventure continues on the second volume, collecting the Clow cards. Shaoran is introduced in this volume as Sakura's rival not just in collecting the cards but as well with Yukito (???). Sakura's magic is getting stronger as she collects more card.
Tiny Syaoran + sailor boy uniform = MOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(almost distracts ya from the whole 4th Grade Teacher is a Pedophile thing >.> )
Here's where she met Li Shaoran. Omg, I'm trying not to fangirl so much since I already have know what's coming next. And it's still a mystery for me what's the real relationship between Touya and Yukito. And also, gender identity crisis for Li.
[Ch. 6-10]

I'm surprised at the number of things they changed in the anime. A lot of the fights are different and you see some scenes that aren't in the anime. Overall, pretty good. I can't wait to read the next volume.
