Capturing Cards was only the beginning...

Once upon a magic night, an English sorcerer mixed Western wizardry with Eastern enchantments to create a magical deck of cards called the Clow Cards. These cards were hidden inside a dusty old book for decades, their powers virtually wasted. Then one fateful day, a young girl named Sakura Kinomoto discovered the book in her father'

Dude, the last time I read this book was YEARS AGO. YEEEEEEEEEARS AGO, meaning the 5th grade.
And I'm a freshman in high school right now, so that's saying something, right??

But I do remember Cardcaptor Sakura. And I liked this series, especially the MOTC series.

Since I can't remember EVERY SINGLE BIT of Cardcaptor Sakura: MOTC, I will try to make this review short and snappy. (And...I have to read like 18 other books and one of them is due to my school library TOMORROW!!!! HYAH!

I love Cardcaptor Sakura, which is why I want to be honest about my opinion that this volume is lacking. It spends almost the entire time setting up the premise for certain events and not nearly enough time with the events itself. What saves it from a two star rating is the fact that no matter how dismal a scene is, the characters are brilliantly written and their complex relationships are endearing. I hope I find the next volume to be more of a classic fun Cardcaptor story.

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

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.

When I was younger I watch the anime for this manga and I adored it.
Now after reading it I can't help but love it more!
I would say this is one of the rare true childrens manga out there that can be read by all ages.

Wooo! Things have gotten interesting! I think I get who this Eriol punk is, but I hate him anyway. He's just that typical nice-to-face-but-trying-to-kill-you-secretly character. Plus, he's got the boring nerdy look and no thanks to that in most circumstances.

My favorite part was in this volume was when Sakura was asking Yue if he remembers the things that happen to Yukito since Yukito doesn't remember being Yue... He said he does! LMAO!! It was the BEST AWKWARD MOMENT~!<3 xD It gave me a bel

Now Sakura is the Master of all the Clow cards! But trouble is still on the way!
Although this is marked as the first in a series, it is actually the continuation of Cardcaptor Sakura, Vol. 1 (Cardcaptor Sakura, #1) by CLAMP.

For my review or rather comments regarding Cardcaptor Sakura, please see here:

PS - I like "The Master of the Clow" part of Cardcaptor Sakura. We meet Eriol, learn more about Clow Reed & the past, and most importantly, Sakura & Syaoran's relationship begins to grow.

I love all of Cardcaptor Sakura. It was one of those series that got into manga/anime, back in elementary school. I remember taping episodes of the horrible English dub on VHS over the weekend and obsessively rewatching them during the week. The volumes published in English under the title "Master of the Clow" are the strongest by far and a great reread.

Eriol, Ruby Moon and Spinel Sun are some of my favorite characters, period. I love the way Eriol brings out all of Li's possessive tendencies. I

On one hand, Sakura's battles in this series seem to be higher-stakes as her magic has become more powerful, but this isn't Harry Potter - we know she's going to win and that everything is going to turn out all right. The focus of this sweet series is on the excellently-drawn relationships among the characters. Never syrupy or sappy, Sakura's friends, family, teachers, and even her estranged grandfather are shown as good people who are a source of strength for her and each other. This is one of ...more

Reading this was like a wave of nostalgia. As a kid who watched the anime, this really made me happy as it picked off just before where I left off (in the anime of course).

Eriol is introduced, and he's always been a strange favourite of mine, especially Yue and Yukito. I'm quite glad for these characters to have appeared.

There is still a lot I don't know about the series, so I can't wait to read the rest!

I read this in maybe 2nd grade, and it got me started on anime and manga. The art is adorable, the storyline is cute, and every book gives you an important lesson that 5th grader Sakura has learned along her journey along becomeing a magical girl(??)
Also I don't think anybody dies like puelli madoka magica.
puelli madoka magica was just sad

- This picks up right after the first series ends.

- Does Tomoya have a crush on Sakura? I'm confused.

- I can't believe what is going on with the new kids in town! Craziness!

- I liked the bit about a Teddy Bear's birthday! So cute! I'm going to start giving birthdays to teddy bears.

- I liked Sakura's last costume.

Eriol's cute! And devious! And I love blushing Li-kun! Though I have to wonder why Eriol's so cruel to Shaolan when basically, Shaolan is his... uh, grandson? Interesting. Also, every time Toya opened his mouth to tell Yukito... something... someone interrupted them. It was so frustrating! Looking forward to vol. 8!

I accidentally ended up reserving Cardcaptor Sakura: Master of the Clow at the library instead of the original Cardcaptor Sakura series. I enjoyed the art and the story, so I'm looking forward to reading Cardcaptor Sakura from the beginning.

Wonderful and adorable and so much fun to read! Probably CLAMP's most well-known work, for a good reason. It's a really great manga. I sort of wish this had been my first CLAMP, because Tsubasa's so much more enjoyable having read CCS...
