4.5/5 stars

A great finish to an amazing story. A little bittersweet, of course.

What amazes me the most is that these series were published (the last book in 2000, so they started way before then), and the diversity in these books is ginormous. You think it - Sakura has it. It is the most inclusive and accepting cast of characters that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. And the best part? Everything has such a natural flow - there's no awkwardness, there's no labels, nobody is ever put in

A beautiful end to a beautiful series.

World: The art is fantastic. The final couple of issues are just simply gorgeous. The world building is solid and only there enough for the emotional story. There are bits and pieces called back from the past which is good.

Story: Well paced and full of character moments. Where thee first half of the series was about finding the cards the second half is about the characters and I love that. The final mystery and the confrontation was done well, a bit pacey
Oh I'm so happy with how this concluded! Even if I am sad to see this series finishing (aside from the new part of it starting soon?), I am glad it ended the way it did.

I love (view spoiler)

The 4th volume of the CCS Omnibus edition contains issues 10, 11 and 12 and it’s just the most epic conclusion ever. I saw the anime, but there were some things that are different from it in the manga, so I adored to get re acquainted with the story and the characters in a new light. I loved the secret behind Sakura’s dad (DID NOT SEE THAT COMING) and how the battle with Eriol was developed.

The 11 manga was brilliantly done; the story is so powerful and full of friendship. It has a beautiful of

Oh goodness, I can hardly describe how joyfully satisfying this volume and the ending of the series was. I've read a lot of shoujo manga featuring romance, love, and cuteness, but this is the most genuine and sincere depiction of those themes I've ever had the pleasure to read. I was brought nearly to tears at times, at others I laughed, I felt suspense, and throughout the chapters my heart was warmed. If you've enjoyed the series up to this point, you won't be disappointed with its conclusion. ...more

This series tied up in such a nice little bow. Everyone found love and it just tugged on my heart strings!!! A new favorite for sure.

I loved the full color additions in the omnibus, and wish there was a full color version of this manga. It would make all of the flow cards so striking.

Can we also just talk about how Yue will always be bae? ❤️

Ahh this was so cute...
I wish there was more, but I came to the end. I know Tsubasa features Li and Sakura, but I am not a fan of it.

Review to come eventually!

And back to being rather boring. The big bad wasn't a big bad after all. Sakura saves the day, and half the volume is about her enduring love for Sayoran which isn't nearly as fleshed out as it is in the anime. Also, just not as adorable now that I'm older than 13. The designs and concepts of CSS are amazing, but the end product was actually pretty boring. And gross at times... I liked the adventure feel to the anime more than this weird rumination on love that went no where. ...more

WHAT?! IT'S FINISHED?! Why?!?! There are no words to describe how much I loved this series. Like wow. It was so cute and I just ate up book after book. It's the type of series that at first you're not sure if they're gonna be good or not so you borrow them from a friend and after the first book you realize that you NEED to buy them. Like I can re-read this series over and over again and not get tired of the characters and the plot. Like I need to buy these now because it's just a series that id ...more

This volume concluded this series of CCS in a somewhat predictable but still satisfying way. As usual, the artwork was absolutely stunning (especially the colored pages!) and this was a fun read.

Cardcaptor Sakura is the perfect example of a series that gets better and better as it goes on, and manages to end even more beautifully.

I expected romance of a sort going into this series, but I didn't expect it to explore so many different kinds of love--the love one has for family, the love they have for friends, the way love that one has for different people can be so similar and yet so immensely different at the same time, the way loving someone sometimes means seeing them happy with someo

This was so much better than Book 3.

I remember from the anime that they never explained much of the reason of how Sakura was able to become a Cardcaptor but also the anime had skipped some parts which left me with so many questions afterwards.

Sakura has definitely evolved since Book 1, she is capable to use her magic to help save her friends but also trusts the people around her and it ables them to help her even more. I really liked that nobody told her how Shouran felt towards her and when he

“When I think about Syaoran-Kun, my chest gets tight. When I wonder what Syaoran-Kun thinks about me... my chest gets even tighter. So how can I have no idea what I feel... even though it's my own heart...?"
'We're our own worst judges. Most especially when it comes to our hearts. But even so, only you can know... who is truly in your own, Sakura-Chan.”

I gave all omnibuses 5 stars but this was perhaps my least favourite? But what does that even mean in a five-star series like this? Not much, it's all great, really. I think I expected a bit different kind of conclusion to the Eriol & co. part. It wasn't bad, don't get me wrong! The message it had, believing in yourself and your friends and all that is very lovely of course, and I liked how everyone played their part in it.

But what I like is how everyone in CCS is so lovely and loving, and how i

I rounded up the stars this time because a peek at the redubbed anime made me realize that the book is better. :) We almost made it through the book without teacher/student love, but it came back for the last hundred pages with an all new awkward relationship. I have to say at least all the relationships in this book never progress past hugging, and most don't even include that so it's only inappropriate in word, not visually, but that just means you could really not include it at all...

Being the final volumes of the original Cardcaptor Sakura manga this omnibus book is a splendid addition to anyone's collection. With an assortment of color pictures and bright white pages in an over-sized print the cost of 20 dollars for 3 manga is a bargain.

In this volume the truth is laid bare as Sakura realizes her true feelings for several characters in the story, Eriol's motivations come to life at last, and Sakura's final trial awaits her as she meets her destiny. If you have been followi

Cardcaptor Sakura is one of the quintessential magical girl mangas, and it has it all - cute animal followers, magical contracts, and interesting battle scenes. It is also about the daily life of a happy-go-lucky elementary school student. Not a single character in this manga has bad intentions, and the tone of the entire manga is of hope and kindness. The manga lacks conflict that seriously endangers its characters, and as a result, Sakura's choices have few serious stakes. That being said, Car ...more

When I was a kid, Cardcaptor Sakura was a household name. Anyone who has TV knows what it is. It is every little girl's aspiration, which was why I promised myself that when I get older, I'll watch it and understand the true essence of its story.

Fortunately I was able to give myself the opportunity (not to watch but) to read the manga. The 50-chapter manga satisfied the childhood craving that has been inside me all these years. Finishing the story made me feel like my soul has been washed with

God I am so happy that I finally know this story in its (original) completion.

Cardcaptor Sakura was such a big part of my childhood and as an adult my love for this story has not lessened. I love all the characters and I loved seeing Sakura's journey unfold. I especially loved seeing an older Sakura at the end of the book it made me feel like a proud parent. I cannot wait to eventually continue this story with the Clear Card arc.

I definitely recommend this series to everyone of all ages. It is

Truly wonderful and oh so cute. So many cool esoteric concepts explored in this book.

- clow cards (tarot/oracle like cards)
- magic
- past lives
- Sun/moon duality along with east/west magic
- Meaning of love through Tomoyo's unconditional for Sakura, Yukiko and Toya, Li and Sakura and even Rika and Tereda.
- Integrating darkness and light
- Spells including the affirmation "I know I'll be alright"
- Inner strength and beauty of the heart
- Seers and divination

Truly a wonderful conclusion

A great conclusion to a wonderful series! Five stars.

This series is all about love, family, and friendship, and it really hit home in this last volume. I highly recommend this series. The art,story, and characters are wonderful and enchanting. I think I might like the anime slightly better, but the manga is just as good and not as censored.

A must read for shoujo manga fans!

Incredibly cute Shojo manga the art and characters are fantastic .
It does have a few issues such as the Teacher/Student relationships particularly with characters in the background that of a 10 year old elementary Student and her Teacher which I thought was rather disturbing .
But overall a good short sweet manga.

Even though all of the art is really beautiful, I could tell that the pacing at the end was off because single sentences would take up an entire page with huge speech bubbles and art. It was all very beautiful to look at, but clearly the CLAMP team was padding the space after the story was finished.

I did love the ending, it made me tear up a little.
