The back of my ARC version of this copy says "The success of this book depends on influencers like you." Look at you, book, trying to get on my good side by making me feel like I'm the book blogger equivalent of Kyle Jenner - it's working, BTW. Don't stahp.

I haven't actually read any Cardcaptor Sakura, which is a travesty, because she's supposed to be the quintessential magical girl and I hear she's got great cross-over appeal for people wh

I was familiar with Cardcaptor Sakura because it has a TV adaptation that was released in the 90's. I used to watch the said anime when I was a kid but I wasn't able to watch the whole series. This new season in the famous Japanese manga is a treat for fans of the said manga and anime. Although the story and the characters could be a bit childish, it is just some of the reasons why there are a lot of people who like it.

"El regreso de Card Captor Sakura"

Esta reseña es mas que nada informativa, ya que solo existe un capitulo de la serie y no hay mucho que valorar, y creo que a alguien le puede interesar, podéis comentar abajo, si veías la serie hace unos años.

Creo que le interesara especialmente a quien viese/leyese card captor en su infancia o actualmente.

El manga es de tipo Magical Girl, pero claro después de lo que paso en Tsubasa Chronicles (view spoiler)

This is the sequel to Sakura Card Captor, when Sakura Kinomoto start junior high scholl. She is excited about the new school, Dad Fujitaka is clueless, big brother Toya enjoy teasing her, and Tomoyo is her best friend. Uh, and Kero wants sweets. So, no changes in that front.

Well, Syoran is back .



And the S Cards kind of get erased.

Je ne suis pas objective... ce tome est super introductif mais quel bonheur! Sakura m'avait manqué! Cela me rappelle tellement mon adolescence c'était génial! Je suis très heureuse de voir que l'histoire reprend le cours de la première série. Tout le monde est au rendez-vous, on reconnait l'humour, les traits de caractère de chacun... on est de nouveau à la maison!!
Je suis toujours autant fan des graphismes, quel plaisir pour les yeux!

I'm mad at CLAMP. There are around 4-5 of their stories that have been hanging over a cliff for years (decades) or are actually in needs of a continuation and they decide to take one of their complete stories, with a very nice, round ending and make a sequel that they'll probably abandon as soon as something sparkly catches there eye.

And yet here I am.

Cause this is still CLAMP and I love them and Card Captor Sakura is one of my favorites.


So yes, this is - as expected - very very cute a

I’ve just finished the first 8 chapters of the new series! I have to say that it seems amazing! It has mystery, love, friendship, kawaii cuteness and magic. I love the fact that there are new especial cards with exciting new powers. I can’t wait to read the next chapters and watch the tv show.
The first manga starts when Sakura Kinomoto is going to high school. We get to see Shaoran, Tomoyo and the gang again. It feels like no time has passed and the warm and fuzzy feeling that SCC leaves you wit
As a girl born in the 90s, Cardcaptor Sakura (in Greek translated as 'The Adventures of Niki' for some weird reason) was one of my favourite TV shows, long before my fascination with Japanese culture seriously began. I would eagerly wake up at 8 every weekend morning to catch the show on TV and I was more than excited when I discovered there was a manga version I could read to my heart's content.

More Cardcaptor Sakura! Saw the anime previous to this, but it's still good. Got to love the beautiful art from Clamp. I want to try out the cheesecake recipe.

The one thing is I'm not usually a fan of the Kodansha in-house translations. It's all fine, but it kind of feels like this could have used just a little more editing just to smooth out the phrasing a little bit.

Magnifico tornare indietro nel tempo e leggere nuovamente le avventure di Sakura, con altri nuovi misteri e carte. È stato uno dei personaggi che mi ha sempre accompagnato durante l'infanzia e cresciuta.

*I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. This is an honest review.*

I am very, very happy that Cardcaptor Sakura is continuing. It’s one of my favorite mangas — the characters are just so sweet and wonderful, so I was thrilled to see volume one of the new series — Clear Card — available as to-read on Netgalley.

Sakura is growing up and is starting middle school know. Syaoran has returned from China and will join her! But, it’s not all a perfect paradise; Sakura ha

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the review copy in exchange for an honest review.

If you know me a little you will know that when it comes to manga CLAMP has written my favorites. While I have a high preference for Tsubasa and XXX Holic, I have always found Cardcaptor Sakura to be such a cute read. So when I saw this on Netgalley I had to go for it.

I am a huge fan of anything Clamp puts out. I remember watching the original Cardcaptors series when it was on t.v., though admittedly the dub was a bit comical. *lol* Suffice it to say, when I saw that there would be a new anime (already watching it on Crunchyroll!) and then that this volume was available on NetGalley, I leaped at the chance to review it.

Since it's been awhile since I've read the earlier books in the series, I was glad there was a recap of characters for the Clow Card arc and t

I have always LOVED all the CLAMP works. Especially Rayearth and Card Captor Sakura. They have a magnificent style and create really imaginative and intricate stories with courageous and magical characters. When I learned that there would be the sequel of the adventures of Sakura Kinomoto I literally jumped for joy despite my 26 years. I was pleased to see Sakura, Tomoyo, Kero-chan, not to mention Syaoran! He was one of my childh

When you're a character in a CLAMP story, your life can't stay normal for too long! Sakura learns that her magical cards aren't finished yet as they reset themselves after a nightmare. Now she's back in the capturing game in this first volume of a new series.

Being honest, I tend to read CLAMP for their art more than their story. The collective of artists is by far one of the most beautiful in the field of comics, and anything they draw immediately grabs my attention. What I found interesting abo

We're just a couple of days from the new anime starting and I'm super psyched! I was even more excited when I found out that there's a manga for the new anime. The art is still as adorable as ever and I felt myself smiling at the feeling of nostalgia that overcame me as I read. I'm really going to enjoy seeing Sakura grow through middle school and become the amazing woman I know she will be. I can't wait to see the outfits Tomoyo designs and how Li/Eriol and all the rest will play into this.

When Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card was announced, I think I screamed. I never expected more Cardcaptor Sakura, even though the dub was formative in a million ways. And now, in Clear Card, we get to go back and see what Sakura's doing now that she's saved the world, made her power her own, become a teenager and started high school!

Protip: everything is going to go horribly wrong, and there is going to be a lot of trouble with additional magical cards, because that's how this series works.

Thank you to NetGalley and Kodansha Comics for providing me with an ARC! All opinions are my own.

I grew up watching Cardcaptor Sakura, so when I heard they were going to continue the story, I almost had a heart attack. Even though I have already seen some of the new episodes from the anime and, therefore, already knew the whole plot, I still liked it. I think it's a solid start for the new arc - it maintains everything I liked about the original story, but adds some new elements that could get a
I don’t have many « nostalgia » feelings with Card Captor Sakura that would affect my reading much.
I remember watching it, and a few years ago I had started reading the original manga but never finished it.
But I have enough understanding to enjoy this new series.
I don’t read many mangas and always enjoy the cute fluffy ones (and the Magical Girls even more) so there is no reason for me not to enjoy that one ;)

The art is beautiful and how cool is it to see the matured looking Sakura Kinomoto. I'm drawn into to the story, eager for more. The art is what makes me give this a "loved it" 5 star review. I'll have to see where the story goes before I can give it a more solid review. The new cards were quite the surprise, too!

This is so cuteee!! Card Captor Sakura was one of my favourite mangas and I want to finally catch up on this story. I'm also noticing how the illustrations look similar to Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles!
I hope CLAMP won't be leaving us in the a void...

Lets start of by saying, I am a huge fan of the original Cardcaptor Sakura arcs and this book certainly wasn't a disappointment.
Beautiful artwork, great translation from the Japanese original and a new twist on the Cardcaptor saga which will have you hungry for the next volume.

Great for seasoned Manga readers and newcomers!
