4/5 stars

This series is so pure it warms my heart. Sakura exudes warmths and it is impossible not to feel it seeping through the pages.

While the plot on this one was a bit choppy, I really loved how character relationships are progressing and evolving. The art was very beautiful and moving, as usual. The Wood and Dark cards are drool worthy.


"I don't want to be your master. I want to be your friend."

Some parts were hilarious and literally had me laughing and other parts were so heartfelt and emotional that I could feel my heart breaking and tears close by.

I still love these characters and the interactions and I love seeing more in depth stuff as this series continues. I grew to really like Kaho Mizuki. I'm not sure how I feel about (view spoiler)

Art is fantastic but it is indeed a but choppy.

World: The art is beautiful and full of characters, classic Clamp. The world building is solid, it's not overly deep and complex and just shows enough for the story to take place. That being said it is still fun.

Story: I watch the show first so ready this again also reminded me how it was a but choppy and rushed in story and character moments. Where the show was draggy and filled with filler this book does not stop. It's still very fun and beautif

Just such a fun and addictive read. This ends the first arc, so roll on the third volume!

I really liked this "volume" more than the first. Less hand-holdy (as in, not as much 'SIGN POINTING AT CHARACTER INDICATING THAT'S WHO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT'), more background on characters, less of the creepy student-teacher relationship business (or more like barely any mention of it), some good character development.

I understand why this series has become such a beloved classic, apart from the weird stuff and the childishness. It's still a great series for practically any age.

One huge plus for

This second book in the CCS Omnibus Edition includes the 4, 5 & 6th issues in the series. The 5 and 6 mangas are my favorite so far, because there are a lot of events and deep moments in there. Basically it all comes full circle in the 6th manga, so I’m not really sure how it’s gonna keep going in some ways. The story is brilliant and wonderful and it’s different from the anime in some parts, so I reading it like it’s the first time. I completely adore Sakura, 5 stars to this amazing follow up!

At the end of the last Omnibus Sakura, Syaoran, and Tomoyo found themselves suddenly stuck inside the immensely confusing and challenging Maze card. Using methods available to them it seems impossible to overcome the challenge when suddenly an ally arrives to find them who is tied to Sakura's fate and shows them the most direct route to the exit so the card can be caught (it is a smashing success.) We also get some flashbacks of Toyo and Kaho's past, a school field trip to the beach, a festival ...more

They are really doubling down on that inappropriate student/teacher relationship stuff. They're not at all necessary to move the plot forward either so it's definitely something they just wanted to include. This is more a book about relationships than magic. That's good and bad, the characters are all entertaining, but the agenda of the relationships could be off-putting. Are they really hoping to encourage 10 year olds to date their teachers though?

I think they missed the chance to stretch thi

this volume forms the second half of the card captor arc of cardcaptor sakura. this volume had a lot of card catching fun as well as some fun reveals about major characters. even though i have read this volume befor a few years back i didn't remember a majority of the twists which made them even more fun to read. the art style is interesting, even though this series has been around for a while the art style is pretty good and has aged well. this can be best seen with the clow cards and the actio ...more

Such a well written and drawn manga! "Cardcaptor Sakura" is probably the most interesting masterpieces of CLAMP group and it'll never get dull nor outdated because it is so detailed, so beautifully created that I believe it will capture readers' attention long after everything else will get boring. CLAMP created a world full of magic and beauty and I must say, even if the mian character is around 13 years old, it still connects with me, somehow.
Sakura is such a loveable character, even if somet

An enjoyable continuation of the series, but again ruined by reference to a creepy and deeply troubling relationship between a 10 year old girl and her school teacher. I HATE that this is part of the story (even the very minor part that it is) because it really ruins something, that is otherwise a fun and happy manga. It's probably worse that it treats it like no big deal and makes one random reference to it across the whole 500 pages- WHY INCLUDE IT? IT'S SO UNNECESSARY!!!

Soooo good getting back into this series! I need books 2 and 3 NOW! Haha. Very easy and fun to fly through and it is pretty addictive so get ready to want to binge these books. The art is absolutely gorgeous and the story is exciting and, I have to say, there are so so many cute little side stories. One thing I love about Cardcaptors as well is that in these books the characters are constant and each have their own purpose- I enjoy seeing them all grow and pop up all the time instead of random c ...more

“It's light may be small now... but it burns with the strength of all your heart.”

So many different things happened, that it's almost too much to process. I mean, all of the Clow cards have finally been captured, and we got some really nice developments between Syaoran and Sakura (I think he might be crushing on her a little bit!). My favorite chapter was definitely the one about the play of Sleeping Beauty, it had the right amount of cuteness, comedy, and story progression. I can't wait t

It's always such a delight to return to CCS, especially since I've lately been in need of some happy, fluffy shoujo.

This omnibus installment wraps up the first half of the manga series, ending with the reveal (view spoiler)

A new teacher at Sakura's school is hiding magical powers from everyone but her, and soon reveals herself to be a shrine maiden - and if Sakura wants to continue gathering the Clow cards, she will have to figure out what she is willing to sacrifice for those she loves! CLAMP continues this classic series with more action, mystery and heart than ever before. What other secrets lay within the hunt for the escaped beasts? ...more

I'm really enjoying the series to the point that I actually started watching the anime despite school and everything. It is just so much, I personally really enjoy childish things like Sailor Moon and Fancy Lala it's just so pure to watch/read and this is just so colorful and vibrant and the characters become so much more interesting here. It is way too good for a childrens' story, I mean the amount of plot twists were so wow. ...more

I loved all of the illustrations and the full color pages; I think this manga is exceptionally well drawn.

The pacing of this omnibus isn't my favorite. At some points it feels like things happen really fast and I wish it had been a little bit more balanced.

My favorite part was definitely Sakura and Li both admitting that when they met Yukito it was love at first sight. It was a really cute scene!

Okay, so the anime for this was way better than the manga. It's hard to get a sense of time, and nothing really happens in this second volume. The characters are pretty one dimensional, and there's even more creepy adult/minor relationships :l But Sakura has all the cards now and she defeated Yue, so yeah? Meeeeeh... ...more

One thing I was not expecting from the Cardcaptor Sakura manga was that it would be so different from the anime, especially because they are made by the same company. I still really enjoyed this volume. I love the message and the characters, the plot and the art. It’s just all so good and nostalgic. A great manga series!

The continuation of Sakura’s adventures of collecting cards and daily life is thrilling and yet so very much heartwarming. I just love these characters! Definitely very excited to read book 3 and very curious what path CLAMP takes this story in.

Also, as an elementary school teacher I love that this is a series I can share with my students. Great introduction to “magna”.

I can't remember what I gave vol. 1. This was more of the same. A cutesy diversion that makes me nostalgic for something that probably never existed. I wish these drawings were colored in. It's like reading a silent movie otherwise. Some of the English translated is a bit sloppy. But, descriptivism and all that. ...more
