Storyline

Sakura was a normal fourth-grader until she stumbled upon the book of Clow Cards in her father's library. After accidentally setting the magical cards loose, it's now up to Sakura to catch them all again before they wreak havoc on the entire world! Luckily, she has her best friend Tomoyo, and Kerberos, the guardian of the cards, to help her. But when the help is more interested in costumes and video games than in Clow Cards, what's a young captor to do? And now Sakura has a rival, both in her chase for the Clow Cards and for the affections for her brother's friend Yukito.... Written by Emily McKie <animatrix@hotmail.com>

Anime for beginners!
25 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a 17 year old male and I openly admit to my friends that I loved Card Captor Sakura. It's got the perfect dose of comedy, action and storytelling for a well balanced anime show, throughout all 70 episodes. The movies are excellent as well. And while guys my age may not enjoy this, it's perfect for those new to anime, especially girls. It's got a wide appeal and never gets boring. While it isn't every extremely violent or leaves hanging on the edge of your seat (for some it might), I consider it a job well done by CLAMP. Since the show is about children, it can't get that out of hand anyway. If you're too manly to watch this series, then don't judge it! It's not for you.
