Alternate Versions

There is a Latin American translation for the series, by "Doblaje Intertrack México". It's called "Sakura Card Captors", and the only changes are:
  • 1) a different theme song (by a translated version that remains trough the different opening sequences).
  • 2) a different ending song (by a translated version that remains through the different ending sequences).
  • 3) Kero-chan is simply referred to as Kero.
  • Everything else is the same (the character's names, the order of the episodes, the episode names have a good translation, and the "mature" situations of the series was not edited).

Card Captor Sakura is a great series..
18 June 2001 | by dsmithtcSee all my reviews

I have watched all 70 episodes and both of the Card Captor Sakura Movies.

The entire uncut series has been released by Pioneer in subtitle only versions.

Warner Bros./Nelvana are together showing a chopped up version called Card Captors on the WB! Kids, which has been edited to make Sakura just another character because they wanted to target young boys and girls. Card Captors has started airing on the Cartoon Network. In my opinion if you want chopped up anime watch the dubbed episodes which are not only cut up, but out of order, and most episodes have been skipped. WB! is also about to air the third season so they can show more action in the series.

There are 70 episodes, Tomoyo's special episodes and a few mini movies, one of which was shown with the CCS Movie 2: The Sealed Card called Kero Chan's Big Adventure, which is also included on the DVD.

CCS in japan is a mahou shoujo anime by CLAMP(a well respected manga group), japanese for Magical Girl type anime, example...sailor moon. CCS has better animation and a better plot so watch out for it.
