Curiosity is part of any 10-year old's life, but Sakura just broke the seal on a magical book and released all of the mischievous spirits imprisoned on the cards inside! Kero, the “Guardian of the Clow Cards” is horrified to find all of the cards gone and tells Sakura she must become the “Cardcaptor” and retrieve the spirits before they work their mischief in the world.
“I can’t recommend this series highly enough. I first watched it I think fifteen years ago or some number that makes me feel way old. It’s still great. The animation doesn’t feel dated like a lot of older series; it’s very fluid and consistent. The background music’s memorable without being obtrusive. The story’s good. There’s not a single character that I don’t love. And it’s got some of the best Japanese VAs in the business.” – Crunchy Roll
“CCS is a classic. It’s one of those anime that does a great job of blending a light-hearted middle schooler’s life with mystery, magic. There’s action, comedy and even a bit of romance. Although some people may not be able to appreciate the light feel of the anime, it’s a guarantee that most viewers will be enchanted by this superb, sweet and cute 70 episode series. We award Card Captor Sakura with an A for achieving near perfection of virtually every front.” – Anime Evo
“At first glance it looks as if Card Captor Sakura is geared strictly to young girls, however it contains elements that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age or gender, providing they are open-minded enough.” – Anime News Network
