Cardcaptor Sakura (カードキャプターさくら , Kādokyaputā Sakura?), also known as Card Captor Sakura (with the space) and often abbreviated as CCS, is a magical girl manga series from the well-known all-female artist team CLAMP. It is about a girl named Sakura Kinomoto who opens a book one day and becomes the "cardcaptor"-someone charged with collecting the Clow Cards, which were scattered from the book. She is helped by Syaoran Li, Cerberus (nicknamed Kero by Sakura), and her friend Tomoyo Daidouji. Throughout both the manga and anime series, Syaoran and Sakura have feelings for one another, which they finally reveal to each other in the end.

In 2018, a second anime series, Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card, is set take place two years after The Sealed Card movie.

Yue: You have Clow's blood (Syaoran is Clow's descendant) and confuse that with seeing Yukito. You are only attracted to his power of the moon.
Syaoran: Power of the moon?
Yue: Right. If you look deep inside your heart, you will see the one you truely love. Your true feelings.
Syaoran: True feelings? What about…
Yue: Figure out the rest on your own [turns back into Yukito]

Sakura: Thank you Eriol-kun [smiles]
Eriol: Ahh, you're reading Alice? I really like that book.
Sakura: You read it?
Eriol: A long time ago.
Sakura: What's England like?
Eriol: It's rainy and foggy a lot, but I like all the old buildings. Would you like to go to Alice's world?
Sakura: Hoe?
Tomoyo: I guess Hiiragizawa-kun means by taking her to Alice's world, taking her to England and meeting his family.

Sakura: I thought I heard you call my name.[Sakura and Syaoran are sitting by the fire. Earlier, Sakura was scared of Eriol's ghost story, so Syaoran stopped him with the excuse that it was too late.]
Sakura: ありがとうございます。 Arigatou Gozaimasu.(Thank you for today.)
Syaoran: It was nothing.
Sakura: [giggles] You always say "It was nothing" but that's not true because you really are very kind.
Syaoran: [blushing] Why do you say that?
Sakura: Oh look! It's snowing!
[Sakura runs outside and Syaoran watches her dancing in the snow, blushing like a madman]

Sakura, Yukito and the Vanishing Power[edit]

Sakura (in tears): I'm so sorry. Because my magical powers weren't strong enough, you you and Yukito were going to disappear. I'm sorry.

Sakura's Most Beloved Person[edit]

  • "The Maze" and "the Illusion" Cards become Sakura Cards.

Syaoran: [blushing heavily] I'll walk you home
Sakura: Thank you, but can you do me a favor?
Syaoran: What?
Sakura: Let's go to the park. [in the park]
Sakura: Today, I told Yukito-san that I loved him.
Syaoran: Oh..d-did you?
Sakura: [nods] But he said that one I love most wasn't him.
Syaoran: Eh?
Sakura: He said I loved him like I loved my father, but there's someone he loves not like a father. And I'm happy because I love this person too. Tomoyo even said the greatest happiness is when the one you love is happy. And for me, I'm happy knowing Yukito-san will be happy.
Syaoran: [eyes widen]
Sakura: [with tears in her eyes] But for some reason, I can't help but cry. I don't want to cry in front of Yukito-san, because I'm sure it would make him feel bad. I understand what he was saying I really do. [bursts into tears]
Syaoran: [fights with himself mentally, gets off the swing and interrupts]
Syaoran: I know. [hands her a handkerchief] I understand. [smiles]
Sakura: [takes handkerchief] Thank you. [faces Syaoran and then puts her head on his shoulder] Yukito-san said that someday I'll find someone who I love the most, and he will love me the most too. [tears drip from her face]
Syaoran: [looks sad for a moment then smiles] It would be nice if you could find him.
Sakura: [nods]
Syaoran: [closes his eyes and puts his arms around Sakura, whispering] Don't worry, I'm sure you'll find him.
Sakura: [sobbing] Thank you.

Yue: Explain yourself!
Clow Reed: Just what I said, Yue. Today, I will leave this world.
Keroberos: That is not a joke I can laugh at.
Clow Reed: Unfortunately, it is no joke.
Yue: But why!!?
Clow Reed: My time has come.

Eriol: My name in this life is Eriol. In my previous life, I was known as...Clow Reed.
Kero: Clow is dead! Both Yue and I were there when he passed away!!

Sakura: Just like in my dream. And that staff.
Keroberos: Yes, that's the staff Clow used.

Yue: Clow.
Eriol: It's so good to see you again, Yue.
Yue: There was a time when I was forced back into Yukito against my will. Was it you, Clow?
Eriol: I couldn't risk you knowing I was still around.
Yue: If you were going to be reborn, why force Keroberos and I to choose a new master?

Ruby Moon: After going through all that trouble to receive Toya's magical powers, you're still no match for me. So there must be a difference in the masters' powers, after all.

Keroberos: It's not Sakura's fault! I just been caught off guard. I'm dead serious this time!! Prepare yourselves!!

Sakura and Her True Feelings[edit]

Sakura: [walking home and sees Syaoran on the bridge] Syaoran-kun...
Syaoran: [not looking at her and squeezing his hand in nervousness] I wanted to say... when I first came to Japan, my head was so filled with fulfilling my mission and catching the Clow Cards. I didn't care who got in my way. But you, you always cared about the people around you and it showed. I did nothing but get in your way.
Sakura: That's not true! You helped me so much when we were catching the cards!
Syaoran: Well, that's what I wanted to say. Thank you, it's truly a good thing that I met you. :[runs away]
Sakura: Wait Syaoran-kun... I don't know how I feel about you...

Sakura: Syaoran-kun!
Syaoran: But why... [his butler approaches with the teddy bear]
Sakura: 私。。 Watashi... (I..) [Both Sakura and Syaoran blush]
Wei: Syaoran-sama... Take this. [giving Syaoran his teddy bear that Syaoran left on his room]
Sakura: That bear... Can I have it?

Sakura: また会えるね? Mata aeru, ne? (We'll meet again, right?)

About Cardcaptor Sakura[edit]

  • It’s common in girls’ manga for a character to transform, as Sailor Moon and her fellow Sailor Guardians do, and we wanted to incorporate that into ‘Sakura. But many of them always wear the same outfit, so we wanted to add a twist. We feel it’s pretty sad for a girl to wear the same outfit all the time

Sakura and Akiho's Lullaby[edit]

  • Syaoran's four older sisters, who debuted in the original show's first movie, appear here.

Keroberos: The only magicians powerful enough to show the past were Clow, and three others.
Yue: She inherited the Cards from a descendant of Clow Reed, and then transformed them into her own Cards. Now she's still...
Keroberos: I knew her magic was getting so much stronger, but this strong? Sakura's powers have become significantly strong.Her power is immense indeed. We need to contact Eriol.
Yue: No matter what it takes.

Sakura, Rainbows and Grandpa[edit]

Momo: She's starting to synchronize.
Kaito: Yes. She must have had the same dream as the Cards' maker.
Momo: And the contents of the book?
Kaito: Progressing nicely.
Momo: The power of the dream is progressing, but isn't it a bit sooner than expected?
Kaito: The sooner the better. Her protectors have noticed and have already begun to move.

Eriol: It is good to see you again, Keroberos, Yue.
Keroberos: You wouldn't respond, so we had to come.
Eriol: Tue.
Keroberos: We might not look it, but we're really ticked off right now.
Eriol: Hmm. I know. It's as plain as the look on Yue's face.
Keroberos: Since you used that magic circle to summon us...
Yue: Does that mean you are finally prepared to talk to us?
Eriol: Indeed.
Yue: Then explain everything. Tell us what is happening to our master.
Eriol: The one thing I have most feared is becoming reality.

Sakura, the Mirror and the Key of Memories[edit]

  • Sakura secures the Mirror Card of her new collection of Clear Cards.

Kero: Akiho's butler may be a magician?
Eriol: The house they live in was currently torn down and replaced with an amusement park.
Kero: Amusement park? Then how does the same house stand now?
Eriol: That location is perfect for storing objects that possess great power. Is shape is ideal, as well.
Kero: Did some magician make it that way?
Eriol: Most likely.
Yue: Have you contacted that magic association?
Eriol: Yes, although they didn't give much of a response. But I did learn one thing.
Yue: What?
Eriol: Exactly one year ago, Yuna D. Kaito was excommunicated.
Kero: From the association? But, if you have very strong magic and do whatever the association asks, they'll overlook anything. What did he do to get excommunicated?
Eriol: It seems he had lost an ancient relic of great power that was never to be removed from the association.
Kero: Lost it? What kind of klutz is he?
Eriol: That was not the official cause. The rumor is that he simply took the relic and left.
Yue: Is that even allowed?
Eriol: They would never allow it. They cannot compel him to return it.
Yue: Why not?
Eriol: Because no one can ever defeat a magician with the "D" title. The association was hiding that relic, so it must be forbidden. The association can do nothing because they fear both his magic, and the chance that he will use it.
Yue: Just what kind of power does this relic possess? Is is that powerful?
Eriol: If you mean it is far more powerful than I, at this very moment, then yes. The Li family had tried to discover the true extent of his magic, but could not.
Kero: Even the kid's mother was unable to?

Yue: Our master. What of our master?
Eriol: Sakura does not rely on objects made by others, nor is she aware when she creates the Cards' that embody her magic. In other worlds, she has created her very own magical items.
Kero: So the ability to show events from the past is Sakura's own?
Yue: Why not tell us?
Eriol: Sakura's magic is very strong, but it still chaotic. She cannot control it at all. Also, I do not know what this Yuna D. Kaito is after. It probably has something to do with Sakura's new cards.

(Sees that the sun-and-moon on top of his mystic staff has cracked)
Eriol: He is quite a powerful enemy, Sakura.

(Having utilized his purple-colored magic circle to sever the connection between Kero, Yue and Eriol)
Kaito: I expected no less from Eriol. No wonder they say he is the most powerful of magicians living. The watch that has not even been scratched, all this time, has cracked. Still, I will attain these new Cards. So I can use the relic I had taken from the association, to activate that magic spell.

Momo (to herself): Using whatever means to achieve your goal is fine. However, don't lose sight of what is important, Kaito.

Sakura: Since it's a mirror, I thought it could reflect magic, too. I'm glad it worked!
Syaoran (thinking): It worked because your magic is getting just that strong, even though that's not what you want. Mother and Eriol said the same thing:
"Great power will bring great unhappiness to its possessor".
Sakura: Syaoran?
Syaoran: I'll never let you be unhappy. I swear it. Never.

Sakura's Clear Cards[edit]

  • This so-called "finale" to the second anime series ends on a cliffhanger.
  • The only Sakura Card that is seen is "the Hope"
