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.
Sakura and the Mysterious Book
Sakura's Wonderful Friend
Sakura's Heart-Racing First Date
- Sakura: (after Touya ate her pancake) You're so mean! (starts hitting Touya) You ate without asking! Those were the hot cakes I bought with my allowance!
- Kero: Come to think, you're right. There's no way you would drown, Sakura. You don't have much beyond your athletic abilities.
- Sakura: What do you mean, not much else? I won't give you hot cakes anymore, then!
- Kero: (about Sakura and Yukito) What, they're not even holding hands? Kids nowadays...
- Kid: Mr. Plush Toy!
- Kero: Young one...You'll get hurt if you mess with me.
- Kero: It's hard to capture things with no solid shape, like water. Watery is one of the higher magic spells Clow Cards too. The four basic elements of Earth, Water, Fire, and Wind are rather difficult to use. Furthermore, Watery is an offensive card, so it's got quite a temper.
- Kero: Someone almost drowned? Was it you, Sakura!?
- Sakura: No, Kero. You weren't really listening to me were you?
Sakura's Tiring Day
- Sakura: Maybe it's a ghost...
- Kero: They don't appear in broad daylight.
- Sakura: Maybe some do!
- Touya: (About Yukito) He eats at least three times as much as I do.
- Sakura: Three times?
- Yukito:: Go ahead and have some too, Sakura. It's my treat.
- Sakura:: Kero is waiting for me at home, so...
- Yukito: Kero...?
- Sakura: Uh, um, nothing!
- Sakura: How are you doing, Kero? (Shows Kero putting laundry into the washing machine)
- Kero: Just because there's nobody home right now. Why do I have to do something like this? (Falls into the washing machine, and crawls out) OH MY, I GUESS I'M GOING TO BE DIZZY TODAY.
- Sakura: (She didn't hear Kero) Oh yeah! When this is done I'll have some ice cream with Kero-chan!
- Kero: Well then I guess I'll do some chores...
- Sakura: Good morning!
- Fujitaka: Good morning, Sakura.
- Touya: The monster is on cloud nine...
(Sakura holds up a fist and looks irritated, then turns around and smiles)
- Sakura: I'll forgive you today!
- (Sakura screams)
- Tomoyo and Kero: What!?
- Sakura: Look!
- (The house is messy again)
- Sakura: Now I have to clean it up again
- Tomoyo: I'll help you.
- Sakura and Kero: (crying and hugging Tomoyo) Thank you...

Yuki: DAMN IT! (The Silent movies her finger to her lips, everything becomes silent) Kero: (enlarges his shadow with a flashlight) All right listen up. I'm the guardian angel of this place. Leave immediately. Yuki: W-What do you mean guardian angel? You're the one who is messing with the painting!!
Tomoyo: (about the incident) The art in the museum moved? Sakura: Yeah, and suddenly, I couldn't hear anything...Although it was only an instant...Can it be something like...The curse of an unfortunate artist who died an unlucky death...I'm sure that painting is cursed! And so... Tomoyo: Was it that scary? Sakura: It wasn't scary at all back then.
Tomoyo: What are the powers of The Silent? Sakura: In the afternoon, all it did was make sound disappear. Kero: That's not all. If it shushes, not only does sound disappear, but at the same time... Sakura: At the same time...? Kero: I'm not sure.
(Sakura and Tomoyo fall over)
Sakura: And you call yourself the Beast of the Seal!?
(The Guard looks at the picture already back to normal Sakura and Tomoyo watches him)
Guard: It's terrible! The Picture has changed! (runs down the hallway in fear)

Tomoyo: I am so happy!
Kero: Tomoyo's happiness is very simple.
Tomoyo: Being able to spend time with someone I care about, having her wear cute clothing, and being able to record her on video. This is the epitome of bliss!
Kero: Yeah, you can even record my ultra-handsome self!
Touya: You're being loud so early in the morning.
Sakura: I'm not being loud!
Touya: A monster's footsteps resonate.
Sakura: I am not a monster!
Touya: Don't you think you've gained some weight recently? The sky looms closer to the monster, as it fattens up in autumn...

- Syaoran: Eh?

- 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: I know. [hands her a handkerchief] I understand. [smiles]

- Syaoran: [looks sad for a moment then smiles] It would be nice if you could find him.

About Cardcaptor Sakura
- 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

- Yue: No matter what it takes.
Sakura, Rainbows and Grandpa
- 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
- 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.
