It's uninspired, tedious garbage with bland characters.

No it's too fucking girly and lovey dovey.

It's manly and hotblooded as fuck

It's actually boring until the last couple arcs when shit gets real weird.

It's an inspired masterpiece with fantastic characters.
>>
>>135399030
It's a show that does so much before it's time
Not a wild ride, but one that's still great to watch
It's about growing up and learning, it's about friends and more
It's an anime that anyone, of any age group can watch and like

And for gods sake make sure you watch the subbed version and not the shitty ripped apart english version that aired on tv and shit all over the show. They fucking changed "tea" to "hamburgers" for christ sake

>They fucking changed "tea" to "hamburgers" for christ sake

The fuck? I know that old dubs had a tendency to replace riceballs with sandwiches or hamburgers, but to replace freaking tea?

If memory serves it was the episode were the kid and the stuffed animal body swapped. I remember seeing the subbed version, pausing it, finding the cassette tapes I recorded the TV toonami version on and double checked. Was blown the fuck away.

Dude. Or dudette. You should totally watch it.

No, I'm not exaggerating.

Its a magical girl show that pretty much fits every stereotype. There is no dark twist or anything.
If you like magical girls, you'll like Cardcaptor Sakura.

I forgot, but why did Tomoyo make her new costumes so often and how did she convince Sakura to wear them?

She is a lesbian and she forced her to wear them.
>>
>>135403716
I require all of them. ALL OF THEM.

Because magical girls must have cute costumes.
And instead of one cute costume, Tomoyo made costumes for any and all types of situations.

-It's a monster-of-the-week show that manages to make the formula not boring and repetitive as hell- since each "monster" (at least in the first arc) is a manifestation of one of the spells Sakura gains, the writing isn't "stuff happens, monster appears, COOL MOVE THAT WINS THE BATTLE, the end" but "how could a being with this power cause mischief and how would Sakura solve it with the spells she has so far?"

-It has an unusually high budget for a child-appropriate 70-episode show- most notably, Sakura wears a different outfit each time she goes into battle (at least when it makes sense for her to change at all- there are no transformation sequences, Tomoyo just makes her clothes and she changes into them before going out to hunt a card monster,) which is crazy for a genre that traditionally relies on stock footage to fill time.

-It's fucking adorable and has no fanservice or sexualization at all. Just pure, sugary-sweet cuteness and friendship and so on.

Basically, it's pretty much the most well-done "traditional" magical girl show out there. If you like magical girl shows, you'll like CCS. If you watch one "traditional" magical girl show ever, it should probably be CCS.

(And I say "traditional" to differentiate it from shows like Madoka and Nanoha, which take magical girl tropes and go off in very un-magical girl-like directions with them.)
>>
>>135400074
>And for gods sake make sure you watch the subbed version and not the shitty ripped apart english version that aired on tv and shit all over the show. They fucking changed "tea" to "hamburgers" for christ sake

Actually, I believe they went back and gave the show a non-shitty dub (or maybe the good dub was made concurrently but released in another territory? It's been a while, I don't remember the details.)

That said, I'd say CCS is the sort of show that works better subbed regardless.
>>
>>135399030
Watch it.

>>135409711
Yeah I think a decent dub that has everything intact was released australia or something.

I like the openings for it.

I'l ask.
What is the matter with the US dub, i never watched it so i don't know but anons here alwasy say how horrible it is however so far i have only learned that they changed the OP.
So is it really that bad or are you just exagerating?
>>
Outstanding OST, every OP and ED is also great.

>>135405374
It looks absurdly good for 70 episodes in the late 90s. Thankfully it came before the digital cancer of the early 2000s, so the BD transfer is awesome. Worth every one of the 110GB on my hard drive.

>>
I started reading the manga and it's pretty generic, which I pretty much expected.
I've only read the first volume so far.
Does it do anything different than other mahou shoujo?
>>
>>135409991

It was basically every single terrible thing that companies would do to anime dubs airing in childrens' television blocks in the 90s/early 00s turned up to 11. On top of the usual shit- changed music, most references to Japanese culture scrubbed, anything that could possibly piss off conservative parents censored- it re-edited the show to turn Syaoran into more of a co-lead than a sidekick in order to appeal to boys more, most notably by cutting all of the episodes from before he showed up.

That last point is what really makes it stick out among its peers- most other severely fucked-with dubs of that era (Sailor Moon, DBZ, One Piece) seemed to at least be trying to keep the show's base identity intact- Sailor Moon was still about a bunch of teenage girls being friends and fighting evil, DBZ was still a dumb ridiculous action show, etc- but the Nelvana dub of CCS seemed to be trying to turn it into something fundamentally different.
>>
>>135410475
It must have sucked to see that instead of a decent dub or the sub.
Thanks for the info.
>>
>>135410384

I feel like most people are more into the anime than the mango, so maybe you're just going with the wrong version?

I haven't read the mango myself so I'm not really qualified to compare.
>>
>>135410384
The anime I think is better. It's a perfection of the traditional mahou shoujo, not really one that does things differently than before. It is outstanding in how well it executed.
>>
>>135407205
Is that from the bluray? Because that looks amazing.
>>
Just do it OP. Me and my friend went in to marathon the first episode of some mahou just to riff on them because we hate the genre. We couldn't find a single bad thing to say about CCS and now I'm on episode 50. It's that fucking good.

It's no masterpiece, but it's just incredibly comfy and fun to watch.
>>
>>135412741
Why do you hate the genre gayboy
>>
>>135412788
Maybe hate wasn't the right word. We hated Sailor Moon and hadn't really watched anything else. All the other stuff we watched was nothing special, so I doubt I'm gonna get into mahou shoujo or anything but CCS is definitely top 10 material.
>>
>>135399030

Its a mahou shoujo where character development and relationships are the focus. The magic is just a tool to bring the characters together. It starts off as an adorable romp of catching cards and interacting with a rude stuffed animal. Then gradually becomes one of the more emotional series you'll ever see.

Basically, its just an enjoyable show to watch. With enough depth to appeal to people of any age.
>>
Yukito is Yue
Mei Ling lost
Syaron won over Sakurabowl
Eriol is Clow Reed's reincarnation
The Nothing is the last card, it erased everyone but Sakura, and Love+Hope card undid everything
>>
>>135413303

It's funny because knowing all of that shit in advance doesn't really change your enjoyment of the show at all.

(Though maybe I just came into the series from a weird angle, watching the last ~10 episodes + movie at my college anime club before going back and marathoning the series from the start.)
>>
>>135413425

CardCaptor Sakura is all about the journey, not the destination. You don't even want the end to come because it means the journey has ended.

Though I will admit, it has one of the best endings in anime. I applaud them for not trying to extend the show beyond where it ended.

Angelic Layer however should have had more seasons damnit!
>>
Why does she always use Jump instead of Fly? Just seems like she's intentionally limiting herself.
>>
>>135414317

She uses Fly the most aside from Windy.

Sakura is also known for making the oddest choices with cards.

>there's a card that can jump dimensions and be anywhere at once
>I'll use wood to trap it!
>it works

You have to admit that imagination is necesary for capturing the cards, like the time she traped the water in the cooler.
And who knows if her own magic gives more power to the cards.
>>
>>135414786

Well freezing Watery made sense. A lot of her other choices don't. But its pretty much explained at the end of the series that Clow picked her from the start. Knowing she had all the intuition to use the cards correctly. Its one of the few times when plot armor and 'you are the chosen one' were done well in a TV series.
>>
>>135399030
I just finished it about a month ago. I would wake up early and watch 2 episodes with a cup of coffee. The show, to repeat the voice of the thread, is just pure wholesome fun. It gives a masterful balance between keeping things upbeat and giving hardships and problems the weight they deserve. quality not QUALITY is amazingly well maintained throughout the entire show.

watch it because you know you should

Granted I have watched it a few times before. But its still just as good.
>>
>>135414977
It's kind of the inverse of a usual chosen one plot. Usually it's "You're good enough to do this because you're the chosen one." In CCS it's "You're the chosen one because you're good enough."
>>
>>135415150
Well, I mean, she's pretty much his daughter.
It's mostly the former.
>>
>>135415189

Shaoran is the one descended from Clow. Sakura is just some random girl who Clow foresaw 200 years earlier. CCS has a lot of mixed up relationships. But they didn't make Shaoran and Sakura distant cousins thank goodness.

Anyway, it's CSS that chooses to put more effort into its MotW rather than character interaction, compared to Sailor Moon at least. You've got things the wrong way round.
>>
>>135415900

>it's CSS that chooses to put more effort into its MotW rather than character interaction
It does the exact opposite you idiot. Half the episodes don't even have a card and focus entirely on character relationships. The character relationships are the focus while the magic and fighting are the sub plot.

I love Sailor Moon as well. But it clearly has more fighting and 'monster of the week' than CCS does. But both still focus on the relationships the most. No idea where you're saying CCS does it less than Sailor Moon.
>>
>>135416083
I'm not saying it has less of a focus on that, but simply that the characters aren't as interesting.
>>
>>135416083
Not him, but I would assume he meant that the MotW is better done in CCS, than in Sailor Moon, where it repetitive as fuck and tiring.
>>
>>135416169
it is*
>>
>>135416164
Well, you are entitled to your opinion, but your opinion is shit.
>>
>>135416169
>>135416164

But that is entirely subjective. And still I can't see how someone would think that. Unless he's just going by how many episodes and reaction images the show had. Clearly Sailor Moon has more. But larger quantity =! superior quality.

No one ever said she was the smartest girl. That's what she has Shaoran for.
>>
>>135418510
Tomoyo and Shaoran are god tier supports. Just useful enough to not make them jobbers or space-wasters, just weak enough for Sakura to keep the spotlight.

Every time I thought Tomoyo was favored a little too much by coincidence or Shaoran a little too powerful, they dialed it back at the perfect time.

In the first season, fly takes over her wand, and she frequently needs it to seal cards. Jump is also more natural to use than fly: you simply jump very high.

She still frequently uses fly, but usually only when she really needs to fly.
