5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story. Beautiful art. Beautiful quality., 19 Aug 2011

This review is from: Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus Volume 2 (Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus (Dark Horse)) (Paperback)
The second Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus includes volumes 4, 5 and 6.
There are going to be 4 omnibuses in total.
It contains 30 colour pages too!

Sakura Kinomoto is a normal energetic 10 year old, that is until one day she discovers a book. When she opens the book she accidentally releases a set of magical cards called Clow Cards. Each card has a special power and takes the form of a creature when it isn't sealed. Also out of the book emerges the guardian beast of the seal, Cerberus aka Kero. Kero tells Sakura that she has to retrieve the missing cards or else disaster will befall this world. Thus Sakura becomes a cardcaptor! She battles each card separately and seals it after it has been defeated (whilst being filmed by her best friend and second cousin Tomoyo Daidouji).
But there is another person trying to capture the cards, Syaoran Li from Hong Kong. He is a descendant of the creator of the cards, Clow Reed, and classmate of Sakura.
Sakura and Syaoran both share the same crush, Yukito Tsukishiro. He is also the best friend of Sakura's bother, Toya Kinomoto.

At the beginning of the second omnibus, we learn the relationship between Toya and Sakura's teacher, Kaho Mizuki. Syaoran feels some kind of power from this new teacher.
And at last, we find out more about Yue! Yue is the cards' second guardian.
Also we get to see Cerberus' true form!
Will Sakura be able to collect all the cards in time before there is a disaster?

Cardcaptor Sakura is one of my favourite manga. It was also the reason why I fell in love with CLAMP and all of their work. The art is incredibly beautiful especially the character designs. Sakura is my all time favourite female character, she always tries her best. Toya is an amazing brother. I have an older brother myself and he nothing like that! I think Toya is everyone's dream big brother. All of the characters, especially the female characters are very cute.

The 30 colour pages are brillant! The colours are so vibrant. Dark Horse have done an amazing job! They pages are a perfect white and the thickness is just right! The text is easy to read and I like how they didn't ruin the art by translating all the sound effects, instead they just put a translation under them.

If you are new to Cardcaptor Sakura, I would recommend reading the first omnibus before this one, obviously. But you won't regret buying them.

This review is from: Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus Volume 2 (Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus (Dark Horse)) (Paperback)
This second omnibus edition of the `Cardcaptor Sakura' manga contains volumes four to six of this greatly entertaining series. The volumes in this omnibus conclude the first half of the series as Sakura collects the final few cards before being judged to see if she is worthy of becoming the new master of the Clow Cards.

The omnibus follows the same style as the previous one having slightly larger pages than usual for a manga and includes a number of full colour pages to show off the full beauty of the artwork. The story continues to be interesting, if somewhat episodic, with some of my favourite story arcs of the series in this book, including the school field trip arc and the brilliant holiday arc. The ending of the capture arc is also very well done with some good twists and some nice scenes. The only minor problem with the series is that there are some small issues with the translation but they don't detract from the enjoyment of the series.

Overall this was a very good book with some truly beautiful artwork, a good plot and some interesting characters. `Cardcaptor Sakura' is truly a classic of the magic girl genre and I am very much looking forward to the release of the next omnibus.

As I said for the first volume with certain ommisions like the Power capture, the Twin capture, the Create, the Big, and others but everything in this is essential to the story and the omissions as good as they are, are less relevant overall. It is a good read and is big enough without the leftover card captures included.

5.0 out of 5 stars So gentle, and just a great read, 2 Nov 2011

This review is from: Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus Volume 2 (Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus (Dark Horse)) (Paperback)
I bought the first book with the intention of re-living some classic moments from my childhood, as I watched the animated series on CITV religiously. I quickly fell in love with the manga version, as the characters were similar to the show, but were so different too. I couldn't believe the beautiful artwork and the heart warming stories. I naturally had to buy the second one as soon as I was done and wasn't disappointed!

I think this is a wonderful manga, it should be in anyone's collection. And it's great value for money too! You get the whole set in two volumes, with colour illustrations throughout from CLAMPs original title pages and it's even slightly bigger than a regular manga book. I'd recommend it to anyone who liked Cardcaptors or just enjoys a decent manga.

I love the anime and I decided that these omnibuses would be a fantastic opportunity to experience the original at a reasonable price, and it's just fantastic, high quality, well printed and clean translation, the compilation also means it holds up better than a simple comic!
