Cardcaptors is definitely one of my personal favourites in anime. Surely it has suffered a lot of changes in the dub but it is still a great piece of anime to add to your collection. Cardcaptors has the ultimate feel good factor. Not to mention the amazing characters, my favourite ones being, Sakura her brother Tori and of course her ‘crush’ Julian! You’d never get bored watching an episode. I have to admit, when I first bought a tape from this series I was a bit prejudiced, thinking it would not appeal to adults… How wrong was I! The series really grows on you and if you like magical girlie shows (like Rayearth and of course Sailor moon) then you’re in for a great experience.
As far as the animation is concerned, the designs are beautiful; colour schemes are really pleasing to the eye, which really adds to the feel good atmosphere of the show and all the characters are very pretty. This tape contains the first six episodes (around 20 min each) for the series, which are all equally exciting. Episodes that stand out from this collection, well apart from the obvious one, which is the 1st episode I’d say ‘Allies’ was my favourite (Sakura goes on a trip to the aquarium where she confronts the water card…) followed by ‘Trouble at twin Bells’ (Just how dangerous can cute and fluffy animals can get? Enough to put a nice shop owner out of business!). Favourite moment would have to be when Kero (the guardian …erm beast of the clowbook) pops out of Sakura’s bag in school in front of her friend Madison, you gotta love Sakura’s expression! The soundtrack, although dramatically changed from the original, is not bad and can get quite funny at times…(hint: ‘each card possesses a power of its own we’ve got to find them to bring the power HOOOOOOOOME’…lol)
To conclude, you can’t really take Cardcaptors too seriously or you’ll miss out on the fun. It’s a sweet, funny, and ultra magical series and although it may not appeal to everyone, it serves as a classic in its genre!

This is the first and only cardcaptors dvd i have watched. This is a tale of a young girl called Sakura Avalon who mistakedly set free the powerful Clow Cards and with them came Kero (such a cute creature!) and now it is her quest to get them back! This dvd contains the first 3 episodes and you get 3 more free. I enjoyed it and i can't wait to see the next dvd which is coming to me soon! Not as good as the books but you have to watch it!

Can sakura save Hong Kong from the wrath of the evil sorceress? Buy it and find out what an extradinary movie it is.

Sakura goes on holiday and takes Madison with her. They meet Li and Mei-Lin and end up pursuing an evil from Clow Reed's time (one of his lovers, actually.) The animation is good and the plot is interesting. The only downside about this DVD is that it is not bilingual. The only extras you get are some scary music videos, which although they guarantee a fair few laughs, do not suffice. I would have rather have this movie in both english and japanese, that way you could enjoy the original plot as well as the dubbed one. However, this doesn't really spoil the movie, but it would have been nice.

The great hit is finaly on region 2 DVD and its brilliant! i loved the TV seris and now that its been incarsarated in a disk it will last forever!!!! (and note you dont need to be a girl to like card carptors!)
The general story line (for those of you who dont know it) is sakura finds the clow book and lets the cards loos, she then (with the help of a very funny little flying teady bear) has to re-capture them, this is the base line and other side plots are put to make it more interesting, this has been for me one of the best fantasy TV hits i have seen and recomend it to all who like these sort of storys!

Created by Clamp, Cardcaptors is a lot easier to understand, and a better contemporary anime than the likes of Sailor Moon, which now shows it age.
Enjoyable to both girls and boys, so long as you remember it was created for a child audience, you will be truly enchanted by the series.

After a little disapointment by missing 2 episodes to fit Meilin in, from the Cardcaptors vol.5 & 6 VHS, this volume cheered me up!!! This volume didn't miss a single episode & is the first time when Sakura's substitue Maths teacher, Ms Mckenzie makes her first appearance, helping Sakura & her friends finding their way out of the maze card . Meilin is also a very funny character, on how is tries to stand up for Li on capturing Clow cards. Madison also sings to help Sakura capture "The Song Card" (What a sweet voice!!!). My favourite part is when Sakura turns back to her normal size after being shrunk by "The Little Card" & sits on top of Kero (poor thing!!!)
This volume is a must have for all Cardcaptor fans & if you enjoyed the previous Cardcaptor volumes, than I'm sure you will enjoy this volume, because its the best volume so far......

Sakura wins a trip to Hong Kong! Was it luck or a magical coincidence? Expect the unexpected!
Cardcaptors the movie is very interesting to watch. It is just like watching a longer episode from the series although it gets a bit more serious at times. However there are quite a lot of jokes in this film and it’s still as fun as the series. You’ll get to see Sakura and her friends having fun but also getting into great adventures. One thing I like about this film is that there are so many characters involved and we get to see some new interesting faces, but I will say no more or it’ll spoil your viewing experience!
The designs are beautiful as usual, CLAMP’ s trademark, but the transfer to the DVD is not exactly the best. The picture is not as crispy and clear as you’d expect but it is still good quality animation. I don’t think it’s quite noticeable anyway as the plot is way too interesting to pay attention to such small details. Another complaint is that they could have offered the viewer the option for the Japanese version and subtitles, in the tradition of most anime DVDs. On the other hand, the menus are beautifully designed and feature well-known Cardcaptors tunes (from the dub). As far as the extras are concerned, they are not that many. In fact there are just two music videos and the trailer. Although the music videos are quite funny and slightly weird, they are an interesting addition to the DVD, as they are both groovy songs by Froggy Mix, pretty cool! Keep an eye out for the dance routines (lol).
Bottom line is, this film has everything you’d expect from the Cardcaptor series, lots of action, a magical atmosphere, funny moments, a bit of romance and pretty faces! For these reasons, I give this DVD five stars.

cardcaptors the movie is a step up from the tv series, the film is set somewhere around the first season of cardcaptors when sakura has to catch the clow cards. the movie is just as much fun to watch as the tv series, the film has plenty of joke and a times very sad. anyways it would be great fun to watch it's not just for children you know!, i did not want to reaveal the story incase i spoil it for anyone, just one more thing
" expect the unexpected " as kero would say.

I'll admit that i hated Cardcaptors at first. I thought at the time that the only good anime's were Pokemon and Digimon. However after watching a few episodes i grew into it, and started taping it. Soon after i loved it so much!!! A while later, i was ever so pleased that the episodes are out on video and bought them right away. The first 2 videos were very good and i gave them 4/5 but this one gets 5/5 but why?
From what i watched so far (only the first 3 episodes) they are some of the best ones i've seen! This is probably because i haven't seen them before - but even if i had they are certianly 5/5 episodes! Who couldn't smile when you see Tori dressed up as Cinderella?!? All in all a fantastic video (though i wished they brought it out on DVD), and i can't wait for the subsquent volumes to come!
