Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura is a cute, sugary tale of 10-year-old Sakura Kinomoto. One day Sakura stumbles upon a magical book filled with powerful forces. She accidentally sets the forces free, along with a magical beast named Keroberos. Sakura must capture these forces before something horrible befalls the world.

This isn't just any old manga, oh no, it's the cutest darn thing you'll ever read. The big-eyed characters are all full of innocence and love. Of course the art is gorgeous, CLAMP, created it after all. There are little adventures in every book, all complete with adorable costumes. The love triangles in this series are somehow different then ones from in other series. Since the characters are so young, it seems sweeter and fresh. Love is the first for them.

Cardcaptor Sakura was created by CLAMP (a manga group made up of four women.) It is currently being published in English by TokyoPop. The manga volumes are divided into two seasons. The Clow season and the Mistress of the Cards season. There are 12 volumes all together. There has also been an anime and two movies made of this series. It has become an extremely popular series in Japan, America and other parts of the world.

Cardcaptor Sakura should be okay for all ages. Though, there are some relationships with large age differences. (i.e. teacher and 10-year-old student.)


Sakura Kinomoto- The star of this series. She is extremely sweet and caring. Sakura can become friends with anyone, including her enemies. But, at times she can be dense.


Syaoran Li- Sakura's rival. He is a descendant of the sorcerer who created the magical forces inside the book. Li is cold and even cruel to her.


Keroberos- Keroberos is a magical being who was supposed to guard the Clow Cards (the powerful forces from the book.) After they escape he helps Sakura re-capture them. Sakura at first, but warms up to her.
