Cardcaptor Sakura is a popular anime television show that first aired in Japan in 1998 and continued until 2000. The series has been dubbed in many languages, including English, and has gained an international following. The show follows the adventures of a young girl named Sakura Kinomoto, who discovers a book full of magical cards in her father's study. The cards, known as Clow Cards, have the power to control the elements and wreak havoc on the world if they fall into the wrong hands. With the help of her best friend Tomoyo, her rival Syaoran, and a magical guardian creature named Kero, Sakura takes on the task of capturing all of the Clow Cards before they can do any harm.

The show has a light-hearted and playful tone, with colorful animation and whimsical music that complement the action on screen. Sakura is a charming and upbeat protagonist who always tries her best to do what's right, even when she's outmatched. Meanwhile Syaoran, her rival for much of the series, is a serious and stoic young boy who gradually becomes more friendly and open as he helps Sakura collect the Clow Cards.

One of the show's strengths is its wide variety of magical creatures and settings. Each Clow Card has a unique and imaginative ability, and Sakura often finds herself in strange and fantastical locations as she tries to capture them. From floating in the clouds to exploring a haunted mansion, the show constantly surprises and delights with its ever-changing worlds.

At the same time, Cardcaptor Sakura has a strong emotional core that keeps viewers invested in the characters beyond the flashy magic and adventure. Sakura's relationships with her family, friends, and magical guardian Kero are fleshed out over time, with each character revealing their own quirks, fears, and strengths. The show's themes of courage, loyalty, and friendship are all delivered with a light touch that never feels heavy-handed.

Overall, Cardcaptor Sakura is a fun and engaging anime that effortlessly combines action, humor, and heart. Its timeless appeal has made it a classic of the genre, and it's easy to see why fans of all ages have fallen in love with Sakura and her magical adventures.

Sakura and Her True Feelings
24. Sakura and Her True Feelings
August 5, 2014
Sakura seemed a bit preoccupied at school... I wonder if it was because of Xiaolang or Eriol. After school, Eriol invited us over to his house to say goodbye and to explain everything. It turned out that all the crazy things that had been happening were actually because of him! He was trying to help Sakura become the true master of the cards. I talked to Xiaolang to find out what Sakura had said when he revealed her how he felt, and he told me that she didn't say anything! I then found out that Xiaolang was going to leave for Hong Kong without hearing how Sakura felt! I couldn't let that happen and made sure Sakura had a chance to see Xiaolang...

It turned out that the new Clow Reed was really Eriol! We were all so confused. Eriol told us that he was actually the incarnation of Clow Reed. He used his magic to darken the sky and put everyone without magical powers to sleep! When I woke up, Sakura said that to save everyone, she had needed to change the rest of the cards to Sakura Cards. I'm glad that she's so strong! Eriol disappeared though, so we didn't get any answer from him, but Xiaolang finally told Sakura about his feelings!

Sakura had to deal with some more odd things - this time, it was a bunch of snowmen. There were a lot of strange things happening, and Sakura really wanted to get to the bottom of it, so she decided to use the Return card to go back and talk to Clow Reed himself. She told me about her conversation with him; it seemed very... cryptic. But Sakura really cares about Kero, Yue and the cards, so everything would definitely be alright! After she got back, we finally discovered the new Clow Reed!
Sakura, Xiaolang, and Tsukimine Shrine
21. Sakura, Xiaolang, and Tsukimine Shrine
August 5, 2014
Sakura found out there was going to be a moon festival at Tsukimine Shrine and invited Xiaolang to go along with all of us. Sakura was really tired in the days leading up to the festival because she was staying up late knitting a scarf for Xiaolang as a thank you for all of his help. At the festival, I tried talking to Xiaolang into telling Sakura how he felt about her, but he was too worried that it would just give her something else to worry about. The lights at the festival went out, and after dealing with a magical horse (that I finally got to record!), Sakura used the Glow card to keep the festival going.

I came along to the filming so that I could shoot some behind-the-scenes footage fo my own and capture Sakura's debut on the silver screen.

Sakura seemed a little scared that night... Since Sakura learned how to ski really quickly, the next day she decided to head up to a harder hill with Eriol. I didn't go up because I wanted to film her coming down for "Sakura Dances on the Silvery White Mountain," but it started snowing pretty hard and everyone had to go inside.

We went to the new water park in Tomoeda! It was so wonderful to have a chance to fim Sakura in her swimsuit, even in the winter! Sakura made Kero stay behind because we were with our friends and there were so many people nearby. After Sakura finished giving Rika a swimming lesson, we got some cream soda, and Kero showed up! I knew Sakura couldn't keep Kero away from such tasty treats. All of a sudden, the wave pool started going crazy and Rika got trapped in it!

Sakura and I went to get our fortunes and were really surprised to find Eriol giving them out instead of a shrine maiden! My fortune said that my dream would come true this year. I think it meant that I'll get to film Sakura just the way I always wanted to! Sakura's fortune was a lot more confusing, though... It said she'd learn the truth in her first dream of the new year. She told me she had a pretty strange dream that night, too.

Besides, Sakura had to go shopping with Toya for her father's gift. When their school chores were finally done, they felt Clow Reed nearby and decided to check it out. Sakura had to call on the Mirror card again to go with Toya. After dealing with Clow Reed's disturbance, Sakura realized she hadn't gotten a gift for the cards and had Eriol help her record a hymn for them.

We decided to get some juice near Penguin Park to celebrate, but all of a sudden, the penguin statues in the park came to life and attacked us! It's a good thing Meiling was there with her martial arts, because Sakura was too surprised to react and would have been smashed! I think that was when Meiling realized that Xiaolang really liked Sakura. Meiling was pretty upset and spent the night at my place before she went home, so I got to comfort her.

We tried to leave, but when we opened the door to the hallway, it just led to another classroom! I was too slow and got stuck in a classroom all alone. Every door just seemed to lead to a different classroom. I think Sakura started getting scared, so I began singing to let her know I was okay.

11. Sakura, Xiaolang, and the Elevator

Xiaolang still didn't seem to be able to get Sakura out of his head. Which makes sense since she's so adorable! But he didn't know why she was always on his mind, and seemed troubled by it. Eriol, Sakura, Xiaolang and I went to see the Teddy Bear Exhibit and I noticed that Xiaolang was always keeping an eye on Sakura. When I mentioned it, Xiaolang got embarrassed and wanted to go home, but instead, he and Sakura got stuck in the elevator together!

We thought it was Kero, but he said that while he was hiding in the woods, he ran into a panther-like version of himself! The other Kero was named Supie.

Sakura started reading "Alice in Wonderland," and she loved it. But she ended up getting literally pulled inside the story! She said she saw everyone she knew turned into characters from the story; Toya was the Mad Hatter, Yukito was the White Rabbit, Xiaolang became Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and Eriol became the Chesire Cat!

Since Sakura wanted to save them, she tried transforming all of them at once, but it was too much for her. The Dash card didn't finish being transformed, and escaped!

Sakura was still pretty tired from changing more cards into Sakura Cards, and had a hard time staying awake in class. Meanwhile, Yukito was starting to get concerned about how tired he was and how much he had been blacking out. It turned out that his issues were because Yue's power was running out. If Yue were to run out of power, then both of them would disappear. Toya noticed something wrong with Yukito, and wanted to help, but Nakuru got in his way. When we went to Penguin Park that night, Sakura felt Clow Reed's presence again, and we found a huge pit! After hopping in it, Sakura said she got covered in sheep, but she managed to escape and close it up!

Sakura and the Dangerous Piano
3. Sakura and the Dangerous Piano
August 5, 2014
Poor Sakura had been really tired lately. I guess that was because changing the Clow Cards into Sakura Cards takes a lot of energy. While I was practicing singing - and thinking about Sakura, of course - the piano started trying to squish me! Sakura is so smart that she figured out it was attracted to my voice, and used the Song Card to save me. Sakura said she sensed Clow Reed nearby which didn't make sense because he died a long time ago...

Xiaolang saw what happened and got pretty upset... It still hadn't stopped raining from the day before, and Sakura decided to do something about it. When we went to search for the cause of the rain, Sakura's magic still didn't work and we were all trapped in water geysers!
