    Another new and mysterious character appears. His name is Eriol. And I don't like him.

    It is getting very interesting since new characters are starting to appear (I already knew them from the anime adaptation, though). Still nice to see them again. PD: Please could Tomoyo be more adorable? I love her.

    When asked what my favorite manga-ka is, I'd have to say CLAMP without a moment's hesitation. When asked what my favorite manga by CLAMP is, though, I hesitate. It's so hard to narrow it down. Ultimately, though, CCS is definitely in my top five. This manga is so damn charming. The main character is wonderful, delightful, and so strong, her supporting cast is memorable and beautiful.

And this manga does present lots of different types of love - whether it be between a girl and a boy, two boys, two girls, unrequited, May/December, Human/Supernatural, or eternal... This manga presents it all sweetly and perfectly. It's so wonderful to watch Sakura grow into the heroine she is, to watch all those around her grow and change as well. The manga is intensely satisfying, wonderfully sweet, and one I never get tired of rereading.

    When I was younger I watch the anime for this manga and I adored it. Now after reading it I can't help but love it more! I would say this is one of the rare true childrens manga out there that can be read by all ages.

I loved the situation where there is someone trying to confess but always getting interrupted AND how the person getting confessed to is so incredibly dense. Even though it gets me sitting at the edge of my seat, I just love the suspense! I LOVE IT!!! So basically the story is originally original. The story is cute. I liked it. 3 SPARKLY SPARKLY STARS!!!!! So if you're a fan of mahou shoujo manga, you'll love this one. -I'll show you a sweet dream, next night.

    I love Cardcaptor Sakura, which is why I want to be honest about my opinion that this volume is lacking. It spends almost the entire time setting up the premise for certain events and not nearly enough time with the events itself. What saves it from a two star rating is the fact that no matter how dismal a scene is, the characters are brilliantly written and their complex relationships are endearing. I hope I find the next volume to be more of a classic fun Cardcaptor story.

DO I NEED TO SAY MORE? BECAUSE THIS IS THE BEST.

    It had been a while since I had read Sakura's book and I really missed it. It was really good and I really devoured it. I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book. I will probably read it later in the day since I have it with me. I like Sakura's character so much. It reminds me of my youth.

This story is like a mixture of a retelling of the first part but also a continuing part of the story. Instead of collecting cards, Sakura is upgrading them from Clow cards to Sakura cards. Like the first Cardcaptor Sakura manga, there really isn’t a villain in this story but there are trials that Sakura must overcome in order to get stronger. I’m not sure if it’s just me or the book makes it obvious but once Eriol is introduced you know he’s Clow Reed’s reincarnation. As soon as you see him it’s pretty obvious. I’m serious, they don’t even try to hide it. What’s really interesting is the similarities between Sakura’s guardians Yue and Ceroberus and Eriol’s guardians Ruby Moon and Spinel Sun. (By the way, does anyone think it’s interesting that Yue and Ceroberus’s wings are angels but Ruby Moon and Spinel Sun have butterfly wings. I thought that the butterfly wings was an interesting touch. If you read XXXHolic then you can probably guess what I’m pointing out here. Just something to think about.) Sakura’s guardians are bright and have light colors while Eriol’s guardians have darker colors and are pretty much opposites. I thought that was pretty cool. The only thing is that Spinel doesn’t show up a lot and I would liked to have seen more of him. He shows up in the anime and is cute but he’s just there and serious in the manga. Ruby Moon is pretty cool. She’s energetic, loves cute things, and is just constantly smiling. Eriol is interesting too. He’s kind, smart, cares for the people he loves, and has a very interesting wish. This series is pretty much the same as the first except it focuses on the hearts of the characters and who is the most important person in their heart. Fuho loves Eriol (I think that’s just weird but whatever). Tomoyo loves Sakura. Yukito loves Toya and Toya loves Yukito and his family. Syaoran loves Sakura and Sakura loves him too. But there is a bit of other romances that either raises eyebrows or just brings up questions like “This is okay?” Rika is a fourth grader who is dating their teacher. I understand if a girl has a crush on a teacher but come on dude! He even gives her an engagement ring. I uh- what? Whatever. But this still gets 4 flippin’ stars! There’s a lot of touching scenes that are just wonderful. When Eriol splits his power in half and gives the other power to his other half then Sakura’s father, Fujitaka, is able to see Nadeshiko as an angel and they greet each other. That was so sweet that I was going Awwwwwwwwww. There’s not much else to say. The characters are likable and interesting. They’re not dull, boring, or one dimensional. The characters and story may not be very complex but it’s not supposed to be. This manga is a cutesy fantasy with creativity and wonderful relationships. It knows that and doesn’t try to have the fantasy have hard core action or have any complexity in the relationships because this manga is trying to be simple. It’s just fine the way it is in the simplicity of it. It’s wonderful, despite its flaws. And it continues to be one of my favorite manga series from CLAMP.

    Wooo! Things have gotten interesting! I think I get who this Eriol punk is, but I hate him anyway. He's just that typical nice-to-face-but-trying-to-kill-you-secretly character.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Well, it looks like Clow Reed is back just he threatened, in the form of a young boy named Eriol. His motives and goals aren't apparent yet, but I think he might be attacking Sakura so that she transforms the cards, which he will then be able to steal and use once they're more powerful. It's pretty obvious that he's evil because he has dark version of Cerebus and Yue, who are starting to cause problems as well.

    Although this is marked as the first in a series, it is actually the continuation of . For my review or rather comments regarding Cardcaptor Sakura, please see here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show.... PS - I like "The Master of the Clow" part of Cardcaptor Sakura. We meet Eriol, learn more about Clow Reed & the past, and most importantly, Sakura & Syaoran's relationship begins to grow.

    I love all of Cardcaptor Sakura. It was one of those series that got into manga/anime, back in elementary school. I remember taping episodes of the horrible English dub on VHS over the weekend and obsessively rewatching them during the week. The volumes published in English under the title "Master of the Clow" are the strongest by far and a great reread. Eriol, Ruby Moon and Spinel Sun are some of my favorite characters, period. I love the way Eriol brings out all of Li's possessive tendencies. I I love all of Cardcaptor Sakura. It was one of those series that got into manga/anime, back in elementary school.

    On one hand, Sakura's battles in this series seem to be higher-stakes as her magic has become more powerful, but this isn't Harry Potter - we know she's going to win and that everything is going to turn out all right. The focus of this sweet series is on the excellently-drawn relationships among the characters. Never syrupy or sappy, Sakura's friends, family, teachers, and even her estranged grandfather are shown as good people who are a source of strength for her and each other.

    Reading this was like a wave of nostalgia. As a kid who watched the anime, this really made me happy as it picked off just before where I left off (in the anime of course). Eriol is introduced, and he's always been a strange favourite of mine, especially Yue and Yukito. I'm quite glad for these characters to have appeared. There is still a lot I don't know about the series, so I can't wait to read the rest!

    - This picks up right after the first series ends. - Does Tomoya have a crush on Sakura? I'm confused. - I can't believe what is going on with the new kids in town! Craziness! - I liked the bit about a Teddy Bear's birthday! So cute! I'm going to start giving birthdays to teddy bears. - I liked Sakura's last costume.

    Eriol's cute! And devious! And I love blushing Li-kun! Though I have to wonder why Eriol's so cruel to Shaolan when basically, Shaolan is his... uh, grandson? Interesting. Also, every time Toya opened his mouth to tell Yukito... something... someone interrupted them. It was so frustrating! Looking forward to vol. 8!

    DUDE. DUDE. DUDE. I read this in maybe 2nd grade, and it got me started on anime and manga. The art is adorable, the storyline is cute, and every book gives you an important lesson that 5th grader Sakura has learned along her journey along becomeing a magical girl(??) Also I don't think anybody dies like puelli madoka magica. puelli madoka magica was just sad

    Qué sorpresa, una vez más descubro que no tengo marcados la mitad de series que juraría haber readeado hace bocha. Y, como siempre, copipasteo una reseña pedorra y genérica que no dice nada para disminuir el riesgo de que barran con todo otra vez. Pero que conste que la serie en general me pareció muy divertida, creo recordar.

    This volume gets one fewer star than the others because it was depressing as hell. I'm really not into Tomoyo being silently and sadly in love with Sakura forever. that element of the story has stopped being cute.
