    The original was always one of those animes that I said I'll watch at some point. Just never got round to it. :raisigh

    I saw the original in the dubbed version called Cardcaptors for a while on WB11.

    While I loath shoujo I made a point to watch the anime recently or at least speed my way through it and will say that if nothing else I do like Sakura and I want to comment on how fantastic the production of the show itself was despite its issues. I did always like the overall concept but the show really needed a villain.

    The animation was just great and most importantly, consistent. Hell, they even did all the sequences where she uses her cards with all the different costumes and you know how shows of that kind love to use stock footage.
    Tbh, don't know if a villain was really needed. I wouldn't mind if one existed really but don't think it was that kind of show.

    My 7 year old self was crying watching this :catcry Everything was so beautiful.. The way it looked reminded me of how pretty Kobato and Ore Monogatari looked.

    I love the little nods in the new opening to the old ones. Listening to the same BGMs from the old series def brings back the nostalgia.

    I think my only really complaint is how much younger Touya and Yukito look now cause their faces and shoulders are smaller, though I guess it's cause of how the manga looks and cause long faces and broad shoulders were very 90s? Lol.

    I'm so hyped for this sequel.
    I loved the first episode so much, animation wise was excellent. Listening to the characters' voices is kind of made me go back into my childhood to when I watched it back then. Definitely gonna watch it all.

    It feels like a bit too much of a retread so far and everyone in the show is just kind of rolling with it, but despite the art change it has the same feel which is in this show's favor I'd say. After seeing Cardcaptors as a kid

    I hadn't touched this show in a while, but I just sped through it last week. It has a lot of issues but it had some things going for it too.

    Btw this animated sequel follows the animated version of Sakura Card Captor and a not the original manga as it was supposed. It means Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2 is still canon. :caticon

    To boost the anime's popularity yet it is clear it's a sequel to the original animated series. When Sakura reminds the parting scene with Syaoran, she's at the airport just like in the original animated series and not like in the manga where Syaoran parted from a train station. Even the teddy bear Syaoran gave to Sakura in the anime is still the same and not the one from the manga.

    Ah so many memories with CCS.Sakura was my favorite magical girl show from my childhood.

    I'm just happy this got a new adaptation, I haven't completely watched the original anime but I feel this captures the spirit of it, it has a pretty similar atmosphere and music too.

    Yeah that's what made me confused when I saw he first episode. They def went with how the first series ended, but then the prologue was different lol. I guess it was to just bring the hype back

    Yeah, indeed.
    I don't know if it was mentioned or not whether the prologue was part of the anime or manga continuity.
    Anyway I prefer to believe it's part of the anime, because it means the 2nd movie is still canon to the anime continuity.
    Also, Sakura met back with Syaoran after school ended while in the manga she meets him back before school starts. :hm

    Looks like the prologue followed the manga end. Just looked lol.
    Well regardless, the OVA isn't really necessary to watch the new series anyway

    Although they kind of tricked us cause we thought the new series would follow the manga end. Seems like they used the prologue to gain popularity for the new series. Anyway it's as you say, it's not necessary to watch for the new series.

    I was a big fan of the original series growing up. I intend to rewatch it, but I'm a bit preoccupied with other things so I probably won't be able to anytime soon. I might just go ahead and start Clear Card anyway.

    No problem.
    As long as you remember what was it about and the characters you'll be fine watching this new series. You don't realy need to remind every single episode and stuff as it's pretty much the same plot.

    Watched 3rd episode.

    Pretty good tbh. I like the fact Sakura can handle on her own to catch the new cards and she doesn't need help of any of her allies. She's really grown up alot. The show is focusing alot more into characters than the cards themselves, I like it. There're the old and classic comic relief scenes and they're quite enoyable.

    Watching second episode right now.

    Wondering why Yue and (Keroberos I assume) can still transform without their respective cards.

    Maybe cause they rely on Sakura's power now since she's their master? I honestly don't remember how their powers work tbh lol.

    You're probably right. Basically Kero was able to transform after the fire and earth cards were collected. But wikis state that the cards (fully half the Clow cards, Yue the other half) draw power from him, not the other way around. And one of them said he is powered by the sun. So once he's unlocked he either powers himself or he's powered by Sakura.
