First Impressions: Cardcaptor Sakura ~ Clear Card Arc

Life is good for Sakura—she’s starting junior high, her boyfriend has returned, she continues to keep in touch with her friends, and the clow cards are under control. But in the midst of all this happiness, something is off. Sakura begins having nightmares about a new type of card, clear ones, and a mysterious hooded figure who may or may not be an enemy. What does it all mean?

And Cardcaptor Sakura is finally back. YES! I haven’t read the new arc in the manga, but I have been looking forward to seeing it animated, and episode one was just about perfect. All the characters returned, if even for cameo appearances, and the same old magic was still there—the new season manages to keep the same tone as the original but with little flourishes that modernize it and animation that is top, top notch. Oh, and it looks like we’ll have an interesting story to accompany Sakura’s new key, staff, and incantation—I’m excited to see where this all leads!

You can stream the new season (and previous ones) of Cardcaptor Sakura on Crunchyroll.

  1. I am also so happy to see Cardcaptor Sakura back! This was *the* anime that got me into anime, and it really does feel like returning home, in a way. Definitely looking forward to how this new story progresses, as well as more of one of my favorite anime couples in Sakura x Syaoran!

  2. Cardcaptor Sakura is back?! OMIGOSH!! I absolutely loved the first season(s) of this anime and it was one of the first anime I watched! I’m so glad it’s making a comeback! :D:D:D

    1. Yes, we’ve been waiting so long! The manga restarted a couple years ago, and now the anime is ready to go!

  3. So looking forward to this one! You beat me to the First Impression post haha. I haven’t read the manga either. I’d rather just wait till it’s animated.

  4. I know this post is kinda old now, but I just wanna say thank you so much for posting this! If I would have never seen this, I wouldn’t have known about the new series. I loved the original series, so now that I’m watching this, it’s like my most favorite anime now! So THANK YOU! 😀
