"Like some viewers I checked this series out mostly because of my enjoyment of the Clamp series of both their manga and anime creations like X/1999, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and Chobits and as expected the series isn't really hardcore or very dramatic it still is highly entertaining to watch close in its storyline action and basis to Cardcaptors almost. The series follows three young elementary school boys Nokoru Imonoyama the student body president who is also the popular ladies man who is the leader of their recently created detective agency, Suou Takamura the seemingly bodyguard of young Nokoru as well as assistant, and Akira Ijuuin the student body accountant and expert chef making elaborate deserts. All three come from the prestigious Clamp school a school that ranges from kindergarten all the way to college levels, the school is basically its own city with hospitals, banks, stores and anything else most cities would need on its personal ground all paid for by one powerful business conglomerate. The series is very light story-lined so while it has some action it's not really dramatic or hardcore to really be stressed about or to worry about what happens to the characters about(Ala Cardcaptors), if there's one complaint I would say that the dubbing was very poorly done coming from Bandai I expected a better cast for the series but except for maybe one or two of the dubbing voice cast the rest were just pathetic to hear so I say with this series just listen to it with the Japanese Voice cast instead. The extras are decent somewhat with the standard trailers, textless intro/ending songs but you'll get a day in the life at Clamp school act 1-13 as part of the extra which is a little enjoyable to see. So if you're a fan of the Card Captor series or just a fan of the Clamp Manga series here's another collection for your anime library to try out..."
