Movie Reviews

Refreshing, exciting, very Japanese!
Adam Rugo | St. Louis, MO, USA | 11/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My daughter and I have been intrigued by other Japanese anime, especially how these programs give insight into Asian culture. Pokemon is another series that, through the fantastical and adventurous stories, teaches viewers about Japanese food, festivals, spirituality, and social values. CardCaptor Sakura is even richer and more insightful about the culture than Pokemon. It's very refreshing, especially in context of American animation which is culturally empty, unless it promotes consumer culture, and presents a distorted view of what it is to be a girl/boy/white person/black person/American. The children in American cartoons are so often bratty, materialistic, aggressive, and disdainful of adults in general. I was amazed that, in the world presented in CardCaptor Sakura, Japanese children are generous of spirit, kind, polite, earnest, health conscious, and eager to do well in school (they also can be mischevious, competitive, and critical of their own and others' failings).

The series works on three levels simultaneously: the magical narrative (the Clow Cards and their capture), the cultural context (Japan and some bits about China), and universal life issues (success, love, dealing with fears, death). Be aware that the subject of death comes up quite frequently, as Sakura's mother is to have died before the series begins, so her premature death and Sakura's feelings of loss keep taking center stage. But the topic is handled with realism and positivity - Sakura misses her mom but has learned to see the situation in a way that is life affirming. There's a serious side to this program which is absent from most other children's anime. I believe that's the only reason why the age recommendation is so high (BTW, my 9 year old daughter loves the show and has no problems dealing with the more serious topics).

It also refreshing to see a female hero character who is not "extreme" or "a**-kicking" or "glamorous." Sakura is an otherwise normal kid who is struggling to learn to use magic to solve a problem she created (releasing the Clow Cards). Most of her magical battles she solves with her wits, not with brute force. The problem-solving strategies she finds are refreshing, too. And she's so good hearted, she's always protecting friends, family, pets, the environment, cultural monuments, as she saves the world (unlike the PowerPuff Girls who trash everything in sight). Sakura's problem-solving is complicated by her allies. Kero, the Guardian Beast of the Clow, has been trapped inside a tiny stuffed animal. He has some magic, but it's limited by both his form and his vanity and gluttony. Li Shaoron, the Chinese boy-magician, has powerful magic, but is hyper-critical of Sakura and unable to express warm emotions comfortably. Yukito, her brother's friend (and Sakura's love object), functions like a Kung Fu master in disguise - he's always arriving at just the right time to defuse a fight between Sakura and Li, and doing it without them even knowing it.

All in all, CardCaptor Sakura presents a world that is stable and life-affirming. The show reinforces Japanese traditions and values (as opposed to American anime, which tends to undermine many social values (non-violence, self-sacrifice, reverence for traditions and elders). One of my favorite aspects of this show is that it is in Japanese with subtitles. We watched the American version of the show and we were amazed at the difference in voices and personas. The Japanese version is so rich with culture and emotional nuance that it wins over the English-language version hands down. And it's a great way to learn how to understand spoken Japanese. I highly recommend the series to anyone interested in: magical stories, girl-hero stories, asian culture, animation."
An Excellent Anime Series

"Ignore the above review in the show
received a low rating because the dvds are in Japanese.
It is a series made in Japan. Of course the audio
would be in Japanese. This anime is delightful. The animation, color
range of the paint, special effects, voice
acting, and music are all excellent. The frame
rate is also very high for a tv show, and
the animation is quite smooth. It's miles above
what you might be expecting from television
animation. This show is something that can help us all
remember our childhoods and the process
of growing up. The story is sweet without
being too sugary, and the characters do not
burst into song for no apparent reason,
unlike a Disney cartoon. I would recommend
the show to just about anyone. If you're trying
to learn Japanese, the show could teach you a lot
of common, everyday spoken Japanese as well. I'd give it 6 stars, but 5 appears to be as many
as I can give."
Great Big Fun!!

"Cardcaptor Sakura is the original version of Cardcaptors and it's a great deal to be able to get them all at once if you plan on getting the whole collection. I love this series! It's one of my top favorite animes to watch. If you love the series and have always wanted to watch them all in their uncut forms than this is perfect."
