Is there any anime or other form of media that's similar to CCS? I agree that CCS is probably the cutest and comfiest thing out there, but I'm not in the mood to rewatch it because it hasn't been that long since I saw it the first time. Could you please recommend me something?
I'm currently watching the Ojamajo Doremi series, it's a much bigger show then Sakura but it's pretty entertaining and comfy. It's a bit sillier than CCS but it is still an enjoyable and fun show to get invested into.
This is the order to watch the show in:
Ojamajo Doremi Sharp
Ojamajo Doremi Sharp movie (watch before episode 37 of Sharp)
Motto! Ojamajo Doremi
Motto! Ojamajo Doremi movie (watch this either in the middle or at the end of Motto!)
Ojamajo Doremi Na-I-Sho
Ojamajo Doremi Dokkan
I don't think I've cried harder watching anything in my life than when I watched episode 70 of the original series for the first time. It feels so somber compared to the rest of the show and the tension is quite amazing. Little details like the opening song going on a little longer to show a distracted Sakura or when the others notice how she hasn't been acting like her cheery self is a nice subtle touch. The scene where Sakura's tears make a new card, showing how strong she has become in her magic is well done and it shows how strong her feelings for Syaoran really are. The airport scene with Syaoran timidly giving Sakura the bear he made with the music playing gets me teared up just thinking about it. The icing on the cake, and where I started crying really hard, is the end shot of Sakura saying that we'll see each other again one day, and at the very end, the card she made, which wasn't shown earlier, is revealed to be a heart. God bless this series.
I'm not sure I understand, was she un-painted and they added paint, or was she painted and they removed it?
I think because in Clear Card she has painted nails so they digitally altered the original so it looks like she's been painting them since the beginning.
I love that. I wish more animes made references to CCS.
Maybe the original authors wanted her to have painted nails, but the studio couldn't deliver at the time of broadcast. With today's digital editing it may be that the intended design could finally be realized. I guess the answer is in the manga but I can't be bothered to check
I just finished watching Clear Card and I'm kinda disappointed in it. The story wasn't that great and there was just so much filler and wasted time. The finale was also pretty lame and it didn't resolve anything or progress the plot too much; plus, a cliffhanger just feels like a side effect of really poor writing. Syaoran also kinda feels different, I don't know what it is, but he isn't as intense or as cunning as he was before; almost acts more passive at times too. Same with Tomoyo, she almost acts a bit more obsessive and more strange with her need to film Sakura, like they do the zoom in on her making an intense face, with her speaking in a serious tone joke like three times in this series. Akiho is an alright character, she reminds of how Sakura was in really early episodes where she was a lot more timid and easily flustered. Kaito is the new villain of the series and he's kinda meh, he's not very interesting to listen to. I feel Yue and Cerberus became kinda useless later on, Eriol and his people don't really have much of a role either, and Touya is also getting his powers back somehow? I would give the show a 6/10 just because there were a few good episodes, but some of them were just super forgettable and boring. The art style looked nice but compared to the original, it looked quite soulless and plain at times. I liked a lot of the references or throwbacks to much earlier episodes, but some stuff like when they're watching the sealed card play in Tomoyo's theatre or the random use of the hope card in the last episode was a bit unnecessary. I really hope season two doesn't take forever to come out and that it turns about better than this one. I'm kind of burnt out on Sakura at the moment, so I probably won't start the clear card manga for a little bit.
I'm just happy Clear Card wasn't another Sailor Moon Crystal where it was beyond God awful.
I used to be a Mercury guy (like a complete pleb) then for a while I was into Jupiter but now I realize Mars was the best senshi all along.
The episode of clear card where Akiho and Sakura were reading the book to the kids was one of the most boring and stupid things I have ever seen.
Is Sailor Moon really even worth watching? I've seen most of season one and I've watched the entirety of S. I know I skipped parts but I hear R and Super S really aren't worth watching.
If you didn't enjoy the first season then no. The best part about it are the casual interactions between the sailor senshi to begin with, which I assume are the parts you skipped and which are most enjoyable in the first season.
Are there any videos on YouTube that are like a compilation or show the highlights of the seasons?
Not as far as I know and I would be surprised if there were, but I haven't looked since I actually enjoyed Sailor Moon. The closest to a condensation of the best parts of Sailor Moon are probaby the Junichi Satou directed iyashikei-type shows he made after the fact, namely Tamayura, the characters of which should feel intimately familiar right of the bat if you've seen Sailor Moon.
I liked R the most. Some people seem to dislike the first half of the season but I thought it was a lot of fun. The second half is even better though. If you like action and drama, and not so much the slice of life stuff, I would say the second half of R is the best part of the show. Really great enemies, from the lowly ones to the big bad evil guy at the end.
Super S got old really quickly and I stopped watching maybe 10 episodes in, I believe it is when ratings for the show in Japland started falling as well. I found the enemies just completely lackluster. Stars is usually not well regarded but I cant add anything further than that.
The ratings peaked at S and gradually fell down as it went on.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Soul
Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card: Soulless
I think CLAMP should have just left Sakura alone; the manga, while rushed towards the end, had a nice and sweet ending, and the second movie was a great finale for the anime adaptation. I will continue to personally believe this unless the ending of clear card completely blows me away.
For the longest time, people always regarded the stars season as the best one or their favorite, but now, I think people are starting to notice how weird and different it felt from the other seasons.
Do you think Sakura would be friends with any of the Sailor Senshis? Also, Kero interacting with Luna and Artemis would be gold.
Sakura is the greatest thing ever made!
Are the movies any good/worth watching?
Don't pretend like your time is too damn valuable to find out for yourself by simply watching them. In the time it took for this reply to be posted you probably could have seen all of them and made up your own mind on whether it was a waste of time or not.
Jeez, hit a nerve?
Where can a wizard read the clear card manga with all its chapters translated?
I always have the best luck searching for things like that with yandex. I guess the russian search engines don't really care about pirated content like google or other western engines do. You can just type in exactly what you want and get it in the first 3 results or so. With google it is always very hard to find less than legal things. I guess they remove links to stuff like that huh.
I don't trust it, and I don't trust your shilling of it.
There are plenty of other search engines that work fine, aren't Russian, and aren't shady.
I don't really understand your objections to it. But if you know of better search engines for searching for less than legal stuff I would be happy to hear it.
Is the Viz Media dub of Sailor Moon any good? I find the subbed version of that show to be kind of boring.
For a dub I thought it was done very well. Sailor moons voice seemed very fitting to her character. And for some reason I really liked the voice of Jupiter. The inner senshi are all rather good I think.
All dubs are awfull.
Would anyone here be Interested in a CCS YouTube channel? I would basically upload the episodes onto the channel and probably upload the OPs and EDs and other miscellaneous Sakura videos. I've been thinking about doing this idea for a long time but I've always been to unsure with YouTube policies and procedures. This wouldn't be a monetized channel either, just doing it for the love of the series.
Where does one find a good quality Sakura to stream or download?
>have a backlog to work on
>just wanna rewatch Sakura because I know nothing else could ever top it
I really liked the runner succubus from episode 30, I wish she was more than a filler character.>>30840
I feel the same way.
Lads, I decided to watch the first episode of the original series (just for kicks) and oh man, I forgot how well made and enchanting this show was. I'm in the middle of a bunch of different shows, but I'm seriously considering just temporarily dropping them to watch CCS again.
So some facebook group has total control over the clear card manga or something? I'm kinda in the dark here…
I always preferred the DIC background music, had more energy and better atmosphere to it; the Japanese version is kind of underwhelming to listen to.
CCS has a wonderfully orchestrated soundtrack that really does feel whimsical and grand.
Ojamajo Doremi has a great soundtrack also, it has a lot of range and is really cute and fun to listen to.
Is Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles worth getting into? I've only heard that it gets weird and doesn't really feel like the original show at all.
I read the manga some years ago and it doesn't have the original CCS vibes at all. Its more of a massive crossover between all Clamp works where an AU version of Syaoran has to save Sakura (who is now the princess of some kingdom) at the cost of her losing her memories of him. Its more of a generic action manga rather than a SOL magical succubus one.
I would only recommend it if you're really into Clamp stuff, because the story is a huge mess that barely makes any sense by the end.
Wow, that sounds like some very elaborate fanfiction on CLAMP's part. I've only seen and read Sakura so I probably wouldn't know or care about any of the other characters.
I hated how CLAMP tried making Sakura all dark later on with TRC, killing her off in xxxHolic and how clear card is mostly all just dialogue after dialogue. Please just leave that series alone.
Suffering magical succubi? Picked up.
