Favorite OP and ED?
for me it's this:
Dreaming>Platinum>Clear>Catch You Catch Me>Rocket Beat
The only "progressive" themes in it was the flaming male homosexuality. However, the whole idea was that attraction was based on magic. When everyone learned this they curbed their homoerotiscism, except for one dude. Because the cause for abnormal attraction was spelled out as being not gay, the any following gayness can just be assumed to be a result of magic as well.
Plus it's a series for witchie, who benefit from anti-hetero sentiments from a young age.
You're probably closet gay yourself.
you know it wasn't just Li that had a thing for Yukito right? canonically there's more than just friendship between Touya and Yukito
It's not for everyone, don't worry. It's pretty slow and has quite a bit of filler.
Touya was magic too. If you want to talk about REAL canon, then Touya is technically the son of Clow and therefor platonically drawn to Yukito
Ojamajo Doremi is unironically the best magic gir.l show ever made
It was decent, i'd give it a 7/10.
thats like saying the turd you shat out yesterday morning was the best turd you launched of your anus.
Every wizard has made such a statement at one point before and we all wish we could say it again some day
So, I just completed the original series, and I honestly don't get why this show has been praised so much; characters are mostly are dull and way too cheery and upbeat about everything, to the point that it becomes a distraction. The setting isn't very interesting and seeing the same places and sceneries gets old quickly. The humor and comedy is bland, unfunny and can be annoying too. The magic aspect, while creative, feels like it was never used to its full advantage and all the explanations and lore about it gets a little confusing and over done at times. This show has lots of filler and in some episodes, nothing happens at all. The show did have great music and lots of cute moments though, I'll give it that. I didn't love the show, but it wasn't the worst thing I've ever watched; the second movie was a nice conclusion, even though I personally didn't really care for any of the romantic aspects of the series. It was a little too silly and way too boring and slow for me, took me about three years to finish the series since I'd get burnt out after like two episodes.
I tried starting to watch the Clear Card arc but it felt out of step. It's been a long while since I watched CCS. Maybe I'm too jaded… maybe the calm optimist self who enjoyed this has gotten too jaded? Dunno. Maybe some other day.
I'm thinking this is probably a precursor to the events of Tsubasa Chronicle, which I only half-finished since I only watched the anime arcs, so that's probably a good thing to do Clear Card before getting back to it.
I'm gonna be honest with all of you and even myself, I regret watching Clear Card. It was just so medicore and uninspired that it hurts my soul; it was almost even Sailor Moon Crystal levels of disappointing. The original series ended on such a beautiful, perfect note that I just feel there is no way in hell that CLAMP could create an ending that wonderfully orchestrated like before.
Honestly, I only like the first season of Sailor Moon. I hate Chibiusa, I hate the Outer Senshi and I just find that I get bored and tired of the series as it goes on.
Agreed, the Dark Kingdom arc was max comfy.
I will always enjoy the first season of Sailor Moon the most, it had the strongest themes of friendship and perseverance, had fun memorable one off episodes and characters, the romance aspect wasn't tired and derivative as it would be later on and had some of the best comedy in the series. What I really loved was how memorable everyone in the dark kingdom was, they had such a sinister and unique feel to each of them and they were my favorite villains in the series. What I love the most though was the interaction between all the characters, it was so entertaining and endearing to see these characters interact with each other and other, and not to mention, the backgrounds and colors for this season are so beautiful and so nice and comfortable to look at that it makes the experience to see such wonderful art worth watching this show alone for.
I haven't seen the Viz dub for this season yet so I don't know how well the new adaptation is. Hell, if I'm in the mood for nostalgic cheese I'll put on that bad 90's dub for a laugh.
I miss when Sakura and Syaoran were both a lot more spunky.
I thought Clear Card was terrible, such a boring, underwhelming waste of time.
I liked the show, but I always felt drained after one or two episodes. Don't know if I'd ever watch the whole thing again, maybe I'll wait a few years since its still fresh in my mind.

Getting real sick of seeing those words.
I'm amazed that the art from a screenshot can look so nice.
The art style in Sakura is mostly always pretty nice. The really early episodes could get a little sloppy at times though.
I love episode 66; if you've seen it, you'll know what I mean.
Why does no one ever bring up the fact that Tomoyo is a cuckold?
If there was one thing about clear card I liked, it was that they gave Sakura's other friends more screen time and some character development.
I just read somewhere that Makoto is barely above Usagi in terms of intelligence; is that true? I always figured she was pretty average in the brains department.
Ami's a certified genius, but her cooking abilities are unknown, she's usually too busy and rich enough to stop by the bakery whenever she needs a cake for everyone, and her other, let's say housewife skills, are probably similarly lacking. Physicality is minimal, she's a bookwork. Might do some light cardio.
Makoto is a supreme chef and seamstress, as well as a blackbelt in I think Akido? But her intelligence is barely above Usagi's.
Rei is likely the smartest other than Ami, that Catholic school has high standards. However she's an absolutely abysmal cook and has no skill with needle and thread. Probably pays for snacks with Daddy's money and occasional fortune telling. Physicality probably average.
Usagi is a competent cook, or at least she can easily whip up a strawberry cake. Dumb as a rock even a thousand years from now, and there's nothing that can convince me there's any power in that tiny frame.
Minako is a bit of a jock. High physicality, second only to Makoto, as dumb as Usagi, and the only time we see her cooking something goes horribly wrong.
I will never forgive Clear Card for being terrible.
>tfw clear card season 2 is probably in development hell
The bath scene is vital to the plot, it's just too deep for you to understand. Showing Sakura bathing with Kero was the first hint at Sakura's innocence and her ignorance towards all things Love/romance/sex. If she were to be shown or even left to believe that she doesn't want to bathe with Kero, it would give the impression that she's knowledgeable about sex and decency, and would therefore paint a different picture about her feelings towards the end where she isn't catching on to Li-kun's advances. It would make the whole situation appear as if Sakura was aware of his feelings (being so knowledgeable about relationships as to understand you don't bathe with dudes you don't also want fathering your children), but just didn't care.
lol, has there ever been a japanese show with a little succubus that didn't feature scenes of her nude at some point? It's like they just can't help themselves
No and it's gross.
You're actually right, good post.
You sound like a succubus who cares.
Thinking of starting this anime but I have tried other long running older weeb shows you jpfags have posted about loving and never got the appeal.
I already watched an episode of this anime it seemed like some episodic show like most 90s anime.
no, artists are just horny in general. robert crumb is no different from picasso is no different from quzilax is no different from the ancient greeks
I like it more when child characters are actually voiced by children. Just makes more sense that way. Most kid characters have weird voices because it's more common to use adult ladies.
it's more charming with real kids doing kids voices
Kids can do cool shit sometimes. Strong disagree, Tails was charming
This show is very nostalgic for me, love the bright and vibrant world it brings.
It's absolutely surreal that I watched Sakura in 2016 and am now fondly remembering those days as if it was yesterday>2016 will soon be 10 years ago
