Monday’s here, which means i’m bringing you once again this section, where i talk about Books, Shows and Movies i’ve read/seen a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.
Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.
And today, celebrating the news about it coming back with a new manga and anime (What a time to be alive!) I want to share with you one of my most beloved series ever!
Since i was 9 years old one of my biggest obsessions has been watching anime (although not so much these days…) and if there was one anime i was completely obsessed with it was Card Captor Sakura.
I remember the first day i saw the anime, it was the premiere in Argentina and i literally ran home so i would watch it from the very beginning.
Ever since that day i didn’t stop loving it.
Sure, there are other few anime that i love to pieces, but my love for Sakura is completely in another level.
In case you don’t know what this manga/anime is about let me tell you a little.
One day a 10 years old girl is alone at home when she suddenly hears a sound comming from the basement, when she goes down there to see what made the noise she finds a strange book opens it and accidentally releases the magical card within it. A weird ‘animal’, Kerberus (aka Kero), appears then and tell her he is the guardian of the cards. Now, because she released the cards and obviously has magical powers herself she has to collect all the cards before they destroy the world (mwahahaha).
So Sakura is set in a quest to find all the cards while they start making troubles in Tomoeda, the city where Sakura lives. As the story unfolds a new boy from Hong Kong,Syaoran, will appear saying he is the one that has to collect the cards since he is a relative of the sorcerer that created the cards. Both of them will have a hate-love relationship through the series.
Well, obviously Syaoran and Sakura aren’t the only ones in the show, … but they are OTP forever and i cannot get over it. (Also Touya x Yukito are OTP – the first shonen ai OTP i ever had – at the age of 9).
Well, the show is pretty much Sakura being followed by her best friend Tomoyo, Syaoran always trying to get the cards before Sakura and her brother always knowing when she is in trouble and her crush on her brother’s “best friend”.
The thing is i wanted so much to have magic because of this show, it was ridiculous. My sister used to look at me funny because i used to draw my own cards and tried to use them.. in time you’ll understand that this kind of things aren’t rare with me, i keep doing stuff like that to this day.
Also, this anime was the beginning of my love for CLAMP, the original creators of the manga … from then on i’ll watch every anime they made and such, even if they only designed the characters (like in Code Geass).
To this day i keep watching the anime from time to time even though i know it by heart. But it’s so incredible and it helps me to not growing up (…), like everytime i watch an episode of the show i go back to being that little girl that fell in love with the show in the first place.
Now, if you ask me exactly what i love about the show i will tell you that i love EVERYTHING, because i’m a complete mess when it comes to Sakura and her friends. There isn’t a thing i don’t like about the show, i would live in her world if i could. Like, seriously.
A while ago i started making these Kero Dolls, and they usually were all over the place in my room until i moved to my own place and my mom got rid of all of them .. but never fear because i’m about to start a new collection of Keros (when i start i’ll be showing you the stuff).
Anyway, Sakura was a huge influence in my life… to be honest my first fanfictions were about her… Oh the shame. Also, because of her i made a few good friends at the time, and i would talk a lot about the show.
Man, i love it so much… it’s like, i can’t even explain it.
Well, i’m mumbling … so i guess i’ll leave it here for now.
Did you know the anime? Have you watched it? Let me know! I’ll be more than happy to find other fellow fans of this amazing anime!
‘Til Next Time 😉
