[ rated g ] Card Captor Sakura

A Parent's Guide to Anime
Rated: G
Suitable for Family Viewing

Review by Michelle Thatcher

A very good Magical Girl genre series by CLAMP. The main character Sakura is put in charge of collecting several magical cards which begin to cause trouble for people in her neighborhood. Sakura gets help from her best friend Tomoyo and from the super deformed guardian beast Kero-chan.

There are a couple of fun twists that make this series unique and humorous. My favorite is the "Magical Girl Outfits" which don't come with the job, but are made by Tomoyo because she can't bear for her friend to be less glamourous than the magical girls on TV.

Parent's Guide Rating:

green (suitable for family viewing)

This is a good series for kids, but parents will want to be aware that the Japanese version has no less than three very obvious same sex crushes between major characters. I've only seen the first 30 episodes myself, but I have heard that this continues throughout the series. I suspect that these will be edited out in the dubbed version.
