However, much to the reluctant Sakura’s dismay, things aren’t going to be easy for her; simply saying magic words and waving her wand around isn’t good enough. Each card is a living, thinking, extremely powerful being. She’ll have to learn to cope with her new responsibilities, as well as ordinary troubles involving love, school, family, and friends.

NIS America Licenses Cardcaptor Sakura TV Anime

Complete Blu-ray, DVD sets with English dub slated for August

Never saw it, doesn’t appeal to me. Why that asian co. recorded the dub in mono (it shares a name with a disease, that should have been a clue) is a mystery.

If it is as bad as every other dub from them that I’ve heard then it is hardly a “bonus”…except to masochists.

Saw them (both versions), like them, but doubt I’ll make this top priority purchase. Just wasn’t my “gateway” anime; mine were from way earlier: Battle of the Planets (Gatchaman), Voltron (GoLion/Diarugger), Robotech (Macross/Southern Cross/Mospeada) which I have thank you.
Hell, I’d go crazy over a Sentai (hint, hint) BD release of Gunsmith Cats over this.

But good for those who grew up with CS. Kudos :wink:

Who did grow up with this? I don’t remember it being on the Toonami, back when that was a thing that kids watched on weekdays.

I’m surprised at how moe it looks. If not for the 4:3 and the sharpness and additional detail in the art it could basically fit into the post-K-On moe world.

Since the only other title I have coming that month is already paid for, and nothing from Sentai that month (And I don’t expect any of the 3 Funimation title / releases that I want that month) I went ahead and preordered it. My Collection doesn’t have an actual Mahou Shojo title in it (Utena comes close) so this fits the bill quite nicely.

I remember this show. I know I didn’t finish it because the syndication ran out (or moved it to a time I couldn’t watch it anymore, or something)

May have been like my second anime or something.

Huh I’m surprised how many people didn’t/don’t know about this. Must have been one of those off the radar plays for most. I remember watching this show every afternoon. The show ran in 2001.

Toonami - Cardcaptors Long Promo

Toonami - Cardcaptors Intro

Anyway I’m quite happy to see this. I’ve been thrilled with some of the anime rescue efforts of late. I’ll have to keep a note of Cardcaptors.

When I was living with my dad, Comcast in the area didn’t carry Cartoon Network. Actually, by the time I had regular access to CN, Toonami was on its death bed anyway (Naruto basically)

That’s a good point. Back in 1999, Cablevision (that I had at the time) added the network. I guess it would depend on who was on board with CN at the time too prior to the series running.

This was more or less my gateway into anime. It’s a no-brainer purchase for me. And, I’m pretty sure the Animax Asia dub is the one that is getting stuffed in there. Someone of some importance made a tweet about it; so at least it’ll just sound wonky, but won’t be butchered by Nelvana.

Cardcaptor Sakura Complete Series Premium Edition

“Bonus Features:] English voiceovers”


After so many Funimation releases it is refreshing and shocking to see “Manufactured in USA” on this. That said, this box set is really lackluster for something so hyped and for a NISA release.

12:27:31 <bay|Ota|CR> One announcement for Otakon…
12:28:04 <bay|Ota|CR> Card Captor Sakura
12:28:10 <bay|Ota|CR> Tuesday at 6pm PST
12:28:15 <bay|Ota|CR> all 70eps subbed and dubbed

Got my copy of the BD special edition.

Weird case but it holds all 9 discs. Hard Back book detailing each episode including which card is fought in the episode with a brief synopsis of the story. It’s a nice set.
