About Cardcaptor Sakura Complete Series Premium Edition Blu-ray
This premium edition of Cardcaptor Sakura collects all three seasons and contains episodes 1-70, plus a 76-page, full-color artbook featuring Tomoyo's diary of Sakura's adventure and character illustrations.
Ten-year-old Sakura lives a pretty normal life with her older brother Toya, and widowed father Fujitaka. Or she did... until the day she returned home from school to discover a glowing book in her father's study. After opening the book and releasing the cards within, Sakura is tasked with collecting each of these magical cards, while trying to live the life of a normal fourth grader. In the monumental task of collecting all the cards, Sakura must rely on her friends and family, and decide what she finds most important in life.
Sakura's journey to recapture the Clow Cards continues. With most of them captured, she finds that the remaining cards are going to put up a fight. Along the way, she must also navigate the struggles of moving on to the fifth grade and contend with the ever-evolving romances in her life. And before long, she discovers that there's a not so pleasant surprise waiting for her at the end of her card-capturing journey...
After a harrowing journey to collect the cards and prove her worth as their master, Sakura finds herself in a whole new world of trouble as mysterious events begin to threaten the small town of Tomoeda. To make matters worse, Yukito seems to be having some unexplained troubles of his own. With no cards left on the loose, Sakura must form a special bond with her cards to quell each new disturbance, and discover what could possibly be causing them before the lives of Tomoeda's residents are damaged beyond repair!

Great Series, HORRIBLE dub
by TONY -
So when they said it was getting a new dub, i was excited hoping it would keep to the original uncut series.
First, the "new dub" is just the dub from canada version. The female voice actors arnt bad, but the male ones are atrocious! The male voices just dont match up at all and they sound like some bad fandub.
2nd, as far as uncut, for the most part it is, but there are some episodes on the dub where some scenes were cut, in this edition they were left in but left undubed, so it shows them but no sound and uses subtitles then cuts back to the dub voice over.
Honestly, love the series, cant wait for the new one to come out, but all and all, not worth the 200. Either by the half decent crappy dub in the usa or stick wiht the sub dvds.

I was happy to see that CCS got a re-release that all comes in one package plus a dub :)
Just to make it clear it is not a new dub by NISA but an old dub that was by Animax which IMO was not bad like other people say , the only thing that might bother you is the way they pronounce Sakura's name but other then that the dub is good but if you don't wanna hear the dub this release also gives you the sub
Eaither way you will not be disappointed :)

So glad this came out on a bluray set! Very happy for the sub option and to see it uncut :) Thank you for releasing !!! Worth it!
Terrible Bluray case!!

This product would've gotten a 5 star, if it weren't for the bluray case. Two discs are extremely hard to get out, highly recommend buyers pick up a new case as well. NIS America really screwed up on this!
I'm very disappointed.

The video and audio quality are great. They are definite improvement over the Geneon disks I've cherished this last decade or so. Unfortunately there are a couple of issues with this new set that kinda irritate me. Enough that it turned a 5/5 to a 3/5
First and foremost is the packaging. The box and booklet itself are fine but the case that holds the disks is one of those annoying tiered setups where you you have to remove a disk to get to the one behind it. Why? It's something like 9 disks that I fit perfectly in the old geneon box of almost the same thickness which didn't double stack the disks.
Main reason for the star loss lies in the translation. Li-kun is subtitled as Xiaoling every time I've seen it so far. Hearing one name and reading another is doing nothing but bugging me everytime I see it. Sigh.
Great product, mediocre packaging

Good value for the price. Can't comment on the English dub because I haven't listened to it yet, but I'm pleased with the Blu-Ray quality. The episodes alone would have justified the purchase, but the book was a nice little extra, although nothing groundbreaking. My only issue was with the Blu-Ray case; two two discs had fallen out by the time I opened the package, and this is the kind of thing stores have refused to sell to me before due to the risk of damaged discs. (Fortunately, this wasn't the case.) On the bright side, the box that holds both the discs and the book seems very sturdy and survived the shipping without a scratch.

I watched some episodes of the TV show in English and never got into it. However ever since I watched the subbed version, I found myself falling in love with this series. The voices sound more appropriate to their characters (i.e.: the children actually sound like children) and all episodes in Japanese are full length unlike the English version that had cut out certain scenes from each episode. And for such a long running series to get a complete bundle makes it worth it to collect the whole series in one go.
Deserved a Better Release
by Alex -
Cardcaptor Sakura is a great magical girl anime, as iconic as Sailor Moon. The crazy misadventures of Sakura over 70 episodes is a fun adventure to enjoy and I highly suggest the show itself. As for the Bluray it's great to see the show back after being out of print so long but still for the price I expected more effort. NISA used a poorly made dub from 20 years ago, not it's not the Ocean produced "Cardcaptors" it's not much better. The "art book" is little more than screenshots and the disc menus are sub par static screens with tiny print. $170 price tag is only justified by it's length otherwise find it cheaper. Sailor Moon had the red carpet rolled out for it's re-release only a shame CCS wasn't given the same treatment.
