Ratings & Reviews
Great show, BAD dub.
Honestly, and this has nothing to do with Rightstuf but the packaging itself, its crap. While its great to see the show on bluray, the subtitled part of it is great, but the dub of it is HORRIBLE. Its not even a new dub, they used the dub from canada and the voice overs are just so bad. Also, while this show is uncut on bluray, the parts that were originally cut are back in there but are NOT dubbed, you just get silence with subtitles for the uncut parts. Stick wiht the original subbed dvds.
Magical Girl Anime at its Finest

The graphics still hold up fairly well considering how old this series is. The journey is still wonderful and the characters all have their moments. The fights are lovely and even though the dubbing itself isn't great the subbing is very watchable. This is a lovely show.
Charming show but lacks 5.1 audio
I love this show but I refuse to buy this since they didn't include the 5.1 mix that was on the Japanese releases. It sounds really great with the new 5.1 mix so to have improved video but not include the improved audio is something I don't support. Now if you don't have 5.1 setup then its worth it as its a great fun & charming show.
A definite classic.

I used to watch this when it first aired in the U.S. as Cardcaptors and picking this up has been a real treat, it's a bit pricey but this a definite classic and honestly even though it's a magical girl anime there's something for everyone here, action, adventure, even a little romance thrown in. People have complained about the dub but it's honestly not too bad, I actually tried to watch the old cardcaptor dub after and find it to be worse actually! All in all this is a great set and worth the money to get the whole series in one box set.

Well I'd have to say this was a disappointment. I can accept that this is not the Nelvana dub that I grew up with. My big problem with this is that it's advertised as uncut but a lot of English audio is missing. Certain scenes play with no audio. Why would anyone want to spend 100$ on that?
The magical classic, now on Blu-ray!

When Cardcaptor Sakura shines, it does so brilliantly. Before the turn of the century and a shift to digital production, there is still a natural texture present in everything from background to foreground objects. And while Sakura doesn't really have a transformation sequence, the animation while she summons a card is a delight every time it's shown and changed to match her current attire.
The soundtrack also warrants special mention. It's a high quality blend of cheerful soft-percussion and melody tracks to moodier, layered pieces as well as the reoccurring grand battle themes which all are catchy enough to get stuck in your head, years from having seen the show.
And while it is true that it's too long for it's own good it is absolutely worth to sit through it as there are many great scenes and episodes strewn about.
To my end, it still holds up incredible well and the blu-ray release makes it look as good, and sound as good, as it truly deserves. It is expensive but great.
A great buy.

I used to watch this show back in middle school and it is still amazing. The blu ray is beautiful. The dub isn't very good but, I always loved the Japanese anyway. If you are just looking for the original experience this is for you
A Classic but...
by Joshua -
A classic among classic magical girl anime's and truly a must have for any collector. Its a great show, with a cool story, memorable characters and great animation for the time it was made. Having said that i do have some thoughts... The dub is abysmal to put it kindly. The issue is not that the actors are doing a poor job its simply that this is a censored dub. Names have been changed, plot point omitted, scenes completely cut. To fill in those gaps you simply get silence with subtitles. Thankfully if you just watch it subbed you get the full experience. Maybe Funimation will go over this with a proper dub in the future because there work on Clear Card is quite good.
CCE-One Of Alltime Best Shoujo Series.
The english dub is from Animax-while it isn't the best it beats watching the series in japanese for the 8th time. I have the oop CE set and everybody complains that the box and the book are just meh they suit the series overall theme just fine. Overall I find this to be a perfectly acceptable set for this enduring series.
Not what I was hoping for

I was happy when got this blu ray in the mail but when I played the blu-ray it wasn’t the ocean dubbed from Canada that I grew up with the new English dubbed voice over was just crap I would recommend to those who started watching this anime in 2011 when they re dubbed it but for those fans that grew watching it in the late 90s earl 2000 then I won’t recommend this blu-ray.

Cardcaptor Sakura is my favorite series and this is a good release. However if you're planning on watching it with Japanese Audio and no subtitles there is no option to do so in this release.
Needs a better re-release
Great show but this needs a new re-release. The biggest issue I have is they didn't include the fantastic 5.1 remix audio from the Japanese release and just give us stereo. Also CCS was re-released in Japan with an improved blu-ray since there was video issues with this older release so its fixed and much better. I think a re-release with the improved video & including the 5.1 mix would be great. A new dub would've been nice but understandable if they don't want to make a new one. The current dub on this is so bad that I consider this a sub only release.
Best way to own and watch Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura is one of the best anime series you can delve into, if you're into wholesome, story-driven plots with amazing and charming characters.
This set has all of the episodes you need to complete the original anime, all in one case with multiple discs. It is definitely re-amped to be High Quality because of Blu-Ray, so you'll get a clean and amazing picture of the episodes.
It has it in Japanese (original plus subtitled), and in English Dub (not Nevela's and it's fully uncut sans only two or so short scenes that are subbed). I went with English Dub, and while dated, is still very enjoyable and fits the characters well enough - plus it revels some type of charm to me for some reason lol
In short, this is the definite choice to get this Blu-Ray edition of a fantastic series. It has everything you need and it will not disappoint!
