Well here is Cardcaptor Sakura in print from Mixx and this format, unlike the dub of the anime, has a translation that keeps all the original names and the original title. (Unlike Mixx's translation of Sailor Moon.)

The artwork is lovely with CLAMP's typical shoujo style. I wish I could post some images but CLAMP has stated that it only wants it to be posted on their official site. (As for Anime pics I think they don't mind).

For those who don't know the story of Cardcaptor Sakura it centres around the adventures of Sakura Kinomoto, a 10 year old girl who discovers a book that is designed to hold the Clow cards, a set of cards which are confined forms of magical spirits, some of which are powerful, violent, mischievous or in some cases gentle and friendly. However when she opens it and Kerberus the creature of the seal appears, they discover that it is empty.

Kerberus (who is immediately nicknamed Kero or Kero-chan by Sakura) gives her a staff with which she can return the cards to their card form and also call back their spirit form or use the cards powers once she has recaptured them and written her name on them.

With the help of her best friend Tomoyo who records her adventures on video tape, provides gadgets from her mothers company and designs/ makes Sakura her (often outlandish come cool, come kawaii) many battle costumes which Sakura reluctantly wears just to keep Tomoyo happy.

This is a very cute story and I would suggest anyone who has seen the (Cardcaptors) original or dub to pick this up!

Funny, sad, risqué, what a great mix!
