they are both magical girl anime P-:
sakura and Usagi are both cute

both have a talking mascot who is like the nursemaid trainer
when you compare both Kero and pgsm Luna both pretend to be stuffed toys when exposed to the public

other than that CCS is it's own thing

Not really.

Fate Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya would be more similar.

The only similarity is that both Sakura and Usagi are ordinary girls who get magical powers and have talking mascot partners but everything else is completely different. I would say CCS is more similar to Pokemon than Sailor Moon but I think CCS is still a really good show that's worth watching and it's my second most favorite anime after Sailor Moon and I would highly recommend it. Just avoid both the Nelvana and Animax Asia dubs because neither dubs are very good and just stick to the Japanese version. If you want an anime from CLAMP that's more similar to Sailor Moon, you should check out one of their older works, Magic Knight Rayearth, which is also really good but fits the Sailor Moon mold more.

"Cardcaptor Sakura" is CLAMP's response to "Sailor Moon." During the period in which "Sailor Moon" was being serialized by Nakayoshi, the editor of Nakayoshi, Hedeki Yamanouchi, personally approached CLAMP and asked them to create a magical girl story.

I've gained a much better appreciation of this arc over the years
chiba wasn't as bad, the aliens are amusing, I like the concept of the Cardians, even the Doom Tree itself is interesting as well as the Race Ali and En belong to, the one time only attack upgrades the inners used,
good comedy, good action, it was the superior part of R, I wish that was the whole second season just classic, Doom Tree, then S and so on

^^^ didn't care for it myself I found it boring although some episodes were good others to me were just boring I usually skipped the filler arc when I watch R (best part about the filler arc was when Rei sang Eien No Melody)

There are some interesting crossover factoids between Sailor Moon and CCS. Two Sailor Moon veteran voice artists were also in CCS. Aya Hisakawa, who was the voice of Sailor Mercury, played Kero in CCS. And Emi Shinohara who was the voice of Sailor Jupiter also plays the character, Kaho-sensei. And Anza, who is best known to our fandom as playing Usagi in the original Seramyu musicals sang the second CCS opening and even makes a cameo in one episode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kpr460TaMrA

^^^ and Kotono Mitsuishi (usagi's va) has a brief role as Maki in Ccs
Megumi ogata (haruka's va) is Yukito's va in ccs
Kikuko inoue (sailor aluminum seiren) was also va of shaoran's mother in ccs movie 1
Yuko minaguchi (sailor saturn's va) was nadeshiko kinomoto's va.

Worths mentioning :orly:

BTW, both the composer & arranger of that OP theme are big names in the J-pop industry. :cool:

If you are thinking about watching CCS, don't. I'm not saying it's bad, I'm just saying why watch CCS when you can watch Magic Knight Rayearth or Angelic Layer?

"Magic Knight Rayearth" is an underrated masterpiece.

All those three works are quite different, & are, in their different ways, good to watch. :)

Yes! MKR reminds me a bit of Michael Ende's Die unendliche Geschichte which is one of my favorite books. The twist at the end is reealllyyy good. Now I feel like watching the OVA.

No not really, the only similarities I can tell is that both are about magical girls and both have a talking mascot character that's like a mentor to the main characters, and that's it.

I'm only joking :tongue: I like MKR a lot more too, but Angelic Layer was fun. I've also been thinking about watching RG Veda and xxxHolic.

xxxHolic is beautifully poetic and philosophical, as well as one of the greatest anime I have seen in my life thus far.

MKR was the first anime I ever got into that wasn't aired on American TV. I was a huge fan of it in my high school days and I still love the show a lot. It's a unique twist on the JRPG fantasy genre and the ending to the first season is still one of the best anime plot twists I've seen. It should be warned though that MKR does have a very old school style of animation which might be jarring if you're not used to characters constantly going into chibi mode a lot and literally pulling hammers out of hammerspace for comedic effect. I think it adds to the show's charm but it's definitely not a style you see in most modern anime. I also enjoy Angelic Layer as a unique twist on the shonen fighting tournament genre. Angelic Layer is a bit more straightforward but it has a lot of heart and some strong characterization and it's fairly short to watch at only 26 episodes. If you don't mind a show that has a lot more mature humor to it, I think Chobits is also worth checking out.

Isn't this thread about the similarities between SM and Card Captor Sakura? It seems we've veered off topic to other animes...

I remember that I was a big fan of CCS...and I thought that Sailor Moon 90s anime was too violent... :ohdear:

CCS is good...but it had TOO MANY episodes that were fillers!! =^_^=
and all of CCS was too childish!! (and no...Yukito and Shaoran relationship didn t change it!! :ohdear:
oh yes...I konw that Yue s powers were the reason...but anyway!! :ohdear: )

I think that Sailor Moon is better...but that doesn t mean that I wouldn t watch the CCS sequel!! :keke:

Hmm... well in a way they're similar because both protagonists of the show are young girls who discover that they have magical powers and have to save the world and all. And they're both Mahou Shoujo series. One difference is like for instance, Sailor Moon has a whole team (the Inner Senshi) that pretty much help her out with the Monster of the Day, etc. whereas Sakura usually fights alone (with the exception of Tomoyo and Kero-chan and before Shaoran Li and Mei Ling). I like how both shows kinda center around the main character(s) and have some slight drama and romances. One major thing that they have in common is that they both had dubs that were EXTREMELY bad. Not to sound like I'm bashing the DiC dub, but it's terrible compared to the original version. The CWi dub wasn't any better but it was watchable. With CCS's dub (I think a Canadian company called Nelvana dubbed it) , holy jelly fish donut was it bad! For one, they changed the title of the show to Cardcaptors, had a cringey ballad type theme song, changed and cut certain episodes out (including playing some episodes out of order), got rid of a lot of the romance between characters, made the series somewhat centered more around Shaoran Li and Mei Ling, and they kept pronouncing Sakura's name as SACK-CURE-RA. Sorry for the rant but I love both shows and they are similar but are different in many ways lol

There's the Nelvana dub which has the better voice acting but has more severe censorship cuts and plot rewrites. The Nelvana dub for the series has long been out of print and is hard to find. The only bit of the Nelvana dub you can still get is Discotek's home video release of the first movie contains both the Japanese and Nelvana dub. The other dub is the Animax Asia dub which is available on the new NIS America DVD. The Animax Asia dub is more faithful to the original but the dubbing wasn't done by an American studio and has worse voice acting. Neither dub is all that good and I would just stick to the Japanese version. If you plan to buy CCS on DVD or Blu Ray, I would highly recommend getting the NIS America release as soon as you can as NIS is trying to get out of the anime business and we don't know how much longer they'll be available. You can buy the NIS release at most online stores that sell anime like Right Stuf and Amazon.
