Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?
The cheery Kobato Hanato is on a mission to heal people’s damaged hearts and gather the resulting “konpeito”; she must collect one hundred of these candy-shaped trophies in order for her deepest wish to be granted: to go to a certain place. Along the way, she’s accompanied by an ever-disgruntled, talking stuffed animal of a guardian named Ioryogi who scores her efforts, attempts to keep her on-track, and reminds her of the rules governing her task: she only has one year to fulfill her goal and she must not, under any circumstance, fall in love with someone whose heart she heals.
I watched CCS first and to me, it's still the top story that CLAMP's created. It's a very stereotypical story about a magical girl and her episodic adventures, but CCS stands out in the way it's told, the character development and how the romance shines in the second half.
Kobato is exactly the same. The beginning is cliche and boring to some people, but the ride is worthwhile because it deals with real scenarios with realistic solutions and feelings. I loved how Kobato and Sakura's personalities reminded me of each other ^^ They're both too perfect and care too much about others.
CLAMP really does love their absurdly innocent/naive/adorable female protagonists, don't they? Kobato and Sakura are impossible to dislike, as are the series they star in. Both are refreshingly sweet and simple, and, though they take a while to grow on you, rather enjoyable and heartwarming.
Ah yes, for all those who love Shojo, Clamp will always be a group of goddesses. Kobato and Cardcaptor Sakura are two of the most innocent animes that Clamp has created and both of them are very similar to each other.
Let us start with the cast. The main characters (Kobato and Sakura) are incredibly purehearted, laugh and smile at everything, give their best at everything they do, always try to help people, are both a little dense and lack common sense. They both meet a grumpy who warms up thanks to the main character's kindness and ends up with the main character.
Then there's the stuffed animal that accompanies and guides the main character. Although their personalities are rather different, they both love to eat and learn to love the main character.
Also, both animes involve magic and both main characters don't really understand the magic, which mostly has to do with the main character who has forgotten something important. Therefore, there is a bit of a mystery part that stays there until the very end.
I could state a lot more similarities, but then, I would spoil too much and sit here until the next day. So let me just say this; both anime's have a comedic and romantic feel to it and both are insanely cute. If you like one, you will most definetely like the other.
One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...
Both seires deal with young magical girls that have similar protagonists. Both stories also have values carried in the friendships of the characters that determine the thoughts and decisions of both Madoka and Sakura.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica and Card Captor Sakura are about young girls who fight for the safety of others without thinking in their own..and they are the only ones with the power to do it.
So...if you liked one you'll probably like the other.
Cardcaptor Sakura seems like the child version of Madoka Magica. While Sakura battles the forces of the cards to get everything under control; in Madoka Magica, they are still battling forces like these.Sakura and Madoka both have friends they turn to rely on and they both having to end up relying on themselves. Kyubey and Kero are alike in these companions they have always near by, trying to support them into going the way they want.But I would say to watch Cardcaptor Sakura first, and then when you think you've grown up some and can really think about different complexities watch Madoka Magica. You can't go wrong with either show that you watch.
Masaharu Tsuwabaki ('Haru') had been living a more or less normal school life until, one day, he accidentally drinks a potion that transforms him into a tiny doll-like lamb at night. To lift this curse and return to normal, he must work with his "chosen girl" Sumomo Akihime, a very shy girl in his class. She is given powers by a magical ring, and together they must hunt down mystical artifacts called stardrops in order to return him to normal. At the same time, Tsuwabaki must keep his daytime identity a secret from Sumumo as well as keep their ability to use magic hidden. As he lives this double life, he grows closer and closer to Sumomo in both his human and sheep forms.
Both series are about little girl who gets magical powers to help in her quest to collect something back. Also, both girls have the help of a cute little animal.
Both series are about collecting magical items, Clow cards in Card Captor Sakura and stardrops in Nanatsuiro drops. Another similairity is the romance aspect. All though Sakura is younger then Sumomo, both feature the same cute and innocent first romance. And of course where would both series be without some rivals to meddle in it all!
Both anime have a lead female character with a magical mission thrust upon them. Ever willings as any main heroine would be, they take up the challenge. Having magical powers and collecting things and even having a little stuffed animal-like partner, you'd think one took the general concept from the other. Both are fun to watch and can leave you feeling very fluffy at times. If you like one, you very well should like the other.
Saga is an ordinary girl who lives her life by planning everything ahead of time. Unfortunately, having a waffle-loving Snow fairy called Sugar follow her home was not a part of these plans! Together with apprentice fairies Salt and Pepper, Sugar must find the 'twinkles' that will make their magical flowers blossom, thus turning them into fully fledged season fairies. The trouble is, none of them actually knows what a 'twinkle' is! And so, with help from Saga and other friends, the trio begin their search, whilst having fun and perfecting their magic along the way.
Card Captor Sakura and A Little Snow Fairy Sugar are vibrant, magic-filled series targeted at younger girls. The protagonists of each has a (generally) good-natured "rival", and stumbles upon a chatty, flying, magical thing who loves sweets, and soon become inseparable. Additionally, they have similar atmospheres.
A Little Snow Fairy Sugar looks like a grown-up version of Card Captor Sakura. With a little older characters. But instead, Card Captor Sakura doesn't include fairies, but it includes magical girls. Card Captor Sakura reminded me much of A Little Snow Fairy Sugar as well as the other anime related to it, Bottle Fairy. The kids both have mothers that passed on when they were younger and learn to come of age, and try to please their dead mothers. Tomoya reminds me so much of Greta because she helps Sakura like Greta helps Saga.
In the near future, the internet has evolved into ComNet, a virtual reality world where people can play to their hearts' content. However, a malicious computer known as Grosser is causing chaos in the realm, sending dastardly programs to wreak havoc. Young Yui was just a typical girl with a not-so-typical illiteracy with computers, until a program known as IR recruited her to become a Corrector and fight against Grosser's evil doings! Armed with elemental suits, Yui will traverse feudal Japan, a land of fairytales and a number of other virtual worlds in an attempt to find the other Corrector programs and foil Grosser's gang!
The protagonists are a little clumsy, but give the best to protect those around them. They have a yellow guardian that will support them (and will make you laugh sometimes). Also, the "romance" is very similar. Two girls have their "platonic love": an older guy who is sweet and takes care of them.
Corrector Yui is more futuristic, but both have the same magic that make you love all the characters!
I think Card Captor Sakura is very similar to Corrector Yui, because, they're both around charcters that want to help people and have a lot of costumes, and they both ask help to do it, i meaan , in ...Yui... she asks help from the other correctors, and in ...Sakura... she uses the cards.
