Fourteen-year-old Merleawe has just arrived in Viegald, eager to attend become a great wizard. But on her way to class, she's abducted by the knight Vaith and asked a favor by him and his companions: Merleawe must pretend to be Sylthfarn, the famous boy wizard of the kingdom who is currently missing. With the help of kind Glenn, stern Yue, young Fern and other new friends, Merleawe must continue her studies, learn about the boy she must impersonate, and keep the peace with Viegald's people
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, 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?
Cardcaptor Sakura and Magical x Miracle share many similarities. First of all, both feature a fairly typical female protagonist. Merleawe and Sakura are both hardworking and dedicated, despite having been thrown into their respective situations completely by chance.
Also, many of the characters show parallels between the two series'. For example, Yue from CcS and Yue Alistelaford from MxM are both very similar characters, even without the shared names. Another parallel can be seen between Syaoran from CcS and several MxM characters, such as Fern and Vaith. There are many other comparisons, but these are the ones that seemed to stick out the most.
And last but not least, both share a common cutesy Shoujo art style, although MxM could be considered a bit more modern, as well as better detailed.
All in all, if you enjoyed one, you would most certainly enjoy the other. I know I did.
