Cardcaptor Sakura (at first glance)

Sakura Kinomoto is your garden-variety ten-year-old fourth grader, until one day, she stumbles upon a mysterious book containing a set of cards. Unfortunately, she has little time to divine what the cards mean because she accidentally stirs up a magical gust of wind and unintentionally scatters the cards all over the world. Suddenly awakened from the book, the Beast of the Seal, Keroberos, tells Sakura that she has released the mystical Clow Cards. The Cards are no ordinary playthings. Each of them possesses incredible powers and now that the Cards are set free, they pose a grave danger upon the world, and it is up to Sakura to prevent the Cards from causing a catastrophe!
Appointing Sakura the title of “the Cardcaptor” and granting her the Sealed Key, Keroberos tasks her with finding and recapturing all the Cards. Alongside her best friend Tomoyo Daidouji, and with Kero-chan’s guidance, Sakura must learn to balance her new secret duty with the everyday troubles of a young girl involving love, family, and school, all while she takes flight on her magical adventures as Sakura the Cardcaptor.

To be Honest I didn’t expect to care for Cardcaptor Sakura, but after having watched a few episodes so far I am starting to really like the series.
The animaton is pretty good, but it’s the story adn charactrs that pull you in. Personaly I am really liking Sakura’s friend Tomoyo Daidouji who not only wants to document her friend but is insisting on designing Sakura’s costume and helping with the trademark pose that every magical girl must have.
I am really looking forward to watching more episodes.
