I’m not usually a fan of these types of series, but Cardcaptor Sakura has always been a personal favourite of mine; eitherway the Blu-ray set has arrived and it’s now time to unbox it “Hoorah!”

Where to begin; well the Premium Edition of Cardcaptor Sakura contains the entire series (70 episodes) over 9 Blu-ray discs; each of which have been remastered in 1080p and left in their original 4:3 aspect ratio; but wait thats not all. This American release feature both the original Japanese Audio (with English subtitles) along with the rare Singapore/Asian Animax English Dub – a Dub which has ‘never’ been released outside of asian countires and as such makes this set ‘extra’ special. The discs also house a clean opening and closing animations as well as a wide selection of trailers for other NIS America releases. Read more of this post
