Sub is better!
3 March 2002 | by Jusenkyo_no_PikachuSee all my reviews

I first saw two episodes of the series dubbed, and didn't mind it (that's how I saw most of my anime back then). However, now that I have been able to compare the original to a fansub I once saw, the sub was by far superior. In the dub, Sakura sounds 5 years older than she actually is, and Kero has a GUY'S voice. Yuk yuk yuk! Worst of all, the names are Americanised. I haven't seen enough of either to compare episode orders, so all I can say is good is an opening theme (which is played to the same tune as the original) and the end theme.

I now go pretty much mental whenever I hear the accursed title Cardcaptors being mentioned except where it refers solely to Sakura and Li in the show and not the show itself.
