Cardcaptor Sakura super fun young girl magical girl.
A sailor suit that actually includes the awesome hat! Its very neat that the boys wear basically the same thing as the girls too. Shorts instead of a skirt of course!
The older students in this show get to wear baby blue jackets with a school crest on there. Can't say I'm a fan of these.
Overall: I'd consider it just because it's CCS.
From the anime Cardcaptor Sakura, Syaoran Li is a distant relative of Clow Reed, the creator of the Clow Cards. He is a member of the Li clan of sorcerers from Hong Kong. Syaoran believes that he should be the one to inherit the Clow Cards because of his lineage and not Sakura Kinomoto. Since he believes this he acts very cold and rude to Sakura and starts off as her rival. Soon he'll see how he truly feels about his ways.
Why I like him: I love how he is the tsundere roll in the anime. Generally that is taken by a chick but it was fun to see a male in that spot. Watching the entire series to see Movie 2 was well worth it.
Why I hate him: He was super moody for no real good reason half the time. Maybe it was the hormones XD
Sixth for The 12 Days of Christmas: romance moments is Card Captor Sakura movie 2 The Sealed Card. These 12 Days of Christmas posts aren’t in any particular order. I just choose moments that actually made me feel all warm and squishy inside. Be sure to check out animemiz’s scribbling’s and Unmei Kaihen and Eternal's blogs for more 12 Days posts and there are plenty of other ones out there as well! Oh and there might be spoilers about so read at your own risk. I'm pretty sure there is a spoiler in this post. You have been warned.
Gooshy magical girl series have never really been my thing. Sure I liked Sailor Moon and all, but I was a kid back then. XD I actually just this summer watched the entire series of Cardcaptor Sakura and I wasn't captivated by it as I hoped I would be. I hear people say that it's the best magical girl series out there but I sadly have to disagree because I found the series boring. So how can a series that bored me to death actually have a gushy romance moment of mine captured. Movie 2 of course.
Who? Syaoran and Sakura
Why they are adorable: For characters that I didn't care about at all while watching the series they touched me at the end of this movie with this one little priceless moment.
That moment alone made sitting through the entire series to get to this movie worth every minute. Clamp anime for the most part always manage to have some awesome redeeming value to a show that I found to be mediocre.
Cheesy video alert (it's so well done though I couldn't help but to put it in here :P)
The second installment of my decades list brings us to Movies of 2000-2009. The Movies were a lot easier to do than the OVA's. At first it came out to 19 so it was very easy to pick just one more to make it an even 20. The ordering was pretty easy as well I found.
Lots of other bloggers have already put up their lists and you can find them all listed over on Kitsune's page. Check them out! There's a lot of great lists to be had for all those list crazy people! Also don't forget to check out my OVA's list if you missed it.
Ok, here we go with the movies!
20.) Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie 2: The Sealed Card (2000) - Now don't take this as I'm a CCS fan girl. Far from it. I just thought this movie was the best the entire series had to offer. It actually ended and actually made me care about the characters. Something that the series couldn't do.
19.) Arashi no Yoru Ni (2005) -Sure it's your typical, wolf meets goat story and they become friends. They get shunned by their own kind and then bad things start to happen. There is a nice message within this movie and it should not be missed because of animal protagonists.
18.) Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek (2004) - This short horror flick was actually successful in being pretty creepy. Which I find amazing as most anime in the horror genre aren't all that scary. With the cold dark animation and the chilling sound. This movie is sure to make you rethink what may be around that dark corner in the night.
17.) Nasu: Suitcase no Wataridori (2007) -An amazing follow up to Summer in Andalusia. Throws in more jokes and continues to shine right where the 1st one left off with a whole new setting yet the very same goal.
16.) Interstella 5555 - The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem (2003) - Daft punk animated in space. Hell yes. Awesome music, entertaining visuals. Nothing more needs to be said.
15.) Kino's Journey: Life Goes On (2005) - After sitting through all of Kino's Journey it left me asking a lot of questions and wanting to know more about Kino in general. This movie gave me exactly what I was looking for. A great background story about Kino when she first started out with her adventurous ways.
14.) Howl's Moving Castle (2004) - This is one of my all time favourite Ghibli movies. Such wondrous adventures await these spectacular characters. With magical encounters at every turn this movie does not disappoint.
13.) Metropolis (2001) -This movie was my very first anime DVD I bought (all other stuff before it was on VHS :P) Sci-fi with robots it's best. Engaging characters and a killer plot, it'll keep you on the edge right till the very end.
12.) Steamboy (2005) - Steam punk never fails to entertain. Big huge machines and the stories of the people that deal with them everyday. They take you on one wild ride and won't let up till they have served you well. I've always loved the dark and gritty feel that the animation gives off.
11.) Mind Game (2004) -Perfect title for a oh so messed up flick. It kept me wondering what on earth was going on all the way through, while visually stimulating my brain. Studio 4C never disappoints!
10.) Tokyo Godfathers (2003) - A baby, homeless people, Christmas, and trannies. What more could I ask for in a movie?! lol ok well it might not be for everyone but it makes for a great Christmas movie to watch with the family... No seriously... LOL
9.) Millennium Actress (2001) - Following the story of an old retired actress she give one last interview diving into her memories which are mixed with real and fake memories from her movies that she stared in. This movie was a wonderful surprise in how enjoyable it was considering the constant jumping around it did. A tad confusing at times but it delivers in telling this womans fantastic story in a creative way.
8.) Resident Evil: Degeneration (2008) - I'm a HUGE RE fan and when this came out I was never happier. Seeing the wonderful work the animators did was simply amazing. Had some cute jokes thrown in here and there for the fans as well. Who can say no to delicious zombies?
7.) Kara no Kyoukai (2007 - 2009) -The Garden of Sinners is an amazing story with drool inducing graphics. Just watch!
6.) Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (2006) - Sci-Fi, romance, and time travel! I think I have a thing for time travel as almost anything that has that element in it I end up liking. At first I thought it was just going to be a boring slice of life show but I was pleasantly surprised with how things turned out. The characters are all lovable and keep you wanting to watch to see what happens.
5.) Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade (2000) - Dark and deep this movie will keep you on your toes to guess what happens next. Shocking consequences occur for main characters that you soon won't forget.
4.) Nasu: Summer in Andalusia (2003) - Who would have thought a movie about cycling could hold such a fantastic story and keep me interested. Sure it's about Pepe riding a bike pretty much the entire movie but that is exactly what made it so special. If anyone can make something as boring as that entertaining I'm all for it.
3.) Oseam (2003) -A touching South Korean film filled with tragedy and adventure. I can not simply express how amazing this movie is. It touched me in a way that not many anime has been able to. It moved me to tears and I hope others get the exact enjoyment out of it that I did.
2.) Fullmetal Alchemist The Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa (2005) - The adventure continues and ends with this amazing movie from the FMA series. Sure some people didn't like how it ended or how it was done. But it certainly pleased me and I was glued to the screen the entire time I watched this movie as I didn't want to miss a single moment. I can re-watch this movie at anytime.
1.) Cowboy Bebop The Movie (2001) - Everyone's back and as entertaining as ever in this wonderful movie. I just sat back and enjoyed the ride in what this movie had to offer me. Lots of action, awesome characters, and a driving plot. It never fails to entertain no matter how many times I've seen it.
Look forward to the next in line for the decades list! My Top 60 Series of 2000-2009.
