'Cardcaptop Sakura: Clear Card, Vol. 1' by CLAMP is a manga that's a bit out of what I would normally read, but I thought I'd give it a try. It's filled with all the bubbliness of high school kids having really great days.
First off, if you aren't familiar with these characters, you might be a bit lost, like I was. There are brief character bios (and there are a LOT of characters), and also a bit of a synopsis that leads up to this point. Beyond that, you are kind of on your own.
Sakura is a middle school student who sees magical cards, except this time around they are clear. Her friend Syaoran is back from China. Her brother is a brat to her, even though he is in college. Her mother is gone, and her dad seems to have single parenting wired with all his domestic talents. He doesn't seem phazed by his daughter's weird talents and friends.
The art is pretty cute. I liked the story, even though I was lost through most of it. It's not really my thing, but I'm glad I gave it a shot.
I received a review copy of this manga from Kodansha Comics and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this manga.
