** CLAMP revisiting ''CCS'' by releasing a sequel manga and a (promised) new anime series is considered to be great by many, in order to bring back those nostalgia feelings which would serve as a CareerResurrection for the authors. However, after the controversial endings and sequels of ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' and ''Manga/{{xxxHOLiC}}'', many people are annoyed that CLAMP are recklessly milking ''CCS'', and would rather want them to continue their old and new works that had been put into a hiatus instead of risking screwing up yet ''another'' of their flagship series.

** When Sakura's father speaks to her class about his job, Syaoran shows quite a bit of intrest in archaeology. Come ''Tsubasa'', that version of Syaoran is an AdventurerArchaeologist.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** Any dialogue with Yamazaki.
** During the segments where Sakura tries to identify the Clow card of the week and their current movement, Kero and Sakura used the cards for fortune telling and determined that 'The Mirror' card is targeting Touya. The fortune telling abillity is never foreshadowed, never used by anyone else (Not even Clow himself) and is never mentioned again. Though that's only in the anime; the manga mentions it early on in regards to the Fly card.

** Kero's voice in Spain is a huge breaking point even among people who unambiguously approve the entire dub. Some think that turning his KansaiAccent into a pseudo-Mexican accent was an error and ruins the character, others like it because it gives flavour to Kero and was the most logic decision to keep the original language cues (the alternative, as said in the Kansai-ben article, would have been giving him an Andalusian accent, and that's not exactly a popular idea among pundits) and others just think of it as NarmCharm.

** The series was also extremely popular in Spain, to the point it is one of the few anime series that people who are not into the genre can recognize when not thinking on AllAnimeAreNaughtyTentacles. Along with ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' and others, ''CCS'' was one of the first anime series brought by RTVE in TheNineties, and it is pretty much the first thing a Spaniard sees in his mind when thinking of the MagicalGirl genre (that even considering that ''Manga/SailorMoon'' was also a part of the mentioned batch). Its particularly well made dub and adaptation makes it stand out as well.

* UnfortunateImplications: Terada-sensei in the manga, for doing something like giving a child (not to even mention student) he's responsible for and influences as an adult authority figure a ring with the dream of marrying them in the future. Even when not taking earthly reality into account, enough ''said.''

* {{Narm}}: When Syaoran, upon being confused on who he truly likes, Yukito or Sakura stumbles into the latter. In the manga, they had gone into FirstNameBasis earlier thus she calls him Syaoran-kun making her joy seemed genuine as is he is one of her closest friends. But in the anime she calls him Li-kun as they are still on a LastNameBasis since this is before they get trapped in an elevator. This makes this moment less impactful as being called by last name is the equivalent of being more formal towards each other like an ordinary friend instead of someone special.

** You can make a drinking game of just how much they keep saying "Clow Reed's presence". One or two times is tolerable but saying it at every single episode of season 3 then it starts to become annoying. Heck it even goes to the point when Sakura sits on a chair, she immediately says "Clow Reed's presence" on something so mundane.

* ValuesDissonance: This series has an astonishingly casual view of May/December teacher/student relationships. Sakura's mother and father met when he was a high school teacher and she was a highschool student. Sakura's older brother and his (student) teacher had a brief romance, but dropped it for reasons that had nothing to do with age inappropriateness and more with [[spoiler: her leaving ''and'' knowing that they'd fall for others]]. One of Sakura's prepubescent classmates has a crush on their teacher... and in the manga, he returns it! And this is shown as romantic and dreamy. Nelvana even changed a line about Rika liking Terada-sensei to her ''fearing'' him, which is rather needless anyway since the anime has him completely oblivious to her PrecociousCrush.
* VocalDissonance: Nelvana dub decides to give Kero, a cute and tiny little critter, the voice of a 20-something year old man with a surfer tone. The Latin-American, Spanish and Portuguese dubs are guilty of this too, even though they're known for SuperlativeDubbing. Conversely, the Sealed Card movie and the Spanish Catalan dub give him more suitable voices for both his plushy and beast forms.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: Nelvana, with "Cardcaptors", was responsible for much of the cast getting a DubNameChange and removed all romantic subplots of any kind (not all convincingly). The US broadcast on Creator/KidsWB attempted to [[{{Shonen}} widen the show's appeal]] beyond its [[{{Shojo}} original demographic]] by switching the focus from strictly Sakura's point of view and pushing the idea of Sakura and supporting character Li Syaoran being more like partners by rearranging and splicing episodes and tweaking scripts. This would have actually been convenient in later episodes, which play a lot more from Syaoran's perspective and give him a rather prominent partnership with Sakura, unfortunately the unwanted romantic context of most of this footage actually led them to take out a lot of the character's relevance. And even with all the butchering they did, they couldn't remove the subtexts. It's still pretty obvious how Syaoran and Sakura feel about each other.

** Nelvana and Creator/KidsWB's attempts to boost Syaoran as a co-lead in the ''Cardcaptors'' dub come off as ironic following his gradual evolution as BreakoutCharacter for the original anime (and CLAMP media as a whole). Even more ironic since it was through a romantic arc, which Nelvana had attempted to omit all traces of.

* {{Misblamed}}: Creator/FourKidsEntertainment often takes heat for Cardcaptors from people who don't know all of the facts. Nelvana itself gets unfairly maligned for the "Syaoran as main character", which was mostly caused by Creator/KidsWB leaving out several episodes (the first episode aired is Syaoran's debut, the ''eighth'' episode) and promotions playing up Syaoran's role much more.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The movies's Spanish dub, which was done by an entirely different cast, had an extremely bad reception among the fans, and a redub was asked for years to no avail.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In contrast to her {{Moe}} character in the original anime, the English dub makes Sakura into more of a tomboy.
