* FandomBerserkButton: Simply mentioning ''[[{{Macekre}} Cardcaptors]]'' is enough to provoke many hardcore fans' ire. While other highly edited dubs such as ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Anime/YuGiOh'' still have substantial fanbases who defend them primarily on the basis of nostalgic value, this happens less often for ''Cardcaptor Sakura'' since its English fanbase is significantly smaller.

* 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 Li'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 Li and Sakura feel about each other.



* EndingFatigue: The anime's third season. While it has some great monents, a lot of episodes follow the [[StrictlyFormula same formula]] of Eriol causing some trouble and Sakura fixing it while sensing Clow Reed's presence, which makes it feel quite repetitive (see {{Narm}} below). Additionally, the big "twist" that the season builds up to, [[spoiler:that is, that Eriol is Clow's reincarnation and wants to put Sakura to test]], is [[CaptainObviousReveal pretty easy to guess]] for anyone older than twelve.

* RecycledScript: You'd have observed by now that many, many portions and ideas from The Second Movie were recycled in the plot of ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''.

* SugarBowl: It isn't a world so straw as to bash anyone for not being a part of their happy land (mainly because [[spoiler: the series doesn't even have a real bad guy]]), but Creator/{{CLAMP}} purposely made ''Card Captor Sakura'' a place where there is acceptance of all minorities, sexual orientations, children, adults, boys, girls... to set a good example for the children growing up watching it. You'll notice that there are no malicious adults in this series. At all. The few adult characters that start out looking like they might spoil for a fight (for example, Sonomi's aggression towards Fujitaka) are quickly resolved and they join the Big Happy Family).



%%** Ruby Moon and Spinel Sun.%%



* VocalDissonance: Nelvana dub decides to give RidiculouslyCuteCritter Kero 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.

* GirlShowGhetto: For the most part its averted thanks to its engaging characters (and the fact that Tomoyo designs costumes just so she can throw Sakura into them), interesting story, and some dark undertones, though some haters may accuse it of falling into this somewhat due to its normally bright and idealistic nature and in-universe romance... pretty much why Cardcaptors, the edited dub, exists.

* {{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 "Li as main character", which was mostly caused by Creator/KidsWB leaving out several episodes (the first episode aired is Li's debut, the ''eighth'' episode) and promotions playing up Syaoran's role much more.

** In the 2nd ''Clear Card'' ending, Suppi becomes rather attached to Kero when he eats sweets. The final shot has the two of them ''cuddling'' together as they sleep.

** Kero would also have benefited from his backstory being explored more. His true from is not shown often, which is a shame.

** You got to wonder why this show pushes aside all its more unique characters in favor of the generically designed anime people and weird romances.
