--->-Torika Showron


From the art desk of Clowprincess223 (http://bwillettcomics.com), this doujinshi series was the first this author / artist completed in full and this artist's first doujinshi series. It seems like a stock mahou shoujo / Cardcaptor [[ContinuationFic continuation]] fare, but it [[GrowTheBeard shows its differences]] after a while. The character interactions are very distinct, as the series is a strange amalgam of the [[{{Macekre}} dub]], the [[SubbingVersusDubbing anime]], and the original manga. If you're familiar with Manga/CardcaptorSakura, you'll recognize a lot of reused plot lines, but with different resolutions and characters filling them, so [[NostalgiaFilter it feels like watching the series unfold all over again]].

The series has [[StoryArc three arcs]]:
* [[GottaCatchEmAll The Star Cards]]: Torika becomes a cardcaptor and chases around her mother's former Star Cards. Progressively, we [[DebutQueue meet Torika's friends]] and learn that [[MissingMom Sakura is in a coma]] (similar to how Sakura didn't have her own mother around while growing up... [[LighterAndSofter but not really]]).
* [[ToBeAMaster The Heart Cards]]: In order to bring Sakura out of her coma, Torika must transform the Star Cards she has captured into Heart Cards.
* [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind The Emperor of Nightmares]]: An evil force is stalking Torika's dreams, as well as the dreams of Torika's friends. [[spoiler:On the bright side, Sakura woke up.]]
* Stories From the Sakura Book: A bonus prequel that manages to unify the endings of the anime and the manga into a single continuity, before the events of the main series occur.

[[Characters/CardcaptorTorika Now has a character sheet]]

!!Featured Tropes:

* AllJustADream: The fight scenes in the Emperor of Nightmares arc largely fall under this category.
%%** OrWasItADream
* ArtEvolution: And how! The series basically chronicles the artist getting progressively better and better at drawing.
* BabiesEverAfter: One of the main premises of the entire story is that, not only did [[SpinOffspring nearly everybody from Cardcaptor Sakura become a parent]], but their kids are largely dead ringers for their parents.
* BuryYourGays: Subverted. The atypical pairings of all kinds are skirted around, but still identifiable.
* ButterflyOfDoom: Torika fears causing one of these while attempting to capture the Return Card.
* ContinuationFic
* CoversAlwaysLie: Not once does Torika ever wear the outfit that she wears on the host site?s home page.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: It's Manga/CardcaptorSakura, but with Torika as the Cardcaptor.
* GenerationXerox: Particularly in the earlier chapters, Torika would go through the exact same methods (and plot) to defeat the Clow Cards that her mother used.
* MacGuffin: The [[spoiler:photo album]] in the Heart Card arc, and the [[spoiler:mysterious library book and the "gifts" Jeri / EON gave to Torika]] in the Emperor of Nightmares arc.
* PetTheDog: With the literal dog, Tsuki.
* {{Prequel}}: Stories From the Sakura Book, joining the gap between the second Cardcaptor Sakura movie and the start of Cardcaptor Torika.
* SpinOff: The upcoming ''[[BreakTheCutie Chaos Card Captor Torika]]'' assuming the thing ever makes it out of DevelopmentHell.
