* ColbertBump: When NIS America announced that they're releasing the series with the Hong Kong-English Animax dub, along with the fact that it's on Crunchyroll (and Netflix for some european countries such as Spain or Germany), many people checked it out due to sheer curiosity. Now because of its newfound exposure, there's a BrokenBase over whether the Animax or Nelvana dub is better (or ''worse'').

* OneHitWonder: Sakura's Castillian Spanish voice actress, Isabel Gaudí, is pretty much known only for this work. She had just one important work before voicing Sakura, and afterwards went to voice only a handful of minor roles before retiring from voice acting altogether and turning to sporadic TV acting.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: In the ''Clear Card'' arc, Tomoyo still uses a camcorder which looked out of place in the story's SettingUpdate to TheNewTens. Many commentators noted that it's jarring to see Sakura using a smartphone while her best friend is still using a camcorder with some people suggesting that she could have use other handheld devices which are readily more convenient than the camcorder. However, the camcorder is a signature to Tomoyo's appearance and it is still being sold and used today with improved features. This is also addressed InUniverse, with Tomoyo mentioning the video quality suffers when being captured by a smartphone.

Added DiffLines:

* ChannelHop: In English markets, the original manga alone went from Creator/{{Tokyopop}} to Creator/DarkHorseComics to Kodansha Comics USA. The anime is even more complicated; within just the US, it went from Creator/{{Nelvana}}, with [[Creator/{{Geneon}} Pioneer]] handling the home video and subtitled version distribution, to Pioneer outright with the second film, to NIS America for the series and Creator/DiscotekMedia for the movies. This isn't even putting the ''[[Manga/CardcaptorSakuraClearCard Clear Card]]'' series into account, with Kodansha Comics USA handling the manga and Crunchyroll handling the anime license, with Creator/FUNimation handling the dub and the home video releases.

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: The most likely reason why Creator/DarkHorseComics' license with the original manga expired; they got the license not too long before Japanese publisher Kodansha decided to form a US division for bringing over their manga library themselves, and Kodansha chose not to let Dark Horse renew the license.


* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The series was this for a long time in English after Pioneer/Geneon folded. The TV series is now in print on DVD and/or Blu-ray from NIS America (North America) and Madman (Australia/New Zealand), and the first movie is on DVD/Blu-ray from Discotek. However, the second movie remains out-of-print, and no part of the series is legally available in the UK. In addition, aside from the first movie, no part of the Nelvana dub is legally available anywhere, and much of it was ''never'' released to disc.
** The second film is set to reappear in select theaters. Time will tell if this will lead to a rerelease, but it's something.

Added DiffLines:

** In the Latin American Spanish dub of the Clear Card Arc, Syaoran's voice actor is replaced from Uraz Huerta to Memo Aponte, as the former is too old to voice him anymore. Also, someone will have to replace Fujitaka's voice actor, as his previous one (Enrique Mederos) already died.


** In Spain, the movies were bought by a different distributor from the series's, and they gave it completely new voice cast, despite the original cast from the series being disponible for a special work like they did with the ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' movie the same year. This gratuitous change (which came complete with a perceivedly shoddy translation, unlike the accurate adaptation made with the series) was deeply disliked by the fandom, and a redub with the original voices was asked for years to no avail.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Sakura's dub voice actress received a lot of flack for sounding too much like a teenager or like a boy due to her low-pitched tone. In reality, [=Carly McKillip=] was 11 when she started doing the voice.

* CareerResurrection: After their career fluctuated with the controversial ''Tsubusa Chronicle'' and ''xxxHolic'' endings, the negative reception of ''Anime/BloodC'' and their newer works which are a hit-or-miss, CLAMP released the sequel of ''Cardcaptor Sakura'' in 2016 which earned good sales and a 2018 anime series with the old cast and staff returning.
* CharacterOutlivesActor: ''Clear Card Arc'' has Rika move to another school, which is especially fitting given her Japanese voice actress, Creator/TomokoKawakami, died years prior to the sequel series.

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, in Brazil, the entire original cast of the anime returned for the 2nd movie... except Sakura, who was replaced by no one other than ''SailorMoon'''s voice actress. The irony here is that Sakura's original voice actress were the successor to Sailor Moon's, whereas Sailor Moon's were the successor to Sakura's. But even with the mythology gags and the rest of the original cast involved, as expected, the fandom ''did not'' like it.
