* ValuesDissonance: This series has an astonishingly casual view of May/December teacher/student relationships, which would had induced a lot more uproar if it was released in the present. 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, Rika, 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 Mr. Terada to her ''fearing'' him, which is rather needless anyway since the anime has him completely oblivious to her PrecociousCrush. Upon the release of the ''Clear Card'' arc in 2016, Rika is written out in the sequel, likely to avoid any uncomfortable implications concerning her relationship with her teacher.

** Many fans outside Japan [[TheScrappy hate Terada]] (a teacher in his 30s) due to his inappropriate and pedophilic relationship with the 10 year-old Rika in the manga. Rika also receives hate as a result and sometimes even gets accusations of being a mary sue.

** Sakura starts off as a small example of an adorable and endearing character, but by the end of the series she is probably a {{Trope Codifier}}. Hell, Sakura even won the first ever Saimoe Tournament. (The TV show certainly marks the point at which the anime ''production companies'' noticed the [[PeripheryDemographic Peripheral Demographic]] that sprang up around characters like her, and their [[CashCowFranchise buying power]].) This is toned down slightly in the Nelvana dub, where she is given a more 'tomboyish' attitude and some of her 'cuter' or more vulnerable aspects are edited out.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The relationship between Rika and Terada is very controversial which lead to countless debate whether it is considered sweet or disgusting. The 2016 sequel, the ''Clear Card'' arc, removes Rika and Terada to prevent further controversy.

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.

* OvershadowedByControversy: Rika Sasaki, who her teacher infamously had a crush on, was written out of the Clear Card arc in a conscious effort to defy this in the wake of the growing backlash against the sexualization of underage girls in Japan. A relationship like this, while it might have been OK in the late '90s with a justification that appeared in the manga (specifically, a mutual agreement that Rika would wait until she was old enough to officially hook up with him), would not be anywhere near as kosher under any circumstance in the new tens.


** The series was also extremely popular in Spain. Along with ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' and others, ''CCS'' was one of the most popular anime series brought 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 part of the mentioned batch). Its [[SuperlativeDubbing particularly well-made dub and adaptation]] makes it stand out as well.

* 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.

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).

* 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.
