Card Captor Sakura, often abbreviated as CCS, is a 90s anime based on a Japanese manga of the same name, written and illustrated by the manga group Clamp. It went into serialization from May 1996 to June 2000. The anime is a Shoujo one with adventure, comedy, drama, fantasy, and romance as its main themes. It was taken up by Madhouse, the studio behind famous anime like Death Note, directed by Morio Asaka and produced by Eizo Kondo.
The basic premise fits the mold of a Mahou shoujo anime. There is more to it than just being a classic or a well-known anime. It is an illustration of a series that, in order to achieve the highest level of quality, was not afraid to experiment and defy accepted genre norms. It is mainly a lighthearted and fun series. Although the anime has a young target audience and a reputation for being family-friendly, it also addresses some surprisingly taboo subjects. There are also homosexual feelings between two significant characters, as well as a forbidden romance between a teacher and a student. CCS is an excellent work that gives the genre and anime, in general, a new life.
Card Captor Sakura Season 4 Release Date
The series, even though not announced as canceled by the studio, is highly likely to not return because it has already concluded its story in 3 previous seasons with a total of 70 episodes and 2 movies. The 70 episodes of the three seasons ran from April 7, 1998, to March 21, 2000, almost 22 years ago. And the two movies, Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie and Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card, followed after it, concluding the story of Sakura.
Even though the studio didn’t officially cancel the series, it is as good as not coming back.

Card Captor Sakura Season 1 to 3 Recap
In the previous seasons, we met Sakura, a happy-go girl who one day stumbles across some strange cards and accidentally spills them. Unbeknownst to her, they are not some normal cards but special type cards in which some strange monsters are sealed.
When the cards are spilled, the monsters scatter everywhere around the world. She then meets a cute lion-like caricature serving as her guardian and mentor, who helps guide her in the quest of finding and capturing all 53 monsters.
Some card monsters are very dangerous, and some are timid. Now it’s up to Sakura to capture them on the card again. Once she captures a monster, she can use it to her will. Things start to change when Sakura’s love interest, Syaoran Li, is introduced in the story.
He himself wants to catch the cards. He first antagonizes Sakura, but soon they both fall in love, and as the story progresses, we see their relationship developing with satisfaction.
In the end, we see a very happy ending where Sakura has captured all the monsters and her love has come true.
