Booklist Review

Fourth-grader Sakura has a magical destiny: she must capture the escaped Clow Cards and save the world from destruction! CLAMP's classic manga series (originally published in the U.S. in a 12-volume, two-series run) is being rereleased in remastered and newly translated omnibus editions that collect three books each. This omnibus is not just longer but is also taller than the average manga, allowing a clearer view of CLAMP's detailed artwork. Devoted fans will be thrilled with the included color illustrations from the original series and additional bonus images. Even with some very tame hints at romance (including between teachers and students), there is nothing that keeps this series from being fun for manga readers of all ages. The girl-power theme is a nice touch, but there's enough adventure and humor for both genders to enjoy (as long as boys will look past the pink cover).--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2010 Booklist
