During an after-school shopping trip, Sakura Kinomoto decides to participate in the Tomoeda Shopping District's year-end lottery, with the grand prize being a round trip to Hong Kong. Surprisingly, she draws the winning ball. Alongside her best friend Tomoyo Daidouji, her older brother Touya, her crush Yukito Tsukishiro, and Keroberos, Sakura heads off to Hong Kong.

However, vacation for the Cardcaptor will get cut short. Little does Sakura know, the trip may be connected to her recent, prophetic dreams featuring a mysterious woman and Clow Reed himself, creator of the Clow Cards.

When I found out about this anime I was really excited about it. When I found out there were movies too, I got even more excited. So I started watching the anime and it did not disappoint me, in fact; it probably is one of my favorite animes.

Yet the movie did disappoint me. A little bit, though, I still thought it was a good movie but it just didn't quite reach the anime-awesomeness.

It was an okay movie I guess. It was a 5/10 or 6/10 movie, though I'm leaning more towards 5/10. This movie isn't really necessary to watch imo. Though it wasn't bad, so meh. It mentions a few lore specifics, but doesn't really expand it much. I guess to show people who used to date? Though this movie revealing past lovers doesn't really add much to it. It feels more so like a cash grab, than something that expands the world and is necessary. I think I get where it might tie into the next arc with ...

I recognize that this is basically just an anime-original episode of the show, and if it was literally an anime-original episode, I may not have minded it. There were plenty of individual episodes that were a bit weak compared to the others, but the big difference is that they were only 20 minutes long and usually at least implied some progression. The first Cardcaptor Sakura movie is a waste of time that lasts for a long 90 minutes.

It's about Sakura winning a trip to Hong Kong during the winter break of her first year as a Cardcaptor. This was a horrible idea, possibly the worst ...
