Sakura Kinomoto (木之本 さくら Kinomoto Sakura), named after the Japanese word for "cherry blossom", is the main protagonist of CLAMP's anime and manga series, Cardcaptor Sakura.

Sakura Li from Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE has a similar character design and personality to Sakura. They even share the same name, but they aren't the same person as Sakura Kinomoto appears in the OVA Tsubasa Chronicle: Tokyo Revelations along with Sakura Li.

She and her world are also is mentioned a few times in xxxHolic, such as when Yuuko and Watanuki go through Yuuko's storehouse and find Sakura's Sealing Wand.


She has green eyes and keeps her brown-golden hair above her shoulders. She has bangs and ties her hair in twin sort of tails on each side. She is usually seen smiling and laughing. Her mother has white, pale skin and her father is slightly tanned which gives her a delicate tan hue to her skin. She is of average height and thin.

Sakura tiene el cabello castaño claro cortado justo debajo del mentón y tiene los ojos verdes, por lo general, tiene el cabello atado. Ella es de piel aceitunada y su altura es un poco más corta que la media. Por lo general, cuando no está usando su uniforme escolar, usa lindos vestidos y faldas. Tomoyo hace los disfraces que usa mientras captura las Cartas Clow. La mayoría de las veces, estos trajes tienen alguna referencia a la tarjeta que busca, como un atuendo de tema musical cuando estaba persiguiendo la carta de la canción .


El carácter optimista y confiable de Sakura le permite ser amigable con todos, es muy extrovertido y toda la serie se centra en las amistades que crea con las personas, son extraños, conocidos o rivales. De hecho, su personalidad es un factor dominante en sus relaciones, especialmente con Syaoran Li. Aunque a veces es bastante crédula y se cree que todos los dicen. Su encanto puede ganar a cualquiera (como se muestra con Syaoran en la serie). Se asustó de los fantasmas. Aunque no se puede ver, "un ojo" o "perder una mano", se asustó, por lo tanto, desde que era joven ha sentido un miedo profundo a los fantasmas. Irónicamente, Sakura descubre que el fantasma en el parque es en realidad en una Carta y por lo tanto ya no estaba asustado. Se sabe que no tiene ni idea de las cosas que se relacionan con ella misma, Pero percibe a los demás. Ella es una gran guardiana secreta, sin embargo; cuando se encuentra información sobre sus amigos, por lo general no dice nada,


Sakura wields the Sealing Wand, originally a key she can change it into a staff by saying an incantation. She uses this to seal Clow Cards, release them, return them, make new ones, etc.

For the first half of the series, the staff is a dark pink color with the top looking like a bird's head. But when she becomes the mistress of the Clow Cards, her staff becomes light pink and at the top is a circle with a gold star in the middle, and little wings on the sides, which turn bigger whenever she transforms a Clow Card into a Sakura Card or uses a Sakura Card.

But when Sakura changes the DARK and LIGHT cards, Kerberos and Yue are absorbed into the staff and it becomes a taller version of itself with a spikey gold ball on top.

Sakura is also able to sense the magical presence of others.

Cardcaptor SakuraEdit

Becoming a CardcaptorEdit

Sakura began having strange dreams in the night, seeing herself wearing a costume near the Tokyo Tower with a small creature, various cards flying around her and a strange book. Sakura was confused by the dreams and began having more hallucinations, imaging a staff during cheerleading practice at school. Later that day, after returning home, Sakura heard a strange noise coming from her father's library in the basement. Sakura was afraid as her father and brother weren't home amen believed the sounds to be a possible intruder, but Sakura was brave, determined to face the threat and went down to the basement library. However, much to Sakura's surprise, she didn't find any intruder whatsoever and instead found the source of the noises to be coming from a mysterious glowing book. Sakura discovered the book to be same from her previous dreams and opened it, discovering it contained cards. Sakura picked one and read the name Windy and soon the card activated, causing the rest of the cards from the book to be set free and scatter to various unknown places. Shortly after, a creature similar from Sakura's dream, emerged from the book and introduced himself as Cerberus, the guardian protector of the Clow Cards, only to learn the cards all expect the Windy are gone.

Sakura hides the existence of Cerberus from her family and learns about the Clow Cards. Sakura discovers the cards each possess incredibly strong magical powers created by a wizard called Clow Reed, but they could not be control due to their strong wilfullness to be free. In order to subdue the Clow Cards, Clow Reed sealed them away in the book Sakura found with Cerberus in charge of protecting them from being set free, but failed in his mission as he has been asleep almost for 30 years. Cerberus advises Sakura the Clow Cards need to be found and recaptured otherwise they will cause much trouble due to their strong magical powers. Realizing that Sakura possess magical powers of her own due to being able to open the book containing the Clow Cards, Cerberus makes Sakura become a Cardcaptor, making it her responsibility to recapture the Cards since she is responsible for releasing them. Sakura is against the idea of herself becoming a Cardcaptor, believing she isn't up for the task. However, Sakura and Cerberus are interrupted by a sudden gust of wind, discovering it to be the Fly Card in the form of a giant bird and go to capture it.

Sakura and Cerberus go to pursue the Fly Card, but find themselves unable to capture it it due to it's immense size and are being chased by the card itself. However, Sakura quickly thinks up a plan and manages to get onto the Fly Card's body, using her staff and the Windy Card to subdue it and successfully captures her first Clow Card. Sakura and Cerberus return home and at the same time, use the opportunity to use the Fly Card for Sakura to fly home on her staff.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card ArcEdit


Syaoran LiEdit

The most notable relationship in the series is between Sakura and Syaoran Li, largely due to the second half of the series being heavily devoted to its development.

Their first encounter was on Syaoran's first day in Tomoeda Elementary School. Before they were properly introduced, Sakura was baffled to find Syaoran glaring at her and giving her hateful glances. He later confronts her, where he demands that she surrender the Clow Cards to him. When she refuses to give them to him, Syaoran attempts to take them from her by force. Sakura's brother, Toya, intervenes before their fight could escalate. Following these events, Sakura and Syaoran's relationship was strained for quite a while and despite her many attempts to befriend him, he was cold and dismissive towards her. Syaoran often ridiculed Sakura as he believed she was unworthy of the Clow Cards, She, however refused to retaliate and was kind to him. Like many other characters in the story, Syaoran gravitated to her gentle nature and they eventually became friends. An important turn in their relationship occurs when the Earthy reveals itself in the manga chapter entitled "The Power of the Elements", where Sakura falls into a deep crevice created by the card. Running to save her, Syaoran yells out to her, calling her by her first name. [4] After being rescued by Cerberus, Sakura returns this by asking if she can start calling him "Syaoran-kun". This is paralleled in the anime where, in episode 57, Tomoyo, Syaoran, Eriol, Sakura take a visit to a teddy bear museum. (The journey through the museum is accompanied by the song Ki Ni Naru Aitsu or That Girl I Can't Ignore, sung by his voice actress, Kumai Motoko). This is followed by a scene in an elevator between Syaoran and Sakura where events similar to those centered around the Earth card occur. Syaoran screams out Sakura's name here when she falls into a hole. Sakura later gets herself to safety by changing the Float Card and then tells him she heard this, and asks if she can call him "Syaoran-kun" instead of the more neutral "Li-kun".

Throughout the series, Syaoran gradually becomes more committed to caring for Sakura romantically, most especially after Yue forces him to confront his feelings early on in the second story arc, but she remains completely oblivious of his feelings. Syaoran's blushes become more frequent, and there are some occasions where he would suddenly become clumsy when in her presence. Sakura will either keep an innocent smile on her face or look confused and worried at Syaoran whenever he trips and falls. It is not certain when Sakura's feelings for Syaoran progress into romantic, but it is hinted to been when he comforted her after Yukito rejected her.

When Sakura confesses her feelings to Yukito, only to have them turned down because Yukito is in love with Sakura's older brother, Toya, Syaoran is there to comfort her in the park afterward. It is a very emotional period in the series, but she is able to recover, thanks to Syaoran being there to help her get her emotions out. To give thanks, she spends a week making him a scarf. Similarly, in the manga, Sakura returns the favor by spending a week making him a yukata which she gives to him after he agrees to accompany her to a festival although he is concerned when she shows up to school, wearing bandages. Sakura is finally made aware of Syaoran's feelings when he personally confesses them near the end of the series, after the final battle with Eriol Hiiragizawa. The news comes as a complete shock to her, and it is ever present in her thoughts over the next few days. After talking to her friends about why she is upset and confused about her feelings, she recognizes that she may love Syaoran as more than a friend. She goes to his house to speak with him, only to discover that he is returning to Hong Kong. She is heartbroken and cries, saying to herself that she doesn't want him to leave. This leads her to conclude that Syaoran is her true "number one person," and she hurries home to make him a teddy bear before she confesses her newfound feelings as Syaoran suddenly leaves for Hong Kong (though only temporarily). He asks her to wait for his return and she promises because she loves him the most. Two years later, they reunite as a couple. The anime stretches out the suspense, with Sakura not yet answering Syaoran in the last episode of the series. Instead, her confession comes at the end of the second movie, after several failed attempts throughout the film.

The teddy bears (seen in the above picture) are named Sakura and Syaoran, respectively, referring to a fictional tradition where if two people make teddy bears for each other and the recipients name them after their donors, the two will be a couple forever. In the manga, Sakura and Syaoran name their bears after each other after she confesses her love to him. However this is slightly changed in the anime, where, Syaoran gives Sakura his bear (she asks to have it) in Episode 70, but Sakura never gives him one, having already given it to Yukito earlier in the series. In the second movie, four months after Syaoran's departure, Sakura expresses her wish to confess her feelings to him to Tomoyo. Unbeknownst to her, Syaoran returns to Japan with his cousin Meiling Li who was having secret phone calls with Tomoyo who helped plan their return. Tomoyo and Meiling organized outings for Sakura to tell Syaoran about how she feels but, rather amusingly, she gets constantly interrupted by Kero, Toya and the awakening of the Nothing Card. During the final battle with the latter, She traps Sakura between two gaps on a tower's staircase. Sakura manages to convince her of her wrongdoings with the help of the other 52 cards. As Sakura changes the card into a Sakura card, ready to lose her most precious feeling as the price for sealing it, she regrets not being able to tell Syaoran how she felt. However, the card chooses Syaoran instead, who arrives in the nick of time, as he had more magical energy left. Sakura, unable to reach Syaoran, could only watch as the Nothing took it's effect on Syaoran. However, the effects of the Nothing card was successfully negated by the Nameless card, turning it into the Hope card. Sakura confesses her love believing that Syaoran had forgotten his own . She begins to cry but Syaoran surprisingly replies he loves her too, meaning he had not lost his most important feeling. As the sun rises, the damage done by the Nothing card starts to fade away. However,Sakura is so overjoyed by the revelation, that she uses the Jump card to recklessly leap across the gap to reach Syaoran, despite his pleas to wait for the stairs to return. The film ends on a cliffhanger with Sakura halfway through the air, but a still image released with the film shows that she makes the leap, right into Syaoran's arms. The manga concludes the development of their relationship differently, as there is no movie for which to create a cliffhanger. Instead, after a major battle, as in the anime, Syaoran finds a quiet moment in Penguin Park to confess his love to Sakura. Sakura, again, is left in a mild state of shock as she tries to absorb the words, while Syaoran, content after revealing his feelings, tells her to be careful going back home and then leaves. The rest of the volume of the Cardcaptor Sakura is focused on Sakura trying to work out her feelings for Syaoran. Many people play a role in this.

Tomoyo Daidouji Edit

Tomoyo Daidouji is Sakura's best friend and her second cousin on their mothers' side. When she learns of Sakura's new role as a Cardcaptor, she insists that Sakura must wear "special outfits" and begins providing Sakura with the various costumes she wears during her captures, as well as accompanying her on missions to record the events with her video camera. Tomoyo also gives Syaoran advice for his feelings for Sakura and enjoys teasing him about it occasionally. Tomoyo also makes cameo appearances in Tsubasa:RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE.

Yukito TsukishiroEdit

Sakura maintains a crush on Yukito Tsukishiro for most of the manga and anime, but when she finally confesses to Yukito, she is gently rejected and she realizes that she loved him because of his resemblance to her father and his power of the moon.

Touya KinomotoEdit

Sakura's elder brother. Half the time, they tend to argue like any siblings would, but get along with each other.


As put in the first Chapter of the manga-

  • Her blood type is A
  • Favorite colors are pink and white
  • Favorite flowers are cherry blossoms (known as 'sakura', hence her name)
  • Favorite classes are Music and PE
  • Least favorite class is Math
  • School Club: Cheerleading
  • Favorite Foods: Rice Omelet and Noodles
  • Least Favorite Foods: Konnyaku
  • Since rice omelets and noodles are her favourite foods, they are notably also Touya's specialty dish
  • In Tsubasa:RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, an adult form of Princess Sakura is seen towards the end of the series. Since she is based on Sakura Kinomoto herself, it can be assumed Sakura would have a similar appearance as an adult.
