- The clip ending of Episode 70, the title song in the background is what makes the impact.
- The manga ending, of course!.
- The ending of the Cardcaptor Sakura second movie. Awwwwwww!
- Spoiler-riddled elaboration: Sakura finally corners the card and tries to change it, resigned to the fact that this will take away her feelings for Syaoran, even though she hasn't told him how she feels yet. As soon as she finishes the spell, the card chooses Syaoran to loose his feelings (he happens to make it in time for a Heroic Sacrifice). He tells her it'll be alright, that he'll fall in love with her again. The card makes its move, and Sakura is left crying because Syaoran's feelings are gone. The new card, The Hope, tells her not to cry, that everything is okay. She dries her tears and tells Syaoran that she loves him. Its totally heartbreaking, until Syoaran replies that he loves her, too. The card didn't take away his feelings after all! And then, the sun comes up and everything starts returning to normal. The cherry on top is when Sakura leaps across the hole in the floor and into Syaoran's arms shouting "I love you!" Oh yeah, just to make this even better is Ashita e no Melody playing.
- As sweet as it was, this troper personally thought ending the anime adaption on that literal cliffhanger (as well as failing to detail Syaoran pemanently moving to Tomeda so as to prevent a Long-Distance Relationship) tainted it into more a Bittersweet Ending.
- The cliffhanger of the The Sealed Card ending is averted with special mention by a special poster released along with the film, showing Sakura making the leap successfully right into Syaoran's arms in one most heartwarming moment in the whole series. And what high resolution!. To be fair, it required researching the entire internet (my fellow tropers, save yourself months of trouble, the light bulb has already been invented), but was well worth it.
- And now there is even a video for it.
- The ending of episode 22 of the anime. Sakura spent most of the episode trying to help out with chores so that her dad could finish her research paper, but upon capturing the card of the week, she accidentally breaks his computer, resulting in all that work being lost. And yet her dad is not angry, but takes her home to cheer her up. The next day, he even decides to stay home to work rather than go to his university office and reaffirms that with Sakura's help, they can finish the paper together. Awwwww...What a nice guy!
- Nearly the entirety of Episode 67, after being comforted by Syaoran after being rejected by Yukito, Sakura is insistant on showing her thanks in some manner, devoting several sleepless nights to making him a scarf. In particular her shyly presenting him his gift (with Syaoran's expected reaction) is exceptionally touching. While most Sakura*Syaoran episodes were placed from Syaoran's perspective and his overwhelming infatuation with her, this takes place largely from Sakura's point of view, showing how greatly her opinion and relationship with Syaoran has changed, from an intimidating arrogant rival to a gentle close friend who's very presence tends to bring her happiness.
- That made me cry, damnit. In a good way, of course.
- The beginning of Volume 10 of the manga, right after the power transfer. Yue hears Sakura crying; she blames herself for not realizing that Yukito/Yue was disappearing and for not being powerful enough to support him. Yue, who had originally told her she was too weak to be the master of the Clow Cards, kneels down to comfort her and tell her that it's only natural and not her fault that she's not as strong as Clow was.
- Any time Yue shows his softer side, really. He seems cold and haughty, but it's all a defense mechanism so that he doesn't have to be hurt again, as he and Clow Reed had been intimate. So when he's willing to show real kindness, it shows just how much he's come to care for Sakura.
- Touya sacrificing his powers to save Yukito. Awww!!!
- Nadeshiko's spirit relieving Sakura's high fever, along with Touya getting to talk with her again.
- Essentially ANY moment between Sakura and Syaoran in later episodes as the latter becomes more and more infatuated with the former. Granted they often act as a severe Yank the Dog's Chain as he fails to reveal his feelings for her, but he at least succeeds in endearing himself to Sakura a little more and gaining a stronger bond each time.
- In episode 59, Tomoyo goes missing and Sakura panics. Syaoran, in his own gruff way, tells her she's stronger than she thinks and that they will find Tomoyo, safe and sound. They do, and Sakura runs to her and gives her a big hug, asking if she was scared. Tomoyo's response? "No, because I knew for sure you would find me." Not only is this a good episode for Sakura and Syaoran, but for her and Tomoyo. Sakura truly does love her friend, and Tomoyo trusts her so wholly.
- Tomoyo telling Sakura that she doesn't need to confess her love to her special person, because that person's happiness is more important and all she wants is to help them obtain it. With so many cases of unrequited love being full of angst or entitlement, Tomoyo's was such a breath of fresh air in how pure and selfless her feelings are. She doesn't want to get her girl for herself, but for her girl to be happy no matter what.
- Aw, hell, the whole series!
