Cardcaptors 2: Unexpected Find, An

The Cardcaptors series we are receiving is different from the version broadcast in the US. We are getting all of the episodes, in the correct order (their version is rearranged, and many episodes are missing). However, in the process of dubbing, a lot of scenes were chopped out - basically anything the studio thought might be questionable, such as depicting a ten-year-old girl having a crush on a fourteen-year-old boy (that never happens, after all). So what we are getting is less censored than the US version of Cardcaptors, but it is still censored when compared to the original Japanese version (called Cardcaptor Sakura). The Japanese version is available in Region 1, but only in subtitled form.
