Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 4: Was Anyone Surprised By That Ending?

Review:

Well, at least we know now why Syaoran is being all avoidy (though not any details, just that he’s doing that usual lie to the girl in order to protect her thing anime the males in magical girl shows tend to do even though it usually fails miserably – see Darien season two of Sailor Moon for further evidence). However, that the end of the episode, and I don’t think it caught anyone by surprise but was more a matter of wondering when they will tell us exactly what is going on.

Anyway, the episode has Sakura going about her usual day including her usual fight with her older brother before she meets a transfer student and the flower effects people go a bit crazy (for most of the episode).

Yes, they are having a lot of fun this episode with floral filled scenes. New girl seems nice and totally not suspicious which probably means she is up to something (but maybe she’s just the red-herring to distract us from whatever Syaoran is up to – though given Sakura pointed out the similarities in their names I’m guessing there’s something going on).

Anyway, we get another dramatic card capture moment and that about wraps it up for the episode. Much like last week, this was quite fun and moving along at a reasonable pace, even if it was a little predictable. I was surprised by the card itself being ‘action’ given I expected it to be ‘wood’ but I’m also really surprised by how small scale Sakura was being when she was wondering what to use it for. Anyway, another week, another card captured and more cute costumes for Sakura.

  1. Yeah, I think predictability is kind of a staple in Cardcaptors that’s probably never going to change. I think the strength comes from her learning to use the cards in new situations and her relationships with others. I don’t think I remember a major moment in the last series that was surprising…feel free to correct me if you think of anything though. I just want to know whats going on with Touya honestly.

    1. I know, I’d love to know what Toya has planned as clearly he’s up to something. Still, the show isn’t really about surprising us but more about seeing the characters grow and their relationships so maybe giving us a million clues leading up to any revelation ins’t really an issue because then we can focus on the characters and what they are doing.
