Things are heating up in the Cardcaptor anime and not just because Sakura is fighting a fire based card in this episode. So many plot points seem on the edge of being revealed and everything seems read to come together.
Sakura’s school friends are starting to question the disappearing cake decorations, Kaito is being even more mysterious and yet seemingly slightly sinister, Toya is confronting Yue, and Syaoran is definitely hiding something not so great from Sakura; yep it looks like we’re getting close to a season ending for Cardcaptor Sakura. And if previous seasons are anything to go by I doubt we’ll be disappointed by the end result.
If anything, the biggest negative of this new series has been that it hasn’t really done anything new. A lot of the events have parallels in the previous stories and while visually this has had a fantastic upgrade fro 1990’s Sakura, from a plot point of view it hasn’t done much and the main cast (Sakura, Syaoran, etc) have already done their growing up and overcome a lot of their issues. What that means is there’s been limited character development as they haven’t had the steep learning curves they faced early on.
Still, it is very hard to watch Syaoran and Sakura team up to take down a giant fire bird and not be impressed. And any scene with Toya and Yuki/Yue is pretty awesome. As such, episode 18 was great to watch even if I’m still wondering if this returning series was actually necessary.
