Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Series Review: Characters We Love, Magic That Thrills, And A Plot Totally Unfinished

As a child and teen of the 90's I grew up with Cardcaptor in my life, and even with the terrible English dub and the butchered theme song this anime was close to my heart. How does the reboot/sequel of 2018 match up to nostalgia's fierce hold? Review: Nostalgia can be a dangerous thing sometimes. … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Series Review: Characters We Love, Magic That Thrills, And A Plot Totally Unfinished

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 22: It’s a Final Episode, Let’s Spend Half Of It At School

Quite literally there is nothing final about this final episode. Other than the reveal that the cloaked figure is in fact, well the person we all knew it was, nothing is revealed and nothing is actually finalised. And yet, that is the end of this season with no announcement for when a follow up might … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 22: It’s a Final Episode, Let’s Spend Half Of It At School

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 21: Only One Episode Left

With a 22 episode count (according to MAL), this is the second last episode. And while it certainly seems things have gotten climactic, there seems to be far too much left for this to all fit into one more episode. The villain has been established, and help from Eriol firmly cut off. We've done the … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 21: Only One Episode Left

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 20: Getting Closer

While Sakura goes to meet someone from the past, the rest of the gang get together to figure out what is going on in the present. Things are looking grim (or exciting depending on your perspective). This week Sakura is about to go on a date with Syaoran when a phone call gives her an … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 20: Getting Closer

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 19: Down Time With Story Time

After things really heated up last week, this week brings us a more relaxed episode of our favourite card-capturing heroine as she goes to read to children. You could almost forget about the magic in this episode except for one discussion right at the end. While this episode brings some cute moments between Sakura and … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 19: Down Time With Story Time

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 18: Things Are Getting Hot

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 … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 18: Things Are Getting Hot

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 17: The Convenience of the Sleep Card

While Sakura always had a few favourite cards that she relied upon, this second part of Clear Card seems to be fairly heavy handed with the sleep card. How many times can classmates doze off before they start asking questions even in anime land? While the sleep card is probably a better option than pretending … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 17: The Convenience of the Sleep Card

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 16: Farewell Meilin

We knew we'd be saying goodbye to her given she isn't in the source material for this anime but I'm going to miss Meilin? How about you? The cliffhanger from last week ended up being resolved pretty quickly and mostly unspectacularly (though I have to wonder how that card represents 'swing') and then the girls … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 16: Farewell Meilin

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 15: Memories – Definitely A Lethal Blow

The girls reminisce about old times before the anime ends on a cliff-hanger. How cute were Syaoran and Sakura in the film? What happens when you get the girls together on their day off? Well, if you leave Tomoyo in charge of the entertainment, you get to watch Sakura perform in the play and learn … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 15: Memories – Definitely A Lethal Blow

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 14: He’s So Cool

There was probably other stuff going in this anime this week, but I was pretty much focused on Syaoran as they finally gave him an episode to shine in. What did you think? Alright, so this week we continue with Meilin's visit and Sakura continues to see animal ears occasionally pop out of her head. … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 14: He’s So Cool
