The Change card
Oh boy, it’s a body-switch episode; between Syaoran and Kero at that! But that’s not the only reason why this episode is so amusing, half of it is because of Kumai Motoko and Hisakawa Aya, the voice actresses for Syaoran and Kero respectively.
Often when voice actresses are put into the position of voicing a body switch – in which the characters don’t magically switch voices as well – it’s a great way of truly gauging their skills as voice actresses. And I think Kumai-san and Hisakawa-san did a fantastic job on both ends. It was amusing seeing “Syaoran” speak in Kansai-ben and likewise for Kero speaking in such a serious tone. Overall, Cardcaptor Sakura really had such a great voice cast and I’d love for all of them to reprise their roles in a new CCS-related adventure someday…

This was an excellent episode, and definitely one of my top picks from the first season. Mainly because it’s one of the more outlandish CCS episodes out there – and it helps that there are two Clow Cards in this episode as opposed to the previous episodes where there were only one each.
Note: This episode amusingly starts with a repeat of Sakura’s first episode monologue about Touya and how she wished she would grew big and stepped on the big meanie.

Oh my god, it’s the precursor to Eifie.
Here’s an episode from the first season that I really like and find really memorable. A lot of fans born in the west seem to easily recall The Dash episode from the Cardcaptors dub…. and to my shame, so do I.
And I sometimes want to kill myself for it. I often forget that, yes, there was once a time where I actually enjoyed that piece of trash dub and this episode was what got me into it (and then dropped it and went onto the Cardcaptor Sakura manga translated by Tokyopop + the subbed anime).

CCS? Praise the sun!
Here’s another fun episode to sit through before we fully enter the second season – “Sakura’s Sweeeeet Cooking“. Our little heroine learns how to bake a delicious cake in home econ class! Naturally, she’s pumped. Of course, since this is Cardcaptor Sakura, magical hindrances are abound.

And we return…!
To FoodFlinging Sakura™
When I first watched this, it was during that time in life where you’d rely on your mother to do the cooking for you. Coming back to it as a young adult and cooking for myself, I can definitely say that…
…I really empathize with Sakura’s fear of sizzling oil while frying foods for the first time. It’s not fun.

I return from a marathon of Cardcaptor Sakura on Blu-ray! I felt I should take a short break and continue with these posts since, well, I use my PS3’s Blu-ray player to watch BD anime, and after I started to switch to Disc 6, I noticed that the system was really – and I mean really – hot, so… yeah, I should probably cool it down with the CCS before I can never play Atelier Rorona ever again.
tl;dr I might wreck my PS3 because I love Cardcaptor Sakura way too much.

So yesterday, my precious Blu-ray set finally came in and I was filled with joy as I unboxed the package. There were a few complications, such as me not getting it early in the morning because they sent my baby to the wrong home (USPS *shakes fists*), but overall I’m happy that I finally have it after months of waiting.
