Cardcaptor Sakura 【HD Rewatch】 34

Riddle Me This

Riddle Me This

Here we are: it’s the second-to-last episode of the first season until we get to DO-DO-DO-DREAMING (and the movie)!

This is also the first episode where no Clow Cards are captured at all. In fact, the “antagonist” in this episode was… the full moon (no, not that moon). In Cardcaptor Sakura, magic (at least when it comes to Clow Reed’s magic) draws power from the sun and the moon. The full moon clearly has an effect on Sakura, once again triggering precognitive visions of what appears to be the Final Judgment (the viison with the silhouette of a person who is obviously Ms. Mizuki) and also puts her in a daze.

[SPOILER]
While there was a red herring in the previous episode, this episode also gives us a crucial hint of who Yue actually is…

i luv em all

CCS Month ended, now I declare it CCS *year*.

UPDATE

Sorry for the brief hiatus. With the remains of summer already coming to a close (I return to college AND work @ college in a week) – I’ve been doing all the leisurely things I can possibly do in this hot weather. I’ve already plowed through entire CCS Blu-ray set a long time ago and with the English release of Tales of Xillia 2, I’ve been doing a Tales marathon as well (it doubles as family time with my little sister, since these JRPGs are multiplayer!) as well as gnawing at my VB backlog.

It’s gonna be weird crawling out of the rock I’ve been under these past several weeks. Returning to civilization, what the hell is that? Mind you, I’m still going to write reviews about the anime I haven’t gotten around to reviewing yet that I promised to review ages ago.

END UPDATE

Without further ado, time to continue this Cardcaptor Sakura project! Snowy weather hits Tomoeda and our beloved heroine + Tomoyo and their token Chinese friends go on a school trip to learn how to ice skate.
