Madhouse crushing it! There’s definitely a lot of love put into to this especially when you get very same staff from the original series. Man I would have to say the animation is almost on par with Ancient Magus Bride.

One thing I am curious about is the cards themselves. what were they lke before they got cleared?

Like were they like tarot cards? Were they her spells?


Watch the original series (just the first few episodes will be fine even) or read the manga. It's hard to explain everything from just new series.

It's a really good show and worth the time

really really really good.

Really good.

If you haven't watched the orgainal go watch it. A least the first few eps so you know a bit about what going on.

oh my gosh this one is just as adorable as the first. got my viewing over on Hulu, so for the fans out there, you're going to enjoy it I'm sure, well if you're a fan of the old one and/or cute stuff. this go around I found they had more play with attention to detail. it still holds the traditional flare to it, however the details to the cherry blossoms and blooms in the first episode was a great way to open one's eye to viewing such a series. they didn't take anything from the series and I rather liked the recap they did right before the series began, some creators drop you off and hope you can swim or sink. and the plushies, oh my gosh, I adored the attention, and I'm certain they will have new characters, but at least all the old ones have returned.

Yeah. I'm not going to go back and watch the old stuff any time soon. I'll just suffer with not knowing... or I'll just read the wiki.

*~ So much love!! ~*

They seamlessly tied it to the old series, it feels exactly the same, but with new adventures. And this time, I can catch and discuss the episodes as they come out, too!!

Some of the best parts, IMO:

It feels surreal (and awesome) to be witnessing new adventures with Sakura and crew. It's been ages since I've last seen the original, but I'm getting fantastic vibes from this episode. I did feel quite rusty. When the characters were being re-introduced, I had many "A-Ha!" moments. Particularly, I forgot how beautiful Yue was in terms of appearance and voice. Oddly enough, my most vivid memory of the original series was Kero-chan with a stack of pancakes:

Judging from their height, who was level with Sakura, the hooded figure might be someone in Sakura's school (or at least someone in the form of a middle school student). Looking forward to see where this is going!

Darn it, foiled by licensing issues once again. ;-; Wish I could have watched it.

I barely remember anything from watching the english dubs broadcast on Fox as a kid, but this is super adorable.

I'd like to explain it to you, but I might have to write an essay just to cover everything relevant. Mainly because, I do believe, that between the last series and this series, this version of Sakura (meaning Cardcaptor Sakura as opposed to Tsubasa Chronicles) does make a cameo in either xxxHolic or Tsubasa Chronicles, I don't remember which, and those stories are very closely intertwined so it almost doesn't matter which. To put it another way, ever since xxxHolic and Tsubasa Chronicles... every Clamp series is connected. Even Blood C. Watanuki, the main character of xxxHolic is now like a super wizard that can pretty much appear in any Clamp series, and yes there is only one version of him as opposed to every other character which there exist multiple versions of, theoretically.

Kinda curious how they plan to adapt this with 22+ episodes though. The current manga doesn't have enough material to stretch the story that far so I am expecting original content coming soon.



Could be the same way the original Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon handled it, though I hope not.

I think I should go dig up the 3rd season of the original Sakura series and watch it again, since apparently I've forgotten some of the plot...

Think it was Tsubasa.
A copy of her first wand shows up in xxxHolic. Watanuki freaks out about it. XD

It's all good. Cay kind of explained things to me a bit. I'll pick up more as I watch I suppose.

I wonder if Rika (The friend who went to a different school) is still in that "relationship" with her elementary school teacher.

So previously I left a link showing my full review and then a few days later I left a quick review here as well (although looking at the ending credits again turns out I was wrong about the selfie thing (Thankfully) so I do apologize for that and it doesn't seem like I could edit previous posts go figured ^^; )

So after I've watched the episode a second time I gave a lot of though in this in terms of the comparisons between the anime and manga and other things I've noticed. So I'll leave the link at the bottom and you could check out on my additional thoughts among other stuff but be warned I went full fan boy on this ^^; Still, hope you like it :)
