Cardcaptor Sakura 【HD Rewatch】19

That's actually a pretty good drawing

This was my least favorite episode (which isn’t say­ing much, since I love and enjoy all the Card­cap­tor Saku­ra episodes in one way or anoth­er). Basi­cal­ly, Saku­ra gets into a sit­u­a­tion that most of us got into when we were in ear­ly ele­men­tary school — pro­cras­ti­nat­ing the hell out of our sum­mer home­work and end­ing up using the very last days of the break cram­ming it all in.

;_; Some­times we just bring it upon ourselves.

Quid pro quo

Of course, Saku­ra gets some help com­plet­ing her home­work. In Touya’s case, the price was five chores. What, you think he’d do it for free?

With all of that out of the way, the only home­work left was the dread­ed book report. Oh man, not only does re-watch­ing this series bring back nos­tal­gia for CCS itself, but it also brings back nos­tal­gia from my child­hood in gen­er­al. If there was any­thing I pro­cras­ti­nat­ed on, it was def­i­nite­ly book reports. While I loved read­ing, I did­n’t like writ­ing about it.

It’s real­ly iron­ic, see­ing as I even­tu­al­ly cre­at­ed an ani­me blog and have gained a deep inter­est in writ­ing about what I read/watch over the years. Per­haps it was because I was forced to read things that did­n’t inter­est me, but I digress. The sim­ple book about pig­gies that both Syao­ran and Saku­ra want­ed to use for their book reports gets pos­sessed by The Move, and eludes their grasps in var­i­ous ways through­out the episode.

Kanji is killer, but you have it easy, China boy

A cer­tain char­ac­ter detail is revealed about Syao­ran. That is, he can’t read Japan­ese all that well because kan­ji usage dif­fers between Japan­ese and Chi­nese. As a per­son who is study­ing the Japan­ese lan­guage, I’d say Syao­ran has it well, since learn­ing kan­ji is at least sim­pler if you already know Tra­di­tion­al Chi­nese. And since he already speaks Japan­ese flu­ent­ly, it should­n’t be that hard to learn every­thing else.

SHIPPING SCENARIO: SYAORAN HELPS SAKURA WITH HER MATH HOMEWORK AND SAKURA HELPS SYAORAN WITH JAPANESE. 😀

Huzzah!

In the end, Saku­ra man­ages to cap­ture The Move using her mag­i­cal senses…

Glorious

Glo­ri­ous

…but not with­out get­ting wet first. With Syaoran.

Looks good on you

And not only does she get wet with Syao­ran, she ends up wear­ing his garments.

Gar­ments that were a present from Me-… *bang­ing sound*

CAT FIGHT!

What’s this about get­ting wet with Syao­ran and wear­ing his clothes that *I* gave him?!

THE FUN BEGINS NOWGUYS.

We need more Leave it to Kero-chan

Poor Kero-chan. This episode marks the first visu­al retool of the seg­ment that fore­shad­ows its even­tu­al can­cel­la­tion in the sec­ond season.

Until it makes a gigan­tic come­back as a real­ly amus­ing short cou­pled with the sec­ond film. But that’s for anoth­er time!
