Whoa, they are all grown up.
It's only one year later.
It's finally here. I've been enjoying the manga, but I really feel like Cardcaptor Sakura is at its best in animated form. It's a little weird how much it manages to look like the original series while also looking like a modern production.>>23770
Three years, actually. It rather bugs me that it uses a contemporary setting when it's such a close sequel to a series from the Nineties.>>23767
I'm not surprised or anything, but it's kind of too bad that this is a straight adaptation of the Clear Card manga instead of a sequel to the classic anime.
In conclusion, Tomoyo still best girl.
The original series ended in the spring before she entered the sixth grade. Since this one starts when she's just entering the seventh grade, that makes it one year later. It is three years after the beginning of the original series, however.>instead of a sequel to the classic anime
The only thing that's really different is that the second movie never happened, but even then, Sakura and Syaoran's relationship ended up in essentially the same place; she just confessed to him at the bus station instead of the amusement park.
And in the scene where she lays out all the clear cards on the table, there are actually far too many, but I'm guessing that means they're including the anime-original cards in this series as well.>it manages to look like the original series while also looking like a modern production
I love that about it; how it keeps the aesthetics of the original yet includes contemporary animation tropes. Like they waited 17 years for digital animation to get caught up to where their cel animation was at the end of the century. I think they've handled it beautifully.
I have the biggest smile on my face right now because of this.
I honestly thought I'd never live to see the day where I could watch Cardcaptor while it was airing. But here we are.

Yeah, that makes sense. My bad.
It's like seeing an old friend again. Sailor Moon Crystal made me feel the same way, but ultimately disappointed me.>>23775>they waited 17 years for digital animation to get caught up to where their cel animation was at the end of the century
It looked kind of uncanny to me at first, but it grew on me pretty fast.
Do you reckon we'll have a bunch of new seasons of the thing now?

I mean, it could honestly be 'fully waterproof' if not for the fact that her shoulders are exposed. Unless it's just flesh-colored rubber.
You gotta hand it to the outfit designers, even when they're making a waterproof outfit, they make sure to make it fashionable.
You can see that the shoulders are exposed; look at her right sleeve in that image. There's a lot more wrong than that, though:
- Hood doesn't come all the way over the front of the head, which would leave hair exposed to get wet and drip onto the face
- Hood's wide-open, baggy cheeks would collect water and/or funnel it towards the neck
- Shoulder cutouts would allow water infiltration to arms and torso
- Short yet wide skirt would leave underclothes all but unprotected from splashing
- Completely exposed and unprotected kneehighs would get soaked and wick that moisture down towards the feet
- Relatively low-cut yet widely flared boots would constantly collect water
All in all, a terribly ineffective design for jumping around in the rain. I didn't mind in the episode, because it was pretty cute, but I couldn't believe they had the nerve to describe it as "fully waterproof" afterwards.
Image unrelated by the way, I just like Chiharu.
I mean it's probably, in a literal sense, completely waterproof. As in, once the water gets in, it'll be sloshing around on you instead of draining away.
Do I need to watch the previous series to watch this one? I dropped the original
It's a direct sequel so yeah, you do
Why'd you drop the original?
I just didn't have time or the motivation to watch like all 70 episodes or however much it was
I still have it downloaded though I think
If you want to watch Clear Card as it's airing, but don't want to rush through marathoning the original anime, you could just read the manga; you won't miss out on anything plot-relevant.
However, I would recommend finishing the anime at some point, especially if the only reason you dropped it was a lack of time. Most of the original content is pretty good.
Yeah it's my intention to finish it sometime, I just don't know when

Wow I sure hope that transfer student doesn't end up being a magician in disguise or something haha
They did a seriously good job of matching the old style while still making it look modern
I actually really like Meiling. I'll never forget the episode of the original series where Shaoran tells her he's in love with Sakura. She goes to Tomoyo's house and collapses, weeping, into Tomoyo's arms. Neither of them speaks.
I hated her at the beginning of the series, but she grew on me. I really like when a story makes me change my opinion of a character.
Japanese people are honestly hilariously shit at English
The weird thing isn't so much that they suck but that they suck but they insist on using it anyway
Though I guess the same goes for the random Latin or Chinese or Persian or whatever you sometimes see in games.

It's a charm point and they know it.
What the hell is this, VRChat or whatever?
