Can we just say how cute the splash page is with their hands entangled like that? Is this really a CLAMP series? LOL
That wollen vest Yukito is wearing is so Yukito, I was just flipping the other day the original CCS manga and I saw Yukito wearing one of these and it made me wonder that it’s been a while since CLAMP drew something like that. I think Fye was the last character that worn one.
I love how Kero is like “enough with this shit, show up, Yue!!” and Yukito is like “WTF?” xD
So everything happened exactly like the dream Sakura saw — the cards have all “cleared”. She brought them straight to Yue but apparently neither him or Kero know what this is all about. This means that Clow never told them anything about this happening (Clow didn’t explain everything? You don’t say!).
Can we assume that Yukito’s house will now become a sort of headquarters to discuss magic matters? Seems appropriate to me.
It seems like Yue can no longer feel magic coming out of the cards. He asks Sakura to check is the key is working and it still is. Also Sakura didn’t lose any of her powers despite of what happened.
It’s so cute to see Yue being kind towards Sakura ❤
Then, Sakura tells Tomoyo and Syaoran about what happened to the cards and while Tomoyo seems alarmed, Syaoran answers with a mere “…I don’t know what it is” which is at least suspicious to me. The way the frames are arranged and his concerned expression later makes me think that he is lying about it — he probably has a good reason for lying if that’s really the case, of course. I just think that if he didn’t know anything about it, he would have felt alarmed like Tomoyo (or more).
So the mystery regarding the class assignments is finally cleared: Sakura is with Tomoyo and Chiharu while Syaoran is with Naoko and Yamazaki, who look slightly older/taller =) Isn’t it cute Syaoran still believing in Yamazaki’s lies? xD
In the meantime, Sakura also wrote Eriol about what happened but he hasn’t wrote back to Sakura yet — suspicious as well, otherwise CLAMP wouldn’t have brought this up. Did you notice how Sakura’s bed changed? I guess CLAMP want to show that Sakura is not a little girl anymore.
Sakura then has the same dream again in which the mysterious figure appears. The dream is more recurring than I expected, but then again, Sakura often had recurring premonitory dreams, right?
And then, the unexpected happens: A NEW KEY! O_O
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT? (I know, probably a million clever fanfic writers out there)
At first I thought the star key had changed, and I’m pretty sure that many readers thought that too, but it looks like it’s a brand new key. That would make sense since at some point Sakura will give away her star wand to TRC!Sakura.
The 6-point star looks like the one from the costume that the mysterious figure is wearing (and also the one from Sakura’s sailor outfit from Nakayoshi July 2016 cover?), which makes me think even more that the mysterious figure is Sakura herself.
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT STRANGE SNAKEY THING FLYING AROUND TOMOEDA? O_O
At first I thought it was a Dragon of Earth/Heaven but then I was like “no, wait”.
34 pages for this chapter. 73 pages so far for volume 1. The slight decrease in page number was expected. Next chapter will be next month, in the next issue of Nakayoshi magazine, hopefully with a new color page each month (god bless shoujo manga!).
