Everyone is getting a color page and now it’s Tomoyo’s turn. I like the floating window concept. That’s also because Tomoyo plays an important role in this chapter.
After 3 basically plot-based chapters, we now have a very light chapter, very Card Captor Sakura-like with Tomoyo, Sakura and Kero baking a cheesecake.
I didn’t expect to see Eriol’s side so soon. He says it’s still not the right time to contact Sakura… we just hope that he doesn’t do that only after she secures all of the new cards xD So sweet of Nakuru of wanting to go and help Sakura. That’s a side of her we’re not used to see! CLAMP cannot keep this gang from doing nothing and just watch (or can they?) so I wonder what their role is gonna be.
So a new card appears, this time is Sakura’s own bedroom — Siege. Like Gale, I actually had to look up the meaning of that word. Surely there’s a reason for using such uncommon words for this new card?
Again Sakura felt no aura coming from the card, but she did sense something just before the card showed itself. The card reminded immediately of the kekkais in X.
A couple of readers suggested that this card would be the counterpart of The Maze or The Shield. That is, if these cards are really counterparts of the Clow/Sakura cards. I love this card’s design.
Notice how again, when Sakura secures the card, the card’s form appears within a shard of glass — at least I think it’s glass — just like Sakura’s dream in Chapter 1. I wonder what’s the meaning behind this.
I have to say, I thought this chapter was drawn beautifully! I wasn’t too keen on Chapter 3 but Chapter 4 made up for it. It looks very CCS, I hope it stays that way.
Another set of 35 pages this time (there is one page missing from the Chinese scans). 142 pages so far for volume 1. Next chapter will be next month and it shall be the last chapter from volume 1 (out on Dec. 2). No breaks so far!
