Another color spread! Two color spreads in a row. CLAMP are on fire with this. We get to see Akiho’s hair color (so fast) and it is true what my friend Sakura84 told me: they look like 6 years old.
Love Tomoyo here for being the perfect partner in crime as she always was. Everyone was missing some Sakura/Tomoyo interaction and CLAMP gave us that in this chapter.
The costume Tomoyo made this time reminded me of GATE 7 for obvious reasons.
Let’s point out that once again nobody was around when Sakura was securing the card — and she points that out again, which make things more suspicious.
Kudos to Sakura to figuring out all by herself again on how to secure this card, although I didn’t really understand what was happening when she used SIEGE.
So, ACTION… I can’t think of a Clow Card counterpart. Maybe The Move, but that was an anime-only card. I can’t think of a manga Clow Card counterpart.
Also worth mentioning how Yue can’t feel any powers coming out of the clear cards, which could mean that not feeling any power coming out of something doesn’t necessarily mean that that something is powerless. It could also mean that that something has foreign powers.
Love the card’s design with the gears. Very X-y, very CLAMP-y =)
Closing this chapter is the much anticipated scene where Sakura offers to make obentou for Syaoran. This is something that fans were speculating for a long time and it’s finally here. Just when we think there isn’t enough Sakura/Syaoran interaction, Ohkawa gives us something to calm us all down xD
Still can’t believe how Eriol is managing to keep that timezone bullshit xD
In the last scene, we see now five glowing spheres floating on top of Syaoran’s board — one for each card.
I am sorry I am not able to make a bigger review this time, I am really short on time right now.
37 pages for the chapter. 141 pages for volume 2 so far — I give two more chapters to close this volume.
