It was about time we had one of those simple Kero/Suppi illustrations. At least we got Sakura on the magazine cover looking cute enough to compensate ^^”
So it was a card, after all! For once, I was right xD
Yue and Kero are pretty much helpless given that they can’t sense anything from the labyrinth, and they can’t help finding the exit either. Except Sakura can. Her eyes sparkle and suddenly she understands everything while being in a sort of a trance — dully noted by Yue, by the way.
Sakura secures the card safely and easily (what, no battle?) and the card is called, of course, LABYRINTH.
Then again, for the second time, Sakura felt that something was “off/not-right”.
Syaoran then shows up and Sakura is about to invite him for dinner but oh noes, Yuna interrupts! (bad timing!) He introduces himself and Syaoran is looking all suspicious after he hears Yuna’s full name.
He quickly decides he needs to go back home and call Eriol, thus refusing Sakura’s offer for dinner. Syaoran is such a good boy. Saving Sakura’s life > dinner with Sakura.
Back at Syaoran’s place, we get to see a really interesting talk between him and Eriol about a Magician Society from the United Kingdom, in which the highest magician gets a “D” title attached to their name — which means Yuna could be the highest Magician from such Society.
It is the first time we are introduced to this super secretive Magician Society (Syaoran’s family didn’t even tell him about it). The possibilities are very exciting. Needless to say that the odds that Fye is part of that Society are high. Didn’t we all think Yuna was a mix of Fye and Seishirou when we first saw him? haha
But it’s probably not the same Fye from Tsubasa, since I’m pretty sure that the “D” stood for something else in Tsubasa (can’t remember what). But we could soon be seeing Fye from this world.
I’m very curious to learn more about this Society — like, who are the other members?
Being in England
doing nothing, I really hope Eriol does some research about it and let Syaoran know.
So apparently Yuna has powers that Sakura can’t sense… because his powers are supposedly drawn from the Moon. I think that’s strange considering we are to assume that Sakura is really really powerful. Exactly how powerful she is if she can’t sense Yuna’s power? Unless he is currently more powerful than her (enough to conceal his powers?) and she is on the road to become the world’s greatest magician but she’s not there yet? I’m a little confused.
And of coooooourse Yuna didn’t rent Clow’s former house just by chance — did anyone ever think that? I guess only the sweet naïve readers of Nakayoshi.
We’ve got a short chapter this time: 26 pages (so short!) — 55 pages for volume 4 so far. Before wrapping up, I’d just like to add that this chapter was beautifully drawn. Short, but beautiful.
Next chapter will be out next month!
