Unlike the previous two episodes, this episode was pretty much straight out from the manga — except with a few extended scenes and adaptations.
I like that they changed Nadeshiko’s portrait. They didn’t do it from Episode 1 to Episode 2. I’m always paying attention on it.
I don’t think they nail Touya’s design. He doesn’t look handsome enough in comparison to CLAMP’s art. It’s not terrible but it’s far from being on point, like Sakura. Thankfully Sakura is the main character, haha.
I was afraid Akiho would have an annoying voice (I wonder why) but her seiyuu doesn’t sound annoying at all. I had a sense of what her voice sounded like from looking at some of her work when her name was first announced. I think she’s perfect for Akiho.
Yes, Akiho, I share the same feelings of how everyone is SO kind on this manga/anime. It’s surreal ♡
It’s nice seeing more of the school grounds, by the way. We don’t get to see much of it in the manga — CLAMP aren’t really known for their amazing backgrounds.
Again the battle scene with ACTION was greatly animated. The action scenes are looking really great, with Sakura being very badass and all. But this time though, unlike the previous battle scenes, this one was pretty faithful to the manga.
I loved the bit with Touya sneezing wearing the Ushagi costume. And it looks like he’s standing in front of a drugstore but alas, it’s not the Green Drugstore (a competitor, perhaps?). Be more specific next time, Ohkawa.
We’re up to episode 4 and the animation looks consistent enough. Surely the faraway shots don’t look as great as the amazing closeups, but it’s still completely tolerable as far as faraway shots go. And to think that they might just do a few touch ups for the DVD & Blu-Ray release… Thank you MADHOUSE ♡
We’re done with volume 2. The only thing left out was the omake with Kero and Suppi. I wonder if they will ever animate that…
Next episode seems to be a complete original one based on the hanami story that wasn’t show in the manga. So in a way, this will be like an extended version of the manga, which is great.
