Episode 7 – Sakura and a Game of Tag in the Garden
Card Captor Sakura Clear Card TV Anime is being broadcast in several countries around the world via online services in a simultaneous or semi-simultaneous fashion. Please check the guide below to see if your country is included:
If you watch the anime via one of these channels, you’ll be supporting the creators and helping to make Card Captor Sakura even more popular worldwide.
In the manga, the way FLIGHT is secured is a big mess, specially in the magazine chapter. CLAMP fixed that a little for the tankoubon release and for the anime, they did justice to the card by proving a whole episode for it.
Sonomi!! ♡ She is as lovely and crazy as always. I am happy Ohkawa managed to fit her in even though she doesn’t appear in the manga at all in that chapter.
So Tomoyo asked her mother’s company to develop a recording drone. Of course. That is not in the manga, though, and I wonder why. It seems like the most logic thing and the script was written by Ohkawa after all. Maybe we will see it in the manga in the future? Either way, this will elevate Tomoyo’s recordings to another level, haha.
The part where Sakura lay all cards on the table so that Kero can take pictures and send them to Eriol was interesting. Yes, Kero, that is your role as guardian, take care of your master, do something useful for once! =P That is also not in the manga and at least it shows that they are still somewhat worried about the nature of those cards. Sometimes I feel like that issue is put aside in the manga. Also, Syaoran asks Kero if Spinel ever replies his messages was a bit shady xD
As I said above, it seems that Ohkawa redeemed herself by with how FLIGHT was secured. It was nice to see Sakura using all those different cards. Also, I am getting strong “The Jump” vibes from GRAVITATION. Is GRAVITATION the new “The Jump”?
What was the deal with Tomoyo all breathless and the two of them WORRIED about her? I guess it makes sense that she’s breathless considering she had to run all the way to Sakura. Syaoran is athletic so he didn’t feel as tired and Sakura had used GRAVITATION. I like those little details that make things more realistic. But on the other hand, Ohkawa should be just as careful with other vital plot elements, like the potential plot hole we will see in the next episode.
So, one of the things we were all curious about was whether Akiho’s house was going to be Eriol’s house in the anime as well. Judging from the preview of the next episode, Akiho is indeed living in Eriol’s former house. As we know, the house was demolished in The Sealed Card movie and an amusement park was built in its place. If she’s living there, that means the house was never demolished in the first place and we have a potential plot hole alert or The Sealed Card movie should no longer be considered as part of the anime storyline, which would be so weird, if you ask me. Let’s wait and see if this topic is going to be addressed any differently from the manga or if it’s going to be the same.
Lastly, I just want to point out that the animation throughout the entire episode was very on point. Even the faraway shots looked good.
Next episode shall begin in Tomoyo’s house still (judging from some leaked screen caps). I think it will be the part where she takes Syaoran’s body measures to make his costumes.
