Extreme close-up for the title page! The illustration is probably a match of Chapter 25’s title page. The flowers and Syaoran and Sakura’s costumes are very similar.
Super cute “DTR” (ie: Discuss The Relationship) moment between Syaoran, Yue and the cards. I like how we find out that Sakura wasn’t completely clueless in regards to Syaoran and that she sensed things as well. Syaoran’s behavior for the past 6 volumes has been completely riddled out, which means we’re crossing another mystery off the list.
I love how CLAMP draws The Light with little sparkles around it =)
SUPER CUTE SMILE Syaoran is giving here on page 12. I think this is the most genuine smile he has ever given in Clear Card arc.
And then, Syaoran uses The Fly to cast wings on his back and it looks very cool. He even wrote “Syaoran” on the cards so as they would obey to him. I didn’t think CLAMP would go as far as that but hey, they did.
Back to Fujitaka’s library/dream world where Sakura and Akiho are trapped. As it’s been pointed out by several people, different font types are used when Akiho is speaking, which may indicate that different voices from different people are speaking to her. My most obvious guess would be that the Magician Society are using Akiho as a proxy to speak via her.
The voices talk about absorbing Sakura’s power into a vessel, which could either be Akiho (most likely) or the book she is holding. Are they trying to create the most powerful being ever by combining powers from the most powerful magicians? And are they using Akiho’s powerless body as a vessel?
Did CLAMP make a mistake here when Sakura conjured “Fly” instead of FLIGHT?
Sakura manages to get out of her house with Akiho, only to find Syaoran and Yue, who came for her rescue after being warned by Kero. But there is Kaito and Momo too, and it sounds like time has halted or something, since the surroundings look clearly twisted.
We have all the major players gathered, the final (?) battle (?) may now begin. Phew!
As previous chapters have been indicating, the plot gears continue to move fast! It definitely looks like we are approaching some sort of closure, whether it’s the arc or the story altogether.
The updated list of cards secured so far:
28 pages for this chapter. 86 pages for volume 6 so far. We’re halfway or a little more than halfway there for volume 6. Still a few chapters before the volume is over so we may have a full closure on this volume, or the beginning of a new arc. We’ll see. Personally, I think this is it and we won’t be getting a new arc, but what do I know?
Next chapter is out next month!
