Another double title page this month! And what a lovely one, on top of it, showing our lunar-based magicians. I wonder if we will get a sun one — but then again, who would feature in it? I know there is Kerberus and Spinel buuuut…
So the business with Sakura getting shrunk is over — which is good since it took longer that I would have wanted. Sakura shows the REPAIR card to Tomoyo, which looks just like her, and Tomoyo seems surprised. She asks Sakura to let her handle any damages that may occur to costumes made by her, and that’s very noble and adorable of Tomoyo, but it caught my attention how many pages and frames CLAMP used for it. It seems like it will be important later on.
A parents’ day! It seems appropriate, given that we’ve never had this amount of parents/guardians in Card Captor Sakura before. What a fun idea to put them all together, and personally I love any excuse to see Fujitaka and Sonomi interaction.
I love how best dad Fujitaka seems very enthusiastic about going to Sakura’s school, and even Sonomi made it even though she is always really busy (still no sight of Tomoyo’s father, huh?).
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think it’s the first time that we got the confirmation that Akiho’s parents passed away right after she was born? That explains why the clan did what they did to her, because her parents weren’t around. I really can’t remember if this was already revealed before.
Sakura is such a dear, making Akiho feel comfortable. Sakura you are a ROLE MODEL!
The music teacher is… handsome? He has cool hair. But then again, does CLAMP ever draw anyone ugly?
Kaito arrives and Fujitaka seems to know his presence, somehow? To the point where he is taken by surprise when everyone starts clapping, he was clearly distracted. While Sonomi seemed clueless about Kaito’s arrival. It’s curious to learn that Fujitaka could have been an even better vessel for the forbidden magic, according to Kaito. I bet no one ever thought of him that way.
Everyone’s parents/guardians look so PRETTYYYYY.
Kaito is about to make mischief again when oh-oh, Nadeshiko makes a surprise appearance! You didn’t think she would miss such an important even such as parents’ day, did you? Kaito seems LEGIT surprised, busted, caught in the act!
Will she know about him? I am very curious to what she will tell him!
