「さくらと出口のない部屋」 (Sakura to Deguchi no Nai Heya)
“Sakura and The Room with No Exit”
Piggybacking off of its strong start, this week’s episode was just as good as last week’s (if not a wee bit better)!
Kicking off right after last week’s abrupt ending, it looks like we still don’t know all that much about what’s going on. Seeing how all the original Clow Cards are still blank and Sakura is now in possession of two new cards, I don’t think it’s too much of a stress to think she’ll have to collect new versions of all the cards that were previously available. That said, it would help if we could get a wee bit more info when it comes to who’s behind all of these shenanigans. Besides a few glimpses at a masked figure who only appears in Sakura’s dreams, but has the ability to affect things outside of them, we can only speculate just who or what is involved in all of this. That said, I don’t think it’ll be too long before the story ramps things up and we get the answers we’re looking for.
Shifting gears, boy was it great watching Sakura go through the motions this week. Besides all the adorable moments between her and Tomoyo, I loved getting to see Sakura and Touya duke it out even though the two were supposed to have grown a bit more understanding at the end of the original series. At this point though, I’m really hoping he’ll catch Kero-chan while he’s not pretending to be a stuffed animal and finally call Sakura out on it (too bad it’ll never happen though).
All-in-all, not too much to really say about this episode. Besides Tomoyo getting an opportunity to help out with her trusty sewing tools on her, we didn’t really learn all that much this week except that these new cards can appear just about anywhere and at any time. As I said earlier though, hopefully we’ll more about what’s going on in time and that the story’s pacing keeps up at its current pace if not move a little faster. Anyways, I’ll catch you guys next week where it looks like we’ll get to see some more school antics as well as a new outfit on Sakura!
See you then!
