Episode 14: Yuki Is Essentially Julie Andrews

May 14, 2017

In this week's episode Touya is in a school play and a card shows up for about 2 minutes... that's mostly it.

Touya's school is having a festival which Yuki invites Sakura to. It seems her brother didn't bother to invite her. Touya also conveniently forgets to tell her that he has the starring role -- as Cinderella! But let's be real, Touya isn't anywhere near the best choice for the role. In fact, we argue that Yuki would be a way better option! I guess lucky for Touya a Clow Card makes the whole event way more exciting/deadly (well, kinda).

Episode 13: Don’t Listen to Uncle Yamazaki

April 13, 2017

Sakura and her crew have earned a field trip to the local zoo. And who wouldn't love that, what with all the cute animals running around. Also who do we have to pay to get to play tug-of-war with some elephants? 

As usual, a card comes around to ruin the fun (if you can call writing a school report at the zoo "fun") and Sakura must come to the rescue of the cute animals! ---- also her friends/the people of Tomoeda. But really it's all about the animals.

Episode 12: Like “Groundhog Day” But Cuter

April 2, 2017

Well, well, well! Time certainly has passed since our last episode! Perhaps it was due to the TIME card and not our dear hosts *cough cough*.

Sakura is worried about her upcoming recorder test, but manages to pass. But wait, the next day she has the test again? What's going on? Looks like everyone is stuck repeating the same day, much like Bill Murray in "Groundhog Day" -- except Bill Murray wasn't nearly as cute as Sakura (sorry, Bill). Even though Syaoran continues to be a smug little jerk, they have to team up if they're ever going to move past this day.

Episode 11: Everyone Loves Their Cousins

February 17, 2017

It's Sakura's first playdate at Tomoyo's house which seems odd since they've been friends for a year or so. Anyway we see further evidence that Tomoyo is friggin' loaded and that her excentric behavior must be genetic. Still, the Daidouji/Amamiya family is nothing if not loyal (at least to their cousins), and the Kinomoto family is very patient with them.

(Also yay non murder-y card!)

Episode 10: Shoulders and Legs For Days

January 31, 2017

Finally! A non-murderous card!

Sakura and her classmates are enjoying their school sports day. Even with some (somewhat) friendly competition from Syaoran and her dad running late Sakura is having a great time. We’re introduced to Tomoyo’s busy mother who, it turns out, has a grudge against Fujitaka. Clearly this must be solved with a race! But the troublesome Flower card is making things difficult.

Also it seems that it’s an Amamiya/Daidouji family trait that they fall in love their cousins. *shrug*

Episode 9: Let’s Just Rename it Cardcaptor Moon

January 25, 2017

This week we see a really cool card, but also the very unsettling relationship between Sakura's friend Rika and their teacher Terada-sensei. Even though it becomes a useful plot point in capturing the card, we're thankful that the relationship is only implied in the anime (and downright ignored in the English dub).

Also we talk enough about the similarities between this and Sailor Moon to the point where we're wondering if we shouldn't just rename the podcast to a joint name (just kidding... but also a little not).

Episode 8: Kero Is a S**t Mentor

January 7, 2017

Happy New Year!

We finally see the entrance of Li Syaoran, who of course captures our hearts later in the series, but now he's a total jerk!

Also the Thunder card is not only a) wrongly named but also b) trying to kill people (like most other cards). And we also get a very cute battle costume, but we have to question the material choices... also why the cat ears?

Episode 7: Japanese Security Sucks So Bad

December 18, 2016

Sakura, Kero, and Tomoyo become elegant art theives in order to capture a Clow Card that's lurking at the art museum. But a persistent little kid is getting in the way. Also we ramble and rant about lax Japanese security, how Bob Ross is a god, and a bit of Sailor Moon (nothing new there).

Episode 6: Ghost Mom

November 17, 2016

Something spooky is lurking in the woods near Sakura's school! When Sakura and her classmates investigate they find a ghost, but they all see something different which makes this whole thing even weirder. It gets weirder (and more murder-y...again) when Sakura returns later and the ghost she sees is her deceased Mom, which in turn nearly results in Sakura falling to her death...again. What is it with cards making her nearly plunge to her doom?

Episode 5: Is That Really a Panda?

October 30, 2016

We're back after our unexpected break!

There's a totally cute toy shop opening in Tomoeda, but it seems the shop owner as a troubled past. The panda toy from her shop keeps getting "stolen" from people's homes and ending up back at the shop. This causes the owner, Maki, to have to move her shop to another town. Luckily magical girls are totally common/helpful and Sakura is on the case.
