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.

Episode 4: Basement Rainbows Are a Thing

October 10, 2016
Sakura is stuck inside on her day off doing chores. Booo! But she manages to finish the ridiculous amount of work with a little help from Kero. Yay! Except 2 cards she found while cleaning cause a bit of a ruckus and make things difficult for Sakura and company. Also booo! But even mischievous cards and Tomoyo's unsettling calmness/obsession won't stop Sakura from getting the job done -- whether that's Cardcaptor-ing or cleaning the whole damn house... twice.

Episode 3: You, [Pan]cake or Death?

September 18, 2016
Sakura's mission moves steadily along with the appearance of the slightly murderous Watery card. People (and penguins!) are in danger, but more importantly Sakura has her very 1st date with her crush Yukito. Never mind that the date goes awry and people almost die because it's all part of being a Cardcaptor... yay?

Episode 1: Sakura and the First Podcast

September 4, 2016
Janelle (https://twitter.com/krzyart) & Stefanie discuss the 1st episode of the '98 anime & the 1st chapter of the '96 manga. Sakura, somewhat reluctantly, takes up the mantle of Cardcaptor from the guardian of the seal Keroberos a.k.a Kero-chan. She & Kero must collect all the Clow cards so that a catastrophe is prevented. So let's talk about one of our all-time favorite anime -- also Sailor Moon.
