Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card: Episode 4 Review, Sakura and the Lovely Transfer Student


We have a lovely interaction between Sakura and her brother Toya. He makes breakfast for the two of them pancake, with an egg on top and broccoli on the side. He notes that Sakura is “spacey,” and that she came home “soaking wet,” the day before. He comically gives his broccoli to Sakura claiming that it will help her grow, but Sakura states that it is simply because he hates them. Later in the day Sakura and her friends are introduced to a new exchange student, Akiho Shihomoto.

Akiho quickly becomes friends with Sakura and her crew. She has lived in Italy, England, Hong Kong and Germany, as a result her Japanese is too formal. While in class Sakura notices that the trees are uprooting themselves, she makes a scene in class. Tomoyo covers for her suggesting that Sakura has a stomach ache and needs to go to the nurse. Tomoyo offers to take her, she has with her a new costume and her camcorder.

The trees attempt to leave the school grounds and Sakura releases her staff. She looks at her four clear cards and determines that the “Aqua card,” might make the trees move faster. She decides to use the Siege card. She traps them within the cube but they begin to ram against the walls. She commands the Siege card to become more flexible, allowing for more give to the walls. Seeing the threat that they might break the walls, she uses the Aqua card. She uses the card too fill the cube with water, preventing the trees from being able to move as they’re now floating. Sakura is able to secure the “Action,” card. Another, fun episode and it seems the more Sakura captures the more complicated her captures can be.

  1. I love seeing Sakura use cards in combinations to create some interest effects. I want to know how no one else noticed the Siege cube thing in front of the school given it isn’t exactly small and clearly it is visible given Tomoyo was filming it.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the episode.
