Apparently, a new and lovely transfer student shows up. Will Sakura be able to become friends with her?
Given the title of this episode, there is a new transfer student. Her name is Shinomoto Akiho. Apparently, she attended school overseas in Italy, England, France, Germany and Hong Kong. Given how she speaks, she comes from a formal family. Akiho thought that she would have a hard time making friends. It’s not necessarily the case since she made friends with Sakura quite easily. Does it have to do with Sakura’s and Akiho’s last name being similar? Maybe.
During class, the Japanese teacher calls on Sakura and a few other students to write kanji on the blackboard. She manages to do it, but notices something strange outside in the window. She saw trees moving, which surprises her. Of course, with Sakura distracted, Tomoyo have to do something. She says that Sakura is sick and they went out of the classroom together. Given that Tomoyo took a bag with her, she is obviously up to something.
When Sakura and Tomoyo went outside, Sakura told her she saw moving trees. With that, Tomoyo takes out a costume for Sakura and had a field day recording her. Either way, the trees are trying to leave the school. To stop the trees, Sakura traps them with the Seige card. She eventually uses Aqua to stop them in their tracks to capture the fifth card, Action.
While Tomoyo becomes disappointed that she couldn’t record the action. It’s because Sakura used Seige, which covered everything. Thankfully, she has another chance seeing the trees moved back to its rightful place.
In the end, Sakura with Kero met with Yue. It seems that they are not any closer to finding out more information about the Clear Cards. It seems that the new key is the only tool, which allows Sakura to use the cards and capture them. While Sakura shares the information to Sayoran, it seems that he is waiting until the time comes. With that, I wonder if Akiho have anything to do with the Clear Cards? Given that she transferred out of nowhere seems suspicious. We will find out sooner than later as Sakura captures more cards.

Oh, neat, you’re blogging Clear Card.
I’m keeping up with the manga as well, and I’m interested on seeing the anime-original content this can possibly have. The previous episode had Tomoyo allude to Meilin and I’m assuming her cute costume this episode was inspired by her. I hope to see an appearance by her down the road.
With smartphones being a thing now in CCS, it was ammusing seeing Skaura struggle to write kanji. 😛
I decided to blog it mostly because of of the nostalgia. Maybe one day I will rewatch the original series.
But yes, it’s funny how Sakura still struggle to write Kanji given that there are smartphones. In fact, there are Japanese dictionary apps that allow one to look up kanji easily using radicals and other methods such as drawing it on the screen. But it’s interesting to see technology advanced in just a few years in the anime. Even Tomoyo is using an HD camcorder now.
This is a nicely written review, I am actually reading it inside my head with a chibi voice. Anyway, plot like this is quite the signature of Cardcaptor Sakura, a new transfer student then something suspicious happened. Remember, Eriol Hiiragizawa. Nonetheless, I thought this is a cute episode with Tomoyo being just herself and we all love it. Now, I can’t wait to see what involvement does this new student have to do with the Clear Cards.
Given how sudden Akiho’s transfer is and her name being simular to Sakura, there is probably something suspicious, which the next few episodes will reveal. Given that there was the masked figure looking at the window of Sakura’s bedroom in the 3rd episode, it can explain some things that will come soon.
Either way, I am glad that you enjoyed my review.
