Leaving off from last time, Sakura tries to find the culprit behind the earthquakes. Also, a mysterious being decides to fight Sakura and Meiling.
Leaving off from the last episode, Sakura captures the card that caused an earthquake around Tomoyo’s house. That card is Swing. After everyone woke up again, the girls spend their times eating snacks while Akiho becomes disappointed as she slept during her visit. Afterwards, Akiho splits up with Sakura, Meiling and Tomoyo for the day.
While Sakura and Meiling head home, a mysterious figure decides to fight them. Using the same moves Meiling used with Syaoran to capture the Twin card, Sakura and Meiling did the same move. With that, Sakura is able to capture Struggle. Kero wakes up and becomes disappointed for not capturing the footage. The next day, Meiling heads back to Hong Kong as she bids farewell. Before she left, she requests Sakura to her by her first name. She accepts.
I have to admit that the culprit behind the earthquake is quite surprising. The card has a dragon shape, which can explain its tracks on the ground. Still, it’s nice to see the Flight card become so happy that it causes Sakura to fly all over the place.
Aside from the light-hearted moments, things get a bit dark. Kaito’s encounter with Akiho looked very sinister. From this, it becomes obvious that Kaito is the villain and using Akiho as his pawn. It’s evident when he uses his stopwatch to erase Akiho’s memories by turning back time. The question is, what exactly is he scheming? We will find out soon.
As for the fight against the mysterious being, it’s nice that Meiling manage to hold Struggle off. While defeating Struggle is the same as the Twin card, Meiling seems happy that she was able to defeat a card with Sakura.
Aside from that, it’s nice to see her share how happy she is to Sakura. Along with the talk of different types of good people, Meiling is giving Sakura a different viewpoint. In a way, Sakura might be caring about other people too much that she and Syoran stopped caring for themselves.
In a way, Meiling is telling Sakura to find her happiness so that she can make Syaoran open up his eyes. To me, shows how much Meiling grew up since her first appearance. Still, it’s sad to see her go, but surely it won’t be the last time Sakura and her friends will see her. ¶
