Sakura takes a breather from capturing cards as she decides to read picture books to children with Akiho.
After reading a picture book she borrowed from Rika called Buying Mittens, Sakura plans to participate in a reading session with children. She wants Akiho to join. While Akiho is hesitant to do so since her Japanese skills isn’t that go, Sakura convinces her to do it. Also, Sakura convinces Syaoran to play the piano as well. He asks his butler to come up with a score.
At the day of the reading, Yuki finishes his story. Afterwards, Sakura and Akiho changed into the outfit that Tomoyo provided and started reading while Syaoran started planning the music. The girls tell the story about a mother and child fox trying to buy mittens to keep their paws warm. After the reading event, Sakura tries to review the footage from the Record card. However, it instead recorded the past. Kero meets with Yue to talk about what he saw. Yue suggests that Sakura’s powers have become immensely strong.
I have to admit that it’s nice to see a laid-back episode. I have to admit that Sakura’s persuasion power is very strong. She manages to convince Syaoran to participate. I liked how his whole face almost blushed. Also, she manages to do the same for Akiho. I guess they can’t say no to Sakura since her persuasion power is super effective. Still, I find it funny how Tomoyo mentions that Sakura brought Syaoran’s and Akiho’s HP to 0. Either way, I have to admit the story is pretty cute since it had a heartwarming ending.
Also, it’s nice to see Syaoran talk to his butler. I find it funny how his sisters are spying on Wei while he talked to Syaoran. Eventually, Syaoran found out. I guess he doesn’t get along with her older sisters well given that they spam messages to his phone.
Aside from that, it’s interesting how the Record card records the past instead the reading. The recording was from over 30 years ago. Still, Yue mentioning that Sakura’s powers have become immensely strong doesn’t come at a surprise. After all, she managed to transform the Crow cards into more powerful Sakura cards on her own. This makes me wonder how she will confront Kaito in the end, who is a powerful magician in his own right. We’ll see soon enough. ¶
