And so it was confirmed Eriol's mansion was torn down and turned into an amusement park. Movie2 events fully confirmed.
It seems the mansion is now being kept (again) by magic alone. Interesting...

I wonder what the great grandfather meant when he talked about gifting the villa to Sakura? I doubt she (or even her father) can afford the upkeep on it. Or the taxes.

Shame they didn't talk about the Sakura cards. We still don't know why they "disappeared". Was it Kaito's doing? Or maybe Eriol himself did it to prevent Kaito from stealing them, not knowing it would lead to Sakura unconsciously creating her own cards.

Overall a really good episode. Every scene was great. They confirmed that Nadeshiko also had powers (I forgot if that was implied in the original), and Sakura was given a key she treasured. I think I see where this is going. Her key and her clear cards will be stolen and she'll use her mother's key and the revived Sakura cards to fight Kaito.

Kero and Yue didn't seem to know what Eriol was talking about when he mentioned an amusement park too, implying people's memories have also been altered.

To be perfectly honest, I really think that next week's "finale" will be more a season finale, with another season airing sometime later (pointing towards fall 2018/winter 2019). There's still a lot of mysteries that are left unresolved, and given the most recent chapter of the manga, there's no way this series can be wrapped up in just one episode.

Agreed that this is not as good as the original, as it does suffer from a lot of problems, especially in terms of the handling of the Clear Cards (i.e. a good number of them aren't really that exciting and sometimes feel like an afterthought in some episodes). However, there are moments that, when done right, is able to match the charm of the original series.

My guess is that there's something special about the villa when it pertains to Sakura's mother, and as such Sakura'a great grandfather has a reason to give it to her.

dang, Sakura's whole family is OP. If they actually got interested and took magic seriously, they probably be one of the big ones.

Thought it was cool that not only the bro, but the father knew something is up with Sakura. But they trust in her and let her be.

One thing I don't get is that even thought they removed it from the anime, in the manga, iirc, Sakura splits the magic power of eroil in half giving it to her father. If he has that much magic power in him, how come he isn't more magically aware.

I'm pretty sure the "giving her the villa" thing was just another example of the immortal trope that rich people have no concept of scale. Just like Tomoyo's mother sees nothing wrong with giving her daughter a high-class home theater and a small army of personal bodyguards to bring her clothes at a moment's notice. There are series out there where rich parents give their children entire islands as birthday gifts.

I'm curious about how Akiho fits into this now. Is she the relic he stole, or is she somehow connected to it? Either way, I get the impression from the rabbit's comment that if Kaito goes through with his plans and uses the relic, this could have dire consequences for Akiho.

Anyway, I'm glad to finally know exactly what Syaoran's been so upset about all this time: he doesn't really know all that much about the threats coming, only that Sakura's power is growing exponentially and both his mother and Eriol fear that an overabundant power could turn around and lead her to pain and loss. He knew she'd be making new cards and wouldn't have much control, but that's about it. And he rushed his transfer to be sure that he'd be at her side as much as possible while she faced the dangers and pain he power must bring.

Yeah, I don't think the reason he wanted to give Sakura the villa is any deeper than the one that was stated. It was Nadeshiko's favorite so he wanted her daughter to have it, that's it. He didn't really think everything through. The key is what's important IMO.

There are still questions hanging that I'm not sure what to make of them. Eriol's explanation filled some holes, although I don't buy his reasoning. So because Yue doesn't have a poker face he couldn't tell them or Sakura about the situation? Because leaving her utterly in the dark with cards manifesting for reasons she doesn't know seems like a really safe plan. Heck let's not tell Sakura about this OP magician targeting her that could approach her at any time and she'd never realize he was a threat until it's too late...

At least Syaoran's struggles makes sense. Sakura's power is growing at an incredible rate. He's both doing everything he can to reach a level high enough to be able to help her and is worried what might happen to Sakura.

Guess we'll have to wait on an explanation on what happened to the Sakura Cards. Although I could agree with the idea that this was basically anti-theft measure. No point stealing them when even Sakura can't use them

So Kaito is a renegade magician. Great, you don't just lower your guard on those kinds of people especially when they set their eyes on you. Sakura is in grave danger.

And about that key, why do I think it's a magic item?

One thing bothers me. Until now, Eriol communicated with Syaoran using technology and they never had any problem. So why did he decide to use magic to call Kero and Yue? My logic may be flawed, but I would think a magician would be able to notice a magical communication far more easily than a technological one. And in fact, Kaito did notice. Did Eriol do it on purpose?

Whelp Akiho is clearly this Relic butler dude has. However, due to her now being friends with Sakura, Sakura will clearly defeat him with the Power of Friendship.

That's how Sakura rolls Well, with Eriol's final test it was more the power of love.

I wonder if Sakura will actually use the new mirror card to find more about herself before it's too late. Like for real, at one point she'll need to learn the truth.

So...this show is finished today.

Not going to lie, I thought it was an underwhelming finale. It felt rushed and I think the season really needed at least two more episodes. Even during the final fight when she confronted the mysterious cloaked figure (which the identity turned out to be extremely predictable) felt flat. Kaito and whatever true plans he had didn't really interest me in the end either.

The show really had some pacing problems from the beginning that didn't manage to fix itself to the end.

I also wish they gave some of the more prominent cards like Mirror more spotlight.

On the positive side, the show did revisit some moments from the first season, bought back Meiling, and gave me a feeling of nostalgia.

Even for a non-ending, that was boring. Don't think there's any announcement for another season yet? Though given CLAMP's speed, who knows when the manga will finish, so maybe that's why they haven't scheduled something (compared to a consistent weekly shonen manga). I kind of wish they hadn't bothered to make this series yet and had instead waited until year or so for the manga to finish (or at least get closer to finishing). Or maybe they just wanted to air this series before the hype died down.

I always dislike fakeouts, but this felt particularly annoying. Just an excuse to have a few flashy action scenes, then nothing. I was almost expecting they would complete the elemental set, but guess not until Sakura has a geology class. Though we get a few more clues (sleepwalking attacker, the Hope card does exist). But after Eriol started giving out answers last episode, now we're back to just vague cryptic statements. I was kind of hoping that Syaoran and Kero could coordinate more now since they're both kind of in on the secret, but no such luck.

It was a fun series, and it was nice to see many old favorite characters. I guess its better than having a rushed anime ending, but because they're waiting for the manga, the pace just felt extra slow. How many scenes in the series were just characters and food? Its cute, but gets repetitive. Ok nostalgia trip, but hard to evaluate until the story is complete, and who knows when that will be. I feel episodes of the original series were more enjoyable on their own compared to this series' endless teasing. Oh well, could have been worse, but I still prefer the original's happy ending.

Well that covers how the heck they could wrap things up....the story isn't finished . The anime is just down airing. It really is a non-ending.

I suppose it's nice they gave a minor clash between Sakura and Akiho. Although it's basically a pointless encounter since time is just messed around with. I suppose with the prominence of record this could lead to her witnessing this encounter through that magic. But for the time being it's left as being utterly pointless. Oh sure the butler is a bit worn out, but I'm sure he'll be fine after a night's rest. This guy recklessly used that magic before when he simply said a phrase that was a bit suspicious to Akiho and didn't even require time magic.

Does leave you feeling unsatisfied. All the cryptic stuff, the mystery, the teasing about future reveals and really we didn't gain that much. And with that title I kind of thought this episode would remotely discuss what is going on with Sakura's regular cards in their cleared state or something more detailed about what these guys want her making cards for. But no dice. Just a reveal that Sakura is really in trouble while she's left in the dark. As things stand she can't even handle sleepwalking Akiho much less super powerful magic man.
