Lol, Touya still has the same impression towards Syaoran as I remember from the original series.

Episode 9 felt really nostalgic with the battle outfits and I think it's nice they gave more time between Sakura and Syaoran. I think Syaoran was going to ask Sakura out too before getting interrupted D:

And yet again we have a card appear that bears a connection to what Sakura was thinking at the time. This time she was thinking about the whirlpool that captured her when she was last at the aquarium, and a swirly card appears. I'm getting more and more of an impression that this is in part something born from Sakura herself, manifest from her own subconscious thoughts. Not necessarily desires like how Record came when she wanted something to record things with, just thoughts in general from the strange new drones to the memory of the whirlpool. Of course, not all fit just off the top of my head, but there's enough to have me suspicious. As CLAMP likes to say, there is no coincidence, only inevitability (hitsuzen).

It is pretty odd how Spiral behaved almost exactly like Watery, down to the exact timing, location, and manner of its attack.

Syaoran never used to have a freezing magic of his own: when he wanted stuff frozen he had to rely on the Freeze card. He's used lightning, fire, and (I think) wind before, but never this.

In other news, I can't see the word spiral without having Uzumaki come to mind, and it's the last thing I want to think of when watching this series.

It's kind of irritating that we had to wait 9 episodes for basically any Syaoran-Sakura interaction, or indeed Syaoran in battle mode. But at least it was worth it.

Ack, not sure I can withstand just how sweet and adorable Sakura and Syaoran are. Not to mention that unlike other romcoms, Sakura doesn't get jealous at all, ever, not even when Meilin is offering hints during their date. Well, the idea of dating her true love is still a bit of a new idea to her, but still, that's part of what makes this series kind of refreshingly sweet.

All the parallels to the original cards are building up- I think the original series said something like there's no such thing as coincidence? Before it was Eriol handling everything, so coincidental situations made sense, now, well, who knows.

Fun to see Sakura use so many cards, as well as to see Syaoran chip in, and in a Tomoyo costume too (and Tomoyo's drone already proves handy). And good thing the guards aren't paying attention either (though Tomoyo might as well just rent out the place with all her bodyguards already involved). Too bad their date was ruined (and never expected Syaoran to show off English skills now), but its pretty funny seeing Syaoran automatically clash with Touya only to remember that he should be more respectful to his girlfriend's brother. I wonder if next week will progress the major plot or just be another card plot rerun (maze now?).

So Syaoran won't get a card this time around?

His magic is powerful enough so it's okay?
How does his magic work btw?

One thing sad, from what Syaoran tried to say I take it that they don't consider mutual confession to be the same as an agreement to become an official couple. Seriously, why should he have to ask her to go out with him, as in be his girlfriend, after all this!? And I mean really, a lot of shows I've seen they seem to just automatically equate acceptance or return of a confession with becoming a couple, and everyone thinks of them as that, so what's the deal... I'd say it's because they're twelve but they're best friends with a girl who'd been going out with her boy for a long time before the original story even started.

The following are parts of a comment someone else made on reddit about this episode:

Quote:
If there's one thing I want to point out in this episode, it's the fact that I'm a little bit miffed at the translation lapses this episode, like Fujitaka saying how Sakura should go with someone who she "gets along so well (仲良し)". While we all know (and the entire CCSverse) knows SxS relationship is at THAT level, the subtlety that 仲良し gives is showing us how pure they still are to the point that they can't (still) even directly say they're going out. CR just had to directly translate it to "like" so now that subtlety and nuance is lost.

WHICH also brings me to the next translation lapse - Syaoran trying to say "besides, I'm going out (with you) (俺は、その、さくらと付き合っている)". He's not asking her out; THEY ARE ALREADY GOING OUT YET both of them haven't clearly labeled their relationship as such. Which is why he felt bad that he didn’t greet Touya properly, because he’s dating Sakura yet he treated Touya the same as he had before. This scene is trying to let us see how their relationship is gradually progressing, from purely being in mutual love (he likes her, she likes him, they get along that well, 仲良し), to that next level where they can confidently say they're INDEED going out (he LOVES her, she LOVES him, and they're boyfriend/girlfriend, 付き合ってる).

The interesting aspect is the striking similarity to the Watery capture. That does raise some key points. Whoever is at the core of these cards appearing knows intimate details of Sakura's activities in the past. A fair guess to say they are being somehow created by Sakura herself (some kind of unconscious defense mechanism to replace the cards she can't use right now). If that isn't the case then the person behind this knows some pretty important details (like how Watery caught her leg in the past) that not a lot of people should know. And no doubt these cards are locked in on Sakura herself. It didn't make a move against Tomoyo or Syaoran despite them being available targets.

It was nice for Syaoran to both be part of this and chip in. He does have skills after all. And it might help mentally to be able to help Sakura out even a little. The date itself was pretty nice. These two do have some cute moments when the show allows it.

Nice to finally see Syaoran play an active role, both on the romance and magic side. He and Sakura really do make a cute couple.

This episode confirmed, or at least increased, some of our suspicions regarding the cards. It does seem likely Sakura is creating them unconsciously. We know Syaoran knows something, and it was pretty telling that he thought they had to use the same method Sakura used to capture Watery to capture this card.

Kind of weird to not have Tomoyo or Syaoran pop up in person, or even hear their voices. On the other hand, nice to have Meiling call again. Funny to see pictures from the second movie's play, despite how that movie is non-canon (since Eriol's house is still standing, unless a broad stokes version of it happened).

They are adorable together but maybe its too much cuteness? At least Kero was there to act as a straightman to some of their naivete. I was hoping he and Momo would meet, but guess they're not going to rehash the first Kero and Suppi meeting. So now a new sleep and maze card (I'm not bothering to remember the Clear cards that are mostly copies of older cards). Looks like Akiho was actually affected and wasn't just faking, and so far Kaito looks a bit more sinister. The next preview had Eriol, but not sure I expect any progress.

If those photos and other references to the 2nd Movie have been showing up in the story, then it has to be canon. And I'm so glad it is
Of course, there's still the thing about Eriol's house, but let us hope the story clears those doubts.

Sakura and Akiho really get along well. They're incredibly similar.

2 more cards that are pretty much the same as the old cards. The way Sakura captured the Labyrinth card was disappointing. She didn't even have to try getting out of it or anything.

The labyrinth situation, as far as I can remember, seemed different in the Manga

The reason Tomoyo wasn't in this episode was because the manga deviation from the previous episode (where it went all out in paying homage to the Watery card episode from the original series) conflicted with her role in the manga story that was the basis of this episode (she was the one who called Sakura about the date with Syaoran in that version), and as such, Meiling substituted for her in the anime version.
