In the original OVAs she'd often wind up completely transforming spells and causing havoc with an accidental thought, and in the TV series her magic becomes so powerful it actually separates from her and acts on its own, becoming the main antagonist in the process.

From the flashback in CCS, it seems like the moment Clow decided to do something a card would form, a physical manifestation of his magic and intent. If Sakura's power is excessively powerful, and she isn't fully in control yet, it could be that the cards are being born randomly from her without warning. Or her power could be overwhelming the old cards. Or any number of other situations could arise from Sakura's power growing beyond her knowledge and understanding or her servants' predictions. There's definitely danger without a proper understanding and control of her growing strength, so I understand Kero's apprehension when her power is suddenly able to transcend time (which has already been established as an incredibly powerful class of magic that takes a ton of energy, yet Sakura didn't even notice).
I think that the first alarming thing, is that Sakura is so young. Clow was an old man. Sakura's powers are likely to grow only more once puberty hits in, and might not stop even after she matures.

I don't know if Sakura's magic is specifically geared towards something, but if she's making the clear cards on her own, then it would explain why several of these cards are so strong. However, it doesn't explain how the creepy butler knows about the existence of the cards. But to counter that, the flying ribbon is sentient and really likes Sakura a lot. And that card that transformed people into furries also reacted to Sakura's fears. So while there's no link that explains if she's making the clear cards, it's likely that she does have some level of influence on those cards if not on a subconscious level.

Another interesting point you make, is her being able to get Record to show the past. It took Syaoran a lot (probably also some life force or some equivalent), but she effortlessly did it without even wishing for it.

Another reason they may be alarmed is the fact that when she did this, it's quite clear that that's not what she meant to do. She might have had some thoughts in the back of her mind or something, but she had no legitimate intent to record the distant past. Whether the cards are born from her magic or are simply becoming hers after capture, she doesn't have full control over them. The same could be said of Flight. Flight loves Sakura clearly, but it has a mind of its own and sometimes tends to shoot around with her while she struggles to make it stop. Wild magic is definitely dangerous, especially if it's magic from one of the most powerful wizards around.

ok after todays episode i have a theory about what is happening.

Sakura body can't stand to her "suddenly rising of power this is being too painfull for her.

What is provoking her rising in power is that new cards creations, it's making her more strong but her body can't stand that ammount of power.

the buttler is the one inducing sakura to create that cards and become strong because he want her "to save akiho, she had a "hidden power which she not aware and it can take control over her and what sakur is seeing is not just a dream but a future vision, and she is seeying the future whem she need to help akiho the buttler himself don't have the power to prevent akiho to become possed by her power them he saw which sakura can save her and somehow find a way to "induce that new cards be created and sakura get more strong since while she can have a better chance tham him to save akiho he feel she still to "weak" for that and need to get strong before the times come.

Actually, I'm interested in the thing about her "synchronizing" with Sakura. Maybe that's the cause of the sudden power spike: a connection is somehow forming without either party's knowledge and this bond results in Akiho's hidden power compounding with Sakura's. And if that's the case then Akiho might actually conceivably be able to take the new cards once completed, as her power would have to be a near-perfect match for Sakura's own (not to mention that it would mean they were born from the united power and could recognize Akiho as parent/master as well). One other thing I can't help but wonder is why Akiho can SEE the figure in robes. Is she starting to see herself from a third-person perspective in those dreams, or is she actually a third individual separate from the figure? Like the dragon?

I thought it was interesting Akiho could see the person wearing robes as well, but that might be because her synchronization isn't complete. Eriol will finally give us some answers next week. About damn time.

Sakura's trip to her great grandfather's mansion was really nice. This time, Masaki isn't going to make the same mistake he did with Nadeshiko.

No way they can wrap things up in just two episodes, so I hope they'll find a good stopping point.

Well, at least this time Eriol will be giving answers BEFORE everything is said and done!

Really slow and nice first half, going into the more personal side of things, and then... oh boy, this just got really interesting If there was one person you wouldn't expect to be relevant to whatever is going on.

Next week we can finally get started! Just what is going on? What does it mean for Sakura and Akiho? HOw are they connected?

One thing I've noticed is that they've never, not even once, specifically stated that Syaoran is Sakura's boyfriend. Every time they start to specifically say exactly what their relationship is they're interrupted. It's clear that everyone can see that they're soulmates, even the great grandfather immediately identified him as the one that would "take her". Yet despite this they don't use words like "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" and they've never been able to just say what they are. I wonder whether this is supposed to have any significance.

this is just again the typical japanese culture, for then "talk about romance" is almost a taboo and many cases couples would rater avoid act or talk about romance or act romtantic in public because it's too embarrasying for them, specially nowadays, where they become less and less comunicative due to "technology draging them more and more to be "loners" and less wanting to get in relationships.

Many others series you can find that issue with couples avoiding being public open about they relationship, even many "harems" series use that cliche" when they have the mc in love with one girl but want to keep the "harem going", they make the couple "openly" allowing others girls getting inside even if the mc already is in love with a girl, he not gonna be able to admit it openly the same goes for the girl.

Either that, an hour-long special, or a season in the fall (when more chapters are ready).

Problem is that they've repeatedly TRIED to say they're in a relationship, and the failure even happens when it's just the two of them on a date, like at the aquarium. It's not just them keeping quiet in respect of classic Japanese courtesy, they're literally unable to spit it out due both to their own hesitation and events intervening.

well the hesitation part is due to they age(still middle schools and little kids like around 10 to 12 or 13) and being too shy which is part of what i talked, the "event intervening is the "cliche bad lucky" to create that "little drama", probably it goes to a point where they start to notice it and finally find a way to open admit it instead of brush it off or let the bad lucky keep going.

Finally Kero and Yue take action. Eriol had better have a good reason for why he hasn't warned them earlier. Though based on Kaito's words, Sakura has been the one creating the newer cards, accidentally? So maybe telling Sakura (with out of control powers) would have made things worse?

Interesting that Akiho shared the same perspective as Sakura and she actually recognized the robes. Maybe she isn't the robed figure? Or is it due to "synchronizing" with Sakura (whatever that means)? Aside from that, both Sakura and Akiho don't look like they're in good shape.

Cute to see Syaoran meet the in-law, well, great in-laws. Come to think of it, I'm not sure if Syaoran has talked to Fujitaka at all, but then both Fujitaka and even Touya have a reduced presence in this series. So this season/series is almost over, not sure how much more they can squeeze in. The first two seasons had big confrontations but also explanation episodes after that. Well, at least there's no romance/confession plot, which requires an episode at least too (Syaoran explaining himself might take a while though).

Guess we won't find out until the last episode if/when there's a continuation? Unless there's a rushed ending (or anime original one at that) doesn't seem like they can wrap things up in two episodes.

Since Kaito has never bothered to ask Sakura and co. for help, I think that Kaito is trying to steal Sakura's powers.

Wonder if Sakura's mother's sickness was also because her mother had more magic power than she could handle. Her mom responding to her might be signs that she has some power.

And her being able to come back and visit them occasionally too might be some of it

Episode 21 is out.

Good thing Sakura is doing better now. Her father is also such a kind man. She also captured the Mirror card pretty quickly. In the original series, the Mirror Card was one of my favorites.

Looks like Eriol began to make his move directly to help Sakura along with Yue and Kero. Unfortunately, the latter two's real life commmunications have been cut off. There's just one more episode left so I really wonder what how the show will really conclude. My guess is that Sakura will finally find out who Kaito is and they'll deal with him.

So we finally get confirmation that Sakura is making the cards, and that telling her probably wouldn't help the situation (and she probably hasn't put together the "coincidences" yet). Aside from that, funny how many answers we got in one episode for once. Fujitaka confirms he's known something has been up since fourth grade but has held back (and no mention of Nadeshiko's ghost). And bit of an awkward retcon, that they just say Eriol's house was torn down for the second movie amusement park then rebuilt more recently. Well, guess money is no object for a lot of the people involved anyway (like Sakura's great grandfather is rich too).

The original Mirror was better, but talk about overpowered, Sakura can just duplicate card powers now. And she almost confronts Syaoran on what he's been hiding from her. I wonder if there even is a limit to Sakura's power, so telling her that her stray thoughts are causing so much trouble would just burden her more. Seeing Syaoran at the end was sad, seeing him torn up worrying about Sakura while she's still... oblivious? Well, maybe innocent is a better world. I don't think they covered why the original cards lost power either (the newer cards' personalities sure are chaotic).

One episode left, it was a pretty good series. Not as good as the original, but was still so heartwarming to see all these old favorite characters. Still waiting for quite a few mysteries, I just hope they can answer them all. And ha, yeah, Kero has a better poker face than Yue.

I thought it was more "a wizard did it" than "somebody hired contractors". Especially with all that messing around with time.

I guess cat faces aren't as expressive?
