Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card (2018) is the sequel to the anime Cardcaptor Sakura (1998-2000). You can watch the Prologue episode, along with the rest of the series, for free with (many, many) ads on Crunchyroll here.
I recently binge watched Cardcaptor Sakura on Netflix (though taking a break at episode 50 because I do recall watching most of it as a kid) and found out that there was a Cardcaptor Sakura sequel both in manga and anime form. I read good things, so I checked out the prologue episode. Here are some thoughts I had on it.
Major spoilers ahead for the entire Cardcaptor Sakura series – original, Clear Card, anime, manga and movies. You have been warned.
So I’m in China (woohoo!) and thus no Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc., so I’m ranting on my blog. Because that’s what blogs are for.
I’ve finally watched the film everyone’s been raving about recently: The Hunger Games. I know, late to the party but better late than never, I guess?
Here is why I will not watch (or I may watch but not enjoy) the second film:
1) Isn’t this a tween version of Battle Royale? I’m a baby so can’t take blood/gore so never read Battle Royale past the first few pages, but I believe the tributes-fight-to-the-death part is exactly the same.
2) I hate love triangles.
3) I read spoilers and Katniss will not end up with the person I want her to end up with.
Boo!! :( I also fast-forwarded parts of the first film towards the end. I just got bored and annoyed with the plot. Unfortunately it’s really not my cup of tea, which is such a shame because I’ve heard such good reviews about it.
ARRRGHHHH. If she just ended up with the guy I want her to be with (who she totally should be with) then I’d probably enjoy watching this thing. But she won’t, and it’s inevitable I guess. You get thrown into a life-or-death situation, it’s unsurprising you turn to someone close by for love and comfort.
I also think Peeta looks a little too young for Katniss. It’s super cute that he’s been in love with Katniss for so long, but I think the actors lack chemistry. I had a look and found that Hutcherson (actor portraying Peeta) is two years younger than Lawrence (doubt I need to explain who she is :p). I have a feeling I’d enjoy the books more.
