  • Cool!

    9.3
    Ah, the battle between Syaoran and Shougo. Really cool, but the police came before they could finish. Ah, that boy's Kudan was pretty funny.

    Oh, and that man and woman was cool, and, I wonder why they owed a favor to the Witch. And Kurogane's as though as steel. What an attitude…

    And that great scene with the song; one of the things I really liked. Also, we get something about why Kurogane was sent to another world; but far from all about it though.

    And later on, the episode got pretty cool; when they meet people from their original worlds, and when Kurogane fights and all.

    Finally, Sakura wakes up at the end. Exciting!

    Ah, this was yet another great episode! 9.3/10moreless
  • One word : WOW!

    9.7
    Shougo (the gang leader) and Syaoran’s fight is interrupted by the arrival of the police, so he gets to return the first feather to Sakura. They rest in an inn owned by the kindly Sorata and Arashi (whom CLAMP fans will recognize from their important roles in X), where Kurogane dreams of meeting his own Kudan. As Kurogane and Syaoran seem to have totally ignored Yuuko in the last episode when she told them they’d see familiar faces, Kurogane goes dashing after a Princess Tomoyo lookalike and Syaoran gets surprised by the reappearance of King Touya and Yukito in an okonamiyaki restaurant - Kurogane ends up in a fight with some of the street punks, but that’s about it really.



    Tsubasa’s anime adaptation is still kind of dull a lot of the time - my attention really wandered a lot, and the flashbacks to the previous episodes were really quite unnecessary given how it’s only the third one! I suspect most of this would be negated if I wasn’t just letting most of the dialogue flow over my head. There were more plus points, though, this time round than last in my opinion - the animation was better (Kurogane’s fight with the crappy green spikey blob looked good, even if it WAS a crappy green spikey blob) and I’m definitely enjoying Kajiura’s work here more than her work on Erementar Gerad (just compare the Englishy insert songs for each show - Tsubasa’s is about a million times better. Plus the music is basically cooler). So it looks like this one’s safe for the moment, too.moreless

    Sakura finally wakes up, only for the ending but long enough to see the love of her life sleeping peacefully. I could see the sadness and confusion in her eyes, Poor Girl. I really think Kurogane kicks butt with that sword of his. And they all look really cute in those outfits. :) I'm glad they which outfits in all the worlds they go to, I don't really like it when they wear the same outfit in every single episode. I do like their outfits though.moreless
