THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So folks, third OVA is out. expect sub in one or two days.

Summary:


Two big changes:
- Kinomoto was never in there in manga. why she did appear there? -.-
- A bit of yuuko's talk is cut out.


P.S. FOR ANYONE ASKING:
NO CARDCAPTORS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS. KINOMOTO WAS THERE FOR PURE FANSERVICE AS HOMAGE. SHE IS NOT RELATED TO PLOT

YAY its finally out. Me is happy.

Overall love it. Kinomoto's cameo wasnt a big deal for me. Since like what Fai already said she has nothing to do with the plot and I already knew that. Just fanservice. Though it was interesting that they decide to stick her in there.

Lets hope that they decide to make more.

overall, I hate two changes in ova.
- They took out Fai's flashback to "i wanna die"...
- Kinomoto replacing dead people - I certainly hope that it was implication that this kinomoto was "tokyo's" sakura, who got killed there, and not the one from ccs.


Overall, I am sad at censorship - we don't actually see sakura shooting anything, up until the two snakes...
And when these two snakes launch her to the wall - she falls with blood trail in manga. In tokyo revelations she...just falls >.>
And of course scene with Fai's "it'll turn to a fight" was not as intense as in manga. Also Fai was too happy when talking with yuuko
Graphically -wise sometimes faces were a bit off (mostly seen with Real Syaoran and Subaru)



On happier side - The OST usage was great and I LOVED the flashbacks this time. Its amazing that even the flashbacks to certain events beat their adaptation on TC :P

well after the fantastic ep 1 and 2 , it's a tad normal the quality of this one would drop a bit ?
I didn't mind Kinomoto , I was actually glad . but..mainly because i've been wanting to see her all this time ?;_;

now the big question is....what's gonna happen with the rest of the animation ? Only Clamp knows ....maybe I.G production knows too ? hopefully.

The sad thing was that quality animation and sound-wise was BETTER than both previous ovas, movie and 52 episodes of tv series together...

I noticed that in the last episode - once I got over being so happy to see it moving on my screen, I realized how much was really lacking :( Compared to the TV series, it was up to par, but on it's own?? Still not good enough :S

And what's up with the censorship? They're not broadcasting it - they're selling it with the manga that is un-censored. I don't get it...

That doesn't sound good :S I guess I'll have to see once it downloads...

the one thing they removed and that I don't appreciate is the part in which Kamui attacks Fuma , only to be grabbed by Fuma and then Fuma says that his brother told him to be careful of Subaru when he gets mad .
Why didn't they put that scene >_>

Finally. I will forever love this OVA series just because the Tokyo arc is my favorite and well...you can't beat seeing Kamui and the rest of the X crew. The censorship; I got over it. I liked the sound/music and liked how they did the ending as well.

Yes, I wish they would have included Fai's flashback. The whole Kinomoto thing didn't bug me too much.

THAT I am very sad about. I REALLY wanted to see that scene and I don't think it should have been cut. >.< I wanted that image in color and animation quite badly. Again, I still enjoyed it overall obviously...still gets a 10/10.

I understand limited Japanese, so I can't really pick too much apart -- I hear what I remember the manga saying xD But this part, I really didn't like. Is Ohkawa trying to tell us something?? Or was it I.G. that took the initiative to put it there?

It makes no sense. If they go on animating the rest of the arcs, how are they going to explain that? The only way I will accept it is if Ohkawa wanted it that way to send a message.

Yeah I missed that as well :(

The other thing is, I still can't get used to Subaru's voice. I swear, it's manlier than Mamoru's (Kamui). He's supposed to be girly :P Speaking of Kamui ... smexy as always, even if you lost your scene :( But I also love Mamoru, so that could be double bias on my part xD

And what happened to this scene: (I just grabbed it from the first place I could on the net)

This was the scene I was looking forward to more than any other. And it was so poorly done :( Where was the drama. I couldn't feel Fai's fear and anger and hurt and distrust. I couldn't feel his relief and softening and desperation as she spoke to him. And what was with that poorly executed gasp series :P

Better than Chronicles, but not as good as I expected. Will write more when I've watched it through again...

I was looking forward to that scene as well. Although, yes it was there, I wanted to see Fai hugging Sakura (exactly like in the manga) shown in the OVA. But oh well. Just hearing Fai cry was enough for me.

I didnt really like the whole transformation of Fai turning into a Vampire. I was expecting shouting from him not just little grunts here and there. In the manga he is fully thrashing around and crawling on the bed, then grabs Kurogane. But oh well. It was still amazing for me. It wasnt a poor job but not what I expected either.

OH I FORGOT ABOUT THE FUMA GRABBING KAMUI PART!!!! Damn I.G for not putting that in the OVA!!! Seriously. Ok now thats two things that tick me off that they missed. The Fuma part and the Fai flashback. What the hell?!?!?

This is only a small bit of detail but I absolutely ADORE when we see Fai turning into a Vanpire in the background holding onto Kurogane and Kurogane is stroking his shoulder. It was the sweetest thing! I had to rewind it to make sure my eyes werent playing tricks on me.

I havent read or seen CCS so could someone tell me who the hell is Kinimoto who appeared in my OVA when she wasnt in the manga. When I saw that I was like, "WHO THE HELL IS THAT?! Get off my screen!"

Was it just me or did the drawing of Subaru's face look a bit "weird" at times? I dunno.

Ok, I'll stop rambling on. Over all it was beautifully drawn as expected but some parts got me down. I give it a 9.5/10.

I couldn't bear to watch Sakura get hurt like that. At least we got to see her strong side. Little Sakura appearing was a nice effect as well. I just have one complaint...there wasn't enough Subaru >_<

I hope to see more like this in the future.

I really loved all the Sakura scenes, myself. They really did a good job adapting the manga to the screen in this one especially (unlike the first one, which cut my favorite Syaoran/Syaoran scene out. ;-;).

The music was great. I wish we had an OST or a single for the OVA, as there's a couple tracks in the whole production I've never heard and want in my library.

Loved this one the most, I think!

I agree with you there! If you think about it Subaru only appeared in OVA 2 for like 5 mins. That only leaves him to shine in OVA 3 and there just simply wasnt enough of him!!!

If I had to pick an absolute favouirte out of the 3 it would be OVA 2.

So I've watched it again (this time with subs, yay!) and I had a few things to add to what I wrote before...

I'm glad they kept a lot of the important lines. "My one and only princess" = love <333 And they tried to keep as many of the conversations as possible.

Kudos to Ohkawa! I don't know how she managed to fit all that material into that time frame -- why couldn't it have been longer :( -- but she did a superb job!

When I watched it through again, I got really annoyed by Kinomoto in there again, but then I had this thought: spoilers for up to current chapters

Anyway, just a thought.

Otherwise, too bad they left out the info on why Kurogane and Fai were chosen for the journey, and by whom ... but I suppose they don't want too leave to many questions in case they don't animate the rest of the arcs.

Overall, I have to give it a 9/10. Parts of the animation really don't deserve it, but I'm happy I got something better than BeeTrain ever did.

I have feared that the dénouement of this trio of OVAs would be rather disappointing considering the first two OVAs were so awesome. I also had concerns that there would not be any major battles fought in this OVA and was mostly expository dialogue and I feared that it may be a tad boring. In the end, my fears were unfounded; this instalment was just as good if not better than the other two!

I like the fact that Sakura actually gets to do something besides sleep in this episode and the expository dialogue that I feared that would be boring went rather well. Although, I found it odd to included Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura as the ghost/figment of imagination that guided Princess Sakura back to the Tokyo building and her last thoughts of CCS!Sakura were rather ambiguous.

In any case, I really enjoyed this OVA. I sincerely hope that this won't be the last of these OVAs to come! =)
