Like they say, everything's better with penguins. =D

I love how the adorable fights in this anime are much more clever than the average shonen duel. XD

I'm really curious how Tomoya is video taping all this though, as Kero pointed out at the end there. She's somehow running alongside the water creature during all this. o_o

You have to remember that this was all a test for sakura, which means that mostly all of the cards wont activate neither show themselves without sakura around. So in other words the cards want to harm her to test if she is the new master of the cards.

Great episode, for some reason i prefer sakura in cute dresses over muscled men kicking ass and using strange magic
I think i saw a cookie monster!



No wait, its just death.

I remember this used to be one of my favorite episodes in this show even if it is only the 3rd. I totally love the way Sakura captured this card and I also really like Watery.

Well, whatever, it just feels so nice to rewatch this after so much time...

I liked it more than I thought I would. I tend not to be a fan of those kinds of love stories, but it was well done in this episode. I disliked that she basically didn't use any cards to capture watery. I mean, she used wind a little, but not that much. I want to see what shadow can do...

But I liked it a lot!

This. I usually am not swayed by cuteness....but Sakura is probably the most adorable character I've seen. I think it's the cute as fuck facial expressions she makes.

Yes.

How could you want to buy her ONLY ONE stuffed animal? Her room needs to be flooded with them.

Well because Penguins are her favorite.

However a hundred stuffed penguins...you're right a hundred stuffed penguins it is.

I had to laugh when she put a penguin's life above a human's life.

Sakura's smart. If you can't capture a card in it's current state, change it. Amazing how she already has 2/4 basic cards, Windy and Water.

Tomoyo needs some love as well.I liked how she just joined in and began stalking Sakura lol

Keberos trolling that kid xD

Another top quality episode. Sakura's outfit in this episode reminded me a lot of Nights into Dreams on the Sega Saturn. God damn that was a hell of a game, it's got the same 90's feel that this show has come to think of it.

A lot of people rip on stuff like this for being formulaic and following "monster of the week" plots, but idk I love familiarity so that's not a problem for me. Plus the scenes with Sakura and Yukita were pretty cute, not gonna lie.

Oddball thought of the day: If they had a little more personality, I'd ship Windy and Watery. I guess that's basically like device shipping..?

Tomoyo pervs out again, and I think even harder this time, unless she's got a zettai-ryōki fetish. And the date doesn't worry her coz she knows Yuki's too much older than Sakura to be a threat. XD Or she'll take both of them~

I keep waiting for Kerberos to stop being useless in battle. DO SOMETHING!

I'm not gonna make a joke about Sakura getting wood. I'm not.

Yukio. I know that a lot of fangirls ship him and Touya. I have nothing against anyone being bi/gay. I like yukio. He's a pretty male. However I don't like penguins. They're scary. :(

I just noticed a while ago that the Cardcaptor Sakura manga is by CLAMP, well I think that explains why Touya and Yukito look so tall, as well as why the characters are constantly changing clothing.

I remember this episode really well. I love how Sakura captures WATERY.
Also, her outfit reminds me of the Jack Frost mascot.

I can't remember the last time I went to an aquarium, I really should go around sometime in the near future, I do like marine wildlife.

Pretty funny watching Sakura throughout this episode due to her love for Yukito

Nice thinking there leading it into a freezer, that stopped it in no time.

I love when at the end of the episode, Cerbero points to the dress worn by Sakura. Interestingly, the plot has already made a new leap for card capture. Although not too difficult to understand, it was great to see Sakura rush the brain to find a solution against the Water Spirit card. The part devoted to the action was interesting, albeit not overwhelming.

What a savage Yukito is, taking his best friend's little sister on a date, xD just kidding he probably sees her as a young sister too.

The episode was awesome. Sakura used her brains and defeated WATERY. Thank god WINDY didn't escape first.

Cardcaptor Sakura is really great. Even Sakura's waterproof costume serves a point. Kero-chan also leaves a lampshade hanging on the ridiculous camerawork in the show. I also figured out how to capture WATERY same time as Sakura did. I think these kind of heroes, where you figure out everything at the same time they do, is pretty interesting.

Thankfully, all the CLOW cards are in the same city, for now. I am hoping to see when Sakura will use the SHADOW card and also when 2 cards become better together.

Sakura using the FLY card was awesome. Also WINDY was kinda good.

Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.


I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was bound to lead me to a slow death.

Yukito's twice her size so it's pretty weird seeing them on a "date" even if there's nothing wrong about that lol Sakura fawning over him in her room was adorable as hell though~

I didn't think about how to capture Watery until my lady friend spoiled me lel Attempting to drown both a human and a penguin was surprisingly dark for this show just like how it tried to drown Sakura too x_x

I agree with everyone here, Sakura is way too cute, I don't know how you guys watch this without dying from cuteness.

Cool episode. I like how each fight is very different from the others and they have to come up with new things to deal with the cards. Really good stuff.

Does anyone else think it's creepy how a 4th grader is attracted (love? admiration?) towards a 11th grader?
She is 10, he is 17....

And she really calls it a "date". And her best friend doesn't mind it either. I wonder what the brother thinks about this. Well, the expressions on his face do show that he seems to know what his sisters intentions are. Disturbing.


I just hope Yukito will never return her "feelings", because that would make this really creepy.

Was something like this common in the Japan of the 90s? The mangaka must have had some form of inspiration to come up with something like this. And nobody stopped them..


Oh, and it looks like nobody seems to notice or care that there is a flying cuddly toy next to Tomoyo.

LOL @ Tomoya totally not spying on Sakura... Her camera seems to have infinite tape ^_^.
Hm.. isn't that guy a little bit too old for her? Apparenly in shoujo age difference is not a problem, as long as the guy is the older one. It looks like I should go for highschool girls now (I'm 33).

I hope that Yukito actually treats Sakura as "just a kid" and only trying to be nice to the sister of his friend.

Finally got round to watching this show and I'm surprised how good the animation is. One thing annoyed me with this episode though - the huge recap halfway through... but having noticed the difference in title from the dub to the sub I dug around for a sub and watched it.
Hang on, am I watching the same episode? Wow, the dubbed version was really butchered - they obviously decided to remove the 'crush on an older guy' sub-plot and were left with so little episode they had to fill it with recap!
Also there was no 'you can only combine 2 cards' restriction... or the need to use multiple cards to capture Watery.
Really changes the story and the Japanese version has far more impact.
I'll definitely be hunting out sub versions for the rest - it's a real shame I can't actually buy it! (Ignoring Asian Government sanctioned *cough-pirate-cough* copies that is).
