Thank you, CLAMP, for teaching me how to love... again.

You may remember that recently I watched the pile of catgirl droppings known as Dokuro-chan. This experience, which left me wanting to claw my eyes out and left my eyes begging to be clawed out, scarred my anime-lovin' soul, leaving it a small, flinty cinder.

Then my friend The Librarian came over for Anime Night. After a pleasant hour of dinner 'n' conversation, we decided to pop open the 19-disc MegaStack of CardCaptor Sakura, and watched the first five episodes.

My soul is restored. I'll talk more about it down the line, after I've seen more than 1/14th of the series (70 episodes!), but so far there's been absolutely nothing about the show I can complain about... even the unintentional comedy is pure gold (though that might just be because of the shared sense of humor The Librarian and I have:

"...and they all die."
"The End."

You have NO idea how funny that exchange can be when it's well-timed, though that's hardly what I'm talking about when I say 'unintentional comedy'. I'm talking more about things like Tomoyo filming upskirt shots on Sakura as they're crawling through the Kinomoto house, though knowing CLAMP they knew exactly what they were doing).

Anyway... Boooooo, Dokuro-chan.

Hooooooray, Cardcaptor Sakura!!!

1 You think it's good now, just wait until Shaoran shows up. Arguably this series is about him as much as it's about Sakura, and to me he's actually a more interesting character.
