Anime Night Is BACK!

A half-night, actually. We only got two episodes of CardCaptor Sakura in, due to the weather. It's very, very cold here at The Pond, and at the brother of The Librarian's signifigant other's house, the pipes froze solid, and he has to spend the night at their place. So, she left early (this was something of a surprise to her).

ANYway, we caught two episodes, ep36 ("Sakura and the Snowy New School Term") and ep37 ("Sakura and Tomoyo's Lost Voice"). Both were... interesting. First, there's a new OP and ED, both of which, frankly, stink on ice.

The first episode has Sakura's town under assault by The Snow card, like six or seven feet of snow. Why? Um... no real reason we could tell. BUT The Snow card managed to make Sakura lose a watch that Yukito just gave her ("So you're in 5th grade now..."), which pissed Sakura OFF. Which brought out the greatest quote of the show: "Girls are kinda scary when they're mad."

In the second one, another Clow Card, The Voice, takes a liking to Tomoyo's singing, and steals her voice completely. Meanwhile, Sakura blames herself, and Li Showron is starting to show his... um... feelings towards Sakura. Eventually all is well.

Good stuff, with just enough humor to take some of the angsty edge off the way the show has been heading recently. Plus we discover that you could stack books on Tomoyo's nose.
You could stab someone with that thing!
Good times, good times.

1 Well, if not on the chest, then at least somewhere.

2 I haven't the faintest idea what you're talking about, Pete. Seriously. I'm sorry.

3 Heh. I remember Vision of Escaflowne being made fun of for having ski-ramp noses back with it first filtered into the U.S. (Heck, by me even). But at least they had a bottom of the nose drawn out.

As for this? This isn't a nose. This is a snout.

4 I meant your comment about stacking books.
