"Many people are wondering why this volume (#4) is being released after volumes #5 and #6. Well, there's a reason: Cardcaptor Sakura is far ahead of American TV in the way it addresses gender identify. Previous volumes have referenced the same-sex relationship of Touya and Yukito, but the second episode in this volume addresses this issue far more directly than any American-made animated series. This episode (which also includes a hilarious rendition of "Cinderella" in drag) honestly and movingly "outs" their relationship in a way that will make the Jerry Falwells of this country want to fight the Pacific Conflict all over again. The other 3 episodes are also classics in this series, particularly the tender "Rainbow of Memories." Essential for anime fans and highly recommended for parents who want their kids to grow up in the real world, not the pre-1960 world of most American cartoons."

"As January 15 comes closer and closer, fans of this charming and wonderful story cheer with delight. The fourth volume is being released after months of delay. The package features a beautiful blue cover with Sakura in her wizard-like outfit that she wears for about five minutes in episode 14.As I write this, I've only seen 3 of the four episodes on the DVD. They are great, and the fourth episode is very similar to the story told in the manga (which I've read)*Sakura goes to the zoo with her classmates to do a report. Did you hear something coming from her bag? Anyway, But something is doing unimaginable things by flipping over the emperor penguin slide and trashing animal cages. Will Sakura win in an impossible game of tug of war?*Touya's school festival is coming up but Sakura wasn't invited? She finds out why while watching a unique version of Cinderella with gender issues and a can of mackeral to boot. Things get even more out of hand when a mysterious card endangers Touya!*Sakura and Kero get into a huge fight! Who's to blame? No one really, but Kero learns the consequences of alcohol abuse when the story of a little girl falls into play. Will he find his way home? Will Sakura forgive him? Why the heck is everything floating in the air?*Summer vacation starts off with a relaxing trip to a beach house. There, Sakura meets an old man who claims she looks like his grand-daughter. Touching stories are revealed about the past with a rainbow that'll melt your heart. No clows cards will ruin the day this time!Remember that this release is only available in Japanese with English subtitles. Also with the release of this title, the standard postcard is included, but Pioneer has promised us an extra special bonus for the delay. The first 10,000 copies come with a cute mini pencil board, but it is only available for a limited time only! ... Grab your copy now!"

"This dvd came VERY late, leaving a lot of fans (who, like me, can't understand Japanese T-T) moaning. It's finally out! In here, Sakura catches:
*Power: In Tomeda's Penguin Park and zoo, something is wreaking cages, overturning slides and creating a LOT of havoc. Sakura has to ge this card- but does that mean she has to win a tug-of-war match with a CLOW CARD?*
*Mist: Sakura recieves a coupon for free food in her bro's festival- from Yukito. She goes, and sees a 'twisted' (O_o) version of Cinderella. But things become nasty when a acid green mist threatens both the play- and Touya! (P.S. Touya gets a date invitation)*
*Float: After a big fight, Kero eats some alchohol chocolates, then runs away. He is found by a lonely girl with no one to play with since her father dies. Float comes into play, and the little girl is convinced she can ge see her father in heaven. But will Sakura take Kero away from her?*
*None: A touching episode...won't say more than it's a summer vacation trip and that Sakura meets family and friends, while innocently breaking family grudges (on her mom's side- against her dad).*..."

"And so at last, Volume FOUR appears! I've been waiting for this one. First up, an episode that made the dub, the capture of the Power card at the local Zoo. Pretty much everything that was in the dub was what was in the Japanese folks! Second, one the dub missed, and it's hysterical! Sakura, Li, and Tomoyo-Chan go to Toya-Kun and Yukito-Kun's high school for a school festival. The true Hysteria comes when they go to see Toya and Yukito in a play, with all the roles gender-swapped! The girls are doing all the guys' parts, and the guys are doing all the girls' parts! And Toya's the lead! Did I mention it was "Cinderella"? I just about _died_ when Yukito did his part! Sadly, the play is left unfinished due to the machinations of the first lethally dangerous card, the Mist card. You'll have to watch it to find out! Third up, another un-dubbed episode! We begin with the quick and clean capture of the Storm card(Li get's this one.), and afterward Sakura and Kero have a _big_ fight, leading Kero to raid a carton of alcohol spiked chocolates!(Frankly, the beer bottle shape of the candies should have been a clue!) When Kero wakes up from his little binge, he's in the room of a five to six year old little girl named Akane(No, not Akane Tendo, this girl's an only child and living in an aparment with her mother, not her father!) who found him sleeping on an old couch that was on the curb waiting for the trashmen. Fortunately she thinks he's a kitty, okay a flying kitty, but a kitty. This eventually leads us to the Float card, which makes little Akane's wish to fly come true. The only problem, it just floats, it has no directional control...unless you count...the wind... Finally, we have yet another ep. not in the dub version...that has no card capturing at all! It's summertime, and the Kinomoto's, plus Yukito, go out to a country house for the weekend, where Sakura meets a nice old man living just down the street in a really pretty house. Don't be alarmed by the seemingly negligence of Sakura's father...there's a very special secret about the old man that he already knows. A soft and tender ep. I recommend it! At last, the gap is filled. Next up...The First Movie! See you then!!Scorpinac"
