"Pioneer has done another wonderful job with their current CCS release of DVD 6: Friends and Family. In yet another cute pink case, we have another four great episodes. Included:Episode 21: Sakura's Long Marathon
The group (sans Tomoyo who has a sprained ankle) are participating in a marathon race. We have some great Meilin scenes as she tries to train for the race so her and Shaoran can have a "One two finish!". But during the race, the Loop card causes havoc as the race never seems to end. But all is well in the end. :)Episode 22: Sakura and her Kind Father
I'm thrilled that they are really showing some more of Sakura and her family; something you see NONE of in the dub on WB. Anyways. This episode is my favorite of the DVD as we see the relationship between Fujitaka (Sakura and Toya's father) and the two children. Their dad is working on a presentation for the college, but the Sleep card is making everyone fall asleep! Some acidents happen, but Fujitaka cannot be mad at Sakura. It's a great, thoughtful episode that I believe parents should watch. :)Episode 23: Sakura, Tomoyo, and a Wonderful Song
Something's haunting the Tomoeda(sp?) Elementary School music room. But the song's very familiar. The group rushes about the school looking for the mysterious singer, who Yuki says says he has heard has a beautiful voice and would like to hear it himself, so Sakura goes (despite her fears about a possible ghost) to record the song for him. The episode has some very cute Kero/Meilin exchanges that I won't forget. The episode ends in a beautiful duo between Tomoyo and the song card.Episode 24: Sakura's Little Adventure
After Sakura talks about wanting to live in a big house, she gets her wish when the Little card makes her small. After almost getting eaten by a cat and getting into bad situations, the card is captured. Not my favorite episode, but still worth watching.Overall, this is a great release! I can't wait for Four and Seven (both on preorder!) to come out."
Another great addition to the Sakura Series

"Friends and Family has finally been released. Pioneer has driven fans insane with releases bi-monthly rather every month.With that aside, this a great title as the sixth volume in Cardcaptor Sakura (5th release because of 4th on delay until January) The Sound quality is great and picture has beautiful bright colors. The box has the adorable Sakura on it with an insert showing Tomoyo, Sakura, Kero, and Shoaran singing in choir. At least Shaoran is trying, that is! There is also another postcard on the inside as a bonus.The episodes include:
*Sakura against the loop card, which creates a never ending marathon race for her, Shaoran, and Meilin. Will they ever reach the finish line??
*The sleep card has it in for Sakura's father, a college professor. Everyone has fallen into a deep sleep. Can she wake everyone up? This adventure creates a big mess!
*Mysterious sounds come from the music room at night! Every one thinks it's a ghost, but it sounds like Tomoyo? It's actually the song card, and it won't show itself until the Tomoyo can sing her song correctly. Can she do it?
*Sakura wants to live in a mansion, but this is ridiculous! In a shocking instant, the little card turns sakura into a pint-sized school girl. Will she survive from the terrors that lurk in her new surroundings? She can't even hold her key to turn little back into a card.It's a great title, be sure to get it!
Remember this only is in Japanese with English subtitles!"

"And they do it again! This time out, we get four full episodes that have yet to make the dub! (Though why is beyond me.) First up, the kids, save for Tomoyo-Chan who's sprained her ankle, are running a 2 1/2 km marathon around town! Easy, right? Well, Meilin has a little trouble understanding the difference between spints and marathons, and just as she, Sakura, and Li are holding the lead, they get bushwacked by the Loop card! (Curses! Foiled again!) Next up, Sakura's father is holding a big lecture at the College in only one week, and has to get a lot of work done before hand! Nothing overly difficult, until the campus is invaded by the Tinkerbell-like Sleep card! (Nappy time! *DING* Zzzzzzz...) Third up for perusal, a ghost seems to have invaded the school's music room! Sakura would just as soon not go near, until Yukito says he'd like to hear the ghost's voice, which is reputed for singing a very lovely song! (Guess which card!) And finally, we close with Tomoyo coming to visit Sakura at her house, and double checking her measurement's for future battle costumes! Sakura's trying on of the "Alice In Wonderland" like outfit is ironically timed...because the Little card is about to bring her down to size, literally! Well, that's all for now, and I'll see you on the next discs, so Happy New Years, and Merry Christmas!"
Things get very interesting when you are small...

"Sakura is faced with challenges affecting her and people around her in this set of episodes. First we have the marathon race. With the loop card around this really is going to be a marathon race. Next in line is the sleep card, which beocmes a very tiring experience, particularly for Sakura's father. Character development happens in this episode - even heroines have humility (and there isn't a clow card for every problem either). The song card gives Tomoyo-chan lots of singing practice and she even gets to do a duet with her own voice! Last but not least, Sakura ends up really small from the (you guessed it) the Little card. It wouldn't be so bad provided she could use her sealing wand. Sakura struggles to safety as Tomoyo-chan and Kero-chan race to discover what's going on before something terrible happens to Sakura."
The Best DVD of Cardcaptor Sakura!

"In the 6th DVD Sakura Kinomoto faces off with 4 more Clow Cards. First comes to Loop card and boy did it make the gang go around in circles. Next is a tuoching moment between father and his children. The Sleep card makes it's entrance and puts everyone to sleep! Sakura captured it but something bad happened! Next comes to Song Card. It's beautiful voice echos out from the Music room and people say a ghost sings in there. The final episode on this video is when the little card makes Sakura tiny! She goes through a ton of challenges to get the Little card. It really is a tiny world. You have got to have this DVD!!!"
