"Problem when they brought this show over as Cardcaptors is they felt free to hack up 2 or 3 eps to make one to suit their idea of what American kids would like & this one gives us an ep about Sakura's Great-Grandpa we didn't get in Cardcaptors which is so typical of the sweet tone of Cardcaptor Sakura & so far away from the action-oriented Cardcaptors. Of course there is action in CCS, but there is also a whole lot of sweet, endearing friend/family moments which really start kicking up in this end of the story because Yukito, loved by Sakura & Toya, is struggling--sleepy(as is Sakura from the power drain of the cards running off her magic rather than Clow's), can't eat enough(we've always seen he eats enough for 3 or 4 people), blackouts as Yueh transforms to help Sakura, transforming back in different locations leaving poor Yukito wondering how he got there. While Keroberos draws power from the Sun, Yueh reflects his master's magic (like the moon) & Sakura isn't strong enough yet. Li's realized it is Sakura he likes, but hasn't worked up the nerve to tell her--blushes a lot around her(cute). These 4 eps include the possessed bike & the Alice in Wonderland eps which made it in some form to Cardcaptors besides the Great-Grandpa ep, but of course this is far better. Yueh's the character which hooked me into anime & I've never thought much about Yukito(beyond how he has always provided a lot of clues to help Sakura before The Judgement ep where we met Yueh), but I felt sorry for him in this set of eps. Toya's worried--actually says he doesn't want Yukito to disappear so he obviously knows more than he's letting on."

"Sakura's Sheep Warning?!
It's bad enough that Sakura is tired from converting Clow cards, but, now they have her counting sheep.Sakura And The Panicy Bike
Panic makes people and cards do mad things. Sakura panics when she finds she can't sense the cards properly, so tries to convert many cards without a reason for using them.Sakura and the Calendar of Memories
Sakura get a calendar that belonged to her mother, and finds that it is her great grandfather's birthday. She also is told why she has been told so little about her mothers family, which makes her want to bridge the gap.Sakura, And Sakura from Wonderland
Book reports coming up and Sakura is reading a rather strange melée of Alice in Wonderland and through the looking glass. Sakura get's a little chance to find out stuff she needs to know when she gets pulled into the book she is reading, but, she has never been too hot on working things out."
