"These episodes are so addicting! If you love sweet innocent love then you'd die to see the relationship between Sakura and Shoaran! Everytime he sees her he begins to blush and can't speak straight! Too bad Sakura is so clueless to the obvious attraction Shoaran has for her! There is no fooling Tomoyo, though! Then, with Eriol in the picture it creates some conflict for kawii Shoaran! I advise all Cardcaptor Sakura Fans to buy this volume today! THe show rocks!"
Another great four episodes

"I love Cardcaptor Sakura, I can't emphasize that enough. Li grows more and more jealous when he notices Eriol growing closer to Sakura. Even more confusing is the fact that he can't understand why he has the same feelings for Yukito when suddenly Yue arrives and gives him a short brief lesson on love, of all people (^_^). Meanwhile, Eriol continues to test Sakura, forcing her to change the Clow Cards to Sakura Cards using her own magic. Unfortunately, this leaves her in a lethargy state and her guardian Yue to grow weaker and lose more and more of her powers. Want to find out more, buy Cardcaptor Sakura."
Interesting Characters, Boring Action

"In Cardcaptor Sakura: Vol. 13: Star Cards, we see Sakura getting more powerful and confident as she comes into being a sorceress of her own. Volume thirteen contains four episodes:
Ep. 48 "Sakura and the Awakened Key of Star" - It is raining nonstop. Mysteriously unable to transform her key to her power wand, Sakura is frustrated. Her new charming friend Eriol takes her mind off her troubles while Shaoran simmers with jealousy. Kero feels uneasy about a strange yet familiar presence. Sakura and her friends are trapped in water funnels and in danger of drowning as Sakura still cannot use her powers. This episode is the only one on this disc with great action.
Ep. 49 "Sakura and the Dangerous Piano" - Tomoyo the singing sensation is chased by a . . . piano. Snore!
Ep. 50 "Sakura and the Invisible Threads" - Sakura and her school friends want to sew teddy bears to give to their crushes. Eriol helps Sakura sew hers, and she excitedly prepares to give it to Yukito.
Ep. 51 "Sakura and the Huge Stuffed Animal" - Sakura goes to give her bear to Yukito, but it gets . . . big and stomps on stuff . . . yeah. (boring) At the end of the episode, we learn who the enemy is who has been causing trouble for our heroine.
The series is coming to a close. There are only two volumes left after this disc. The series has turned from Li and Sakura focusing on Yukito to Li falling in love with Sakura. For viewers like myself who enjoyed the Sakura-Yukito connection, this disc and the ones that follow might be anticlimactic."
Still Good Stuff

"This DVD starts the final run of this popular TV show.
In this disc, we see Sakura figure out the mystery of the non-working Clow cards as well as the emergence of a new villain. As usual, this show is just great. The characters are fleshed out and interesting and the show looks and sounds spectacular. It's a series that just does everything pretty good (art, story, humor, romance). My only complaint is that this new story arc feels rather forced as if the producers said "We're popular, let's drag it out a little bit!". Some of the battles that take place seem pretty derivative from the first 2/3 of the show. If you've watched the show so far, you'll continue to enjoy it with this DVD."
