As the second season of this popular series continues, the pace of the storytelling accelerates. When she subdues the Dream Card, Sakura realizes that the woman in her recurring dream is her teacher, Ms. Mizuki--whom Ker... more »o and Shaoran Li insist possesses powerful magic. In episodes 41 and 42, Sakura and Shaoran are incongruously cast as the Prince and Princess (respectively) in their class production of Sleeping Beauty. During the performance, Sakura captures the Light and Dark Cards and learns the reassuring mantra "I will definitely be alright." Ms. Mizuki observes everything and cryptically assures Shaoran, "It will happen soon." Shaoran's pesky cousin Meilin returns to Hong Kong, leaving the partnership between Sakura and Shaoran to develop without interference. Amid all these story points, the filmmakers manage to find time for Kero's special brand of comedy. (Rated 13 Up, but appropriate for children 3 to 4 years younger) --Charles Solomon« less
"In this 11th volume of Cardcaptor Sakura, the Clow Saga of the show is drawing to a close with 4 great episodes. The Disc feature her pinkish-black outfit from Ep. 43 against a yellow background. Features Pioneer's standard Limited Edition postcard and probably (though not sure at the moment) contains the 2nd creditless ending. Remember, don't read if you don't want spoilers!*Sakura and Sakura from the dream - Sakura and the others' outing is cut short by the dream card. Tomoyo begins seeing multiple Sakuras while Sakura confronts the form of herself that she has been seeing in her dreams. What does it have to say? Rather what shocking revelations does the Dream Card reveal to Shoaran?*Sakura, Shaoran, and a sea of sand - The class decides to perform the play of Sleeping Beauty. Everyone randomly gets a role with Li and Sakura as the leads....in opposite gender roles! Li is embarrased as he and Sakura practice lines one day before school, but the magical moment is halted by a sand storm!*Sakura and the Pitch-dark Litery fest - It's finally the night of the play and everything goes accroding to plan (with the exception of Shaoran's bad acting) until every thing goes black. Sakura must seal the mystery card before it engulfs even herself.*Meilin gets a phone call from her mother ordering her to return home. Shaoran later upsets her and ends up spending the night at Sakura's house. Their childhood and the nature of the Meilins feelings are revealed as she and Sakura become closer. Something tthen begins cloning everything and everyone in town and must be sstopped, but in a bizzare way. Will Meilin and Shaoran make-up? Better yet, who can stop this card?One more disc before the Final Judgement and the end of season 2. Until November, Release!"
Another exceptional DVD!!!

"Highly entertaining, cute, funny, and action packed is just a few words I would use to describe the 4 episodes in this DVD.Episode 40 - Meiling, Sakura, Tomoyo, and Li decide to spend some time together shopping, with Li finding it harder and harder to hide his feelings for Sakura. The Dream Card shows up and shows her a glimpse of the near future and her upcoming confrontation against "The Judge."Episode 41 - Sakura and Li prepare to rehearse for their class play, "Sleeping Beauty" when the Sand Card interrupts and almost swallows them into the ground.Episode 42 - The day of the play and everyone dresses up for their parts, Sakura playing the part of the handsome prince and Li as the sleeping princess?!? All goes well, except that Li gets nervous on stage and goes slightly overboard when playing his part. The Dark and Light Cards appear and warn Sakura of the coming of the Judge, Yue. Who is he and should Sakura be concerned, YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!Episode 43 - Meiling receives a call from her mother to return home. We see a glimpse of her past with Li and why she fell in love with him. Sakura and Meiling decide to have a slumber party and Sakura convinces her that she is important to Li's goal to capture the Clow Cards. Her advice is put to the test when the Twin Card appears and it takes Li and Meiling Martial Arts ability to stop it."

"I bought this DVD at a local movie store. I was torn between this one and the episodes when Eriol first comes in. I wasn't sure if I made the right choice by getting this one. Now I know I did!The DVD first starts out with Sakura, Syaoran, Tomoyo and Meilin in the city, shopping. The dream card appears and shows all but Meiling a daydream. Tomoyo has a dream of Sakura wearing her costumes. Syaoran has a dream of himm giving away the cards to Sakura! Sakura has a dream about the dream she has been having, the Sakura in her dream gives her a strange message "It will definately be all right" which offsets Sakura a bit.Then the movie continues with The casting of the class play of "Sleeping Beauty" with Sakura cast as the Prince and Syaoran as the Princess. But as they were practicing the sand card attacks!Then they all perform the play. It is going well (even though Syaoran overdoes his part a bit). That is untill the Dark card attacks. But with the help of the Light card which was in Sakuras heart, Sakura saves everyone and the play.Finally, Meilin is baking a cake when she gets a call from her mother that she must go home! Sakura invites Meilin over and we find out about Meilin and Syaoran's past. Twin card attacks and Meiling and Syaoran use their martial arts skills to defeat it. Syaoran tells Meilin that she isn't a nusicance and doesn't get in the way. She leaves happy.This is by far better than the dub version. I absoulutly love the music! I love the opening theme and I love the song that plays when Sakura calls her wand! This is definately a must see!"

"The end is coming. Almost all of the cards have been captured and the mood starts to shift. While Sakura and company face off new challenges and solve old mysteries, Kero-chan seems to be a bit tense about something. He keeps staring at the moon and saying "Yue." Something is coming soon.But Sakura is also being warned. The self from the dream she kept on having all the time has her own secrets to reveal. It appears that the cards are trying to warn Sakura of an upcoming danger. The Dream card shares some secrets while Light and Dark say "Yue will make the final decision. Yue is right by your side."The cuteness turns serious as Sakura tries to figure all of this out. But there's plenty of cuteness left when she has to play a prince in the school play, Sleeping Beauty - especially when Shaoran's the princess! But their rehersal gets interupted by the Sand card!But now, loose ends have to be tied as Sakura, Shaoran, and Meiling face personal problems. Meiling has to leave and isn't happy. When she gets mad at Shaoran, perhaps it takes Sakura and a dangerous Clow Card to put an end to an arguement.This is the prelude to the end of the begining. In other words, something is coming soon. I especially love the theme song here! It fits sooo well. "I'm sure that something, something, somewhere is waiting for the day that we shall meet," fits so well because there is something waiting. But like the song says, "It's all right!"Zettai Daijobu Dayo, Sakura-chan! Gambatte!"

"And the road goes ever on...(Got this one as a Christmas present, but whatever works!)This round begins with a non-dubbed episode wherein the four center kids, Tomoyo, Shaoron, Meilin, and Sakura, go out for the day, and are visited by the Dream card, that shows all but Meilin some very interesting daydreams!Second, the roles for the class play in the school arts festival are doled out, and while Sakura and Shaoron are rehearsing together, they get ambushed by the Sand card. Also undubbed.In the third episode, yet another undubbed(Whoo-Hoo!), two of the most powerful cards yet arrive in the middle of the aforementioned school play, which, by the by, is Sleeping Beauty - with Sakura as the Prince, and Shaoron as the cute-as-a-button Princess!(With costumes designed and made by Tomoyo-Chan, of course! And I thought the gender-swapped Cinderella done by Toya's school was a riot!) Just remember Sakura, Dark cannot survive without Light!(And visa-versa.)Finally, we close out on an episode that did make the dub cut, and for good reason! In the wake of the Twin card's arrival, Meilin's mom calls and tells her in no uncertain terms that she's coming home! The subtitled is definately worth the trip for the opening scene wherein Meilin gets said call, and the flashbacks that reveal the origin of her and Shaoron's relationship and engagement(okay, so I was wrong, it wasn't by parental arrangement. What do you want, the dub chopped that scene!).Next, the Earth Card, Keroberos, Yue, and...the Final Judgment! Bring...it...on!Scoprinac"
