I’m just over halfway through watching the Clear Card arc of Cardcaptor Sakura, and it’s just as good as the original series, despite the sudden time shift of “present day” being the late 1990s originally, and now it’s suddenly the late 2010s with all of the technology advances that go along with it, even though only one year of series time has passed. Clearly, one of Sakura’s cards must have created a wormhole for them to suddenly advance more than fifteen years. But I digress.
It’s been a while since I watched a CLAMP series, and doing so has reminded me that if I am looking for inspiration for cute, frilly outfits for my own artistic experiments, I need look no further than the works of CLAMP. Often, their stories seem more like vehicles for their clothing designs. And I am totally okay with that.
