Johnny Yong Bosch,
All the cards have been captured and transformed, with Sakura and friends settling back into their normal lives. Unfortunately, Syaoran has returned home to Hong Kong without Sakura ever confessing how she felt about him. She gets another chance when he returns to Japan on vacation, but their reunion is interrupted by the reappearance of the Hope Card. Created by Clow Reed long ago to provide a balance to the energy of the other Clow Cards, it is more powerful than anything the Card Captor has ever faced. To capture it, Sakura may have to give up her most precious feeling. Written by
A worthy end to a beloved series that keeps the camera on its characters
This is an awesome film, and a worthy and fitting end to an anime (based on a manga) beloved by many.
When the television series ended, it left its audiences a nifty little cliffhanger, and set things up well for this film while still managing to tie things up some. I won't lie to you. This movie is chiefly about the love story between Sakura and Syaoran.
But what makes this film such a bona fide success is that while it keeps the focus on the main characters, it isn't afraid to give minor characters their due. For example, Kero-chan steals a lot of the scenes and fits into the story perfectly as comedy relief without seeming tacked on in the least.
Director Morio Asaka and screen-writer Nanase Okawa know their characters. The dialogue never sells out or ceases to be fresh. Everyone is perfectly in character, and while this leads to a certain degree of predictability, it also brings smiles to the faces of fans who understand how much respect the material brings to their characters.
And as I said in my review for the first movie, there is something for every anime fan here. While those new to CCS fandom will probably be wary of this film being nothing but tying up loose ends left by the end of the 70-episode television series, they'd only be half right. While it ties up a lot of loose ends, it manages to hold its own as a film and capture the viewer's attention.
For fans who haven't seen this or want to enjoy it in the best possible way, I suggest shelling in the extra cash to buy the Special Edition CCS Movie 2: The Sealed Card DVD. Not only does it come with a see-through plastic flat thingy (I don't know what it's called!), inside the case you'll find "Tomoyo's Photo Album", a small booklet containing select CLAMP art from this movie. Also, you have the option to listen to the movie in English (tolerable) or with the original Japanese voices with subtitles (my choice).
But what makes this DVD worth the price of admission is the hidden Kero-chan Video Extra (search for it in the Extras Menu).
To fans, this movie is the Holy Grail. Every scene is not only necessary, but perfectly tuned to fit the rest of the film. While many fans will complain that the movie ends quickly, well, that's what fan fiction is for. ^_^
