It’s 2015 and we can’t send our cars in for a hover conversion… Color me disappointed!
It’s the grand and glorious revival of the acquisitions posts! I haven’t done one of these in ages and I really do want to get these back up and running. If anything, it will be an easy way to keep my blog afloat in these troubled waters of other commitments. Despite me not posting them, I have been taking pictures and diligently taking records of all the stuff I’ve been purchasing for the past year and a half (more or less) and I do hope to put them all into one ginormous loot post sometime in the very near future.
It is definitely a monumental milestone in my collecting life as I finally attain the last piece necessary to complete my Cardcaptor Sakura collection, the DX Star Power Set featuing Sakura’s Star Wand.
This also means that this is the final installment of our Cardcaptor Sakura series of reviews. I really do hope that you’ve enjoyed this series of reviews and I also hope that they have helped fellow Cardcaptor Sakura fans.
Taking a course on Contemporary Japanese Popular Culture this past semester, I was fortunate to find myself in the company of many other like-minded people who shared my passion for Japanese Animation and the preservation of its originality. For our class research paper, we decided to do it on the Americanisation of Anime, using the series that I and my group mates adore, Cardcaptor Sakura, as a case study. Since term is now over, and after consulting with them, it is my pleasure to bring you our paper in it’s unadulterated form.
Do note that this is somewhat different from the other articles that you have read on this blog due to the nature of it being an academic paper. Not to mention, do be prepared for a ton of text as I don’t think I’ll be putting any pictures in this article beyond this point. However, if you are a fan of Cardcaptor Sakura or Anime and just want to know what went on/goes on behind the scenes, I do believe it’s worth a read. Do also note that the paper will be in standard British English.
The paper is written by myself, Jovi, Wei Lun and Anmari.
Without further ado:
The final Sakura Card set released by Bandai is based on the Second Cardcaptor Sakura Movie – Sakura and the Sealed Card. While not as extravagant as the sets before it, it still comes with enough to make it a decent release in its own right.
