Card Captor Sakura
Tomoyo is an Author AvatarAside from acting like an older woman and not being one of Sakura's Those Two Guys, Tomoyo happens to have unlimited resources, tapes and designs Sakura's costumes, and manages to always tag along despite the complete inappropriateness of an unpowered muggle doing so. She fawns over how adorable Sakura is, yet cheers her on as pursues Li. These are all things a writer metaphorically does. Thus, Shipping Tomoyo with anyone is authorically incestuous.
Kaho is the reincarnation of Yuuko.It was at hinted above, in a cough, but derserves to be flatly stated. Yes Kaho has alot of magic of her own. That much we all are aware of. To put it bluntly Kaho has said: There are no coincidences only inevitabilities. That is the big vital clue. Except for the hair colour they look identical! Besides if Eriol is the reincarnation of Clow Reed although granted half the soul but Eriol got all the memories and magic, then it makes sense Kaho might be reincarnation of Yuuko. With the Timey-Wimey Ball that is Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle I see no reason why not.
Mei-ling was told by the Li family to pretend she made up being Syaoran's fiancee to ensure Syaoran and Sakura end up together.The Li family wants the Clow Cards, and it was becoming apparent that not only was Syaoran losing to Sakura, but the deck (so to speak) is also stacked in her favor. But... if Syaoran were to marry Sakura, then their children would likely inherit the Cards as well as be of the Li stock. And Sakura is less likely to rebel against the Li Family the way Clow did.
Likewise, the Li Family sent Syaoran back to Japan a few years after the series specifically so he could romance Sakura.Again, resulting in their children being in the Li Family and having the Cards. This is why they're giving him financial backing; an exchange student pass; etc. Syaoran is a good guy and he doesn't want to creep Sakura out with this (hence all he tells her was that "arrangements were made"); and he will treat her well.
Sakura is an ancient ancestor of Milfeulle and Apricot from Galaxy Angel.
Keroberos and Yue and Spinnel Sun and Ruby Moon were lovers/mates prior to the former's sealing inside the Book of Clow, which wiped their memories of the latter.Spinnel and Ruby were stated as being "counterparts" to Kero and Yue, and indeed, they both look very similar in both their forms to each other. Also, Spinnel and Ruby needed to hide their true forms from even Yue and Kero until the final test by Eriol, hinting that Kero and Yue had known them prior to then. Then there's the fact that, despite not recognizing him, Kero made fast friends with Spinnel, not really seeming to care that there was a blackish butterfly-winged version of him out there. Clearly they were meant to be an item, and like everything else about Clow Reed, Kero's and Yue's memories of their "partners" were wiped after their sealing. Clow Reed also wanted Yue to fall in love with Sakura via Yukito. He really sucked at playing matchmaker.
The reason Clow tied the Cards to Sakura's soul was in order to create a sympathetic resonance within the soul of the Sakura of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, thus creating the Wings.Ultimately, CCS Sakura isn't going to do anything with her Cards, and they'll probably die when she does; it's highly unlikely she'll do to a successor what Clow did to her. However, the stakes are much, much higher on the multi-dimensional field. The individual Feathers alone are shown to be far more powerful than the Cards.
Naoko had magic powers as well...Or at least, she was incredibly Genre Savvy. Don't remember Kerberos confirming that she hadn't any magic powers, and she created those things with that card's diary quite too well, perhaps she added a bit of her own magic, unconsciously. Also, it's an unwritten CLAMP rule that nobody that uses glasses can be just an ordinary person (Fuu, Watanuki, Satsuki from X, Yukito and friggin' Clow Reed are fine examples of it). So, her magical powers can be something small, or even God-like ones. (There was another rule for side characters gaining repentine spotlight, but it was a bit less strict than the megane one.)
The entire series was just Mitsuki's fantasy from Full Moon o SagashiteThere are lots of parallels between both series: cute, permanently happy girls with guardian angels doing magical things. Keroberos has a plush toy form, Takuto and Meroko have plush toy forms. Yuki can turn himself into a human, Takuto and Meroko can turn themselves into humans. The whole thing sounds like some fantasy made up by Mitsuki to pretend that she wasn't fated to die. Sakura's guardians even have rivals (Spinel Sun/ Ruby Moon), which are just more edgy versions of Kero and Yue. Izumi and Jonathan, anyone? Sakura's friends still have the generic personalities that Mitsuki's friends have, and Sakura loses a parent (Mitsuki loses both). Mitsuki probably felt left out while her shinigami were defying the laws of physics, so I'm guessing she just imagined that she had magical powers and that the shinigami would help her capture cards instead of capturing souls by themselves.
Tomoyo's mother was artificially inseminatedThis one is pretty straight forward: Tomoyo's father is neither seen nor mentioned and Tomoyo's mother could never love anyone other than her (female) cousin. She also has the wealth to easily get a top donor.
Tomoyo is in fact, a test tube baby who was partially cloned from DNA samples from her mother and Sakura'sRelated to the above. Since Tomoyo's mother could never love anyone other than Nadeshiko, she decided that if she couldn't have her, she might as well have her child in a sense.
Keroberos is an assumed name.He is not really Cerberus, Hound of the Underworld. Seriously, count the number of heads. Clow summoned Demon Prince Vapula via Ars Goetia. But even some atheists might raise their eyebrow at this, so he gave Vapula amnesia and gave him an "obvious" mythological name. People were too busy patting themselves on the back "Hurr! I know Greek Mythology!" to explore further.
Since Sakura turned the Nothing to the Hope...Sakura has effectively stopped the negation of the positive energies of the other fifty two cards. The world can no longer stay stable and will eventually lead to some mass apocalypse. Mayhap this will explored in Chronicles or xxxHolic.
The Hope is, in fact, a less depressing name for The Nothing.Because the Clow Cards haven't destroyed the universe any time in the next ten years or so, according to Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.
The real reason Eriol went back to England? To teach Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts.With his vast knowledge of both Eastern and Western magic being effectively Clow Reed and all, he'd certainly be well-qualified, and he does need something to do after he finishes with Sakura. And Hogwarts *always* needs new DADA teachers.
Tomoyo recorded Syaoran's confession to Sakura at the end of Episode 69.Reasons:
Eriol created the design of Ruby Moon and Spinel Sun as homage to Yuuko
Eriol and Sakura's Father merge again as the Emperor of Man
Sakura is actually the shojo analogue to Simon.Think about it. Sakura and Simon both "inherited" their powers/abilities from someone else (Sakura got her magic from Clow Reed; Simon got his Hot-Blooded nature and much of his Heroic Spirit from Kamina). Both of them are trained by their predecessors in the use of said powers/abilities (Clow trained Sakura by proxy of Kero and Yue; Kamina fought alongside Simon as Bash Brothers). Each is a Badass Adorable (Admittedly, Simon only really counts as adorable pre-timeskip). Furthermore, each one has pretty much limitless power/potential (Simon's Spiral Power is infinite by Word of God; Sakura is even more powerful than Clow Reed by the end of the series as a ten year old, there's NO WAY she won't grow stronger). Finally, each gets kind of screwed over in terms of interpersonal relationships - Simon: his first crush falls in love with his bro Kamina, who promptly dies in the next battle, one of his closest friends performs a Heroic Sacrifice near the end of the series, and his wife disintegrates immediately after exchanging their vows, and it's implied that he'll carry that pain until the end of time. Sakura: Well.... For the sake of brevity, just go and look at Card Captor Sakura. Afterthought: Each has Beware the Nice Ones as their M.O.
Clow Reed got his inspiration of creating Clow Cards from the undeadJust that he had to change the pictures of all the cards to avoid plagerism. Said re-edition results in the majority of the Clow Cards being in Bishounen Line.
Tomoyo's mother's company is Piffle Princess.Let's face it, the products Tomoyo brings out from her mother's company look very similar in terms of design to Piffle Princess products that appear in other CLAMP manga. While Icchan is responsible for Piffle Princess's Angelic Layer branch, there's nothing to suggest that he's in charge of the whole company. It would also make sense, considering that one Tomoyo in Tsubasa was president of Piffle Princess. It would also explain why in later series like Legal Drug Piffle Princess has branched out into clothing.
Syaoran is descended from a child of Yuuko and Clow.(Copy and pasting from XXXHO Li C since it's relevant. Spoilers are for that series.) Syaoran is stated in CCS to be 'Clow's Relative' and it's mostly been assumed that he's descended from a cousin of Clow's from the Li Clan. But we are never given a reason for Yuuko's death, although her youthful appearance suggests she was physically young (excluding any influence her magic had on her ageing), and it's never said that Clow never had children. What if Yuuko died giving birth and Clow's grief at this is what caused him to wish to see her once more? Clow could have left the child to be raised by his Li family, knowing that he would have to fix the problems said wish caused throughout space/time. This could also mean that Meilin is also directly descended from them which would explain some of her physical resemblance to Yuuko.
Meiling is the reincarnation of Yuuko, and Clow should never give relationship adviceMany people seem to say that Meiling has at least some resemblance to Yuuko in some ways physically. It IS possible that Clow had looked into the future and attempted to predict the outcome of certain relationships. It was shown in both the anime and manga of card captor sakura that at least in this term he was completely and utterly WRONG. In other words, Clow predicted not only that Yukito and Sakura were to fall in love based on the feelings Yue had had for Clow, but also that Meiling and Syaoran would end up together based upon the relationship we can assume Clow may have had with Yuuko in his life. However, because love isn't really something that can be controlled or tracked, he was wrong on both accounts and Sakura and Syaroan ended up together.
Syaoran and Sakura are Mulder and Scully, respectively.
