Card Captor Sakura volume 12 – progress report
Yesterday: Continued up to page 142, finished chapters 46, 47 and 48.
Today: Read up to page 187, finished chapter 49 and volume 12. Thus, I have finished the (original) Card Captor Sakura series. (Clear Card Arc excluded)

Phew, I have made it to the end of the challenge and the end of the series I was reading in time.
Volume 12 was on almost all accounts wholesome which extended to the ending. (The latter was a bit too fast-paced for my liking, however: Shaolan being gone, returning literally 3? pages later – speaking from a physical book structure and manga panel sense – and saying ‘well, my business in Hong Kong is done, now I’ll just stay here in Japan’ was almost comical).
I’ve just remembered that I had a rant on Card Captor Sakura cooking up but I don’t have the mental energy to exhaust myself by ranting right now, so this one will have to wait for another day. Or rather I’ll let it slide because I’ll probably run into equally annoying things that I might rant about instead once I get to reading some other of my reading material in future reading challenges.
This marks the end of my second read-every-day-challenge. This time, I read through 10 manga volumes and managed to finish one of the series I had started reading in November 2022 (Card Captor Sakura). I think that my reading speed got a little bit faster again but I still struggle with understanding things properly.
I won’t join the next challenge, meaning this will be my last read-every-day-post for a while. I plan on joining this challenge during summer/early autumn again, though. I don’t think I’ll have it in me to read every single day from now on without relying on this challenge, but I’ll try reading regularly (a few times a week) to keep some of my immersion up.
I hope that everyone who joined this winter challenge had a good time with some satisfactory results – again, regardless if you’ve never done this challenge before or if you’re a regular and regardless if you read every single day or every few days. Hopefully, I’ll see some of you again when I get back to this challenge. Until then, happy reading!
Btw, I may or may not be lurking in the next reading challenge thread(s) nodding in satisfaction over all the progress the participants will make.
