The Cardcaptor’s Brother’s Boyfriend
I have so much to say about these two. They were probably the first gay couple I saw be treated like they were normal and safe and healthy in media, and it definitely helped me feel safer about my own queerness as a kid. Because Cardcaptor Sakura is read by very young kids, it may be the first time a lot of kids see queer characters being treated as completely normal and sweet, and that was so intentional on the part of CLAMP. Having a crush on your big sibling’s SO is a very relatable experience no matter which genders are involved, and I love how sweetly that was dealt with in CCS. Would that all kids’ first crushes be as wonderful as Yukito.
Thanks, boys, for being happy. In every CLAMP dimension.
