hey, even though cardcaptor sakura is classed as a shoujo, everyone seems to have forgotten that romance has never been and will never be the main main focus of the manga. so if a new character shows up, it’s most likely not to get in the way of the main pairing. (please trust clamp a little. they dedicated an entire dimensional travelling manga to syaosaku, they’re not gonna go so low that they cut these two off with a silly love triangle. and ohkawa can write better twists than that)
i love syaosaku as much as the next person, but i really don’t understand why everyone has to connect the new girl to their relationship as soon as she appears. there’s a very clear connection between akiho and the cloaked figure, as well as the possibility that she’s sakura’s twin destiny (like kurogane and fai, or the two kamuis of x - minus the romantic implications of course), why aren’t we talking about that instead?
their relationship isn’t the only thing there is about sakura and syaoran, and it’s most certainly not the only thing there is about the manga, albeit it’s very important. this might sound rude to syaosaku fans, but it’s just the truth. the manga is more than just about the main pairing, and not everything has to be related to their relationship. their relationship will be fine, nothing will get in the way of it. please don’t reduce akiho to a simple romantic plot device.
