Kero-chan's eyes are small so you might not have seen what happened!

How dey small! Dey see real good!

Ah

Wrong one

Good morning!

Good morning Sakura-san

From today on you'll be wearing the summer uniform huh

Page 5/29

That's right

Lately it's been hot so I'm happy

The summer uniform looks good on you

By the time I woke up, he had already left for his part-time job

I see

Is Big brother...

You wanted Touya-kun to see you in this uniform too huh

Page 6/29

Big brother would immediately say something like it doesn't suit a monster or something like that

You're looking forward to seeing all your friends in their summer uniforms right

Yup!

What nice weather

It'd be nice if everyone could eat lunch outside today

Page 7/29

Ah!

Good morning Syaoran-kun!

*LONG stare*

Good morning

Is...Is something wrong?

The summer uniform looks very good on you

Page 8/29

It...It looks um...

looks good on Sakura too

Please pay me no attention

Hoeeee!!

Page 9/29

I can record Sakura-chan's magnificent cuteness today as well

I get the feeling that you've been doing that from before we started talking

The feeling that it was from before...?

Page 10/29

That's because you two are always cute and wonderful together

I haven't a clue what this says.

What's wrong?

N-nothing

Nothing's wrong

Page 11/29

Come to think of it, where is Kero-chan?

He woke up once but then

He promptly fell back to sleep

I tried to wake him several times but

He just kept sleeping so I left him at home

*fast asleep*

Page 12/29

*fast asleep*

*poke*

Hmm

Ah, good morning Touya

It's not morning anymore

Page 13/29

Good work at your early morning part time job

I said earlier you could go to the university without me

Well, the weather's nice you know

You were really sound asleep on the park bench

A ha ha

Did you not sleep last night?

But for some reason I've been really sleepy lately

Nope

I slept

Page 15/29

I'm really slow at it

You're really good at this Sakura-san!

To...Tomoyo-chan?

That's amazing

Super Lightning Fast Speed!

indeed

Akiho speaks in a formal manner; the 'desu' doesn't mean anything, but I wanted to portray her speaking method so I put that there

Page 16/29

Did Kaito-san's fever go down after you got back?

But...

Yes

At that time he said he was just fine and after just a day's rest, the next day he was up early and doing well

Kaito-san is very skilled at hiding things...

Hiding?

If he's tired, or in pain, or sad

He never shows any of it to me

Page 17/29

He always smiles kindly to me

Want to see how he really feels

...right?

But

I really...

Page 18/29

Because he's very important

...Yes

In case you're wondering it's Akiho who's speaking right now

...But

Page 19/29

People can easily wound other people

Since you can't see those wounds with your eyes

The kanji literally means torn/cut. But a 'torn/cut heart' doesn't sound right, so I used wounded

It's very scary

It's very scary

It's very scary

A wounded heart is

not easy...to talk about

Akiho-chan...

Page 22/29

Time for the old song-and-dance [Sleep] then [Capture]. Sorry, now it's [Snooze] and [Secure]. Giant scissors based on the fact that Akiho said something about a torn/cut heart.

Ah...

Page 23/29

What?

...It seems something that made Sakura-san's heart quiver has happened again

Not sure about this context so I took a guess

A new card has been born it seems

What's the purpose of the card this time?

Yuna D. Kaito is speaking

Regardless of purpose

How can the Clear Cards be turned into [power]? Hm, I don't know. Yet another thing we have no clue about is added to the LONG list

Well

those cards can be turned into [power]

Who knows?

Page 24/29

Yuna D. Kaito is still talking

You've long been protecting

that book so it will move

Page 25/29

That's why

a great many cards must be born

For you, this is something that hasn't happened in a long while

And this is not a new matter

The last time that book moved

was more than a century ago

...That's true

Page 26/29

And

as you know, the cause of the movements before didn't produce good results

The last time the magic power that made the book move wasn't enough

This time

that girl

and you are here

Page 27/29

...With that magic power the Book's time will move and the forbidden magic can be activated

For that purpose it wasn't given back

No clue about this so I guessed.

Page 28/29

The Magic Organization and

that clan together

made the greatest [magic artifact]

Page 29/29

Phew, a chapter pretty much without Cerberus' atrocious speech. But still loads of stuff that didn't make sense when literally translated; had to wing much of it. In case you're wondering, the 'book' they're referring to is the book Alice in Clockland. The events in that book follow what happens to Sakura when she creates a card. Also, when they're talking about the book 'moving' they're talking about the 'time' in the book. The clock on the front of the book moves its hands when a card is made

Holy! So, Akiho is a magic artifact? I knew that book was all about Sakura's actions in regards to her making the new cards; but Akiho is a magic artifact?! Wait! That voice said [container], I think I've got it! Akiho herself must be a magic artifact that can absorb any amount of magic power! That would explain why she wants Sakura's [key]. Just my theory though; doesn't mean it's true

Akiho-san herself

A special next issue and a short story!!!

What is the destiny Akiho is burdened with...?!
