Li Syaoran & Meilin Cels

Series: Card Captor Sakura

I doubt Li and Meilin will be sharing a page for long, this will ultimately become a Li only page, but for now it's convenient to group the two most regular Li family characters together.

I adored Li the moment he showed up glaring rather creepily at Sakura. The amounts of time that could be focused on one simple glare was impressive and never failed to make me giggle. Then add on top his immediate blushing, klutzy, awkward fixation on Yukito and he quickly became one of the cutest kids in anime. Plus, he has the same voice as the one I think is THE cutest kid: Koganei from Flame of Recca.

Meilin appeared on the scene with a glare that could rival Li's. And she immediately fell in as the other underdog with him. I couldn't help but root for them, right? Especially when their competence often got them nothing, while Sakura's blundering got her a lot. Not to put down Sakura too much, I like her as well and it's adorable to see her get closer to Li. Even though it means poor Meilin is in for a heart-breaking. What can you expect, though, when you tell your reluctant childhood crush that he's your fiance up until he falls for someone else? *shrug*

Up next: Lots of both. I haven't scanned any of them yet though.

Comments: Meilin and Li on their last card capturing expedition together. Meilin was finally getting closer to everyone, even Sakura, when she received word that her Mom wanted her to return to Hong Kong. It seemed to her that Li didn't care about the imminent departure, so she decided it was for the best that she was leaving because she was only a nuisance to him. That night, however, with the perfect timing of any shoujo series, they find themselves up against the Twin card. The only way to defeat it is by beating both twins simultaneously. With their synchronised training, this isn't a difficulty for Li and Meilin. As a result she realises she isn't a burden, but she still returns to Hong Kong.
Episode #: 31: Sakura and the Nameless Book
Stats: 1 layer, A7

Comments: Li and an over-sized kitty cat. When both the Big and Create cards appear at once, the gang is startled by this kitty. Everyone runs, with the exception of Sakura and Tomoyo who utilise the Fly card to escape. Meilin trips, so Li faces the cat with his sword to protect her. Either fortunately or unfortunately for him, the critter proves to really only want affection and overwhelms him with some.
