One day during a ball game at Sakura's school, there is a strange
disturbance in the appearance of the children's shadows during recess.
It goes unnoticed by all concerned.
The next day, the school is suddenly plagued by strange occurrences, such
as all the school's desks being arranged in massive piles both
outside the building and in the classrooms themselves. Kero
tells Sakura that it might be caused by a Clow Card, so they need
to return to the school at night to investigate. Tomoyo promises to
join them, intending to videotape Sakura's exploits.
That evening, Sakura and Kero stand outside the school's gate.
Tomoyo arrives in the company of her four bodyguards. She also
brings along a van containing a number of costumes, one of which she
tells Sakura to wear. Sakura is reluctant because she thinks she
looks silly. But Tomoyo and Kero prevail, because Kero tells Sakura
the cards will take her more seriously if she looks like a 'proper'
Card Captor. Tomoyo even has a matching bow for Kero.
Once she's dressed, the group heads into the school's courtyards.
As they hear a strange sound, Kero says he senses a Clow Card.
Suddenly a massive statue is dropped into the ground where they stood
but moments before. Groups of shadows then begin to pour over the
edge of the building, causing Kero to positively identify this card
as The Shadow.
At first, Sakura tries to bind this card with Windy, but there are
simply too many shadows. Kero says the card has taken all of the
student's shadows. The only way to make them go away is for it to be
too bright for Shadows. In a moment of inspiration, Tomoyo takes
Kero and runs into the school. Just as the Shadow is about to pull
Sakura from her winged wand, all the School lights turn on and the
shadows disappear. Only the Shadow of the card is left. Sakura is
now able to use The Windy to bind the shadow and return it to the
The Card's Power:
To capture shadows and give them the ability to manipulate
Appearances and Uses in Other Episodes (up to ep. 27)
Used to cast Sakura's image and power into the museum so that Sakura
could capture The Silent.
Used to harness all of The Mist into one place so
that Sakura is able to seal the card.
