Once again, Sakura has a strange dream and sees someone standing
across from the Tokyo Tower dressed in a costume while Clow Cards
fall in a clutter across the image. She can't tell if this person
is herself or someone new. When she awakes, she tells Kero-chan
about it. He says her magical power could mean this is an omen.
That day at school a strange boy joins their class. His name is
Li Syaoran and he is a transfer student from Hong Kong. Sakura
notices something strange about him and they stare at one another
across the room with a strange sense of foreboding. In the
playground, Syaoran uses a strange board and discovers Sakura has a
Clow Card with her. He demands she hand it over. Surprised he knows
about the cards, Sakura refuses to give him the card. Syaoran is
surprised in return that Sakura knows Cerebus and wonders why the
guardian beast would allow a 'kid' like Sakura to chase the cards.
Syaoran also implies that Sakura is a bad card captor because she has
captured so few cards thus far. He tries to take the card from her
by force, which causes Touya to come to his sister's aid. Syaoran
and Touya almost fight when they interrupted by Yukito who offers
everyone meat buns. Syaoran blushes and runs away.
On the way home from school a strange thunder storm strikes, but
while there is a lot of noise and lightening, there is no rain.
Sakura and Tomoyo take cover under the penguin in Penguin Park where
the wait out the storm which clears just as suddenly. Sakura then
runs home to tell Kero-chan about the strange occurrences of the day.
Over a cup of tea, he reveals the truth of
Tomoyo calls on the phone to tell them a strange thunder storm is
happening again and Kero recognizes this as the power of the Thunder
card. They go to meet Tomoyo in the park and Sakura dresses in a
rubber cat costume made to protect her from the lightening. Using
The Fly, she heads into the sky to attack the card. It counters and
she uses The Jump to escape. To defeat this card, she must change it
to its original form but doesn't know how. Syaoran suddenly appears
and mocks Sakura for not knowing how to do this. He uses magic on
the card and turns in to a giant lightening wolf beast.
Sakura first thinks to capture it with Windy, but Syaoran calls
her stupid and says it won't work. Syaoran tells her to use The
Shadow card as he attacks the beast with a magic spell. The Shadow
wraps itself around the lightening beast and Sakura is able to
capture it. Syaoran continues to mock Sakura and calls Kero a
stuffed animal. Kero bites his finger in return and decides he
definitely doesn't like Syaoran.
The Card's Power:
To create thunder and lightening.
