Sakura and the Mysterious, Magic Book

© 1998 CLAMP, Kodansha, Madhouse, © 2000 Nelvana, Inc.
Color / Stereo / 22 minutes / Japanese Language / English Subtitles / English Dub


Kinamoto Sakura is your typical grade 4 girl. She has a lot of energy, often fights with her elder brother Touya (Grade 11), has a major crush on her brother's best friend (Tsukishiro Yukito - Grade 11), and is active in the cheerleading club at school. Having a strange dream isn't the best way to start one's day Sakura found out. Worrying about the dream, Sakura ended up hitting herself on the head with her baton at practise. How painfully embarrassing for her! However, after returning home from her club practise, Sakura heard a strange noise coming from her father's office. Alone in the house, Sakura decided to take a look but when she searched, despite still having heard the strange noises, she found... nothing. A glowing book quickly grabbed her attention and proved to be none other than the Clow book she'd seen in her dreams that morning. Unfortunately, for Sakura, she decided to try and read the name of the first card and ended up summoning an incredibly strong gust of wind which scattered the cards throughout the city leaving Sakura in possession of only one card - "Windy". Sakura must now try and recapture the cards which escaped in the gale; however, she will not be alone in her search for the creature guarding the cards has also awoken and emerged from the Clow book and is none other that the strange winged creature from her dream. His name? Cerberus. And so began Sakura's unwilling beginning into chasing the cards that had been freed from their magical binds and becoming a Card Captor...
