Card Captor Sakura Episode 3
Sakura's Heart Pounding First Date

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


Sakura's class is spending the day at the aquarium having fun seeing all the different fish and the various animal habitats. However, while at the penguin enclosure, the penguin trainer and one of the penguins suddenly gets in trouble and can't get out of the water. What's wrong with the penguin pool and why is there a strange eddy in the water there? However, who comes to the rescue other than Sakura's brother Touya! If what happened in the penguin's pool was one of the Clow Cards however, which card could it be and how is Sakura to capture it?

However, more important than the penguins is that Yukito has come over with Touya after work. Sakura's heart may well melt into nothing at the idea of Yukito being under the same roof! Kero-chan in the meantime, has identified which Clow Card was present at the aquarium; Watery. Watery is one of the elemental cards along with Wind(y), Earth(y) and Fire(y). Worse is that Watery is one of the martial cards with a strong attack, and while Sakura has one elemental card, Windy; Windy is a gentle card and is no match for Watery. How does one go about capturing water? and can Sakura do so with the cards she currently has?
