Card Captor Sakura Episode 5
Sakura, the Panda and the Cute Shop

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


Matsumoto Maki has just moved to Tomoeda and is in the process of opening her new shop Twin Bells. On her way to school, Sakura meets Maki who invites her to the shop when she finishes school. Maki figures she should have finished putting out all the merchandise by that time so there should be plenty for Sakura to look at. However, as Sakura goes off to school, she watches as Maki trips and drops a box and wonders if all will infact be alright by the time she finishes school.

At school, Chiharu also mentions the new store which is opening up and suggests that everyone (Chiharu, Naoko, Rika, Tomoyo and Sakura) all go together after school to see the new shop. There should be many cute toys and other goodies for everyone to look at. However, when they get to the store, they find that things have yet to be set up and displayed. In fact, as they watch, they see Maki trip while carrying a box dropping everything. Things are not very promising with this new shopkeeper! However, wanting to see all the toys and other things, the five girls decide to help the hapless shopkeeper in setting out her wares. While taking a break from setting up, Chiharu spots a big cute panda and decides to buy the toy. However, the toy itself seems to have a will of its own as the girls discover the next day when it decides to pay Maki another visit. How is it that the panda left Chiharu's home? Could it be that there is another Clow Card at work here?
