Card Captor Sakura Episode 8
Sakura's Rival

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


Poor Sakura was having another dream of Tokyo Tower only this time, instead of herself with Kero atop the building with cards swirling about, there is a young boy wearing a Chinese outfit. Who is the boy and why is he with Kero and the cards?

On her way to school, Touya teases Sakura embarassing her in front of Yukito. Yukito however, tells her that maybe the dream will come true; echoing what Kero had told her earlier.

At school, Sakura finds that they have a new transfer student joining their class. Li Syaoran has just transferred from Hong Kong and seems to be none other than the boy from Sakura's dream that morning! However, during lunch, Sakura finds out that Syaoran has come to claim the Clow Cards. Sakura's rival has come to race against her in capturing the Clow Cards.
