It’s the start of season 3, and Sakura and Kero have been bored since Sakura captured the last of the Clow Cards, Mrs. Mizuki is away in England for an overseas trip, and Shaoran is planning on heading home to Hong Kong now that the Clow Cards have a new master. However, there is a new transfer student from England in Sakura’s class, Eriol Hiiragizawa, who takes an unusual interest in Sakura.
Eriol Arrives, but for what reason?
Once again, this series pull out an excellent episode to start the third season off, and they aren’t exactly hiding what, generally, Eriol is. He’s clearly a magician there for Sakura in what way. However, for what reason he’s there and what powers he has, is still a mystery. Also, the fact that Toya had a new transfer student in this class likely isn’t a coincidence either.
This will really be Sakura’s first test as master of the Clow Cards, especially since, for whatever reason, she can’t seem to activate them anymore. This could also have something to do with the fact that the Clow book changed as well.
This episode also had several funny points in it, such as Tomoyo teasing Shaoran about liking Sakura, and the fact that he has a new “rival” in Eriol.
