|Clear Card Arc Chapter 1|
Like the previous arcs, Clear Card opens with an ominous statement: “When all the cards are gathered... It is not the end, but rather, the beginning. The beginning of the end.”
The chapter itself begins with the heroine, Sakura Kinomoto, getting ready for her first day of middle school. After getting ready and having eaten breakfast, she leaves for school. The cherry blossoms are in bloom, and after wishing that she could see them with Syaoran, she meets him beneath the trees. The chapter itself takes place right after chapter 50 of the original series. Syaoran tells Sakura that his business back in Hong Kong is complete, and he's now a permanent resident of Tomoeda. He will also be attending the same school, Tomoeda Middle School with her.
Sakura speaks with Eriol over her phone, giving him news about which classes she and her friends are in after school that day. Sakura and Tomoyo remain in the same class with Chiharu, while Syaoran is in the same class as Yamazaki and Naoko. It is revealed that Rika is attending a different school, however Sakura keeps in touch with her with texts and phone calls. Eriol makes a statement that Sakura would have a sweet dream, and after the phone call ends, Sakura looks at the bear she made for Syaoran. It is revealed in a short flash back scene that they trade bears under the excuse that the bears were lonely being unable to see their makers for so long.
Touya delivers a small gift to Sakura from Yukito, a little hair accessory, and she places it in her jewellery box along with her Star Key.
Sakura finds herself in a dream with clear cards floating around her. In front of her is a hooded cloaked figure with star motifs decorating the cloth. When Sakura reaches out, the cards shatter and fly towards the figure. Sakura then wakes in alarm, and concerned for the cards she rushes over to the Sakura cards and opens the book, shocked by what she's faced with.
