Sakura, Kero, and Syaoran (さくらとケロと小狼と, Sakura to Kero to Syaoran to) is the 32nd episode of the first series of Cardcaptor Sakura. The Cardcaptors title for this episode is "The Switch".


Sakura manages to capture a tricky Clow Card known as the Change Card. Before she captures it, it switches Kero and Syaoran and puts them in each other's bodies. Since they have to wait 24 hours before they can be switched back, Kero must return to Syaoran's house while Syaoran in Kero's body must stay at Sakura's house. The two try to keep a low profile so that nobody notices, but their natural instincts seem to be getting the better of them. To make matter worse, Syaoran in Kero's body gets taken at school and winds up in a game machine.

Featured Cards


(After Kero and Syaoran switch bodies)

  • Syaoran: You're so optimistic.
  • Kero: What was that!?
  • Syaoran: It might be fine for you, but I'm stuck in this body as a plush toy!
  • Kero: Who are you calling a plush toy? I don't want to be in this ugly body either!
  • Syaoran: What!?

(Sakura starts to giggle)

  • Kero and Syaoran: What's so funny about this!?


  • Unlike most medias, Syaoran and Kero do not retain their voices when they switch bodies, rather they speak in their original owner's voice; Kero would speak in Syaoran's voice but with an Osaka accent whereas Syaoran would speak in Kero's voice with his usual rude tone.

Differences between Cardcaptor Sakura and Cardcaptors

  • The most notable difference is the ending sequence. In Cardcaptors, it's just Syaoran Li returning to school after he and Kero have been successfully put back into their own bodies, having a pleasant talk with Sakura, and Kero making a snyde remark on riding around in Li's bag, and then the episode ended. In the original Cardcaptor Sakura, Syaoran was having a nightmare about something going wrong with using the Change Card to switch him and Kero back; while Syaoran was successfully put back into his own body, Kero now switched bodies with Sakura, and then Syaoran ended up switching bodies with Meiling. Then, Syaoran wakes up and is greeted by Meiling.
