Differences between the anime and the manga[]

  • The biggest and most obvious difference is Syaoran's role in this episode. In the manga, the events of this episode took place before Syaoran's introduction, with him briefly appearing after the events and saying that he is sensing the Clow Cards, which was moved in the anime to him doing that after Episode 7 Sakura's capturing The Silent card. The anime moves the sports day event and the capturing The Flower card to after his introduction, meaning he actively participated in it.
