The Through (Kanji: 抜, Katakana: スルー, Romanji: Surū) is one of the fifty-two Clow Cards. It is under The Firey and under the power of the Sun, Cerberus, and Western Magic.


The Through's card form shows a young woman dressed in a flowing gown of the Oriental style, with long Chinese-styled hair; put into two loops at the top of the head held by a large bead, then falling into a very long tail. She wears ball-shaped earrings and has an oval-shaped gem on her forehead. She is pictured jumping through a silver, presumably solid, disk.

Magic and Abilities

Intangibility: Through allows its user to pass through solid objects, such as walls, ceilings, and floors. The thickness of the object and the strength of the user's magical powers are factors for using the card successfully, but if this does not work, the summoner will get stuck in the wall forever.

Fortune Telling: All Clow Cards have the ability to help their user predict the future. Their method of fortune-telling is similar to that of tarot cards. The interpretation of the message the Clow Cards relay depends on the magical power of the user.


Through's capture is not shown directly in the series, but Episode 36 shows that Sakura had captured it over spring break (the time period following Episode 35). Syaoran briefly mention the card in Episode 59 to find Tomoyo but Kero shot it down as the walls are too thick to do so. Through's transformation is not shown in the series, but in the beginning of episode 61 Kero makes reference to Sakura transforming 4 cards that day, so it is possible that Through was one of them. It is also possible that the Through's clothes, like those of the Fight, are a nod to Clow Reed's Chinese heritage.

The Through appears in the Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle manga, being part of Suzuran's troupé in Shara country.


  • The kanji at the top of the card: 抜, (Pronounced 'Batsu') means 'slip out', 'extract', 'remove' or 'omit' in Japanese.
