The show begins as a simple girls' anime of the magical girl genre. Ten-year-old Sakura Kinomoto opens a mysterious book in her father's study and accidentally lets loose the magical Clow Cards. By her ability to open the seal, Sakura is revealed to have special powers, and it becomes her responsibility to retrieve the missing cards. The task involves finding each card, battling its magical personification, and sealing it away. She is assisted by Cerberus (Kerberos, also known as Kero-chan), the Beast of the Seal assigned to protect the cards, who was asleep when Sakura opened the Clow Book (He was on a "nap" at the time, which lasted 30 years). Kero-chan, who looks like an animated plush toy throughout most of the series (his "borrowed" form), guides Sakura as she develops her Cardcaptor powers. In the first episode, he presents her with the Key of the Seal, which allows her to fight and capture the Clow Cards.

The earthquake was caused by the Earthy card. Ms. Mizuki is nearby, but there is nothing going on around her. Sakura uses to Sleep card to put everyone except herself, Kero, Tomoyo, and Syaoran asleep; Ms. Mizuki is not affected by the card, however. Sakura uses the Fly card to see from above; while Syaoran makes sure everyone is safe. Sakura eventually uses the Woody card to seal it away. Now with the final card in her possession, Kero is able to transform into his true form. After a short celebration, Syaoran explains that Kerberos, representing the sun, is one of two guardians of the Clow Cards, the other being Yue the judge, representing the moon. Kero explains that the sole owner of the cards will be determined after Yue appears. Suddenly, Yukito magically floats with a light blue aura, and turns into Yue. Ms. Mizuki explains to Sakura that Yukito is Yue. Yue begins the Final Judgment of Syaoran, who tries to fight Yue with a seal, but Yue tells him that it is useless, and he can only use the Clow Cards he currently has. Syaoran tries to use the Time card, but since it is under Yue's jurisdiction, Yue can use it against him. Syaoran is defeated, and it is time for Sakura's Final Judgment.
