Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc (カードキャプターさくら クリアカード編, Kādokyaputā Sakura), also known as Card Captor Sakura: Clear Card Arc. It is the sequel to Cardcaptor Sakura.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Edition starts at the point where the first series ends, when Sakura starts junior high school along her friends, including Syaoran, who had just returned to Tomoeda. After having a dream with a mysterious cloaked figure, all of Sakura's cards turn blank and are rendered powerless, thus she starts her quest to find out what is wrong.
