The Demon's True Face is the 21st episode of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.



All is not well in Outo country as the demons(oni, kiji) have started to attack non-slayers in the night. The news spreads quickly, though Fai and Sakura decide to concentrate on making dinner rather than worrying about it.

Meanwhile, Kurogane continues Syaoran’s training by instructing him to blindfold himself and then find his way back home.

Syaoran heightens his senses, making his way to the cafe, but is ambushed by an Oni. Seeing Syaoran in danger, Ryuuoh takes off his blindfold, and Syaoran proceeds to defeat the demon. As evening sets in, the two talk about their goals of getting stronger.

At the Clover lounge, Kurogane and Fai arrive to hear Oruha singing. They question her afterwards about the new demon, and she reveals that it has a human form and has power over the other demon. At the city plaza, a cloaked figure uses one of Sakura’s feathers to control the demon that he summons.

Feeling the draw of the feather, Sakura wanders toward it in a half-daze. Syaoran and Ryuuoh happen to be in the area and manage to stop her. They enter the plaza to find some very strong demon and the cloaked figure watching over them. Syaoran is shocked when he identifies the now not-hooded face as Seishirou-san.
