Princess of Shadows is the 9th episode of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle.



After a recap of the end of last episode, we see three people in bamboo hats approaching the city. They appear to be the real Miteshu.

At Chu'nyan's house, the group decides to infiltrate the castle. However, they must get past the barrier guarding it. Mokona suggests contacting Yuuko. Because of the equal trade rule, Fai gives up his staff in order to get a ball that will allow them access to the castle. The group departs but leaves Chu'nyan and Sakura behind to wait for their return.

Inside the castle, Fai feels something strong behind a wall, so Kurogane punches a hole through. Inside they find the witch, Kiishimu, that we saw at the end of last week’s episode. She summons them into a room full of acidic balls and water with pillars all around. Fai and Kurogane take staffs and start swatting the balls until Syaoran kicks his way out and ahead.

Fai and Kurogane square off against Kiishimu and her acid balls (which have combined to form giant acid balls). Meanwhile, Syaoran wanders through the halls and eventually encounters the Ryanban's son and Syaoran is challenged to a fight
