    • (Fay gets up from the pool where Ashura is sealed) Chi: Is she asleep? Fay: Yeah. After all, it was the only way. Chi: What are you going to do now, Fay? Fay: That's right. Since I've already sealed Ashura with my own hands, I can't stay in this kingdom anymore. No... in this world. I must leave now, for a world without Ashura.

    • Kurogane: (laughs) Isn't there anyone stronger out there? Tomoyo: (watching from afar) Is that really true, Souma? Souma: Yes Tomoyo: I told him to refrain from needless killing. Souma: What do you think, Princess Tomoyo? Tomoyo: I guess there's no way to avoid it.

    • Touya: He frustrates me, that kid. But, he's the destined one, right? Yukito: Yeah. It's Syaoran-kun... the one destined for Princess Sakura. But, my premonitions allow me to see that the future of those two holds many trials. The princess possesses a mysterious power. Even I do not know what it is. But it is a power that will change the world. Also, that power will bring many hardships and much disorder.

    • Sakura: (jumps on Syaoran, causing him to fall down) Syaoran! Welcome home! How is the excavation of the ruin going? Are you hurt? Did you get any fevers? Have you been eating properly? Syaoran: (politely) Ah, yes. It went well. Sakura: Keigo [Japanese formal speech]. Syaoran: Huh? Sakura: I told you I don't like it when you speak in keigo. Syaoran: But... princess... Sakura: Sakura Syaoran: Huh? Sakura: I told you to call me by my name. Syaoran: Ah... well... okay. Sakura: Sa-ku-ra! Syaoran: Sa... Sakura.

    • Next Episode Preview Mokona: Syaoran and the two other people from distant worlds, have met up with the Dimensional Witch and their journey finally begins! But right when they get to their first country, they're dragged into a terrible situation! Oh the humanity! Huh? And just who might you be? Just watch and find out! Tsubasa Chronicle, Episode 2: "The Power to Fight". Brace yourself for the flame next time!

    • Syaoran: I beg of you! Please save Sakura!!
      Yuko: ...

    • Princess Tomoyo: I am sending you to a world of witches and goblins. Kurogane: You don't have to be that extreme!!!

    • Sakura: I told you to call me by name. Syaoran: Ah...well...okay... Sakura: Sa-ku-ra! Syaoran: Sa-Sakura. Sakura smiles

    Trivia (51)

    • Some of the plot points of the Tsubasa Chronicle and xxxHOLiC occasionally intertwine with each other.

    • Tsubasa means "Wing" in Japanese

    • Fei Wong REED, the one who wants Sakura's feather, has a familiar name, don't you think? His name resembles another character from CCS, the powerful magician and creator of the Clow Cards, Clow REED. It is possible that this is an indication of the magical prowress of Fei Wong Reed.

    • The Clow Kingdom showed quite a few appearances from Cardcaptor Sakura characters, there is the obvious Syaoran and Sakura, but there is also Touya [his character in CS was Sakura's brother]who is Sakura's brother and King of Clow Kingdom, Yukito [who was Yue's other personality in CS the high priest, former King Clow[who was Clow Reed, creator of the Clow Cards in CS]and Fujitaka[he was Sakura's father in CS] who is Syaoran's adoptive father.

    • The scene of when the high priest, Yukito, was sending Sakura and Syaoran to the dimensional witch, a symbol appears under the pair. The symbol is almost exactly the same as the Clow symbol in Cardcaptor Sakura when Sakura seals a Clow card. The crescent moon in a circle is even positioned the same, on the 'east' character. The difference is the sun in the middle of the intertwined squares on the Clow symbol in CCS is replaced by a crescent moon-like thing in Tsubasa Chronicle. It makes sense because in CCS, Yukito (Yue) is the Guardian of the Clow cards who is represented by the moon.

    • Sakura was stopped from disappearing and her feathers dispersed. Currently there are 26 episodes scheduled, but if each world only recovers one or two feathers the show could get quite long recovering all her feathers (50+ feathers scattered). What could happen is the show ends before all the feathers are collected, with just hinting that the adventure continues till they recover all of them.

    • The little fluffy sidekick called Mokona is identical to the one in Magic Knight Rayearth, except in Tsubasa Chronicle it can actually speak. Mokona also is named after Mokona [Apapa] a principal CLAMP writer, and the co-creator of the Manga.

    • Yuko tells them if they want to travel to diffrent worlds, the group must give up their most precious items. Kurogane's item was his katana sword, Gin-Ryu (Silver Dragon) Fai's item was the tattoo on his back that allowed him to use magic. And Syaoran's item was his relationship with Sakura. Yuko expains to Syaoran that she will never remember him, and even if they get all her feathers, all the memories of Syaoran won't be there.

    • The magic circle used by Yukito to teleport Syaoran and Sakura is a variation of the magic circles seen in Card Captor Sakura, except that all the celestial symbols are lunar. The CCS circles usually had a sun, star, and moon with one of the three as the "principal" element.

    • Chii: Chobits Fai's assistant is an organic version of the character Chii, taken from the anime series "Chobits".

    • Cardcaptor Sakura The first episode of Cardcaptor Sakura has Sakura hearing noises from the basement as she's making dinner. She goes down to investigate and finds it's coming from the book. She opens it to release the seal as well as all the cards. The first episode of Tsubasa Chronicle has Sakura hearing noises from the ruins as she's looking out from her balcony. She ends up inside the ruins and touches the seal on the floor to release the seal and loses all her feathers.

    • Syaoran Syaoran's father died in an archaeological dig, leaving him an orphan, but Syaoran felt compelled to continue his father's work. He's closer than ever to uncovering the secrets of the giant wings buried in the sand, but a threat to Sakura's safety sends him on a quest to save her life! The Tsubasa versioni of Syaoran is very different from the character in Cardcaptor Sakura. Where the CS Syaoran is dour, surly, even rude at times, Tsubasa's version is open, friendly—and clearly in love with Sakura.

    • Sakura While it's clear that Sakura is older than her counterpart from Cardcaptor Sakura, we don't actually know her age yet. She is the princess of Clow, raised by her brother, King Tōya. She's a happy princess, well-loved by her people. Sakura possesses the power to change the world, but it will be a while before she—or we—understand what that means.

    • Mito Koumon Mokona mentions Mito Koumon during their conversation with Chun'yan. Mito Koumon is an hour-long TV drama in Japan which has been going on since 1970. The main character is an old aristocrat who "looks for injustice" and tries to correct it. Every time he catches a criminal, he pulls out the Shogun, an emblem that has partly made this show famous.

    • Chu'Nyan and her mother’s power seem very similar to white lighters and others where their power can only be used to help others.

    • The group of minishu[sp?]that came to the town is the Clamp School Detectives, Nokoru, Suoh and Akira from the anime Clamp School, obviously made by none other than CLAMP. Nokoru can also be found in the manga X, by CLAMP as well.
