    I KEPT READING AND WATCH TSUBASA.....UNTIL NOW.



    I HOPE CLAMP CONTINUE THE SEASON 3 :(( DON'T GIVE UP LIKE SYAORAN DID THAT YOU WILL NOT LET DIE THE FANS JUST TO END THIS... I WANT TO HAVE AN ANIME THAT SAKURA AND SYAORAN SAY "I LOVE YOU" WERE ALWAYS WAITING FOR THAT MOMENT =((



    TSUBASA CHRONICLES WAS MY MOST FAVORITE ANIME THAT I EVER WATCH =)))

  • Even more boring than the boring world of Bohr's atoms

    I gotta say, I'm pretty impressed that Clamp is still selling books today. I mean, they started out with "monster of the week", then moved on to "card of the week", and now behold, we have Tsubasa, "world of the week." What's next, word of the week?



    Like I said in my review on Bleach, I won't write long reviews for Shonen/Shojo works anymore since they are basically the same stuff over and over again and I already covered all I wanted to say about this genre in there. This review will still focus on the manga mostly but only for the story and the characters. The story is repetitive to the extreme. Basically the group just moved from on world to another and you always find a cheesy sub-story in each world. The worlds don't have any connections to each other either. Besides looking for the feathers, I still don't get the main storyline after 160 something chapters.



    Characters are very boring. Sakura is the most boring female lead I have ever seen. I completely agree with what Newtype said about how she has "the most shining smile", because that's all she has! Man she doesn't even talk much. Clamp, take my advice, Miss Perfect is for kindergartens. The fake Syaoran is a robot. The only trait he has is to protect Sakuya. Fay and Kurogane are overrated too. Sure, both of them have a complete volume dedicated to their pasts, but in the present they are still typical Shonen characters with no connections to their past. Just what does Kurogane, being the only non-gay character, have anything to do with his parents being killed??? The only one that's worth discussing is the real Syaoran. Certain depth can be associated with him, especially in those chapters involving the relationship between him and the hime, like how they still cares for each other yet constantly avoiding each other. They did a good job portraying his feeling and thoughts. This is the only personal conflict in Tsubasa. Pathetic.



    Artstyle overall is amazing with lots of details, both in the manga and the anime. The graphics in the anime is good too, not amazing but still good. Color scheme is also nice and bright.



    Voice acting is good, especially for the hime. I'm not a huge fan of anime girls with those loli voices. Music is top notched. Tsubasa (OP1) and the Song of Fire and Storm (IN) are true music. Too bad all these talents are wasted on this…



    Move on to theme. Tsubasa doesn't have a theme. Period. Or you can try to convince me what the theme is.



    Presentation sucks. What I mean by presentation are things like camera angles, scene switching, when to start the background music, etc. First on the anime. It's 2007 already and we don't really need to see the camera fixing on a guy's face for 5 seconds without him saying a word. I didn't even finish the first season because of this. Next the manga. I think I hate Clamp's style. They failed to deliver anything to me except the Kurogane's past arc. Even the love element looks like kindergarten stuff compared to Suzuka. All I get from reading the manga is that things happened, so what?



    Other technical stuff. The dialogues are shallow. There are no humours either. The only gags are the ones Fay and Monoka played on Kurogane and they are all gay.



    In conclusion, Tsubasa is a failure in almost everything, and its biggest failure is that they chose to work on a boring world-switching plot. Don't touch Tsubasa, that's my advice.moreless

  • A cleverly written Anime show with plenty going on to keep you excited!

    9.7
    Intro:

    Tsubasa Chronicles is done by the artist team of CLAMP is is currently in its second season. It shows the journey of Sakura and Syaoran and they search for Sakura's lost memory which have taken the physical form of feathers.



    Story 10/10:

    As alread mentioned Tsubasa Chronicles is the story of the Princess of the Clow Kingdom Sakura and her childhood friend Syaoran. After finding a mysterious ruins outsde the Kingdom Sakura finds herself mysteriously drawn towards it and an unknown power activates stealing her memories away from her. Syaoran, who vows to save her life and memories jump around from World to World with their companions Kurogane, Fye D. Flowright and Mokona and attempt to find all of Sakura's feathers. But to gain the power to move from world to world each character had to give up their most precious possession. What are they? Watch to find out!



    Characters 10/10:

    Tsubasa Chronicles has the richest cast of characters I have seen in an Anime show. Each character is very individual, have their own perks and quirks and very deep pasts that take quite some episodes to find out about. First we have Syaoran, a quiet yet strong indiviudal who has strong feelings for Sakura. Sakura is The Princess of the Clow Kindgom and is in love with Syaoran, but cannot remember because of her lost memories. As they're journey begins they become compaions of Kurogane who is desperately trying to his world of Fuedal Japan and Fye D. Flowirght who is a wizard trying to do everything to stay away from his home country. Finally is Mokona who is, as Kurogane puts it a "white bun". Mokona is your typical Anime creature/mascot that no Anime would be complete without!



    Animation 10/10:

    The drawing and animation in Tsubasa is come of the best I have seen. All the characters are beautifully drawn and all the animation flows very nicely, especially in combat and magic scenes. Scenery and worlds also have their own unique style and when the characters move about worls you can easily diferentiate the worlds. Not a whole let else to say except CLAMP does some mighty fine work.



    Flow 8.5/10:

    Whilst you never get lost in Tsubasa Chronicles, due to it being taken from Manga many bits were chopped out and you'll often find yourself wonering small things like, When did they change clothes? Or, when did they teleport to thsi world? Ultimately though it doesn't matter as the story is engaging and easy to pick up what is happening.



    Outro 9.7/10:

    Tsubasa is a great Anime show with beautiful animations, great storyline and characters full of personality. Apart from a few minor flaws with story flow it is a fantastic Anime and not one to miss!moreless
  • I didnt really like the show.

    8.0
    I didnt really like the show. At first I loved the fact that i could get to see the CCS characters again.... and the crossover with xxxHolic and the other CLAMP series...



    but then the anime version only gets further from the original story in the manga, especially after the second season, and the ending was not even the same!! i hated that!



    I really LOVED the OVAS though. (both Tokyo and Shunraiki)

    I also strongly reccomend you all to read the manga. it's way better! in my opinion it's the best of all of CLAMP's work that said, im a huge fan of these series. but i think the anime is not good enough for it.moreless
