View Full Version : Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicle

28th February 2006, 12:49 AM
Does anyone like this manga besides me? I think the art work is wonderful (No less from CLAMP). I like all the characters except Fai that guy creeps me out slightly. Syaoran's pretty cool and I can relate to him. Actually I think I heard that there was a game for Nintendo DS, did anyone else hear about this?

Ah, Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicle. One of my most favorite manga series. The concept of CLAMP using their past characters from their past manga series is a good little treat for me, since it's more easier to get use to the characters since I'm familar with them. The comedy is good too, esspecially Fay and Mokona pissing off Kurogane. :D

The characters also retain a little of their personalities from their past series. Yuuku, on the other hand, is an exception, since TRC really DOES crossover to XXXHolic. Not just reusing the characters, it literally crosses over to XXXHolic.

And yes, there is a Tsubasa game (http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/5418/tsubasachronicleboxjp4yp.jpg) that's for Nintendo DS.

I really wanna read this, but I wanna finish some other CLAMP series first. I wanna catch as many crossovers as I can, that would make it more enjoyable. But I've looked throught it and it looks awesome.

What does it mean in english

7th July 2006, 7:12 AM
I don't care for it.

Now, XXXholic...I really enjoy that. The plot is much thicker and darker than Tsubasa. Tsubasa seems far too campy for me....but of course, I still love the Space/Time Witch, Yuko-san.

I read a little bit of the first graphic novel; thought the whole crossover thing was neat. Funimation has the english distribution rights to the anime I believe, so I'll be awaiting that. :D

Tsubasa means Wings, which makes sense since they are hunting for feathers

8th July 2006, 7:07 AM
Tsubasa Chronicles!! Animized onto TV!

I have all 14 volumes so far... I can read it online too. There's many serious spoilers in store.

I'd say this is a major work of CLAMP... crossovers of characters from many of the series they've done so far...

I love it! Syaoran is way nicer in Tsubasa than in Cardcaptor Sakura, don't you think? I think Fai is funny, especially with Kurogane. I'm only on vol. 5 (trying to catch up!) but I think it's really good. It has lots of different settings, and even though the goal is the same all the time (get the feather) each setting brings with it a new mini-plot. And the whole Syaoran/Sakura thing is sweet, too.
EDIT: By the way, does anyone know how many volumes CLAMP intends to release?

I like this series too. The characters are great and the plot twists are interesting. I have volumes 1-5 but have read up to chapter 100. And moonstone I'm not sure how long CLAMP intends to continue Tsubasa Chronicles but I don't think it will end any time soon. And Kurama the title means Resevoir Chronicle of the Wings.

This series is great! All the all stars from CLAMP's old creations are back, and they led CLAMP's most popular piece's star couple, Syaoran and Sakura! SS is probably CLAMP's most well-known couple and I'm happy they're back; now with Syaoran taking more major role than he did in CCS. I just wish Tomoyo can have her d-cam back and Eriol the "creepy four-eyed freak" comes with the d-cam as well... Eriol and Tomoyo were some of my most favourite mischevous characters... Nonetheless, the series is really good anyway! Tsubasa is good read for even the non-CCS fans.

I really like this series too. I never heard about them until I saw a friend of mine reading them, and I was like, "wth, are those the same characters or am I just going crazy?" then I read them and now I'm a fan.

I LOVE this series. Its sooo cute and I love the artwork. I have almost every volume. I've seen some anime torrents before, and its pretty good. <3

Hi I'm new here, but I love Tsubasa. I have only read up to volume 5, but I'm catching up. For the anime, Tsubasa Chronicles, I have seen up to episode 14 on youtube. I have also downloaded Tsubasa Chronicle: Future Soundscape and I love it. My favorite is A Song of Storm and Fire, but it has no lyrics. Well, I think that's it.

I love that manga, but as for the art, I have seen better stuff from CLAMP, and MANY other manga artists, but it is still cool art.

They say that Tsubasa will be far longer than X/1999 which last time I checked it contained 18 volumes, but it's being put on hold. Though it does seem like it will be a looooong manga considering how many feathers need to be brought back to Sakura.

17th July 2006, 4:37 PM
I am an ardent fan of TC already. lol.

If I were to put an estimation on the number of volumes Tsubasa Chronicles will have, I'd put that number around 25 to 30.

That's good, in a way, because it means you have lots to look forward too. But in a way it's not because you have to buy more... I mean, I try to check them out from the library as often as I can to save money, but the library has huge gaps in their manga collections. :( Gaaah!

I think there will be 32 mangas and then maybe another series clled something else because maybe Tsubasa (wings in japanese) covers all the feathers and then maybe another series will be all about them trying to defeat Fei Reed

22nd July 2006, 11:53 PM
I think they'd finish finding Sakura's feathers, then they'd spend a few volumes defeating Fei Reed. But I don't think they'd have a whole seperate series for that.

By the way... according to Amazon.com, volume 10 in English comes out on July 25.

22nd July 2006, 11:55 PM
It's alright, but nothing to be considered top 20 material. I personally prefer xxxHolic over it.

23rd July 2006, 11:59 PM
Oh I LOVE Tsubasa!!!
Right now I'm on episode 36...but i cant seem to find the rest, but oh well..
i dont seem to have any fav charaters rite now...though..but it is AWSOME!!!!

The last time I heard, CLAMP was going to release another 9 volumes of Tsubasa. Originally they had intended for it go up to 12 volumes, but due to popularity, they will continue the story. This, of course, means that XXXholic will continue as well.

I, too, prefer XXXholic. Volume 9 of XXXholic was released last week in Japan.

25th July 2006, 6:26 PM
I love Tsubsa Chronicles!! Mokona is hilarious.

25th July 2006, 6:45 PM
I've tried xxxHolic, and I think that some of the ideas are cool (words can bind, you have to do things for your own sake, etc.). Yuko is a really funny charcter, being playful one moment and dark and all-knowing the next. I still prefer Tsubasa, though. :)

26th July 2006, 5:08 AM
XXXholic takes a lot more maturity to comprehend. I would suggest reading it once you have a bit more life experience.

In that aspect, it's similiar to Evangelion. With a little more life experience, the message is quite powerful.

31st July 2006, 10:06 PM
You're probably right. :) Part of it could be preference, too.
It kind of makes me wonder, though... why did CLAMP crossover a more serious manga with an obvious crowd-pleaser (what with Syaoran and Sakura and all the other reused characters) like Tsubasa? I think Tsubasa, and xxxHolic, for that matter, would have been fine on their own. And they really don't have much in common...

I was watching some of my CCS dubs and even in CCS, Syoaran mentions the "Space-Time Witch" while dreaming one night. Kinda interesting that this character was mentioned back in CCS(which aired from 1999-2002). I wonder if Tsubasa and XXXholic were already in the works.....

2nd August 2006, 9:32 PM
Wow, that's kind of odd but a really cool piece of trivia. :) Judging from that, I'd bet CLAMP was already brainstorming Tsubasa/xxxHolic at the time.

Yeah.I'm only 11 but it's for 13 but I like it. It's really good. ^^ I like the anime too but the anime's too creepy but I like the manga better.That's what I think.What do you guys think?

9th September 2006, 4:56 PM
One of the best manga I've read. The latest volume in my country is 13 ^^

Well, some scenes make me feel warm and some story make me feel emotional : Yasha & Atula :x
