Both are CLAMP anime and are full of cross over characters. If you've seen CCS first, you'll definitely enjoy Tsubasa Chronicle more. The other way around... Probably makes it a bit harder to recognize characters. The genres are a bit different though. CCS is magical girl anime whereas Tsubasa Chronicle is more the adventure type.
If you like Sakura, Syaoran and other characters from Clamp, watch Tsubasa Chronicle! It takes place in an alternate setting, complete different storyline, but the characters are still the same! Tsubasa Chronicle also introduces two new characters only for Tsubasa Chronicle, Fay/Fai and Kurogane. If you like Clamp, you'll like this one for real!
if you loved Cardcaptors than you will surely enjoy it since you find the same characters. I also recommend a LOT to those who simpy love the relationship between Sakura and Shaoran (like me ^^.. they are so cute together! )
they are really simliar. the main charatersy are exactly alike in personality and appearance. they are both really romantic in a special kinda way :) but i think Syaoran is more "active" in the tsubasa chronicle series, and he shows more care about sakura too. I personally like Tsubasa chronicle a lot better :) there is also a second season tsubasa chronicle, if you watched tsubasa chronicle, you just HAVE TO see the second season and the moives ;)
They both are different plots but with some of the same characters that you can't help loving. I watched both of them and i can't help but saying that if you like one of them, you will definitely like the other.
These two animes, both based on works by CLAMP, are very different story-wise, but they have similar main characters (like Sakura and Syaoran) and supporting characters (like Tomoyo, Toya, and Yukito). Another thing they have in common is that both series involve collecting things to achieve their goals where CCS collect cards when TC collect feathers.
Both are by CLAMP so the art and feel is very similar. They both involve the leads having to collect something in order to achieve a purpose. In cardcaptor, sakura must collect clow cards, and in tsubasa, syaoran must collect feathers containing sakura's memories.
: I really like the soundtracks in Tsubasa Chronicle and the first thing that make impression to me in Pandora Hearts was the music too (: Then I checked that both soundtracks are by the Japanese composer and music producer Yuki Kajiura.
::The second thing that is similar is the idea of searchingis for the lost memories of the main heroine, with the help of her friends, which she meets on her journey.
:::And maybe the tird thing that is similar are the characters, that looks bright, but in the reality have other, more darker sides of them /like Oz and Fye/
Both animes are awesome, so I highly recommend you to watch them ^^
Two characters,off searching for the memories of the female protagonist of the story.Under different circumstances,but the general objective is the same.Also,Break can seem like a sick minded Fai at times.
Besides the obvious fact that both have a male lead and a female counter part, but in both animes the travel with strangers in order to accomplish what they want, (InuYasha=Shards, Tsubasa=Feathers). From the second episode of Tsubasa you get the InuYasha feeling.
In both series the main character and the heroine travel together with other companions they met in the beginning if the story to gather shrads ( in Inuyasha - of the Shikon jewel and in Tsubasa - of Sakura's memories). And the antogonists are trying to gather them first.
They keep that lovely feeling of 'this could happen to you'. The humor is a lot alike, and the serious parts on both will make you cry for the same reasons. For anyone who loves adventure, action, ninja/samurai, romance, etc.
Both shows follow a 'collect 'em all' format- in Inuyasha, they're trying to find shards of the Shikon Jewel while in Tsubasa they're trying to find scattered memories in the form of feathers. There's romance in both shows and you can see hints of Inuyasha's characters in those of Tsubasa, although Kagome and Sakura are especially similar.
If you liked Tsubasa, I think you'll love Inuyasha.
A sad story both made from clamp. Kobato features characters from tsubasa such as mokona, fai, and kurogane. The story line is similar, they both want to collect something imporant to them ; feather and kopeito.
Both are by CLAMP so the art and feel is very similar. They both involve the leads having to collect something in order to achieve a purpose. In kobato, kobato must collect konpeito, and in tsubasa, syaoran must collect feathers containing sakura's memories.
Involve epic scale of universe-changing physics. We all know Anime physics is mysterious, overly bouncy boobs, swords always beat guns, midair direction changing, easy to rip girl clothing, etc. But no, this two shows talk some serious physics and unlike what mentioned above, is difficult to prove untrue.
That makes many audience think "this might be true" since it's impossible to prove untrue. The laws mentioned in both shows are time-space continuum, multidimensional and multi-existence stuff. Really difficult to prove untrue. This make both shows look as credible as philosophy teacher, which is actually not much, but more believable than most sci-fi anime featuring Martians, which is much easier to prove untrue. (I'm not saying it is.)
No one is recommending you to learn quantum physics by watching anime. It's just that if you love epic-scale sci-fi setting with characters messing with laws of the universe, these are the shows for you. read more
It is not the anime but the manga that I recommence to all MadoMagi fans. Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE starts off as a cute shonen with a love story between Syaoran and Sakura (cf Cardcaptor Sakura). But at the very half of the manga (which corresponds to the Tokyo Revelation OAVs), things take a really darker tone.
Both series have similar themes (the price of wishes, trying to bring the dead back to life, temporal paradoxes due to travels back time, sacrifice, justice...), both series feature a lot of suffering, both series have great characters, both series surprise you with excellent plot twists. And both series have an OST by Yuki Kajiura x) read more
I am now on episode 5, not far, but this series has a girl searching part of a boys heart. It reminds me a lot of Tsubasa Chronicles. I thought it was going to be a dull series but I sat and watch all 5 episodes without stopping.. I think it's funny, a little corny, but has its merits.
The plot revolves around searching for fragments of memories (here they're parts of the wings, whereas in Princess Tutu they're pieces of a heart). The one who loses memory is a prince/princess and the one who searches for them - a person who's got feelings for the amnesiac. There're also some magical elements in both series. Oh, and both are quite old: PT was released in 2002 and TC in 2005.
Both Anime deal with the "adventure" type, as well with some fight scenes (though TC is cooler). The Story is quite different, but both main boys want to protect the girl.
Just in TC he tries to collect the memory feathers for Sakura and so the group always lands in various places. In Elemental Gelade the main goal is only to protect the girl and bring her to that "Garden" Place (as well they cross various places). As well, both deal with romance, though in Elemental Gelade its more "intensiv". Personally TC is far, far better, but if one likes adventure, action, fantasy and a bit of romance one will like both animes. read more
I guess I never realized how much the second CCS movie and Tsubasa were alike until the second time I watched it. The moive itself is probably more similar to Tsubasa than the entire CCS series is. The premise of "emotion" "love" and "loss" are extremely prevalent in both. Also, Tsubasa is all about the Syaoran x Sakura relationship as is this movie, following the development of the 70 episode series. I definitely recommend watching this movie and the CCS series if you love Tsubasa, and vice versa. Watching one will teach you about the main characters in the other as well.
Both anime have the innocent caramel-haired and peridot-colored eyes main girl that the story line revolves around. Tsubasa Chronicle and Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi have generally very beautiful stories. There are many cliche moments in both series as well, but they are generally well-played. Along with that, both series are cute overall.
Both have the same air about them, similar feeling artwork, the character Ai is similar to Sakura.
Both are based on a travelling team, although their goals are different I really feel these animes are similar
The female protagonist is a princess who, due to unfortunate circumstances, loses her kingdom and is forced to travel the world (or worlds, in Tsubasa's case) starting with just one companion, a man who protects her with utmost loyalty and has no trouble putting his life on the line for her safety. They gain other loyal companions/friends on their journey. The princess starts off very weak and defenseless, but has the strong will to shed away her ignorance and learn about the world and about fighting, too.
The princess also has to forget about her first love, though for different reasons. However, the hints of romance in both animes are very refreshing and there is a fair amount of comic relief that catches you off guard. In a good way. read more
A princess who gets strong willed as the series goes on and a boy used in fighting swore to protect his princess. He, who go to great lengths even if his life is on the line just to protect her. The main characters are childhood friends too. Cool fighting scenes. There are funny and cute moments but there are times that you just have to be serious. These two are the best romance-fantasy-comedy-adventure anime for me.
The story within both of these anime are incredibly enjoyable with fun likable characters appearing in both. The action within these anime are enjoyable to watch and fluid. Tsubasa Chronicles is very much set up as a different story a week with a fun vibe with a depressing undertone. This is very similar to Sword Art Online as it has a sad story but very uplifting enjoyable moments. Both anime have great character development with Tsubasa Chronicle taking the lead as each episode develops the characters extremely well whereas Sword Art Online doesn't always deliver the development. For those that are interested in romance it does appear in both however Tsubasa Chronicles follows a more 'pure' love kind of route whereas Sword Art Online is solid in the first half but devolves into a more harem anime set up so romance isn't as focused on.
If you enjoyed either of these anime I would recommend to try the other. read more
Is that even possible?I mean clones and 2 souls in one body? Could it get any weirder? Yes it can, it also gets sad,scary,funny,and really good.Keeping secrets can be harder than you think. Watch this magical anime and see for yourself. Your in for one anime you`ll never forget because its sooo good!
Defineately the same futuristic-yet-historical feel and atmosphere to both. Nice pleasant watches, including fantasy, some comedy, action and lots of adventure (group travel places to achieve a goal)
Also both have the underlining little romance plot - with guy caring and protecting vulnerable girl.
Both Tsubasa and Tales have a similar type of storyline and are both fantasy stories set in another world with lots of action and plot development.
However, Tsubasa is a series and Tales is a 4 ep OVA ( with a 4 ep sequel) so ToS has a faster pace.
Recommending Tsubasa Chronicle, its sequel, and OVAs.
Two fantasy stories that begin with a simple premise of a group of fighters, initially strangers, accompanying a young girl and help her gather items that are important to her. They travel from place to place looking for those specific items which have magical properties, sometimes used by others for their own gain.
As the plot progresses, not everything surrounding the main characters is as it seems - not even the main characters themselves. To explain it here would be a spoiler for both series.
They are both interesting series that have concepts of dimension jumping. Tsubasa Chronicle has a more dark and serious story that follows mostly male characters (shounen), whereas Flip Flappers is much more colorful and light hearted story that follows young girls. They were both entertaining to watch because of their unlimited entertainment possibilities gained from their dimension jumping abilities.
the main character is, one way or another pretty similar... syaoran and teito.. they are small and all... Teito is searching for his memory due to memory loss, same like sakura.. Bishounen characters... Similar antagonist and protagonist plot... etc..
Has an excellent blend of action, adventure, and romance, with a great soundtrack to top it off. If you are looking for any of these factors in an anime, then you cannot go wrong with either of these series.
Both anime have a group traveling together to find something very important (Feathers/memories in TC, gems in DQ). They meet a lot of people or creatures during their journey. Also, in both anime the boy and the girl are each other's love interest.
If you loved Tsubasa and this is your first time watching a work made by CLAMP, then you should definitely check out some of their earlier work.
Even though the animation in Rayearth may seem dated for some, it is still very enjoyable, and personally, I like it as much as I like the more modern ones.
In Rayearth, we follow three girls called Umi, Fuu and Hikaru as they are transported into a magical world called Celes, that they have to save. We will see the first appearences ever of some characters that were featured on Tsubasa, like Mokona for example! Others include Princess Emeraude, Primera, and the three protag girls.
I believe that while Tsubasa on its own is a good watch, seeing it after experiencing many other works by CLAMP only enrichens the experience much more, so definitely give Magic Knight Rayearth a chance. read more
I know, main plots are TOTALLY DIFFERENT. But somewhere they give me the same feeling. It has action, adventure and comedy. Both fun to watch and will make you cry rivers on some part! Well, Samurai Champloo reminded me of Tsubasa Chronicles when talking about travelling. Both have samurais and awesome fights! Some parts will make you laugh your ass off.
Chapter 21 page 187 of Tsubasa Chronicle (manga), "No matter what kind of power you use, the life that is lost cannot be restored! No matter how much I miss her, I can't see her anymore!".
And that's all I need to explain how these two are similar. They also use magic with lots of action you don't want to miss. They're both fantasy mixed with adventure and can make you cry too.
-Heroine and Sakura look alikes and both have lost their memory and do not remember the person they love.
-Both stories are about them trying to recover their memory (each in a different way).
-Also both are Bishounen.
But i can't explain details without spoiling...
Alright, this kind of HAS to be here. The format of the show is not that much similar, however, the background stories of the main characters and the underlying theme of meeting in another life, not to mention the whole Princess plot and various kingdoms in different dimensions/on different planets, gives me a very similar vibe.
-In both, the MCs are looking for something important.
-Both have someone who has an (evil) "clone".
-They have someone who goes blind in one eye.
-Both (almost) have the same genres.
-Tsubasa takes place in different worlds while Hakkenden takes place in Japan.
Both have an interesting concept of magic, used in pursuit of obtaining something that holds immeasurable power/potential. In Tsubasa Chronicle the items are Sakura's feathers, and in Fate/Zero the item is the Holy Grail. Honour and insanity among the different characters are constantly coming into conflict to bring forth an engaging plot line.
I also found that both their OSTs have similar feels/styles. If you like OSTs from one of these animes you'll certainly enjoy the OSTs from the other.
Both the female mains have an innocent appeal, somewhat clumsy and always receives the help and protection of the male lead. However, both are admirable for their strong will and mindfulness of everyone's emotions around them.
This next part may be somewhat of a spoiler for Nagi no Asukara, but the fact that Manaka loses her ability to love other people is closely similar to Sakura's loss of memories as well as her inability to have Syaoran's feelings reach her. Hikari loves Manaka, and Syaoran loves Sakura, but both girls are unable to receive those feelings because of some supernatural force taking their ability to love away in an exchange. Despite knowing the truth, the 2 male protagonists continue earnestly devoting themselves to the female protagonists. read more
We have similar short stories in both anime, which deal with mystic cases and women. Also heroes of D.Gray-man and Tsubasa Chronicle seek and gather some magic objects in different places, and that fact forms the main plot. Characters are also similar - Lenalee acts just like Sakura, Allen has a hidden personality in him, "another him", like Shaoran. Also, both anime are shounen, and the original story was written by women authors in both cases. So some kawai elements and problems in relationships are also similar.
.hack//Quantum is the Tsubasa of the .hack universe. Many of the characters are similar to their counterparts and somewhat follow in their footsteps. .hack//Quantum is a major treat for fans, but still accessible to newcomers.
Both features a group of four people traveling together search for something. Both groups have a cutesy mascot who helps them in their travels. Both groups also being watched by a good entity and the bad guys.
Both series involve the heroine to travel to a different world (or world's in Tsubasa's case). Both have action and adventure in them. Fushigi Yuugi however focuses more on the romance aspect of the main couple while Tsubasa has it's focus on the adventure and sacrifices the main male character has to make in order to save his princess.
both are very powerful RPG-style stories and both are animated by Bee Train,.Hack//sign is a sci fi/Drama exploring the way of life in"The World" which shows up that everything in an RPG is'nt always just a game,but focuese more on the lifestyles of Friendship,Drama and plenty of unsuspecting dark mystery,and a cast of likable characters,Tsubasa is a cool alternate universe Cardcaptor Sakura with a cool action mystery RPG storyline where Syaoran is an archeologist digger and a warrior where Sakura is a princess of the kingdom of clow and features many supporting characters from other clamp animations such as Makona from Magic knight rayearth and Chii from Chobits,and Yuko the witch from XXXholic and many new characters such as Kurogane(who swores to get revenge on Milady Tomoyo who putted a curse of him.lol) and Feiya,who's a very disturbing character who smiles almost 24/7 read more
Both stories about traveling to different worlds in order to find something. They both also have: a swordsman, a magician, and an annoying little creature. Though Yami to Boushi is more in the ecchi side.
Both anime travel to different places and meet different people. Tsubasa Chronicles has more of a focus on the storyline and Kino's does not have a objective. The adventure of these animes are both very similar as they go on there journey...
They both have that annoying factor where I/we/you have no idea what's "really" going on.
They both have that "bad guy" in the background that pops up, yet doesn't really play a part in the anime, until he does...
They both have a romance that's doomed form the start (TC-she has no memories, GC-she "likes" Gai).
They both have mecha-themed items (TC-some of the worlds they visit)
They both are on a team that you're not quite sure is the good side, but they might be... (TC-Fai is not who we think he is, GC-the group Shu is in, is not on the "right" side of the law). read more
The partners of Rahzel are very alike of Fai and Kurogane from Tsubasa according to their character. So it's like they are wandering around without Syoran, Sakura, and Mokona, but having found Rahzel instead =)
Both are fantasy and adventure with great accent on partnership and friendship and a bit of romance added.
Both of these stories focus on the relationship between two young lovers and follow the adventure, supernatural theme. Travel is incorporated in both shows and the character development is extremely developed in both cases. Also, Chrno Crusade and the TRC series are incredibly sad and emotional but amazing nonetheless and all of the main characters in both series have downright depressing lives. Both series are 10/10 but Tsubasa's manga is better than the anime.
Tower of Druaga and Tsubasa Chronicle show a group of characters that are traveling together for their own goals. Magic is used in both series, but in different manners. Some of the characters have similar traits.
Clannad and Tsubasa Chronicle, both great animes, both about a boy and a girl, in clannad they meet for the first time at school but in Tsubasa Chronicle they have been childhoodfriends, in both animes a relationship grows between the main characters.
I found that Kurogane reminded me a lot of Ed with his temper... The plot could be compared to FMA's as well-- the main characters spend the series looking for something, in this case memories in the form of feathers (not as bad as it sounds, I promise!) but they often get distracted by little subplots. Like fma, though, the subplots do not get in the way of the big picture.
The overall mood of the anime is quite similar. There is some humour in it, but behind that there is darkness and sadness.
