Tsubasa Chronicle: Shunraiki is the newest OVA adapted from the famous CLAMP manga Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. After the spectacular work done by production I.G on Tokyo Revelations I can say I was more than excited to watch this, since I am a big fan of the manga. The plot is also connected to the xxxHOLiC Shunmuki OVAs.

+ Very close adaptation of the original material
+ The actual plot is very interesting and complex
+ Plot twists are sure to surprise some viewers
+ Finally we get xxxHOLiC/Tsubasa connections

- If you've only watched the anime versions of Tsubasa (including Tokyo Revelations) you WILL NOT understand the plot fully.

:::I was wondering if Tsubasa Chronicle: Shunraiki would be good, after I have waited for it since Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations and my opinion is...it's just amazing!^^

:::The artwork is precise and even if there are only two episodes, you can see the difference in it between the two seasons of Tsubasa Chronicle and the OVAs.

:::The soundtrack is awesome as always and the op and the ending are very nice.

:::The characters are the same for all of you who have watched Tsubasa, but /especially if you are reading the manga/ you can see them more serious and everyone of them with his personal story in read more

Tsubasa Spring thunder is CLAMP's latest installment of their ever ongoing Tsubasa/HOLIC project. Following the exceptional work that was "Tokyo Revelations" even I was beginning to think I.G was the better choice for handling future Tsubasa projects.

With the announcement of Spring Thunder it was no surprise the various CLAMP fanatics began jumping for joy and same with some of the fans such as me. Now after watching both episodes, I have to say, this was a real let down.

Tsubasa Spring Thunder is the bad example of what happens when the original creator of the source read more

First off, know that I'm writing this review without reading the manga. But I've watched the two Tsubasa Chronicle series as well as the Tokyo Revelations.

As others have mentioned, This OVA is far off from what the anime series has been leading to so far. But if you watched Tokyo Revelations, things make sense.

Story (10/10)The story evolved from the simple 'travel from world to world' into complex connections and emotions between the characters. The very beginning might be a little confusing because of its connection to the manga plot but other than that, everything makes sense. Also we finally get some xxxHolic connections here (after read more
