The famous CLAMP brings back the characters from all their creations for an ultimate showdown in this multi-dimensional tale.

This is the story of four travelers, bound by fate and by a treacherous journey. Sakura is the princess of Clow Kingdom, and possessor of a strange power that promises to change the world. Syaoran is an aspiring archaeologist and her childhood friend. When a powerful but elusive figure decides to use Sakura's abilities for his own ends, her memories take the form of feathers and scatter across countless dimensions, and Syaoran is forced to go on a desperate journey to retrieve them.

While seeking help from the Dimensional Witch, Syaoran and Sakura meet two more strange travelers. They are Fay D. Flourite, a magician fleeing his home world and his past, and Kurogane, a rough-mannered ninja trying to return to the home from which he was banished. They agree to accompany Syaoran on his quest so they can begin their own.

However, the ability to cross worlds demands a great price, and each of them must pay the Dimensional Witch what they value most. Longing to restore the princess to her old self, Syaoran agrees to pay that which he values most to save her—their relationship. Even if he gathers all of Sakura's memories, she will never remember their past together...

But the very moment the group forms, their destinies are sealed into a tragic course. True motives surface, affections shift, and prophesies become real. The future reads only of betrayal, abandonment, and devastation—unless the mismatched travelers can change it.


Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE was published in English by Del Rey from April 27, 2004 to November 23, 2010. Kodansha Comics USA republished the series in 10 omnibuses from August 19, 2014 to October 18, 2016.

Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE-, often shortened for the sake of convenience to "Tsubasa", is one of the newest additions to a large body of work by world-renowned manga studio CLAMP. After 6 years of faithfully following this series' serialization, I have come to the conclusion that it is nothing short of a masterpiece.

~STORY~: Tsubasa has an original and fresh story under its belt, which is to be expected from a CLAMP work. The main antagonist (Fei Wong Reed) causes a desert princess (Sakura) to lose all of her memories in order to achieve his dream. Her childhood friend (Syaoran) is forced to go to the Space-Time read more

I've probably taken about 5 years to actually read this whole manga, but a month ago I decided I wanted to finally read it in full alongside its sister manga, xxxHolic. As a long-term fan of CLAMP, I knew what I was getting into - and yet I'm sitting here now, very breathless but kind of confused.

The first half of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle was absolutely amazing (up to and including Acid Tokyo, for sure). I could probably rate it 10/10 even if I included all the occasional arcs that felt a little too much like filler, as all these arcs were absolutely necessary to the read more

The story started out very simple and easy enough to follow--travel the worlds, find the feathers, cute romance-y moments etc. Then everything hits the fan and at first you're like, "Oh, cool, this is actually serious!" Unfortunately, being serious can only be so good for so long when suddenly, EVERYTHING is dark and depressing and there is NO RAY OF HOPE. The story also becomes extremely confusing and hard to follow when the same plot device is used again and again. Everything seems to drag on because of these two negative factors, and so what was a cute and adventurous series turns into... something rather read more

Story: 10/10

Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE begins very simply. A princess's memories have been stolen by a vilian, the band of adventurers gathered, and the journey begun. Crossing the dimensions, they pick up one feather after another against long odds through determination and teamwork. Meanwhile the vaguely evil villain smiles slyly from the safely contemplating his vaguely evil plans. A generic shounen plotline, essentially.

Then it happens. Everything changes, as you find out everything you thought was true was a lie. Our team of heroes will never be the same again. Betrayals, deaths, and unimaginable horrors await. New heroes appear and the storyline changes course again and again. read more
