Synopsis

"The world is a very small place, but for those who know it...it is very, very large. And the world, when it is viewed by those who 'know'—is far larger than just one world can hold!"

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 prophesied future. Sakura is the princess of Clow Country, and possessor of a strange power that promises to change the world. Syaoran is an aspiring archaeologist and her childhood friend. When Sakura is endangered by the plan a certain man has for the future, the princess' memories are scattered across dimensions in the form of feathers, and Syaoran is forced to go on a desperate journey to retrieve them. They are accompanied by Fay D. Flourite, a magician running from the horrible truth of his past, and Kurogane, a rough-mannered ninja trying to get back to his world. However, the ability to cross worlds demands a great price, and each of them must pay the Dimensional Witch with what he or she values most. In order to save his princess, Syaoran must give up his relationship with her. Even if he gathers all of Sakura's memories, she will never remember their past together...

But the world is not so simple. The very moment these four made this decision, their destinies are sealed into a tragic course...as everyone in the group has their own secrets. Visions of the future are seen, and prophesies are made. The cruel future which lies ahead reads only of betrayal, abandonment, devastation and anguish.

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

Story: The story is really original and is somewhat easi to follow even with all the different countries and character secrets you can keep in mind under the tale. I think its impossible to say that the story is bad no matter who you asks.

Art: Yea you have guesed it. Its really CLAMP art in Tsubasa but not negativ at all. all is shown really clear and pretty. I think most people know CLAMPS signature art but I have to say this is best together with xxxholic (:

Character: Gosh! you just cant keep yourself from feeling with all the different characters through the story. especially 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

tsubasa reservoir chronicles can be considered one of the most EPIC crossover series to date.

it is clamp's latest work, along with xxxholic (w/c is also amazing, btw). the two stories are connected, and although either can stand alone as its own series, it is also recommended that you read both to completely understand the story.

the opening plot is simple: the princess sakura has lost her memories and it is syaoran's task to get them back. along with a ninja who wants only to return home, and a mage who wishes never to go back (plus mokona, of course), they undertake the journey of read more
