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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

This is my first review. The first of several, I hope.
Four characters: Shaoran, the unconsciouss Sakura, the magician Fai and the ninja Kurogane, finds themselves thrown together by fate, sent on a journey to either finish a quest or furfill dreams.
This is the opening to CLAMP's latest epic tale, sometimes reffered to as a follow-up to Cardcaptor Sakura, more often reffered to as a crossover to xxxHolic.
It begins as any other manga would, four people with a mission. They face discoveries, dangers and soon become fond of each other, in their own way.
You ...

Tsubasa focuses on 4 main characters Fai, Kurogane, Sakura, and Syaoran. It's everything I want. Action, adventure, fantasy, and romance. It first sucked me in because I saw that it had the purest love I've ever seen. It shows that love when Syaoran sacrifices Sakura's memories of him. Throughout the whole entire manga Syaoran shows an unsaid love for sakura and sakura does the same for him that's seen in their actions rather than words.

The settings are varied and the character designs are always interesting. The places you see are unique and different, you see things like a magical castle and then ...

I'm not much of an expert but I'd still like my say,

Art:
about the art, in my opinion although they did do a good job, I found that I barely knew what was going, which is probably how it should be, but I was still disappointed, I had no idea where the characters were or how they were doing! In all honesty I did like the art in the beginning a little better since I knew what was happening and it gave enough detail that the pages were still stunning.

Plot:
I agree that the storyline is deep but after you reread things a few times ...

An absolutely amazing series no matter how you look at it. Hey, it's a CLAMP series. What do you expect?

The story is original, and is not at all boring or cliched. Not only that, the series is linked to xxxHOLiC, another CLAMP series. The story is filled with various worlds and characters from CLAMP's previous eighteen or so series, which tends to make it even more interesting for those of you who are CLAMP fans.

The art is amazing. Every character is drawn in their own unique way, and every detail is paid close attention to. Whether it's swirling cherry blossoms, feathers, shards of glass, or ...

THIS MANGA IS AMAZING! I truly love Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE from the bottom of my heart. Of the three literary works that have brought me to uncontrollable tears (the other two being Fruits Basket and Fred Weasley's death in Harry Potter 7) this was by far the best. There are few manga that can make you laugh and cry and at the end I wasn't left unsatisfied.

If you want a really good romance or action story this is for you. The characters are what make the story so amazing. There dynamism and relationships between the characters make this a story you can't put down. ...

This has got to be one of the most outstanding mangas I've read to date. Just when I thought I've grasped onto what was happening, something happens and I'm back on ground zero.

At first glance, I thought that TRC was another one of those "gotta catch em all" themed manga's but boy was I wrong. Everything has it's reason and it's up to us readers to pick it up. It gets incredibly dark as we learn about the characters past, to the point that it gets frightening in some cases.

A LOT of questions piled up while reading TRC, but towards the end ...

Cardcaptor Sakura, Clover, Chobits, RG Veda, and all the works of CLAMP put into one epic, emotional series? Count me in!

Whether you've read all of CLAMP's work, some of them, or none at all, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles ("Tsubasa" for short) is a stunning beautiful manga with something for everyone to love.

Overview: Two childhood friends (Syaoran and Sakura) find themselves in a twisted plot when Princess Sakura's memories are scattered throughout universes in the form of feathers. Both of their lives will never be the same again. Now, along with a fleeing, happy-go-lucky magician (Fai) with dark secrets, and a belligerent ninja (Kurogane) with a dark ...

Disclaimer: Might be reworked or edited later if I find stuff I've missed talking about. There are close to no spoilers in here but if there are I'll mark them as such.

Ever since I finished reading Pandora Hearts at the beginning of last year, I've asked myself if I'll ever find something that captivates me as much, something that resonates with me as much, and something that just blows me away as much as it did.
Now, I MIGHT be leaning myself a bit far out of the window, BUT I think I just found it. Is this really the one? Have I found ...

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle is the most in depth manga that I have read so far, the art work combined with the brilliant character development kept me hooked throughout. It follows a group of travellers Sakura, Syaoron, Fai, Kurogane and Mokona who travel from world to world on a mission to recover Sakura's memories. However the longer they travel more is revealed about the hidden motives behind their journey. It's not long before they uncover a sinister plot, with many hidden traps.

Story
I gave the story a 9 because at times it can be incredibly confusing. But that might just be me missing things. The plot is ...

Tsubasa is one of the best mangas i have read in a long time. the way it entertwins with xxxholic just amazes me. i always read it over and over again. I always find something else different once i read the story again. best best best xD

This manga (TRC in short) is a Masterpiece, yep, some of you thinks that this manga is a confusing manga because of the some sudden change of the events, but this manga is truly a masterpiece.

Story :9.5
They have a unique story, perfectly well written plot, plot twist are shocking, some are predictable

For concern i'm going to review some arcs, they are the last 7 arc, so there are some spoilers here so do not read this part if you hate spoilers

From my Point of View.....
Its really a hard to understand but thanks to a site.
well... It gave me a better understanding to this story....
I jump to this manga/anime because of my love of Cardcaptor Sakura.
Also the Anime Channel in our country....
The anime channel was Animax that gave me the info that CLAMP made "this" manga/anime with Syaoran and Sakura..... as one of their main characters. =>
well I'm a big fan of those two Superb cute Lovers..... so I gave all my effort to finish this manga... & also anime... ahahhaa

After read all the manga now I can write a review of this.

Story:

At the begining the stoy was so simple. Go to a journey to recolect oll the feather of Sakura. in 13 volumes this was the story. Too childish and inocent. Then in volume 14 all change and the story changes. More violence, more blood and a lot ofd secrets wew reveled. In this part, in tokyo saga the story was more exciting. I think this was a good thing.

Art. The art was good, but I think other mangas of CLAMP has a better art. Like magic knight rayearth. thats why I put ...

Story:
Quite addicting. It starts out slow, but once it gets going, it's really hard to put down. It would have earned a perfect score of 10 if not for the weird nonsense involving Syoaran's parents and the ending (which I thought was rather uninspired). I've even thought it through about Syoaran's parents, it makes no sense. But for the sake of this review being spoiler free, I won't put my assessment in. PM/message me if you want a full explanation with spoilers.

Art:
Not really a fan of this style, it has grown on me, but I still prefer Clamp's old style. It's not bad, just not ...

Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE is a very unique manga. It has a great story, which seems to be very usual, but chapter after chapter it just becomes so epic. It might be kinda hard to follow and complicated, but everything is explained so well in the end. Also this is the first manga that I fell in love with the art. I couldn't stop wathcing some images (and the color pic of course). The characters are so well drawn and each of them has he's\her's unique characteristiks, which makes this manga so enjoyable to read. Also I totally reccomend watching the anime but you gota ...
