Reviews Tsubasa

  • Alena
    (This review applies to the whole manga series, rather than the first volume.)Don't be fooled by the cute, light-adventure facade the first volume of this series projects. There is plot coming, and it will hit like a truck.Many readers find it hard to connect with Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE at first look, because the actual story starts out a bit slower than the dramatic teaser at the opening of the first chapter. It feels a bit like a bait-and...

    OK, I plowed through all 28 volumes of this initially in an effort to make sense of xxxHolic. Which, eventually, it sort of did. What I am to use to make sense of Tsubasa, I don't know. Well, Wikipedia, I suppose, but even it only becomes comprehensible after one has read the thing maybe twice.I had actually, as usual, started with the anime, but it does not go all the way to the end of the tale, and it skipped some parts I'd been especially curi...

    First volume review So I started to Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. The main reason was that it is well known, classic manga and loved by almost everyone. So I decided to turn to it. I liked the first chapter but to be honest, it was a bit confusing. This dimension-hopping thing is new to me, also the characters were introduced quickly. But at the end of the volume I got interested in the story. Syaoran and Sakura friendship was cute at the beginni...

    You want to have your brain fried? then I suggest you read Tsubasa. CLAMP is super clever in taking the two main protagonist from their other work: Cardcaptor Sakura, a favourite of mine. So, duh, I was pretty much sucked in like *that*. But, I didn't read Tsubasa straight after it was released in Thailand, I was too busy obsessing over something else at that time but one of my friends was hooked on it (but never got to the end because it became ...
  • Karaoke OK
    [Series Length: 19 volumes / Read: volumes 1-6]World-renowned mangaka circle CLAMP has basically phoned it in with "Tsubasa". Basically just a lame excuse to re-visit old characters from previous CLAMP titles in new settings, the story revolves around an alternate version of Syaoran (originally of "Card Captor Sakura" fame) going dimension-hopping with a magician and warrior from one random world to the next, all to recover the memories of Sakura...
  • Ana Encinas
    Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, primer tomo escrito por CLAMP. Una historia muy interesante, en el que encontraremos personajes de otras de las historias más famosas de las autoras, con una trama muy novedosa e intensa, en el que Syaoran deberá encontrar partes del alma de la princesa Sakura antes de que sea demasiado tarde, pero no estará solo en esta aventura, por lo que será más llevadera toda la presión y la carga. Este primer tomo me ha f...

    This is a fantasy quest journey and most of all a love story. Childhood friends, Princess Sakura and Syaoran, the son of a famous archeologist, meet up again after seven years apart. The royal family offered Syaoran a place in their home after his father died, but he felt that, as a commoner, he couldn’t. Now Syaoran has established a name for himself in the archeological field and returns to the land of Sakura’s kingdom. When Sakura visits t...
  • Erin
    Sometimes authors/creators will take the characters they use in one story and then place them in a totally diff. one with a alternate universe storyline going on. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Tsubasa is one that works. Very well.With a pretty original plot driving the series and familiar characters being developed in an alternate but convincing way, the CLAMP writers have made a manga I immediately loved.Can't really explain why b...
  • Star Lord
    The story is very entertaining and the characters are well-developed and it has a good beginning.
  • JM
    This review is for volumes 1-7.YA fantasy manga. This is a companion/crossover series with xxxHolic. Syaoran and Sakura have been the closest of friends since they were children. Now Sakura has been attacked, and her memories scattered as feathers across the multiverse. Without her memories, she'll die. Syaoran goes to Yuuko, the Dimension Witch, for a way to save her, and is given a creature who will act as a guide through the dimensions: but Yu...

    I've been meaning to read this for a while but never got the time to. Took my history test few hours ago and I deserve this break. Lol.Binge reading is a thing. Reading this, nostalgia hits like a truck. All the characters are familiar where all it take is a little recall. I don't think I mind alternate dimensions though most reviewers are disgruntled over the fact that the characters are not the same as before. I think they are at the very core ...
  • Veronica Bejarano
    Fue un deleite saber que habían hecho una historia con todos los personajes de Clamp que tanto habíamos extrañado, más los de X by Clamp, que los había extrañado mucho y esperé tanto para verlos como Tsubaru y Seichirou Sakurazukamori. Al buen estilo de Clamp, se dice que continuaría la historia y no me canso de leerla porque es definitivamente una de las obras que más personajes Clamp ha reunido.

    I can't even say how much I love these books. For some reason I always thought that the first book was boring when I was younger; after reading it again I can't believe that I ever thought that. It's a beautiful start to a beautiful series.

    This starts with a bit of a bang, and picks up pace quickly. The art is traditional Clamp style, very easy to follow for the most part, and the story is interesting. I like the way Clamp is bringing in characters from their past works. I would suggest looking into the series these characters come from, and their is a convenient list in the back that says where they came from. That being said, you can enjoy it without having read those series, as ...
  • Stephanie - Adventures Thru Wonderland
    A well written, and fun story. I've seen this around before, but never heard anything about it. I love the art style though, and had to give it a try! Inside and out, the artwork is amazing, and the story is just as entertaining! I love the characters, Syaoran and Sakura are both likeable, and Fei and Kurogane are great together! I also enjoyed the side characters, and the setting is easy to imagine, yet unique enough to hold my attention. I will...

    Tsubasa is just wonderful. It's a cleverly written manga with likable characters and a fun journey for readers to travel. This manga is one of CLAMP's finest work yet. This is a manga where you need to read most (if not all) of CLAMP's previous works in order to get some of the references placed in this manga. As a whole, this series is fantastic. As a first volume, it is just wonderful and endearing. Syaoran and Sakura are the main characters (f...

    Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE by CLAMP is a companion series to xxxHolic. As I'm reading xxxHolic I feel obligated to try Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE.Volume 1 sets up the story. Syaoran and Sakura (who are alternates from the ones in Card Captor Sakura) have grown up together. Syaoran is an archeologist's son and Sakura is a princess, the younger sister of the king. A freak accident at the archeological dig results in Sakura losing her memories a...

    I'd been putting off picking this series up for a while, what with it being a kind of cross-over with a number of CLAMP's other series, and in general I'm opposed to cross-overs because to some level I find there to be a certain laziness about them. But, I picked this up, and while reading was happy to discover that these aren't simple carbon copies of the character's alternative selves. Instead, CLAMP took the basic idea of each character from t...
  • Yuu Sasih
    I would rate and review this book for all of the volumes--all 28 of them.At first, what intrigued me was the fact that Sakura and Syaoran from CCS were back in somehow different adventure. But when I was read it, I was totally wrong.This story told about the whole new adventure that have no--or just slight--connection from CCS. In this story CLAMP managed to gathered all of the character they've been made and put them into different role--paralle...
  • Terri
    One of my favorite manga series to date. It spans 28 volumes, and is one of the most mindbending, brain torturing series ever. Just when you think you know what's happening, CLAMP reveals another piece of the puzzle. The series finished serializing a year ago, and this week I reread the whole thing. Even now, I'm still trying to put the pieces together. Definitely recommended!TRC takes the characters from CardCaptor Sakura and pulls them through ...
  • Lauren
    I'm rereading this series, because I never finished it and when I went to the bookstore the other day, I saw it was complete. I got about halfway through and then got so busy with school that I lost track. Which is a shame because this series is amazing and Syaoran is my favorite character ever. If you've ever read any of CLAMP's other manga (which you should), you have to read this one, too. It's a great story, plus it's intertwined with so many...
  • Selena
    This series is like skipping through the "Life and Times of CLAMP." Which is a good thing.And the translators notes? Excellent. Read them. It will help. This series and its crossover, xxxHolic, use many Japanese cultural details foreigners might not know about, and the notes help. The notes also help explain things with the crossover readers might not realize if they don't follow both series at the same time.It's fun. The series gets confusing at...
