Nothing much happens in this episode in terms of development or character establishment (if there wasn’t a Clow Card in these types of episodes, I would call them [good] filler), but it was extremely fun nonetheless. The episode title is “Sakura’s Little Adventure” – which is a great title, I see the pun there – but if I were to rename it, “Honey, I Shrunk Sakura“ would be it.

Seriously, I think my inner Cardcaptor Sakura fanboy just squealed in excitement seeing that little CCS!Sakura cameo in this episode. <3 Wait… a CCS!Sakura cameo? What the hell were they thinking?! THAT’S JUST TOO F*CKING AWESOME! >D

Finally… Real!Syaoran enters the dream world using Seishirō’s reality-altering feather to recover Sakura’s soul (and we find out that Seishirō was going to give Syaoran the feather anyway and was just messing with him lol). However, Clone!Syaoran warps into that dimension too (and as he was entering the dream world, Watanuki, in yet another short connection to ×××Holic, disappears from it) and demands Real!Syaoran to hand over the feather to him.
After a tremendous battle… Real!Syaoran is now in flames and is on the verge of death (;;), with Sakura yelling “SYAORAN!!!” (notice the lack of suffix? T_T *is a Clone!SyaoranxSakura fan*).
At first glance, it seems Clone!Syaoran definitely has no hopes of returning to the way he was before the seal on his right eye was broken after this stunt (;;) . However… (SPOILERS AHEAD)

During the search for Sakura’s body (which was separated from her soul in chapter 149), we finally find out the truth about Fay’s past.
And I must say, Fay’s past has got to be one of the most gruesome origins out of all the characters in Tsubasa.

FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for this ever since it was announced. After the sham which was the Tsubasa Chronicle second season, I’m glad to say that these OVAs are giving the manga series some justice.

A new Tsubasa OVA animated by Producting IG (the company that animated the movie and xxxHoliC. Yay!) has been officially annouced. It will be about 3 episodes, with each episode included with each new manga volume starting 11/21/07.
1) The Magician’s Message
1st DVD w/ TRC volume 21 regular edition – out Nov 21, 2007, 3360 yen
(includes a storage case for all 3 with a new illustration)
2) The Boy’s Right Eye
2nd DVD w/ TRC volume 22 regular edition – out Jan 17, 2008, 2980 yen
3) The Dream the Princess Saw
3rd DVD w/ TRC volume 23 regular edition – out Mar 17, 2008, 2980 yen
We get to see the Acid Tokyo arc done properly (finally, we get to see the Real!Syaoran and our Syaoran’s psychopathic clone nature in action, animated!), probably with all the blood intact. I’m kind of worried about the character designs though, since I wasn’t very happy with the (sort of) distracting character designs in the movie. I hear they say the art is going to differ from the manga too… not giving me a good feeling.
On the bright side, I’m also confident about the animation since they’re no longer confined to NHK’s broadcast standards. ^^;
Title: Tsubasa Chronicle
Adapted from: Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- (Manga)
Production: BeeTrain, Production IG (movie)
The story is a crossover using lots of characters from past series made by CLAMP.
“Syaoran, a boy who wants to become an archeologist, and Sakura, a princess from the Clow Kingdom, are childhood friends with a close relationship. On a fateful night, Sakura lost all her memories as a result of a conspiracy to obtain her powers. In order to regain her memory, Syaoran seeks help from the witch, Yuuko. Yuuko tells Syaoran that he has to travel from one alternate reality to another to collect fragments of Sakura’s memory. However, even if Sakura regains her memory, she will have no recollection of Syaoran. Travelling together with them is Kurogane, a warrior who was exiled from his country, and Fye, a magician who wants to escape from his King. With the help of a magical creature, Mokona, they set off on an exciting journey through time and space.”
As a CLAMP fan, I quite enjoyed Tsubasa, yes. Or at least, the manga… the anime, however, left much to be desired. (;
