This is an anime that comes from a group of women that have written manga for almost 30 years now.  It was an orginal work that was created along side of another manga called xxxholic.  While the anime's of these two don't cross over, the creaters of the anime tried to keep it true to its origins.  The problem being, it loses something along the way.   At the same time, the premise behind the story is very reminiscent of the time it was created.  The slow pacing is a very nineties and early two thousand style, and while the newer animes go at a faster pace, this style makes you immerse into the story more, and live less for the action and the shock value.  Its what divides most watchers from saying "Eh, its okay." to "This is one of the best anime I've ever seen!" Story: 8 Its an original idea and one that interacts with its second half, xxxholic, well.  The problem being that it seems just like a crossover anime and that's the only point to it.  The problem with saying that is that it does technically have a plot, get the feathers from other worlds, and that all of Clamp's stories are like that.  They all appear in many of their stories, not just in Tsubasa Chronicle.   The plot twists in there do get you when you least expect it, but in this particular series it is more of a trailer for the manga, and the true plotcentric story is in its predecessor, Tsubasa Chronicle Tori.  Its still original and has specific arcs that shows the characters growing as it continues on, instead of staying the same person over the entire series.  Just be prepared that it never technically ends, you would have to read the manga, or watch the other series. Animation: 6 Remember that this is a mid 2005 series and it is a clamp series.  Clamp tends to keep their characters very simplistic and have the long legs and not well drawn hands.  Their action sequences tend to be quick and not have very realistic movements.  However, they are great at backgrounds and any imaginary animals and beings.  The reason for this is that there are more than one artist so they keep things that all of them will work on simplistic and the individual are beautiful. Sound: 6 Its a very deep, instrumental, and dramatic soundtrack.  While those are all beautiful and really help in making their series darker, there are moments of humor and there tends to not be a sound track for it.  If there is, it is a very calm and somewhat happy sound.  While it is a great sound for those that know what is happening, it is not a very good soundtrack for keeping attention to new watchers or those that can't keep their attention on anime. Character: 10 I'm going to try not to give spoilers, but the characters in the series grow, and you see how they became who they are as the series progresses.  They are all deep, and all have their reasons for why they do the things they do, especially the main four characters.  While you may think that Syaoran and Sakura are the same characters from Cardcaptor Sakura, you would be severely disappointed.  They are older, and while they do share that Sakura is optimistic and that Syaoran is serious, that's about as far as it goes.  Kurogane and Fye also have a deep history and you catch glimpses of it at the beginning, and technically you never find out their whole story in this season, but towards the end, you get a much bigger glimpse into who they are. Enjoyment: 8 The series can be lighthearted, but also have a darkness that only clamp can create.  The humor is good if you understand some japanese idioms, and the story goes along at a moderate pace.  I wouldn't say this series is for anyone, I would say this is for someone who enjoys characters and watching how they change, rather than watching it for what you might think the plot is.  Because lets be honest, you don't think its all about finding some memory feathers, do you? Overall: 7 While I enjoy this anime, I know that this series isn't for everyone.  Some people just want to see a plot, others want to see mindless characters.  Tsubasa Chronicles mixes it while showing that all of their worlds that they create are connected in some way.  I also know that to truly understand what is going on, you would have to read the manga, or have read xxxholic, which detracts from the anime as well. All in all, its a good anime for those that want just a couple of story arcs with characterization and some good plot twists.  If you want to see a great story, you read the manga.  If you want amazing animation and drawing styles, then clamp isn't the right fit for you.

This anime has parts that make you want to stop watching because all you want is for Syaouran and Sakura to get married have children and live happily ever after. But no. Just give me another season. Please

Podría haber sido un excelente anime, si la adaptación del manga hubiera sido mejor. Aun así, es una serie para ver y disfrutar.
