Plot/Story
"In this parallel world of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, The characters of popular CLAMP manga's are present, including Sakura and Syoaran of Card Captor Sakura, Mokona from Magic Knight Rayearth and various other characters!.

It is a adventurous journey for Syaoran, Fye and Kurogane, to travel while fulfilling their destiny's and to find Sakura's lost memory, encased in feathers spread to every world imaginable!"

Basically, Sakura is a princess of a Kingdom, and Syaoran is her childhood friend. A boy who was abandoned at a young age, he became a trusted friend of the royal family. But when Sakura is at a state of death, Syaoran is willing to give anything to save her. Thats where he meets Yuuko(From xxxHOLIC's storyline, they intertwine), and she is willing to save Sakura, but as always, for a price. It seems that the price was the cost of her memories. But Yuuko tells Syaoran he can get hermemories back as they are absorbed into magical feathers. So he, along with Sakura and new comrades, Fye and Kurogane, travel from dimension to dimension to retreive her memories.
Characters
Not exactly the same characters from CCS, or the various mangas the characters are derived from but they are pretty similiar. Same characters, no magical powers(or yet? maybe? !!) but in another dimension. Each character has been slightly touched upon, with the past and present, but perhaps there will be more information later on.
Drawing Style
It's CLAMP. Their beautiful style and drawings always fascinate me. Good work ladies!!
Enjoyment
I loved CCS, and seeing Sakura and Syaoran makes me all "hoooo!!" and "punyan~~" , and TRC is unique in a few ways but alway maintain CLAMP's storyline and details.
Overall
I love TRC. I love CLAMP. They rock.

Yes I'm biased but give it a try :)

I Love It! by TwistedFlower on February 24th, 2008, 10:42am Rating: 5

One of my favorite mangas but it's going in an odd direction now...
 
Bias indeed by Xeronia on September 22nd, 2007, 4:04pm Rating: 4

I say that this is bias. But remember, reviews are opinions. Clearly, Coriolis likes TRC, and has a right to. It is a great series.
 
Wow... nice advertisement! LOL by BluezAce on July 13th, 2007, 4:29pm Rating: 5

Hahaha... yeah, it's a advertisement indeed ^^! However, since this manga is damn good (for all aspects), no matter what you said it'll be still a worthy manga to read/buy/borrow/even steal it!
