Ok, I have to admit, this was really confusing. I mean, 4 or 5 clones, or hundreds of clones? I had to read that concept in the manga as well as wikipedia about 4 times to understand atleast part of it. It wasn't until it ended that I understood the story( i think i understood it). Too many twisted things. And in the end what did fei wong reed really want? Will someone explain?
And after a few chapters, the drawings were horrible. Thick and black shounen, I don't think I understood much of the scenes. I would simply read the dialogues and skip them. The drawing get better at the end though. People probably thought that XXX Holic would explain the part of Tsubasa, but the truth is Tsubasa explained why Watanuki ended like that and Yuko died in Holic.
Okay, now for the ending. why in the world can't Sakura travel along with Shaoran? Doesnt she love him? Or is she crazy? It torments me even now.
But in the end, I love it. Have to admit, I loved the love between clone Shaoran and Sakura. After they become parents, and even before, their love has been pure and mature. So it's beautiful. Overall, I like Tsubasa because it has been such a long journey and it feels like I've travelled with them. Oh, and I love Fai and Kurogane (they ought to give us a BL here!).

I love this manga! The plot is really well thought out, a bit confusing at parts, because it was quite complex. There were many twins\clones, but I didn't mind. I recommend this! The art is pretty, but best of all, CLAMP adds characters from their other works! That's so awesome, REALLY well thought out, they made use of the different dimensions. Really amazing, thought the ending didn't satisfy me, wish they made and extra or something ; A ; It was an okay ending.

Story: I picked it up thinking it would be cutesy and a quick read, then it went deeper halfway in and I fell in love with it. I actually got into this one enough that I could feel something for most of, if not all the characters. Yes it gets confusing at the end, but its really not that bad if you actually pay attention to it so I don't think it deserves these insanely low rating just because some people didn't understand it. I respect that, but that doesnt make it bad.

What really amazed me about the story, was its the first manga I came across that really used subtly. I can reread this countless times and pick something new up every time. Even the portions that seem unexplained make a lot more sense when you look back and go "oh so thats where that came from."


Characters: They may not be so original, but a cliche used well isnt always bad. All of them are charming in their own way. Clamp did wonderfully fleshing out the characters. As much as I hated Syaoran and Kurogane at first because they seemed so typical, the backstory is well done enough that Kurogane has become my favorite, and Syaoran is bearable.


Art: Love the style of it and there were many beautiful scenes, its not without imperfections but it keeps me captivated and still loving it after 200 chapters. I love how they put a lot of thought and work into the design side of things. They made sure the clothing fit into the setting so the scenes actually had a cohesiveness to them. As I mentioned above, there is subtleness to this manga, and Clamp succeeds in showing this in the characters faces, many times you can tell what a character is feeling not due to dialogue but purely because of the look in their eyes.

Overall. brilliant, it definitely becomes a 13+ around the middle, but I don't think you have a chance of grasping the story at the end if you are under 16. This contained enough fluff to be enjoyable, but if you are reading for just a cute story, I suggest going elsewhere.

I love the series but you need to know what exactly you're getting into when you start. There's prequels, side stories, alternate versions of EVERYTHING and I really think any new readers should be given a guide for this web of stories that eventually make sense when you're finished all of them.

New readers: can't help you very much but beware of the time and investment that goes into reading this series and understanding it fully.

I heard you like Tsubasa, so I took some Tsubasa from Tsubasa so you can go back in time and give birth to Tsubasa

All the clones/alternate people and crap were HELLA confusing towards the end. The sanity stops when the plot deepens not only because of the twists but... like I said, everything becomes goddamn confusing. It was better when they were just traveling around.

I really enjoyed reading this manga. Probably one of my favourites in fact. I picked it up after reading Cardcaptor Sakura because I loved the idea Syaoran and Sakura in an alternate universe. (These two will probably be one of my most favourite couples.) Like the commentor below me said, it starts out very light and happy with lots of comedy. Somewhere towards the middle it starts getting quite a bit darker. The characters are excently developed with lots of backstory. The only thing I could complain about was the end, I felt like it dragged on for quite some time. It was also quite confusing, but that's just me. My tine little brain just could not comprehend it all. Of course, if I come back and re-read it, I might find myself liking it a little more. If you're looking for a really light and comedy filled manga, I don't suggest reading this. Or if you do, I just suggest reading the first half because like I said, it does get quite darker later on in the series. Otherwise, the art is quite gorgeous and the story is wonderful, so I highly reccomend it.

The whole thing became a trainwreck in the end with the whole thing about the clones and stuff. Seriously, it was going well for some time but then it just kinda started getting confusing. Maybe it was the quality of the scanlations, maybe I just wasn't paying attention. But it seemed like they tried to drag it on for a long while and then all of a sudden end it and rushed out the rest of the plot points.
