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.

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.

...provided you read the whole thing in one go. (Ie: all 28 volumes within the course of a week or so, absolutely not more than 10 days between first volume and last...unless you have a good memory for minute details). Reading this the way most people read manga -- in instalments as they come out, sometimes with months in-between releases -- will give you no enjoyment whatsoever, since seemingly insignificant occurrences and random throwaway comments from very early volumes (where everything's cream and roses and there's no indication that you should pay special attention to what's happening) become important plot points towards the latter 1/4th of the series. Since I generally pay careful attention while reading, and because I'm familiar with Clamp's multiverse, I honestly didn't find anything here too hard to grasp, contrary to everyone's enraged claims. But then again, I love this kind of mindf***ery, so if you don't, do yourself and the series' rating a favour and stay away.

Nice art if you like the Clamp style (which, yes, is a different genre of art in and of itself), and the characters are exceedingly likeable -- the kind you really find yourself rooting for, despite the fact that they - the two MC's in particular - are pretty selfish (especially Syaoran, whose actions almost destroyed the space-time continuum itself). I really liked Fai and Kurogane: their motivations, so different from the romantic drive of the main pair, provided a great contrast that prevented the love story from becoming overwhelming. And Mokona's a darling, as always.

Don't let the light-hearted shenanigans of the first half of the journey fool you: Tsubasa - Reservoir Chronicle is a moderately dark manga with plenty of physical and psychological pain, grief, cruelty and sacrifice. (In other words, if you came here expecting Cardcaptor Sakura: The Second Season, you're going to be put off, even though this does retroactively connect to CCS) But keeping true to its demographic, things don't become nearly as twisted as this kind of premise could have.

On another note: It's definitely recommended that xxxHoLic be read immediately before/after or in parallel with TRC; if that notion irritates you, it'd be better to stay away from both series.

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.

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle has gotta be the most page-turning, epic, beautiful series I've ever read. The art is just great, and you can see the effort put into each panel and expression. Every single word and action is thought out to the last detail, and things you weren't expecting are gonna pop up again several volumes later.
If you're expecting all the fluffy cheerfulness of Cardcaptor Sakura, which contains the original counter-parts of the main characters Syaoran and Sakura... don't. It's fairly happy and cheerful up to about volume 15... if you still want your fluff, you're not gonna get it.
The amount of layers on each character is incredible, especially Fay D. Flourite (My all time favourite character) who turns out to be nothing like he first appeared. There's the unexpected everywhere, which includes clones, vampires, bloody battles and other.
It seems to have a shojo theme for a while, but believe me, wait 'til you're past at least volume 10... you won't be saying the same thing. The story gets darker every volume, and you keep your eye out for every odd little action that will have significance later on. Hint: Look out for panels which feature a glance from one of the characters, or panels which seem rather pointless... they're anything BUT pointless.

The story is quite nice, romance, comedy and fighting go very well together in this manga, but I would have wanted to see a bit of a change in the patterns in the different worlds. Always get 1 feather fight and leave.
But I would say it is worth reading
