Ahhhh, what can I say about this old friend of mine?

I first attempted to read Tsubasa in middle school and dropped it around volume 9-- I thought it was too boring. Years and a re-reading later, I have realized that this was NOT the right reason to dislike this series.

Many people say, "This is CLAMP", and that is justification enough for whatever compliments/complaints that they have about Tsubasa. I disagree. I have yet to discern any pattern among their many publications. The art in this manga is absolutely captivating and uniquely detailed; however, having read Man of Twenty Faces and Cardcaptor Sakura, I can say that their art has not already been award-deserving.

The concept behind this manga is fantastic. A cast of four characters hailing from three divergent worlds, Sakura, Syaoran, Fai D. Flourite, and Kurogane possess different goals but embark on the same journey to collect Sakura's "feathers", or her memories. They travel through myriad dimensions, encounter benevolent friends and nefarious villians. It starts off adventurously refreshing; by volume 15, however, you'll realize a sudden turn towards macabre truths and darkness.

Where is the issue, then? As others have mentioned, this series gets seriously confusing. I mean this with every ounce of integrity and emphasis I own. The explanation for the antagonist's actions are enough to make your head spin figuratively; the chronological warp made me physically dizzy. At the end, I wondered if it was truly my lack of intellect/deduction skills that caused my inability to process CLAMP's explanation. But having read other criticisms, I've concluded that this is more of an error on the mangakas' behalf. It's no fun to spell out every letter for your audience, and I understand that a bit of mind-warping can add some exciting zest. But the confusing elements within Tsubasa almost made the rationale seem... poorly written.

I have yet to read each and every of CLAMP's works, but with the exception of xxxHolic, none of the ones I've read thus far (Chobits, Legend of Chun Hyang, etc.) have been particularly memorable. I've found that despite the critical acclaim, CLAMP is not the best in storytelling.

Nonetheless... I fully recommend reading this manga. 100%. Yes, I wish the explanations were more convincing and less frustrating. But I see manga as more about the journey than the destination. I thoroughly enjoyed traveling to different dimensions with these four dynamic characters. The ending isn't half bad-- of course it's not a happily-ever-after conclusion, but given the gravity of the series, I didn't come to expect that. I will say that it felt a bit abrupt, so that's why my rating is an eight. If you ignore CLAMP's explanation and come up with your own, less-confusing rationale, you might just give this series a ten.

Tsubasa was my introduction to good manga, so I might be biased, but when I try to look at it from an objective view, I still love it. It's a great manga with great drawings, an amazing plot, and almost god-like execution. It provides a good base for why everything happens; the spark that begins the story is rooted in romance and gives a little romance through out the story while still not overdoing it (like so many manga's do) and still contains lots of action and adventure. Tsubasa is a wonderfully balanced manga that never grows boring or repetitive, and is a magnificent work of art.

I haven't finished the series yet so my opinion may change.

Thus far, however, this has been the best manga I have ever read. I love all the characters; even the bad guys because they have believable, human characterization. The story is very touching and quite sad, but at the same time constant humor is found. All the fantasy elements are intriguing and creative.
To top that all off: the art is just AMAZING.

I just love love love it.

The Good:
The art of course is wonderful as to expect of any Clamp manga. The story twisted and turned still Clamp's signiture as well. I felt this manga held my intrest at first it was bright(not to over the top happy fluffy) to dark and acidy the mood matching the atmosphere. I felt that the characters background where layouted out perfectly so that you understood where each character came from.

The Bad:
As with any Clamp hard to understand and follow at some points. I felt that the ending was rushed and could have been longer or better plotted out compared to how well the rest was thought out.

This manga has plenty of action of action lovers. A good bit of romance. I would recommend to any regulars in manga as an intresting manga worth time.

CLAMP's masterpiece

Without a doubt in my opinion this is CLAMP's greatest work, though xxxHOLiC is yet to end. Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles is simply amazing, especially when it gets darker from the Acid Tokyo arc onwards. I like it before that too but afterwards it it gets simply amazing. The revelations and twists in the plot are totally unexpected and everything turns out in a both rediculous and ordered way. The complex relationships and the character development are extraordinary. I won't spoil anything from the contents though I'm sure pretty much everyone that reads this comment already has read the manga too.
You should have some background reading other CLAMP manga or waching animes based on clamp manga to get more of the story. Especially "Card Captor Sakura" and "X"

First thing: I love Clamp. Their series is usually wonderful. NOT this one though, Tsubasa start out quite good with nice art but then it turn out to be very very long story compared to other Clamp's series like Clover or Chobits or Angelic. Tsubasa feel more like Inuyasha

With disconnected section, lots of fillers, random nonsensical twists, even if you like long series, Tsubasa is on the verge of being what i call "a blabbering-on-series."

In short: Along series might be worth to check out, but prepare to feel tired of the long, random plot.
