Product Description

The fates shine upon young archeologist Syaoran and his life-long love, the princess Sakura. As the moon hovers silently above the kingdom a beautiful and otherworldly sound fills the air, drawing the princess to the ancient ruins. Her latent powers stir, awakening an ability to cross dimensions. But the process is interrupted as unseen forces conspire to claim this magic as their own. Sakura’s soul is sent adrift across the universe, each memory a feather dancing through the stars. Syaoran will make heroic sacrifices to track down the remnants of her soul… With fellow travelers Kurogane and Fai, a warrior and a wizard, an epic quest begins.

The Season 1 set contains volumes 1-6.

The shojo (girl's) series Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle offers new adventures for the characters from the Clamp Studio's popular Cardcaptor Sakura. Sakura is now the princess of the Kingdom of Clow; Syaoran is the dedicated son of an archaeologist. When a mysterious power seizes Sakura in an ancient temple, her spirit appears as a pair of graceful white wings that shatter, sending the feathers of her memories flying through time and space. Syaoran must recapture them or Sakura will die. Launched on their journey by Yuko the Dimensional Witch, Syaoran and Sakura are joined by three new characters: the rabbitlike Mokona; Kurogane, a hot-tempered warrior who served Princess Tomoyo; and Fay, a wizard who resembles Kaoru in Evangelion. As the travelers move from world to world searching for the Feathers, they help the inhabitants they encounter. After defeating the evil magician Tambal, Syaoran presents Sakura with a Feather of memory. She can't see him in the birthday party she recalls, only his empty chair: he can restore all her memories except the ones of him. The enhanced color and clarity of the Blu-ray process showcases the imaginative visuals in Tsubasa. When Kurogane blindfolds Syaoran to teach him to rely not on his vision but on his inner senses when fighting with a sword, the artists suggest his sightless world with reversed colors and evocative music. In one striking sequence, a character uses a Feather to cause the world of Outo to implode, revealing it's just a virtual reality game. These adventures are entertaining, but the filmmakers suggest that Sakura, Syaoran, and their friends may just be pawns in a greater struggle between Yuko and the mysterious Fei Wang and his assistant Xing Huo. Tsubasa is a picaresque tale that plays more like Fullmetal Alchemist than Cardcaptor Sakura, but Clamp fans will enjoy the mixture of enchantment, romance, adventure, and self-sacrifice.

Each character is complex yet easy to identify with.
Katelyn
Like all the other CLAMP animes this story has great animation and music, as well as a really good story line.

As fans of the manga know, Tsubasa goes through several different stages. This set of it's animated version corresponds to the getting-to-know-the-characters stage which often played out as a shounen tournament series.

A quick briefer for those unfamiliar with the story: The memories of a teenage, alternate universe version of Cardcaptor Sakura's title character are scattered into different dimensions in the form of feathers, and she will die if enough of them are not retrieved. Under the auspices of xxxHOLiC's Yuko, her true love Syaoran is joined by two adult guardians - a ninja named Kurogane and a magician named Fai, who are also traveling for different reasons - as they jump across dimensions to complete the task, meeting other alternate universe versions of CLAMP characters along the way. But as Holic fans know, Yuko must always extract a price whether she would or no - and unbeknownst to Sakura, the price Syaoran has paid is the permanent loss of her memory of their relationship.

Tsubasa's main strength is the relationships which eventually develop between the four leads rather than the feather quest of the week or CLAMP cameos, which of course means that the inital arcs in which the characters haven't yet become close will probably never be considered among it's best. It also doesn't help that the majority of the padding material common to long running manga-based anime is focused here on the quest and guest stars rather than the extremely engaging four leads. Still, this set includes hints of the character development to come as Syaoran slowly earns Kurogane's respect and both kids - but Sakura in particular - start to bring out Fai's protective instincts.

I brought this series after watching xxxHoltic and really liking it. I was a bit let down though. I can understand the reason for the series being set up the way it was and a search for the pieces of a person's soul thru many worlds is a good story idea, but... This only works if the series and any additional series have an ending in mind and not just a greedy person looking for a power and manipulating the heroes. The first series isn't all that bad, but it sets of a "never ending" search idea which I had trouble with. At least a search needs a certain goal. Like, let's say, how many feathers are in her soul, or maybe more about when the search reaches an end. You get some of this but not enough. Plus you don't get enough on the villians either. I generally like the series and the adventures were great enough. You get a cliff hanger ending with no firm idea of how much is ahead and this is bit of a let down to me.

I owned the original DVD release of Tsubasa when it was released by Funimation. While I enjoyed the series on my older TV, the video didn't look so great when I purchased and watched it on my 42 inch Plasma TV. When it was announced that the series was coming out on Bluray, I immediately purchased a copy and I have to say that the picture is absolutely gorgeous at 1080p. In addition, this series is a bargain at $30 at amazon, while the original series cost me well over $100 dollars. If you have a HD TV and a Bluray player, get this series. You won't be disappointed.

Syaoran is a young archeologist and Sakura is the princess of the Clow kingdom. hey are childhood friends. One day while looking at the Clow country ruins Sakura activates a magic circle that scatters her memories throughout the different dimensions. Without her memories, Sakura will die. Syaoran must travel through the dimensions with Sakura and some other friends to save her memories before Sakura passes away.

This is another great animation by CLAMP. Like all the other CLAMP animes this story has great animation and music, as well as a really good story line. The main voice actors are Chris Sabat, Jason Liebrecht, Vic Mignogna, Monica Rial, and Carrie Savage. So the voice acting is very good. This anime has a very different plot that is emotional and touching. All the different worlds the character travel to are interesting and magical. So it feels like there are a bunch of mini stories going on inside the main one. All the characters pasts and reasons for taking the journey are also covered in pretty much detail. It's a hard call, but I think this is my favorite CLAMP anime. I hope you watch it and love it as much as I do.

This is another winner from the CLAMP team - who brought the anime nation wonderful titles such as Magic Knight Rayearth, XXXholic, Cardcaptors, Chobits, X, and many more. As soon as i found out Tsubasa was from CLAMP i knew it was another addicting series that was about to unfold.
Many anime fans will know Sakura from Cardcaptors and this is another series that deals with this character.
During a ritual of some kind Sakura accidentally loses the shards to her heart that are now scattered through time. So her semi-boyfriend Syaoran must travel through time & space to recover them.
This sends the duo on many battles through time, which kinda reminds me of Dragon Ball Z in that they are trying to retrieve something. This is a really great series and unfortunately only lasted about two seasons. I think this box set is heavily over-priced but definitely worth picking up when it's on sale.
