The three-part Tokyo Revelations (2007) and two-part Spring Thunder (2009) continue the adventures Sakura, Syaoran, Kurogane, Fay, and Mokona from the shojo (girl's) adventure Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle(2005). Tokyo Revelations more or less begins where the broadcast series ended: The travelers land in world that's a ruined version of Tokyo, lashed by acid rains. While Sakura sleeps, her friends search for the Feather Mokona senses. Yuko reveals that the Syaoran viewers know is actually a clone, created by Fei Wang to find the enchanted Feathers. Now the real Syaoran has escaped, and immediately comes into conflict with himself. The clone Syaoran steals one of Fay's eyes, and with it half his magical powers. By moving through dimensions to different worlds, the travelers are fulfilling Fei Weng's plans to create the physical memories he needs. Spring Thunder takes place in the Country of Japan, ruled by Princess Tomoyo. The two Syaorans come into more violent conflict and the revelations continue to pile up. The second episode ends with the companions preparing to embark for the Country of Clow, to free the Princess from Fei Weng--a journey they can undertake thanks to information provided by Watanuki from xxxHOLIC. Presumably, further adventures are in the works. The extras include cast commentaries for all five episodes. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon (Tokyo Revelations: 1. The Magician's Message, 2. The Young Man's Right Eye, 3. The Princess' Dream)

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 23Mbps), Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle: OVA Collection offers a strong visual presentation, which benefits greatly from an animation upgrade over the prior television series. Although the anime studio responsible for the first two seasons of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles (Bee Train) was a division of Production I.G., they eventually split off to form their own independent studio, leaving future work on the series to others artists at the renowned parent company. Given the popularity of the series in Japan, I'd suspect Clamp and Production I.G. had no reservations in dedicating a higher budget to these follow-up episodes, and the results definitely show. I always found the animation on the original series a bit plain and static in comparison with other series of the same period, but these OVA's fall much closer to the quality of a theatrical release. Movement during fight sequences is fluid and stylish, background details offer greater depth, and lighting effects are handled with a touch more flair. If you happen to own either the "Collected Memories" box set, or the "Clamp Double Feature", and viewed the theatrical Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles film A Princess in the Birdcage Kingdom, you'll have an accurate representation of the animation quality found on this release.

Regarding the technical proficiency of this transfer, there's precious little to complain about. Detail is more than adequate for a high definition anime release; colors appear bold and striking (with the exception of the intentionally muted palette of outdoor sequences on Tokyo Revelations); and the depth of blacks is exceptional (allowing contrast a wide span between light and dark sections of the picture).

I really thought that this was a very good OVA. As someone who has finished reading the manga, I have to say they really got more of the "elements" of Tsubasa in this OVA then the ending of the Second Season. I won't go into detail but it is very intense and emotional for some of the characters and If you have a key eye for anything Clamp you will notice some Characters from X The TV series are in Tokyo Revelations and Spring Thunder living out alternate extistences. I also think that Funimation did a good dub on this. I do suggest after watching this you go out and read the Manga (It goes into detail on what happend after Tokyo Revelations and more detail into Fai's past)

All and all a very good OVA!

There is no doubt about it, the OVAs are much better than the anime series that had been filled with filler by Bee Train. Production I.G ,anime producer of Tsubasa The Movie and xxxHOLiC, returns to animate this award worthy series. Obviously, the OVAs were mostly made for Tsubasa manga followers (basically true Tsubasa fans) so don't watch the anime show together with this.

The voice work for both Japanese and English tracks was done very well and both are worthy of watching (don't forget the Commentaries).

Downside to this is that they skip a few arcs between Tokyo Revelations and Spring Thunder. The other downside is that Spring Thunder Chronicle should have been released together with xxxHOLiC: Spring Dream Chronicle as was done in Japan to see the other side of the story. (Watanuki makes a cameo in here!)

So yeah, this is a great collection for any Tsubasa/xxxHolic/CLAMP fan or for the average Anime fan. Hopefully Production I.G will continue to release more OVAs of the Tsubasa gang's continuing travels across dimensions in the future.

And don't forget about xxxHolic: Shunmuki and xxxHolic: Ro!
