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.Read more ›
Characters and Plot: (minor spoilers only) The Kingdom of Clow is a desert world filled with sand and wind. There is where we meet Syaoran (pronoced Sa-ow-ron) a young archeologist who is friends with the princess of the kingdom. Princess Sakura is friends with Syaoran. They are on a date per say, falling inlove Sakura said she will tell Syaoran that she loves him but she is interupted and needs to go back to the castle so it would have to wait. Later that night while working at the ruins Syaoran sees princess Sakura who seems to be in a trance. When she goes deeper into the ruins Syaoran tries to stop her the floor lights up and then Sakura's memories fly out from her body in the form of feather. Mystfied at this Syaoran is met by the ruleing king's advisor and priest Yukito tells Syaoran if he really cares for princess Sakura he will travel to another demention. Confused because demention traveling didn't seem possible in this world Syaoran and Sakura are travling to another demention. While that is happen in a completely different world called Japan (yes the whole world is Japan) we meet a warrior called Kurogane who is being forcefully transported to another demention by the ruler Princess Tomoyo because she wishes for him to get stronger and except he wishes not to go and is whisked away agents his will angerly.

So when all 3 demention travelers get to the demention they are sent to, they end up on Earth outside the shop of Yūko Ichihara.Read more ›
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.
