It's been almost a year since I first had the chance to look at Tsubasa, and the agonising wait for an English publication has been well worth the pain.
Put simply, this is one of the best mangas the four-women team has put out. The characters are engaging, varied and pull at the heart strings like nothing else. The illustrations are CLAMP at their best and the storyline (travelling through alternative realities to find the 'feathers' of Sakura's memory) is truly imaginative.
In this volume alone there are links to several of CLAMPS' well-known mangas, such as xxxHoLic, Chobits, Magic Knight Rayearth, X/1999 and RG Veda.
Del Rey, newcomers to the manga game, have produced one of the best graphic novels I've ever seen. Colour pages, cultural reference explanations, synopsis', character profiles, and previews of both xxxHoLiC and the second volume of Tsubasa (in Japanese!)... In addition, the translation is a marvel and even the honorifics are retained.
Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE is a must not just for CLAMP and Cardcaptor Sakura devotees, but for all manga fans with a love of a great story.

This is one of the best value manga books you can buy. It's nice and thick, a good size and has lots more extras than you normally get in a manga.
It reads in the proper right to left format and the translation is great, they've kept in the Japanese honourifics (with translation notes) And explain where the various Clamp cameos come from.
Onto the manga itself, I think a better title would have been 'Clamp Cameo Resevoir'. Though it's a well paced Shounen manga with lots of action and beautiful artwork that will appeal to a lot of people on it's own, it becomes far more interesting if you've read other Clamp manga. Not only does it cross over with XXXHolic, but it is also brim full of characters from other Clamp Manga, most obviously various characters from 'Cardcaptor Sakura', as well as characters from 'RG Veda', 'Chobits', and 'X/1999'.
All in all, it's perfect for a Clamp fan, and enjoyable for a beginner too.

I have been waiting for such a long time for Tsubasa to be published in an English version and it is worth the wait! This is possibly my favourite CLAMP manga so I will give it 6 stars out of 5.... oh, I can't rate it that high...oh well, 5 stars then. Tsubasa is yet another CLAMP manga which crosses over with many other previous CLAMP mangas, such as Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits, X/1999, Magic Knight Rayearth, Xxxholic etc..., but you don't have to read all the CLAMP mangas to understand the story.
It features Sakura & Syaoran from CCS, as the main characters, when they are about 17 years old. Sakura is the princess of Clow and Syaoran is an architect, you will realise their personalities are different from the CCS manga and the story is that Sakura has lost all of her memories and starting to get cold. Syaoran has to pay the price of Sakuras true feelings for him in order to go on a quest to restore Sakuras memories. Thats all I am going to say about the story so read this manga to know the full story.
The manga also features a sneak preview of the CLAMP manga Xxxholic, Character profiles, a small CLAMP profile and colour pages in the first 2 pages of the manga (so beautiful uses of colours!) As a CLAMP fan I would not be complete with out this manga, so what are you waiting for CLAMP fans????

I first picked up Tsubasa as a fan of Clamp's Cardcaptor Sakura, after hearing that the series somehow overlapped.
Tsubasa does feature Sakura and Syaoran (as well as other characters) from Cardcaptor Sakura, but they belong to an alternative world/dimension. If you haven't read Cardcaptor Sakura it doesn't matter at all, since Tsubasa's plot is totally independent. If you have read Cardcaptor Sakura, don't expect a sequel or any continuation story-wise. However, a lot of old characters do appear, which is nice and sometimes amusing.

In Tsubasa, Sakura is a princess and Syaoran is her childhood friend and the son of an archaeologist. In the first volume Sakura basically loses her memories, which take the form of feathers, dispersed across various alternate worlds. Syaoran vows to restore retrieve and restore Sakura's memories. They're joined by Fai, a powerful magician and Kurogane, a warrior, who both have their reasons for also needing to travel across different dimensions. Together, they all make a joint deal with the space-time witch Yuko (who stars in Clamp's xxxHolic), who enables them to travel across different worlds.

Various characters from other Clamp series have cameos/ roles within the worlds they visit but the core group is made up of Sakura, Syaoran, Fai, Kurogane and Mokona (from Magic Knight Rayearth). The basic premise of chapters/volumes is the group's arrival and search for Sakura's memories in each place/ dimension they visit. Not surprisingly, Clamp has a lot of fun with the different settings and time periods possible.

Overall Tsubasa is a great series. All the characters are well defined and as the series progresses it gains depth as we find out more about Syaoran, Fai and Kurogane's pasts.
