It contains volumes 1 to 3 of the orignial English release and more than half the price!
it also has great translation notes. my copy has clean printing, no smudging or bluring, it's crisp. the paper is also thick. (It's also smells wonderful ^_^) The transaltion is also nice and clean.
I was impressed with my copy and cant wait for the rest!
As to the story. Just go look it up. if you have ever read anything by CLAMP before, then you will love this ^_^
- The story is unchanged, and just as immersive as the first read.
- The art seems better defined, but still lacks the art style I prefer. It reminds me of a slightly better InuYasha. However, this sort of manga, with its fight scenes, do tend to be styled this way.
- The book is small and easy to read.
- Original names, places, etc.
- For those new to the world of manga, or even to the culture of Japan, there are translation notes to help out, and descriptions of certain confusing aspects to help you understand. This is pretty standard in most manga, but still appreciated.
-With omnibus editions, you tend to get bigger pages than the original manga, such as Fruits Basket Ultimate or Cardcaptor Sakura, or even Sailor Moon and Fuugi Yushi. Tsubasa seems somehow even smaller and too compact, and there is no bonus features, such as colour drawings which I was hoping to find.
- Again, no bonus material really ruined this experience for me.
My final comment will be, if you already have the manga to this series, I would not buy this new edition. There is nothing making it more epic than the separate volumes. However, as the volumes are now mostly out of stock, and are very expensive, I would urge you to buy the new omnibus, as it is exactly like the volumes, but obviously compact.

The only way he can, is to make a deal with the Time-Space Witch, Yuuko (who stars in XXXHOLIC) and he must give up the most valuable thing in his life in order to be able to cross dimensions to save Sakura. What he gives up, is his very relationship to her, His very existence to her. For every feather he returns to her, she will never remember Syaoran and how much he means to her.
Accompanying Syaroan, are Fai D. Flowright, a wizard on the run with a dark mysterious past, and the rough exiled samurai, Kurogane. Like Syaoran, they need to cross dimensions for their own purposes, and each give up what they hold the most dear to them. Throughout the journey little things pop up to show you that this fluffy series is not really that fluffy.
Now, this series will start to get a little repetitive until the 15th volume, and then the BIGGEST PLOT TWIST will happen and everything you thought you knew about these characters suddenly twists. It will become DARK and GRIPPING and the GORGEOUS art remains througout it all, and you will find yourself mesmerized by the art and characters and how everything weaves together.
THIS IS NOT A FLUFFY STORY. IT GETS VERY DARK LATER ON BUT MOST PEOPLE GIVE UP ON THIS BECAUSE THEY THINK IT'S JUST ABOUT RETURNING SAUKURA'S MEMORIES, WHEN THERE IS A TWIST TO WHY SHE LOST THOSE MEMORIES, WHO DID IT, AND WHO THESE CHARACTERS REALLY ARE.
I don't mean to type all caps, but this is a very under appreciated series that people overlook. I can tell all of you that it has EVERYTHING to make an epic series: romance, tragedy, betrayal, deception, friendship, adventure, etc.
EVERY CHARACTER IS NOT WHO THEY CLAIM TO BE. NOT EVEN THE MAIN CHARACTERS ARE WHO YOU THOUGHT THEY WERE! This will grip you and haunt you after the truths start to reveal themselves, and when you finish this series to reread it, you will be stumped by how much planning went in to this. I still am finding new things.
The omnibus saves you a lot of money, is presented beautifully, and should NOT be passed up. Trust me, this is the hidden gem you've been searching for in manga.
