Summary:
Arriving in the latest world, Mokona drops the group off in the middle of an ocean. Everyone is ok and fortunately they’re soon rescued by a boat. The captain of the ship, who looks just their foe from Nayutaya Country, introduces himself as Tanbaru. Kurogane isn’t sure if they can trust the same person who was evil in the previous world, but Fye says that souls aren’t divided by good or evil. Tanbaru puts Sakura and Fye to work in the kitchen and Kurogane to work as a deckhand. He has Syaoran help the engine room’s chief, a young boy named Fujitaka. That’s also the name of Syaoran’s father, and Syaoran immediately starts to see parallels with the way this boy talks and acts. While enjoying Sakura’s handmade sushi, Syaoran and Fujitaka start talking about Syaoran’s father. When Fujitaka asks what kind of person Syaoran’s father is, Syaoran admits that his father passed away already. Fye later surmises that this person has the same soul as Syaoran’s father. As for the feather in this world, Mokona doesn’t feel anything, and Fye wonders if they again came to the wrong place. However, Mokona says that Mokona is going to stay in this world because Syaoran wants to stay with Fujitaka a little longer.
That night, Syaoran tells Fujitaka about how he helped his dad, who was an archeologist, when he was Fujitaka’s age. He admits that although he has an interest for archeology, that’s not the reason he’s traveling – he’s traveling because there’s something he needs to find. Fujitaka admires people who have goals and says that he hasn’t found the thing he wants to live for yet. Syaoran says that his father also had a period like that. The two are then called up to the deck because Tanbaru had detected a storm coming. Indeed, one soon arrives and throws Syaoran and Fujitaka overboard. Their friends call out to them, but hear only a laughing sound in return. By the next morning, the two boys have washed up on the beach of a nearby island. They need to find a way to contact the boat, but first they hear the weird laughter. Fujitaka realizes that this is the island of the dead. They go through the middle of the jungle island and find a totem statue. Syaoran identifies it as a ruin from when people used to live here. Recognizing the writing on it, he reads a message that says not to be afraid of the god’s breath and that listening to the god’s singing voice will open a path.
The two make their way to a cave passageway and Syaoran figures out that the god’s singing voice must have been referring to the noise from the wind blowing through the tunnel. Suddenly, the wind out gets significantly stronger, but only for a short period of time. Syaoran says that this is the god’s breath. The two figure out that it’s safe for them to pass during the singing voice period, so the two do just that and barely make it through before the breath period hits again. The ship is within sight, and Kurogane and the others are already rowing out to the island. By chance, a sea monster leaps out at the rowboat, but Kurogane has no trouble dealing with it. Back on the boat, the captain apologizes to Fujitaka for the delay in the rescue. Fujitaka says it’s ok because he found the thing he was looking for. As Syaoran and company prepare to leave through Mokona, Fujitaka tells Syaoran that when he grows up, he’s going to be an archeologist. Syaoran thinks that he’ll definitely become one. His last words before he disappears are “Goodbye, father.”

Well, the episode was alright, bolstered mostly by the fact that Fujitaka was supposed to represent Syaoran’s father. The 「さよなら、お父さん」 (“Goodbye, father”) line at the end tugged at those heart-strings a little. The plot itself was a bit weak, very much in the fillerish sense, but it wasn’t bad per se.
To be honest, the episode didn’t have me anywhere near as excited as the preview for next week, which will feature Chi (from Chobits). I was almost jumping for joy when I realized that, since Chi is a very lovable character who isn’t in the Tsubasa manga very much aside from being from Fye’s world near the beginning of the story. And next week’s story looks like it’ll definitely be FyeXChi :)

    Seems like they’re deviating from the manga a bit. Or I’m way behind on what I’ve read (around ch.100 give or take)..

    lol can they even put other anime characters in their series?

  • May 27, 2006 at 6:54 pmYuki

    I didn’t find this eps to exciting, may be because everyone else is side lined, and we just have Syaoran and his father. (Which I really don’t care much for). any how I was expecting another short story, but anyways, I am excited seeing Chi is going to be up next.

    go Chi Chan

  • May 27, 2006 at 8:24 pmMike

  • May 27, 2006 at 8:41 pmkurotsuki

    quisiera ver en que canal pasan tsubasa

  • May 27, 2006 at 10:48 pmshojo

    I am completely out of loop with the manga already, is the next ep with Chi meant to be a filler too? Coz I do not remember coming across this in the manga. Anyway, ChixFye looks kinda interesting too, think I will give the next ep a try, :)

  • May 27, 2006 at 11:18 pmken

    i hate this season

  • May 27, 2006 at 11:48 pmSaruko

    Ahhhh Chii is sooooo kawaiii! Even though as you describe this episode, it doesn’t seem this great, but it is good for Sayoran to be able to see his “father” again, even if it is not THE SAME Father, don’t you think?

  • May 28, 2006 at 12:07 amHaesslich

    Chii? They’re mining ALL their previous manga and anime, aren’t they? :D I wonder how Syaoran and company will deal with her.. and how she’ll be acting.

    Eld: lol can they even put other anime characters in their series?

    This isnt the first time they integrated characters from chobits, they put two of the laptops in the first season, although they made them much larger then normal. Syaoran and Kurogane found them at the end of the cave in the game world, that i cant remember the name of.

  • May 28, 2006 at 12:19 amNetNN

    There’s a lot of loop-hole that can be filled freely in this series.
    I think I can cope with these filler episode.
    And I can’t wait to see Chi and Fye with each other in the next episode!! ^_^

  • May 28, 2006 at 10:40 amyamid

    Hehe… where did you get the RAW of this episode? o_o Please answer >_

  • May 28, 2006 at 1:57 pmSaruko

    I don’t think the raw is out yet. I checked l33t and Saiyaman yesterday, give them a couple days.

    And the thing with the plum and motoko i think that was the “little big creatures” or something like that. In the country where they were in the angel pod thingeys like from angelic layer. CLAMP must so be enjoying going back to their completed series and using them in TRC don’t you think?

  • May 28, 2006 at 2:35 pmyamid

    Then how did he get those images? o_o

  • May 28, 2006 at 11:20 pmsyaokizz
