Tsubasa Chronicle – 52 (END of 2nd Series)

-As Syaoran, Fye, and Kurogane get slammed into some rocks by the force of the bird’s wings, Sakura finds herself in an alternate space. Not caring about collateral damage to the town or the castle, the bird starts firing balls of energy at Syaoran. Mokona thinks that Chaos is willing to do anything to defeat Syaoran, but it has very lonely feelings.
-Syaoran wants Fye and Kurogane to save the frozen Sakura while he acts as a decoy. That doesn’t quite work out because Fei Wong Reed’s troops block off Sakura’s frozen body. In addition, Fei Wong Reed has the other Syaoran open its eye, causing the real Syaoran to freeze and start glowing.
-In the alternate space, Sakura’s shadow turns into Chaos, and he asks her to help him. He knows that with the way things are going, he’ll hurt a lot of people, including those precious to her. He shows her his true form, and she is then been able to break free of the ice. Doing this gets rid of the black troops and releases Syaoran because the other Syaoran closes his eye again.
- Sakura reveals that she got out because Chaos lent her his strength. Because of this, she asks Syaoran to help Chaos.
-Watching the battle from a distance, Kurogane suddenly notices that the Touya and Yukito of this world are running towards them. Those two are the swordsmiths that Kurogane asked to repair Syaoran’s sword, and they’ve done just that. Kurogane brings it to Syaoran, allowing him to dual-wield Souhi and Hien.
-Syaoran powers up the two swords and forms them into one larger sword, capable of batting back the bird’s energy blasts. He swings the sword at the bird, but stops just short of cutting its neck. It cries a tear and then changes back into a winged Chaos, who concedes defeat.
-After the battle, Sakura hugs Chaos and tells the others that Chaos is herself. The true form he had shown her earlier had been a sphere of her feathers. Kurogane and Fye hypothesize that Chaos wanted Sakura because of the feathers’ memories. Chaos makes sure Syaoran is going to return all of Sakura’s feathers, and then thanks Sakura before he disappears into a cloud of sparkles and feathers.
-Kurogane had thought that their journey would end, but Mokona knows that there are still many more feathers – Fye and Mokona both want to continue the journey. Syaoran vows to Sakura that someday all the feathers will be recovered.
-Sakura regains a memory of her brother and Yukito not letting her go alone on a journey when she was younger. Sakura wasn’t alone though, and had looked behind her to someone, but no one is standing there in the memory.
-Syaoran and company arrive at the next world, continuing their journey.

Well that was about what I had expected from the ending, even if things didn’t quite go as I had predicted. The overall episode was decent, on about the same level as the rest of this arc has been. Chaos didn’t really turn out to be evil, and Syaoran got some cool fighting moments when he’s dual-wielding Souhi and Hien. I kind of wish that they had involved Fei Wong Reed and company more, but since they probably couldn’t go too far because this is anime-original material. The same goes for the other Syaoran opening the eye and closing it again. We’ll have to wait a bit longer…

Final Thoughts: This second block of episodes certainly had its ups and downs. What surprised me a little was that my favorite episodes – the ChiXFye one and the super-deformed one – came from anime-original ones. It just goes to show that they’re not all mediocre.
Assuming NTV follows their current schedule of Tsubasa reruns, episode 53 should premiere on May 12th, 2007. Hopefully the third series will be better overall. There’s some very good story coming, but we’ll have to wait until next year for the journey to continue.

    IF YOU READ THIS THE SEASON IS GOING TO BE SPOIL AS IM GOING TO REVEAL A SAD FACT about SYaron, the one that is in the tank is actually the real Syaron and the protagonist is a clone of syaron meaning the protagonist is the antogonist, and fai became a vampire by Kurogane having him turn into a vampire by yuuku, sorry but if you read this please post a comment.

    more like they will make an ova out of current arcs in manga

    I couldnt find anything good in second season – actually before reading manga, i thought this anime will be a screw-up of the year. thanks god manga is way better. And btw – petition is pointless lol…there is no way they would air the contents of tokyo arc on tv :D

    as for your spoiler – that arc was the main factor why anime would screw up – mean, they took out all the blood and violence up till now, so imagine tokyo arc without any of things you mentioned…

    and of course the Infinity arc had lots of blood and Fai’s past is INDEED impossible to be animated on tv(erm..how would you show Yui puting corpses near the tower as a ladder to his brother?…seriously…)

  • June 26, 2007 at 1:55 pmRamon

    men stfu this is a very good anime and i want to see 3seson i dont care how many season it take but i want to see syoran and sakura kissing that all.im sure they will make 3season they cant leave the funs like that damn.

  • June 26, 2007 at 6:57 pmAloneinVoid

    Oh they havent left – as i said, manga still continues, and they will realease thre ova’s(first one comming in November this year). It will cover the manga chapters after Library arc(and the proper end of Library arc too).
    And no – sakura and sayo wont likely be kissing each other. As of what happening currently, i really doubt it will happen anytime in future lol…the best case scenario is that atleast one of main cast will survive…
    About kissing again – this storyline is not about “love”, its more like about “despair”, “going against destiny” and “angst” stuff.

  • June 29, 2007 at 9:12 amMaeglyn

    I was just reading that a 3 Episode OVA will be coming out in 2008.. Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations. Tokyo Revelations will cover events from the Tokyo arc of the Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle Manga. :D Can’t wait!

  • June 29, 2007 at 7:59 pmsusen

  • July 6, 2007 at 10:14 pmDan

  • July 10, 2007 at 10:38 amAloneinVoid

    AND the last episode of the anime…There will be an ova, with the first part of it coming out NOvember 16, 2007. Lets only hope that the ova will succeed in where this anime failed (everything)

    P.s. Promo picture with actual character designs from Tokyo Revelations OVA(Only sayorans and sakura for now…)

  • August 5, 2007 at 7:44 amgowthami

    I am curiously waiting for third season.

  • August 7, 2007 at 10:36 amDocile

    oh man.. how far away will the 3rd season be?? it should kick ass !! that 2nd season ending didn’t really do it for me.. but dayum that chaos guy got me voting for sayouri more LOL!! until i knew who he was. haha

    ETA on the 3rd season?

  • August 8, 2007 at 10:19 pmUnknown Voice

    ETA on 3rd season: Never

    The anme was cancelled by original mangaka, CLAMP, as they were horribly unsatistiffied on how Beetrain Animations handled this adaptation. the fans were already hoping for such a turn of events, as Beetrain Animations drastically changed the original storyline, and destroyed the personalities of characters.

    Good News?
    Three “Tsubasa: RESERVOIR CHronicle – The Tokyo Revelations” OAD(Original Anime DVD) coming soon. The first one is set to hit the stores in JP on November 16, together with “Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle” manga volume 21.

  • August 13, 2007 at 3:03 pmSpazzy

    Thank you!

  • August 22, 2007 at 11:16 ammaaya sakamoto :)

    wow, I’m the first to post a comment this year!!! YAY! But to whoever reads this next, does anybody know if they definately are going to make a third season? I men they can’t end it just like that…it would be stupid.

    Oh, and Syaoran is much hotter than Chaos, but Fye is better than both!!!

  • September 17, 2007 at 9:07 amdolcebolla

    Odio Kausu o Chaos
    e penso che syaoran sia il più bello del mondo

  • September 25, 2007 at 3:20 amStephanie luvs Tsubasa

    grr…i soo want the 3rd season to come now!!!!…this is painful having to wait for it. i really want to see how it ends. plus i want syaoran and sakura to kiss at least once!!!

  • September 27, 2007 at 9:30 pmTRC Fanatic

    There must be season 3. If not, how can explain the “other” Syaoran that was damn frequently show in the anime? I’m quite unsatisfied with the anime adaptation since it was suppose to be the shonen type, it should have more action like Naruto or Bleach. The manga was great though…even though I don’t really have time to read it coz…well it is better to watch 30 minutes anime rather than reading about an hour…for 1 chapter,(including the loading time in online manga reader). But the last episode is really forgivable, even though supposedly at the Rekord country, Tsubasa travellers (meaning Syaoran and others) meet Kamui, and explain about Seishirou existence and whatsoever…That Chaos guy is way better than Syaoran(even though I’m S+S fan) and I hope if the Chaos character is coming either on anime or manga next time, I’m really hope Sakura choose him over Syaoran. Even so, Ganbatte-neh CLAMP and good luck to Syaoran for finding all the feathers. Lastly, ~Mokona Modoki O DOKI-DOKI!!~

  • September 29, 2007 at 7:20 ammarina

    the real syaoran is the one kept with fei wong reed/
    the other syaoran with the left eye is syaoran’s clone.
    issit it?

  • October 10, 2007 at 7:54 amLuffy-chan

    Thanks for the pictures. xP I love the anime and the manga, and I had heard about the anime having a third series, but I wasn’t aware that it was CLAMP that didn’t want it shown…I had to admit, at the end of the second series they were going on a bit of a tangent. 0.o There’s so much good stuff that happens in the manga, and I’d be very disappointed if they didn’t include it. Especially with syaoran. :3

  • November 1, 2007 at 9:22 pmDavid

    The story in the manga asn’t finished yet. I’ve read all the way to chapter 170 which is in volume 23 which wont come out until next year. So, Clamp’s probably waiting for more books to come out to continue the anime after Tokyo Revelation. Plus, Tomyo’s older sister in chapter 170 even said their jurney is far from over. That plus the time for Clamp to make or find people to produce better anime then those guys they saced and work on it will take years. Tsubasa is still a work in progress and is far from over. I think Clamp may half maid a mistake by making an anime so early when this is their longest runing work ever. On top of everything, they half another series called XXX holic which interthwines with Tsubasa. So, they half to make a finished anime and manga for each because surtain events in one story affects the other. eg: When Fay gave his staff to Yuko, she was playing baseball in the parck and then used the staff as a cleaning tool. And half you ever thaught were they got that magic ball which they through at the castle to break its barrier?
    It was actully a bunch of spirits that the black mokona sucked up into his mouth and formed a ball with them.

    Next year?…woooaaahhhh?!!!!…its really tiring to wait!…well…what can i do…I’m not the publisher…Oh! please let me know if the next chapter starts!!!!!…e-mail me at rmo_103@yahoo.com.ph!….tnx!…I’ll really wait!!!!!!!!!!!!…

    Um, sorry to say, but there’s no third season (because Beeline or whatever thaat company’s called claimed that it was “too violent”). Instead, there’s going to be three OVAs, and the first one came out a few weeks ago . . .

    the first one is “The Magician’s Message”
    the second one is “The Boy’s Right Eye” (comes out in January 2008)
    the third one is “The Dream that the Princess Had” (or something like that) and it comes out in March 2008

    I hate Beeline sooooo much *goes away and comes back with a machine gun*

  • February 5, 2008 at 3:44 pmalex

    on http://www.tv.com it shows when episodes air for tsubasa and episode 53 aired in november 2007.

  • March 21, 2008 at 8:05 pmSakura

    heh… Betrain screwed up the anime. There is no season 3. if you want to know about the FWR part and everything then read the manga. But i will warn you that it is supper depressing… oh well =Þ

  • July 10, 2008 at 6:22 pmMythe

    Dang, if I were Sakura, I’d be happy to go with Chaos who is much cooler than Syraoran imo.

  • October 30, 2008 at 11:42 pmsakura
