Well, if you haven't already watched, or read the Tsubasa Chronicles series, you've certainly heard of it. And with that, there should be no excuse if you've heard of Tsubasa Chronicles that you've also heard about the OVA series: Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations.

Yes, the long await fill in, where Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations story arc was skipped in the anime version, has finally arrived in the form of an OVA by the IG studio. For me, I haven't dared to start picking up the 180+ chapters of Tsubasa Chronicles in manga form, so I've been waiting to "watch" what I had missed out by just watching the anime, and thusly I've been missing out; and I could tell that by just watching the first of the trilogy episodes.

I hope for the most part that IG did justice to the missing portion where season one ended on for all our sakes, and only the individuals who have read the manga can tell us any better, so I'm banking on their opinions for that matter. But from my stand point, it was quite good, AS expected from OVA production quality, and CLMAP's magnificent character's and story plot; art work is top notch, Makino Yui's beautiful opening, and attention to detail deserves praises all around (though it's not like I've been quite critical at all recently), so what is there left to say than "This might have been the most anticipated release for 2008 from CLAMP", probably it was worth the enduring wait from how great episodes one and two are.

So, get out there and watch, watch, watch!!! If you don't know what the hypes all about, than your an antique. Virtuosic voice acting, intense fight scenes, deep romance plot, astounding visuals and sound track; need I say more?

Masterpiece at hand

I love it! I just watched the last episode, and now I want more.

The animation is smooth, and the artwork is gorgeous as always, though the characters could have been more expressive.
There's also some fanservice for CardCaptor fans, though I don't think it was included in the manga.

I don't think fanservice is quite the term that would describe the apperiance... but it was a nice mix^^

the first "other Sakura" that we've come across in the anime... but for me, it was kind of moving when she appeared... but nonetheless, yes the artwork is pretty gorgeous^^ though I'm not quite sure how could they be more expressive... most of the characters are emotionless anyways... save for Fai, Mokana and Sakura...

Haha, I was like wtf? when I saw the other Sakura, then I was going all nostalgic. Ah, how could CLAMP be so harsh to poor little Sakura?
