Tsubasa, RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE Collected Memories Blu-ray Review

Based on the manga series of the same name by CLAMP, Tsubasa is a fifty two episode series with no end that's all about the journey. If you don't like shows about journey's and the kinds of bonds that form here, similar to Saiyuki, this is most definitely not a show for you. I had watched this series in its single disc form release a couple of years ago across both seasons but avoided the previous collections. Watching the whole thing over the course of a few days as it runs nearly twenty-four hours worth of material was an interesting experience, though one that does drain after awhile.

The premise of the series and its origins tied to the xxxholic series is one that I really do like. CLAMP has taken to tying together many of its worlds through the CLAMPverse with Tsubasa by introducing us to a world where Sakura is a princess in a desert kingdom while Syaoran is the son of an archaeologist who has grown up with her. She's fallen in love with him and is close to telling him, but fates have something else in mind. An unseen power, one that dabbles in the show from time to time, orchestrates events so that Sakura is within an artifact at the outskirts of the kingdom where her memories are stolen from her, changed into the form of feathers, and spread out through time and space. Sakura's life is in danger because of this as she won't be able to last long in this form.
