Tsubasa ‑RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- Tokyo Revelations 03

Seri­ous­ly, I think my inner Card­cap­tor Saku­ra fan­boy just squealed in excite­ment see­ing that lit­tle CCS!Sakura cameo in this episode. <3 Wait… a CCS!Sakura cameo? What the hell were they think­ing?! THAT’S JUST TOO F*CKING AWESOME! >D

Looks like this last OVA episode con­cludes the orgas­mic ani­me adap­ta­tion of one of my favorite arcs of Tsub­asa ‑RESER­Voir CHRoN­i­CLE-. Kind of unfor­tu­nate that Bee­Train decid­ed to screw up while get­ting clos­er to the part of the sto­ry where it actu­al­ly starts to pull out the unique plot twists and starts to get pret­ty excit­ing, or else the tele­vised ani­me would’ve been a lot bet­ter than it should. Pro­duc­tion I.G. real­ly impressed me with this set of OVA episodes — flu­id ani­ma­tion, great tran­si­tion between man­ga and ani­me scenes, mur­der­ous­ly good pac­ing that makes you want to break into the stu­dio (gun in hand) and demand for more, and great voice direc­tion. Basi­cal­ly, it’s every­thing the ani­me was good at with­out the things it was­n’t, replac­ing those with even bet­ter stuff (they kept the basic sound­track from the ani­me intact with some new tunes and the voic­es, which should real­ly stay as it is). I real­ly hope that these OVA episodes sold well enough for them to ani­mate the rest of the manga. (:

Saku­ra. <3 Don’t you just want to hug the poor thing after see­ing what she’s been through? D=

  1. I hope they ani­mate anoth­er sea­son and not just a few ova eps, when it comes to a long run­ning series, a few eps to end it off does­n’t cut it.

  2. @Toki­Do­ki: If the sea­son’s ani­mat­ed by Pro­duc­tion I.G., then I’m all up for that! (: Of course, they’d have to find anoth­er net­work to broad­cast it since the series gets mild­ly vio­lent from here on.

    The man­ga’s near­ing its end right now and there’s just a few more worlds after this one, so mak­ing an OVA series on each arc isn’t total­ly impos­si­ble either.
