Tsubasa Chronicle #5


The episode starts with a flashback of Clow Country where Sakura is in bed (the apples look tasty XD). Syaoran asks if Sakura is okay and she asks him to hold her hand. Meanwhile, at the Hanshin apartment, he’s also holding her hand.

Sorata comes to the room with Arashi and we finally get to see some nice Arashi/Sorata interactions ^O^ She punches him.

They discuss about the feather, that it’s with one of the Kudans, but since there were too many at one place, they don’t know who has it.


Miyuki-chan!!!! I’m so glad they’ve added you!! *Go go BeeTrain!*

At the city, Masayoshi (New character added to the Chobits/AL world. He’s named Saitou Masayoshi, as Saitou Kaede, same kanjis.) comes, always with the cute “Syaoran-kuuuuuuuun” ^0^ I think he’s trying to help them to find the feather or something… the thing is that Mokona goes crazy and jumps on his shoulder. That’s when a bird (okay, you all know it’s a kudan) *ahem* that’s when a kudan comes in the air and take them away.

Syaoran catches the letter on the floor and reads that they are waiting at the Hanshin Castle. And now I’m so happy to know they’ve kept that scene, where each one of them speaks in different language.

This is TEH cute scene of the episode, when they all remember Mokona!

At the castle, Masayoshi and a swinging-Mokona are hanged in the top of it calling for help, actually, only Masayoshi, Mokona is really enjoying the game XD

On another part of the Castle, Primera is asking for her buddies if it’s really the boy. She wants Shougo to come.

Our guys are at the map of the city looking for the castle (with little people walking around in the background, yey!) They now can understand each other again, Fye realizes that Mokona must be close.

The guys arrive at the Castle and get to see Masayoshi (who is happy to see them) and a singing-Mokona (who didn’t even notice their arrival). Primera’s buddies casts their kudan to attack Syaoran and co.

Kurogane goes “Let me handle it” *Nihon soundtrack* he gets his sword and kicks some ass.

He then asks who the hell is that girl. Her buddies presents her as been the Drama Queen number 1 of Hanshin XDDD (Syaoran’s face after that speech is just perfect XD)

He asks politely for Masayoshi and Mokona. That’s when she realizes that Syaoran is not the one who’s up there. “I’m Syaoran” – he replies.

She punches and calls her buddies “Baka” for catching the wrong boy XDDDDD


She’s so perfectly well-draw >_<

I guess she says that they’ll have to fight with her if they want them back. Fye decides to take it.


Amazing Eyecatch!!! o.o loved the accessories

The Kudan gets into Fye’s body and now he has the ability to fly *Celes soundtrack*

Primera goes “Sailor Moon” and calls her kudan

She casts some explosive musical notes but Fye manages to escape it *Celes Soundtrack* Masayoshi screams to Fye that her kudan is a powerful one. She casts one more time. And he escapes one more time XD

She casts again and again and Fye escapes again and again. She gets mad and changes the form of her kudan to a bigger mic.

She sings and an explosive musical not hits Fye. Syaoran goes in panic.

Fye replies behind his back he’s just fine, escaping again of her attack.


Awesome >.<

They realize that Primera doesn’t have the feather because Mokona didn’t go “Mekyou!” (who is still singing, BTW).

*Celes soundtrack* She goes to one last attack (I wish they would have kept the japanese words ._.), with a wave of musical notes. Fye steps upon it and runs towards Primera.

He consoles her, making her teary. She speaks but since she’s with the big mic, her voice goes LOUD and more musical notes explodes making Masayoshi and Mokona be free. His kudan catches him trying to save him. Shougo’s kudan saves them before they hit the floor. Masayoshi thanks Shougo and Mokona goes “Mekyo!” (she’s so cute when saying this >.<)

Shougo and Primera have their "love moment" and later Mokona jumps calling "Syaoran! Syaoran!", and he goes "Your eyes O.O The feather is here. Who has it?", but Mokona replies she doesn't know.

Syaoran then thinks Shougo has it and challenges him for a battle, and I think Shougo said that if he wins, Syaoran will have to enter their gang.

END.

I fear a bit for the next episode since the design will be the same awful one of episode 2 *sigh*

My thoughts on the episode:
I REALLY liked it! Loved it ! Starting by the chara design! Absolutely great! Fye didn't look weird in any shot, the contrary, it looked, IMO, his best way until now. And that's not only for him, all of them are particularly well-draw, kind of the same in episode #1. I wish they stayed like this during most of the show. They took really good care of Primera! She's cute and annoying in the perfect tone.
Then, there's the script, which is very faithful to the manga. And there were the perfect sense of humor as well.
I'm so glad they treated well Fye's episode.

  1. I agree! I liked it too. I’m gauging how much I like an episode by the number of times I actually laugh/grin/snicker — and you’re right, Syaoran’s facial expression when Primera thought she captured “Syaoran” was great.

  3. I pretty much agree with you on this episode. Especially about how perfectly obnoxious Primera is. Did anyone else see that part where Mokona was humping Kurogane’s neck, or was it a nightmare I had? This might explain why Kuro/Mokona was #3 on the popular couples/pair survey…

    *shudder*

    I agree. just perfect. For me, even better than the first episodee. So well-drawn, the different languages scenes was there, Fay looked great, Kuro looked great, Syaoran looked great, Primera is 100% perfect, and I finally laughed a LOT, with Mokona hanging and singing, though I knew he was going to do that. Mokona is even funnier in the anime than in the manga.
    And Sakura nd Syaoran flashback was really romantic, they are much more romantic than in the manga.

    NOW i´m excited with this anime!!!

    Was there a survey about Tsubasa couples? And Kuro and Mokona were voted? and got the 3th position?
    OK, Sakura and Syaoran must had been first place, so who won the second, Arashi and Sorata?

    She punches and calls her buddies “Baka” for catching the wrong boy XDDDDD
    Absolutely loved Primera in this episode! XD
    She’s so perfectly well-draw >_<
    I agree, but I think her colors are dull….
    Amazing Eyecatch!!! o.o loved the accessories
    Wow! My thoughts exactly!
    Syaoran then thinks Shougo has it and challenges him for a battle, and I think Shougo said that if he wins, Syaoran will have to enter their gang.
    According to the subs I downloaded, Syaoran asks him if his kudan had Sakura's feather but Shougo shrugs it off and says: "I was serious when I said you interested me. You're strong and I don't mean your muscles. In here." *points to heart and challenges Syaoran again to battle* And for the feather of course, Syaoran accepts. 😀

    Nice review as usual. I don't completely agree with everything but I also think it's a great episode which is the whole point of your review anyways so it doesn’t really matter. ^_^;; And I'm surprised but nonetheless happy that they're really being faithful to the manga. 😀 Yayay. Can't wait for the next episode.
