I’ve been very busy this week with work, I would even like to apologize for being late on posting and answering comments during this week (thank you all for them!).
Who needs splash pages when you’re manga is at the climax, riiiight? XD
So the tube scene finally shows itself again and once again, I was mistaken xD I was under the impression that that scene was representing a scene that would eventually happen in the course of the story. But it turns out that, apparently, that scene already happened, actually it may have happened right there at Chapter 1, or even earlier.
So the Sakura and Syaoran who are there, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT, are actually CCS Sakura and Syaoran. God.
I remember when Tsubasa first started, the first summaries of Chapter 1 described that tube scene, and they were saying “They are on a tube, they can’t touch each other, but they are not the same Syaoran and Sakura from CCS“. How wrong we were xD
This brought me questions, lots of questions, so be prepared for questions cause I’m not understanding what’s going on (for a change xD).
Why the need to turn back time?
Who build that tube? It was given to Yuuko so it wasn’t hers. Sakura and Syaoran themselves?
Since when Yukito is blood related to Sakura and Syaoran?
Why Syaoran’s magic circle is beneath Sakura and, on the other hand, Sakura’s magic circle is beneath Syaoran? Are each of them casting their magic on each other?
Why their “selfs” have the same clothing as TRC!Sakura and TRC!Syaoran? I can understand Sakura because it could represent her pure soul but Syaoran? Why clothes exactly like Clow country? And he looks beat up too, on the top.
Why are the surroundings falling apart? Where were them back then? At the shop? What’s with the geometrical background? Was the shop falling apart once? Or were they elsewhere and after that incident they were moved to Yuuko’s shop?
Where is Sakura flying to? She can’t go nowhere in that small tube.
What is that other tube where the soul of the “original” Sakura cloned by Fei Wang supposedly went to?
At least now we can CLEARLY understand why the “Sakura” Syaoran screams is written in hiragana.
Also, Yuuko herself clearly states that her time has began to move again, so she really was frozen in time. I still don’t understand what’s the difference between her and Clow!Sakura frozen time… magic power?
Fei Wang goes MASAKA, which means he did not expect for that. Humm, the beginning of his end?
The last page is made of total crackiness, I lost control of how many Sakuras and Syaorans we have. LOL
I’m slightly disappointed with Tsubasa after this chapter. I really hope everything will make sense in the end, cause right now it just DOESN’T and looks full of possible plot-holes. I’m counting on you Ohkawa to put and end to this mess which you started (yes, I’m quoting Yuuko about Clow and Fei Wang xD).
In case you are wondering, yes, I watched the OAD, and I was utterly disappointed with it. Utterly displeased by the animation, soundtrack (which I never liked) and cast (didn’t like Kendappa’s voice, and some of the old cast still happen to annoy me xD). Even the script did not please me, I’m afraid.
