The Spanish website Crossed Destinies is organizing the I Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE COMmeMORATiVE Day, a global event to celebrate the 7th Anniversary of Tsubasa’s serialization and 1st Anniversary of its ending.
From their press release:
For the 7th anniversary of the start of Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE serialization and the first after the manga has ended and the release in Spain of volume 28 on May 6th, Crossed Destinies wants to announce the I Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE COMmeMORATiVE Day on May 21st, 2010. After selling more than 20 millions of volumes throughout the world and becoming CLAMP’s most famous manga, this day has been chosen as an homage to Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE throughout the world. Many organizations, associations and fan clubs will collaborate to make many kinds of non-profit activities related to the series. In a similar way that happened with other manga, such as Ai Yazawa’s NANA in the NANA Day (7/7/2007), the idea is that all the fans around the globe make activities to remember TRC. For that purpose, at Crossed Destinies we’re providing all fans and associations the necessary help to administer and organize all the activities and events, updating the list of cities and activities daily.
As for us, in collaboration with the bookstore “Casa del Libro” in Málaga (Spain), we’re going to make an screening with Tsubasa OADs (not licensed in our country) subbed in spanish, and also make a trivia with exclusive prizes, a Q&A panel and other activities.
Celebrating the 7th anniversary of the start of the serialization of Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, and the first anniversary after the manga ended, Crossed Destinies wants to announce the I Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE COMmeMORATiVE Day on May 21st, 2010.

Note: the posters hosted at www.crossed-destinies.net (1500px color PNG and 180px banner for blogs) can be direct linked and they’ll be updated when new activities are confirmed ^^ So it’d be better to direct link them instead of uploading them on your own server.
Our idea is similar to the Nana Day (7/7/2007) events, were multiple associations and fan clubs around the world organized activities and little conventions related to Ai Yazawa’s manga. Some of them even had the support of publishing companies and others. Maybe we can’t strive to organize something like this (mostly due to the lack of time Y_Y), but anything we can do will be a great step to remember this manga we all love *_*
How can I participate?
– If you want to be an organizer:
This day is open for all the TRC fans worldwide no matter their language or nationality. Because of that we call all associations, publishing companies, comic stores, companies in general and groups of fans to collaborate and organize activities throughout the world on May 21st (Friday): panels, screenings, trivia, karaoke/cosplay contests or any other activity will link us as fans in this special day ^^ It’s a shame that we’ve come with this idea with so little time >_< but if you can collaborate in any way with this day, we'll help you in any way possible to do the activities you want to do.
You can send anything to our e-mail (email@example.com): questions, doubts, suggestions or any activity you want to do. We will be updating the main poster and the news page at Crossed Destinies listing all activities in every city. For this, we highly recommend using the Photoshop template available: you only need to edit the yellow post-it with your activities ^^ and if you can't/don't know how to, ask us and we will edit it for you :3

– If you’re a fan and you want to enjoy an event:
You can see below the list of cities and their activities. The staff will be happy to see you at the event 😀 Also, if you have any question, suggestion or comment, both the organizers and ourselves will be glad to answer it ^^
– If you work for the press:
Using the media, all kinds of publishing, blogs, message boards, social networks, or simply telling your friends about it, you’re making this idea reach more people, and more fans will be able to organize or go to the events of this day ^_^ Please help us spread this message inside and outside the web! You can use the press release below and/or the posters that you can distribute in your city, both the city-specific that are in the following list and the generic one at the end of the first paragraph.
We know it’s a little bit risky and that associations that don’t have a physical space won’t have much time >_< but nobody is forced to participate. This is only an initiative that we hope has a wide approval, but we understand that not everyone has the power or the time to do something. Anyway, in the worst case, we'll make a very special day in Málaga for our part ^_^ so we wish that our city is not the only one, but that all TRC fans can enjoy this special day in their communities, linking the bond we all TRC fans share no matter our age, sex or nationality: our love for Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE.
Events and activities constantly updated!
Take a look at http://www.crossed-destinies.net/galeria/eventos/trc_day_2010/TRC_conmemorative_day_1500px_EN.png and http://www.crossed-destinies.net/?p=671 to follow up the news!
Being friends of Clow and Lulu (the administrators of Crossed Destinies) for some years now, it’s a pleasure to be able to support this initiative. As far as I know, I don’t think there are many CLAMP-related events in this global scale, and now with the Internet this kind of thing is possible. We can all participate in our own way and I really hope something will take place in my country as well, I’m willing to support anything =)
Spread the word about it, be welcomed to contribute with something to your city and let’s all celebrate the Tsubasa Day on May 21!
Waah I wish I could partcipate somehow but there aren’t many TRC fans in Victoria.
You can still do small things like promote it on Twitter, your LJ, change your LJ icon, stuff like that =) It would already help a lot!
Thanks for the news ^^
I’ll definitely advertise it as much as possible!
Thank you very much!
Wow…really wish I could go there! But still, have fun to those who are going ^^
In Spain is where one of the activities will take place, but the idea is to do something everywhere =)
Never thought of that before xD. I just really I could find a few fans in here and help participate 😀
That is a cool idea ^_^
Yay for Tsubasa day!
And… I really want that clean scan of the pic. they used here (with everyone in pink and white).
Haha right after this was released I was looking one as well =3
After trawling through 40-something pages of on AP I refound the link for you.. I was just going to send you a PM with a direct link to the image (it requires 25 papers to download.. which doesn’t take long but if you want the awesomeness now or don’t have an AP account it might be a while XD) but I thought I’d put the link up for other readers as well! ..As an aside the picture is now tagged so it should be easier to find now @@;
Let me know if you still want me to upload it somewhere and send you a direct link! D=
Btw, I don’t think this is the same version, but it’s still really large and awesome =)
Thank you very much. I have the book, but I don’t have the scanner and really wants it as my desktop.
Ummm… May I have the link to more clearer ver? I saved the image from the link and it was blurry when I set to desktop.
No worries here it is:
(PS To get the bigger one from the above link requires you to have an account and post a certain number of comments before you can download it)
I’M SO EXCITED!!
I’m pretty sure I’m the only hardcore Tsubasa fan within a 50 mile radius or so, so my friends and I will just get together some place and do Tsubasa-related stuffs. I’m really looking forward to May 21st!
“After selling more than 20 millions of volumes throughout the world”???
No! 20 millions in Japan only! 😉
I’m gonna FB this XD
How do I re-post this info >< do I just copy and paste?
Re: I’m gonna FB this XD

I would absolutely love to have a celebration for Tsubasa in San Francisco! Unfortunately I don’t know any hardcore fans here other than my boyfriend and me.. darn. But I’m going to do my best to spread the word and see if I can get something going here!
TSUBASA DAY!~ I hope someone in the Bay Area will plan something on that day.
THERE ARE BAY AREA TSUBASA FANS?! *jumps up and down*
Yeah it’d be nice if there was someone willing to organize a big one. Otherwise my friends and I will probably just hang out at my house and talk Tsubasa. 😛
Russia have many of Tsubasa fans but our country is too huge to reunite every fan in every city! But I think I may help with some fanart?) Or my Mokona icon or… Mokona song fandub XD
Awww if only this was May 27-30th D: I could try to talk to a con to do something D:
I’m so excited to be hosting the event in St. George, UT (USA)! I hope more places in the world get involved!
