Anime-header

The anime adaptation for Tsubasa ~RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE~ was announced for April 9, 2005, simply called Tsubasa Chronicle. The adaptation was in charge of Bee-Train studio (Noir (2001), .hack//Sign (2002), Madlax (2004), Tsubasa Chronicle (2005-06), .hack//Roots ,El Cazador de la Bruja, etc) and whose staff includes many important members from .hack, including Yuki Kajiura as the score composer.

The anime was planned to be 3 seasons, 26 episodes each, which would be transmitted in Japan each 6 months (season - 6 months break- next season) and thus it would end by 2007. Nevertheless, the TV network NHK decided to end the series in chapter 52, leaving an open ending (they decided to break away from the mature tone of the manga, because it was "a second part of CCS for them"), completing only 2 of the originally planned 3 seasons.

NHK had a license for Tsubasa~RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE~ up until Rekord Country (Volume 15), and the relations between CLAMP and the company were getting worse (CLAMP was upset with the anime, NHK even rejected CLAMP's storyboard for the Second season opening for the "IT'S" which was included in the CARACTere GuiDE #2), thus the third season was never animated. This is why, there isn't and there will never be a third season for the anime.

Animax, an anime TV Network dubbed both seasons and began broadcasting the series under the title "Chronicle of the Wings" on April 6, 2006 across its English-language networks in Southeast Asia and South Asia as well as its Chinese-language networks in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The TV Network Funimation Entertainment licensed both season under the title Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle for English-language release in North America with 12 DVDs.

The anime follows the manga storyline with filling episodes, specially the Second season, which was also censured a lot because of the NHK- who wants to sell another CCS. There are 3 drama CDs, called "Oukyuu no Matinee" divided in three chapters.

As an extra to close the anime, on December 20, 2006 the last disc of Tsubasa Chronicle was released: Tsubasa Chronicle Best Vocal Collection", a recopilation of some OPs/EDs, insert songs and vocal songs, and a new song by Yui Makino.

The next arc after Rekord is Tokyo. As a continuation of the original storyline, there was an OVA released, which is Tsubasa TOKYO REVELATIONS, produced by Production I.G. See also OVAS
