A third season of the anime was planned to launch. However, NHK considered its plot very violent and cancelled the production, which led to several protests from fans outside the TV station building. So, to finish the series, Production I.G., the company behind the xxxHolic anime, picked up the rights to make several OVAs.
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle currently has two different OVAs (Original Video Animation).
The first OVA, "Tsubasa: TOKYO REVELATIONS" features the "Tokyo Arc",which follows the original storyline after Lecourt.
Important Note: Since these OADs are oriented to the manga readers, they might skip previous arcs/worlds which have not been animated since they are independent versions to the anime. The OADs only present the storyline of a fragment of the manga, assuming that the reader already knows what previously occured. So read the manga before watching these events, you'll have a better idea of what is going on, and also to avoid spoilers.
