Its noted in the back that this one was made to resemble the cultural/technological revolution in japan after the war. Its also kind of reminiscent to Chobits (or maybe thats just me). And as always, there is something wrong with a dimension. This one has mosters called Oni that come out of walls and whatnot. Kurogane and Syaoran become Oni hunters for money and meet with a couple of characters that you might know from X/1999.
Fai, meanwhile, opens a cafe to get information about the new country and thats about where they leave off. Also, Kurogane is warming up to Syaoran slightly. SLIGHTLY. You also find out that Syaoran is blind inone eye, as Kuragane (i love him) points out.
As far as the product, the illustrations are awesome (but you can only expect that from CLAMP) and the script is interesting and doesn't get monotanous (or have to explain things over and over again.... You know what I mean).
I highly recommend this series,especially if you read CLAMP before because their characters often come up with different roles in this series (its so exciting when you find one you know!). Also, I guess you are supposed to read xxxHolic as a complement to this, as events in either one cross over with the other. I have xxxHolic vol. 3 and think that is cool as well, but this has more adventure and "action" where as the other has a stationary setting to it.
overall, it was very good, but get the volumes before this first. Don't go out of order (i don't care if you like this cover better... you won't really know what's going on!)
Before it starts, Syaoran finishes his full disclosure, and in a touching segment receives his "punishment" from his caring foster parents. It's also a red-letter volume for Holic fans, as we finally learn the connection between Syaoran and Kimihiro Watanuki - and it's worth noting that the guys are not yet aware at this point of the monumental events which have just taken place over in Holic.
But what this volume is really all about is the guys finally, finally catching up to Fei Wang Reed - and it delivers in full as Syaoran faces his newly-arrived clone and Kurogane and Fai have a go at making mincemeat out of the big bad himself.
This is not the sheer poetry of the Acid Tokyo arc, but it's exactly what we want at this point. Kurogane and Fai's one-liners as they close in make you want to shout and cheer, knowing what this monster has put them through and seeing them face him down, no longer the boys whose lives he ruined. We get a few frames of Fai in full vampire mode compensating for the loss of his magic (and for the first time in the series actually scarier than Kurogane!), and the look on Kurogane's face says everything we know about how long he's been waiting for this. The volume ends with the conclusion of the Syaoran clone storyline, which ends, perhaps, the only way it could have.
As opposed to the last volume of Holic, after which we need some time to collect ourselves, the next volume of Tsubasa can't come soon enough.
and kurogane almost kills fai for REAL!!!! until the clover bartender-san *lol* comes out and saves the day--for asking him pretty much not to kill anybody right in front of the bar XD
all in all TOTALLY AWSOME VOLUME--rocks my socks off!!!
Oh, CLAMP's kawaii cat shows us too!
