Posted on 12 June 2007 with categories: Tsubasa Chronicle

Great news! It seems that my speculations about there not being a continuation of Tsubasa Chronicle were wrong. According to this site, a Tsubasa Chronicle OVA has been announced! The animation studio to handle it is still unknown at this point.

It’ll be interesting to see how this develops in the future. Obviously, an OVA won’t be enough to finish the story, as from the things I heard, the manga goes on for much longer. Still, this does show that CLAMP doesn’t give up after its debacle with Bee-Train. Perhaps we can expect more OVAs in the future, or perhaps even a third season.

    An OVA is one thing but what we all want is another season, there has been rumors that there will be another season and there are also rumors that there wont be one. Hopefully there will be one as OVAs are never enough to wrap things up for a series as long as Tsubasa Chronicles

  2. Hinode says:

    I agree with the “An OVA is one thing” statement. But at least there is something :) …

    I’m praying Bee-Train isn’t the studio. Oh and I don’t want a third season. Especially if Bee-Train is handling it.

  4. Kite says:

    I’m not gonna bash on Bee-Train! Just be thankful you got 2 seasons of the anime already. Things could be worse. In other news. An OVA seems alright but I really hope they don’t stop there or else there will be a lot of sad fans…

  5. Lika says:

    The OVA should only cover the Tokyo arc in manga (for those who don’t read the manga, be warned, it’s VERY dark and bloody compared to the rest of the series. Think ‘X’ dark and bloody), seeing as Ohkawa said that she really wanted to see the Tokyo arc in Tsubasa and the Spider eye arc in xxxHOLiC to be covered.

    The Tokyo arc should satisfy many fans though, seeing as there is SO MUCH plot development during the arc. For those who don’t/haven’t read the manga yet, I really can’t see how you can resist anymore after the OVA, because… uh… can we say giant cliff hangers of doom? xD;;

    (Another thing of interest: the Tokyo arc OVAs’ scripts will be written by Ohkawa herself! :D)

  6. psgels says:

    A small update: the site now officially states that there isn’t a third season in production. Still, the fact that the Tokyo arc will be one gigantic cliffhanger, I’m having hope for either a whole series of OVAs, or some kind of third season that doesn’t have anything to do with NHK and Bee-train. Only time will tell, though.

  7. psgels says:

    More information here:
    http://www.tsubasaanime.net/2007/06/tsubasa-reservoir-chronicle-tokyo.php

    Production IG, who handled the Movie will be animating it, and the first OVA will come out on November 21 (coincidentally enough, the date of the two-year anniversary of my blog).

    But most importantly: if we want more tsubasa, these OVAs have to SELL WELL. This is one of those instances in which illegal downloading could hurt if it goes too far.

    What exactly is an OVA?

  9. psgels says:

    “Original Video Animation, abbreviated OVA, is a term used for anime titles that are released direct-to-video, without prior showings on TV or in theaters. OVA titles were originally available on VHS, though they later became available on other media such as Laserdisc and DVD. OVA is sometimes used to refer to any short anime series or special regardless of its release format.” – taken from Wikipedia

    though i am wishing there would be a third season (fyi, it was suppose to have shone in april 2007 in japan, apparently did not), an OVA will be an unfortunately good idea for the company. It is able to develop a general plot and most likely to have a cliffhanger in the end. Therefore, as they continue producing the mangas, they no longer have to make anymore seasons. Ouran High School Host Club had a sort of cliffhanger at the end of its anime and it has persuaded me and probably other to get the manga. haha, sounds logical, i hope?

  11. animejunkie says:

    According to Wikipedia there are only going to be two seasons and 3 OVAs. There is no mention anywhere that I have found that has any solid background on there being a third season, only rumors. I personally hope that the make a third season because the end of the second was really not a place where the anime should end, but if they don’t so be it. I am not following the manga and don’t plan to for a while anyway so I guess I won’t have a conclusion to the story for a while.

    Fansubbed version was just released a few hours ago (days now) by Shinsen-Subs…. buy it when it comes to the your region! Support your animes!

  15. Libby says:

    The OVA was released. A series of OVAs are supposed to be released according to wiki. An OVA doesn’t mean its over though. If I recall rightly, Full Metal Panic had an OVA in s1, s2, AND s3 and a s4 is also due. [If it hasn't come out already, which I don't think it has, but it went into development after Kanon 2006 was finished] So fingers crossed, a third series will be out. The manga is still ongoing so it should have another series, I doubt CLAMP are going to leave so many things unanswered when the OVA finished on a cliff hanger [I watched it today, it was released Nov 17th I think]

  16. Sue says:

    I heard from a friend that they were making two more seasons, but I could be wrong. I do hope they do though because the ending of the last episode definitely isn’t an ending, and it doesn’t match up with the manga at all. There’s so much that still needs to take place, and the manga itself isn’t done being produced as well. I hope that in addition to the OVAs that they’ll make more seasons to the anime series.

    OH YEEEAAAAHHH!
    I LOVE TSUBASA CHRONICLES
    WE MUST PRAY TOGETHER!!!!!

  18. Kagegirl says:

    All I know is that they ended Shunraiki at a cliffhanger and that they need to continue; or they’ll be having some angry and sad fan on their hands…I have read the manga though and was kind of angry when the skipped Celes and Trinity arcs, which doesn’t make too much sense because the Acid Tokyo arc was just as dark as the Trinity arc at some points and leaving out most of the Celes arc is pointless…People deserve to hear about Fai’s past! XD They’ve been waiting for 2 season’s and two OVAs to find out about it dang it! XD

    @Aidan The Congo Free State, Columbus, in all these acts of mass murder the perpetrators were able to convince themselves that the people they were killing were sub-human. It’s not hard to slaughter people like animals if you honestly think that those people ARE animals. It’s why discrimination is so evil.

    It is easy to see however how people would wander to seeing lolita herself as a victim as people traditionally see the child as the victim in that situation.

    @Aidan: My opinion of lolita matches yours. However I would like to ask of the film adaptations which one worked better for you, the one with James mason or the one with Jeremy Irons?

    I didn’t like how people tended to degrade the characters just to match their view and forcefully paint black and white over it. It ain’t that simple.

    For example I read Lolita recently. In my opinion it was about two remarkable flawed indivuals. Horrible in there own ways. However when I looked at reviews of it I couldn’t help but notice that people tended to take sides. Either Humbert was the naive man taken in by a succubus or Lolita was the poor stupid girl abused by a monster.

The end of episode 13 showed us the standard “Tsudzuku”, or “to be continued”. You’d better keep your words, Space Dandy! But still, what a ride, what a ride.

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing.

Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]
