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 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.

    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 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

  10. fwd. says:

    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

    But looking back at all the close-ranged gun fights one has to wonder why no one has thought of that to kill the enemy that is too close to dodge or at least make them go away…
    I do enjoy this arc but now I realized they use a rifle as if it was a handgun…
  • ;(
    (Saturday, Jul 4. 2015 02:15 PM)
    Also I just now realized they are using an automatic gun…
    Yet nobody tried spraying bullets on the enemy!!
    Admittingly this is kinda risky as it wastes bullets, is hard to aim with, and leaves one a bit open if the enemy can get away from the bullets..

Knights of Sidonia S2: Battle for Planet Nine review – 73/100

The second season of Sidonia makes a number of mistakes that a lot of second seasons do. That namely being that the anime slows down and introduces characters and conflicts that are often resolved in a undetermined to exist, third season. A new antagonist is introduced, whom does very little in the season and only […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 12

Tanikaze’s rendezvous with Benizumie looks to have been cut short as Izana interrupted with some hacker magic. The entire sequence being as uncomfortable and disturbing as you could imagine. I still wonder just what was her goal in doing all this to Tanikaze. Was it some method of killing him or just some really kinky […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 11

It’s quite the coincidence that both shows I am covering have decided to use their last episodes to make up for the season’s shortcomings. This will be a short post as while action packed episodes are great to watch, they make it hard to bring up topics to talk about. Guana look to be imitating […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 10

Unfortunately this wasn’t the time for Izana to become an ace pilot though she did at least show some ingenuity in her escape from gauna. Instead the spotlight falls once again to Tsugumi and Tanikaze. A lot of the fight scenes before the challenger appeared was to shown that Tsugumi and Tanikaze have great teamwork […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 23

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 9

Though the majority of the episode was of the same antics I have been complaining about in previous episodes, it’s nice to see Sidonia get back to what it does best. Dire situations and sci-fi mecha action. Izana being pushed into the role of scouting with a new weapon has to be the best path […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 22

A fairly uneventful episode this week.In some ways for me that’s good as it allows me to go into detail about the nature of the ever so popular CGI dolpins. But first let’s speak about what happened. Our three heroes had a strategy meeting discussing how to deal with Gilgamesh and the grail while all […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 8

I think something is wrong when I consider a protagonist from a movie these characters are watching a more compelling lead than our current one. I was surprised when starting the episode to see a sudden rise in visual quality only for it to turn out to be a movie within an anime. Actually I […]

Little Witch Academia The Enchanted Parade – 81/100

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment.

Shirobako Review – 80/100

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

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 […]
