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:

    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

    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.

    Here’s the first episode of Tsubasa Chronicles. You can see the whole season at http://www.rpgnstream.com

    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

    @Topgavin, I remember that being three panels in the manga but yep, they just had to amp it up. Sigh…

    Also in regards to the bat scene. I just thought of Evangelion. I suppose that’s what the director was going on. Since you’re reviewing that, I’ll leave at that.

    I agree to a certain level the padding at the beginning. I suppose I didn’t mind since it at least was like a standard Batman episode (of the latter seasons). I think what bugs me is that the portrayal of Batman wasn’t very good, I think he’s emotionless for the most part. And like I’ve said, on the technical side it isn’t as striking as the novel. It’s like when Gyo was adapted (to be fair that’s also because like Berserk it had a lot of CGI).

Mob Psycho 100 – 02/03

This may be a surprise to some so I better start this with an explanation. As you know I originally planned to cover Berserk this season and have put up reviews of the last two episodes. However due to Berserks rather disappointing quality, my desire to cover it has vanished. I doubt anyone wants to […]

orange – 04

Orange takes it very slowly this week, even slower than its standard. Indeed, we can summarize the plot of the first 15 minutes just by one sentence: After Kakeru dating with another girl, Naho feels brokenhearted and avoids Kakeru like a plague. Which actually makes sense. After all, the guy already had a girlfriend so […]

Thunderbolt Fantasy – 03

With this episode we basically get an idea where the show will head for the rest of the series and I pretty much enjoy the direction they taking so far. Of course it makes sense that in order to get past those obstacles, the band needs to ally with others who are most suitable for […]

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei – 03

Plenty of action this week as we have faceoffs between Beatrice and Illya with Gil and Angelica firing legendary weapons back and forth. I wish there was a bit more fight animation here as while it was the same in the manga, it’s still a shame to have the scene cut away just when the […]

Seeing as things didn’t quite go to plan for Avilio last episode, it’s now time for him to prove his innocence to Nero. Avilio is playing his cards right and things would have gone to plan if it wasn’t for the man who lead them to Fango before. He states out of curiosity that he […]

Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World – 17

EVA 01b

Neon Genesis Evangelion – 01

Truth be told, I’ve never seen any of the EVA franchise, and it’s not normal since EVA is a must for any anime viewer. I don’t really know the reason why I keep myself from watching it, maybe both because mecha is not my favorite genre, and the hype of EVA is just overwhelming that […]

Berserk - 03 2

Berserk(2016) – 03

Forgive me for the delay on this particular post but I must admit that in light of Berserks quality my interest in covering it has somewhat declined. I know that for every episode to come I will have to dance around the elephant in the room but this series isn’t making that easy for me. […]

Orange 03d

Orange – 03

So this week we finally encounter a love rival. Of course with a romance drama show like Orange there had to be someone who would stand on their way right? Except there’s not much of a rival really since Naho never stands a chance against the new girl Ueda. As she learns hard and clear […]

Oh Square Enix, this is the kind of avant-garde work you need to do. Developed by Furyu with the people behind SaGa, and written by Masato Kato of Chrono Trigger, I knew I was in for a unique game right from the start. But its gameplay is certainly divisive and for good reason, as this […]

Flying witch Review – 86/100

As I mentioned in one of my weekly posts, most of the reason why a slice-of-life anime show don’t work well is not because there’s nothing happen, but more because the cast isn’t interesting enough or the show tends to repeat the things that we already know. I’m happy to say that this is not […]
