Yes, you love Syaoran, I know, you love Syaoran so much, he's the light of your life, you love him so much, you just love Syaoran, i KNOW , you love Syaoran you fucking love Syaoran ok i know, i get it, YOU LOVE SYAORAN. I GET IT.
I’m even more amused because over here actually do have a library called the Central Library. And it is, in fact, also the largest one, and the place where they keep the rarest and most expensive books in the collection. So this is all scarily accurate to me.
Especially the part where you tell people that the book is in a different library
and then they get you to clarify that the library you just said is not actually the one you’re currently standing in
because that happens a lot too
I MEAN NONE OF THIS IS UNFAMILIAR TO ME JUST YET
YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY TRY TO STEAL BOOKS
FROM A LIBRARY
GUYS THOSE ARE FREE BOOKS YOU DON’T HAVE TO STEAL THEM IT’S A LIBRARY WE GIVE THOSE TO YOU FOR FREE
I enjoy the fact that this is far from a happy announcement. But then, I mean, how many of them have that many pleasant memories to begin with? Odds are this is gonna be terrible.
I mean, except for Sakura. She probably has the highest ratio of good to bad memories, but she doesn’t even HAVE them all. And besides, if we’re at the ruins it’s not exactly boding well for the possibility of a fun trip.
ALSO DO YOU THINK FAI IS RELIEVED THAT THE MEMORY MAGIC DIDN’T USE HIS MEMORIES THIS TIME AS WELL?
OR DO YOU THINK HE KNOWS SOMETHING ABOUT THE RUINS?
WE CAN’T SEE HIS FACE AND IT’S MAKING ME SUSPICIOUS.
Oh, ok. That makes a lot more sense.
But also, if other people set this up, how many people have experienced this part of Sakura’s memories? How many people have seen this part of her that even SHE doesn’t have back yet?
I think I briefly mentioned this once, but as odd as the whole clone Syaoran being Tsubasa’s father is strange,
it is really quite fascinating what CLAMP did.
There is already a lot of Yin and Yang symbolism with the
Syaoran’s in artwork, magic circles, and even the representation of R!Syaoran’s
soul. But when you put into context Yin and Yang symbolism with both the clone
and the real Syaoran in their existence itself, they literally can’t exist
without the other.
Without Real Syaoran Clone Syaoran couldn’t be cloned, with
out C!Syaoran R!Syaoran couldn’t be born; they co-exist when still being two
indenities just as Yin and Yang are. This going even further because both of
them share the same existence like Yin and Yang; the fact that R!Syaoran’s soul
is a Yin and Yang symbol could even stem from being born of C!Syaoran, because
both are a part of the other, thus something like splitting and giving a half
of the soul was symbolic. Further because of the paradox time loop it
is an endless set of events circling each other (until broken anyway) just like
Yin and Yang circling each other in motion. Within the original planned opening
of the second season of Tsubasa, CLAMP worked on storyboards, and the ending of
the opening were the two Syaoran’s circling each other like Yin and Yang (much
like that one piece of artwork), and even the fact that once they both face
each other in Nihon R!Syaoran is wearing white
C!Syaoran is wearing black representing Yang, visually you can see the influence of the symbolism in play. It really is quite brilliant how they’ve managed
to work so much symbolism in everywhere.
I’m about 75% sure that the new Cardcaptor Sakura series will revolve around - or possibly start - with its tie-in to Tsubasa: RESeRVoir CHRoNIcle.
In Tsubasa, CCS!Sakura gives her Star Wand to Clone Sakura in a dream. (Clone Sakura then trades the Wand to Yuuko to ensure real!Syaoran/her son’s safe passage to the land where Princess Sakura lives.) The left image above shows what she’s wearing in this scene - her middle school uniform, which we see briefly at the end of the CCS manga (right image).
The new CCS series will take place during Sakura’s first year in middle school and starts with a ‘strange dream’. Will that dream be about the Sakuras and Syaorans in Tsubasa? Strange dreams are how a lot of CCS!Sakura’s adventures have started, but given how much of Tsubasa’s communication is done through dreams, I think it’s a real possibility.
Hey! I only read TRC until the Tokyo revaluations arc.. So I'm a bit confused..? I know there is C!Syaoran.. But how many syaorans and sakuras are there?! Can you make a little chart or something? :( I'm so confused because everyone keeps talking about them and the CCS Sakura and Syaoran... Aaaaaaa?!?!?!
Ok, I’d try! I don’t want to spoil you everything so I’m gonna make it simple:
The first Syaoran we see is Clone!Syaoran, he was the one who travelled the worlds along with Clone!Sakura, Fai and Kurogane. He sacrificed himself to save Real!Syaoran in front of Fei Wang Reed.
The first Sakura (*) we see is the one who belongs to the alternate version of Clow Country (not R!Sakura). When the feathers are gathered her body and soul are cloned and the original body is destroyed by Fei Wang Reed. So Clone!Sakura is the one who travelled with Syaoran and the others. After Tokyo, her body and soul are divided in Infinity arc, and then her soul is “killed” in Nihon Country
When both, C!Syaoran and C!Sakura (soul), are “death” (sort of, because they can’t die since they are just creations), Yuuko gives them another chance to live. They are reincarnated into another world. So now we have a reincarnated C!Syaoran and C!Sakura.
In this new world, C!Syaoran and C!Sakura have a child, he’s Real!Syaoran (yeah it’s a paradox). He is sent by C!Syaoran and C!Sakura to the “original” Clow Country, where Real!Sakura lives.
To sent R!Syaoran to Clow Country, C!Sakura had to pay a high price. She meets CCS!Sakura in a dream. CCS!Sakura gives her the star wand so C!Sakura can paid for her wish. This is the only connection between CCS and TRC we have seen so far.
In Clow Country, R!Sakura is cursed to death by Fei Wang Reed, so R!Syaoran, in his attempt so save her, wishes to turn back time and Fei Wang does it but he takes R!Syaoran prisoner. Fei Wang clones R!Syaoran’s body (not soul) and that’s how C!Syaoran was “born”. But since he didn’t have a soul and Fei Wang wanted him only to gather the feathers, R!Syaoran decides to give him a piece of his soul to him, so C!Syaoran could develop his own soul later.
The wish R!Syaoran did distorts all the worlds, so once the time is turned back, there’s a new version of Clow Country where another Sakura (*) lives. Here is whereFei Wang leaves C!Syaoran (and we are back at point 1 c:).
This is a very short summary, hope you can understand! :D
Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card and foreshadowing the hell out of Tsubasa
In which I go through the second CCS movie and pick out all the parallels it has with the general premise of Tsubasa: The Reservoir Chronicle. Because there’s more than I initially thought there was, and it’s going to bug me if I don’t.
