I'd warn for spoilers, but let's face it: I'm probably doing you a favor by spoiling this series for you if you're lucky enough to NOT have wasted your time reading this manga.


day.27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?
even pretty art couldn't save this love story
Syaoran/Sakura [Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE]


I want to make it clear that I love the Syaoran Li/Sakura Kinomoto pairing in Cardcaptor Sakura; they were my other contender for Day 18 and are definitely heavy-hitters for My OTP of All Time. I enjoyed how their relationship developed, tsundere!Syaoran and tennen!Sakura were fricking adorable, and the ending was warm and fuzzy and pretty good as far as shojo endings go.

Then CLAMP drew this clusterfuck of a manga called "Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE" and completely stomped on my shipper heart. The story was so convulted and terrible that it managed to kill almost all love I had for CLAMP as storytellers, but the number one crime that TRC committed was that it connected TRC!Syaoran/Sakura to CCS!Syaoran/Sakura... by making TRC!Syaoran the clone of the son of CCS!Syaoran/Sakura and setting him up with an alternate-dimension version of his own mother.

What the shit, CLAMP. 

The only justification I can come up for TRC's existence is that TRC is probably CLAMP's way of rick-rolling all the disgruntled X/1999 fans. (Yeah, I went there.)

Oh SNAP THIS MEME IS ALMOST OVER:
# Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?
# Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?
# Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever!

I still haven't finished reading TRC, and I'm not sure yet if I'll do it. For CLAMP to dare to ruin CCS through TRC...T_T

I don't dislike the pairing, but the whole thing is so damn twisted that it still gives me nightmares...

Don't waste your time... the story really falls apart around Volume 15 or so.

I still love CCS!Syaoran/Sakura to bits, though. I just like to pretend TRC didn't happen.

I actually read until Volume 26 or so, before getting myself too busy to keep up to date with it. It didn't particularly bother me; at that point, reading every new chapter was a headache that I didn't want to face xD

I hope xxxHolic doesn't get screwed /too/ badly as well because of TRC >_<
