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!

WHY MUST YOU REMIND ME OF THIS CLUSTERFUCK?

/weeps

I hated it SO MUCH. Leave CCS ALONE CLAMP. That was by far the best manga you ever did, imho. and you ruined it with trc.

Total cluster fuck. Couple of years when I had NT left to spend at the airport I actually bought a couple volumes of Tsubasa. So ashamed.

Here's a question: Is there anyone you like Touya with in CCS?

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...

TRC had such an interesting premise. I actually liked the first couple of volumes where it seemed to be going into the 'you can't have your cake and eat it too' territory of love story. AND THEN EVERYTHING BLOWS UP AND I DON'T WANT TO REMEMBER THAT IT EXISTS ANYMORE WHY MUST YOU REMIND ME.

And seriously : xxxHolic was one of my favourite things ever until it turned out that Watanuki is just, you know, another Syaoran. It's still got killer atmosphere, but god....must the entire universe be populated by Syaoran before CLAMP is satisfied? I would've liked xxxHolic much better if it was just a regular semi-episodic youkai story. It was awesome when it was just that.

I stopped reading TRC so long ago (the moment I heard "vampires" and "clones" I got the fuck out of there) that I refuse to accept that it's connected to CCS in any way. HELL NO I'M NOT LISTENING YOU WILL NOT MAKE DISLIKE CCS, EVER.

And CLAMP will never write something as brilliant as CCS, true fact. Maybe Chun Hyang, if it wasn't so damn short :/
