The final volume of Tsubasa picks up right where volume 5 left off - with magician Fay seemingly dead, a sinister man named Seishirou in control of demons using Sakura's feather and the remaining characters, Kurogane and Syaoran en-route to take revenge.

As usual, most fans who have followed the series to this point will want to see it through, but that's no bad thing in the case of Tsubasa. The series has been fantastic, and volume 5 in particular was a highlight. The only drawback is that Tsubasa runs for a total of 52 episodes, and this is just the end of season 1...

The series finishes strongly, and if you haven't sampled Tsubasa yet, you now have the option of the box set to play with.

In terms of overall quality, the sound remains strong, the video transfer is solid if not spectacular (some pixellation in places) and the  extras are consistant (more on those at the foot of the review).

It's difficult to know what to say about this series that I haven't gushed about already - as a showcase to CLAMP's delicate style and ethereal themes it works wonderfully well. No one following the series to this point will be disapointed, and Tsubasa fans have much to look forward to with season 2.


Extras:

The usual series stalwarts are here. The world guide, character guide, Faces in the Crowd, trailers and textless opening/closing that we're used to all make an appearance, but the final episode features a commentary by the American VA cast. Whilst it's hardly illuminitating, it is quite fun and fans of the dub will likely appreciate the extra effort.

A solid end to a great show.
