Hopefully you have both seen and read the review for the first Season which was quite a shock to the whole anime community as they now tried to mash all their good characters into the same anime. What was more of a shock was that is was interesting, even if the scenery was changing so very often it will still kept you hooked and left you wonder what was going to happen next even if the overall story of all the fillers was not to good.
The second Season of Tsubasa Chronicle picks up directly from where the first season ended. The gang enters yet another parallel universe to search for Sakuras lost feathers. This is getting quite boring fast, i did say earlier that it was interesting, this was because of the characters. what was boring was that there is so much new worlds that never was in the Manga. If you have read the Manga you will notice that much of what happens in the anime you will never se anywhere in the Manga which is quite sad. just as the first season the massive fillers really killed something that could have been such a great anime.
One problem i find is how the writers used the time, they alongside with developing the main characters tried to developed the side characters of each universe more even if we will never se them again. The good thing is that this made the first half of the this season to have a good pacing and was entertaining as they explored the themes of friendship and memory when the past begins to catch up with our heroes.
But not all is bad, just like the season one the music is just where Tsubasa Chronicles shines. Yuki Kajiura composed a wonderful soundtrack for this season with many great songs. Trough all the songs available was my favorite was the opening song “it’s” who was made by Kotani Kinya. The music in my opinion is what enhances the viewing experience in the show.
Once again, just like the first season the animation is not not terrible but do not push the envelope to being great. If you put that aside the overall animation was smooth and good, the one thing that seemed to make it suffer was the budget. There where small places where the animation was just brilliant, but also other places where the animation had moments of repetition.
If you are going to watch Tsubasa Chronicles, watch the series first and then read the Manga to catch up with what you don’t get in the anime.
