The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country. As a result, Sakura's memories are scattered to different dimensions, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?

Card Captor Sakura isnt part of the Tsubasa series but it does give another view on the main characters, Li and Sakura, and shows how deep their relationship is. You get a better understanding of the two characters in this series.

In Tsubasa Chronicle, the characters are the same as the characters from Card Captor Sakura. Tsubasa Chronicle has some romance, and comedy, just like Card Captor Sakura. If you enjoyed this anime, start watching CCS!~


If you liked Tsubasa Chronicle then you would like Cardcaptor Sakura because it provides a deeper understanding of the characters. You get to watch Sakura and Li's relationship with one another grow, and better understand why King Touya is so protective of Sakura in Tsubasa Chronicle. Cardcaptor Sakura also contains the same mixture, and maybe a little more in some cases, of comedy, drama and magic that is present in Tsubasa Chronicle.


The main characters... similar? They are the same! I don't mean a slight difference or behaviour or anything. They are the same in practically every aspect!

The story may be different but the two main characters and their affection for one another hasn't changed. In fact you'll probably learn more about the other characters seeing both series.

Both series feature the elements of magic & adventure.

I would seriously recommend this to you if you haven't heard of this series already.


Tsubasa Chronicle and Card Captor Sakura have the same main characters but at different ages and in different worlds. They are alike in a lot of ways and are both a creation of Clamp. :)


Since CCS and Tsubasa have the same main characters, it's really fun to watch both series. However don't expect to see the same thing, as the characters act different. That's good, or else they'd be a boring watch!


Both of these great anime are both made by CLAMP. Their beautiful drawing and characters are very similar in style. They both follow great storylines and have magical situations. Pdersonally I enjoyed both of them and I think you will too.


Tsubasa Chronicle 'gueststars' a lot of different animecharacters, most noticably the main characters from Card Captor Sakura. It makes for a great reunion with 'old friends', as they adventure onwards in a new world.

Both series are also a quest for lost items and shares a lot of elements in their story buildup.


Cardcaptor Sakura and The Tsubasa Chronicles are two interesting interrelated stories. Both stories contain Sakura and Syaoran as two main characters. Cardcaptor Sakura of course focuses primarily on Sakura, while Syaoran is the protagonist of Tsubasa Chronicles. While the characters are act somewhat differently, (they are older in Tsubasa), it is hard to not enjoy both, and neither is an unrealistic progression. Also many elements from Cardcaptor Sakura are borrowed in Tsubasa, including Clow as a person, Kero, and most of the rest of the cast. If you have watched CCS, it is a delight and if you've seen only Tsubasa, it is interesting to see the characters in their original forms as well.


Personally, I believe that nothing can compare to CCS, however, if you loved TC, I strongly you watch CCS. It's very different in the sense of story telling, direction, plot, and even characters. In fact, you see similar faces but their personalities and values are all different.

The only reason I would recommend CCS after TC is because of the relationship that Sakura and Syaoran have. If you loved it in TC, the one in CCS is DEFINITELY more developed and a lot more definite. Given, the story it revolves around is different, however, CCS is the original and you cannot beat the original =) It's a lot more childish too... with the "monsters" they have to beat, and the characters are younger, but I still find their relationship more pure that way.


Not only are the main characters the same in name, but more or less in personality. If you supported the canon couple of one, you're likely to support the other.

Both series are Mahou Shoujo(Magical girl), and are filled with mysteries and captivating, lovable characters. Both female leads are endearing and, for girls at least, easy to relate to in some situations. The same goes for you guys out there and the lead male. Also,both series spawned from a manga written by CLAMP, so the likely-hood of you liking both is very high if you liked one.

Enjoy, and I promise, you will!


If you're also looking for the cuter side of Sakura and Syaoran's relationship, then I recommend you watch Card Captor Sakura. They are based on CLAMP's earlier work, so if you need to do a background check then CCS is a must-see.


If you liked this anime then you're sure to love the other. I strongly think this because, firstly, both are from the same studio, Clamp. Secondly, both are about fantastical creatures, love, a world-wide struggle, and humans that must save the world. Thirdly, the animations are still both great. So watch the other today!


Tsubasa Chronicle is set in a distant parralel universe with your characters from CardCaptor Sakura including Saura, Syaoran, Clow, Touya, Yukito and more! This series also has magics incorporated like CardCaptor Sakura.


The main characters of these shows are the same, with some of the same personality traits. Fans of each will love the show just for this fact. But both shows have the same feel, worlds full of magic, and more questions than answers!



Kimihiro Watanuki is cursed with the ability to see evil spirits known as Youkai. Due to this power, the Youkai are attracted to him like a magnet, and each time he is close to being devoured. One day, fate drew him to a strange store and there, he met Yuuko, who was dressed in a very exquisite fashion. As destiny would have it, Yuuko has the ability to save Kimihiro from seeing the Youkai, but for a price: Kimihiro must work for Yuuko by performing chores around the store and other odd tasks, until she deems fit. With his "friend" Doumeki, and his secret crush Himawari, they will discover that the world they live in is nowhere close to ordinary!

The story of Tsubasa Chronicle and XXXHolic are very different, but the style in which it was done is the same. And the other simillarity is that this story revolves around the "Dimensional Witch" whom we already know from Tsubase Chronicle. (well, not only her, but mostly...)


Tsubasa Chronicle includes many of CLAMP's characters from their various anime. Most notably, Cardcaptor Sakura, Magic Knight Rayearth AND XXXHOLiC. Therefore if you like XXXHOLiC, you might find Tsubasa Chronicle to your liking.


Not only are both two of the greatest CLAMP masterpieces, but also both xxxHOLiC and Tsubasa are linked to each other. If you watch either of them, you'll notice that characters from both series are interacting with each other and even sharing information. That's why if you're watching one, I think you should watch the other.


Since both series have elements of the other, your watching experience of the story isn't complete if you haven't watched both. They are also great for Mokona fans since in both series there is a version of him full of mischief. Both series have comedy elements in them which makes them fun to watch.


Ever wandered what Yuuko aka "Dimensional Witch" really is and what she was doing while Syaoran and his friends were traveling between dimensions? Want more Mokona packed fun? Then you've got all the reasons to check this series out!


Although these series may look very different at the first sight they have one great similarity: in both Yuuko - dimensional witch plays a very important role. What is more the way events occur is kinda alike but nothing happens in exactly the same way so you won't get bored by watching something you have already watched. I hontni recommend it.


To watch one you have to see the other. As Tsubasa Chronicle is a conglomerate of all CLAMP characters.

One is of a journey that goes on between a group of people wanting to go to different countries for their own reasons. The other is of a woman called the dementional witch, Yuuko, that ties both series together. Both series also have a cute animal called Mokona.


If you've liked either of these two anime you are sure to like the other. The idea of fate and inevitablity is tossed around quite a bit in all each of them and furthermore there are several direct links between them, most noticably the dimensonal witch Yuuko, and (if you remember) the black mokona from the first episode of Tsubasa.

Both also are quite realistic in their plot developments though xxxholic more than Tsubasa.


Seeing as these series are both Clamp series, they have a similar structure, character designs and characters. Both have a lot of fantasy/spiritual stuff going on and a love story thrown in.


<html xmlns="">

It almost seems like I should just be able to type, CLAMP, and then "BAM!", its a perfect recommendation. The links between these two anime are so numerous, I really can't even list them all. The two anime actually share several characters, as Tsubasa borrows from many of CLAMPs works. The Art Style, character design, and general storyline are sure to have you making your own mental comparisons even in just the first episodes.


Both XXXHOLiC and Tsubasa Chronicle happen in the same 'multiverse' the Dimention witch, main character in XXXHOLiC is essential to the plot of Tsubasa Chronicle, additionally they have similarily Deep plots.  However the XXXHOLiC plot line is much more episodic while Tsubasa Chronicle has a  more traditional story arc.


Well where do i start... they are both very metaphysical and emothional and if you liked watching one, you'll be surprised to see yoko and mokona and other characters who show themselves in both series as strong supporting characters.


This is the anime about the space time witch that Syaoran gets help from.  The Mangas cross reference each other, however, only the anime for tsubasa references XXXholic.  Both animes were made by the same company.  The Tsubasa characters also make an appearance in Kobato.

Pandora Hearts

Pandora Hearts

On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius's fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more - thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy - he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person's body. However, there's a catch - in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain's power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice - a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization - a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it.  Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice's lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there's a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.

The element of fantasy, along with the search for the female protagonist's memories, brought Tsubasa Chronicles to mind instantly. Having watched both seasons of Tsubasa and just a few eps of Pandora Hearts, there are definately things that would attract the same kind of viewer.


both of Pandora Hearts and Tsubasa Chronicle series having common elements. characters , kind of music, magic, even a sort of the story relating like the main character is helping his girl to get  back  and collect her scattered memories.


Each of these series are driven by attempts to regain lost memories of a main character. Furthermore, there are some interesting things going on behind the scenes.


Lost memories? Check. Loyal guy/girl duo? Check. Willingness to protect the other no matter the cost? Check! These shows have much more in common than I mention, but if you enjoyed the elements I mentioned in one show give the other a shot and see just how similar they are!


<html xmlns="">

I couldn't even watch Pandora Hearts without comparing it to Tsubasa Chronicle in my mind. Both anime have a character who has lost their memories. But don't worry! Thats what they make ever-so-loyal friends for. You'll watch as our amnesiac's friend braves different dimensions and magical worlds in search of the lost memories, risking life and limb on the journey. But hey, you'd do the same for your buddy, right?


Both Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and Pandora Hearts follow a lead character, Alice in Pandora Hearts and Sakura in Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, who is trying to get her memories back. There's a male lead who's helping her and giving her support, who are Syaoran from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and Oz from Pandora Hearts.Along with this basic story, there is one main character similarity. Xerxes Break from Pandora Hearts is very similar to Fai Flourite from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. They smile the same way and there's a lot of spoilers in both series that give them many similarities.Both series have a good mix of drama, action, and comedy. Pandora Hearts has a darker feel than Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle does, however, so be prepared if you haven't seen Pandora Hearts yet.


The fantasy, the darker themes than what both shows were clearly inspired by or based on(Alice in Wonderland for Pandora Hearts and Cardcaptor Sakura for Tsubasa Chronicle), and the having to find the lost memories of the female protagonist are shared between the show.  That being said, Pandora Hearts is somewhat darker than Tsubasa Chronicle, and the characters are very different in both.  If you enjoyed one, you would probably enjoy the other.  



Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.

Both series are, well, collecting series. Someone's looking either for shards of a jewel or feathers of memories. In the end, both series are romantic and have concluded episodes. Not to mention, both are yet to finish!


In both tsubasa chronicles and inuyasha have a very similar plot, in one they are looking for jewl shards and in the other they are looking for memory feathers but in the end they both have comedy, plenty of romance and alot of adventures. so if you like tsubasa chronicles you'd also like inuyasha.


In both, the female lead is looking for scattered items (feathers and shards), with the help of a male lead and several companions. There is also a cute creature along (Kiara and Makona). There is a bit of humor and romance as well, and a bunch of fighting. I'm sure if you enjoyed one you will like the other.


Both are questing series and both series have a main character longing to be 'seen' by the other.  In Tsubasa Syoaran is longing to regain the life he had with Sakura before her memories were scattered and hopefully regain with them the possibilities of a life with her; while in Inuyasha, Kagome wants Inuyasha to see her for who she is, not who she looks like and hopefully have him look to the future (maybe with her) instead of dwelling in the past. 


In both series the main character wanders the world looking for the fragments of something in order to once again make it whole.

There are strong protective feelings towards the girl from the boy in both of these anime, and also a sense of love. In both, the girl has some mysterious power and is sought after by enemies.


Both animes are great animes that involve fighting for the ones they love, though one is on a journey to go somewhere and one is on a journey to collect the girl's memories. They also both have romance, fighting, and all the other things that people crave or in an anime. :)


I believe that Elemental Gelade and Tsubasa Chronicle are alike in many ways, and that is why if you like one, you should like the other. First of all the protagonists are a boy and a girl who love each other and are gone into a mission for the sake of the girl. They have travelling companions in both animes, with whom they share great moments, but also sad ones, and meet other memorable characters. Also, you should find the music in EG somewhat resembling the one in TC, for it has that epic style in it.


Both are suburbly awesome with action at every turn and romance in plenty . . .but a sweet honest kind of romance. . Both have kind of the same music although elemental gelade not as much . . . and have strong leads that desire to protect the girl no matter what. I loved both equally! Very much a like
