Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Fans of Takaya's Fruits Basket may find Tsubasa a bit disappointing. Takaya's earlier work is a sprawling fantasy that lacks the originality and emotional impact of Fruits Basket. The weaker characters, mediocre artwork and poorly written and paced plot line does little to capture attention. The tale is set in a war-torn 22nd century mysteriously similar to Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, where luxury and amenities are reserved for the upper classes. The common people live for the legend of the Tsubasa, a magical glowing object said to grant wishes to all who see it-not unlike the dragon in Dragonball. To add to the pastiche of clichés, heroine Kotobuki the thief is monkeylike, similar to Goku. Despite the epic setting, much of the story focuses on Kotobuki's hackneyed romance with Raimon, a "genius" who dropped out of a prestigious army position in order to date her. The slow-building junior high-like romance ties together a series of nearly unrelated episodes. Two-thirds of the way through, the book has a satisfying ending, yet the story continues. Although the series was six volumes long in Japan, Tokyopop has made the excellent choice to publish it here in fewer, thicker volumes. (Mar.)

    Good story, very enjoyable

    This was a really good series. If you have read any other graphic novels by Natsuki Takaya you will enjoy this one. She writing is very distinct and her fans will enjoy this book. Great romance and action packed. Makes you feel good.

    Great story!

    This is really good. If you like Fruits Basket you will most likely like this too. You can tell that it was written before FB, she has progressed as a writer since this was written. However it is still very good and I highly recommend it. Read volume 1 first of course. I can't wait for volume 3!

    Not as good as Fruits Basket...

    But otherwise i thought it was a really good story. i just think that Natsuki Takaya progressed as she wrote Fruits Basket, so writing tsubasa before,her writing wasnt as good. but otherwise i loved the characters, especially Raimon. he reminded me of Shigure from Fruits Basket, and it made me really happy. i reccomend it to all Fruits Basket readers, or readers of Shojo-manga in general.
