The point of no return, the one wish that threw everything into chaos and granted Fei-Wang Reed his chance at his twisted desire is revealed at last in this crucial volume of Tsubasa. Syaoran fell right into the hands of the madman those several years ago in order to save Sakura’s life. In doing so, Syaoran took on an unimaginable burden of guilt. His actions have caused great pain and suffering. It also gave rise to a different path, a distorted future, and a new life that should not exist.

This is the volume that fans have been waiting for. It at last tells us exactly how Watanuki, from the xxxHolic series, and Syaoran are connected and how it came to pass. It sheds light on many things about both young men and casts them in a nightmarish dilemma where the question is ‘to exist, or not exist.’ Each has chosen and in so doing have created two new probabilities where anything could happen. Fei-Wang continues his machinations while Yuko strives to allow Watanuki and Syaoran to choose their own paths and in so doing perhaps save lives and thwart the twisted wish of Fei-Wang.

The latest chapters also hints at Syaoran’s connection to Could Reed and perhaps also to Fei-Wang.

During the battle a shocking turn of events occurs. A new choice has been made and with it, one cannot help but ponder the possibilities.

It is a story at this point where it is challenging to speak about it without giving away the astonishing events and secrets that are now unfolding. Tsubasa is a manga that holds a story that has become more captivating than ever as it nears its conclusion. The latest manga also holds a preview of the next volume in English along with cultural and translation notes.
