For anybody interested, check out chibiyuuto’s blog to see chinese raws and a translation at what’s being said in Tsubasa World Chronicle’s first chapter!
First off, it’s a great sign that Fuuma and Seishirou are being introduced so early on in the story. I wasn’t interested in the vampire subplot the first time around, but after reading X and Tokyo Babylon, I’m desperate to see what happens to these incarnations of Seishirou and Subaru!
One of the key things that I wanted to be addressed in TWC was elaborating on a scene that Kurogane and Fai had in Clow Country, when Kurogane admits to Fai that he didn’t tell him or Syaoran about his arm troubling him. I was interested in how Kurogane hiding his own pain compares to how he told Fai not to hide the pain of his past. I think Kurogane’s excess drinking might be a piece in that same puzzle, but we’ll have to see.
It looks like a good start though. (and how can I object to how adorable Fai is with his longer hair?)
