Tsubasa Chronicle is a fantasy anime program based on the Shojo manga series Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, published by Kodansha from 2003 to 2009. Created by CLAMP, the series features alternate versions of characters from their previous works, including X and Chobits.
The series begins in the country of Clow, where the princess Sakura loses her memories due to a mysterious spell. Her friend (and love interest) Syaoran enlists the help of the space-time witch Yūko, granting Syaoran the ability to travel between worlds. He is joined by exiled warrior Kurogane and the magician Fai, who for various reasons cannot return to their native realities. Together they travel from world to world, seeking out Sakura's lost memories (which have taken the form of large feathers), the power of which often causes trouble to those who encounter them.
The series is notable for the various characters that the protagonists meet on their journey, many of which are alternate reality versions of characters from other CLAMP works. The main characters of Sakura and Syaoran are based on the protagonists from Cardcaptor Sakura, and most of the people from their world are based on supporting characters from that series.
Tsubasa does directly cross over with ×××HOLiC, another CLAMP work that has been adapted into an animated movie and series. The characters of Yūko and Watanuki that appear in Tsubasa are in fact, the exact same as those appearing in ×××HOLiC.

The Tsubasa Chronicle anime was cut off before the actual ending in the manga series. The anime version ended just before the Tokyo arc, and nine filler episodes were added instead.
Two OVAs were released, one featuring the Tokyo arc (Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations) and the other featuring the Nihon/Dream World arc (Tsubasa: Shunraiki).
