* FanficFuel: Since the premise is Syaoran and his friends traveling around the multiverse, there would be a lot of crossover fanfics on them going to other non-CLAMP multiverses.

** So why does Sakura act distant to the [[spoiler: Real Syaoran]] in the Infinity World? Is it because of what the dream told her to do? Is it because she couldn't accept him, even blaming him for her most precious friend leaving her? Or is it because she knows that she isn't the [[spoiler: Sakura]] that [[spoiler:Syaoran]] is looking for? Either way, she apologized to [[spoiler: Syaoran]] for it upon the final match.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Some fans like to consider Clow Reed's wish for Yuuko to continue living as romantically motivated, and quote his line to Sakura in chapter 138 ("Being apart from the one you like, no matter how old you are, is a lonely thing. And while apart, I'm wishing for that person to be happy.") as a hint of it. On the other hand, considering CLAMP's views on love and relationships, it would not be necessary for his feelings for her to be romantic.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Some fans like to consider Clow Reed's wish for While not saying it outright, the series does a good work implying that there was definitely something going between Yuuko to continue living as romantically motivated, and Clow. Fans of the pairing tend to quote his line to Sakura in chapter 138 ("Being apart from the one you like, no matter how old you are, is a lonely thing. And while apart, I'm wishing for that person to be happy.") as a hint of it.

* EndingAversion: Both the manga and anime, for different reasons. The manga, especially, mostly because of the [[MindScrew final arc.]] Then again the final volume is praised for ShowDontTell as it actually explores the MindScrew and makes it nonexistent in the end.

Added DiffLines:

* GatewaySeries: ''Tsubasa'' is the medium which many people cite as their gate to the complex multiverse of CLAMP, counting specially on the people who watched it thinking it was somehow related to ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' without knowing its crossover nature.

* WTHCastingAgency: The Spanish dub of the movie (which came to Spain before the anime itself, which was dubbed in another company) received a overwhelmingly negative reception. Aside from the bad translation, which was bad enough to have the very title wrong, most complaints focused in the even worse casting choices, pointing out that it looked as if the voice actors had been chosen at random.

** The third world visited by the party, the unhabited Fog Country, is shown to contain just a mysterious tiny city on the bottom of a lake, guarded by a shiny whale and without trace of a feather. Mokona states at the end of the chapter that she got confused by the power on the city, and they leave the world to go to the Jade Country. What was this power or the nature of the city are never explained, and they feel singularly out of the narrative.

In the manga, Syaoran obtained a scale from the fish that served as the "sun" to the city, which they ground up and later used to help them track Kyle in Jade. The anime had this AdaptedOut, however, causing it to become a BLAM.

** During the second half of the Tokyo arc, when Sakura, having obtained the item needed to pay the price, encountered dead spirits (in the manga) or [[Anime/CardCaptorSakura Sakura Kinomoto]] (in the OVA) that helped her return to where the other companions are. This scene is never elaborated upon and is never mentioned again.
** An anime exclusive segment in the fourth episode where Sakura suddenly wakes up and talks with the other Hanshin Republic characters but not Syaoran or the others despite only having one feather where after some time, returns to sleep. So out of context that you can remove this episode and nothing will change.

** ''Tsubasa World Chronicle'' seemed to gather some contention within the fanbase. Some were happy that CLAMP is bringing back the series after its confusing ending and that they will fix the flaws that the last previous chapters had been suffering. Others are dissatisfied that CLAMP put their other two ongoing works ( ''Drug and Drop'' and ''Gate 7'') on a hiatus just to work on this and that they should have continue them along with the other series, like ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', which had been put on a hiatus for a decade. For now, the sequel and ''xxxHolic:Rei'' are on CLAMP's work load and fans of their other works are certainly [[{{Understatement}} not pleased]].

*** The Spanish dub of the anime has its own Broken Base about Rosa Vivas's performance as Sakura (whose VA was the only in the cast which didn't return from ''Cardcaptor Sakura'' for the common characters). Some like it in the belief that it portrays nicely the character's fragility and cuteness, while others consider it a poor performance and think that it just makes Sakura look stoned all the time.
* TheChrisCarterEffect: The series's notorious KudzuPlot often struggles not to lose fans after they get tired of its length and increasing MindScrew relations with other CLAMP works, especially '''xxxHolic''. It happens especially with the fans who were introduced to the series by the anime, which as mentioned above contains tons of filler and lacks a conclusion.
* CompleteMonster: Fei Wang Reed is an ArtificialHuman that is born from Clow Reed's unconscious desire to resurrect Yuuko; thus he desires to bring Yuuko back to life. However, in his attempts to accomplish this, he deliberately ruined the lives of millions of people across multiple dimensions, including Fai's curse and Kurogane's hometown. When he first appeared to Syaoran in Clow Country, Fei Wang implanted a death seal on Sakura on her 7th birthday which will either kill her on her 14th birthday or force Syaoran to break the taboo by rewinding 7 years back, thus making his wish possible. Once he is forced to do the latter, he abducted Syaoran and clones him in order to have him find Sakura's memory feathers that will be scattered into multiple dimensions. From then on, he manipulates the movements of Clone Syaoran and his new-found friends as they gather the feathers until their confrontation, where he intends for Syaoran to collect the feathers and to gain a map between dimensions withing Sakura's body, in hopes of being able to accomplish his goal. Having no remorse for all the people and [[BadBoss minions]] he sacrificed or the dimensions he crumbles, Fei Wang's desire to bring back Yuuko is not because he cares about her, but because he wants to prove that he is better than Clow.

This can be a likely situation if Tokyo is devastated by an earthquake and tsunami which is similar to what had happened in the Tohoku region many years later. Given that the characters who were in this world were from ''X/1999'' which suffered delays with a prolonged hiatus due to mirroring RealLife events, it's probably harsher.
