* 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.

to:

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Ohkawa commented in the Clamp no Kiseki guides that the first half was carefully written so that the young readers would understand it as she believes her stories tend to be complicated. Come second half...
* GrowingTheBeard: The Acid Tokyo arc is considered the moment the series changed from a light-hearted adventure story to something darker and more dramatic, most tellingly [[spoiler:revealing that the Syaoran the group had been traveling with was a clone, having Fai lose one of his eyes and show cracks in StepfordSmiler act, introducing crossover characters from the much angstier ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' series, and making the role of the BigBad much more prominent and ominous]] This was also picked up by watchers of the anime, noting that the {{OVA}}s were a different tone altogether, possibly because of CLAMP dropping BeeTrain.

* HarsherInHindsight: When Syaoran and company arrive in Acid!Tokyo, half of the city is submerged and several building are destroyed. 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.
* HilariousInHindsight: In Tokyo [[IncrediblyLamePun Syaoran is an adventurer who takes an arrow to the knee]]. [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Sounds familiar]]?

At the end of the manga, Fai gets to fight a bunch of similar mooks, but this time, due to [[spoiler: his new nature as a vampire]], he is the one fighting with identical claws.

* 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.
* AwesomeMusic: Even with all the hate the anime received for its shameless padding and deviations from the manga, its soundtrack by Creator/YukiKajiura is unanimously considered ''gorgeous''.



** The anime version of Tsubasa. Some fans, particularly non-manga readers enjoy its AdaptationExpansion such as Kurogane's backstory as well as its AwesomeMusic by Yuki Kajiura, others dislike it for its poor pacing, endless fillers, and lack of faithfulness to the story tones. CLAMP agrees with the latter.

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.

* DisappointingLastLevel: Each of Tsubasa's world has an [[JigsawPuzzlePlot understandable coherent plot]], good pacing as well as healthy doses of CharacterDevelopment for everyone. The CerebusSyndrome in Tokyo cemented that with multiple well done and foreshadowed plot twists. Then Clow Country showed up and CLAMP [[MindScrew continuously made their plot more and more complicated until fans are unable to even understand WTF is going on]] starting when [[spoiler: Syaoran and Watanuki are revealed to be the same person]]. Not helping the fact is the pacing has suddenly slowed down with Kurogane and Fai not receiving as much screen time as Syaoran and Sakura. The EsotericHappyEnding and the continuous flashbacks does not help the case.

** ''Tokyo Revelations'' and ''Tsubasa Shunraiki'' on the other hand are far less frowned upon because the art, pacing and animation are worlds better than the anime. Not to mention that it actually follows the manga up to 90% of the time and the other 10% can be forgiven.
