While there are a few Abridged Series of CLAMP's Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- out there, two are particularly notable. Emerging at around the same time, they take very different (but equally entertaining) approaches to the series.

Also be sure to check out their interaction with respect to the Abridged War which is quite frankly hilarious.

ChibiTotalObelisk's Series

"Argh! I'm getting attacked by my own handwriting!"

Very heavy on shout outs and pop culture references. Surprisingly successful (considering this is a CLAMP series) in downplaying the Ho Yay.

The series stopped at episode 10 and as of 7th October 2011 Chibi Total Obelisk's YouTube account had been taken down.

This show provides examples of:
  • Berserk Button: Nobody insults Lucky Star
  • Black Comedy Rape: In episode 10 Fay rapes the Angelic Layer rference.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Sakura's first appearance
  • Leitmotif: Kurogane and Syaoran's theme songs appear to be the source of their fighting abilities
  • Small Reference Pools: Averted and Lampshaded “ when Syaoran becomes convinced that Dr. Kyle is the Valeyard, no-one has a clue what he's talking about.
  • Shout-Out: Lots of them, the series also claims to be "The first abridged series to include a Doctor Who reference"!
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Fay points this out in the trailer closely followed by various spellings scrolling up the screen (including Flip, F*ck and Flippin Eck!)

  • Talking to Himself: To be expected in an abridged series. ChibiTotalObelisk does nearly all the voice in the series while his brother has made a few appearances so far as Kiishimu Lady Constance De Covelete (and her evil servant) and one of the Overfiend's obesse sons.

** JuliaZeeGreat's Series

As a CLAMP-ophile, Julia tends to make more references to other CLAMP series and push the CLAMP related tropes further than other Tsubasa Abridged Series. Unlike ChibiTotalObelisk, she turns the Ho Yay Up to Eleven.
This show provides examples of:


How well does it match the trope?
