Petition Against BeeTrain Butchery of Tsubasa RC sign now

This is a formal petition to the Japanese animation company BeeTrain.

BeeTrain are the company responsible for taking the manga series Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE (drawn and written by immensely popular manga circle CLAMP) and turning it into an anime (an animated version of the manga).
Fans were at first delighted to hear that Tsubasa, currently one of the most popular manga series in Japan, would be turned into a series of animated episodes. Fan feeling quickly changed however, when it was realised what a terrible job was being done.
Tsubasa had been completely dumbed-down. Turned into a shoddy animation aimed at children. Alcohol use, gambling and violent scenes that would scare children were completely removed and much of the plotline was cut and altered, as well as new scenes and storylines being introduced by BeeTrain.

We know that CLAMP themselves are very unhappy with the way the anime has been handled from their interviews. BeeTrain (and broadcasting company NHK) dont seem to care.

BeeTrains blatent disregard for the fans of Tsubasa reached its peak in Season 2 of the anime (which began to air 29th of April 06 in Japan). Many changes were made to CLAMPs original plotline with worlds visited being moved around or even removed completely! Many key, fan-favorite scenes from the manga were also completely removed, replaced with poorly written scenes created entirely by BeeTrain.

15 out of the 24 episodes in Season 2 were written entirely by BeeTrain! This leaves only 9 episodes that follow CLAMPs original storyline and even those episodes have many things changed or removed, or different scenes added by BeeTrain.
Worse, BeeTrain constantly alter canon relationships between the characters of Tsubasa to suit their own needs. Inserting their own plot-impacting opinions and theories and attempting to pass them off as solid fact.

If you are sick and tired of having to watch this egotistical company, who clearly think they can write Tsubasa better than its creators, destroy a wonderful work of art that you love, please sign this petition! Season 3 has just gone into production and will begin at a very crucial point in the manga!

A formal letter, along with all of your responces will be sent to NHK and BeeTrain.

    I want a better, more skilled team that can follow CLAMP's beautiful plotline to take over. I don't care if they start from Season 1, episode 1. I just want BeeTrain to stop butchering the anime even further! It's preposterous that they remove episodes an

    I know many manga series are somewhat killed during the transformation to anime, but doesn't most of that usually happen during the translation into English? If the Tsubasa anime is already this bad before it is translated, I shudder to think what will ha

    Anime should follow the manga and be altered so little that you can't tell the difference, or not at all!

    I am torn on the issue of Bee Train's version of Tsubasa. One one hand, the soundtrack is excellent and the animation bearable (although the characters seem stiff and emotionless at times, especially in the long moments when they seem to do nothing but st

    Why do people think that the story HAS to be changed from the manga to the anime?... It ruins the whole aura of the art and story.

    The only thing that BeeTrain has the right to do is air something. If they think they can do better, they should write their own and design it themselves. CLAMP put a lot of work to make Tsubasa RC what they knew it should be.
