Tsubasa Omnibus 3 by Kodansha Comics
(Note: The Tsubasa Series Is A Comic Book Series)
Syaoran and the motley crew of dimension hoppers continue hopping from one dimension to the next in their quest to find Sakura’s lost memories. Their journey has taken them to many different worlds both real and not so real. The most recent being the latter. The band has ended up in a virtual reality simulator which they don’t ever remember entering and so don’t realize they’re in. As their memory’s were wiped upon entering, to make the experience all the more real. So to them it seems as though they jumped straight from their last world to the virtual world, giving them the impression Sakura’s feather is nearer than it actually may be. They don’t remember ever landing in the theme park in which this virtual reality is situated, to them this world is all too real. Especially when Fai and Syaoron are killed by the very person who thought Syaoron how to fight back in Clow.
The Virtual Reality is filled with Oni or demons with the real players playing the part of Oni hunters, the goal for real time players being to hunt down these demons in return for payment from the in-game country’s government. The Oni are all grouped in accordance with their power ability, so the demon hunters have to work their way up the chain from weakest to strongest defeating them in turn to earn the right to face the next. The band are certain Sakura’s feather is in this virtual world. When they hear that the final Oni is rumoured to be human like in form and capable of controlling other Oni they think they’ve found the perfect candidate to hold such an item of power, could they be wrong? How else would it control the other Oni? As the walls between reality and virtual reality grow thinner who’s to say what’s feels real in the game isn’t actually real? If someone were to die in-game would they die in reality? Well they better hope not as Fai and Syraoron meet their ends. But after all it’s only just a game…isn’t it?
