I was so surprised at first, I thought the last time we had xxxHOLiC 166, we are talking ’bout food and that mysterious lady client Watanuki was tasked to coach but reading this recent chapter, I was so sure this was where Tsubasa last ended and the Holic seemed to have kept up in its pace.
Tsubasa Chronicles 201 revealed that Syaoran and Watanuki is but one person! Impossible?
Continuing the enigma last time, Yuuko is having an award winning monologue! Looking at the mountain of treasures in her storage room, she uttered that those things weren’t just there because she likes it nor collects it but all those were in there for a purpose until that ‘fated day’…
It was revealed that Sakura’s old wand used to collect the Clow cards is a fake, however the star wand is the real McCoy, given up as a price but its not the only one…there are two, separated for the children they love! Watanuki and Syaoran.
The egg that Sakura-hime collected as witnessed in the Tokyo Revelations OVA became two. Watanuki gave the other to Himawari as Tanpopo and the other that hasn’t hatched yet was given to Doumeki. Is that for Syaoran? Its mission is yet to unfold.
Ever wonder why Syaoran and Watanuki though one person bears different names, faces and even birthdays? Surely, it was to keep the secret child out of Fei Wang Reed’s gaze, an old magic. But because Watanuki is a being that isn’t supposed to exist, but did exist to fill in the void because Syaoran wished to turn back time, his life too is endangered but Yuuko wouldn’t allow it would she?
Now the thing with the parents, Watanuki’s parents as we all know died in a car accident. Those are CCS’ Shaoran and Sakura! However, it is only in that world where Watanuki and Yuuko lives in and probably not in the real world where Syaoran came from!
First of all, what a sudden turn of events! It has been a wild ride with Tsubasa and now this chapter?
What happened with that lady client’s case? Was it already over?
CLAMP has many surprises and I applaud them being able to back up their stories despite the many twists and questions they throw at their reading audiences. That’s why I like them, they always want to make us think!
I was about to write an editorial about Syaoran and Watanuki and their parents but I guess there’s no need for it as xxxHOLiC 167 answered them all, though not everything as there are still many things that are yet to be disclosed.
I was really depressed upon learning that CCS’ Shaoran and Sakura might be killed by CLAMP at this point but it was a big relief that they weren’t totally! ^,^;
But why would CLAMP not show Mom Sakura and Dad Shaoran’s older faces! It’s unfair! I wanna see them badly! ♥
Sheesh, I’ve read the chapter once more and I might be wrong but Watanuki is the real child after all? And that Syaoran image is just a fake? It was there in the watch Watanuki paid Yuuko back then, the picture! This is terrible! I wonder why CLAMP have been giving us some thoughts that Syaoran isn’t his real name! Which one is it really?
Looking at Tsubasa’s perspective, it was Watanuki who was born out of Syaoran’s wish but here in Holic, our Syaoran might be a fake?!
Ouch, my head hurts so much!
