I was a bit overjoyed today since there had been a few changes in the schedule of releases particularly of our beloved xxxHOLiC the 170th Chapter! I so thought it would already be over for all of us and we’re gonna see HoliC probably by mid-December but it didn’t turn out that way, so… Hurray!
Automatically, I searched over the Chinese forums and snooped some good news for everyone! Why Chinese? Somehow, they most of the time have the first look at the releases and they even scanlate faster than the others getting the Japanese raws . That’s just an observation.
Anyways, not only did the thread confirmed the release of CLAMP’s 170th Chapter on the 22nd but a snippet of what to to expect in the upcoming release had been there, through a drama! It has something to do with Watanuki’s parents, whether they’re alive or not. But somehow, CLAMP must have heard its readers who’re gonna be bereaved should they kill the CCS beloved characters, Ma and Pa Syaoran and Sakura, so there might actually be an increased percentage that they’re gonna be alive and we might even see them now grown up! :3
I’m not so sure about the others cause I could hardly make out the English translation of the forum but that was partly the gist of it. I may have understood wrong, so my apologies but I’d rather have you take a look at it yourselves and correct me! :) Wohoo!
I’ve been trying to figure out the translations of what Shushu had written and here, this is the best I could do, making the translations humanly-readable as possible. XD I may not get the whole thought so please bear with me. This is for the benefit of those who can’t understand mostly Chinese like myself.
The diviner Obaasan wanted to reveal something to Yuuko. She previously performed a divination on Watanuki and told him that his parents already has achieved an enlightened rest. In Kohane’s apprenticeship with the old diviner, she felt that Watanuki should have sought for an answer if his parents also live in another world.
But it is a divine intervention that Fei Wang with this set up (referring to the shop} has not found about the truth. (Probably Watanuki’s existence) Obasaan invites her to another rematch at her house and hung up the phone.
Yuuko had also asked the old diviner: “In that time, will everything come to an end?”
Yuuko put down the phone, pulls a silk scroll and found Mr. Haruka unexpectedly sitting at the corridor. This was the first meeting of the two. But when the living meets the dead in this manner, that in itself is ominous (unlucky)
Haruka: “You have to protect those children, each is illuminating their own choice to move forward.”
“My grandson is one of them?”
“The time has come right? Have you realized the butterfly dream you wished for?”
A butterfly from Yuuko’s fingertips took flight dancing in tune with Haruka’s blue smoke.
Even if it is only a dream but as long as there is faith, desire and longing for this person’s existence, the dream will become a reality.
The butterfly has been having this dream and when that dream becomes a reality, what kind of reality will it present to the people at present…
