**I’m assuming here that this is the 5 chapters of volume 19 that were never published in tankoubon format before.
To me it’s a bad sign that they have absolutely no idea of when they’ll be publishing X #19, so they want to release what they have. I just hope I’m wrong.
On the other hand, I’m utterly happy that we’re gonna get new X colored art *____* I hope the style will be of X itself.
XXXHOLiC and Tsubasa Anime News:
Upcoming episodes of XXXHOLiC:
19 – Irrational
Original episode (I think). About a box Watanuki finds at Yuuko’s shop and a snowball fight, I think with Zashiki Warashi and Ame Warashi ^^”
20 – Compensate
The arc of the woman afraid of the photograph.
This episode will be written by Ageha Ohkawa.
21 – Temptation
Another original episode (I think). I can’t relate the summary to any of the manga arcs. Nor I can come up with a decent summary. (because of the odd translation).
Episode 22 is called “Choice”, though there’s still no summary available.
There’s still 3 episodes left, which might cover an arc or two (I know the spirit/ghost woman Watanuki was fond of will be aired still this season because there’s an image of her in this month’s anime magazines) but let’s hope there’ll be a second season to make justice with the rest of the series.
I’m VERY happy that Ohkawa shall write the one with the photograph, it’s one of my favorites arcs !
Upcoming episodes of Tsubasa Chronicle – Season 2:
16 – The Other Side of Nostalgia
In Rekoruto, Syaoran enters inside the memory of Sakura, there he realizes that the soldiers that attacked the ruins have the same symbol of the person who killed Kurogane’s mother.
17 – The Five Eyes of Tchicai
Syaoran enters inside of Kurogane’s memory again and sees the conversation between Tomoyo and Kurogane.
18 – Kero-chan and Mokona
Still in Rekoruto, Mokona wakes up after a sleeping time and finds out that Syaoran is nowhere around. Panicking, Mokona meets Cerberus, who is one of the guards of the country (possibly from the Library?). Cerberus tells Mokona that the power of Sakura’s feather made Syaoran to shrink, that’s why Mokona can’t find him. Then they find the feather…
Episode titles were taken from ANN
Please notice that things might not happen exactly as it is here.
It doesn’t seem as if the X world is going to show up at this season, but we never know, BeeTrain did Piffle in 3 episodes, they might fit the X world in the remaining ones. Not that I care about it anyway…
Code Geass Manga:
Alongside with the anime, Code Geass will be adapted into manga comics, but it WON’T be drawn by CLAMP, the person responsible for the art is known as Magico (マジコ).
The first chapter will be published in the October edition of Asuka magazine, out on the next August 24th. It’ll be 64-pages long, plus color pages.
Also, the official Code Geass website has been updated with some more info about the anime.
The opening theme will be performed by the band FLOW, who also performed the 4th OP of the Naruto anime.
They also added an image movie that you can check here. There’s no animation on it, it’s more like a slideshow of images with an
annoying background music. although I’m happy CLAMP is in the first place at the credits xDD
