TRC 172 !

Cleaned scans à la ladydarkmoon available at The Room of Requirement.


So Syaoran learned everything Seishirou taught the clone (even if he was inside a tube xD), we expected that, of course. Demo, I wonder if Seishirou already knew about Syaoran’s true nature when he taught all those skills. I want to know more about this Seishirou!

FUUMA: Things start to get a little scary. (quoted from Jamie translations)

Read: FUN (I mean, look at his face when he says it! XD)

But Syaoran broke Seishirou’s glasses, Seishirou won’t ever forgive him for that, ever xD But why does all CLAMP characters must always cut one of their cheeks when they are fighting?

Ooh, Syaoran gets stricken so nastily…

Then we move to the continuation of Fye and Tomoyo’s chat. I really liked the shots showing Ashura-ou struggling against his wish to change the future. He didn’t want to murder all those people, but it was the only way… They always have their reasons, even Fei Wang, you’ll see xD

I can’t believe Seishirou was about to leave again… and Syaoran made his stay again. I knew Syaoran wouldn’t give up, but he just can’t beat Seishirou, even with that suppa-duppa Raitei Shourai he performed at the end of the chapter.

Syaoran won’t give up because he’s Syaoran. He can’t die either because, who are we trying to fool here? xD
Seishirou can’t be defeated by Syaoran, let’s face it. So the conclusion is, something else will interrupt this battle, and I think it is 2 somethings that drink blood.

This week’s commentary was short, because once again there wasn’t much development on the story (not that I’m complaining about it! XD)

Everybody else is doing these memes, so why can’t I do them too? xD

  1. But why does all CLAMP characters must always cut one of their cheeks when they are fighting?

    Because it’s much sexier than a broken nose or a black eye, both of which are far more likely in a fight. And CLAMP men need to be sexy 24/7 or readership will drastically plummet!

    I also must confess that I love SeishirouxSyaoran as a TRC crack pairing. It almost eclipses my love for the crack that is Ryuu-ouxSyaoran, but not quite.

      Hahahahaha Okay, I’ll take that as a fine justification xDDDDD

      >I also must confess that I love SeishirouxSyaoran as a TRC crack pairing

      Really? xD

      >Ryuu-ouxSyaoran

      That one is more likely xD

      • Really? xD

        I never said it would plausible, it just strikes me as sexy crack. ^___~

        That one is more likely xD

        Though Syaoran makes friends with different versions of Ryuu-ou as opposed to interacting with the same Seishirou. Still their frienship is cute and they would actually have feeings for each other, unlike SeixSyao which would be “Give me the feather!”/”No!” angry sex.

        But this is all moot as we all know that Syaoran and Sakura are going to live happily & adorably ever after! ^___^ Unless CLAMP decides that tragedy is en vogue and kills the main character(s). ;____;

  2. I really liked the shots showing Ashura-ou struggling against his wish to change the future.

    Mm, me too, I was actually really surprised how much that resonated with me. I didn’t much like what ended up happening between Ashura-ou and Fay (I had lots of expectations, I guess XD), but that really helped smooth it over for me. Gooo, Tomoyo!

    My goodness did I like all the playing with the glasses. That’s a huge part of my love for Seishirou right there! That, and when he called Syaoran identical was just so perfect to me. :3

    So the conclusion is, something else will interrupt this battle, and I think it is 2 somethings that drink blood.
    I am hoping SO HARD! The new arc’s the best place for it, really – we’ve got plenty of time to explain the Seishirou/Subaru…/Kamui backstory, and resolve it nicely without anyone getting stabbed. Hopefully.

    Congratulations on your scholarship~ ♥

    • Is my sentence correct? I don’t know, reading it again, suddenly felt like Ashura-ou didn’t want his wish to happen (struggling against his wish) XD

      I quite liked what happened between Ashura-ou and Fye, it’s was tragic and surprising xD

      >My goodness did I like all the playing with the glasses. That’s a huge part of my love for Seishirou right there!

      Oh yeah, his glasses are part of his characterization (he just looks so cool with them). Syaoran is cursed for the rest of his life from breaking them xD

      >we’ve got plenty of time to explain the Seishirou/Subaru…/Kamui backstory

      I know! And Seishirou wanted to leave for the 2nd time… it would just feel weird if in the 3rd one he actually does leave. I don’t know. I think the fact that he stayed now means that he’ll stay for longer. The last time he ran he showed up again only 14 volumes later!! XD The chances of meeting him again are dim that’s why I think he’ll stay and the twins will eventually appear.

      >and resolve it nicely without anyone getting stabbed. Hopefully.

      Aww, but I wanted stabs ;__;

      >Congratulations on your scholarship~ ♥

      Thanks a lot! Was quite worried @_@

      • It made sense to me right away the first time, but then when you just asked, I was like “Oh, wait, he DIDN’T want Ashura-ou to help? No. Wait.” XD In any case, I get what you mean, and I agree.

        I definitely wanted tragedy, and I liked the whole savior stuff a lot. I guess their interaction in the present was just so limited to “OOPS WE ARE ALL DYING”, and I wanted moooore~

        Syaoran is cursed for the rest of his life from breaking them xD

        It’s much worse than breaking a mirror, when Seishirou’s involved. XD

        You’re right – he’s GOT to stick around after trying to leave twice. Leaving again would be silly. Good, now I feel reassured! :3

        Aww, but I wanted stabs ;__;

        XD Without anyone getting mortally stabbed? Ohh, okay, fine, stabbing is okay, as long as we don’t see an exact replay of Rainbow Bridge!

        No need to worry, you’re a smart cookie. 😛 When does the school year run for you there?

          Hahaha I think I get it now xD Yeah, it was exactly like that~ xD

          Much much worse! XD

          >You’re right – he’s GOT to stick around after trying to leave twice.

          Yeah, it would look so weird xD “Ah, okay, now I finally go~ *niko*”

          >Without anyone getting mortally stabbed?

          I don’t mind a few limbs getting chopped off, or a death or two X3 Do you believe Ohkawa will give Seishirou and Subaru a happy ending? Do you believe her “excuse” that in Tsubasa, characters can have different fates? XD

          >When does the school year run for you there?

          We are in the last month. Then December-January vacations, and then back again in February for the final and most scary year ^^

            Do you believe her “excuse” that in Tsubasa, characters can have different fates? XD

            *SOB!* XD Yes and no, I guess? I mean, I don’t think I could buy an ending where Subaru and Seishirou walk off into the sunset holding hands. So much of the attraction to the pairing comes from the fact that it’s so fractured, and at the same time that you want something nice, you DON’T. So. But I don’t want the exact same story, either, and I don’t think it’ll go that way because of a lot of things. The age difference. The fact that Seishirou is actively pursuing Subaru, when it was the other way around at the end of their relationship in X. Ahhh, I don’t know. XD But I have faith in Ohkawa to pull it off, no matter what she does!

            Oh, wow! This is the middle of the year for us, but we’ve got the same break schedule. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll do amazing! ♥

  6. yeah, everyone has their reasons, but some reasons are better than others.

    the creepiest thing about this whole interlude is how much Fuuma SMILES. he never smiles in X and it freaks me out. but I guess he’s happy, so that’s good, theoretically.

    yeah, you’re right that syaoran can’t win and won’t die. i don’t know about the twins showing up, but something will happen.

  7. hum, i wonder why everybody has so little faith in my poor syaoran. i also think seishiro is a little bit too overrated. I´m not telling syao is the almighty and allpowerfull knight or magician, but i´m pretty sure that he can do what he is determined to do, so i still believe he can defeat Sei, despite what many people and (probably) Clamp thinks.
    Since the beginin of TRC, syao is always improving because his solid wish and determination, and in the last meeting with sei, Sei himself was wishing for syao to be stronger and surpass him if he could. So, why everybody is so exceptic about syao winning against sei?.. well, next chapter we find out if i´m only a crybaby fangirl(i hope not)
    Thanks as always.^-^

  9. I know a lot of people are interested in the Ashura-o being mentioned, but I was more interested in the picture that accompanied it that showed Yuuko and Fei Wong Reed. There seemed to be something holding Yuuko in place which seems to agree with what she (in Holic) and Fei Wong (in TRC) have said, that she can only hlep our travlers so much. Although, is Yuuko a dreamseer? I get the impression that she can tell the future someway, but that hasn’t actually been touched on now that I think about it (or Fei Wong’s dream and somebody had better tell us soon dangit!).
