TRC 186 + XXXHOLiC 154 !

Clean scans up at The Room of Requirement! They were absolutely great, Alison, my congratulations!

I don’t have much to say today because there are no translations available to this point, and on top of that, I’m heading to classes after this, but I do have a few things to say about Tsubasa.


– Congratulations to the readers who spotted that some citizens had disappeared! You’re awesome! I definitely noticed Miyuki-chan’s absent and the chin-bearded guy, but I didn’t think it could be important. Everything CLAMP do has a meaning, even their supposed mistakes.

– What the…?! The people are melting away? I felt a great pity for that scene… specially the mother melting away and her son apparently not realizing it, sad.

– They mentioned Sakura! They are back in time? It’s Sakura’s 7th birthday? And this chapter was published a day after April 1st? OMG CLAMP are true geniuses.

– Syaoran remembered of something, and it must be something very important. He knows something we don’t. The clone and Sakura met when they were both 7, I’m thinking we might see some flashback scenes around that time. Cool.

  1. Yo, Chibi-Yuuto!!

    The keen eye for those who notices the less amount of people. What surprised the most about this chapter was mentioning Sakura-hime and that it will be her 7th birthday. I was like: “What!? Sakura-hime!? OMG!”. XDDD If it’s true that Syaoran does had something to do with her on that time, then that would be something amazing. It really reminded me about the 7-year theory that I nearly made two years ago (although that theory focused on the two Syaoran). And the people melting away, it was a little sad even though it’s on a time loop. All right, I can’t really wait to see what happens next. Finally, we moving faster now! ^o^

    Ja ne, Chibi-Yuuto!
    Nyanko-san ^__^

      I definitely think so. I think we might find out real!Syaoran true origins with this.

    I bet she had apple pie for dessert. XD

    Melting people? That sounds very unpleasant. Maybe FWR has trapped in a memory so they won’t be able to act against him in “real” time, but now that they’re certain of the incongruencies, the spell isn’t working any more…

      Apple is definitely Tsubasa’s fruit xD Like Death Note, only yellow xD

      Yeah, Syaoran mentioned that they altered the flow of things, maybe that’s why… but I wonder why they didn’t melt in the first or second times.

  3. Ah, thank you for the scans. ^^

    I know this is random, but I noticed that way back in October, the two of password locations for the CLAMP in Wonderland 2 game were missing. I found them, via google. ^^

    The locations of the missing passwords are here:

    A little surprised all the little banners are still there, though.

    • Hahahaha yeah, some people figured them out later, not by founding the banners, but following the code’s logic ^^

      Thank you still, for your efforts. It’s amusing indeed that some sites still have them up xDDD

  4. I recently friended your journal, this is my first time commenting.
    You get this like a bazillion times, I’m sure, but thanks so much for providing us CLAMP lovers with information and news! 😀

    I had guessed that this time loop was taking place in the past, but I had thought it was before Syaoran and Fujitaka had come to Clow. But this is much more interesting. There’s something really important with the scene when Sakura tells Syaoran to share their birthday. FWR mentioned that Yuuko had interfered with his plan (back in the acid tokyo chapters, i forget which one it was) and that scene is like a flashback on the page. There’s something important, and I think it has something to do with Watanuki, but I have no clue as to what!

    This is getting exciting. *waits for 187*

      I do appreciate your gratidute very muchly, you’re very welcome ^__^

      >I had guessed that this time loop was taking place in the past

      Somehow, me too. Somehow I don’t think the PRESENT-day Clow country looks that happy, I don’t know why…

      >but I had thought it was before Syaoran and Fujitaka had come to Clow

      But apparently it is! Sakura and Syaoran met when they were 7, if I’m not mistaken. This was technically before their arrival.

      Ohh, good guess, it could be o.o

      • Ah! So anyone can friend you? And here I was thinking you were exclusive… But seriously, I was so freaked out by this chapter (I’m still in mourning for Sakura). I don’t know what’s happening anymore. Until you say it, Chibiyuuto-kun, I don’t know for sure. I’m so crap at telling what’s going to happen next. CLAMP are the experts at foreshadowing, and the experts at plot-twists too.

    I was so proud of myself, ’cause I, too, noticed the disappearing people XD~

  6. Bye bye Miyuki-chan. Instead of the plot thickening, it’s melting, and Mokona looks sad. What I enjoyed was Shaoran looking despairing and Fai and Kurogane getting all combat-ready. Here’s hoping 187 is good.

      • They are crafty, that Clamp.

        On another note, I just watched the first episode of xxx~Kei (late I know) and I liked the Wonderland bit, it was cute and random. And I was struck by how often the anime just paints whatnot–hair, clothes–completely, utterly black without line, like the manga. It looks nice.

    Yes, we are voluntary followers of GENIUSES. xD Haha, I honestly didn’t realise this till you mentioned it! That is just pure… CLAMP. Be in awe at the power of April 1st aka CLAMP Day. xD

    Thank you!

  8. Ohhh Thank you so much!! So it’s true that peoples are missing… I actually wondered where is Miyuki?? I thought maybe CLAMP has some other events that makes the crowd somehow thinner…

    And I’ve just got this freaking idea that might not be true nor logical since CLAMP has stated something bout it already (really?? not sure…)
    Maybe, I said maybe, Sakura was cloned and exchanged with the real one at the age of seven, then the clone pairing would make sense… Both of them met each other at that time, without any original’s interference… Then it wouldn’t make clone Syaoran look like a ‘play’ boy… If this is true, then real Sakura is truely for Real Syaoran… And the prophecy made by Yukito makes sense too~~ They are meant for each other instead of R!Sakura is meant for C!Syaoran…

    But the are loop holes.. And kinda big too…
    > BIGGEST FACT THAT DOUBTS this theory: It is already said that Sakura was clone in the first chapter…
    > By ignoring the loop hole above, we have these:
    1. What is Clow Reed doing?? Letting his own daughter to be kidnap?? Unless he really didn’t see that coming…
    2. Touya! wouldn’t he notices that Sakura is not HIS Sakura??

    • About your theory, well, it could very well happen. But like you said, it’s been sort of confirmed that Sakura was cloned in Chapter 1. However, who knows, maybe some twists could happen… something definitely happen in her 7th birthday. It’s 7, the magical number, and the age she and clone first met.

  10. Alas, CLAMP’s subtle hints are lost on me! I did notice that some things people said weren’t repeated but I didn’t notice the number of people decreasing at all ;.; I spend far too much time lingering over the details of the main characters.
