Both chapters now available at The Room of Requirement too.
I’ll be removing some links there next week, make sure you’re not missing any chapters in your personal collection =)
For the first time upon reading Tsubasa, a thought came to my mind about the ruins: who built them? I wonder if it’s relevant at all or if we’ll ever find that out.
The inside of the ruins is sooo pretty, never thought it could be this pretty.
But I’m not here to talk about how pretty the ruins are. Okay, they are pretty, but let’s not forget about the plot, the PLOT!!!
Things are starting to come into shape about real Syaoran, but that doesn’t mean they are less confusing. On the contrary, a very confusing shape, I’d say @_@
I guess this pretty much confirms that real!Syaoran is not CCS!Syaoran, at least is what it seems.
So this Real!Syaoran met Real!Sakura in Clow seven days before her seventh birthday. I love the “seveness” of it. We don’t know if Real!Syaoran is a native from Clow or if had just moved to that country, we don’t know that yet. We can’t forget about his parents, Seishirou knows Syaoran’s father. Just a remind.
So they were friends, Syaoran and Sakura, for quite some years, until Syaoran became the age he has now. But then something happened and, as a payment for something, Yuuko rewound Syaoran back some years. Fei Wang then captured him and cloned him and you know the rest…
I ask you now, has the time rewinding affected only Syaoran or everyone else? O.o I guess it affected everyone else otherwise Sakura would be even older now. I mean, if his time was rewound when he was about the age he is now, we are allowed to conclude that Sakura too was around the same age (supposing they had the same age). But then, when the clone was sent to Clow, Sakura is again at 7 years old. So is it safe to assume everyone’s time was rewound, at least in Clow country?
One interesting thing is that he knows about the rewinding. That’s why he’s so mature, that Syaoran. If you think about it, he’s much older than he looks, and CLAMP showed that very well.
Then he says the payment was in order to take back the “Sakura of that day”.
Like you all say, “my brain just broke”. The key here is “which” day? Her 7th birthday? Or in the ruins when she was supposedly cloned?
What if what we saw in Chapter 2 at Yuuko’s store isn’t the only version of what really happened? What if it was there when Syaoran made the agreement with Yuuko to rewound his time?
These time issues are complicated and confusing, I need to think @_@
Another plot-thickening chapter. Kohane’s power comes from a Sakura feather, huh? Who would have thought? I never thought about it and it was so obvious, right on her name! CLAMP, you never fail.
I wonder if that’s the relation she and Watanuki have? If so, does that mean Watanuki has a feather inside him too? I’ve seen a lot of theories about that, and in the deluxe cover he’s holding a Sakura feather. But exactly because everyone’s thinking that by now, and knowing CLAMP, it shouldn’t be it. They’ve used that argument with Kohane, they wouldn’t use it again to reveal the secret of the series’ main character.
Anyway, I wonder what will be done with this feather, since the Tsubasa crew apparently don’t need them anymore. And returning it to clone!Sakura would only help Fei Wang with his plans. We’ll see.
Yuuko has such a sad face in the last panel, I wonder what she’s thinking.
Yuuko plays such a good mother in this chapter, and I love her speech. Totally agree with it.
