The final showdown begins!
This chapter was short, so my comments are going to be rather short too.
Could anyone remind me of what Sakura’s wish was? *FAIL* XD To save Syaoran from dying? To “live” through real!Syaoran and real!Sakura’s relationship? I forgot xD
So the final showdown finally begins, at least between Syaoran and the clone (let’s hope it’s the final). Yes, yes, Syaoran, you’re doing well, you are pretty beat up already but you must still lose your gloves and goggles for the tube scene to happen, but you’re getting there.
Clone is even stronger now because he has Fye’s left eye which contains Fye’s magic which power increases the more one uses it. The clone is clearly much stronger than Syaoran in this point. Much stronger.
So unless something extraordinary happens in this fight (ie outside help, clone sacrifices himself), Syaoran might die.
In a way, with Syaoran dying, the tube scene makes sense since we know only souls can enter it (at least in that tube we saw back in Yuuko’s shop). But would Syaoran’s “soul” look all beat up like that? Maybe the “rules” are different on the other side of the tube and bodies are allowed? XD
This chapter made me realize that this volume might not have the usual 8 or 9 chapters, but 10, for the first time in Tsubasa’s history.
