TRC 208 + XXXHOLiC 171 !

I can’t believe the continuation for this chapter is only 20 days from now. Frustrating xD

I also comment on XXXHOLiC 171 which I forgot to do it last week xD

Oh yeah, they are also available at The Room of Requirement, like always, and they were scanned by ladydarkmoon, like always ^_~


Tsubasa:

Ouch, Syaoran’s sword flies away. He’s doomed.

YEAH CLAMP! THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!! *FREAKISH LAUGHER*

On page 09 I swear I thought the clone had chopped Syaoran’s head off, tell me if it doesn’t look like it !!

Before stabbing Syaoran, the clone said he would do what he “must” do. I got the impression that he didn’t want to do it but still did because he was “programmed” to do it? And then he whispers in Syaoran’s ears, AHJHAHA WHAT DID HE WHISPER? LOL

I can only suppose that he is planning something against Fei Wang? Last time he tried to kill Syaoran he ended up killing his Sakura’s soul, and he didn’t like it at all. We must not forget that when he first appeared in the ruins a few chapters ago, the clone looked quite different, quite sad I might add.

But what did he whisper? Words of comfort? “Oops. Sorry ’bout that! But I’ve got a plan” xD

And was this stab lethal enough to kill Syaoran? Then is my theory that Syaoran must die in order to go to the tube true?

The clone drags Syaoran to Fei Wang’s direction and now I wanna see moar!!!

XXXHOLiC:

I don’t have much to say about XXXHOLiC (like usual as of recently), but Yuuko is trying to make Watanuki realize of who he is and his importance through this client, but isn’t it curious how such a perfect client appeared in such a suitable time? She’s so weird that I wonder if she was made up by Yuuko LOL

I liked in this chapter when Mokona said that it wasn’t Yuuko’s client, but Watanuki! Totally character development.

Lastly, it’s amazing how much CLAMP can theorize over cooking, and it’s all true! I cook and I can relate to everything that’s been said in this chapter.

      LOL! Excellent! XD I think Fye’s bubble was shown was earlier than I had expected xD

      And since Tsubasa won’t last for very long, we’ll probably find out in the next volume or so X3

  1. I wasn’t gonna read this chapter until Scanlations were up because I can’t read much japanese…but in all honestly I really didn’t need to. I think this is one of the least verbal of all chapters.
    And i understood what little I did try to make out XD Except for butt-chin…he talks too much

    Um…watch Clony have said something like “Don’t disappear” so that Watanuki will hear it. But yea, something bad will happen to Watanuki…since his parallel is bleeding and what not..but the cooking lady’s lesson to him (or rather his self taught lesson from her) should be the counterpoint. He should decide to not off himself with like the window because of what he has just realized.

    And it did look like Shaoran cut off the other Shaoran’s head…. I as like o.o where’d he go? I see his coat…

    And right before he pulls Shaoran up to whisper in his ear Cloney looks a bit sad. Watch Cloney be the one to save us all.

    P.S. I think we’re gonna be lacking Fai and Kuro again for a while…since we’re probably following Cloney’s plan….

    • Yeah, it was a very graphic chapter (even some speeched were cut off by CLAMP!!! LOL!)

      >but the cooking lady’s lesson to him (or rather his self taught lesson from her) should be the counterpoint.

      I agree. If we were talking about the Watanuki of 5 volumes ago, then something bad would definitely happen to him, but now he has changed so I don’t think it’ll affect him so much, specially after so many “Don’t disappear”s

      >Watch Cloney be the one to save us all.

      Totally! And then kill himself off.

        After everything..yea he could very well be the one with the sad ending. poo…

  2. -But what did he whisper? Words of comfort? “Oops. Sorry ’bout that! But I gotta a plan” xD
    I think that it’s more dramatic like “you will never be with her, just like me!” (evil laugh) or it can be a “I will send you where she is, so please die” XDDDDD I don’t know, CLAMP’s whispers are really intriguing o.o

  3. Hmm. I would never have characterized Cloney as regretful. And I’d put money on your “death is the road to the tube” theory, since that was no love-tap Jr. got.

    I don’t think Yuuko created the client, I think it’s more inevitability. πŸ™‚

    Happy Christmas!

      That’s what Yuuko would say! And yeah, I don’t think Yuuko created her either, it was just a joke of mine xDDDD If she had created her, Yuuko would be “interferring” and we know she doesn’t interfer ^^

  4. TRC 208

    Through this whole chapter, I was like like O_O “No, no, no, no!!!” And yeah, when Kurogane had a worried expression, that’s when we know it’s got seriously bad! Watanuki’s so gonna be affected by this…let’s see, risking life in Tokyo=attempted suicide out a window. So, getting hurt badly and then stabbed=O_O” Useage of kitchen knife to maim oneself? ^^”

    I thought Syaoran was dead before Clonie whispered to him. When Clonie picked him up and started dragging him I was like “leave him alone dammit, where are you gona take him?!” (Yes, I talked to the chapter scans 0.0) But let’s admit: CLAMP are evil, psychotic, sadistic woman, but hell, they’re brilliant plot-writers! XD (Christmas pressie from CLAMP=Favourite character near death. Hooray!)

      True!

      >Useage of kitchen knife to maim oneself? ^^”

      HAHAHA But don’t you think that now that he has changed things will be different? Specially now that he’s dealing alone with this client who is “disgusted” of herself.

      I’m curious to know whether he is dead or alive, I think he’s still alive, we’ll see.

  5. YEAH CLAMP! THIS IS WHAT A TALKING ABOUT!!! *FREAKISH LAUGHTER*

    LOL xD

    Then is my theory that Syaoran must die in order to go to the tube true?

    I don’t know about that since Sakura sacrificed herself to prevent him from dying–twice–but I’m very curious to see what happens. It’s funny because Syaoran used to be the most open, easy to read character in the story and now it’s always like wtf is he doing now? xD

  11. Wah, is it bad that the first thing that came to mind when Cloney stabbed Syaoran jr. was “Oh no! What will happen to Watanuki as a result of this?” πŸ˜› Then I was all like “hm, poor Syaoran. That can’t feel good.”

    Seriously though, I went through a lot of volumes and became quite attached to the original Clone!Syaoran, back when he was all adorable. Then Clamp made him evil and brought in a different Syaoran, but I never could get as attached to him( I sympathize with him, but that’s not the same). So in a way I’m rooting for the Clone, because it isn’t his fault he got screwed over royally.

  17. “But what did he whisper? Words of comfort? “Oops. Sorry ’bout that! But I’ve got a plan” xD”

    ROFL. Oh gah, that just made my night.

    It honestly DID look like he got his head lopped off, but I saw it hanging there, still attached to his body, a few panels later. I was on the phone with a friend of mine who reads this comic as well and I think we nearly deafened one another after seeing that.

    Honestly, I’m a bit surprised that cloney took him down so fast! O_O I mean dang, I know CLAMP is going to drag this big fight out but I was expecting those two’s fight to last at least another four chapters, not for cloney to knock him down right away. Granted, whenever the real one gets back up I’m sure that will be a rather long battle, but still… I can’t say I’m disappointed though XD. My favoritism stills leans towards Kurogane and Fai so… the more of them we see, the better >_>. Especially since now they’re more serious about the battle, although their previous commentary, especially Fai’s facial expressions, when they finally met up with ole butt-chin were priceless.

    “I can only suppose that he is planning something against Fei Wang?” I personally think he is. You’re right, he wasn’t exactly happy about his Sakura dying. I don’t think he’ll end up being quite the obedient doll-like clone as he was before. Only time will tell I suppose.

    Now we have an agonizing wait until the 7th, oh joy. XD
