TRC 210 + XXXHOLiC 172 !

Raw scans at ladydarkmoon and at The Room of Requirement.


I’m gonna be quick because I don’t have much time, and because the chapter was as awesome as it was short.

Beautiful, beautiful, simply beautiful!

So sad that he wanted to hear the words Sakura never told him before she died ;__; now he will be able to hear them…

But the way he said “Fye-san”, “Kurogane-san” and “Mokona”, I could swear he got back his memories, which is even sadder if you think that is not evil clone that is dying, but the Syaoran we first met ;___; CLAMP did it on purpose JUST to make it sadder. But I loved it XD

Even though he died, I wouldn’t go thinking that he is the one which will get a “bad ending”. He sacrificed himself to save Syaoran and Sakura, he shall be with his lover and he died thanking Syaoran. There was nothing else for him to life for, I think he died happy. But we’ll see.

Fye’s magic leaves the clone’s eye before he shatters!!! I don’t know why he shattered, by the way. Will it return to Fye now? I’m not so sure of that. Somehow I believe that magic will be responsible for bringing Syaoran inside the tube, that’s my two cents for now.

I wish I could elaborate more on how epic CLAMP delivered this chapter, but I have two other posts to make and I’m running out of time xD Total awesome chapter, I’m so satisfied with all the drama =DDD

As for XXXHOLiC, I haven’t seen any translations yet, not to mention it looks very distant from all the craziness of Tsubasa, I’ve no idea what’s going on xD I’m sure it’ tie up eventually.

    • So far it is the death of the year XD Until someone else’s death surpass his XD

      I read some people in Japan really considering if they would continue reading Tsubasa after this… I wonder if they were serious…

      • You know? If you’ve been reading TrC almost from the beginning you started with a Shaoran, and that shaoran was (and has result to continue be) an hero: the hero of TrC.
        It’s hard to change him for another, even if the new one were the real one! I can understand why they say so…
        My hope for him is now ended…it’s the death of the year ’cause it’s unfair, sad and cruel, and the CLAMP made me cry this time…
        T_T
        I’m too some kind of annoyed!!

          • I’m with the raw now, pag 7, i just realized (more than yesterday) the drama. Sakura said to him: ‘next time we meet, i’ll tell you’, when she were able to tell him, she died. And now it’s too late, the clon has gone without that words!!!
            *i can’t clean it well if i’m crying!!*

              • Till now, from what i know/read/think, both sakura and both shaoran lived similar situations. But in the clon case, they have die without telling each other what they feel.
                I hope the real one will be able to!

                The clon case is the case we saw when the story started. The real case has not been show exactly equal, but, the real sakura and shaoran for sure love each other, and (i cant remember if sakura even tried to tell him) they almost tell each other…
                (This came from the latest flash back about real shaoran, i hope my memory doesnt lied me^^)

  2. I could swear he got back his memories

    Did it ever say he lost his memories? I thought he’d just lost his “heart”. Isn’t it that he still remember everyone, but was just “doing what he had to”?

    • Well, no, it was never said, but he called them the way he used to. I don’t know, it’s very implicit, hence I said “I could swear”… I’m not sure of it but that’s the impression I got. It makes everything even sadder so that’s why I think it’s possible XD

  4. onemanga has the xxxholic translations up which is how i read it.

    Watanuki is turning into a great Yuuko imitator. There’s a scene in there where he quotes her and he looked more like Yuuko than I thought possible.

    I feel bad for Cloney, but that’s what CLAMP wanted from us…it’s interesting that like Clone Sakura we don’t have a body…he broke up into pieces and floated away. How bad is FeiWong Injured? Because he is royally pissed and Fai’s magic is sorta floating around at the moment… >.>

    • Oh thanks! I will read it later!

      >Watanuki is turning into a great Yuuko imitator. There’s a scene in there where he quotes her and he looked more like Yuuko than I thought possible.

      Really? XDDD That’s what we expected from the early chapters, isn’t it? Glad that we were right ^^

      >it’s interesting that like Clone Sakura we don’t have a body…he broke up into pieces and floated away

      Indeed, that was weird for a “body”. With Sakura I could understand since it was her soul that was dying, but a body to shatter away is weird, but maybe that’s how it works with FWR’s clones.

      >How bad is FeiWong Injured?

      Good question xD I think he is injured but very ready for another battle round.

    I reacted the same way Syaoran did when clone mentioned the name Syaoran.

    It was so touching!!

    Fai and Kurogane was totally missing.

    Wonders what will they do with Hien…

  6. It was so sad the way the clone died as the Syaoran we knew at the beginning of the story… and the fact that he added in Syaoran at the end. Oh, I was almost afraid he was going to just die saying “I’m sorry” after Sakura once told him to say “Thank you” when people worry about you, so it was touching that he did.

    I’m of the opinion that Fai’s magic will return to him, but I guess the spell that the clone cast will need some explaining. And does Syaoran Jr. get two swords now? He’s got his father’s sword and Hien now… O_o

  10. NOOOO. ;_;

    Glorious, but I still don’t want him to die. He’s our Syaoran after all.

    I’m still optimistic though. I have never forgotten Sakura’s words.

    “Even if we are just creations, we are the same. If those two keep on living, it won’t end.”

  11. The very moment I saw the splash, I thought “that’s it, those evil women killed him”
    But the actual chapter and last moments of Syaoran was a lot more heartbreaking then I would have ever imagined ;____;
    It’s really been a very long time since I’ve last been so sincerely moved by a TRC chapter…after all, I’ve been following it since 2003 so yeah, it started to be hard to get over emotional after reading a manga for so many years ^^;;
    His wish to hear Sakura’s last words really moved me to tears and seeing his eyes clear up in the end and listing his most beloved people really made it painful to watch T___T

    In the whole, I can’t only guess TRC’s will have a bitter sweet ending at best, too many people died already for it to get a ‘happy ending’ 😦
    Death listing of main characters: C|Sakura, C|Syaoran, Queen Nadeshiko, King Clow, King/archeologist Fujitaka, Kurogane parents, Fye and his whole kingdom, King Ashura and Xing Huo.
    Sincerely, I don’t give damn anymore about Sakura being saved, when I think about all the people that died in the way there, and all the pain it brought to so many persons: everyone dies but Sakura alone is safe? How unfair is that? 😦

      Indeed. Ohkawa said that Syaoran and Sakura will “struggle” to have their happy ending.

      >Death listing of main characters: C|Sakura, C|Syaoran, Queen Nadeshiko, King Clow, King/archeologist Fujitaka, Kurogane parents, Fye and his whole kingdom, King Ashura and Xing Huo.

      When it put them all up like that, nice… xD

      >everyone dies but Sakura alone is safe? How unfair is that? 😦

      Very unfair! I was partially pleased that the clone’s soul died exactly because of that XD

      All in all, I’m very pleased with TRC so far, and I don’t think the deaths will stop with clone’s.

    Okay, time for my chapter comment… ^^”
    With the splash page, yes, CLAMP-sama are indeed teasing us XD (Just wait till you see our 20th anniversary fanbook! THEN you’ll feel bad about the teasing! XD)

    And omg the art! Like on page 7, the art where we see Syaoran sad… T.T (Im a bit confused, did Syaoran get stabbed by his own sword or did he die because of FWR’s attack only?)

    CLAMP, you evil little devils, you just HAD to add the touching scene where he said his friends names for the first time ever since Tokyo *_* And adding Syaoran’s name, too…

    This is worse than the most recent character death in Naruto manga (no spoilers, I won’t say who!) T.T I think I need time to accept this… It’s ironic, I’m such an RSyaoran fangirl and when Syaoran dies, then I remember how I loved him before Tokyo. He’s a HERO!!! *cries*

  13. Srry for posting this comment late, gomenasai!!

    Ahhhhhhh!!! Why didn’t I cry?! I’m so heartless!!!

    CLAMP-san are so MEAN! They didn’t let C. Sakura confess her feelings to C. Syaoran, or vice versa?

    The page where C. Syaoran mentioned Syaoran’s name, and Syaoran’s widened eyes… Ahhhh…. I like that page a lot!! A really _____( dunno what to fill in this blank) moment T_T.

    Btw, could anyone take a little time to look at my blog? It’s http://www.shu-teng-story.blogspot.com
    Do comment/criticize it. I will accept them with an open heart(hati terbuka, in Malay).
