It’s so pretty but… why is Watanuki again on the cover? mmm mistery mistery I really loved the cover. It’s very difference from the others but in color Thanks chibiyuuto LikeLike Reply This is the 3rd cover where he appears =D LikeLike Reply They’ve totally reversed positions compared with volume 1. Not that that’s SIGNIFICANT or anything. XD Not sakura, I think, those flowers are too large. I’m betting camellias. LikeLike Reply LOL yeah, too bad it’s not the last volume, it would match perfectly xD Let’s see if CLAMP has something more surprising for volume 16. I’m just not 100% sure of being camellias because the symbol behind the 15 number is a sakura flower. Could be not fully bloomed sakuras, I’m not sure if camellias are that pink, are they? *loser xD* LikeLike Reply Yes, you can find Camelia japonica in a whole variety of colours from white to red with pink and yellow and even white petals with a line of pink on the edge. Camelia had been mix a lot, so you’ve got tones of hybrids. ^_~ And I’m not even talking about the other camelia species. But the cover is amazing! Love the colors so much. ^_^ I would have love to have it in a calender format. -_- LikeLike Reply Tulip Magnolia The flowers are Tulip Magnolia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnolia_liliiflora LikeLike Reply Re: Tulip Magnolia Sugoi! I love my readers, thank you! LikeLike Reply Re: Tulip Magnolia No problem! Please keep up the good work! ^_^ LikeLike Reply Watanuki looks sort of…clowish. LikeLike Reply Doesn’t he? I think it’s partly due to the clothes ^^ LikeLike Reply It’s very beautiful, but it’s also kind of…inappropriate for genteel company, if you know what I mean. Coincidentally, how many more volumes do you think there will be? LikeLike Reply I think volume 16 will be the last ^^ LikeLike Reply …unless they decide to throw in a story about a woman who can’t stand to look at her food while she’s eating it. XD Also, thank you for posting this! LikeLike Reply Nice cover! It’s Watanuki and Yuuko together and very close! (Closer than the one for vol. 12 or 13!) Thanks for the info. LikeLike Reply Curious to see what they have in store for volume 16, supposedly the final volume ^^ LikeLike Reply Oh it’s so pretty… I am mesmerized! 😀 LikeLike Reply Loved you icon xD LikeLike Reply If they pull a Tokyo Babylon thing and have the last cover be just Watanuki, I will bawl my eyes out. LikeLike Reply But all the Tokyo Babylon covers have only Subaru O.o LikeLike Reply Oh no, I meant the pull out art you get where they drew Subaru, Hokuto, and Seishirou together until the last volume where it was just Seishirou and Subaru. LikeLike Reply Hokuto T_T I would cry with you! That pull out art was so moving. Ohkawa or Mokona or Nekoi or Satsuki, wohever think of that is a genius. LikeLike Reply Yuuko and Watanuki have been sharing front covers lately. That and this highly affirms my suspicions that Watanuki might be Clow, FWR DID say that Watanuki looked like a young Clow. Or maybe he’s another of Clow’s incarnations. On another note, Clow is an effing player, we have Kaho who is an incarnation of his wife, Nadeshiko who is the wife of his incarnation, and I don’t even know what it really was between him and Yuuko. Also we have Yue mooning over him. LikeLike Reply Ohohoho, I think exactly the same as you about Clow, why did him have such a strong attraction to them? just because all of this is HITSUZEN XD On a side note, I think Clow’s reincarnation and descendants are more lovely than himself (shot by Clow fans), Fujitaka, Eriol, Touya, Syaoran X 3~~~ I love each of them more than Clow himself XD LikeLike Reply I myself prefer Watanuki. er… Then again, we haven’t really seen much of Clow besides being dead and all knowing and smiling the “I know something you don’t know” smile. LikeLike Reply Oh…yes, Kimihiro-kun also, I have lost count on how many Clow’s descendants out there =.= I definitely LOVE Watanuki, he is so lovely ^ ^ LikeLike Reply HAHAHA I haven’t thought about that ! Clow is such a heart breaker xD LikeLike Reply Always curious about this, but where in CCS does it say that Kaho is the incarnation of Clow’s wife? LikeLike Reply it should be said that Kaho is the partner of Clow’s reincarnation, Eriol.^.^ LikeLike Reply Ohhh this is pretty… I find this cover unique from the other holic covers. LikeLike Reply Really? I think it’s quite similar =) LikeLike Reply Love this cover >333< Love the drawing style of xxxholic as always, it is so special for Clamp yet they make it so beautiful! It's just so rich of that kind of mysterious and traditional feeling.. Today there are so many clamp news that makes me feel so excited, and there is Kobato Drop 15 and Igarashi-sensei's book coming…feels so blissed ^ 3 ^ LikeLike Reply I love how the flowers are also part of their clothes pattern and you can’t really tell what is really flower and what is really just a pattern ^^ LikeLike Reply The cover is so beautiful LikeLike Reply Watanuki felt lonely in the back cover it seems ^^ LikeLike Reply This cover is awesome!!! love how Watanuki seems to be the protagonist this time thank you n_n LikeLike Reply Indeed, a little twist of perspective ^^ LikeLike Reply What a gorgeous cover. ;_; Yuuuuuuuuuuuko. LikeLike Reply *sobs* LikeLike Reply after reading what the others wrote here about the cover i went and dug out my copies of the books. It’s interesting to see that Watanuki is on all the covers…granted he’s on the back of most of them. He’s on the 1st one sitting behind Yuuko and looking Much younger than he does now (that’s might be the slight evolution of the artwork though)then after that we see him only on the back of the pages slowly coming more and more into frame. It might not be something to really look at, but i find it interesting that we get more of an image of him as the book covers go by until he’s now sitting in front of Yuko in a way instead of behind her and rather than him sitting bellow her he’s sitting at a higher elevation. It might be symbolism that Watanuki is now of more central importance to the evolution of the story than Yuuko. It is possible that she won’t even appear on the last cover. LikeLike Reply I second everything you said ^__^ I’ve been wondering too if Watanuki will appear alone in the final cover. That would be cool. LikeLike Reply It’ll be sad to not see Yuuko at all though, because unless we’re going to be reminiscing on her in the end…or she comes back as a reincarnation or something i don’t know why we’d see her. LikeLike Reply Maybe just her clothes, just like Hokuto in vol 7 of Tokyo Babylon. T_T LikeLike Reply I love the flowers. LikeLike Reply Me too! \o/ LikeLike Reply Nice cover! Watanuki looks really mature in that picture, me likes ♥ LikeLike Reply He looks like a man =D LikeLike Reply oo it is quite beautiful =D LikeLike Reply Isn’t it? =D LikeLike Reply its soo gorgeous and beautiful! Watanuki looks like clow… but his hair is shorter xD thanks like always chibiyuuto-san! LikeLike Reply it’s so beautiful! it’s gorgeous! it’s so… jade green (one of my fav colors)! XD and finally watanuki-kun is on the cover with Yuuko-san! 😯 when was the last time that watanuki showed up on the front side… Thanks so much! ^^ LikeLike Reply Well vol 14 ^_^ But before that, it was vol 1. LikeLike Reply I must say i loved this cover, Watanuki-kun looks so grown up!!! T_T Feels even like we are reaching the end even more than before!!! And I must agree with the ones that say that he looks so “Clow-like” that it feels as he was made in his resemblence. Like “Clow in his youth”.
