First of all, thank you for the warm feedback I received from my new (simple) layout xD Some people asked me where this picture was taken from, it was taken from Nekoi’s Private Board back in the old CLAMP-PLA.NET website. You can get it here, along with others of the same kind.

I didn’t like this episode that much. Other than the awesome crossover cameos, Ioryogi’s little adventure was pretty dull.
I have yet to see the subbed version to understand more about the conversation between Ioryogi, Genko and Zuishou, they might have said something interesting there.
Now, the Watanuki crossover was unexpected at the least! He is the shop owner and everything! I bet this is Ohkawa’s doing, it can’t be something else. And of course he orders baumkuchen from that shop, of course, it’s CLAMP’s official baumkuchen shop just like the Green Drugstore is now CLAMP’s official drugstore xD It would be nice to see that crossover happening in either XXXHOLiC or Kobato. mangas now.
I did think that Madhouse’s Watanuki looked a little weird here, but not ugly, just different.
And the Mokona amusement park? LOL! I wonder why Black Mokona was chosen. During the stuffed animal part, it would be cool if they had included other CLAMP mascots =/
I thought it was cute at the end when Doumoto was the only one who guessed right about Kobato’s little bunnies X3
Next episode, winter comes!
By the way, Ohkawa wrote the script for episode 20, which is called “…Person who travels”. Can’t wait! It’ll be about Valentine’s.
Quick thing about the XXXHOLiC OAD now, the official website has added comments form the cast in its special page. There is one comment from the Himawari seiyuu so maybe she will appear? Or at least her voice will be there (over the phone like in the manga?) xD Apart from Yuuko, Kohane and Mokona’s seiyuus, there are two other female seiyuus, hummm.
