Lovely title page. Since the boys appeared on the magazine cover, nothing less fair than to have Sakura on the title page (although the boys are there too in chibi style :3). The illustration is mirrored to Chapter 10’s title page illustration. The boys are even wearing the same clothes!

This is the beginning of volume 3. Last chapter we were left with Syaoran going inside the tree and… to nobody’s surprise, it’s the clone (‘s soul?) who’s in there!

What a beautiful hug Syaoran gave him!

Outside, Fye and Kurogane are waiting while watching, and it seems like Sakura (GATE 7) and Tachibana are watching them from afar. It seems like they had been watching over them all along. So cool, they each have an eye close, exactly the “eye” that’s watching over the gang 😉

It seems like Fye and Kurogane find out Sakura is been helping Hana out in whatever they’re doing… They seem worried.

The clone says important things at the end of the chapter……..!

28 pages this month. It’s more than the average but that’s only because this is the first chapter of volume 3. Be ready for some serious decrease on pages for the next chapter. 28 pages for volume 3 so far.

PS: Recently I found out that the since CLAMP have moved to Kyoto they have been using digital screentone, mainly for time reasons. I just wanted to point out that that is so clear on this chapter….

  1. Thanks for sharing!

    Somehow, it feels like I waited forever for that hug between the two: leaving aside all the problems with cloning, reincarnation, souls, drama blablabla, they are still father and son, so always seeing them so distant and serious, and calling each other ‘Syaoran’ was sad…
    But this beautiful embrace made up for it a little! 😀

    It indeed seems like there is some revelation in this chapter, and all the color illustrations are great ^^ I suspect the clear file will be one of the 2, and either way, it’s fine!

    Other than that….do you think TWC will end with volume 3 …? That is, if we go with the idea that this is only a short extra arc, in which Clamp is just tying some loose ends from the first series + playing around with their on-going series (Holic and Gate7), and not really a sequel of TRC per se.

    • Indeed the hug was very moving =)

      As for the clearfile, this is the picture: https://www.facebook.com/chibiyuutoLJ/photos/a.381582517004.159559.89548982004/10153180979632005/?type=1&theater

      I don’t think so… I think it’ll go for more than 3 volumes. The Nikai Kanai subtitle bugs me, though. It’s as if we’re either gonna stay a long time in this country or they will change the subtitle each time (like XXXHOLiC Rou).

    I see it's not just me then: I found the events in the first 2 volumes were a bit too slow (Clamp comfortably took their time to get to this chapter 13 haha~) if it has already been decided it would be a 3 vol thing. That, or it's just me feeling that way because it's a monthly release and we don't get much pages each time, so I wrongly feel like the pace is slow.
    But all in all, I also expect to see at least one more year of TWC! 😀

    • There are several things going on right now, on my previous post, I explained to another reader a few things that I found out recently from the Ohkawa x Kouga Yun talk: https://chibiyuuto.com/2015/09/06/xxxholic-rei-chapter-44/#comment-287949

      Now, comes my personal speculation:

      They moved to Kyoto in order to escape from the crazyness that is Tokyo. However, they now have a shorter deadline (because it’s far from Tokyo), there aren’t many screentone stores in Kyoto, which made them decide to use digital screentone even though they are not digital natives. Don’t you think that it’s strange that they stopped working on the other non-Kodansha works after they moved to Kyoto? I don’t think that’s a coincidence. Maybe Kodansha is flexible enough to deal with that, while Kadokawa and Shueisha have different policies when it comes to mangakas.

      I have this theory that they are taking a good rest before resuming works such as GATE 7 and Drug & Drop (and why not X too, but I’m not sure about that) and right now they are only working on TWC and XXXHOLiC because they are very much “used” to it. Let’s face it, Tsubasa’s art isn’t as hard to draw as GATE 7. They are “playing it safe” with Tsubasa. They are taking their time, no rush. It’s like they think “instead of not working on anything at all, let’s work on something light, at our own pace”.

      They are drawing roughly 40 pages a month now, when they used to draw much more than that. Sure, they are getting older, I don’t expect them to draw 100 pages a month again, but it sure feels like they are resting.

      That’s my view on what’s going on right now…

      • I just read your answer on your other post, and there is indeed a lot to consider about Clamp, like what you said: moving to another city, health, age…

        I am very surprised that not living in Tokyo is such a hurdle in our digital era though, that was an unexpected thing, joined with the whole screentone thing (I didn’t notice at all until reading your post, thanks for the info!!), which to be sincere, felt to me like something that could be purchased and sent to them anyway/anywhere they wanted…But the truth is, what might feel like “simple things” to others, could actually be some very serious issues, like now. And while it’s true we are not getting many mangas pages lately, but they have been working a lot on the whole Clamp 25th anniversary + card captor sakura 15th anniversary things this year, they made tons of new illustrations of CCS, are the ones behind the designs of countless merchandise and goods, they must have been consulted about a lot of things like all the CCS expositions/events etc…and right now, I suspect they must be working on the cover of TWC vol02 + the artwork for the bluray case that comes with the special edition + since a new Ichiban Kuji of CCS was scheduled for January 2016, they will also be making yet a new artwork of CCS…

        Nonetheless, I will not completely “excuse them” either, in the sens that the whole situation with ‘hiatus’ and breaks’ are things they have been doing for decades, and which has always frustrated the whole fandom, it’s a little hard to ignore ^^;

        That said, right now I have no complain at all: we are getting Holic and Tsubasa, I am used to drug&drop being on breaks after so many years so to be sincere: I am really not affected at all; and as for Gate 7, even though I own all 4 volumes at home for more than a year now (in a language I understand!), I didn’t read them yet to this day, so I don’t feel like I am missing them either…so I’m all good enjoying Tsubasa each month!! (+CCS everywhere!)

        But them working on Tsubasa indeed make sens following your speculations, and I am not complaining! 😀 We were definitely left hanging with the first series, so I am definitely enjoying seeing more and I’m not in a hurry to see it end anytime soon 🙂

          You have a point there. To be honest, they didn’t credit the main reason for not using analog screentones anymore to the lack of screentones shop in Kyoto. My previous comment might have given you that idea, but that would be wrong. From what I understood, that decision was taken for time reasons, mainly. Then later on, they were talking about how the new gerenations or artists are more digital and some art materials are hard to find nowadays. They mentioned that color tone is almost impossible to find these days and then Ohkawa added that in Kyoto there aren’t many screentone shops.
          Of course, that could affect indirectly, but like you said, they could order it online, I suppose.

          are the ones behind the designs of countless merchandise and goods

          Yes, I suppose all the recent CCS buzz is taking a lot of their time as well.

          • Time issues then….well, Time *IS* pretty much one of most people’s biggest problem hahaha~ (including me!)
            Thanks for clarifying the screentone thing, it’s always interesting to learn little things like these about Clamp ^_^

            Also, we will be getting more color illustration of TWC next month!

            We will be getting a color illustration again (they say “center” so, double pages maybe?). That’s 2 months in a row, how lucky we are! Teey also seem to be saying something else but google translation is not good enough ^^; (“special tumbler” makes no sens to me)
            This is definitely to celebrate the release of vol02 on October 16th and we are enjoying it 🙂 In october we will be having 3 new TWC artworks: the cover of vol02, the bluray case cover and the chapter’s splash page.

            • Yay! Color page again!!

              “Center” color unfortunately doesn’t necessarily means double pages. They used the same name (center) for Chapter 13 as well but we’ve got only 1 page.

              A “tumbler” is a termical bottle/cup. Like those big starbucks ones? So there will be a service to get one of these.

              Either way, you’re right: at least 3 color illustrations in October 🙂

                That's the thought I had too, but I did not dare to speculate about a new merchandise ^^; I guess this will be the sort only the readers in Japan can get though mail services, like usual…

                Whether it's 3 or 4 new illustrations, October will be a good month! ❤
