So we learn that Syaoran has to “fight and win” in order to return the souls of the dead to the Living Nirai Kanai. I don’t really know in practical terms what that means, I think it means they will be reincarnated (as opposed to resurrected) — we’ve seen that happening in CLAMP stories before (lots of times).
Syaoran has to fight and win against the person who he would least like to fight, in other words, he has to fight against the clone! Holy sh*t, CLAMP, poor Syaoran I am pitying this poor dude right now, just let him be happy already!
Syaoran then makes a simple math (which I did myself, too) that it seems easy: he can win over against the clone and he will be happily reborn after that. WRONG! The tree (or whatever is talking to Syaoran) explain that since the clone isn’t from Nirai Kanai, he won’t be reincarnated. Basically this rule it only applies to the people from Nirai Kanai, which makes sense if you ask me (poor Syaoran…)
I didn’t understand the part where the tree explains thatthe one who possesses “seji” must not “have a human heart.” Doesn’t Syaoran have human emotions?
Did anyone else notice the constant “DOKUN” noise that keeps repeating on this chapter? Is it the tree that is making this sound, I wonder…?
Now Syaoran must CHOOSE — my god I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes! Let’s hope he can make a choice by the next chapter.
