Best color page of Nirai Kanai hen or best color page of Nirai Kanai hen? I love the composition and the colors here.
Fye looks really nice with his hair loose. I already hear all of your heartbeats. Why doesn’t Fye look nice?
So despite the big mess Syaoran caused using the “cursed” bunny rabbit keychain, he was still able to restore half of the souls from the other Nirai Kanai thanks to his strong wish.
It’s nice to see that the fourth item that Watanuki collected was used, it kind of gives a full cycle feeling to it, although the cage was returned because it’s a “special” cage. And it really is, it looks like the “shiritori” cage, the cage with the CLOVER birds that can be only be seen in the moonlight, the cage that came from the suspicious shop with suspicious bat-winged decoration that looks like Fei Wang’s. Of course, it might be just a similar cage since it was given by the old lady from XXXHOLiC Rei #3 in Watanuki’s dream… I don’t know, I’m confused. But that reminds me that we still haven’t learned what is up with that suspicious looking shop.
I wonder if the cage will play more roles in the future…
Judging by Watanuki and Syaoran’s conversation, it looks like Syaoran will keep looking for the clone? Isn’t he learning anything from Watanuki? Those kids, seriously! xD Will this be the thing CLAMP will cling on to to keep drawing XXXHOLiC and Tsubasa? Use that egg already Doumeki and shed some light in those two’s heads…
Fuuma arriving in the end is the randomest thing ever and yet not? CLAMP have been hinting about this for at least two title pages. It’s so funny when he jokes that he almost didn’t have time to hang out in a resort (what a big fat LIAR!). Fuuma’s not-so-random arrival is CLAMP saying “hang in there, there’s more to come”. Well played, CLAMP, well played.
So this was Nirai Kanai hen. It looked more like a new arc of “RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE” than a stand-alone work. I don’t know what CLAMP are doing here with creating these new arcs and then restarting the volumes all back again from volume 1. Are we ending up having a bunch of “WoRLD CHRoNiCLE” volume 1s? What’s the point? This can be excused if there is going to be big gaps between each arc, but if they are planning on starting a new arc in 2016 still, it’s just very pointless doing all this “final chapter!!” fuss and then “new arc!!!” and then “final chapter!!” again.
That is why I am hoping that it’s gonna take them another few years to work on a new “WoRLD CHRoNiCLE” arc, so that they can work again on some of their unfinished projects (which they have plenty to pick from) and then work on Tsubasa again, from time to time.
But right now, XXXHOLiC Rei is still going, we’ll see how that goes. Is volume 4 going to be the final one? I certainly hope that it won’t take as many breaks now that Nirai Kanai hen is over.
