What's this of a comeback you guys talking about?

I thought it was a definite end when I read it. Although, it wouldn't be bad if it made it back with a continuation of the story. Still can't believe that almost 3 generations of Doumeki all look the same xD

I wonder where it fully fits in the overall xxxHolic story line. There were still unanswered questions from xxxHolic Kei (the egg), CLAMP need to answer what that darn thing does.

The egg at the end of the story was designed to erase all memories of Yuuko from Watanuki mind when Domeki or his descendants cracked it open. 

 

Yuuko foresaw that Watanuki wouldn't continue living his life outside of the shop if she wasn't around. Hence, she charged Domeki and his descendants with the responsibility to determine when it was necessary to erase all memories of her from Watanuki mind. 

 

This was implied at the end of Chapter 213.

I don't know what to think either. 

 

This chapter is setting us up for something, but what that something is I don't have a clue. 

 

But on the positive side of things, Himawari made an appearance again. 

 

Prediction: I think that 1 of the girls isn't as close of a friend as the other girl may think.

I wonder why Yuuko used Hitsuyou (Necessity) rather than Hitsuzen. (as per the translation notes)

 

Can't wait to see where this is going. CLAMP usually have a reason for it.

I'm not 100% sure that Ren, but it really does sound like it is possible. Only time will tell.

Are these 'new chapters' like really recent and not something old? The story and art style feels a lot like early xxxholic when the creators were still coming in to their groove so to speak.



As for the chapters:

This is going to take a few chapters before I or anyone else can understand the full picture. 

 

Well at the very least we know that the girls work at the same company, one out of two dolls is dirtied on both girls phone straps, and at the end of the chapter the first girl comes back to the shop injured. 

 

This is making me wonder if one of the girls is wishing for bad luck to happen to the other. 

 

As far as customers go, I have a feeling that Domeki is referring to Watanuki being involved with these customers problem.

That is all.

It's possible that one of them is dead since we haven't seen either girl outside of the shop. 

 

I would like to see a Live Adaptation of this manga series since I greatly enjoyed reading it. 

 

An added plus to for making this series a Live Adaptation is the fact that this series doesn't need a lot of computer graphics like its counterpart Tsubasa would have needed.

xxxHolic is having a live drama adaptation...darn I must have been living under this big rock called Earth...

 

I think that the 'girlfriends' are actually friends from school that have become rivals at a company. Or they were truly 'girlfriends'.

Same, though I don't like the image or feel of the actors.  I dunno, just doesn't give off the same vibe as the manga (which is 50% of what I adore of it).

I am really enjoying xxxHolic Rei too,  just read the three chapters today so I could read several together and loved it  - I miss the series. 

I am wondering why the one girl has a bandage on her right hand but her left leg?   And the same little animal being dirty on both their cell phone straps is obviously meaning something.

Chapters 4-5

The explanation was somewhat classic and it seems there is less things implied in Yuuko's words than in the other chapters.
Even if she keeps talking about the customers coming back.

Not much of a story to admire just yet, but I'm adoring the art, as usual.

~Catching up on chapters~

 

So how old do you think Yuuko is? 

 

I imagine there is the age at which she died; her biological age. Then there is her age after Clow resurrected her by stopping time thus physically stopping her from aging but due to the passage of time the years add up but she doesn't change physically at all. So she has an biological age and an immortal age. Given her appearance, she *looks* about 24 (or 30) but given the time stopping shennigans could she be about 300 years old? How does one go about explaining the age of a Space/Time Witch who can travel through time and to other worlds? Would reading Tsubasa explain this? 

 

 

~Finally caught up with the chapters~  

 

Interesting. It's like voodoo dolls. I wonder how this can be stopped? 

 

Does anyone think that Watanuki succeeded in bringing Yuuko back and this manga is a result of that? Like, he is now back in the 'good ol' days' because of his powers?
