Este tomo trata mucho acerca de Watanuki y Domeki, el cómo su relación ha ido cambiando y cómo han ido cambiando los dos, definitivamente en este punto de la historia es grato ver que su amistad ha avanzado mucho y aunque aún tengan momentos de discusión, las cosas vayan muy bien.
Continuando con el tomo anterior, una vez superado todo el problema, finalmente Kohane ya puede estar más tranquila y aunque sus poderes ya no sean los mismos sigue siendo muy perspicaz, tanto que en un almuerzo con Wat

Today's post is on XXXHolic volume 14 by CLAMP. It is the fourteenth in the series, so you need to have read the first thirteen to understand the story. It is 178 pages long and is published by DEL REY. The cover has Yuko on it looking very pretty with Watanuki and wrapping around to continue on the back. The intended reader is someone who likes Japanese mythology, ghost stories, and very pretty pictures. The story is told from Watanuki's perspective. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

Confusing but beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. It's becoming obvious that this series is heading for one mindfrak of a finale very soon, judging by how deeply recent chapters have gone into Watanuki's past and present predicament.

Random thoughts:
-I wish Himawari had been in this volume a lot more!
-Watanuki comments that he doesn't see as many spirits as before. As someone who also reads Natsume Yuujinchou, am I supposed to see this as ominous? Hmm.
-Hngh, kinda sorta guiltily ship W

Perhaps I am struggling with enjoying this manga to the fullest now that a complete understanding of Clamps characters is required but regardless it is still interesting. I know that Clamp is fond of putting cross over’s in their media but I’m struggling to understand if I am missing information or if that is the manner of storytelling. For example some of the characters that have made brief appearances may actually have full stories published by Clamp and I just don't know yet. I will see this ...more

Wow, that was... amazing. Confusing as ever, even more than usually, to be honest, but still amazing. I didn't expect so much exposition in the last part. We finally found out a bit more about Watanuki, who/what he really is. Wow, I didn't expect that. But I probably should have. In the light of Tsubasa, it makes perfect sense. And it explains so much, all the loose ends are coming together. And I'm loving the friendship between Watanuki and Domeki more and more with every volume. I loved the pa ...more

I read this in the bookstore today. I was rather glad for the chance as my library/the inter-library loan hadn't (yet?) gotten this book. It took me a while to remember what had happened in previous volumes.

Parts of it were cryptic and this volume had strong overlays with other Clamp series. Unfortunately I hadn't started Tsubasa and only read the first volume of Sakura, so I didn't get some references. However, I liked the illuminations we receive about Watanuki and Domeki. It was intriguing ho

This seemed to be more of a "lead in" volume to the big climax (which, judging from some of the story here, should be soon?). In Volume 14, Yuuko is particularly cryptic about Watanuki and at the same time reveals more about his identity...but in such a hard-to-follow way that it really didn't tell me all that much. Looking forward to more from this series, but this was definitely one of the weaker volumes (at least, for a first read-through).

La suite des aventures de Watanuki et ses amis (tomes 12 à 14).

Au-delà des mini intrigues au fils des clients de la boutique, se dessine une intrigue plus globale, dont Watanuki est la partie centrale.
Je n'ai pas tout compris, mais l'histoire reste plaisante et le dessin toujours élégant. Il y a toujours de nombreuses allusions à l'univers de Clamp, dont je ne connais pas tout.

Reste agréable.

More is revealed about Watanuki-kun but it is done in a mysterious cryptic way that really leaves readers guessing. There was a brief overlap/vision that Watanuki saw with Syaoran and then of Sakura but the meaning is still a mystery. Overall it is progressing forward and we are getting closer to the truth.

Well most of this volume seemed like a random "Watanuki has a love for cooking and therefore it's very important and impactful" storyline that was... well... random.

Other than that, we now sort of understand the reason Watanuki came to be. I liked how Hakura-san and Yuko-san met up at the end. That was fun!

Well let's see what is about to go down!!

Things feel like they are winding to a close in this volume as major revelations are made regarding Watanuki and his past, with big hints of foreshadowing regarding Yuko. This isn't a volume that is to be missed if you're a fan of xxxHolic.

mixed feeling about how everything turned up !!! I'm not sure if I like how Watanuki has changed , it's a good change but It's kinda annoying me ;P still I will continue this manga hopefully before the end of the year(:

I enjoyed it but there were parts that were confusing. I like this series but it seems like it's getting more confusing the further into the series it gets.

The storyline is getting better. Could tell it's getting close to the climax for a bit, but this feels like there is more direction than the last couple.

again: MAIN CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. THINGS GROW MORE MYSTERIOUS AS THEY GROW CLEARER etc etc. BAD THINGS ARE COMING. This is the real meat of the series.
