We get to see how Watanuki run the shop in this volume. Domeki helps him because of their shared eye if Domeki sees a place then Watanuki can walk there in his dreams. When the blurb says that he must help everyone who enters the shop, it is not something special that was the way the shop worked for Yuko too. The spider is interesting in this one, she is not a villain this time. She is someone who wants something that was promised to her and needs Watanuki to get it for her. She does try to be scary but because of everything that Watanuki has been through, she just does not sacre him anymore. That annoys her but I like the development that Watanuki has gone through. Only two more volume before the end of this series.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. ( )

xxxHolic Volume 17 by CLAMP takes place a few years after the last volume. Time though seems to have stopped within the bounds of the shop, now helmed by Watanuki. The longer he stays, the more like Yûko he becomes, wearing her kimonos, smoking her pipe and drinking her sake.

The big case, though, comes with a big surprise in the return of an old enemy. Watanuki though is well prepared and manages to get down to business with her.

As Watanuki must stay in the shop to keep the shop from reverting back to an empty field, he can only travel through dreams. Like the last issues with Yûko where Watanuki couldn't tell dream from reality, now he uses dreams to shape reality. When that isn't possible, Domeki acts as his gopher.

Although the series is winding up, there's no big battle. It's a nice break from the typical series wrap up. Sure, Domeki is an archer but none of the previous volumes have been about fighting. They have always been the quiet half of the Tsubasa / xxxHolic story. I don't know how it's going to end but I see it doing it quietly, with perhaps Domeki and Himuari making personal sacrifices. ( )

"Watanuki no longer leaves the wish-granting shop he inherited from the witch Yko. What's more, he must help everyone who walks through its doors--even the monster that ate his eye! How can the still-inexperienced Watanuki handle what can only be called one dangerous customer?"… (more)
