Crossposted at Bookstooge.booklikes.blogspot.wordpress.leafmarks.com by express permission of this reviewer Title: xxxHolic #13 & 14 Series: xxxHolic Author & Artist: CLAMP Rating: 4 of 5 Stars Genre: Manga Synopsis: Watanuki helps out Kohane-chan and gets her to a safeplace away from her mother. In volume 14 the story takes on the over-arching idea of who and what Watanuki is, the price he has paid in the past without realizing it and how he, Li and Sakura are all tied together. My Thoughts: I almost cried at the Kohane-chan story. Seeing a young girl attacked by her own mother because the mother hates her ex-husband is just sad. Thankfully, with her wish to be happy and her giving up her powers, which turn out to be based on one of Sakura's feathers, Kohane can start to have a normal childhood. Surrounded by friends, she can learn what love really is. Volume 14 was a little more esoteric and non-plot centric. Lots of little conversations between various people that advance what is happening to Watanuki and Sakura and Co over at Tsubasa. And we are getting little hints that not everything will be ok with Yuko. She has not been so rambunctious and we keep seeing bits of melancholia in her expressions. " ( )

Watanuki is more here in this volume than the last but he is still dealing with whatever price he paid to Yuko. Kohane-chan's story has a happy ending. She is going to learn to be happy herself and through her mother is going to be too. Watanuki is still fighting with Domeki but he is relying on him to help. It is making Domeki very nervous because he knows that he does not know everything that is going on with Watanuki. As always the art is just top notch. Only a few more volumes then done with manga series.

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

Volume 13 of xxxHolic by CLAMP finishes up the Kohane-chan arc with startling revelations. Although Watanuki is still struggling with staying awake or even knowing for sure what is real and what is not, he knows he has to help Kohane-chan, the young psychic.

Kohane-chan has one last chance to prove herself to the public and the other so-called psychics. Her mother's abuse has become dangerous and Kohane-chan to save her life has to lie about what she can or cannot see at the next live television event.

Watanuki, though, knows that she won't lie. He has to offer her a way to escape. There's just one huge problem... and what that problem is, floored me. I think it floored me even more than the resolution and crossover with Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles ( )

Clues are starting to appear between the xxxHolic and Tsubasa series as Kimihiro starts to see what might be hallucinations of Shoran and Sakura in trouble. On another note, we are revealed truth of Kohane's past, the origins of her powers (and on the same vein, the discovery of a new feather) and the resolution of her arc, while leading to what might be the beginning of the end of both series. As usual, the volume is beautifully drawn by CLAMP while the series continues with revelations and new questions. Highly recommended. ( )

In this volume Watanuki displays his growing maturity when he once again puts himself on the line to protect the young supernaturalist, Kohane. Other notable plot points include Watanuki's changing attitude towards Domeki (or did he really just hit his head?) and the loss of his trademark glasses.

This is probably one of the best xxxHolic volumes that has come out so far. There is a lot of transition as Watanuki comes to terms with who and what he really is as well as his changing relationships and attitude. This is apparent even from the one panel where Watanuki wakes up with Mokona and doesn’t get his freak on LOL! There is also some Tsubasa crossover and it becomes clearer how intertwined these two series are which may prove frustrating to some, but I enjoy because I follow both. This is a very well drawn story both in plot and in artwork and I’m looking forward to future volumes. ( )
