xxxHolic Volume 07: 01/11/12

xxxHolic Volume 7 by CLAMP is the start of the second season of the anime. It's also the point where Dômeki and Watanuki's differences begin to blur.

It begins with a broken web and a spider with a grudge. Watanuki gets stuck in one of those gigantic garden webs at Dômeki's home. Dômeki does what anyone would do, helps untangle the web by pulling it down. That though does not sit well with the spider and soon Dômeki is paying the price.

Now one thing that shows up over and over again are in Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle and now in xxxHolic are characters who are missing their right eye. It begins here with the grudge spider and is the point where the two adventures really begin to collide.

Volume 7 also has one of my favorite scenes, the revelation of the bookworm inside a borrowed book. Bookworms are usually paper eating larva, but this one is magical and it eats words, vacuuming them right off the page.

The best quote from this section is: "Oh this? It's a 'bookworm' They live in books, and they love to eat important or valuable words."

Five stars.
