xxxHolic Volume 15: 09/24/14

cover art

Volume 15 of xxxHolic by CLAMP ends the story arc with Yuko. Her disappearance is as shocking and depressing as Rory's at the end of "Cold Blood" (Doctor Who)

Much of what happens to Yuko is revealed through another extended dream sequence. Her true role in Watanuki's life is revealed as is the way in which his fate is tied up in the decisions made by Syaoran, Sakura and the others in Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle.

The point though where the true horror of what has happened comes to light is through Watanuki's continued cooking lessons with the bride to be who won't eat her own cooking. Watanuki unearths the truth behind her quirk and in the process learns something about himself.

Five stars
