XXXHolic volume 12


Today's post is on XXXHolic volume 12 by CLAMP. It is the twelfth in the series, so you need to have read the first eleven to understand the story. It is 178 pages long and is published by DEL REY. The cover has Yuko on it looking very pretty and wrapping around to Watanuki 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.

From the back of the book- Lately Kimihiro Watanuki's dreams have been pleasant escapes that have given him the chance to talk to his new friend Haruki Domeki. But now he's falling asleep a lot- and starting to think that his entire life with the witch Yuko might be taking place in some kind of dreamworld. Then one night his dream is visited by a pretty princess named Sakura...

Review- The story is starting to get really sad. Watanuki is realizing that lots of things in his life do not add up. He cannot remember things like his parents names or what grade he is in. He is scared but he is letting that change him. He is determined to stay kind. This one also has some interesting one shots like the hole that just appears, takes some of Watanuki's cooking, then returns with flowers as a thank you. I do not know what Yuko is doing but she is so sad about something. The plot is really moving now and I think that it is going to make me cry. Not much left for this story.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this book with my own money.
