XXXHolic volume 13


Today's post is on XXXHolic volume 13 by CLAMP. It is the thirteenth in the series, so you need to have read the first twelve 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- The medium Kohane-chan has been punched and bruised on national TV, but still her controlling mother is forcing her to go on the air. Now Kimihiro steps between the rebellious young psychic and her raging mother, only to take the beating himself. See the dramatic conclusion of Kohane-chan's story!

Review- 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. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
