XXXHolic volume 14


Today's post is on XXXHolic volume 14 by CLAMP. It is the fourteenth in the series, so you need to have read the first thirteen to understand the story. It is 178 pages long and is published by DEL REY. The cover has Yuko on it looking very pretty with Watanuki and wrapping around to continue 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- Kimihiro is a mystery even to himself. He has no memory of his past, or even of his beloved parents' names. Neither does he have any idea why he is being followed by malicious spirits. But his boss, the witch Yuko Ichihara, knows, and in this volume nay of Kimihiro's secrets are finally revealed!

Review- Watanuki is finally told what is going on with and to him. In exchange for another's safety he gave up his memories. Once he was told that, Watanuki was at peace with his choice. The way that the plot is going is still sad but I think that things are going be changing soon. What is going to happen I do not know but something big. The plot is getting more and more hidden as things go on. Which is unusual, normally at this point you would have some idea where things are going or at least how they are going to resolve and I just do not have that. Only five more volumes until this one is done.

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.
