CLAMP, I’m tsundere~ for you.
ツンツン (tsuntsun): TRC Chapitre 207–212
“YOU KILLED OFF OUR FIRST SYAORAN, YOU EVIL WITCHES!”
The recent chapters of Tsubasa are filled with so many plot revelations, I feel like they’re all streaming through my head all-too-quickly. This series being full of time paradoxes causing the logic of the multi-universe to fall apart? Check. The Acid Rain Tokyo world and Clow Country actually being the same dimension, only in different time points? Check. Kyle’s existence merely being sword fodder? Check. Clone!Syaoran developed a heart all along? Check.
What sucks is that CLAMP kills off our lovable, original protagonist RIGHT WHEN HE COMES BACK TO US. Sure, he seemed like like he didn’t feel any physical pain like he did when he was a mindless killing-machine. Sure, he had that same blank, emotionless expression on his face up until his death. But, as Fay put it, “It would’ve been much better if you had came back home with us”. He never got to hear Sakura say those oh-so special words, “I love you”. It’s all too tragic. I literally broke into tears when he was apologizing to all of his former traveling companions, even apologizing to “Syaoran” (CLAMP even teases us with a colored picture of what it would have been like if they actully got the chance to become friends!).
The first half of the story, we’ve been following him. Seeing his devotion to Sakura; his genuine love for her and his determination to get back her memories. But, we’ll never get to see him end that journey. That is, unless his soul still somehow managed to survive…
At that moment, I wanted to invade the little studio that the CLAMP ladies dwell in and assassinate them as if I was a ninja killing off all the royal women, like the angry fanboy I am.
デレデレ (deredere): KOBATO GETS AN ANIME
“THAT RIGHT, BITCHES!”
BUT THEN CLAMP WENT LOLLOLMOODCHANGE ON ME. I jizzed in my pants. Kobato, one of the cutest manga I’ve ever read, is being adapted into an anime that will be part of the autumn lineup this year.
And to think that I thought Kobato’s brief appearance in MADHOUSE’s CLAMP in Wonderland 2 was just a tease. OH, HAPPY DAY!
