Well. Everything has to end sometimes, or else nothing would ever get started.

Like, I dunno, THE END OF GOHOU DRUG. Or the end of X/1999. Just saying.

I'm kind of sad to see it end but I look forward to seeing the conclusion.

Well tbh I can only say "FINALLY" . After Tsubasa ended , xxxholic became incredibly dull . I always expected something would happen but nooo , it remained the same with an extremely mature Watanuki just helping random customers ... Finally ppl or Clamp itself realised this would go on no longer . It's a pity knowing nothing more rly exciting happens but it was good and I'll remember that <3

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

To be honest, I enjoyed xxxHolic better than Tsubasa.
It was really one of those series that you just couldn't put down.
The initial premise before the Tsubasa craziness was what got me
hooked into the series. Looks like a xxxHolic read-a-thon is coming up for me.

Well, I'm kinda glad this is going to end but at the same time, it is a tad sad.

Can't wait until the next CLAMP work is announced.

GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!

To a manga that should've ended LONG time ago, the day Tsubasa ended, so should have this.

CLAMP are masters of never finishing anything, even Tsubasa had an "open ending"...

either way, Sayonara, I won't miss it.

Wait...what? That leaves Clamp with so few chapters to complete it though.
I really couldn't be bothered to come up with a clever signature at this time. So right now I will go ahead and say nay and move on with my business

I have mixed feelings on this piece of news.

I feel like over the past year, they've been dragging the series on without any clear point.

Yet at the same time, I was hoping it was done in order to build up to some sort of climatic new arc, or revelation, etc. Since it's ending in a month...it seems pretty obvious no such thing is going to happen.

I guess the correct word I'm looking for is disappointment. I feel like nothing worthwhile has happened and the potential was there for CLAMP to do something and they didn't.

Anyways, it's been a fun read. Unless they come up with one hell of a conclusion, it may find itself no longer in my favorites, lol.

Ah finally, it was dragged on and worsening anyway; in my opinion. The only chapter that was interesting recently was the bonus chapter where the TRC cast made a guest appearance ;;

Yay~ someone actually have the same feeling as I do...
I'm not surprise it ends nor sad nor happy. Recent chapters seems like they are out of ideas for xxxholic. But I'll miss Watanuki.

Can't wait for Gate 7. (Maybe some familiar faces will appear there. That's my wish aha)

I agree with this statement completely. It's def draggged a little bit since Tsubasa ended but I always felt like it could continue on in another way but sadly Clamp never did it.. All well, it was still a great manga and the crossover it had with Tsubasa really can't be beat.

I'm glad. Rou plot after several decent chapters isn't developing. I think of this solution as an act of mercy before Holic falls even more.

this is so sad to hear...


xxxholic has been perfect lately. when they finally started to focus on character of Watanuki instead of going in circles with myth folk stories.


another great manga ends :< millions of mediocre ones remain. Let's hope clamp manages to either re-continue X or release something as great as trc/xxxholic was...

Oh. The potential was there indeed, there could just be something, they could just open the doors visibly there and make one hell of a story out of it, but whyyy? I've been waiting for them to actually MOVE the story but they did not do that.

I like Holic better than any other Clamp stories to tell the truth. But it is quite abandoned. If they decided to put this out of misery then...

*sniffles*Aww really sad to see this end.. I really love XXX-holic, though the last volumes (15/16) it became a bit boring. Oh well until the volumes are translated we will be a lot further in the year. I do hope for a good conclusion..

It's a about time. The time skip was so useless and boring. It just dragged on.

CLAMP needs to desperately end X/1999!

people commenting on it "being boring" should understand that its not action manga. its not comedy manga. its not a damn shonen ai too(thankfully). Its nota shounen manga too, its seinen.

Its a very conceptualized manga. Each arc since timeskip has reinforced certain feelings, ideas and theories both about Watanuki, his wish and overall clampverse rules. Its highly philosophical and each arc had a motive as well as developed character of watanuki and the world surrounding him.


There's a serious lack of quality manga out there, since most of things usually degenerate into pew pews and stories, instead of focusing on what matters. Flashy trendy stuff rules the manga market, sadly and its sad that some of fine quality manga like xxxholic is ending. Manga focusing on its actual themes and underlying messages, ideas, manga that can empathically portray certain ideas instead of resorting to flashy fighting, "funny" commedy or love storylines.

I was glad to see Tsubasa end (Sooooooooo boring)( but I really enjoyed XXXHolic, in my opinion it was better than it's counterparent and I was looking forward to seeing more arcs. *sigh* Ah well.
