It was a good ending and i like the mature Watanuki a lot more. Still pissed at clamp at what they did to Yuko.

Hmm.. I still don't understand why Watanuki can't leave the shop for a bit. I remember Yuko leaving multiple times. I was hoping that they'd also develop more on the return of "Yuko" or that other Fox Master. Eh..?

I thought this OVA didn't do as much justice as it could. I had many questions going through it. Plus, the source I watched it from had terrible subtitles. So I gained even more confusion. 0.o

I love Watanuki and Doumeki's relationship now. It was funny to see how much it has progressed since the beginning of xxxHolic.

Still a nice episode not as epic as the previous episode that made a really big impact for me but this is more or less a recap with a nice ending, it still a quite open ending and still lots could happen so they could easily make some more ova's or a movie!

Either way lovely Anime Serie a Global score of the Anime would be a 7.4/10 for this ova 8/10 because the epic first episode!

Would it be impossible for CLAMP to create another season?

I kinda figured that Doumeki and Kohane would end up together. That wasn't a surprise for me. What did surprise me was the nature of the relationship between Kohane and Doumeki! If I understood the conversation between Watanuki and Doumeki, the "unrequited nature" of the relationship means Kohane loves Watanuki, but Kohane and Doumeki are not really in love with each other. Was this marriage arranged just to produce offspring to look after Watanuki because he is bound to the shop?

I did enjoy watching the flashbacks. It made me realize just how sad I am that xxxHOLiC has come to an end. Wow! It's really over. I don't want to believe it. I'm still going to hope for another season and/or more OVAs.

And what about that damn egg??????


I think this is the truth...

Damn you CLAMP!!! Where did that come from?! Poor Watanuki he's all alone now.


He's not alone. This was a calculated move. Now the descendants of Doumeki will always be with him.

Wow, I absolutely loved seeing this new version of Watanuki as the shop's owner in Rou. I just wish that we could get a continuation where Yuuko comes back. Really any type of continuation with this new, badass Watanuki is awesome by me. I want to see his interactions with the other nonhumans now that he has changed and I want to see him taking care of some wishes.

I really like Kohane and thought she would be a great match for Watanuki, but his two most feasible love interests are: Zashiki- Warashi as they could just live happily ever after forever, and Yuuko if she were to return for the same reasons.

well his time did "freeze" so he's gonna lose friends as long as they're human... but since doumeki and kohane are marrying so their children can watch over watanuki, he wont be alone .

It's actually impossible for Watanuki to be paired with anyone unless the other person would be ageless like him. And besides that, he can't even leave the shop.


Why can't he leave the shop though? Yuuko could leave and she was ageless too.
Is it because he's wanting for her return?

Oh was right: (from the wiki)

''It's later revealed in the Epilogue chapter that Watanuki's price was to stay in the shop and not leave until he finds a way to meet Yuko again.

In the xxxHOLiC continuity, at least a hundred years have gone by. Watanuki has finally been granted the ability to leave the store since he has found the remnants of a dream Yuuko left for the purpose of freeing him, however, he has decided to stay there for the sake of everyone who would come looking for help.''

He can't leave the shop because of 2 reasons:

1. He chose to wait for Yuuko, but more importantly
2. that was the price he chose to pay to be freed from Fei Wong Reed's final curse that trapped him and Syaoran.

Try reading chapter 230 to 232 of the manga. :-)

Agreed, take your yaoi parings and leave cuz it will never happen. clamp would never ruin xxxholic by doing that.


Apparently you don't know Clamp at all.

It's obvious that Doumeki is in love with Watanuki. Just like Kohane is in love with Watanuki more than Doumeki. The man she is marrying.


I don't know Clamp at all, but I do know Doumeki is not sexually attracted to Watanuki in the slightest. It's one thing for fangirls to want WatanukixDoumeki to happen, but using your logic you could argue that the pipe fox wants to get in Watanuki's pants too.... well he does, but you know what I mean.

Wow, really don't know what to think of this episode/ending. I was plain happy with the Kei ending, felt Shunmuki was somewhat needless, but now with this one I don't know. Animation took a quantum leap forward. Liked this one better than the first episode of Rou, simply because the first one felt a bit off. The first one was unusually grim, I mean xxxHolic always was, but always with a twist. The first episode of Rou was just grim without a twist. More importantly though, I felt more like a supernatural detective show, which xxxHolic never truly was. It would have been more fitting as an episode of UN-GO.

Back to the actual content, I did think Rou as a whole was amazing at conveying the point that and how Watanuki stood still in time as the world kept moving around him. It might be sad and all, but let's not forget that if there is one thing xxxHolic has emphasised from beginning to end, it is the responsability as well as the right, both taken to the extreme, to make your own choices, even if they lead to sadness. Watanuki chose to stand still. Similarly I feel that it was Watanuki himself that sunk the Himawari X Watanuki ship, because in the end the person that mattered most to him was Yuuko, and he chose her sake. Everything in the first episode of Rou, Doumeki's remarks, Kohane's remarks and the conversation over the phone between Doumeki and Himawari indicate some discomfort, if not resentment, by those actors over Watanuki's choice. They understand it, so they have moved on, but you can feel they would have wanted him to do so too.

So all in all, I have less trouble accepting Rou's ending than some others might have. That said, there are still two plot holes that I'd like to see filled:
    1. Who did Himawari marry, or rather, who was she able to marry (without killing him)?

    2. Yuuko WAS able to leave the shop, so Watanuki's take-over is not completed in full. Is Watanuki just double doomed due to his ties to the Tsubasa universe (of which I watched naught), or is he truly still waiting for Yuuko or some action (from the other side) on her part?


Finally to drop a bombshell:



    1.How did Watanuki get the pipe fox to that kawaii intermediate size?

    2.How was Hiiragi Mana able to enter the shop, or rather with what did she pay?

    3.Did anyone else notice that Kisaragi Saya sounds just like Yuuko-san?

    4.Did anyone else notice that Kisaragi Saya has the EXACT SAME haircut as Himawari-chan?

    5.Is this a new ship, and if not, WTF is it?

Might I add that the same goes for Kohane. The fact that she still cares more for Watanuki than for Doumeki, does not mean she care for them in the same way. Watanuki is her father really, and the one that set her free. That freedom allows her to marry Doumeki.

There exist different kinds of love. It's kind of like two lines running parallel to eachother. One of the lines can be longer, but they still won't ever intersect. I personally never understood why so few people (on this forum included) can understand this.

I.. I don't know what to think of this.. I love this series, but this is getting me really depressed! These 2 last episodes have been great but there were stuffs I don't know how I feel about it.. stuffs like Doumeki getting married to Kohane and Himawari married to some random dude we don't know about. (I actually read the wikia about it and Doumeki x Kohane is kinda acceptable, but still..)

I feel terrible for Watanuki.. this is depressing.. I wonder what happened to Yuuko and all that. Sigh, I guess there's still Zashiki Warashi to accompany Watanuki (though it's not happening yet based on what was stated on wikia).. Sigh.

I wasn't expecting to be depressed when I started the series.. The story was really good, somewhat dull at times but even though it's kinda episodic-ish most of the time, the story still managed to convey the passing of time pretty well, and we get to see the development over time as a result, which kept the series from feeling stagnant.

I hope there's a sequel or prequel to this show, would be nice to have the gap filled between the 10 years gap and what's going to happen from here on out.

This was the best xxxHolic I have watched and it made me wanted season 3 even more. They could have made season 3, by showing Watanuki granting wishes to various people.

Great ending to XXXholic, bittersweet but the most realistic ending given the story. I do believe Yuuko and Watanuki will meet again one day .
