Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE Vol 14 (Ch 106-108) *SPOILERS*

Thanks to BWYS for the scans.

Chapter 106

Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE Vol 14The second guardian is waiting for the group and breathes fire on them. The flames spread to the books, but the books are not consumed by the flames and are unharmed. Syaoran is relieved the books are fine while Kurogane carries Sakura-chan to safety while he remembers the possessed Syaoran. He then asks Mokona to bring out his sword, but Mokona is unable to do so. Fai whistles and wonders if they could win even with weapons. Kurogane instructs Syaoran to attack the leg of the guardian, which Syaoran does with flying feet attack.

The group flees the scene while a group of mages (dressed like witches) come in on winged wands. The group continues to run while the mages attack. They make it to the door but find themselves surrounded by an ocean. Kurogane states they’ll just jump in, but Fai stops him. He tosses his hat into the water and it dissolves. Fai whistles again as the injured guardian arrives to attack them from above. Fai continues his whistling which creates a kind of barrier around them. Kurogane and Syaoran are stunned by this and Fai instructs Mokona to evacuate them to the next world. Mokona protests because of the restrictions on magic, but Fai assures the critter that it will work. Sure enough, Mokona is able to send them to the next world as Syaoran and Kurogane look in amazement at Fai.

Chapter 107

The group escapes to the next world where Kurogane places the sleeping Sakura-chan on the ground. Mokona asks about Fai’s use of magic since he stated he wasn’t going to do so. Fai attempts to justify it by saying he’s using magic by sound (the whistle) rather than how he’d normally perform magic. Kurogane points out that magic is magic which Fai sorta agrees with. Syaoran apologizes for not putting more thought into their escape from the library once they’d stolen the book, but Fai reminds him that he got Sakura’s feather.

Syaoran is troubled that when the first guardian swiped him, he has no memories after that until much later. At that time, he could tell that he’d fought and defeated something even if he didn’t know what. Mokona comes over to make sure Syaoran is OK. Fai wonders what kind of world they are currently on and climbing up some ruble, he finds the ruins of a vast, modern city where skyscrapers have fallen over.

Meanwhile at Fei Wong Reed’s place, the boy in the liquid-filled chamber opens his eyes. Both Yuuko-san and Fei Wong detect this and Fei Wong wonders who will benefit the most from this as he observes the Tsubasa group. That group heads into the ruins of the city with Kurogane carrying Sakura-chan. Kurogane wonders what kind of place this is while Fai states it would be nice to find a place to treat Syaoran’s wounds. Syaoran notices the rubble have been rounded by a weather event. As he mentions this, it starts to rain and the rain is painful when it hits their skin.

Chapter 108

Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE 108The rain falls, which Mokona doesn’t think is made of water. The group runs to the only building in the city that has suffered no damage — a large twin-towered skyscraper. They make it safely to the building, but find dead bodies of people who’d been slain. Fai remarks that he’s glad Sakura-chan is still sleeping to miss the gory scene. Syaoran gets Mokona to sense for the feather. Mokona does so, but senses a great power, which Mokona can’t identify. The power is coming from below them, and as they explore, Syaoran wonders what could have caused so much destruction.

He finds himself under attack as arrows land all around him, while he somersaults to safety. Kurogane and Fai hear Mokona exclaim while Syaoran tries to defend himself and Mokona from the arrows. One hits his leg where he finds a group of people up on the rubble with crossbows. That group comments on Syaoran’s not giving up and his actions during their attack. The group then asks their leader, Kamui, what he’s going to do.

Thoughts

Fai using magic to get them out of the tight spot in the library was most interesting. It had long been implied that he had great powers and the tattoos he handed over to Yuuko-san as payment to travel between universes had nothing to do with giving him power. Now we know that indeed, Fai is most powerful, and scarily so considering the ease with which he erected a barrier in a place were even Mokona couldn’t use it’s magic. The introduction of Kamui brings another character from another CLAMP manga, this time from the series X/1999.

    I was under the impression that Fai’s tattoo acted like a limiter to his power. Sort of like without it, if he tried to use magic to light a torch, he’d set the forest alight.
