Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE Vol 15 (Ch 109-111) *SPOILERS*

Thanks to BWYS for the scans.

Chapter 109

Syaoran reflects on how strong Kamui is while Kamui asks if Syaoran is an “E.” Syaoran doesn’t understand so Kamui fires his crossbow which is deflected by Kurogane. Mokona produces Kurogane’s sword, which upon being weilded, impresses their attackers. Kurogane challenges Kamui and a fight ensues. As the fight progresses, Kurogane thinks on how he’s never seen the technique used by Kamui. Kamui launches an attack and Syaoran shouts a warning, but Kurogane seems un-fazed. In the end, both fighters are at each others throat with Kurogane’s sword being at Kamui’s throat. Kurogane uses his special attack and hammers Kamui. However, Kamui doesn’t appear to have felt anything as he gets up as if nothing happened.

Chapter 110

After surviving Kurogane’s attack, Kamui puts his cloak back on and walks away. Kurogane is offended, but another group’s arrival explains things. Apparently they want whatever is under the building Kamui’s group holds. The new group reveal themselves and many old faces from other world’s Syaoran and company have visited are there. Kamui and the leader of the other group (Fuuma) battle and Fuuma notices Kamui is wounded. However, Kamui manages to throw Fuuma just the same.

Fuuma and Kamui square off but one of Fuuma’s members reports that their own base is under attack from another district. Fuuma isn’t happy to end the battle but has no choice and his group leaves. As they leave, Kamui walks past Kurogane and Syaoran which annoys Kurogane. However, they are surprised when Kamui instructs his group to take care of them and the two that are hiding. Fai brings out the sleeping Sakura where they learn that battles are going on for control over underground sources of water.

Chapter 111

Kamui’s group still suspects that Syaoran’s group are robbers looking to steal water. Kamui’s group is surprised by Mokona and they wonder what to do with Syaoran’s group. Kamui’s instructions were to “take care of them” but since he did not kill them, then Syaoran’s group can live. Kamui’s sole thought is to protect the water and after some additional debate, the group decides Syaoran’s group is free to go.

Mokona senses power coming from below them which is where the water is. Since Sakura is still sleeping, Fai decides to introduce themselves to Kamui’s group and request medical assistance for Syaoran’s injuries. Some of the group aren’t interested in helping but are overridden by Kakyou. This gives Syaoran’s group some time to explore but as the enter the structure, they see a lot refugees. It is here that we learn of the acid rain that has fallen for the last 15 years making the surface water undrinkable and unusable. The structure they are in has a natural underground water source which allows them to survive.

Syaoran remarks on how the building they are in has suffered no damage like the other structures. However, no one seems to know why this is. Apparently, the only good water exists under their building, protected by the building. Meanwhile Kamui sits where the water is stored and asks how long they can exist like this.

Thoughts: Acid rain. I didn’t comment on this last time, but that’s a term I’d not heard in many, many years. Before everyone was going to die from global warming, in the 80’s we were going to die from acid rain. It works for the story told here though. It appears that CLAMP is using this story arc to do another version of “X/1999” since so many of those characters are here. I’ve never read “X/1999” but I really need to.

    I can venture a guess as to why the water’s good there.

    And in xxxHolicxxx, wasn’t this the world that was said to cause a lot of trouble of some sort?

  2. AstroNerdBoy says:

    I’d have to go back an re-read the xxxHOLiC stuff so I can’t remember for sure. ^_^;;;

    And as to the water…*lol* Yeah, that does seem obvious.

  3. Hughroe says:

    Looked through the older posts, guess I misinterpreted, or misremembered, or just assumed when first I read it. Chapter 124, posted on Feb 21st, was what I was going on

  4. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Ah. Well, there will be a link to this world in xxxHOLiC from what I understand. ^_^

  5. Anonymous says:

    If you like Tsubasa you might want to know that Mokona, Rayearth (Syaoran’s kudan), Selece (Kurugane’s kudan), and Wingdom (Fai’s kudan) apear in another manga that came before. See my blog to find out what it is.

  7. AstroNerdBoy says:

    OK, I’ll check it out. I have scored several CLAMP titles but just haven’t taken the time to read them yet (got a full plate and lately, I’ve been spinning my wheels a lot for some reason).
