xxxHOLiC Manga Chapter 175

xxxHOLiC Manga Chapter 175

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis: Watanuki continues to drop off onigiri at the cooking student lady’s home, but she tells him that no matter how often he comes by, it won’t change. Doumeki asks Watanuki what he will do if the woman never eats his food. Watanuki says that since he can’t do what Yuuko-san does, this is all he can do and so he’ll do it forever if he has to.

With Yuuko-san, Mokona, Maru, and Moro having been gone for two weeks, Watanuki is house sitting and for some reason, Doumeki comes to the store with Watanuki. Doumeki wants to be fed and Watanuki goes off on that idea, but in the end makes food as Doumeki requests. With Watanuki in the kitchen, Doumeki pulls out the egg that Yuuko-san gave him and wonders if it will soon be time to use it.

At school, Himawari-chan talks to Watanuki about the cooking student lady. She then hands Watanuki a bag of cookies that she made and tells Watanuki that she’s sure his feelings will reach the woman.

Thoughts/Review: I’d completely forgotten about the egg that Doumeki had been given when Yuuko-san gave its twin to Watanuki (which then became the bird that Himawari-chan has with her). So I guess that’s something fun to look forward to. So what prompted Doumeki to come over to Yuuko-san’s place anyway?

For me, the highlight of the chapter was when Himawari-chan gave the cookies to Watanuki. I think back to all the times that Watanuki made food for her. Whenever she gave him a food gift, he always assumed that is was some lovingly prepared dish and she always “slew” him by telling him she bought the food at some store or other. This is the first time she has cooked and so I like that she gave him the cookies. I’d like to think that it is a sign of them becoming closer, at least as friends. I still want to see Zashiki-Warashi and Watanuki hook up but I could live with him being with Himawari-chan.

I haven’t looked at the corresponding Tsubasa chapter to see what the latest happenings are, so I don’t know if there’s some additional information on Yuuko-san’s status. I’m going to guess that we’ll be without Yuuko-san for a while in xxxHOLiC.

Does anyone really care if the cooking woman eats Watanuki’s onigiri? Why doesn’t she have a name? Weird.

Oh well. Now to wait for the next chapter.
