Wait...theres a live-action series for xxxHolic? Neat! I was wondering when a CLAMP series would be turned into live-action, and xxxHolic works. I'll have to check this out sometime.

And maybe this will give CLAMP the incentive to, I dunno, maybe pick up xxxHolic again and give it a proper ending....an ending that will also help explain Tsubasa's total confusing mess of an ending as well. *gives death glare to CLAMP* Yeah, I still haven't forgiven them for that. The endings for both killed my love for CLAMP. >_>

I felt the same. I was following it all alone since the beginning (when the first volume hit the states), spending so much time happily supporting it, and buying the volumes for many years, same with xxxHolic. I was already a big fan of their other works, but those endings just felt like a slap in the face to their fanbase who supported them, whats worse is that they drug Sakura and Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura (which I love to death) into that whole mess. I remember right after finishing both Tsubasa and xxxHolic, I immediately took down my Tsubasa poster and wallscroll, I couldn't stand looking at them without feeling angry. Its almost like Clamp threw up their arms and was all like "We don't want to work it anymore, lets just end it." and the fact that they kept putting both on hiatus towards the end for "research" (I heard the truth was they just wanted to play video games). Heck, even Kobato was spiraling downward last I read it (I only got as far as about vol 4 then I got distracted, same happened with many other series I was reading at the time).

Yeah, I'm still bitter over that ending, especially xxxHolic's. I intend to give it a reread sometime, maybe make better sense of it, maybe my opinion will change and I can bring myself to enjoy it again, but I refuse to support any of Clamp's newer works. I still plan to give Gate 7 a try, but I don't have any high hopes for it.


In the meantime, to quote a wise internet reviewer, "...Betrayal!!!"

Wondering though did the manga of XXXholice and Tsubasa finish properly or was it just the anime that they abandoned?

They did, they both got "endings". Very haphazard, thrown together "endings" but they did get conclusions....sort of. *points to my rant in other post*

I do love Clamps stories, I support some of the manga they create but it seems like some of their stories are strange as well. A lot of their manga endings seem half-hearted. The stories are rich and you can't help but dive right in and enjoy it but it's like the people making them, don't really know about how to create a proper epilogue :/

I bought Clamp's Clover Manga, and it had such a giant potential to be a longer manga and I did enjoy the ending however tragic it was, but they made it so short and kind of bunched it together that they magic was kind of lost. It was an amazing idea that they shouldn't have made such a small story out of. It felt far too rushed u.u

Maybe one day they'll change their ways but I get the feeling Clamp likes to work outside of the normal standards. It's like they like to cause controversies and get huge fan-bases and then leave appalling endings. Maybe they have a lot of sadists working for them lol^^
