Which means that Clow Reed must have been aware of Watanuki's (future) birth and/or existence, and/or examined his case a long time ago...or that there is some hidden link between the two, even if it's a superfluous one.
And when we know that, according to Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, that Syaoran bears Clow's blood (meaning, that he is one of Clow's descendants), Syaoran
Spoiler:
one can only theorize as to what's really going on, whether Syaoran knows the real deal about Watanuki and his importance or whatnot.

I'm still wondering how things will change between him and Watanuki - now that she doesn't have to put a façade and the like. And about her constant smiling, well, it sort of reminds me of Rurouni Kenshin's character, Seta Sojiro, who constantly smiles to hide his dark past, possibly as a way to defend himself from whatever haunts/plagues him. It' perhaps her way to fend off the sadness that her curses brings her on a constant basis.

i think this WAS the climax. i think i read somewhere that after this was revealed the manga will shortly end T_T
Is that true? I'm a bit dubious about this because, even though Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles also reached a quite climactic point (if not the crux of the story since it revolves around Syaoran, his true identity and his past), I'm not sure whether everything's over or about to. Sure, CLAMP isn't obligated to prolong XXXHolic to cover TRC's aftermath (as I guess we're entering TRC's final or penultimate arc from the recent revelations) since both timelines are independent from each other but since it's their way to tie all of their universes together, I wonder if they aren't going to keep it running for a little longer, even if it's just a few months. Moreover, there are still a few things left to discuss in XXXHolic, like Watanuki's nature and how to deal with his 'curse', etc, etc.
This should give us some hope on seeing it lasting a little while longer, I guess.

I see. Maybe, then. It could also be something like the reason why Watanuki can see spirits, Youko's past or whatnot - there are still many things left hidden in XXXHolic's world, like what Clow saw in Watanuki that made the boy so interesting, etc...

BTW, the O.A. person should be Ohkawa Ageha:

I think there were originally six of them but one quit the group to follow her own path...

Oh I really LOVE this manga *o*

The story is amazing and I like the characters so much, Yuko is so cool ^__^

Well... I've got the volumes 1 - 7, here in Spain there are just 7 on sale... I've been waiting for the 8th for so long >.<

Personally my favourite characters are Yuko and Domeki, but I also like Watanuki a lot... but right now Himawari seems to be having more and more importance...

I prefer not to read spoilers ^^!

I think there is still a bit to go as Himawari's secret is not the biggest secret they could have revealed. Also. for long running stories, the multiple climatic points (of differening magnitudes) are neccessary to keep the story from getting stale usually. I think we are closing in on the end, but I think there are still several big things yet to come.

Well, I believe the ONE secret that should be the crux of the entire series is nothing but...Watanuki's own nature. Clow and Yuuko both foresaw his importance and how special he was - heck, even the true Syaoran paid a certain price to save him even if, by all accounts, both are (to the best of our knowledge, of course) complete strangers. It simply shows that beyond the influence Watanuki's actions have on the world at large (throughout the adventures Yuuko often sends him off to), there is more to him than meets the eye and what he simply does right now.

I guess that when an explanation on what exactly is so special about him will be released, the series will simply come to a close - because the character and plot development will most likely run out of new material to add on and there' not much maneuver margin left. But then again, the latest chapters spurred a lot of questions about why Watanuki stands out - which makes me wonder if we aren't already entering an arc centered around him...possibly the final one. But I could always be wrong, of course. One can only hope.

I adore xxxHOLiC. I've been waiting for quite some time for the ninth issue to show up here in my city. I am very interested to see how the story will progress and what, exactly, Watanuki is going to become. I also want to see the showdown between Yūko and Fei Wong Reed that's been hinted at.
