from what I heard about the ending, I think she gets uncursed??? But the ending is pretty much the worst thing you could do to Watanuki’s character imho. So sticking with the cuteness of the earlier parts forever!

oh okay

yeah it sounds terrible. It also means Doumeki and Kohane must be at least sort of unhappy as well which is not cool okay. 

so yeah word to that.

snazzysnafu replied to your post: right so I basically went as far as I’m goin’ with xxxholic

that’s pretty much the same deal as me and the manga, I just couldn’t deal with all of the angst and TRC on the horizon. So I stopped reading it and decided to pretend that everything that came after didn’t happen!

haha yeah, I’m just going to pretend it ended where I stopped. I mean sure, I have no idea what Yuuko’s deal is, but apparently I’d have to read TRC to fully get that anyway and it’s really sad and bizarre and confusing regardless. 

though I do have to wonder since it apparently happens how Himawari could get married what with her thing and all. Is her husband immune to it like Doumeki is?

right so I basically went as far as I’m goin’ with xxxholic

like I was nervous about the timeskip, so I spoiled myself and yeah, that’s too sad and weird and Tsubasa-heavy and what, I’m totally fine stopping with everyone being like <3 at each other.

Also apparently Doumeki vowed to follow Watanuki around for the rest of his life because he saw him talking to a dead cat about how he would die alone and was like “NO YOU’RE NOT I’M FOLLOWING YOU AROUND FOREVER” where did that cat even come from did you just find a dead cat and start talking to it Watanuki? Still, awww.

Then there was the part where Doumeki was like “I doubt he thinks of me as a friend even now” UM NO WERE YOU NOT LISTENING HOWEVER MANY EPISODES AGO WHEN SOMEONE ASKED IF YOU TWO WERE FRIENDS AND WATANUKI WAS LIKE “YES UNFORTUNATELY" . that was still a yes, just tsundere style. YOU NEED TO LISTEN OR YOU’LL MISS THESE COVERT EXPRESSIONS OF AFFECTION JEEZ HAVEN’T YOU LEARNED THAT BY NOW. 

Whatever everyone on this show is heartbreaking and frustrating but now i’m done. DONE I TELL YOU.

Mokona (to Watanuki): After all, all you ever do is cook, get mad, fall over or make weird movements.

Doumeki: He’s pretty spot on.

Never has the entire essence and being of one character been summed up so succintly.

Doumeki: corpses these days don&#8217;t rot as much.

wut.
"People these days eat a lot of additives, colorings and preservatives. Those accumulate and preserve the body itself"
I can&#8217;t even count how many ways that doesn&#8217;t make sense.
I knew Doumeki had to be smoking something.
Show, you could have just said it was magic I would have bought that.

now doumeki is apparently going to be able to see what Watanuki’s seeing whenever he has *intense emotions*

would you guys just make out already

oh well at least this ensure Watanuki is going to have a constant rescuer even more so. which is good because he really needs one constantly.

also Yuuko ships them ridiculously hard, and anti-ships Watanuki/Himewari. FOR MYSTERIOUS REASONS.

So meanwhile on xxxholic

Watanuki now has a piece of Doumeki inside him!

what it’s true

So like one of Watanuki’s eyes was brown because of this development? but then in the next episode both his eyes are blue again i guess the animators are lazy or it…normalized…

you know wouldn’t this mean Doumeki would need glasses I mean Watanuki already has them but

does Doumeki just compensate for poor vision in one eye with sheer stoicness

oh and also spiders are apparently assholes because the lady who presides over them is a total asshole. She even admitted it. 

ANYWAY IN THE NEXT EPISODE

APPARENTLY DOUMEKI’S GRANDFATHER LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE HIM

except he smiles sometimes that’s how you can tell the difference. (seriously that’s how Watanuki told the difference. He was like “Doumeki?” *smile* “oh you must he his grandfather okay”

And Doumeki dreams about his grandfather going around on a white horse shooting stuff what an interesting subconcious. I thought for a second that Doumeki had literally procured a white horse to rescue Watanuki which would have been hilarious you might as well but no he just dreams about his grandfather doing that.

Also I like how Watanuki was like “WHO THE HELL IS SHIZUKA oh Doumeki’s first name i didn’t know he had one.”

also at least according to the dream grandfather Doumeki was like…dressed as a girl when he was younger? Watanuki is like NOW I KNOW HIS EMBARRASSING PAST but like whatever man I doubt Doumeki would care yo. I have no idea what this means, but it’s now my headcanon Doumeki is trans as that seems to be the most logical assumption to make???

WILL THIS EVER BE BOUGHT UP AGAIN PROBABLY NOT. 

the internet was out so i couldn’t liveblog so you get this giant post.

wow that spider is AN ASSHOLE

you can rebuild a house and a spider can rebuild it’s web pretty quickly

you can’t regenerate someone’s eye?

Also if that seriously happened every time a spider web was destroyed, the entire world would be blind.

so what is it because it’s a temple spider or

also Doumeki and Watanuki’s entire relatonship is 

"SCREW YOU FOR CARING ABOUT ME"

"NO SCREW YOU FOR CARING ABOUT ME” 

guys guys just stop
