Yuuko x Watanuki - Precious by haine11 | XxxHolic | Pinterest | Xxxholic, Manga and Anime
So I've been curious for awhile now how other's view their relationship. I've always thought their was something more to their relationship other. Upon her death, Yuuko finally explains her connections with Clow Reed. As Yuuko lay dying, Clow Reed had the briefest thought that he. Yūko Ichihara (壱原侑子, Ichihara Yuuko) is a fictional character in the Clamp Initially Yūko is merely Watanuki's employer, but their relationship gradually She teaches Watanuki valuable lessons about the world and gives wise advice.
Maru and Moro were modeled after two girls she knew when she was younger; they had always been together, and not even death could separate them. Sometimes, when the rain is falling and the sound echoes through the empty shop, she takes out a pair of spectacles from a drawer in her room and wonders what could have been.
She quickly puts them away, however. The outcome had been decided the moment Clow had split his souls, the second Sakura-hime from Clow country had been born.
The only thing left unseen is the path, though it saddens her the more that is unveiled. She knows the horrors and the decisions that await them, and only hopes that they are all strong enough not to break. She is waiting, though, because the things he needs to be taught are being learned slowly.
When the time comes that Doumeki cannot teach him anything more, she will take over. She will tell him what he needs to know, even though she knows that it will destroy him.
Clow had been fond of pecan pie and apple cider. The customers who flock to her are people who are capable of saving themselves, of granting the wishes they so eagerly pay for. So very rarely does she have a customer like Watanuki who genuinely needs her help, and so rarely does she meet people like Doumeki who earnestly figure situations out for themselves.
It is the customers like them that give her job meaning. When Doumeki became her customer, she had smiled and looked at him.
He stared resolutely back and asked what the price would be. She had merely looked back at him before speaking. Himawari had bit her lip and moved forward, but Doumeki had stopped her.
She held a special place in her heart for Himawari. The girl was cute, but her steps were heavy with the burden fate had bestowed upon her. There was a time when she was younger where she protested - loudly - that she would never have children, never fall in love.
Watanuki awakens in the shop, with Doumeki by his side. Outside, Doumeki and Mokona chat, revealing a few things. Mokona finally reveals that because of their shared vision, the decision when to use the egg depends on Doumeki.
He chooses to succeed Yuko, however to complete his task he needs to regain his power to see spirits which Yuko had taken away. To regain this power, as a price, he can't leave the shop at all. Watanuki continues to grant wishes in the shop, although often taking too little or too much as prices. He gets along better with Doumeki as now he acts like someone completely different and quite mature, he doesn't hide his emotions and stops making movements and weird expressions.
He tries not to get hurt when granting wishes, since everyone wants him to continue existing without hurting his heart or body. It seems that the transformation has completed and his personality suffers a great change. His magic is finally released, according to the Spider Queen he might no longer be human.
Four years after, he meets Syaoran again although it seems like 2 years to Syaoran. His coming inspired him to make a new signature, with a bird, taking this as a price he sends him and the group back to Clow Country so he can see Sakura again. Then the Izuna's master speak directly to him asking for help and the price will be given through her lips.
Once the task is met, Doumeki gives him the tape rewinding it again and again to hear: Doumeki's grandson, who looks exactly like his grandfather Shizuka and Haruka, is now keeping Watanuki company. Watanuki is now a powerful mage in his own right but finds a dream that takes all of his power to unlock. Doumeki's grandson has still not decided to use the egg on Watanuki. At this point, Rei's stand in the manga's general timeline is still unknown. But from what it's been seen Watanuki is still as in xxxHolic Yuko's assistant, which is the major twist as Yuko had died at xxxHolic's finale.
He's also still going to the institute, being friends with both Doumeki and Himawari. Although Maru and Moro make their appearance, Black Mokona hasn't been seen yet. Kohane has not appeared either. It's a recurring theme in the manga that Watanuki needs to make a choice, but later on it's hinted that he already has chosen.
Also, each time Watanuki seems to remember something important regarding this choice, he passes out. The first customers that come to the shop in Rei, are two women each of them carrying a doll that represent their other "friend". Although they do not come for their wishes, rather they come for necessity which is another recurring theme in Rei.
One of them "stole" the other's boyfriend and for this, she feels that she must suffer, using the doll to hurt her. Each time they come a greater damage is shown to these dolls, which shows that they are hurting each other, possibly resulting in each other's death.
He and Doumeki are later on, sent to investigate an event in a room in Watanuki's apartment building which now it's revealed to be the same as Kobato's. They wait, watching a show recommended by Himawari but once it ends, Watanuki hears a voice. Watanuki hears the voice frequently since then and each time he answers the voice.
Walking outside of school, he meets with the voice again only that this time it has a wish. A wish for him to "come back", but he doesn't understand the meaning of it. The spirit chases him down to Yuko's shop where she destroys it. During the summer, Yosuzume goes to the shop with a wish.

To grant it, Watanuki and Doumeki are sent into the forest to protect Yamainu a spirit that protects the mountains. They give him a lunch box as an offering. After finishing their task, Watanuki and Doumeki return to the shop and talk to Yuko, as she explains that the past cannot be returned to, as well as explaining them that they are married.
Yuko gives them the choice between two items that they had given her: Yosuzume's will guide them to a place they want to go once, but Yamainu's will guide them to a place they want to return to once. As she waits for their decision, Watanuki seems unable to choose. Watanuki and Doumeki come across and old lady wanting to get rid of three hundred yen coins, as she comes into the temple and tosses them into the offering box.
Does Yuko Ichihara likes Kimihiro Watanuki from xXxHOLiC?
Watanuki finds out that these were used as a lucky charm, but nevertheless warns Himawari from doing so. They meet the old lady again, who explained them her situation as being too uneasy about it when an injured man forced her to exchange them.
Watanuki then realizes that it isn't a lucky spell but a curse, and that the curse cannot be broken once someone has involved in it. Then Doumeki asks him how he can know so much, and seemingly losing consciousness he says that he saw too many things with Yuko.
He then asks what did he do after those things "happened", and he replies that "he chose". Afterwards his cellphone rings, he answers but the caller hangs up. Once he's with Yuko, she explains the curse to him and Watanuki realizes that he said the same thing that she said, to Doumeki.
He wonders if he's doing something wrong, but Yuko replies that he's not doing something right or wrong. As she tries to explain this to him, he loses consciousness and falls into Yuko's arms, who tells him he "should already know what will return and what will not. The main characters are both intrigued and suspicious when first meeting Watanuki. However, one most notes that there is a strong sense of loneliness coming from Watatnuki but can't figure out why.
In episode 7, Watanuki, reveals himself to be the shop owner of a wish granting shop in the body of a dog to the main character Saya. Throughout the anime, since episode 1, the dog has appeared many times and is always around Saya. Even though the dog does not speak, he gives off the feeling that he knows and understands Saya's situation. Following on to episode 7 once again, Watanuki tells Saya everything that he can, admitting that he was sent to stay by her side as a result of a wish from one of his customers.
Watanuki does not reveal who asked this of him but that he must appear as a dog to Saya until the wish is granted. The full specifications of the wish are not clear at this point either.
The dog appears to be a proxy that Watanuki uses to speak through, and had appeared on the island in order to give Saya advice. He retains his two differently-colored eye appearance, and serious, but mellow composure. Saya receives a new katana from him, having destroyed her previous one, and Watanuki tells her that she can make the payment after she returns, implying that he wants her to return safely.
Talents and Abilities Watanuki's cooking skill is exceptional At the beginning of the series, Watanuki has the power to see spirits and other things that are invisible for everyone else. He can also feel other people's emotions when they are talking. If they have a negative feeling, Watanuki starts to feel dizzy. If they have a positive feeling, Watanuki feels a calm and cheerful aura. In xxxHolic Shunmuki Ova, Watanuki follows a path made by Haruka to find five objects that allow him to break the barrier between his world and the Dream World, allowing him to enter when he wants.
He can create or break barriers, make a road to find something or someone and travel or send people to other dimensions. He also mentions that he's more powerful inside Dream World. Watanuki's Magic Circle Later, in the last chapter of the manga, Yuko told him through his dream that his powers had grew up enough and he doesn't need to stay in the shop. Watanuki has an exceptional cooking skill, although he thinks of it as a hobby.
Yuuko will never get bored waiting for Watanuki's food everyday, though. Relationships Why should a choice, in which I had no say, decide Decide anything about a person who is so important to me?!
Watanuki has a mentor-student relationship with Yuko, one that evolves in strength and importance over time. At the beginning of the manga, Watanuki only respected Yuko because she was older and wiser than Watanuki but he didn't genuinely care for her and often thought of her as treacherous and selfish.
As the story progressed, Watanuki started caring for Yuko's well being and helped her with customers. At this time Watanuki also became more tolerant of Yuko and did not yell at her as much. By the end of xxxHolic, Yuko and Watanuki shared a deep and understanding bond as friends and Yuko even acted as Watanuki's caretaker.

At this point, Watanuki confided with Yuko many of his problems and even talked to Yuko about serious and more complicated topics that could not have been discussed before due to Watanuki's immaturity. Yuko and Watanuki also show signs of holding a sort of love for each other though the true nature of it is somewhat ambiguous and could vary in degrees between the two. For example, when Watanuki and Yuko found each other in their dreams and Watanuki told her that he would grant any one of her wish no matter what it was as long as it made her happy.
They find each other in their dreams several other times, usually being in the shop's yard. In one of these dreams, Yuko asks Watanuki if he's happy with being and working at the shop and Watanuki says that he is, to which Yuko says that if the shop is "reason enough" for Watanuki to stay, she's happy and Watanuki takes and holds Yuko's hand that was touching his face.
Watanuki's caring feelings for Yuko appear once again when she's dying and Watanuki tells her that he will stay in the shop waiting for her and if wishes can come true just by wishing them and wanting them enough, he wishes to meet her again no matter how long it takes her to come back. Four years after Yuko's death, Watanuki meets Haruka Domeki in one of his dreams and as they are talking, Haruka points out that Watanuki is wearing his glasses even though he does not need them.
Watanuki then tells him that he forgets to take them off sometimes and then he starts to tell Haruka that before Yuko died, when all Yuko's past customers said that they didn't remember Yuko, that it was the most frightening thing that he had ever experienced. He explained that he was also scared that he too might forget Yuko, which is why he had decided to carry on her things wearing her clothes, carrying her pipe, taking ownership of her shop etc.
And even if I do forgetI'll come close to remembering. Watanuki later admits that his wish to see Yuko has also turned into a form of desire. In the last chapterYuko meets Watanuki in a dream and tells Watanuki that he has waited in the shop long enough for her and that he could now leave the shop and be free.
When Watanuki awakes, he explains his dream to Shizuka's great-grandson. When Doumeki asks Watanuki if he is happy that he saw Yuko again, even in a dream, he says yes.
He then proceeds to tell Doumeki that even though he is free and has the choice to come and go as he pleases, he will stay in the shop and wait for Yuko. This shows the desire that Watanuki really feels for Yuko because even though he saw a dream version of her, but not the real one, he will keep waiting for her just for the hope that one day a miracle will happen and he will be able to see her just once again.

Here, the series ends, leaving it that Watanuki will wait for Yuko for as long as it takes. It is also revealed that Watanuki is a descendant of Clow's. Clow also gave him his appearance, purposely. Chibi Kitsune Watanuki and Chibi Kitsune are good friends. Watanuki met him for the first time at his and his father's oden stand that cannot usually be seen by humans. The two form a friendly bond but do not see each other often since they live in two different worlds.
Once, When Watanuki went to the Monster Processionall the monsters realized that Watanuki and Doumeki were humans and chased them, trying to kill them when Chibi Kitsune interfered and told them all what a good person Watanuki is until the monsters spared him. Later on, to express his thanks, Watanuki send Chibi Kitsune a dream in a balloon from the dream collector which he had traded the broken arrow from one of his dreams for five of the dream collector's dreams.
Kitsune He's Chibi Kitsune's father and he's very kind to Watanuki. He first met Watanuki at night in his oden stand. Watanuki always compliments Kitsune on his cooking, especially his famous oden a type of stew.
Kitsune is especially kind to Watanuki because Watanuki and Chibi Kitsune are friends and Watanuki is very generous, giving him a dream balloon and a sacred arrow, to Chibi.
Himawari and Watanuki are best friends at school, often eating lunch together and walking home together after school, but there always seems to be something more than friendship between them. Since Himawari was first introduced, Watanuki already had a deep crush on her. He often says that he loves Himawari he only says this in his head or to Yuko Ichihara or Watanuki and Himawari on xxxHolic anime Season 4 cover Shizuka Domeki but in reality, this is just a mere infatuation.
Whenever Watanuki is asked why he likes Himawari, he answers that it is because she is kind and cute and even though these are good traits in a person, it is not nearly enough reason to be in love with someone and so all of his friends know that this is not real love but just a crush. Watanuki also reveals in Vol. Later on in the series, Watanuki falls out of the second story window of the school and nearly dies until Shizuka brings him to Yuko's shop where she heals him. This is when Himawari displays care for Watanuki by paying half of the price to Yuko for healing Watanuki which was taking all the scars that Watanuki beared from the fall.
When Watanuki finally wakes up, Himawari talks to him and reveals to him that she is bad luck - literally. Himawari had been born with a bad luck curse at birth which meant that she brought bad luck to those whom she meets, talks to, or touches with the exception of her parents.
Himawari then tells Watanuki that they should not be friends or speak to each other any more because she does not want to hurt him. Watanuki then stops her and tells her that even though she is bad luck, he always felt lucky to have met her and that no matter what she said, he would still try to be with her. He then reveals that he likes her and promises her that he'll never do anything to hurt her or to make her cry.
Later on, Watanuki asks Yuko if there is a way to remove Himawari's curse and Yuko says that she can but the price it will be all her happiness. She asks Watanuki if he is going to pay the price but Watanuki says that if he hurt himself for Himawari's sake then she will be sad and it will hurt her more than him.
Watanuki decides that the only thing he will do for Himawari is continue being her best friend and making her truly smile every time. Yuko does agree to help Watanuki with his relationship with Himawari by giving him an egg and telling him to sleep with the egg beside him and whatever he wants to emerge out of the egg, it will appear. In dreams, Watanuki wishes that something will be born that will keep Himawari company so that she will not be alone and so Tanpopo is born, a bird that is immune to Himawari's bad luck.
Himawari remains the same but it can be seen that she starts developing feelings for Watanuki after his personality changes a bit. They spend more time together since Watanuki is being carefully after being with her. The last time Himawari appears is after giving some cookies to Watanuki made by herself.
In xxxHolic RO, Watanuki and Himawari grow apart and their relationship ends in a "more than friends, but less than lovers" relationship. Because her misfortune affliction and the shop cause problems to occur, she promised to never enter the shop except on Watanuki's birthday. Even if they only can see each other once a year, Himawari falls in love with Watanuki, however in Chapterit is stated that Himawari is married with a unknown businessman who knows about Watanuki and accept their friendship.
Watanuki sends Himawari and her husband a chrysanthemum wine to give them fortune and good health. Shizuka Domeki Watanuki and Shizuka's meeting happened before the manga started.YUUKO "Desnudate" [xxxHOLiC]
They had first seen each other on the school stairway and Watanuki, annoyed with just Shizuka's face, started yelling at him. The first time we see the two together in the manga is after gym class when the two had been playing soccer. Himawari was telling Watanuki what a good soccer player he is and that he almost scored a goal. Watanuki said that he didn't score any because he felt bad for the goalie. Shizuka, whom was the goalie, then appeared and started arguing with Watanuki calmly though Watanuki at this point was scolding him furiously.
Through Yuuko's bidding, Watanuki asked Shizuka to use his temple so that they could tell ghost stories an Shizuka agreed. After the event, Yuuko concluded that Shizuka could purify spirits while Watanuki attracted them, and so while Watanuki and Shizuka are near each other, Watanuki will not be bothered by spirits.
From then on, Yuuko sends Watanuki and Shizuka on missions together in order to grant various customers' wishes. Much to the annoyance of Watanuki, Shizuka is always asking for food and eats so much that Watanuki complains.
