Naruto 437, Tsubasa 214, xxx-HOLiC 174

Okay, right off the bat. HUGE FREAKING SPOILERS for Tsubasa, xxxHolic, and Naruto.

You were warned.

First off, for Naruto... I really freaking hate Pain. He killed Grampa frog and most likely Gramma frog and now... Dear Hinata confesses her love to Naruto only to be slapped down by Pain and stabbed. There's no clear cut killing, but there's a good chance he gave her a fatal wound. Of all the people I'd hate to see die in this series, she was on the top of the list. God damn it. I love Hinata, and I really don't want her to be dead too... Needless to say, Naruto goes insane... Kyuubi-style.

Tsubasa 214 delivers YET ANOTHER of its many many twists, and this one left me thinking that I should have seen it coming. Everything that Syaoran has been working for has been to make up for a moment's hesitation and in what would seem to the story's climax, he grasps Sakura's hand and pulls her from the grip of death. Isn't this what Fei Wang didn't want to happen? No. His stupid smug little ass reveals to a very shocked Syaoran, Fai, and Kurogane, that this is exactly what he planned. What it all means remains to be seen, but in the chapter's last page, Yuuko is seen in a prone position in a flurry of flower petals... Why do I have a bad feeling about this?

That bad feeling is only reinforced by xxxHolic 174... Seeing my all-time favorite Clamp character disappear in a dream after ominously speaking of parting in the previous chapter isn't exactly a good sign. You would do that to me, wouldn't you, Clamp? Jeez. T__T Don't go, Yuuko! I love you so much!!

Please end it well, Clamp... My fangirly happiness depends on it...
