There are many mysterious things in this world,
And that shop is one of them.

That is a store that grants wishes, where the store-owner, who stopped his own time, inherited the secret of running it.

The store is certainly present, but it is not opened to every one.

Only when they have a connection can connected persons
Know,
And visit,
And have an audience with the secluded store owner.

The store will grant any wish.
If it's a wish that the store owner can grant,

If you can pay the price.

M&M: A guest!

A guest!


Watanuki: He's not a guest, is he.

FX: Bounce

Mokona: Doumeki has his own house, at least.
So he's a guest--

Watanuki: But he's coming in and sleeping here,
In this shop.

Watanuki: Did you go shopping?

Doumeki: Yeah.
You said just Chinese cabbage was fine, but there was none.

Watanuki: Is it impossible in June?
What about spinach?

Well, spinach is delicious in winter too,
But there's nothing to be done.

Maru, Moro--
I'll make dinner, so help me--

Doumeki: Thanks for the meal.

FX: Bowing

Watanuki: Thank you for eating it.

Mokona: Oh--! You've prepared liquor and side dishes for after dinner!
Just like a good wife!

FX: Springing up

Watanuki: I'm not a wife!

Mokona: What's today's Japanese liquor-- Pure rice-- Choice draft--
Or maybe--

FX: Springing!

FX: Turning head

Watanuki: Before that, clear this tray with Maru and Moro.

Moknoa: Huh--!?

What about Doumeki!?
-----------------
!!! page 09
Watanuki: He bought the ingredients.

Mokona: Mokona helped too!

Watanuki: With what?

Mokona: I helped with eating!

Watanuki: I know I said it.

Mokona: No--! No--!

Watanuki: If you don't do it properly,
I won't let you drink, or eat.

That you've passed ten years too, will you pour that out?

You going back to the university again today?

Doumeki: Yeah.

Watanuki: Well, I couldn't imagine you as a salaryman, but
Staying at university as an assistant…

I thought once you finished graduate school you'd surely take up the temple.

Doumeki: I still wanted to continue.

Watanuki: With folklore studies.

Doumeki: That's right.

Watanuki: Not just you, but Kohane-chan too--she even did the same major at the same university.
Is it that interesting?

Doumeki: Yeah.

Watanuki: Is it just interesting?

Obaa-chan told me to go get them. [TN: See note 1 below]
-----------------
!!! page 19
Watanuki: Yeah,
She emailed me yesterday.
Thanks for coming out of your way.

Kohane: This is plum wine that Obaa-chan brewed.

Since you divided up the ofuku before. [TN: Dumplings made of pounded rice. Yum.]

Watanuki: You really know the words, if you know about sharing the ofuku.
Did you ask Obaa-chan?

Mokona: Plum wine ♥ [TN: Sing it, Mokona!]

Kohane: No,
Doumeki-san…No,
From Shizuka-kun.

Watanuki: You call him Doumeki-san at school, huh.

Kohane: Since I'm a student,
I learn a lot of things.

Watanuki: From this guy, huh.

Watanuki: Since today's Sunday,
If you don't have anything to do, how about dinner with us?

Kohane: Thanks,
I will.

But tell her not to drink too much, okay?

Mokona: Tell her the plum wine was delicious!

Kohane: Right.

Tell her to bring about five sho bottles! [TN: One sho = 1.8L)

Watanuki: Yeah.

Watanuki: Why do you think that?

Doumeki: You sent Tsuyuri home alone, and I'm the only one left.
Besides that, the liquor.

You're the guy who declared that you "won't open it, barring extraordinary circumstances."

Watanuki: You and Mokona really do remember things
About liquor well.

Watanuki: I think that it's quite a pain,
But I can't use anything but a barrier while this little one's by my side.

Watanuki: I don't want to expose it to the feeling of offensive techniques.

Do you want to come in?

TN 1: I'm just going to start calling the fortune-teller 'Obaa-chan' now, since trying to find English locutions that read well is just not worth the effort involved. This is an affectionate referent for an old lady who may or may not be related to one; it literally means "grandmother."

TN 2: When unripe plums are in season a lot of people in Japan make their own pickled plums and plum wine; I would have done it myself if I'd stayed longer than a year, since grocery stores everywhere sell the necessary supplies. Once you put the plums in the vinegar or put the sugar and plums in the liquor, all you need to do is keep the sealed jar in a cool dark place for a year. And hope you got the recipe proportions right. Yum.

Oh, Watanuki and Doumeki and Kohane. Doomed OT3 of doom, Y/Y?

Also, is it me or have the intervening years turned Mokona into a total lush?

Thank you so much for this! This seems like such a significant chapter to me, and your translation only confirms that. Watanuki, Doumeki and Kohane are awesome together!

I love the notes, too -- it's nice to know some background things that make the text more meaningful.

Again, thanks!

I'm also confused with the Rou thing (personally I don't like it, I think it only messes with our brains xD).

CLAMP-NET.COM is listing it as 205. Kodansha is still counting the tankoubons as "XXXHOLiC" (the next one will be volume 18, not volume 1).

I think it's not the same case as Rayearth, where it was a completely new title, Mahou Kishi Rayearth II.

Looking forward to the rest of the translation =)

I like the new shift in time the story seems to have taken, its interesting to see everyone change yet again. And with the increased page size per chapter I hope we get more focus on character development.

It must have been a much nicer pace to do the four smaller chapter for translating though :D

The emphasis on Doumeki and Kohane both choosing folklore as their fields of study makes me think they have a long-term plan for "saving" Watanuki. It's a shame that CLAMP skipped forward another six years, though.

I don't know, I kind of live everyone better this way, we've got even more understated angst now. Understated angst! I eat it up with a spoon.

And yeah, it's totally not a coincidence that they both did folklore at the same university (which in my head is totally Waseda. Most CLAMP characters went to Waseda in my head). They are so totally going to try to save him! Or something.

Yeah, despite my comments I think what's important is that they clearly have a very strong mutual relationship (of doom) with each other.

And yeah, the wife jokes are practically making Watanuki/Doumeki text (or, Mokona is a slahser. actually, I can totally see Mokona trolling the internet for slash). Oh CLAMP, way to bait the fangirls.

Yuuko was a great slasher too she brought them together and make impossible they could be apart, Mokona is only continuing the legacy, and Himawari ship them too

I think Doumeki fell for Watanuki the day in the rain, years ago, now even if Watanuki never acknowledge it with all the words Doumeki bring the food, and live there and he is prepare to die for him always.
Watanuki is less hard with him now, and maybe they totally do it sometimes when watanuki is not alert enough to think

poor Doumeki always break my heart, he is so in love with Kimi!

Kohane love them both as parents or big bros, idk if this will change into another kind of relationship??

time skipped again... This makes me sad, I want to see Himawari so bad.

To be honest as the series progresses, I really appreciate the relationship between Watanuki and Doumeki (and Kohane) They are trying to save him or (maybe) even trying to revive Yuuko-san in their own hands. But the series makes lonelier than ever ... oh angst.

the wife thing, man Yuuko should do this >< CLAMP are such fangirls!

Feel free to ignore my nitpicks, ne.

You missed two very last bubbles with girls silly responses.

!!! page 10
Watanuki: I've gotten good.

Uhm Wasn't this said by Doumeki?

!!! page 22
Doumeki: You can't see even though you're a Tsuyuri?

How about using "Even Tsuyuri can't see it?" since he's just calling her by her name?

!!! page 38
Watanuki: I think that it's quite a pain,
But I can't use a barrier while this little one's by my side.

結界しか使えない Isn't this more like he can't use anything except kekkai?

!! page 39
Watanuki: It's not meant for attacking.

攻術の気に当てたくない kinda nags at me. >_<; Perhaps Watanuki doesn't want that "little one" to be afflicted by what Watanuki feels when he's using attacking spells? Don't know a better way to say it. >.>;

No, thanks for this! That is a problem with the chapter length, self-proofing becomes an issue.

As for page 22...I kind of get the sense from でも that there's something about her family name, maybe that they've discovered. If he were just calling her by her family name I'd expect something different, probably までも。He repeats it later on, too, for even more emphasis.

Ah, you're right! I missed that しか on page 38.

I've rephrased on 39, I didn't quite get the nuance of たくない the first time around.

Well... We've never heard of Kohane's sight being hereditary (most of her powers were because of Sakura's feather anyway), so unless Doumeki knows something we don't... he shouldn't mean "You can't see it though you're member of Tsuyuri family". Perhaps he says it like "Your sight is so much stronger than mine yet even you can't see it". Or he might refer to her being a "numbered" kid like Watanuki (kanji in the name = b-day IIRC). Who knows... Damn you Clamp for being so confusing.
Anyway, I get your point. :)

So let me get this straight.

With this chapter it has now been 10 years since Yuuko's death then the four years we had when Rou just started.

Doumeki is still a student at the university (not a teacher) and now Kohane is as well.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Doumeki has finished college (4 years) and graduate school--there's no indication whether he took a Ph.D. or not. He's now probably formally a researcher or a research student, depending.

But yeah, 10 years since Watanuki inherited the shop.

Translating this inevitably makes me hungry.

Thank you so much for the translation! It's a little surprising - and depressing - that 6 more years have passed already, but I hope that means that something important will be coming up soon.

Yeah, seriously.

I was wondering about that--it only takes four chapters of this length to make a tankoubon, so how many more volumes of story do CLAMP have planned? I don't think there's much point to moving the manga if it's in the magazine for less than a year, so we have to have at least another eleven chapters/three tankoubon left. But that's a lot of story, particularly compared to the weekly serialization.

Yes, I don't think it will end soon either, considering the change of magazine and all. It's hard to find any indications of how long CLAMP are planning to continue the series though - sometimes I wonder if they know for sure themselves. Until Rou started the story always seemed to have a firm direction, and everything pointed against a conclusion that would coincide with the TRC one, but now it feels like it could take almost any path. 3-4 more volumes sounds plausible to me, but it all depends on how things will develop. I just hope they won't make another ten-year time jump for every new volume. D:

Thank you for translation!

I enjoyed this chapter...but it makes me sad there stil is no sign of Himawari-chan (since I really like her)
And now it's been 10 years... I don't want it to end like the Rou OAD :/ I mean...what was the whole himawari and watanuki love each other in a previous chapter for then? :/
I wouldn't mind the for Dome/Wata to be honest xD But I'd love to see that his long time love would end good...Oh well

I loved Watanuki beeing the "wife" xDD
And Kohane-chan was really cute in this chapter ^^ (well she's always cute xD)

I can't wait until the next chapter *-*
