After the fallout from the previous volumes, the remains of the group end up in Fai’s [pronounced F-eye] homeworld, where Fai must face up to what he has done, in the present and in the past. Fai’s past is also revealed, pure tragedy.
We find out how Wei-Fang has been manipulating things from the very beginning and how Yuko the Time Witch has been opposing him.
Volumes like this are why I love CLAMP’s stuff. Pure, unadulterated drama and pathos.
Twins sacrificing themselves, rulers going insane & destroying entire countries, memories returning, friends making horrific sacrifices for each other.
Kurogane cuts his own arm off to return Fai’s magic so they can all escape.
How cool is that?!?
This story arc is more about the big picture, so it obviously isn’t resolved. I am actually getting excited about how this will all turn out.
