Watanuki has several adventures, most with Domeki saving his butt, some by himself and all with Yuko making fun of him the entire time.
The whole tone of xxxHolic is so different from Tsubasa that it is hard to compare them. xxxHolic is darker while at the same time being funnier. Watanuki and Domeki have the perfect comedy vibe between. So much so that even when they are both in terrible danger they are constantly bickering and making the audience laugh.
Watanuki does seem to have an unhealthy fascination for Himiwara, even though it is obvious she doesn’t like him. Tie that in with the fact that the Rain spirit is nuts about him and you have to wonder what is going wrong inside his head.
The overall plot. Having read Tsubasa to the end I am now aware of what is going on, so little things are jumping out. But they are so little that if you didn’t know the end of the story they wouldn’t mean anything.
