* BaseBreaker: Watanuki was at first this due to how irritable and histrionic he is. Some found it funny and endearing, while other saw him as annoying and unsympathetic. After his CharacterDevelopment, however, the fandom got unanimous about him.

** The time Watanuki defends the spirit of an unborn girl from the personification of abortion.

to:

** The time Watanuki defends the spirit of an unborn girl from who had been recently aborted. With the personification bad guys of abortion.the day being unrelated supernatural forces who want to steal her soul, the decision of abortion itself is treated as a sad but otherwise acceptable event, stating that every time a unborn child is aborted, their soul will be born another day.



** There are those who solely enjoy the manga but dislike how ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' intertwined with the plot, particularly with Yuuko's and (especially) Watanuki's pasts. The problem gets worse as in order to understand it, they have read the other manga, which is [[MindScrew problematically confusing]] of his own.

** Yuuko's wish being revealed to be Watanuki to continue existing [[spoiler:after her vanishment]], considering how biasé and occasionally fatalist she is about deaths, opens an interesting debate. While it's clear that the witch came to appreciate and love his worker despite all their quirks, the nature of her feelings is less clear about whether they were mentorly/platonic o more romantic in kind as Yuuko/Watanuki shippers defend.
** Similarly, Watanuki's decision to [[spoiler:wait for her during all the eternity]] seem to be quite significant on how important she was for him, considering he chose to devote his life to it despite the presence of more conventional love interests like Himawari and (see Ho Yay) Doumeki.

* SpiritualSucessor: A CLAMP manga about a nervous, irritable guy with a mysterious background and the ability to see supernatural things, who works obligedly in a quirky shop for a sexy, worldy boss fulfilling weird jobs and missions related to the spirit world, often aided by an imperturbable guy with supernatural powers and a lot of subtext.

** ''xxxHOLiC: Rei'' also divided the base. Despite that Yuuko is back, some people still find it more of a rehash of the earlier volumes without any new input on the story [[spoiler: at least until the nature of the setting was revealed.]] Then, it went into a hiatus just to make room for ''Tsubasa World Chronicle'' which anger several readers. And despite that the two mangas are still connected, some readers felt that Watanuki and rest would only get some cameo appearances. In April 2015, the manga went back to publication, though its schedule is somewhat sporadic and it still continues to leave many readers with mixed feelings.

* FanficFuel: There would also be a fanfic of a CLAMP or non-CLAMP character visiting the shop. Or for being a [[DimensionLord Dimensional Witch]], Yuuko is aquainted with other dimensional travellers (such as [[Franchise/DoctorWho the Doctor]]) or wizards (such as [[Franchise/HarryPotter Dumbledore]], [[Franchise/TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf]] etc.)

* HollywoodHomely: Watanuki, considering he's not particularly popular with human girls, but certainly isn't ugly to say the least.
** To be fair, the reason he isn't popular with girls probably has more to do with his flailing and screaming at things no one else can see than his looks.
* HoYay: Once again, it's Creator/{{CLAMP}}. There's subtext not only between Doumeki and Watanuki, but also between Watanuki and ''Haruka'', who he is much more willing to admit fondness for.
** ''Subtext'' between Doumeki and Watanuki?! '''Subtext'''?!! Creator/{{CLAMP}} is certainly pushing "subtext" to its limit - hell, recent chapters have Doumeki and Watanuki alone in a bedroom, with Watanuki [[CrossDresser wearing a loose kimono]], discussing about the ''mating habits of cats'', and what it needs for the ideal mate and love.
*** Not to mention the above statement on how much Watanuki resembles a cat. [[SarcasmMode Oh yeah, nothing going on there]].
*** Although you can consider the "longing for" and sideways glances in reference to [[spoiler: Watanuki's constant longing for Yuuko. Doumeki's proven he doesn't approve of Watanuki's choice, after all]]. He never does.
** Judging by the hints given in Rou [[spoiler:ten years or so have gone by, Himawari is married and only visits the store once a year, while Doumeki and Watanuki spend almost every afternoon together. Doumeki goes out to work, brings the groceries, Watanuki cooks and serves the food, then they talk about anything while watanuki bends around the floor with his clothes almost falling off]]. Their relationship seems to have almost completely become that of a married couple if it weren't for Watanuki somehow managing to remain rather frustratingly ambivalent.
*** The latest chapters have become increasingly homoerotic, such as when [[spoiler:after granting a ghost woman the wish of being reunited with her long lost lover, Watanuki recieved an umbrella as payement and; while explaining to Doumeki that finding a beautiful woman under an umbrella is an amazing discovery for any man, he walks femininely under said object and winks at his friend.]] Whether this is Creator/{{CLAMP}}'s subtle way of messing with our minds or something more remains to be seen, and most probably never will.

* TheScrappy: Himawari is not only seen this by fangirls due to DieForOurShip but most readers in general due to how irrelevant she is to the storyline. She is RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap when her background is revealed.
* ToughActToFollow: ''xxxHolic: Rei'' tries to recapture the great things that the early ''xxxHolic'' volumes had [[spoiler:which includes the return of Yuko as the shop owner]]. Alas, [[BrokenBase the fandom is very divided with it]] and sales seemed to be lower than before.
