* AssPull: Himawari being PutOnABus. The reason why she no longer shows up in the sequel comes out of nowhere and it's not even fully explained. It was never implied before that the shop was harmful for her and it's made perfectly clear that not a single person except for Doumeki can remain by her side without eventually suffering a terrible fate. In spite of this, she's happily married to what's implied to be a normal person and the show she's visited in the past suddenly hurts her whenever she enters. It's very hard not to conclude that CLAMP simply wanted to erase her from the series, likely because her role had been fulfilled.

* UncannyValley: Occasionally the TV animation (and ''especially'' the movie) slips into this. One reader of ''Anime Insider'' wrote in after they featured Yuuko on the cover and asked, "Why did you put a sexy zombie on the cover?" (referring to [[http://www.animepaper.net/gallery/scans/xxxHOLiC/item93367/ this]] image) and managed to just about sum up most people's grievances with the art in one sentence, while [[spoiler:[[FunnyAneurysmMoment simultaneously spoiling a major plot point unintentionally]]]].

* HilariousInHindsight: Yuko's Japanese voice actress is Creator/SayakaOhara who also voiced Beatrice of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', another witch with butterfly motif, except this witch is more insane and enjoys being a LargeHam.

* 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 acquainted with other dimensional travelers (such as [[Franchise/DoctorWho the Doctor]]) or wizards (such as [[Franchise/HarryPotter Dumbledore]], [[Franchise/TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf]], etc.)

** There are those who solely enjoy the manga but dislike how ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' is 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.

* WholePlotReference: A 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? It seems that CLAMP recycled the script of ''Manga/LegalDrug''.

* ShipMates: Watanuki/Yuuko shippers often support as well Clow Reed/Yuuko, citing Watanuki's resemblance to him [[spoiler:due to being his descendendant]] as the reason of why he would remind her of Clow.
