AND WE OPEN!
Starting, of course, with Watanuki dreaming of Himawari. The world is 0% surprised. Because honestly, does he do anything else?
What I DIDN’T initially realise was that the panels were being cut off half way in the first few panels, as if something was blocking half of Watanuki’s vision. And like, Watanuki wakes up to find Mokona on his face doing just that, but I’m not sure that’s entirely it. Because your eyes are already shut when you’re asleep, Watanuki. They were BOTH SHUT.
AT LEAST MOKONA IS PLEASED EITHER WAY.
Real talk though, I read these two pages and thought nothing of them at first, but I keep coming back to the frame on the second page where Watanuki only has one visible eye.
Because that would mean nothing if the manga was written by literally anyone else in the world, but this is CLAMP.
AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT CLAMP LIKE TO DO WITH EYES.
