Episode 42: X Wrap-Up — So Many Endings

Title overlayed with the CLAMPcast logo. Image behind is of Kamui and Fuuma, with the sacred sword.

Lucy and Robin record their final X episode…at least for now.

CW: child abuse, self-harm, blood, gore, death, assault, and other grisly things. Also a potentially glib/dark humor approach to grim subjects. If it came up before…it probably comes up again here.
