In chapter 2 of Volume 3, there is a hint that Watanuki has a higher purpose to the xxxHolic universe than to simply do Yūko's handiwork and have his wish granted. In the final panel, Yūko cryptically remarks, "Watanuki is a good kid, didn't we both think that? Clow..." This strongly suggests that Watanuki's arrival at the store was expected and possibly prepared for, just as Clow Reed and Yūko prepared the Mokona's for the Tsubasa group's arrival and Sakura's staff (the Sakura of Cardcaptor Sakura) well in advance. Yūko also mentions that her store was created specifically for a future event. At this point, the audience can only speculate as to what said event is. It is also worth mentioning that Watanuki and Sakura Kinomoto share the same birth date: April 1. It can also be noted that Watanuki's given name, Kimihiro, means "Prophet", Yūko's fortune teller friend comments this is a good name for him. Watanuki also displays some precognitive abilities, notably the morning before he lost his eye he has a dream where half his field of vision is blocked out.

In later chapters of the manga Yûko allows Watanuki to experience things on his own to contribute to his growth and maturity. This was explained in Volume 8 of the manga, where the change of his character was shown when he saved the Zashiki Warashi from the Spider Queen. This was noticed by other supernatural beings as well.

Watanuki loses sight in his right eye after it was eaten by the Spider Queen/Ruler of Spiders in Volume 8, and Watanuki now shares half of his right's eye vision with Dômeki. Chapter 121's colored first page reveals that his eyes are now heterochromatic with one blue eye and one brown/green eye, similar to the Syaoran clone.

In chapter 152 of Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle, Watanuki is revealed to be in a dream world with Sakura's soul. Yūko states that he "will become a chance that will change the future again." When Kurogane asked who that person is, Yūko only said, "That's an unrelated story...for now", hinting that Watanuki may one day encounter the TRC group.

Another area of concern that Watanuki has now been lately falling into dream like state regardless any time of the day or circumstances, such as when Kohane's mother splashes hot water on him after he temporarily blacked out.

Syaoran--In chapter 140,the RealSyaoran tells Watanuki 'not to disappear' when he blacks out;and in chapter 168 of TRC,Syaoran tells Watanuki that the two of them are closer than anyone else..

I am longing to know the connection between the two of them...
