    xxxHolic

    I've only read one Manga--which was bought for a friend's birthday--but I've seen the first four episodes as of today. I think this anime is very interesting. I like how it kinda dwells on the concept of fate/inevitability and how everything has it's purpose. It also speaks on actions and thier consequences.

    I like the style of drawing they used for the character design (good work, CLAMP) and it makes me smile to see so many references to thier previous works in this series. In episode three or four, the book the two girls are reading (I'm terrible with names today), called "The City with no People" is from Chobits and is read by Chi. Also, in episode four you get to see a set of Persocom ears from Chobits. I hear there are more references to come and that in the manga, it crosses over with most of it's work.

    Does anybody like this at all? What do you think of it?



    For those of you who don't know about this anime:

    Ahhh!!! xxxHolic!!!!!!!!!! I wouldn't believe that no one knows this anime. There were even people in a latvian forum who knew this one ^^

    I find this a great anime!!! It's funny, mystica, made me cry at points, made me learn a lot about how people should live their life etc, it had love in it, but not too much of it- didn't make me feel sick, and it had great friendship in it, and also teached about the secret powers a person can hold in himself... Ummm yea... lots of bla bla...

    Well but I thought though that the anime was quite... unfinished... the last episode was great. But I want so much more...

    *Laughs* ^^ I love the anime.

    I love the designs (how they drew basically), the comedy in it, made by CLAMP!!!! (They do an awesome job), The plot of this story, and so on so on!

    My fav character and the one I always feel sorry for Kimihiro Watanuki. ^^ He's awesome. And I can tell seeing spirits sometimes SUCKS! (I kid! I kid! ^^)

    And i always so love Yūko Ichihara. I think she's beautiful, what she does is AWESOME (Thats she can grant wishes), her treasures.... hehehee...., and her attitude! ^^

    I think that's the main reason I watch/read xxxHolic, is just because it connects all of CLAMP's works. I know in the manga you see a lot more stuff from previous works than you do in the anime.

    I'm still tryin' to decide which of CLAMP's works is my favorite, and ever since I started watchin' xxxHolic, I think that I may have found a winner. ^_^ Although I still have yet to check out Tsubasa. Maybe next week...

    I have read seven volumes and really like it. Not only does it have themes common to CLAMP works (as well as cross-overs from other CLAMP books), the story is new and different. It just gets better with each better with each book.
