Plot

Kimihiro Watanuki, a high school student with the ability to see supernatural monsters (youkai) and they, the supernatural monsters, are attracted to him makes him feel irritated and extremely burdened by them. One day, he stumbles into a shop that grants wishes. From there on his life changes drastically when he meet the shop owner Yuko Ichihara who is a witch with many names. She then offers to grant Watanuki's wish to be rid of his burdened ability to see spirits. However, Watanuki must first pay a price equivalent to the power required to grant his wish. So since that day he starts to work for Yuko by performing housework and odd jobs until he has done enough to pay for his wish.

Audio and Visuals

The visuals are not bad. The animation is really nice. The audio is good too but I have never tried it with the English dub before. As for the sound, yeah it is good.

Syaoran and the Tsubasa Chronicle Gang

Since the plot of the anime Tsubasa Chronicles and XxXHolic are intertwined, the characters like Sakura, Syaoran and the Tsubasa Chronicle gang will appear as well... heck even Mokona is considered a character from Tsubasa Chronicle. I like it how they made the plot intertwined like this. Fans of Tsubasa Chronicles are surely wont want to miss this anime ^^.

Final Thoughts

The intertwined plots with another anime really make this anime interesting. It's like making both anime alive and in connection with each other.

Other than that, remember the book that Chi from Chobits used to read? Yeah the blue book. That book is Maru and Moro's favourite book. So they even connected Chobits into this anime~!

This anime has a really interesting plot and storyline so it's an anime you don't want to miss. It's hilarious too. Mokona, Watanuki and Yuko always brighten up XxXHolic. ^^

      Pros: the great humor
      Cons: none I love clamp
      It's a beutifull anime! If you like a litle bit strange but interesting mysteries, then this' is an anime for you.
      The combination of japanies legends and interesting characters is thrilling. Every episode has some facts from Japanese life and superstition. The main charectars each represent an individual and great persone.
      Yuko is just super. She is the most supernatural but also the most average woman. The way she jumps from fake to serious conversations is amaising!
      Music in the anime is pleasing right into your ears and stays there for days.
      A job well done from CLAMP!

      I finished the first series. I am (eagerly) waiting for the second season.
      I found this series very interesting, so much so that I think I'll submit my own review of it! try to check it out!
