New Live-Action 'xxxHOLiC' TV Series Announced

It's been announced that CLAMP's hit manga series xxxHOLiC will be adapted into a live-action TV series. The TV series will be broadcasted on Japan's WOWOW station in early 2013.

Model and actress Anne will be playing the role of the witch Yuuko, with Shota Sometani to play Watanuki. Keisuki Toyoshima will be directing the series.

xxxHOLiC follows the story of Kimihiro Watanuki, a high-school student who possesses the ability to see the supernatural. After being chased by one of these creatures, he finds himself in Yuuko Ichihara's shop, one that can grant wishes. When he requests to have his ability to see spirits removed, Yuuko has him work for her as payment.

The original series ran from 2003 to 2011 in Young Magazine and Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine. Del Rey Manga released the manga in North America.

    Well, at first I frowned too, but seeing as xxxHolic has simple scenarios and doesn't require many special effects, if the acting is good, I guess it may be a good adaptation. I can't wait for it ^^

    At first I frowned. A live-action adaptation? Well... If it is done well, why not? I think it's good if you have the courage to do something like that. After all, the fans of the Anime or Manga have a decent idea. It will therefore be difficult to access these all are. I will have a definite view ^^ Am curious xD

    I'm curious, but at the same time is this a good idea? Seems many manga/anime aren't well received when turned into a live action series. I haven't watched any myself yet, what is everyone's opinion? (For this, or in general)

  • Posted by gomaberry · 10,524 Jpops · 12 shares · 3 years ago  

    Can't wait to check it out!

  • Posted by Nancybug · 62 Jpops · 2 shares · 3 years ago  

    Awww...How can I watch this? Anyone know a website or something? I know it's not out yet, but I loved the manga and anime...

    I'm assuming it'll be on a drama streaming site like epdrama or dramacrazy?
