×××Holic, a Seinen manga written and illustrated by the group of manga authors known as Clamp from 2003 through 2011. The series revolves around Kimihiro Watanuki, a high-school student with the supernatural ability to see spirits and other occult phenomenon. One day he meets Yūko Ichihara, a witch who just happens to own a wish-granting shop who agrees to remove his ability to see spirits in return for his assistance at the shop.

In 2005, Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell) adapted the manga into an animated film, which was followed by two anime TV series, and various original video animations (OVAs). Funimation licensed the film and the first TV series in North America, and released both of them in DVD as well as Blu-ray Disc.


Here's a taste of television from the Far East. Below is a trailer for the live-action adaptation of the beloved manga xxxHOLiC set for an 8-episode season next week on Japan's WOWOW premium television station.

I have neither read the source manga or seen the anime...but that looks silly. But hey, because it doesn't have anybody who's not Japanese, everybody will be all over it. Pretty Racist if you ask me.
