Ohkawa in XXXHOLiC’s Staff !

YES !!! Ohkawa is in the Staff for the XXXHOLiC Anime under the charge of “Series composition” (same as CCS and MKR). We can surely expect a VERY faithful anime adaptation, since everything will be approved by her ^_~ Not to mention that the chances of her writting scripts (and maybe songs too) are large. Here’s the whole staff:

XXXHOLiC – TV Series
Director: Tsutomu Mizushima
Series Composition: Michiko Yokote and Ageha Ohkawa
Character Design: Kise Kazuchika
Accessory Designs: Minoru Ueda
Director of Art: Kogura Hiroaki
Color Settings: Hirose Idumi
Director of Photography: Yasuhira Konishi
Music Director: Kazuhiro Wakabayashi
Editing: Taeko Hamautsu
Animation Production: Production I.G

We can also expect the anime to be very like the movie adaptation, since the staff is pretty much the same (Director, Chara Designer, Accessory Designer, Music Director, Editing among others).

I’m VERY glad already ! Just to know Ohkawa is in it makes me love this anime without even seeing it xD

  2. I’m sure Infinity’s rank will go up once more people get their copies and tell their friends. I received mine the other and absolutely think it’s worth purchasing – and soon. *.*

    • Yuuko’s design seems like it’ll be fairly reminiscent of the movie’s art style. The character designer was also carried over from the movie.

      It’s great to hear that Ohkawa will be working on the series! I can breath a sigh of relief in knowing that we’re not going to get a less-than-stellar adaptation like Tsubasa Chronicle.

      • Yep, you’re right, in TC anime, Yuuko was too “light”, but in the holic movie, she was too “hard” (even more than the scary CLAMP faces ^^UU).
        And even more, maybe Tsubasa anime will improve because the “competency” and to have a better link with XXXHOLiC.

  3. [Ohkawa is in the Staff for the XXXHOLiC Anime under the charge of “Series composition” (same as CCS and MKR). We can surely expect a VERY faithful anime adaptation, since everything will be approved by her]

    –not quite..even though she was on staff for CCS and MKR, major plot points in both CCS and MKR were drastically changed including essential ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of the story. the most we can hope is that the essence of the manga and most of the episodic stories of the manga is preserved in the anime. But, considering their body of work, it seems that clamp deliberately changes the ending of the anime story so it is a seperate entity from the manga.

    ..but as long as it’s made well, i’ll enjoy it either way.

      That’s exactly what I meant ^_~ And to know that everything that’s in there has Ohkawa’s bow and approvement is enough for me.

      >it seems that clamp deliberately changes the ending of the anime story so it is a seperate entity from the manga.

      Yeah I think that makes them unique from each other, and more interesting too. But is better to have someone from CLAMP doing the changes than someone outside CLAMP ^^

  6. Oh, de nada! (You’re welcome!) ^^

    It’s always great to have up-to-date CLAMP news, to discuss a bit the issues involving upcoming CLAMP works (or CLAMP-related) and other interesting topics (HP, for example) 😛

    I think you’ll eventually get a lot more friends!

    BTW, lastly the DVDs are going to come out! YAY! >_
