During the time I was away a lot of good scans showed up on the internet (all scanned by You-Know-Who ^_~). I thought I should gather them all here in case you’ve missed some.
I slightly edited them, you know, increased the colors, stuff like that. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge (all on their original sizes).
These were all, and ALL, and absolutely A-L-L scanned by Alison (ladydarkmoon). Yeah, she deserves all that and a bit more ^^
She also gave me the permission to host the XXXHOLiC Official Guide scans at The Room of Requirement. I cleaned them up very superficially, but the image size remained the same. The result was a very friendly 62 MB file divided in 4 parts ^__^
Deep, deep thanks to Alison-chan *glomps* ^_____^
Overall I really liked the guide ! It has all the little tidbits and details only fans can notice. The fact that it covers until vol. 6 adds a layer to my 12-vols theory. 12 vols, 2 guides… but it could be 18 vols and 3 guides, too O.o
Anyway, my favorite part was definitely the sketches at the end, and the storyboard OF COURSE *___* I was really surprised with the sketches… they look nothing at all like the actual art, specially Yuuko (they all seem much more childish). One of the best things was being able to see the splash pages text-less (they look even prettier than I thought they already were).
EDIT 2: The scans mentioned above were taken off as requested by their original scanner. I’ll post here as soon as I find a more, say, lawful file available ^^”
