XXXHOLiC Drama CD

From the next Young Magazine issue, which will be out tomorrow in Japan, comes a very exciting XXXHOLiC announcement!

XXXHOLiC #13 will be released on June 23rd and there will be a special limited edition with a Drama CD.

There will be two versions, one with script written by Ryukishi07 and another written by CLAMP’s Nanase Ohkawa. The CD will also come with a mini after-recording script book. The price of this limited version will be 2660 yens.

I still don’t know if both versions, Ryukishi07’s and Ohkawa’s, will come in a single CD or if they’ll come separated, I guess it’s the latter.

Ryukishi07 is the author of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, his first public collaboration with Ohkawa was in an interview they both did for Chara☆Mel magazine in September, 2007 (refresh your memory here).

This is very nice news, this will surely boost even more the sales of XXXHOLiC #13 (what’s with the anime coming, even more then). And this partnership between Ohkawa and Ryukishi07 is very juicy, I’m sure this idea was born during that interview for Chara☆Mel, which is why I think when we’re dealing with CLAMP, every sort of collaboration, as simple as it might look, should be seen as a foreshadowing information. Even if it’s only, for example, an innocent comment on the obi of Youkai no Oisha-san #4 (refresh your memory here). Who knows what kind of collaboration might be born out of this? xD

Another interesting thing that should be noticed is their names. Ryukishi07, or Ryukishi Zero Nana, and Nanase Ohkawa. Hummm.

Could this be part of the “big project” Takuya Matsushita mentioned in his Column last month?

EDIT: This is an advertising that came with Tsubasa #23 about the Drama CD:

The caption says “Collaboration”? No problem, this is a single “event”.

    USO DA!!!!!!

    Anyway, I’ll really enjoy if Watanuki suffers the Hinamizawa syndrome on this drama and kills everyone with a black ladle, then going to a different dimension 2 weeks before Watanagashi.

    I’m really looking forward to this drama! Seems it’ll be really good!

      LOL! I wouldn’t be surprised if Ryukishi07’s version turns out to be like that, LOL! I wonder if Ohkawa will allow such a thing XD

  3. I’m really glad about the CD drama involving XXXHolic, this is definitely something to look forward to!!
    But I confess I still hope the ‘big surprise’ will be something else aha~

  4. lol! Tsubasa and xxxHolic’s limited edition’s extra really makes the Chobits series’ ones look cheap and borring! XD

    I don’t think it’s part of the big projet announced by Takuya Matsushita, the way he word it back then seem to imply it will be a colabo project. Or maybe it’s part of it, but not the whole thing from the xxxHolic side.

    So I would say it’s about the water jugs episode which make little sense without the Tsubasa part and may not appear in the TV anime. Plus maybe the fall from school window and the role Syaoran play in Watanuki’s rescue. These parts belong with the Tokyo Revelations arc and should be dealth with before they make a colabo OAD series for the next arcs.

    Do you think there is still more to come regarding Takuya Matshushita’s post? I’ve had this really excited feeling ever since I heard about it, but now it’s dying down because it’s been so long… Do you suppose it would take this long for something ‘big’ so to say, to be announced? Or perhaps it’s nothing big and I just misunderstood due to my excitement…

    What do you think? Think there’s still hope for something bigger?
