Here is an updated list with the upcoming XXXHOLiC◆Kei episodes, two of them scripted by Nanase Ohkawa, taken from this month’s anime magazines.
Itens in bold represent new additions.

|6||Peace||Taishirou Tanimura||Yukina Hiiro||Tomoji Hatake||Mahjong||May 8|
The final episode of the Spider Lady arc shall be pretty. Kazuchika Kise is behind the animation director, he was under the same charge in XXXHOLiC’s movie. Plus, he’s the series’ character designer. Fair enough, Spider Lady is definitely one of the most loved arcs to many fans (including myself), which makes me wonder why Ohkawa didn’t write any episodes for it.
Speaking of her, her episodes are finally announced, great. Two in a row, Yumekai and the one where Watanuki and Kohane first meet. At least I think she enjoyed herself writing the street pole scene xD ***anime spoilers***Is this the episode where Rikuou and Kazahaya appears, if any?***anime spoilers*** I just hope her episodes will look pretty xD
We have a new script-writer here too, who hasn’t written any episodes for Season 1. I also hope Ohkawa will write
all the remaining episodes more episodes.
