XXXHOLiC #13 is out today in Japan and thereby the Original Drama CD is out as well.
The script was written in a never before done collaboration between Nanase Ohkawa and Ryuukishi07, the story of the Drama CD slightly crosses over with Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Yuuko receives a call from Rika of Higurashi).
Someone uploaded the Drama CD to NicoNico and I managed to rip and make an MP3 of it, which can be downloaded after the cut.
XXXHOLiC Original Drama CD (right click -> Save Target As…)
Size: 50 MB.
File type: MP3 – 128 Kbps.
Running time: 55 minutes.
I thought there would be two versions? But it seems like they sort of did a collaboration and wrote together? Or there’s one more track? Don’t think so, though…
This was long! I’m sure that if I knew japanese enough to understand it, listening to it would be much better (I barely understood the general idea). Himawari’s story was looong xD They can only do this kind of thing in a Drama CD. But I think it was very monotonous, I don’t know, what I like about Drama CDs are the sound effects, and this one lacked in those.
I hope someone will get hold of the script book and be courageous enough to translate it.
This version was ripped from Nico Nico so it’s not top-quality, but it’s still quite good. I might change the file later for a proper, higher-quality version if someone else rips it and gives me the permission to do it =)
Oh my god, I liked Fonogenico’s song! xD Now THAT’s a surprise!
EDIT: For those who downloaded the file before reading this message, there was a typo in the file name, it’s Shiminuki, not Shiminiku.
Please fix it if you already downloaded. I apologize for the mistake *bows*
The file name has been corrected in my server now.
EDIT 2: You can read a summary of the Drama CD plot here.
