Just like Tsubasa Shunraiki, there was a press conference for XXXHOLiC Shunmuki with the cast and producer Kawaguchi Tohru, of PRODUCTION IG.
The interview can be read at Presepe.
A few highlights I was able to translate:
– Since there won’t be broadcast restrictions, the adaptation will be more faithful to the manga (links with Tsubasa).
– The cast heard the OAD news not from the production crew, but from CLAMP members themselves.
– By the time the press release was made, only the script for the first episode was done, and the story was centered on XXXHOLiC #14. The second episode’s script is still being written by Nanase Ohkawa (from what I could understand) and the content is completely unknown by the producer. But he says that’s when the links with Tsubasa will happen.
– In their meetings with Nanase Ohkawa, her main concern was with the links between XXXHOLiC and Tsubasa.
– Lastly, but I am not totally sure of this, the producer said that a continuation beyond these two OADs is possible? (今回OADが2本なんですが、これが終わった後も続けていければなと思っております。) If someone could confirm me this, I’d appreciate it ^^
I was very surprised to learn that the scripts aren’t done yet xD
