The information whether Kobato. will be published in the April issue of Newtype is missing in CLAMP-NET.COM (hence the “?”). I will update the post later when they fix it.

• DVD:

The blog of the official Kobato. TV Anime website revealed the Box drawn by CLAMP that will be given to those who purchase the limited edition of Kobato. DVD volume 1 in January 29:

Thanks lovelessinma for the heads up! =D

Beautiful illustration, isn’t it? *-* The theme is clearly Spring and Summer, so the next box’s theme will probably be Autumn and Winter ^_~

• OAD:

The official website of the XXXHOLiC OAD updated its Special section to include the story and character designs. Yes girls (and boys too, why not?) you can see Doumeki in his suit xD

Was I the only one who thought it was a little weird to see Watanuki wearing that classic Yuuko kimono of flowers? XD

  1. Thank you for the info as always! I hope there’s Kobato in April, otherwise it’ll mean two months waiting for a 14 pages chapter OTL

    Uu… Lately Holic gives me the feeling that Kohane is replacing Himawari. Not in the sense of “Watanuki’s love interest” (I don’t think he loves her that way at all), but on the friendship side… It used to be Watanuki, Doumeki and Himawari, now the people in Watanuki’d life seem to be Doumeki and Kohane…


  2. The box is preeeety(but i have refrained from watching Kobato until the last episode airs).I wasn’t shocked about Watanuki wearing Yuko’s kimono in the first episode of Kei he wore an Alice in Woderland outfit!I’d prefer Doumeki’s suit to be darker(don’t look at me like that Clamp males should always wear black suits!)and Kohane seems a little too old but i’l wait and see!

      • He’s showing a lot of chest in the red kimono (boobieless Watanuki can’t fill it) and legs :S (I hope his leg isn’t hairy xD). Also the purple yukata looks very, very girly (specially that pastel purple).

        He has also wore a girl japanese clothing in the manga ( i think it was a furisode, with a ribbon. And that didn’t look like Yuuko’s previous clothing. Makes me wonder what kind of crossdressing, girly, fanservice clothes Yuuko left for him….

        I prefer the one he wore in the latest chapter, I loved that scarf he wore. Spider lady loved it too.


  4. My dear Kimihiro-kun…you just don’t fill out that kimono like Yuuko does!

    I like Doumeki’s ‘lounging about Watanuki’s shop’ outfit! And Kohane-chan looks sooooooo pretty!

    Oh, I want that Kobato. box! I may just buy the DVDs, since the anime makes me feel warm and fuzzy. But it’s a shame most of the bonus goodies you have to send for or buy from a specific place.

    Anyway, I hope Kobato. doesn’t have a break in April. They’ve been pretty consistent since the anime was announced and it’s already too few and far inbetween! And it’s nice to see HOLiC a little more stable.


  5. Yuuto-san, Syaoran here. I’m just lazy to login and I can’t find you right now, so there it goes. XD

    Isn’t there any confirmations on which will be the OP & ED yet? I mean, if it’ll still be “sofa” and “CHERISH” or if there’s something new.


  6. Beautiful work as always with CLAMP’s illustrations for the Kobato DVD box! I wish I could say the same for Watanuki’s pale, scrawny legs sticking out of Yuuko’s kimono. :/


  7. Hey! I made a pic comparing sizes of Watanuki, Doumeki and Kohane =D I used the head of each char to make sure the characters were “sized equally”.

    Doumeki is freaking huge and Kohane is as lovely as ever!


  8. OMG! yuuko will be angry with watanuki when she come back, but really watanuki should not use her clothes, he looks so little with those and girly o_O then again she looked great but he DOES NOT.


  9. Oh, I love the box set, but it’s so much cheaper and easier to wait for DVDs to come out in North America, especially since I can take all subs off and watch the Japanese dub pure.
    When you understand Japanese, English sub vs. dub wars are all in the past~

    And wow, who knew Shuichirou-san would be in the xxxHOLiC OAD? XD jk
    Doumeki’s just too formal here.
