Here is the cover of XXXHOLiC #17, taken from today’s update of CLAMP-NET.COM:

XXXHOLiC #17 will be released along with the OAD limited edition on April 23.

To both celebrate and promote the moving of XXXHOLiC to Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, there will be some special chapters to be published in Kodansha’s shonen magazines.

On May 19, there will be a XXXHOLiC oneshot published in Weekly Shonen Magazine #25.
On May 20, there will be a new Holitsuba story published in Magazine SPECIAL.
And finally on June 9, the beginning of XXXHOLiC’s new serialiation in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, with color pages and XXXHOLiC featuring the magazine’s cover.

For all 3 magazines listed above, there is going to be a QUO-Card service featuring a CLAMP illustration published in it.

This is Kodansha’s strategy to promote the moving of XXXHOLiC, at least now we know we won’t be so XXXHOLiC-less until the serialization restarts.

  1. What do you think of the cover? I don’t think Yuuko will be on the back of it this time, since there’s a butterfly on the front…but i could be wrong

    Also YAY Holitsuba! I didn’t think we’d get another chapter!


  2. Well, so we haven’t got to wait until June, that’s sure a good thing… I wonder how many pages per month are we gonna have.
    Do you know where can I find Yumeragi novel in english? (on internet, of course xD)


    • Off the top of my head I don’t, I used to have it saved on my computer, but I think I might have lost it on my last HD crash (I believe it’s reparable, but that takes some time, which I don’t have at the moment =/)

      I will try to ask for it on my twitter and see if someone has it πŸ˜‰ I would like to have it myself (I have only the japanese version safe and sound in one of my CDs XD)


  3. Since they are monthly releases, I believe both the shonen magazine SP and the Bessatsu Shonen Magazine should be available…I’ll try buying them both if they are listed in, I already found out both their official websites and names in japanes characters πŸ˜€

    The QUO cards are those pre-paid debit card used in japan stores, right? It might be interesting to see what Clamp come up with…that said, did they specify the 3 illustrations will be NEW ones or not…?


    • Yeah, you can use the QUO cards in convenience stores, bookstores, etc =)

      As for the illustrations, I’m pretty sure it will feature illustrations from the chapters themselves (therefore, not new).


    • Now that I think about it, I’m not too sure if the Shonen Magazine oneshot and the Holitsuba story will have color pages, so maybe CLAMP will draw new illustrations for the QUO Cards.

      CLAMP-NET.COM does mention new illustrations for them, but they could also be on their respective chapters, so… we’ll see ^^


    • Anyway, just how long is CLAMP planning to continue with xxxHOLiC? I though vol 17 would be the last one :/

      Well, it doesn’t look like they are planning to end it anytime soon.
