The first series of the XXXHOLiC TV Anime (the one that aired during April-October, 2006) will be re-released in two DVD Boxes, according to CDJournal.
The first box will be released on July 14, entitled “XXXHOLiC DVD BOX 上” (XXXHOLiC DVD Box Top). It will have episodes 1 to 12.
The box will feature a new illustration drawn by CLAMP and it also comes with a special booklet.
The release is expected to be followed by a second box, “XXXHOLiC DVD BOX 下” (XXXHOLiC DVD Box Bottom), containing episodes 13 to 24.
These boxes will be offered by a much cheaper price. The first one will cost 15,750 yens. In comparison, the 8 original DVDs of the first XXXHOLiC series cost 50,400 yens. And apparently Amazon.jp is offering it for only 3,694 yens (77% off)! Although that page looks a little weird…
Yay for the Box drawn by CLAMP! =D
On other XXXHOLiC news, volume 17 was released today (along with the OAD of XXXHOLiC Rou) and the obi-strip that came with it revealed that the XXXHOLiC series broke the mark of 11 million copies sold! Congratulations to XXXHOLiC! It is right now the 4th CLAMP best seller, only behind Tsubasa (20 million), Card Captor Sakura and X (12 million each). But something tells me that XXXHOLiC is on its way to 2nd place =)
The link to download the OAD will be posted here as soon as it becomes available! Stay tuned!
I heard Himawari got married! O.O Well, years ago Ohkawa did hint that she had/would-have a boyfriend during a XXXHOLiC event (reports say that she was apparently drunk enough to reveal that carelessly).
