XXXHOLiC TV Drama news (Updated)

The official website for the XXXHOLiC TV Drama was updated with more information and additional cast members.

The site's background illustration now shows a first look at the inside of Yuuko's shop (it looks great!). You can check out the image here.

Actors Naoto Takenaka and Yumi Adachi. Yumi Adachi will play the role of Spider Lady (Jorogumo), and although I don't have official information on Naoto Takenaka, I am inclined to believe he will play Haruka Doumeki.

Personally, I'm happy about Naoto Takenaka, I really liked his work in Nodame Cantabile. Yumi Adachi seems like a perfect choice for Spider Lady as well. So it looks like the show in a total of 8 episodes will go as far into the story as the Spider Lady arc, which is nice!

There are some changes in the staff list, too. Before, Jun Tsugita and Keisuke Toyoshima were both listed as directors and scriptwriters. Now, Jun Tsugita is listed as scriptwriter alone and Keisuke Toyoshima as the only director.

Last but not least, the show's start date has been announced: February 24, a Sunday.

Update: Check out the first official promotional image of the cast!

  1. Takenaka-san will be Haruka?…I Hope so! He makes me LOL so hard in Nodame so I’m more than happy for the choice. I’m sure he can make a wonderful Haruka.
    Yuuko’s shop looks great and Watanuki and Yuuko seems ok too. I’m a bit sad that Watanuki’s uniform is not like in the manga (It has bottons if I remember right) but I know that is just a minor detail XD
    Oh and Yuuko dress, on the contrary, is amaizing *__*

    Just hope for the best for this drama ^_^ and for next manga serie too. i can’t wait *_*


    • Watanuki’s uniform looks a bit off indeed, it makes him look a bit chubby. I don’t know why they decided to make it like this instead of more fit.

      Yuuko on the other hand, looks fantastic!


  2. Hey, it’s cam again! I couldn’t help but notice that you forgot the opening bracket < on the dates script at the top of the page (24th february). On another note, I'm sooo excited about holic rei and live action drama! XD
