Zashiki Warashi trapped in a cage is our title page. This is a heavy Watanuki-Doumeki dialog chapter.

14 pages for this chapter — 98 pages so far for volume 4. I can’t tell when the next chapter will be published because the Chinese scanlations don’t say so, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it would be only in November. CLAMP have already stated on their radio show that XXXHOLiC Rei is going out monthly despite the fact that it’s running in a weekly magazine. Update: The next chapter will be published on November 2.

That’s a nice TWC link there, it sort of answers a few questions I guess.

14 pages this time around — 70 pages so far for volume 4. The series will be going into yet another one-month break, next chapter will come out on September 7. Yes. you read it right, another one-month break. I wonder if something needs to happen in TWC for XXXHOLiC Rei move weekly, at least…?

Maru and Moro’s clothes are so cute in this chapter! Wait… Is that… a new client?! She looks like that mermaid from a previous arc, or maybe it’s really her? Her dress looks mermaid-like, and she’s carrying the Shamisen too, so it’s probably her.

12 pages for this chapter — 44 pages so far for volume 4.

XXXHOLiC Rei will be going into a one-month break, next chapter will come out on June 29th. My guess is that they are planning a joint release of XXXHOLiC Rei #4 and Tsubasa – WoRLD CHRoNiCLE – #2 around September/October.

On other news, Tsubasa will feature the front cover of the July issue of Shonen Magazine SPECIAL, out on June 20th, where chapter 10 will be published. The chapter will have color page(s) and a special service to get an exclusive set of 6 cork coasters is planned as well.

The story takes up from where it was just before the hiatus.

18 pages for this chapter. This was a double issue of Young Magazine so that means next week there will be no magazine and thus, the next XXXHOLiC Rei chapter will be only on May 11.

Chinese scans are available here (thanks to Jacob Collado for letting me know ;).

Japanese RAWs available here (NEW LINK thanks to !). I couldn't download the file, though. It is terribly slow and it stopped halfway through. If someone manages to do it, feel free to upload somewhere and let me know.

More XXXHOLiC news

The official website for the XXXHOLiC TV Drama has been renewed with a few new pictures, new comments from CLAMP and two video teasers. Unfortunately, the videos are not available if you're outside the Japanese territory.

Still, make sure to check out the new site! Was anyone able to watch the videos yet?

Here's a summary of the new comments from CLAMP (*spoilers ahead*):

– They haven't made any special requests for this adaptation. They left everything in charge of the director and the staff.
– Their favorite scenes upon reading the script were the beginning, when Watanuki meets Yuuko, and the ending.
– They confirm the absence of Mokona in this adaptation, and recognize that it would be difficult to have it as a plush toy or CG, even though they would really like to see Mokona in a live action.
– In the case of the TV drama becoming a regular series, they would like to see more of Anne's performance and Watanuki as the shop's owner in "Rou".

So there is the chance of having more than the 8 episodes planned for this series. Let's hope it'll be successful enough for that to happen! It's a shame that CLAMP's involvement was practically nil this time… but it's understandable since this is a completely new field for them. Let's hope they did a good job!

For those interested about the thematic XXXHOLiC Cafe, its special menu has been revealed at the cafe's hotsite, it looks very tasty.

The poster below announces the beginning of the XXXHOLiC Rei serialization for Young Magazine #14, to be released on March 4. The return was scheduled for February, but it was probably delayed to March due to the incident regarding Young Magazine and a picture of AKB48 idol (read more about it here).

Also, the XXXHOLiC artbook release has been pushed back to the end of March, this time it seems to be definitive. The artbook title will be XXXHOLiC Kochou no Yume (Butterfly's Dream).
