The premium channel WOWOW updated its official website for the live-action xxxHOLiC television program with a photograph of the two main leads in costume. The actress and model Anne will play the role of Yuuko from CLAMP's original manga, while Shōta Sometani will play the character Watanuki. Masahiro Higashide, Karen Miyazaki, Naoto Takenaka, and Yumi Adachi will also star in the show.
Keisuke Toyoshima will direct off scripts written by Jun Tsugita. The manga tells the story of Yuuko, a witch who grants people's wishes, but in return the person has to give up something precious, and Watanuki Kimihiro, a man who has visions. One day, Watanuki encounters Yuuko and she promises to get rid of the spirits that torment him. In return Watanuki must work in Yuuko's shop and help her grant other people's wishes.
The eight-episode series will premiere on February 24.
