If Yuko is not involved heavily or if this is just more Watanuki . I think I'll pass;since after she was gone the series just seemed to lose it 's focus.

This is one piece of good news. The way they had just cut off the previous installment was quite irritating. I look forward to seeing a proper ending for this story. ...though I hope they insert this before the timeskip at the end of Ro rather than continue from there - Doumeki and Kohane are my favorite characters.

I honestly give up on trying to keep up with CLAMP haha.

I'm just gonna pray that Kodansha USA licenses this at some point in the not too distant future. I find myself missing that Watanuki Anime hyper

Interesting. I do wonder how it's going to work though, since the last volume pretty much revealed how everyone ended up. The only two questions left up in the air were spoiler[who Domeki and Himawari's spouses were. I have a feeling Domeki probably married Kohane since she's presumably the only woman besides Himawari who would have put up with the status quo of being married to a husband who liked but wasn't in love with her to give Watanuki a family who would stand by him through the centuries. More problematic is who Himawari could possibly have married, since she apparently didn't marry Domeki and to put it bluntly it seemed likely that he was the only person she would probably ever meet with whom she could even have sex, since his chi would probably offset her curse.]

It could just be a short series about Watanuki's cases.

The Adayume OVA confirmed that Domeki spoiler[was going to marry Kohane even though she loved Watanuki.] By the way, will there be an explanation about where did exactly Watanuki came from? In Tsubasa we learned only few bits about him but we never learned about spoiler[his true name or his relation with Clow Reed.]

I *think* that was explained in the original series spoiler[that he was supposed to replace the version of Shaoran from their world and, I'm guessing here, since he remembered less and less about his past as the story went on, I think that everything the Tsubasa gang was doing ended up having repercussions on his past and making it all really confusing]
Augh, and talks like this remind me of just how sad the ending to this series was, not because it was a sad one but because it started out good and just faded away as it went on, don't think I'll be trying out this new series unless it's really really good (also, Clamp why are you doing three series at once again?!?)

Indeed. KUSA licenses it, I will buy.

I'm also curious why CLAMP is trying to do three manga now, considering they just recently took a break due to health issues, if I remember correctly.

But I also can't say I'm not excited about this. I love xxxHolic, even despite the ending, so more is always welcomed in my book. But I'm curious of where this is going to go. spoiler[Perhaps exploring things between the time skip? Or I believe Watanuki is able to leave the shop after he met Yuuko, perhaps adventures of his life as the shopkeeper outside of the shop? Short stories involving the characters would be cool too, something short and simple for CLAMP to do I'd like to think, and would be something extra to add to our collections.]

I hope not. I'd much rather have Dark Horse do it considering how nice their other CLAMP books have been.

Ditto. We've been left out forever on this, heh. I'm fine with whoever they kill off to end it, if they would just end it.

I was, honestly, satisfied with xxxHolic as it was.

I'm all for more Holic, though I think it is a bit unecessary. The ending was abrupt, sure, but it featured a genuinely surprising twist that I have to applaud Clamp for.

...I think CLAMP is just messing with us now.

That being said, I am 100% reading this. xD
