The presepe community site reports that the limited edition of CLAMP's 14th xxxHOLiC manga volume — the one that includes an original animation DVD — will be delayed until February 17. The 25-minute anime DVD features director Tsutomu Mizushima (XXXHOLiC, xxxHOLiC: Kei, xxxHOLiC the Movie: A Midsummer Night's Dream), CLAMP's scriptwriter Nanase Ohkawa, the animators at Production I.G, and the original voice cast. There is another anime DVD planned for CLAMP's Tsubasa manga. The Tsubasa manga/DVD bundle was originally scheduled for February, and no changes have been announced for its release.
In related news, the Ayakashi Kenkyūkai, the production committee behind the xxxHOLiC: Kei anime series, has apologized on Friday for a drama CD script that excerpted two sketches from the sketch comedy group Rahmens without prior acknowledgement. Yoshiki Sakurai is credited with the script for the Engawa drama CD that was bundled with the second xxxHOLiC: Kei DVD's limited edition on July 23. The committee apologized to the Rahmens, their agency Twinkle Corporation, CLAMP, and all fans of the Rahmens, the xxxHOLiC series, and CLAMP. The excerpts are to be henceforth acknowledged with the following line:
Excerpted from: "Iroiro Man," "Kanabe" (from the Rahmens' 14th performance, Study).
Update: Mainichi Shimbun's Mantan Web reports on Saturday that the Tsubasa original anime DVD, which was scheduled to ship in February with the limited edition of the 26th manga volume, will now ship in March.
