It was revealed on Friday that Clamp's xxxHOLiC manga series will be adapted as a live-action television program to be broadcast on Japan's WOWOW premium television station in 2013. The actress and model Anne will play the role of Yuuko, while Shōta Sometani will play the character Watanuki. The series will be directed by Keisuke Toyoshima.
xxxHOLiC was originally published in Kodansha's Young Magazine and Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine from 2003 to 2011, and 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.
