posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The second volume of CLAMP's XXXHOLiC: Rei sequel manga is announcing on Wednesday that the manga's third volume, which will ship on August 20, will have a limited edition that will bundle an original "audio drama." CLAMP member Nanase Ohkawa will write the script for the drama.
The second volume is also announcing that the original xxxHOLiC manga has 12.7 million copies in print.
The manga's second volume is shipping a special Blu-ray Disc edition bundle that will contain the xxxHOLiC: Rō and xxxHOLiC: Rō Adayume original anime videos released with the original xxxHOLiC manga in 2009.
CLAMP serialized the original xxxHOLiC manga in Weekly Young Magazine and Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine from 2003 to 2011, although it was renamed xxxHOLiC: Rō in 2009. The story follows 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.
Del Rey published the original 19-volume manga in North America. Funimation released first television anime adaptation and Production I.G's xxxHOLiC the Movie: A Midsummer Night's Dream in North America.
