posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 26th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine is revealing on Monday that CLAMP's xxxHOLiC: Rei manga will go on a one-month break, and it will return in the 31st issue, which ships on June 29.
After a magazine release delay, the series launched in the magazine in March 2013. Kodansha released the second compiled book volume with the xxxHOLiC: Rō and xxxHOLiC: Rō Adayume original anime videos last April, and the third volume shipped in Japan in August. Kodansha Comics released the second volume in North America in November, and the third volume shipped on April 28.
xxxHOLiC: Rei is the latest manga in CLAMP's dark fantasy series xxxHOLiC. 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 various xxxHOLiC series have a total of 13.7 million copies in circulation.
The original manga's 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.
