‘XXX Holic’: Will Yuuko, Kimihiro Watanuki officially return?

XXX Holic

Clamp fans have a reason to celebrate as their favorite Yuuko and Kimihiro Watanuki may return with the rumored comeback of XXX Holic.

It remains to be seen on what medium the series will return, but rumors have it that it may be in the form of a manga. Though the series is still living on its own fame, there is a big chance that the original XXX Holic maybe once again seen.

The Fan-Favorite Series’ Possible Return

Twitter user MangaMoguraRE shared the news that shook the manga world to its very core.

“The continuation of XXX Holic by CLAMP is in the works,” it read, along with the protagonists’ snap.

“CLAMP is asking readers for a bit more patience,” it continued.

As expected, the announcement surprised fans and the tweet now has 442 retweets and over 1,600 likes as of this writing.

As some fans question its source, the Twitter user explains, “They revealed this info on a Twitter Space chat with fans recently.”

According to Comicbook, there are no other official details yet about the series’ rumored return.

So far, its sequel, XXX Holic Rei, is still in print after it launched in 2013. The main series, alternatively, officially came to a close in February 2011.

Production IG then adapted it into an anime version in 2006 that ended in 2018.

Anyhow, fans should only take this assumption with a grain of salt as the manga group Clamp has yet to officially confirm it.

A Stage Play Adaptation

Meanwhile, Anime News Network noted a stage play adaptation of XXX Holic manga coming this fall.

It would feature Motohiro Ota as Yuuko and Shogo Sakamoto as Watanuki. Fumiya Matsuzaki would direct the production with the script penned by Masafumi Hata.

The play would follow the manga’s original story of Yuuko, a witch who grants people’s wishes.

However, the wisher has to give Yuuko something precious in return. One day, she meets Watanuki, a man who has visions.

She promises to get rid of the spirits that torment him, but he has to work in her shop and help her grant people’s wishes.

In a desperate move to remove his vision, Watanuki agrees. But he will later realize that she is only tricking him into working for her without paying his services.

He will later realize that his new job with her is nothing like his previous work experience.

It looks like fans still have to wait for Clamp’s official announcement if there will be indeed a new XXX Holic.
