Excellent Manga!

Reader reviewed by Crimin

If youve ever seen Card Captor Sakura or Chobits, xxxHolic is drawn by the same artist foursome, CLAMP.  Its the tale about a boy who can see spirits, Wakanuki, and how he is eventually driven to work for a witch who can grant wishes for the buyer.

Well, thats not exactly how it works.  Yuko doesnt really grant wishes, per se, merely exchanges her magic for an item of great value that the customer must sacrifice.  It sounds crazy, I know.  But its intriguing to watch the story unfold and to find out why people come to Yukos shop what they desire to happen and what they must give up in return.

Lovely series. You should all go and pick it up!

Wonderful

Reader reviewed by mlecompt

When Watanuki walks past a strange house he is inexplicable drawn inside. Living there is a witch named Yuko who promises to grant a wish for Watanuki; she claims she can stop him from seeing the spirits which has plagued him for years. However, to get the wish, Watanuki must work off the price of the wish by working in Yuko's shop.

The art in this book is wonderful and character design is top notch. In this volume we learn a little about Watanuki as he makes his bargain with Yuko and then observes her helping a couple of her customers. The ending is a cliffhanger which definitely makes me want to read more.
