  • Interesting...

    This is such a fun and quirky show. Amusing, and definitely a good show to watch when you're bored. I once watched 10 episodes in a row, so that should tell you something! I have yet to watch the second season, however. I'll get around to it at some point, hopefully...
  • Kimihiro Watanuki, a boy who can see spirits, inevitably enters a wish granting shop which would change his life forever.......

    When I saw this show, I thought it was hilarious! It is very interesting and intriguing. However, it seems that all the episodes are only one episode long. There isn't really any exciting story arcs or anything, that is, in the beginning there's not. I gotta say, things really start to get intense as it approaches the finale of Season 1, and the excitement continues in the very first episode of Season 2. I really like this show and will see it to the end.

    Weirdly enough though, I wasn't really ever interested in the show in the first place. The only reason I ever thought about this show is because I am a big fan of the show it crosses over with, Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE. It refers to Yuko a lot so I decided to check it out just to see if it was any good. IT WAS!! I went through the entire first season in just one weekend (if I find a good anime, I'm addicted until the show is done). I really enjoy watching this show, I guess I would call it a fun show to watch because I find the main character, Watanuki, histarical. I really like this show and would recomend it to anyone. It's pretty much a PG rating so it's not really bad comparing to more mature shows. I'd say 10 pionts out of 10. (I don't give out 10s that easily.)moreless
  • Kimihiro Watanuki bares a cursed gift which not only let's him see evil spirits but also attract them also. One day he enters into a mysterious shop run by Yuuko. She offers to remove the gift on one condition; Watanuki must work in her strange shop.moreless

    When watching the show, it first reminded me of both "Ouran High School Host Club" and "Petshop of Horrors". This show is mostily about Kimihiro Watanuki a young boy with a cursed gift. He has the ability to see evil spirits, and somehow they seem attracted to himself. In the show they look more like big blobs of tar. But anyway one day, he meets a mysterious woman who names herself Yuuko. She claims to have the means to end his torment, but she never works for free, and she wouldn't help him until he works for her enough to pay for her services. Thus he starts to work in her shop and discovers that in that place, nothing is what it seems. In the show Watanuki, soon finds out that the world is not just different but also every thing has it's own price. I reconmend this anime to those who have fallen in love with "Cased Closed" "Card Captor" or even "Clamp School Detectives".moreless
  • Ahead of it's time. xxxHolic not only teaches you life lessons but it's dark adult theme leaves you wanting more. Yuko makes this show what it is.

    A dark themed anime that draws you into it's magic themed world. It gives you manly outlooks on human behaviors and teaches valuable lessons. The old logic of nothing can be gained without sacrifices is highlighted throughout the series. CLAMP's spinnoff from Tsubasa in my opinion is amazing. It does'nt have the usual components of a regular anime but that's why I like it. Yuko guilds Kimihiro through the lessons of life that will help you grow. While it has it's serious themes Yuko and the occupants of her home provide comedy. It's a very interesting outlook on life and magic.moreless
  • XXX Holic is a cool anime......for me....

    It is about a boy calls Kimihiro Watanuki, is a high school student who is continually plagued by supernatural monsters (youkai) and spirits which are magically attracted to him. The creatures are invisible to all but him, and as a result he feels extremely burdened by them. When he quite literally stumbles into a shop that grants wishes, his life changes drastically. Within the shop is the seductively beautiful Yuko Ichihara, a witch of many names and esoteric renown. The seemingly all-knowing witch soon gets down to business: she offers to grant Watanuki's wish to be rid of his ability to see spirits. However, a price equal to the power required to grant the wish must be paid. Yûko discovers that Watanuki is very skilled with his hands and a hard worker. As a result, Watanuki soon finds himself forced to perform housework and odd jobs for Yûko until he has done enough work for his wish to be granted. Besides, XXX Holic is authored by CLAMP(the Cardcartor Sakura, Choblts and Tsubasa Cronicle's author) but I prefer the story in manga......moreless
