* Based on a seinen manga by Clamp serialised in Young Magazine.

Watanuki Kimihiro is a high school student plagued by youkai and ayakashi, spirits with a strong attraction to him. The spirits are invisible to others and encounters with them are extremely troublesome. When he stumbles into a shop that grants wishes, however, events in his life promise to become more unusual.

The shop is owned by Ichihara Yuuko, a mysterious and beautiful (sometimes playful) witch of many names and esoteric renown. For a price, she offers to grant Watanuki`s wish to be rid of the spirits. The price, according to Yuuko, must be of equal value and so, as payment, he temporarily becomes Yuuko`s part-time employee.

Watanuki`s job consists of small errands dealing with the supernatural and household chores. His love interest, Kunogi Himawari, and "rival", Doumeki Shizuka, occasionally join him in his work as per Yuuko`s request. The three become increasingly close despite Watanuki`s annoyance with Doumeki.

The world of xxxHolic is directly connected to several other of Clamp`s works through dimensional traveling. The series is directly connected to Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle, while other series including Cardcaptor Sakura, Legal Drug, and Magic Knight Rayearth are referenced at different times.

Sorry, I might be kind of biased, because this one is one of my favorites since it was the first anime I ever watched. I love the odd art style to it, i love the mystical soundtrack, i love Doumeki and Watanuki's hilarious chemistry, especially in the manga. And I love the way that watanukis character matures throughout the series, almost in a sad kind of way. It may not be the best anime out there, but it's worth the watch.
