"There is no such thing as coincidence in this world - there is only inevitability"
Haunted by visions of ghosts and spirits, Kimihiro Watanuki seemingly encounters a mysterious witch named Yuko, who claims she can help. Kimihiro accepts her help out of desperation, but realizes that he has just been tricked into working for the witch in order to pay off the cost of her services. He is soon employed in her little shop which is a job that turns out to be nothing like his previous work experiences!
This is a CLAMP work and is the darker companion to CLAMP's Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. There are also many crossovers with other CLAMP works within the story besides Tsubasa. The anime has two seasons, xxxHOLiC with 24 episodes (released in English by Funimation), and xxxHOLiC Kei with 13. Most of the references to Tsubasa were removed from the anime. There has also been a feature-length movie (A Midsummer Night's Dream) and a 2-part OAD series, xxxHolic: Shunmuki and another OAD, unrelated to the plot of the first one, called xxxHolic: Rou.
The manga has not been completed, it will be resumed on Feb 2013. Currently it has 213 chapters. The name is pronounced holic, by the way. The 'xxx' basically denotes "insert something here", along the lines of '___holic' in English.
