Here's a summary of the updates for xxxHOLiC drama:
- They haven't made any special requests for this adaptation.
- They left everything in charge of the director and the staff.
- Their favorite scenes upon reading the script were the beginning, when Watanuki meets Yuuko, and the ending.
- They confirm the absence of Mokona in this adaptation, and recognize that it would be difficult to have it as a plush toy or CG, even though they would really like to see Mokona in a live action.
- In the case of the TV drama becoming a regular series, they would like to see more of Anne's performance and Watanuki as the shop's owner in "Rou".
- Naoto Takenaka will play the role of Ayakashi in the form of a doctor (and not Haruka Doumeki)
