Studio Production I.G.’s xxxHOLiC is a series of mysterious and disturbing animated shorts.
This anime is based on a popular manga series of the same name, which was created by the manga collective CLAMP.
Kimihiro Watanuki is a typical high school student, but he has a special ability: he can see ghosts. But that’s not his only problem.
Demonic spirits have started to get in the way of his peaceful life.
On a random day, he enters a business run by a lady he can only assume is named Yuuko. She assured him she could end his suffering forever.
But in exchange, he has to do her bidding. Starting today, Watanuki will work in a store that is not what it seems.
