It was announced that supernatural/mystery anime series xxxHolic will be getting a live-action TV drama adaptation.
Drama series will be broadcasted via Japanese satellite TV station WOWOW next year. Sometani Shota (Tsumi to Batsu: A Falsified Romance and Alice, O-PARTS) will be portraying Kimihiro Watanuki, a high school student plagued daily by spirits who are constantly attracted to him while Anne (real name: Watanabe Anne) will portray time-space witch Yūko Ichihara.
Keisuke Toyoshima will be directing the series.
Watanuki Kimihiro can see spirits and other assorted supernatural creatures, which is quite a bothersome ability he strongly dislikes. On the way home one day, while plagued by some spirits, he is inexplicably compelled to enter a strange house. There, he encounters Yuuko, a mysterious woman who claims to be able to rid him of the ability to see and attract the troublesome creatures – for a price. She demands that he work at her “store” that grants wishes to people, and thus begins Watanuki’s adventures through weird and wonderful events.
