Despite xxxHolic being my favorite manga, it is also one of CLAMP's greatest creations. It also has something unique that most mangas don't have. And that's the fact that it crosses over with another manga. xxxHolic, is defenitely not just any ordinary manga. Pick up a copy and read it. You will not be dissapointed.

The plot definitely deserves a 5/5. Who thought that there could be plot that uses the "eye for an eye" deal as good as this one. It immediately caught my attention, and actually connects with CLAMP fans. Tsubasa fans will definitely be grasped by the story of xxxHolic.

Awesome characters. Yuuko's humor and wisdom were combined in a great sense that makes her likable, and fun. Watanuki is a great character that you can get into and enjoy. He's hilarious, and unfortunately reminds of myself XD

Drawing Style
The art is where I have to drop my 5. The art is great and everything, but the characters have long disppraportioned bodies. So either you like the art, or you hate it. I actually love it. The art matces the dark mood of this manga and the characters are drawn nicely. Despite the long noodley bodies.

xxxHolic never strays into boredom and is always exciting. The amount of suspense, humor, and excitemet is delivered in a very well balanced manner, that keeps you constantly turning the pages and chapters. I highly advise that you pick up a copy of xxxHolic and read it.

An excellent manga that ALL CLAMP FANS WILL LOVE. I recommend it to almost everyone.
