Synopsis

10 years after the events of xxxHOLiC Shunmuki, a melancholic Kimihiro Watanuki has taken over the shop formerly run by the mysterious Yuuko due to a promise he made to her. His companions Maru, Moro, and Mokona live together with him in relative contentment, and some familiar faces arrive every now and then: former rival turned-steadfast friend Shizuka Doumeki, and the former psychic prodigy Kohane Tsuyuri. While Kohane studies folklore under Doumeki at university, they encounter a case that is perfect for the master of the shop.

Eventually, Watanuki receives a visit from Doumeki's grandfather, Haruka. He requests that Watanuki investigates his grandson's dreams. While inside the dream world, he discovers how their past adventures played out from Doumeki's perspective of view, leading Watanuki to discover truths from 10 years ago and secrets about the ties that bind their friendship.

OVA "xxxHOLiC Rou" is set 10 years after Watanuki's part-timer years in the anime series.

The story begins with Ghibli-evil-assimilation-like disappearance of Yuuko, whether a dream or reminiscence, we are not certain. Watanuki makes a promise that he will wait for her return, and that he believes dream will come true as long as he believes in it. Watanuki was the new master at the 'shop' when he opens his eyes. No longer a jumpy and clumsy high school kid, Watanuki has an air of authority and confidence. However, there's the same care-free atmosphere in the 'shop' with Maru, Moro, and Mokona running around the house, read more

So my format I set this out in is that if I skip a line, that means its a new paragraph. If I have a new line, its the same topic; just a different point.

and.....I might include spoilers without me knowing it so.....As a precaution, I'll apologise now.

So the story takes place 10 years after yuko's 'death' or 'disappearance' and it show how much the characters have changed. Hiwamari is married, doumeki is a professor and kohane is a student in the same university.This setting is the same as the manga yet the story is well, a side story since there isn't anything like this read more

Alright I'm back with another review with this anime again. This OVA is even better than xxxHOLic, xxxHOLic Kei, xxxHOLic movie, and xxxHOLic shunmuki ( a bit good but not better than Rou). Major spoiler!!! You have been warned!!

Story (9/10): Okay so the story is pretty much rushed BUT it's awesome. The story took place 10 years later and I actually want to know what happened and I hope it show in the manga because I'll be reading it soon. I was really confused to as what happened to Yuuko when she says something about her already being dead and her disappearance. After her read more

After Yuuko's death. And yes her death. If you were keeping up with Tsubasa Chronicle the series that often connects with this one.
In this sequel he's waiting for Yuuko to return. I enjoyed seeing this side of Watanuki even though this is extremely sad. The only part that has me upset is that Clamp leaves him in this space for the anime. He's waiting for someone who will never show. He won't leave the shop even when his power is strong enough that he's able. The one thing I wanted was closure and read more
