Shota looks really adorable and Anne looks suitable for Yuko, so I'm really excited. :'D But really, a drama series for xxxHolic? :D Never expected. I wish there was a drama list on MAL.

Last night I was just re-reading and re-watching some parts of this series, what coincidence!

Oh can't wait for this... This should be good.

Hmm, I can't say I liked xxxHolic's anime enough to say I'm looking forward to other works involving it's story, but I can say that Anne is incredibly gorgeous.

Don't know... I'm a little bit reluctant...
What really made xxxHolic special, in my opinion, was the way how they brought the story together with the music and the different drawing style.
Hopefully they'll manage to maintain that ambiance in the drama.

IMO the manga has better art style and plot execution. Graphic-wise, the characters are drawn like noodle in the anime (or also like Slenderman) which makes it looks unaesthetic to some people (If if you don't mind, go ahead though). Story-wise, I think the manga covers the whole story better because there's some parts which isn't animated in the anime.

Something to note at, xxxHOLiC happens in the same universe as Drug & Drop and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, thus there are some crossovers in the manga (mainly with Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles). It's actually advised to read Tsubasa first (btw the Tsubasa manga is WAY better and not chopped) or read those two at once, because there's a chapter near the end of xxxHOLiC which simply spoils the ending of Tsubasa, and there's a chapter near the end of Tsubasa which spoils xxxHolic.

But if it feels tiresome, just skip Tsubasa and go straight to xxxHolic. Genre-wise, Tsubasa is more Shonen (fights, blood, magic, sword skills and romance) while xxxHolic is more Seinen (folklore, character development, sacrifices, melancholic story with hints of romance).

Now back to xxxHOLiC.
Chronogically, the OVA goes between chapter 209 and 210 CMIIW, but in my opinion, the most enjoyable storyline would be:

Manga chapter 1 -> 209 -> OVA Shunmuki episode one -> 213 -> OVA Shunmuki episode two.

^ Chronogically it's not quite right, but IMO the OVA ending fits better into "ending" category than the manga ending. The manga ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, while the OVA ending completes the manga ending and delivers a final mindblow to fans. Ahh... now I want to read it again...

I dunno about this Shota guy, but Anne, she's such an untalented actress, plus she doesn't have charisma for this role. Anyway, I have no intention to watch it.

Ehhhhh? Sounds cool, but how will some of the characters look? I loved the ones with big, wild, curly hair. I hope they don't change them completely.

I'm pretty sure that xxxHolic has something going for it that's more than 'meh' since there are so many adaptations.
