Perhaps this is why they're waiting a year? Does CLAMP plan on picking Kobato up to regular speed with the completion of TRC and xxxHolic on the horizon??

Hopefully!

I'm excited, but at the same time, I'm curious.... what exactly are they going to base the anime on? There hasn't exactly been that much plot development...

Autumn of 2009, so long... Supposedly, the saying goes "the longer it takes, the better it will be", but autumn 2009 is just a very long wait.

The character designs of the magazine preview looks great, but the manga synopsis doesn't look very interesting at all..

it's for sure on my Plan to watch list!
