5.0 out of 5 stars No Kei August 3, 2009
Format:DVD
For all who know that there are two seasons of xxxHOLIC, this contains only season one. Which is a great season, lots of Watanuki and Yuko time. Doumeki and Himawari are there as well. I haven't listen to the english voices so I can't say how well the dub was done, but I do enjoy the subtitles.

For those who were hoping that the "complete series" would contain the second season, xxxHOLIC Kei, it is not here. Hopefully Funimation will bring it out in a box set soon, as the other distributor discontinued before it was finished, or really even begun good.

I'll still rate it five stars because the price was really good, and the show is excellent. I'll just keep waiting for Kei.

4.0 out of 5 stars Careful what you wish for August 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kimihiro Watanuki is an all-around nice guy who would give anyone the shirt off his back. Unfortunately for him, life often isn't fair; and in addition to being an orphan he's plagued by having an aura which attracts often malicious creatures from the spirit world but no ability to protect himself from them. One day, he finds himself in the shop of the mysterious, all-powerful witch Yuko, who tells him that if he basically becomes her indentured servant for a period of time she'll give him the solution to his problem - and Watanuki has reached the point where he's just become desperate enough to agree.

Yuko's solution for Watanuki is for him to seek out his schoolmate Domeki, the calm, collected star of his school's archery team who just so happens to be a natural exorcist - and incidentally the one person Watanuki can't stand due to insane jealousy largely stemming from Domeki being on friendly terms with Watanuki's crush, the lovely, sunny Himawari. Domeki, however, seems more focused on keeping Watanuki in one piece than hitting on Himawari...

So begins Watanuki's journey to end his problem and, because he's a very good person, try to help some of the other customers who come to Yuko's shop - if he doesn't get himself killed first.

The first thing that fans of the Holic manga will notice is that some of the events have been switched around in the anime, which might disorient them a bit but isn't really a huge problem at this point, as the story doesn't start to become too linear yet (it does beginning with the events presumably covered by the as yet unlicensed second season).

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING March 18, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I went in blind on this one. I've seen many many anime and I loved the product description, so I bought xxxHolic. One word can describe it... AMAZING. It arrived super fast, and I was soon was drawn into the uniquely drawn world of inevitablility. I soon fell in love with Yuuko and Watanuki. It didn't fall into the realm of the same old boring anime. This series is like a breath of fresh air.

This is the second box set release by Funimation of the first season of xxxHolic. It's an excellent series and there are enough reviews of the previous box set that should give you a good introduction if you're not already familiar with it.

When multiple releases start appearing, I think it's good to know how one release differs from another. I got this set in advance from another web site (for $30) where it was titled as a Viridian Collection set from Funimation, which is how they designate their budget releases. However, this set does not actually say "Viridian Collection" anywhere on it. The seies is set on 4-DVD's with 6 episodes on each disc. The set takes up the same space as a normal DVD case. It has an outer cardboard slip-cover with the same artwork as in the case itself. The discs are set on two double-sided hub pages that hold the discs in place very well and there is additional artwork visable inside with a listing of all the episodes. There aren't any on disc extras beyond textless songs and trailers but the original single disc releases of the series were the same way.

If this truly is a Viridian Collection, then it seems like a nice improvement over prior packaging choices. The only thing missing from previous Funimation releases of the series would be the artwork on the cases, although this set still looks really good. If you've been waiting for a lower priced release of xxxHolic, then this one is a great choice.

This is one of those series that starts out with you wondering "Huh. Not sure if I like this." The animation is unusual (according to the creators, it is based on wood block carving styles), the main character (Kimihiro Watanuki) has two volumes - normal and screaming. He is hands-down the most annoying male character I have seen in Anime today, but, good or bad, he grows on you.

The story centers on Watanuki, his job at a special shop that exists in and out of this world, and the shop's owner, Yuko Ichihara, an enigmatic character with a love of good food and plenty of alcohol. Supporting characters include: Shizuka D'meki, a fellow student who lives in a temple, and has a passive power to ward off spirits. Himawari Kunogi, the girl Watanuki has a crush on. Maru & Moro, two girls without souls that are bound to the shop. Mokona, a rabbit-like critter with above average intelligence, who shares Yuko's taste for food and drink.

Most episodes center on different customer and their problems - all the customers were female. There are also some episodes centering on the main characters - vacations, activities, and the like. These are more light-hearted and humorous, as opposed to the darker, serious tone of the customer based ones. This really is a series worth looking at. Check out the pages on Wikipedia - there's OVA,tons of Manga and more than one season to keep you busy!
