I hate giving this such a low rating, because I m a huge fan of the manga But I had a few issues with it First of all, if you don t read the manga, I wouldn t bother This book would ONLY be entertaining to those who are familiar with the story.The three stories that appear in it are in true xxxHOLiC fashion strange, creepy, and thought provoking The writing itself though this could also be chalked up to translating issues is a bit too passive for my tastes You ll be reading pages regardi I hate giving this such a low rating, because I m a huge fan of the manga But I had a few issues

xxxHOLiC fashion strange, creepy, and thought provoking The writing itself though this could also be chalked up to translating issues is a bit too passive for my tastes You ll be reading pages regarding subjects that could be settled in paragraphs Some of it is round a bout and difficult to understand, while in other instances you ll think I get it already Another sad lacking in this book was the near absence of some of our beloved characters Black Mokona, the strange twins, Doumeki, and Kunogi are only passingly mentioned In fact, Yuko and Watanuki are the only familiar characters.So in the end, if you re a big fan of the manga, you may pick it up to add to your collection But you could probably live without it One thing I must say about this is NisiOisiN seems to have decided not to write the other characters at all i.e Himawari and Doumeki were referenced by name but never appeared Maru and Moro were not even named at all I guess he also doesn t like mascots that much because Mokona isn t a big a presence here either So if that s what you re here for, then it might be good to give this a miss.That said, Landolt Ring Aerosol a title so confusing one can only guess it was

give this a miss.That said, Landolt Ring Aerosol a title so confusing one can only guess it was written by a Japanese person, since they are known to just go with what sounds cool remains quite true to what CLAMP have set out to write in the manga In fact, I think one story made it into the anime But what exactly is that Now I can t say that I actually followed Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle I liked it but xxxHolic isup to my speed because of its genre so I probably missed a lot of the layers close to the end of xxxHolic s original run, but for me it s always been about the mysterious Maybe that s not exactly the word, but we ll run with it It doesn t matter if it s yokai or the human psyche Sometimes things happen that are hard to explain Maybe singular is the word In LRA, NisiOisiN wrote about three different people who wished for something That s normal enough right All stories start because someone wanted something First story is about a woman who can t accept happiness view spoiler But who turns out not to be that type of person at all but actually someone who avoids responsibility What Yuuko points out here is Nurie doesn t want to accept good things because those good things usually come with responsibility All good things happen to balance out bad things If you reject good things, the bad things won t happen A complicated reasoning, but let s say there s a student taking entrance exams for university She pretends to be sick the day exams are held for her first choice, so she goes to her second choice instead Is that so much rejecting happiness as rejecting the responsibility that would come with going to her first choice of university hide spoiler A pretty straight forward story with the xxxHolic twist Fit enough for them to include in the anime Second story is about a university student who was being haunted by a friend who died in a train accident Humans are very complex things aren t they I quite liked this one view spoiler What did she want Well, to be frank, attention hide spoiler Third story is about, well, about Watanuki himself And I had a hard time really getting into this story because the stranger Watanuki met was just really unlikeable And he knows it There s something so repellent about him that even if I didn t dislike him he wasn t really doing anything for me to dislike I didn t want to read about him Kudos to you on getting that across, Nisio But the main thing, the thing that I really loved about this whole novel, is actually something that guy wrote I don t have my copy with me, so to paraphrase don t think that the world in your eyes is the same thing as the world in everyone else s I m a softy, so I cried It s that feeling of loneliness, but at the same time, knowing that everyone else is just as lonely as you are makes you feel less alone For that I ll add that one star Turns out Landolt Ring does have something to do with the story.Also, shout out to Andrew Cunningham for managing to give us as close to the original feel of the novel as possible Not an easy feat considering this is Nisio, who is known for his puns But even harder because that second story literally can t make sense without Japanese I was surprised when I first learn that xxxHolic has a written novel so I decided to pick it up I realy like the morals in each of the 3 stories and I have to say that the description of Yuko san was, somewhat,cruel and mysterious in Watanuki s view compare to the Yuko san expressed in the manga and anime But overall, this is another great book written by NisiOisiN and I m looking forward to readwork from him disturbing and heartbreaking Watanuki and Yuko s relationship is still relatively new and he has no idea what he s in for, but his feelings arecomplicated than he realizes I was thrilled with the Azumanga Daioh reference YES and well, not surprised by the psychological mess within these pages. The book is of three separate stories Watanuki learns of people who have supposedly had a run in with the supernatural, and he brings them to Yuko s magic shop to have their wishes granted The way things are handled is very different from how stories are portrayed in the manga And having read several of Nisioisin s other work, I could easily identify his style It ssimilar to Bakemonogatari, only shorter and evensimplistic.Also Watanuki And Yuki are the only characters from the The book is of three separate stories Watanuki learns of people who have supposedly had a run in with the

mysterious world of xxxHOLiC Written by bestselling author NISIOISIN, and spectacularly illustrated by CLAMP, this original story features the ever excitable high school student Kimihiro Watanuki, the mystifying time space witch Y ko Ichihara, and a host of fascinating new charactersNothing could have thrilled Kimihiro than stumbling upon the bizarre wish granting shop of the beautiful but unnerving Y ko Ichihara, who solemnly promises to make the spirits plaguing Kimihiro go away just as soon as her fee rendered in daily afternoon chores at her shop is paid in fullOf course, the thrill wears off as soon as Kimihiro realizes that his payment plan bears a disturbing resemblance to indentured servitude eternalindentured servitude Still he soldiers on, ready for whatever number of adventures lie ahead But in Kimihiro s case, three may not be the charm His first assignment to procure a pair of fake eyeglasses is exceptionally pointless, even by Y ko s standards Or at least it seems that way, until Kimihiro watches a woman throw herself into traffic He soon discovers that the doors of bespectacled perception can swing both ways Next, when a classmate seeks help solving a mystery involving text messages from the dead, Kimihiro is glad to play Sherlock But he must turn to Y ko to determine whether the root of the riddle is otherworldly shenanigans, deceit, or murder Finally, however ready, willing, and able Kimihiro thinks he is to face the most unusual of circumstances, he still finds himself completely bewildered by the stranger who chases away his darkest spirits, condemns Y ko as a craven charlatan, and offers Kimihiro a way out of his preternatural predicament anda fortune besides Spin off , spin off, CLAMP, XXXHolic , XXXHolic, Spin off , spin off,

Chronicle, but this light novel was my first venture into the story of Watanuki Kimihiro I ll admit that there were a few moments when I was a bit lost, if only because I wasn t familiar with the original story, but it wasn t really that hard to figure out what was happening once I got further into the stories.This book is comprised of three stand alone short stories the first is about a girl who can t help but break any taboo that she comes across if the pedestrian light is red, she ll cross the street, if a sign says do not enter, she enters anyway the second story is about a girl who seems to be receiving text messages from her dead best friend and the third story was about an obnoxiously rude man who can see demons but also has the power to unsee them if he wishes All stories feature high school student Watanuki Kimihiro and the dimension witch, Ichihara Y ko, and are tied together through the idea of wish granting.While I liked the stories well enough, I do have to say that the writing was a bit flat This may be because it was translated into English from the original Japanese novel, but it felt a bit unattached, as though I were watching an anime with no sound and having to rely only on subtitles This bothered me quite a bit, but as the stories themselves were pretty interesting, I was able to keep reading they each had a unique spin on some oddities of human behavior, which I found entertaining.I now think that I d like to check out the original xxxHOLiC manga to get a better grasp of the story line the idea of a boy working as an indentured servant to a wish granting dimension witch in exchange for losing the ability to see and attract demons is rather intriguing But for now, this particular story collection gets 3 out of 5 stars from me Esta novela est basada en el manga xxxHolic de Clamp, uno de mis preferidos de las autoras, as que cuando descubr que hab a una novela quise leerla Para los que no sepais de qu va xxxHolic, resumi ndolo mucho,

acaba trabajando all como pago por cumplir su deseo que es dejar de ver esp ritus Esta novela est basada en el manga xxxHolic de Clamp, uno de mis preferidos de las autoras, as que cuando descubr que

mujer llamada Y ko donde te conceden tu deseo m s preciado a cambio de un precio justo l acaba trabajando all como pago por cumplir su deseo que es dejar de ver esp ritus Ahora la novela en ella encontramos 3 historias Lo que lleva a los clientes a la tienda es del mismo estilo que las que podemos encontrar en el manga, sin embargo, aqu se acaban todos los parecidos Sobre todo en el principio de cada parte ten a la sensaci n de que hab a m s texto de relleno que algo de provecho Me refiero a escenas de 4 5 8 p ginas que en manga no habr an sido m s de 3 4 vi etas.Y luego est n los personajes De todos los protagonistas y secundarios que aparecen en el manga s lo Y ko y Watanuki aparecen, y est n un poco fuera de caracter leyendo el manga nunca he pensado que Watanuki fuera medio tonto, ni que Y ko fuera cruel y mala por diversi n la manera de hablarle a Watanuki es alucinante Reconozco que escribir bas ndote en personajes que no son tuyos es muy dif cil, y es imposible contentar a todo el mundo En mi caso, la imagen que tengo de los dos protas poco se parece a esta, as que es como si hubiera le do una novela sobre algo parecido a xxxHolic, pero no me ha gustado tanto como el original
