xxxHOLiC: Rei Volume 1: 11/28/14

cover artTo my delight and surprise, CLAMP has started a new manga series in the xxxHolic universe. xxxHolic: Rei Volume 1 by CLAMP is somewhere in the middle of the old series before Yuko's disappearance, though it shares the same name (Rei) as the ending few volumes.

The shop is visited on alternating days by women who claim to be each other's best friend. They have identical phone charms where one is clean and the other is beat up. One of the women bears scars eerily familiar to those of the phone charm.

Anyone familiar with CLAMP's work, and especially's Watanuki's story, will recognize the theme of linked destinies — or more precisely, linked hitsuzen. But there's a twist where one's state of mind, or state of heart, determines the path a curse takes, and it's now how you'd expect.
