“XxxHOLiC” follows the misadventures of the schoolboy Kimihiro Watanuki who is cursed with the ability to see spirits. He stumbles upon a shop run by the mysterious Yuko Ichihara, who removes his curse in exchange for him becoming her personal cook and housekeeper. As Kimihiro becomes more involved in Yuko’s shop, he uncovers unsettling truths that cross time and space.
