CLAMP’s popular manga “xxxHOLiC” is made into a live-action movie
The original “xxxHOLiC” is the best-selling comic of the creative group CLAMP, which depicts paranormal phenomena with aesthetic visuals. It was serialized in Young Magazine from 2003 to 2010, and the total sales of books exceeded 14 million copies. The popular manga, which has been made into novels, animations, live-action dramas, and theatrical performances, will be made into live-action movies for the first time.

Directed by Mika Ninagawa
Mika Ninagawa, one of Japan’s leading photographers and creators, takes the megaphone. She has worked on the movies “Diner Diner”, “No Longer Human and the Three Women” and the Netflix original drama “FOLLOWERS”, and has a track record in video works. Mika Ninagawa has been a fan of the original since the publication of “xxxHOLiC”, and has been eager to make it into a movie for about 10 years, warming up the concept.
An action scene full of VFX will also appear in the play. I would like to pay attention to how Mika Ninagawa makes a live-action film of the one and only CLAMP world.
