Now that it’s semestral break I have the chance to watch xxxHolic in Animax.  I was not able to see the earlier episodes because I didn’t know it has replays every weekends but the anime is easy to understand and so I got at least, the ‘idea’ of the whole anime.  If you love Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits, Magical Knights Rayearth or Tsubasa Chronicles, then probably you would also love xxxHolic, as they are both planned and presented by Clamp originally.  xxxHolic is a seinen manga that is serialized in Kodansha Young Magazine and published widely in places like United States and United Kingdom.

The story is about the high school student Kimihiro Watanuki who keeps on seeing ghosts and spirits, which disturbs him a lot, and so when he stumbles upon a shop that grants wishes, he wishes to never see those troublesome spirits again.  The shop is own by Yūko Ichihara, a devious, beautiful and mysterious witch.  She grants Watanuki’s request, but for a price – Watanuki will become Ichihara’s part-time employee, assisting the witch in through small errands.  Yūko tends to be really demanding in lavish degrees, and Watanuki becomes irritable sometimes.

I love the opening theme song of the anime entitled 19sai performed by Suga Shikao.

Opening Song xxxHolic

Here you go.  The opening theme song of the anime xxxholic.  I love this.  There’s a kind of “drunk-feel” in it, with Suga Shikao’s hoarse cool and soothing voice.

Original Romaji Lyrics

Kuchibiru ni doku wo nutte boku no heya ni kita deshou?

Anata no kisu de mou karada mo mune mo toketeshimaisou

Daikiraina boku 19 sai

Daikiraina boku 19 sai

Hakike ga suru kurai anata no kokoro utsukushii no ni

Nani hitotsu dekinai boku ni doushite kisu shite kureru no?

Daikiraina hibi 19 sai

Daikiraina kao 19 sai

Kuroage hachou no you ni hokorashii hane de tobitai

Kudaranaitte iwanaide sonna jinsei ga ii no ii no…

Yogoreteru tamashii dake wo torinozoku no ga muri nara

Dochira ni arukeba sore wo mirai to yoberu no deshou?

Chuuburarinna yume 19 sai

Chuuburarinna uso 19 sai

Kuroage hachou ni natte dare kara mo aisaretai

Kubukurin nai toshitemo hon no isshun de ii no ii no…

Daikiraina boku 19 sai

Daikiraina boku 19 sai

Kuroage hachou no you ni hokorashii hane de tobitai

Kudaranaitte iwanaide sonna jinsei ga ii no ii no…

Kuroage hachou ni natte dare kara mo aisaretai

Kubukurin nai toshitemo hon no isshun de ii no ii no…

English Translation

You put on poison on your lips and came to my room, didn’t you?

With your kiss, my body and mind feel like they’re going to melt

I hate myself, 19 years old

I hate myself, 19 years old

Your heart is so beautiful it makes me want puke

Why do you kiss me, somebody who can’t do a thing?

I hate these days, 19 years old

I hate this face, 19 years old

I want to fly with proud wings like the black swallowtail butterfly

Don’t say it’s lame, I want that kind of life…

If it’s impossible to only take out the soiled soul

Which way should I go to call that as the future?

Indecisive dreams, 19 years old

Indecisive lies, 19 years old

I want to become a black swallowtail butterfly and be loved by everybody

Even though that’s 99% not possible, I want to even for a moment…

I hate myself, 19 years old

I hate myself, 19 years old

I want to fly with proud wings like the black swallowtail butterfly

Don’t say it’s lame, I want that kind of life…

I want to become a black swallowtail butterfly and be loved by everybody

Even though that’s 99% not possible, I want to even for a moment…

Great! I’m 20 years old. Laughs.
