The new manga by the CLAMP mangaka team will be delayed with abut half a month. The initial date was set for February and it was going to be a part of the great promotion of xxxHolic together with the live-action adaptation of the original story of Watanuki and Yuko.

The reason why every single manga being published in New Young Magazine has been pushed back by a week is the issue with the ‘inappropriate’ photograph of AKB48 idol Tomomi Kasai. xxxHOLiC : Rei is just one of the many victims of this misunderstanding. If you don’t know what it’s all about – New Young magazine published an issue with a so-called ‘inappropriate’ image of the AKB48 member and had to take the edition off the shelves and re-issue the item afterwards.
