xxxHolic Rei to Be Delayed until March

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.

    I am happy that there are countries in the world that would still take an entire circulation off the shelves because of an inappropriate picture.

      Are you kidding me?! That’s an awkward publicity stunt that would’ve been made 40 years ago in the USA.
