The decision to return the series to its roots is an interesting one and although it may cause a bit of confusion for some readers I feel that it was a good move and adds a nice level of interest as I am very excited to see how the series plays out. The change also means that the series is probably a bit more open to new readers than it would otherwise have been (although some references may be lost on them and the series does skip some of the series setup). The artwork for the series is in the typically beautiful style of CLAMP and, in my view, has some simply stunning images at various points, it is just a shame that those pages that were originally in full colour have been reproduced here in black and white.
The translation for the series is generally good with the retention of the Japanese honorifics as well as some nice translation notes at the end.
Overall this I think this was a good return for the series and although it probably isn't at as good as the original at this point, things are definitely looking interesting and if nothing else it is good to see all the old characters again. I personally feel this first volume of 'xxxHOLiC: Rei' is worth a good four and a half stars.
The artwork is the traditional Clamp style, simple but very nicely done with its own flare. As for the story in this chapter there are two separate ones, the first is a pair of women connected with phone charms while the other is Watanuki hearing voices, which hints at the before mentioned deeper meaning to this new series.
Role on November for the second part of many I hope.
This book is a return to the series. Old fans who have read the series from beginning to end may think that this rewind in the story as all the characters return, the stories are brilliant, but hints of a something deeper running through them all.
I recommend that anyone who has read the first series to pick up Rei - I doubt you will be disappointed.

In this volume, Yuuko looks younger than ever, to the point where she could be a love interest for Watanuki. I like this new tension between the pair. The stories are all engaging and pleasant. As hungry as I am for more xxxHolic, this volume delivers the meat!
I hardly have to say that the art is fantastic! As always. Clamp has multiple drawing styles, and I love the art-deco style used in XXXHolic. Slightly exaggerated slim and long bodies. Long legs. Everyone is a fashion model! Impactful facial expressions. From cute to comic slapstick to deadly serious, the artwork demonstrates just how flexible Clamp can be without ever taking a player out of character! Clamp takes no short-cuts! Every page is drawn with care and expertise.
For newbies, this volume gives sufficient background so you can start reading right now. Later you can decide if you want to go back to read the first series. For experienced readers, I heartily recommend everything Clamp has ever produced, excepting perhaps their first series Rayearth. XXXHolic is the best of all Clamp's series in terms of comedy and artwork.
If you've already read and loved xxxholic, then my next recommendation is Tokyo Babylon. Out of print but easily obtained.
Its a story about a magical shop that grants wishes. Has slightly darker themes. People do die and morals are questioned.
