The latest Original Animation DVD (OAD) of Clamp’s popular xxxHolic series, titled xxxHolic Dragon (or xxxHolic Long depending on how you want to translate it) has been delayed, according to the pre-order information posted today by Japanese publisher Kodansha. The DVD was originally supposed to come with the limited edition of the manga’s 16th volume, but it is now scheduled to be part of Volume 17. The 4800-yen (US$53, roughly) limited edition will be released in February of 2010.

xxxHolic (pronounced just “Holic”) is the story of Watanuki Kimihiro, who asks a witch to take away his ability to see ghosts and is forced to work for her as payment. The fantasy manga series deals with wish fulfillment and the supernatural, and has been popular since its inception in 2003. It is currently being published in English by Del Rey Manga, while the TV anime based on the manga is licensed by FUNimation and is currently being streamed on the FUNimation Channel.
