xxxHOLiC
Holic is a sister series of Tsubasa. Meaning they coincide with one another. It's about a guy named Watanuki who comes to Yuko's shop. Yuko's shop is known for granting wishes for a price of course. This series is full of supernatural stories about ghosts, superstitions, and hituzen. Highly Reccomended.
