This one is certainly my favorite volume of the series so far. The Monkey's Paw has always been an urban legend which gives me the chills and this manga did the tale justice. Some of my favorite parts were Mokona dust beating the rugs with Fai's magic staff and Watanuki wearing persocome ears. It's always fun to actually get the inside joke. Also, Domeki is an interesting character. He seems so flat most of the time, but you know there has got to be more to him. I'll certainly be reading on with this series.
Volume 3 of xxxHolic has two stories. In the first, Doumeki and Watanuki investigate a school where supernatural things have been occuring due to students obsession with something like a ouija board. In the second story, a woman aquires a scroll from Yuko which contains a monkey's paw which will grant 5 wishes, one for each finger, but with every wish comes some misfortune. I particularly like the monkey hand story, which is a nice dark story. It suffers a little from not really having any of the xxxHolic characters in it other then a little Yuko and Watanuki wandering around worrying vaguely. This volume also has the first bit of the fox udon stuff in, which is incredibly sweet.
