xxx is the Japanese equivalent of a blank.
So the title is kinda like '___holic'. Meaning you can fill the blank with an addiction like many of the people we find Yuuko and Watanuki helping - like the woman who lied all the time, or the woman who was addicted to the internet. So instead of ALCOholic or WORKAholic...we have a whole variety of "holic's" that can be applied. ^_^ Hope this helps!

Didn't know the difference, but thanks KanameChan for the information.

While the shopkeeper does have a certain sex-appeal, I think I'm going to have to side with KanameChan about this. Though I didn't know the xxx was the Japanese equivalent of our ___. That's new to me.

Apparently the Japanese are unaware of the meaning of "xxx" in the United States. While it may indicate a blank, it can also indicate the realm of the supernatural and esoteric, which is popular with teens in Japan -- and fitting with the content of the manga.

I knew the 'xxx' didn't mean hentai or anything, but I never thought about it meaning blank. That makes so much sense! Now I can tell my other friends who read the manga to. We've always wondered what the 'xxx' meant... Thanks KanameChan!

hmm, I never thought what the xxx could refer to. it's really helpful to know, and explains so much too, about the story and everything. :D

I thought it was because XXXHOLiC was (or is currently) syndicated in a Seinen (category of manga targeting young men) magazine...(Heh, I guess it might apply in the places where it's being licensed...) But that's really interesting, KanameChan (: Thanks for telling us that!
