xxxHolic TV series

Episode one is not bad by any stretch of imagination but I do question the writers' decision to use an original material here. I wonder if the original story involving the lying woman is considered too graphic for TV-viewing audience.

Summary and impression of the first episode

The lying woman story might still appear in the anime.. who knows. & i think its good how they're not adding the Tsubasa part of the story, kinda gives it a new edge.

The lying woman story will be next episode. I'm pretty sure that's her and the ring that I saw in the preview.

HORIKKU (HORIK). The xxx is only meant for you to fill in the blank, ie: Alcoholic, Computer-holic, workaholic, etc.

Aah. I've been pronouncing it with "x-x-x" all this time.

I enjoyed it. Great look. Good animation. Fortunately for me, I've read only a bit of the manga, so I am not disturbed by the new material. I hope the following episodes can be as interesting.

And I thought Ohara Sayaka as Yuuko was a wonderful voice. She was Bel-Peol in Shana (not sure if that's the best way to refer to the character, since I haven't watched the whole show), as well as Raquel Casull in Scrapped Princess, Alicia in ARIA, and Uchida in Noein.

Ohara's been Yuuko in the movie & Tsubasa Chronicles, she really is the perfect Yuuko.

The way Shizuka Itou does Himawari's voice, believe me you won't regonise Wihelmina.

Gaaah, i love Himwari.. and nothing beats how Watanuki says her name. <3

Well, it definitely looks that way, but occasionally anime licensors will sit on a domain that they don't actually have rights to because they're expecting to get them.

Though since Funi already has Tsubasa, and the Tsubasa and xxxHOLiC movies, I imagine licensing the xxxHOLiC TV show would be a no-brainer.
