I hate the xxxHolic live action series.
Hate it with BURNING PASSION.
Goddamit, I don't know what drugs the scriptwriter was on but WHAT THE EFFIN HELL, all of the episodes were practically re-written to center around HIMAWARI.
Following what I know of the anime (because I haven't have the time to read the manga yet), ALL of the episodes used in the live action were supposedly centered on building the trust and relationship between Watanuki and Doumeki--Angel-san, Hydrangea and Yellow spider specifically. I HAVE BEEN ALL GIDDY WITH DELIGHT WHEN I FOUND OUT THEY INCLUDED THE SPIDER EPISODE. The part where Watanuki sacrificed his right eye in exchange for Doumeki's sight and then Doumeki offering half his sight for his? I WAS SO READY TO SEE IT IN LIVE ACTION I WAS PRACTICALLY VIBRATING WITH EXCITEMENT. And then... THAT PIECE OF ASDFGHJKL HAPPENED.. D8 HIMAWARI WASN'T EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE IN MOST OF THOSE EPISODES.
I have never been this disappointment with a live action before. Yes, the look and feel of the drama was great but I feel that the script just DESTROYED IT.
Ugh. Anyway. I'm going back to sleep now and wallow in misery. That was a waste of my time. Well, at least I enjoyed the eye candy that was Doumeki's character (although he was too expressive/talkative for the original Doumeki :/) Also, he looked like Jun in some angles. A manlier Jun...*wiggles eyebrows* 8D
(one of the very FEW Douwata moments of the drama ;_; *sniff*)
On a slightly better news: I LOVE 'Aitai'! :D Suga Shikao's songs for xxxholic are really awesome! 19sai from the 1st season of the anime is my fave. <3
