So I got the last two volumes of xxxholic season one for review. I know the show has some fans on this board. My question for you is: is the show consistently annoying, or is it just those last two volumes?
Seriously. It's not getting a good review from me. The designs are like CLAMP X-TREME, and I don't find them attractive at all. The little demon girls that live with Yuko are annoying as hell. Mokona is a pain in the ass. Most of the stories bored me (except the one with the artifact procession, and that was only interesting to me because I'd recently read about them).
And Watanuki...dear God, Watanuki. I hates him, precious. He's more high-strung than a meth addict on a 2-week binge. In this episode: Watanuki drops his napkin on the floor and begins screaming until he faints from sheer hysteria! And in the dub he's even shriller and more horrible than the sub!
I'm sorry, xxxholic fans, but I just don't get it.
