I watched it and I simply LOVED every bit of it. The beginning and the part where she gets the bottle are SO much better than the manga version (in the manga, Ioryogi pulls the bottle out of his back-pocket, WTF? Not very climatic), the anime version is so much more epic, LOL! And the beginning it’s like she comes down to Earth like an angel, very cool!
Loved all the voices, Kobato’s one is so adorable (not as desperate as shown in the PV xD But I like her desperate voice anyway). Every now and then Ioryogi’s voice would annoyingly remind me of Kurogane, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
GREAT animation, the colors are so vivid. That is why MADHOUSE OWNS the spot of best animation studio for CLAMP in my ranking. I loved the SDs parts, the comedy is just as the right level (the “DOBATO” and “DABADA” at the end? Awesome). Soundtrack sounds very nice too.
What else? The OP is lovely, although I have to agree with my friend Sakura84-chan, it’s rather simple. The ED is even simpler, with the bottle just spinning around, but the 3D looks neat.
I loved the bottle too! Although sometimes it looked like it was much smaller than in the manga xD
I approve the script changes (*cough* written by Ohkawa *cough*), giving her the bottle right at the end of the episode is a good way to hook whoever is only watching the anime and hasn’t been following the manga. Much better than 9 episodes of Exams.
I was surprised the grandma wasn’t really XXXHOLiC’s grandma! Haha! I do hope we will get to see the rest of the crossovers from the Exams. though (Asou and Hinata, Misaki, Tamayo, XXXHOLiC grandma herself, maybe she will be in the New Year’s episode, etc).
I simply LOVED it! You feel so great when you’re watching it, it’s so calm and easy-going just like reading the manga. This looks so promissing!
GO MADHOUSE GO I MISSED YOU!
