Unhappy XXXholic

The first thing I wanted to know was how do you pronounce Xxxholic. Apparently, you don’t pronounce the triple X. It does make you wonder what you will find when viewing this series. What sort of images would a DVD with XXX bring to mind?

Well if you are expecting porn, you will be disappointed. Even if you weren’t expecting porn, you may be disappointed.

Kimihiro is an orphan high schooler on his own. One day he wanders into a store managed by a mysterious woman named Yuko. The store’s stock in trade is granting wishes. Kimihiro begins working for Yuko and so his adventures begin.

There are other characters who I won’t discuss now. I just want to review the fist disc, episodes 1-4. Episode 1 is not very interesting. Episode 2 is somewhat dark and thus interesting. Not much happens in episodes 3 and 4, except to establish Kimihiro’s relationships with other characters. In all, I am not impressed. The animation is standard and the characters are poorly drawn. Kimihiro’s character is too much of a twerp. But I am assuming that the first four episodes are just to set up the rest of the series, so I will watch disc 2 before deciding to drop it or not.

Any comments? Just remember, NO SPOILERS!

This show wasn't super exciting however i found myself watching more and more of it. I still haven't seen the second season yet.

I just finished disc 2, so now I have watched the first 8 episodes. Three of those episodes were rather interesting, but I watched the other 5 just waiting for the episodes to end.

Three out of eight. Not too good. I won't be continuing this anime.
