So, there's some exciting news today.
If you live in the UK, and would like to watch the new series of the mighty boosh (beginning in a week! Series 2 woo!), but don't have access to BBC3 (looks at Steve), then don't fear...
...because you can watch online! And the first episode is up already!
However, if you don't live in the UK, then you can't watch online and must shake your fist at your computer screen in a futile manner while shouting expletives.
*cries* *woe* Why can't I watch it here?! *wail* 's not fair! *mope*
But...I was able to console myself with something, maybe not better but, different. The xxxHolic movie trailer is out! And I have to say, it has gotten me all excited to see the movie now. It seems to be well done (which it should be, considering it's a movie rather than a TV series). I looks dreamlike/trippy which is intriguing and should make for a similar tone to the manga. Yet I can't get over the fact that Yuuko doesn't really sound like Yuuko should sound. Her voice is just much higher than I imagined...although I kind of imagine her to sound like Cate Blanchett as Galadriel in LOTR only better, so...
But I am very happy with the fact that Watanuki is voiced by the same person as Albert in Gankutsuou, because he was very good in that.
My favourite part of the trailer though, has to be Watanuki acting like, well, Watanuki. Everything sounds serious and spooky and we just see clips of Watanuki spazzing out in the background <3 I really have high hopes for this film now. There wasn't much of the Tsubasa film in the trailer, so I can't judge that, but hopefully it'll be good too.
Ahh, I really hope someone subs it, and soon after it's been released. I'll die if I have to wait for it to be licensed and released on DVD. (hopefully I'll be home, or close enough to going home that I don't care, when the sub (if there is one) comes out, because then I won't be under my self-imposed ban on downloading anime and music).
And...my parents are flying in tomorrow to visit me! I can't wait! It's the longest I've been without seeing them in my whole life, even though it's only been a few months. Wheee!
