WHAT?! W..wh...what?! Did NOT expect this at all! I'm excited but also a bit turned off.

I suddenly miss Ohara's voice as Yuuko Anime cry

That sounds like fun! I imagine the special effects in creating the different spirits and stuff will be very cool.

That's ... interesting. It definitely wasn't a title I thought would be a good fit for live action. I really hope they have a good budget for all the effects and costumes they're going to need to make it look good.

That said, I do love the xxxHolic manga. Hopefully they learn from the anime's mistakes and don't mess around as much with the order of events.

This...should be interesting. xxxHolic isn't something the first thing I think of for live-action adaptations of anime and manga, but I love CLAMP and xxxHolic, so I'd like to think this would turn out all right.

Wonder if they would leave in the references to Tsubasa or omit them like in the anime?

Interesting but not sure how they will pull it off. Watanuki was quite the animated character.

This will definitely be interesting to witness...the real question will be if it is any good.

That and 'will there be a way to create a CGI Mokona that doesn't look like crap?'

If they try putting this off as a supernatural gothy tales from the crypt/twilight zone type of show this could be awesome (the manga was designed for episodic mini-stories). But that's just me being optimistic about this. Either way I'll give it a try, but I've watched too many J-dramas to get excited.

Wherever will they find people with freakishly long legs to be in this?

Wow, I was not expecting this in the least! I think this is the fist CLAMP series to ever have a live action, am I right? So looking forward to seeing what they make out of this!

Oi, you stole my line. That's what I was going to ask.

Although, it isn't just their legs. Their necks and torsos are also bizarrely-proportioned.

This will be to my knowledge the first tv series, but Tokyo Babylon had a live action movie way back when.

Kinda. When Magic Knight Rayearth got some videogames, they had some live action girls be Hikaru, Umi and Fuu into the TV adverts.
