The Sirenix arc premiered in Turkey this week. Apparently, Turkey broadcasts shows with dual language options, the other being English. That means some fans have seen the English dub now.
A couple fans have been posting the English season eight episodes online. To watch “The Light of Gorgol” (Winx season 8, episode 9), click here. I haven’t seen “Into the Depths of Andros” (Winx season 8, episode 8) yet.
I’ve also seen a few clips on YouTube, though most of them have been taken down already. Not surprisingly, the uploaders have been avoiding/ignoring the scenes with Aisha and Nex together in them. Sigh.
Not that it matters because based on “The Light of Gorgol”, what feared would happen did. Thanks to Elinor Vanderburg‘s inexperience, Marc Thompson’s meathead voice, and 3Beep’s direction, the scenes between Aisha and Nex feel silly rather than romantic. They either had not enough emotion or the wrong kind.
Feel free to watch the episodes and judge for yourself. I just know I’m disappointed, and I’m sure this won’t prove to anyone that Aisha and Nex are a good couple.
