X is another manga series drawn by CLAMP,one of my favourite mangakas renowned for their work such as Chobits,tsubasa,Cardcaptor,RG Veda and more.

I will say this before I type anything else.The tv adaptation suck.

The story is about Shiro Kamui who return to Tokyo after a few years.There,he met with his childhood friends but he acted extremely cold towards them.Kamui has the power to either destroy the world or save it.And with this,he is given a choice.Join the Seven Seals and become Dragon of Heaven to save the world or Seven Angels and become the Dragon of Earth to destroy the world.

Kamui is the hero here,so I suppose you should know which group he chose at the end.

As soon as Kamui made up his choice,his world his turned upside down.It started with Kotori’s death and Fuuma’s change in personality.And the fight begins.

Kamui and his newfound friends started to battle the other group,and it is here where it started to stray further and further from the manga.Each episodes concentrates solely on one character,and I honestly hate it.It is not balanced at allIt was like trying to force us viewers into noticing their character development.It is not natural at all .Also,I think Seishirou died too fast.Yeah,the show is cliché,where good vs bad,but the action scenes are not bad,at least it is not repetitive.

The animation is pretty good for an anime that year.There are some scenes that are animated beautifully,particularly when Kamui visit Kotori’s grave.The scenery there is beautiful,but Kamui is even better.The music is good too,during the sad scene and action scene

Overall,X has its own flaws,but if you like bishounen series and some actions in it,this is definitely for you.You may have hard time trying to choose who is your favourite character.One thing is for sure,i dont want the manga to end like the tv

I definitely prefer the manga.The anime just lacks..something.CLAMP is my fav mangaka and as a rule, their works never disappoint.So,overall,i say it is pretty good for an anime for that year.

The manga has stop for so long now........hopefully after tsubasa they will continue X,but it seem like they want to to Legal Drug first.It will suck if all the sudden they make an announcement saying"We will follow the TV ending"

I love the anime but i cant find it anywhere that i can watch it. the manga is nice though but i seems to be stuck there. hahah I dun see it coming out anymore. It been soo long, will CLAMP continue? I am not sure. And also wad is the ending like? I saw the preview of the X movie, it is nice.

I don't like the end of this anime because Kamui has died and that stupid Fuma survived. And movie is full of blood but it has better ending.

I like the manga a lot(nuuu it's incomplete!), but the anime seems to lack something. The episodes are off-kilter, and the story progresses awkwardly, with too much focus on character development.
