Okay...I know theres a lot of people out there who don't know what anime is and there are people out there who don't like X, well if you don't like this movie, you don't like Anime. This movie (which I happen to own on DVD) is my favortie next to Akira. Many parents don't like these types of movies because there are so much amouts of blood and gore, but thats ahlf of what anime is, the other half is what the REAL anime fans think of it, I mean sure its still new but hey, alot of people still like Akira, and thats old, about 13 years old, but I think if you watched both of them one right after another, you'll like anime. Okay...I've watched lots of anime on tape and DVD....I have my I don't likes and I LOVES animes and this is one of them, that why I bought it. And sides, X is more understanding then most animes....like .... Vampire Princess Miyu, and its a lot better then Tenchi! Sure the voices are bad in english but you can change that with options. Well...I guess thats enough about my rantings...I just wanted to make sure that X getting the best ratings because its the Best!
