Product Description

Kamui stands alone at the crossroads between salvation and Armageddon. Destiny demands that this tormented young man decide the fate of a world he no longer belongs in. Torn between rival orders of superhuman warriors, the time has come for Kamui to choose his side. Either he fights with the Dragons of Heaven – fights to save civilization and the two friends he swore to always protect, or he must draw swords alongside the Dragons of Earth and deliver a death blow to the human race. Whatever his choice, there will be consequences. Friends will change. Friends will die. Life will never be the same. There’s a last time for everything. That time is now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Amazingly written anime ever! July 22 2010
By FantasyGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I watch a lot of anime, but this one has stood the test of time for me, it is still my favorite even after several years. I don't know why so few people watch this one, maybe because the original company that marketed it went under, but it is really a gem......this anime draws you in, the story is well written, the characters are awesome, it really tugs at your heart strings too, I cried, I laughed, you name it.......the fighting is a lot of fun in it too, it draws you in & keeps you riveted till the end......I think this is the best anime by CLAMP, with XXXholic following close behind, if you are a fan of one then the recurring characters you recognize are fun to see in another anime. If you are an anime fan you should check this out, or if you are not, then why not start with this series. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Tale of Love, Loss, and The End of The World Aug. 30 2010
By RavenRing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
15 year old Kamui returns to Tokyo after being gone for 6 years. His childhood friends Fuma and Kotori are very excited at his return, but are hurt and confused by his change in character. Rather than the kind and cheerful boy that they knew, Kamui is cold and quite. But Kamui has a reason to be moody - the day of reckoning is near and the Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven will battle to decided the fate of humanity, and Kamui must pick a side to join.

This series is, in my opinion, CLAMP's greatest masterpiece. X was the first CLAMP series I was introduced to, and has remained my favorite. To explain why this series is great, I have outlined the pros and cons below.

~Artwork - As with all CLAMP's work, the artwork and character designs are detailed and beautiful. Some of the characters look very similar to other CLAMP characters, but some are completely unique to X. Some of the imagery is very impressive, and with a wide range of characters (the Dragons alone add up to 14) and a wide range of situations leads to a wide range of different types of scenes that show CLAMP's creativity and imagination.
~Music - The music for this show is some of the best I've heard in any screen production. The main theme, Destiny, is very memorable and beautiful. I bought the soundtrack and Destiny is one of my top played songs, despite being instrumental.
~Story and Characters - X boasts a complicated story with complex characters. The cast of characters is large and many of them have their own story to contribute. The interactions between the Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven are quite realistic - even the people wishing for the destruction of humanity are only human themselves and this especially evident when they encounter someone from the opposite side.

~This isn't a very cheerful series - it is about the end of humanity after all. I don't want to spoil anything, so won't go into detail about any tragedies that occur. I thought that tragedy was essential to the story, but it was still sad and might make you cry (I think I did).
~I like having a lot of characters, but it did get a little confusing at times!
~Even at 24 episodes, this series wasn't quite long enough to fit all of the story into it. The manga is 18 volumes long, and still hasn't ended. I think that the anime creators did a good job of picking which things were cut, but it still felt a little rushed in some places.

Obviously, the pros far outweigh the cons and you should totally watch this series! This set is pretty cheap at $30, which is about half the price I originally paid for the series, so you are getting quite a bargain!
One final note: I watched this series in Japanese and the cast all did an excellent job. I haven't see it in English, so I can't say if it is any good or not. But I really liked the Japanese dub, so I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Series Aug. 12 2010
By Christopher Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Though this is a great series, there are enough gaps in the plot to prevent me from awarding a five star rating. The animation quality is above average and the Japanese voice acting is very well done. It is an addictive series as well. This series did exceed my expectations and I feel more people who like anime should watch it. But it is not for kids and it is not for novices into anime watching. I recommend watching Cowboy Bebop to get you into anime, then go for the more serious and violent series. (Last Exile, Full Metal Alchemist, and Ghost in the Shell being my favs)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great But Tragic Series Of Friendship, Sacrifice, AndUltimately The Choices We Make Feb. 2 2011
By Rich(アニメとゲームが優先!!) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The series is both exciting and it's storyline and action but also tragic and provoking as well. The series shows us that the fate of the world and humanity is about to be decided on two factions with members who wield incredible powers and abilities, one faction believes that humanity is a lost cause and must be eliminated to save the world the other faction believes that humanity can learn from its mistakes and doesn't need to be destroyed to save the earth. The ultimate fate on this point will fall on one man and the choice he makes on whether to save or destroy humanity and the consequences of those choices as well, the series characters are all endearing and tragic as you actually can see both sides and their reasons for their choices in this conflict and you actually feel you can empathize with both groups and during their battles you will feel sadness on the fates of both faction members. The series is part of the Clamp Manga universe but is probably one of their more darker series released, the animation and soundtrack are great and fit the series well and the voice cast for the subbed and dubbed actors/actresses did a great job in their character roles. The series is somewhat bloody and violent pretty much so pretty much not for younger kids, the set itself is different from the previous released version that was out a few years ago in that the series is onto four dvds instead of the eight but the video quality is very good so no worries on that part. The extras as always are pretty much the trailers and intro/ending songs so nothing to really shout about, so if you're looking for a dark action anime or just looking for a great series here's one tho check out for your anime library....

5.0 out of 5 stars Anime Tragic Drama of Earth's Future being Fought by Two Pre-ordained Japanese Guardian Orders. Jan. 10 2012
By Nic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is an anime series from the accomplished & successful Yoshiaki Kawajiri, who is known for such animes as Wicked City, Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter-D, the Animatrix - i.e. some of the most well known & successful anime titles in the west.

The main characters have powers with different elements, as well as being able to leap and run from buildings tops to buildings tops. The action scenes are consistently great & epic in this way. The story also involves dreamseers, spells and other dimensions as part of the super-natural clash for the future of planet Earth.

While basic story is pretty straightforward it does have some interesting naunce also, as well as being a more character focused story, with a wide range of characters all with decently developed stories as part of the plot - in contrast to the Directors more well known purely action works - and has alot more depth in how things come together in keeping track of the whole story.

It is maybe abit more melodramatic & tragic in tone than it needs to be at times to tell the story, yet despite this, there are quite a few moments especially toward the end where the story matches it's melodrama in a very bittersweet & uplifting way! The action scenes and other supernatural things are always involving in each episode along with the extra depth provided in the story constantly rewarding as well. The Japanese voice acting is very good as often the case in animes, and the subtitles are fine.

As a fan of the Matrix, i notice quite a few similarities and ideas including visuals, so if you like that kind of anime feel to esthetic, it should be a rewarding & interesting watch overall.

X is rated 16 up & is abit more extreme than a kids cartoon. It is a Unique type of Anime in often being quite Kid type then very Adult in the same episode making X an artistically difficult Anime to easily categorise with all it's different character stories and moments - but overall, X is a well deserved if not widely known anime classic made by a Master of the form i think.
