The story takes place in 1999, the Year of Destiny, and the beginning of the end of the world. The future of the universe rests on one young man, Kamui Shiro, who must destroy either the Dragons of Earth or the Dragons of Heaven - two opposing armies. He alone must decide whether humanity should be destroyed to create a purified universe, or whether it should be protected to preserve civilization. Two oracles, the sisters Hinoto and Kanoe foresee the coming of the Dragons and predict opposite outcomes. Each sister gathers strength and ammunition to insure her own vision for the future. However, neither sister realizes that there is one man who has an even greater power than the Dragons, and that ultimately he will determine the fate of the earth. Which sister will prevail and how does Kamui fit into their struggle? The answer to this question will forever affect humanity. Written by
The character Shougo Asagi never existed in the original manga, and was created specifically for the film. He takes the place of Kakyou Kuzuki, the bedridden Dragon of Earth dreamseer that appears in the manga and who later appears in the television series. Furthermore, Shougo's power over water was originally Yuto's power in the manga. See more »
I'm sorry. I guess I'm no good at helping with things like this. You know, I never did find anyone to love. I wish there was someone who would cry for me when I die.
[her strength fades, and her final line is heard in Kamui's mind alone]
Kamui... promise that you'll protect the ones you love always!

I am a huge admirer of the graphic novel series this adaption is built upon and really can recommend X-1999 by CLAMP to everyone for it truly is a masterpiece.
This film, however, was a complete waste of time and I cannot believe that CLAMP actually agreed on summing up the immense plot of the comic books in to one film that is not even two hours long. Because in my eyes it is not the apocalypse aspect which makes the series so absolutely amazing but the detailed characterization of each of the characters, which was here left out completely.
Even the artwork is unable to compete with the visual beauty of the original work.
This film left me completely unsatisfied!
