It's really very hard to believe this is the Subaru from X/1999 the movie. I love the X manga, movie, and series but this just wasn't what I was expecting. I don't wanna hit the animations too hard because it was obviously made awhile ago so I'm just gonna steer away from that. The reason I got this was because I thought it would lead up to the big battle between Subaru and Seshiro that happens very shortly into the X movie. Well I was wrong, in fact, Subaru really doesn't seem like Subaru. He's a soft spoken supernatural investigator that lives with Seshiro (who is the actually the leader of the clan that rivals Subaru's) and his overly annoying twin sister. Although Seshiro does hint at being a bad guy in this but it never fully comes forward. The overall story is divided into two 45min episodes. I wasn't that entertained with them, Subaru was so not himself it was like watching an anime that had no connection to X/1999. If you've seen/read X/1999 you won't really gain or lose anything by watching this, but if you've got $10 and 95min to blow it's better than watching Demon City: Shinjuku or Wicked City again. The one thing I learned was why Seshiro killed Hokuto... it was because she's too friggin annoying.
