An amazing series and an example of good storytelling
27 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

I read X about two years agao and saw the movie. I loved the comic but was appauled by the movie. I thought to myself if they could make a series out of the comic that would be amazing. 2 years later my wish was granted. X tells the story of kamui Shiro and his destiny. After leaving tokyo 6 years earlier he returns and is greeted by the people known as the dragon of heaven and another group the Dragon of Earth. He is told that he has two futures one as a dragon of heaven where he would save us from destruction and the other as a dragon of earth which he would anihilate the earth. If you hated the movie check this out. The story is so much better with more characters and not all the characters die like in the movie. The animation quality is superb too. Don't pass up X
