Synopsis

At the millennial edge, the concluding battle for humanity's future is staged. Kamui Shirou's destiny has been decided as he returns to Tokyo to face his ultimate challenge. The Dragon of Heaven, defenders of the Earth, stand ready to protect the world from the Dragon of Earth, the seven angels of legend, who embrace the devastation of the planet to bring about its purification. Now Kamui must decide which side to fight for although he finds the idea utterly unappealing. It isn't until realizing that his two childhood friends, Fuma and Kotori Monou, are in grievous peril that Kamui decides to step into his fated position in the climactic struggle of the Year of Destiny: 1999.

This movie is horrible. It is so bad that it's entertaining. If you've never read the manga or know nothing of the characters then it will make almost no sense. If you have however it's kind of amazing to watch it all pushed together. It's almost like watching a movie condensed into 30 seconds. Only it's a long overly complicated manga plot condensed to movie length with lots of barely explained fight scenes.

It's CLAMP, so it's pretty. This is a given. But that's about all it has going for it when it comes to technical merit.

I'll try to be objective without stating the conditions, my mood and my preferences when watching this movie. I'll just point out that when I wrote this review, I considered the fact that it is actually a summary of TV series compiled of 26 episodes and made in 1996 by CLAMP, a highly appreciated group of manga-ka.

How to define what is a good anime? You consider the story and its development as a main point, the characters' originality and description, the animation and the drawing (although this can be an subjective point of view) and the sound as a whole - the voice acting and read more

Don't make the mistake I made by watching this before the TV series and manga, which are both so much better than this disgrace of a movie!

The story is squashed up into this 1 film which is an impossible achievement to make it any good, because everything is rushed and there is near to zero on character development as well. The ending wasn't satisfying either.

However, I will say this, the art is beautiful, and seeing as this is CLAMP, that is to be expected, and for it's time it's gorgeous to look at and even today it looks really nice, but that's about as good read more

SPOILER WARNING !! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

Well , as a fan of the X series I must say I was really disappointed on this .
Mainly because they tried to fit all characters and a long and intricate story and character relationship in a 1:30 hour anime . There's only a blink of what is going on in the story , if you aren't familiar with it you won't understand anythiing at all and even if you do know the basics about the series you'll most likely be puzzled on how they shoved the story aside and turned this into a bizarre 'ending' for read more
