X was a pretty interesting series, which had pretty much all of the ingredients needed to make a classic, yet at the same time the ingredients sometimes don't seem to mix properly, making it miss just that last little edge.

Still, it has become one of my favorites, because it has exactly those things that appeal to me in an anime show: a good storyline with enough twists and changes, excellent animation, a great soundtracks and amusing and diverse characters.

Of course the series has CLAMP all over it, which shows mainly in the characyer design and story, both of which are on par of the average read more

This conflict has been addressed over and over again throughout history in century-old novels and vintage films, in addition to a wide splattering of anime and manga.

Recommendations

The main characters in the both seires are similar, both made by CLAMP, the story is similar to...
Two fighting factions, which members have supernatural powers. Many bishounens. Apocalyptic theme. Megapolis backgrounds. And very strange one letter titles, which make hard to find these animes on torrent trackers!

Opening Theme

"eX Dream" by Myuji

Ending Theme

"Secret Sorrow" by Kohei Koizumi
