This series highlights some of the wonderful reasons why you shouldn't make an anime for a manga that isn't finished.

STORY - Honestly, X has a pretty decent story, even if most of its themes are far from original. It is, essentially, another battle between humanity and the planet they live on, of man against nature. 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. Mostly-unexplained supernatural powers and angel/demon parallels, both rather characteristic of CLAMP, aren't very new either, and really, even combining the two doesn't add read more

After the first few episodes I didn't like this anime. I thought the main character, Kamui, was too mean and selfish. I started to watch the show because I am a fan of shounen ai and someone had recommecomnded it on that basis, but I hadn't seen any hints of shounen ai 3 episodes in. I was about to give up on the show, but something convinced me to keep watching. Damn am I glad I did!!

This is one of the BEST animes I have ever seen. It's hard to explain without spoilers, but I'll try. First, the fact read more

Around 2007, I watched a few episodes of this show before circumstances pulled me away from it. I always meant to watch it, but it faded from memory until recently when I had an urge to watch something older. Much of what I felt from that brief glimpse back then, is the same as my full gaze right now. Despite how unbelievable some parts of the story are, I still knew I was watching something a little special.

X is mostly Kamui Shirou’s story, faced with the decision to become a Dragon of Heaven or Dragon of Earth. Should he become a Dragon of Heaven, one read more

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

Both series tell a rather dark story about a secret battle, involving 14 participants with supernatural powers, fighting to death for their ideals/wishes.

Both deal with apocaliptic themes and have tragic stories.

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2
Each show deals with friends turning enemies, and deals strongly with death. The fate of the world is determined by the willingness of sacrifice.

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!
