Kamui Shiro is a young man who was born with the power to decide the fate of the Earth itself—a destiny he can barely bring himself to believe. But as other players in the prophesy begin to gather around him—the "Seven Seals," with the power to protect the Earth, and the "Seven Harbingers," who are fated to destroy it—he has no choice but to come to terms with his fate.

(What?! Nobody has reviewed this CLAMP classic yet?! Shame on you people! So i'll do it, but please bear in mind this is my first review....)

Story: Out of all of the series that Clamp has created over the years, X happens to be their darkest, most violent series to date. As usual, Clamp manages to create some unique, and interesting ideas, as well as some surprizes. What I also find interesting is the whole conflict between the Dragons of Heaven and Dragons of Earth. To me, it feels like neither side is simply the "good guys" or "bad guys". The Dragons of Heaven wish to read more

If nobody could ever hurt or kill anybody, then why would people become blinded, to the most important things?
- A Dragon of Earth, X/1999

I can't imagine why anyone could dislike CLAMP or X. You don't have to like X I suppose, but they must have something you would like. Also, you should really read Tokyo Babylon before this one. It is a prequel to this and is just as beautifully tragic as this one, as well as a few of the characters in there and their stories coinciding in X that you may not understand or get if you don't read it.

I'd recommmend this manga if you're into tragic, supernatural, fantasy & end of the world sort of thing. X/1999 has an amazing storyline (don't count the movie!)

I haven't read the whole manga but I have read certain bits, mainly bits I wanted to see, but still, in some ways the manga is better than the anime because they left out some parts like in the manga, there is a lot more gore & torture.

I do hope it'll be finished with the publishing soon, it's been so long (though not for me but in general.)

I love this series the most of all CLAMP works next is Tsubasa Chronicle. It might not be others like because of the tragic and violent events that happened through out the story.

About the story, I could score it as 10 since I love action, drama, supernatural, and end of the world theme. Well, the most is I love the story on how the main character, Shirou Kamui moves on accepting his destiny. Since, no one could accept such a cruel destiny on the near future. Well, I finished reading the manga and I find it interesting the most. I really hope that this manga read more
