I thought my husband's head was going to explode when this series came to PSN. He wanted to see it so badly, but the cost per episode, for a rental, was just more than we could justify. He was thrilled when the series came out on Blu-Ray.

Unlike some anime series that seem to go on forever, this series comes to conclusion after season two. You should, however, be aware that the seasons do not stand alone. Season one ends on a cliff hanger, and if you only watch season two you will be beyond confused. (Honestly, you may still be a little confused if you watch both seasons.)

The story has a lot of classic love story elements in it. There is a lot of action and a lot of conflict, but for me the center of the story is a tale that has been told over and over again. Best friends are in love with the same girl, but she's always known where her heart belongs. The side stories are as compelling as the main story; they are stories about the different ways we love each other. A mother's love for her child, an older sister's love for her younger sister, and the sacrifices we are willing to make for the ones we love the most.

If you are looking for a cute and fluffy anime, this is not for you. Xam'd is not afraid to break your heart by killing off a character they made you love, and in the end, not every character gets to live their happily ever after. There was something about this anime, although I'm not sure what, that reminded me of Eureka Seven.

Overall, I don't know if this is one of those series that you just HAVE to own, but it is well worth watching. I'm pretty sure that we never watched less than three episodes in a sitting, and we finished the second series in a weekend. It's hard to turn off, and even when it ends, you'll find yourself wanting more.

Xam'd: Of the Lost Memories is an exceptional anime, one of the best I have ever seen. It is currently available on Netflix and, at the time I'm writing this, is available for instant viewing. I say that Xam'd is one of the best anime I have ever seen, and I am completely serious about this, currently it ranks in third place on the list of my top five favorite anime - and honestly I think that it is technically better than Record of Lodoss War (1st place), but my love for this anime sometimes approaches religious devotion, and so I can't rank Xam'd as number one. I will warn you from the beginning that Xam'd is somewhat difficult to get into. The story throws you into the middle of a truly fantastic world with very little explanation of what is going on, and then expects you to pick up the clues on the way. Although it offers a significant number of clues (way more than Ergo Proxy), I imagine that many viewers will have some trouble catching up and figuring out what is going on. Trust me when I say that it is worth it to push through. So, on to the review:

Overall: 10/10

As I said, Xam'd currently ranks third in my top five anime list. So, I can safely say that I have seen very few anime that I enjoyed more than this, and I don't think that either of the first two are technically better than Xam'd, but due to either subject matter, or loyalty, they remain my top two. At its core Xam'd is a love story, and it is the best kind of love story - a real one. Nowhere in this anime do you find the cliche `love at first sight' or `wedding after two weeks' plots that are so common in romantic tales. Xam'd is the story of two young people who do their best to remain true in their love for one another through a wide variety of trials.

This was a close call, but some of the animation in the final episodes was really bad. Not the main stuff - but the backgrounds. Some of the flying ships were simply yellow blots - they were either intentionally left unfinished to save money (as often happens when a series is near the end) or forgotten about (unlikely.)

The fight between the doctor and commander was uninspiring and unbelievable. Many of the sub-plots seemed rushed to conclusion "it's the end - quick - slap something together to wrap these up!" We even have people miraculously show up that were killed off. The conclusion of the main plots was, in my opinion, a flop. It's as if there were two episodes missing between the final two. Or that the final episode was just so badly edited. It was still a decent conclusion, but it could have been so much better.

The writers of Xam'd had an excellent concept going when tying off the series, but it feels like it was cut too short, or that they focused on elements that were largely irrelevant. Xam'd is almost entirely story driven. If I had to classify it, I would say it's more of a drama than an action series, which is fine if it's done right.

Being more of a drama series than action series, I personally felt there were too many conflicts left open. As for the few conflicts that did come to a close, well, they were "closed" far too abruptly and had little resolution. Also, there are too many questions left unanswered about key characters in the series. It's hard to elaborate on this point without spoiling too much though.

The character design felt rather lively, as did their personalities. It helped the story feel a little more believable and involving, even though I felt the need to fast forward through a good 1/3rd of the series. The animation was crisp, and the series has some extraordinary artistic design.

Xam'd could honestly use a follow up to close off the story. There are a lot of key plot points that needs to be explained, rather than being left in the dark. Regardless, I recommend watching Xam'd to anyone, mostly because of the level of originality behind the story and content. Comparing Xam'd to the other animations I've seen, it truly is in a genre of it's own.

Due to the lack of a proper ending, as well as there being what feels like too much filler content, I had to knock off a couple stars. The series's saving grace is the overall story ( not including the ending ), and the characters. The first half of Xam'd was truly the best of the series. The second half, however, felt like it was starting to stray off base and lose momentum.
