Get ready for a second collection of awesome mecha action with the anime hit XAM'D! Akiyuki isn't the only one who's become possessed by the mysterious power that is Xam'd. Seems his friend Furuichi is also filled with the dangerous energy. But while Akiy

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll be Xam'd February 2, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, not enough resolution May 13, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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.

Anime Review

X'amd: Lost Memories

What an odd anime, I really, really like X'amd, but no matter how hard I want to, I can't love it. What keeps X'amd from achieving true greatness, is its lack of development and explanation of the world of the story. For while there are many wars, governments, battles, and creatures, the show never takes the time to give you any substantial explanation for what any of them are, or why they are significant. As a result, it is always hard to feel for the characters, and the gravity of the situation they are in. The potential for true drama is wasted most of the time. Instead we're just expected to believe that war and hatred is bad, and peace and love is good. Unfortunately this is far from the first anime to have that message, and others have done it far better.
This particular story of good and evil begins with Akiyuki, an average, everyday high school student. But the anime universe seldom allows average high school boys to average for very long, and by the end of the first episode, his island home is attacked, and his body becomes the host of a mysterious being known as a X'amd. He is then saved and spirited away by a mysterious girl who has all the answers (But never gives them to the audience), she takes him to the postal airship she lives on, and introduces him to the rag tag group who also occupy it, and who will be responsible for teaching him the life lessons he'll need to learn in order to overcome his status as average high school boy, and help save the world.
It's a shame this story doesn't rise to become something unique, because it always feels it has the potential to do so, if someone would just explain what the heck a X'amd is, besides some sort of generic supernatural guardian of the world.
