X: Complete Series - Classic
Kamui stands alone at the crossroads between salvation and Armageddon. Destiny demands that this tormented young man decide the fate of a world he no longer belongs in. Torn between rival orders of superhuman warriors, the time has come for Kamui to choose his side. Either he fights with the Dragons of Heaven – fights to save civilization and the two friends he swore to always protect, or he must draw swords alongside the Dragons of Earth and deliver a death blow to the human race. Whatever his choice, there will be consequences. Friends will change. Friends will die. Life will never be the same. There’s a last time for everything. That time is now.

This series begins with a young man named Kamui Shirô, who returns to his former hometown and meets up with his childhood friends, Fûma Monou and his sister, Kotori. Kamui does not want to be involved with them again out of fear that they would be hurt in the upcoming battles in the series. He is joined by a group of friends, who like Kamui, are also spiritualists, and wield incredible powers.
This series was done by Clamp, who have also worked on anime such as Rayearth and Chobits. The characters should look familiar to fans of Clamp, and if you are a fan, you definitely have seen or read this series. It is true that the manga is unfinished, but the anime certainly has an ending. And I mean an actual ending, not an anime ending where it just leaves the viewer hanging. The director is Yoshiaki Kawajiri, who directed Ninja Scroll and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. When I heard that he was director, I immediately purchased this series; he's that good.
There is also a movie of X as well. The movie is way too short to accompany all the characters, and is downright violent towards the characters. The final battle of the movie made me feel so bad to the loser of the battle, unlike the series, which has an ending I can totally accept. The movie was also made before the series, and looks worse than the series, ironically. Do not watch the movie; it just is completely inferior to the series. Also, the English dub for the movie is completely different than the series. The characters voices do not match up at all, and are absolutely terrible. Speaking of the English dub, it is really good in the series. Anime veterans like Wendee Lee, Steven Blum, and Crispin Freeman are in this show.
This collection is rereleased from the Pioneer license, and is now under Funimation's label. All 24 episodes are included in this collection, as well as the OVA episode, which is on the final disc. Overall, this is an exceptionally good series, and you get to feel the characters' emotions. Also, there is implied boy's love, so be careful if you are against that, but the characters are way too pretty to object against it anyways.
