:: X ::Reviewed By: Straight-Cougar
Fun Factor: B+
X TV series, is an elaboration and somewhat of a revision of the OVA X-1999. Whatever the movie failed to explain, or seemed to have rushed thru is clarified in the TV series. One major shortcoming of the movie X was the fact that there was practically no character development. However, the series goes into detail about each character and shows in an in-depth perspective of every character and their motives and desires as a "Shin No Ryu" and a "Ten No Ryu." (Dragon of Heaven and Dragon of Earth for you non Japanese Speakers. =D) The animation is absolutely beautiful, and the story is very well plotted. The music is a little reminiscint of that of the movie, however it doesn't stand out or scream excellence. The series is also very entertaining to watch, and very dramatic at certain points. (Note: This is a dramatic series. There is zero comedy.) Overall, the series is great and hats off to the subbers. =D
