| Confusing!
X/1999 is a great manga, it really is. I bought this movie as my introduction to anime, luckily I didn't let this movie ruin anime for me. X is the story of a boy who has the power to choose the future by choosing a side to fight for: the Dragons of Heaven who want mankind to continue to exist or the Dragons of Earth, who want mankind purged from the planet like a bad disease. Personally I would've chose the Dragons of Earth. But enough about me. The move is a short 90mins. Not NEARLY enough time to squeeze in a huge story like X. The most frustrating thing about X is that once you're introduced to a character they die within 10mins or so. The animation however is beautiful, and the girls who created the characters did an excellent job designing them. The violence is brutal when it needs to be which is often times a must for me. But this movie just doesn't flow well. Maybe if they would've shoved an extra hour in this there would be less confusion. But now that I've seen the series and read the manga I've got this movie down to a science. But that doesn't raise the rating. I still love the ending to this movie, and I love it even more now because the ending to the series sucked. If one watches this movie about 5 or 6 times they may start to get it a little more. If one is looking for a dark depressing movie this should be on the top of their rent list right next to Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (which out shines this movie in every way imaginary). Overall, if you've got the patience to watch it a few times go for it, but the only thing I watch it for is the ending.
