x the tv series

X/1999 The Tv Show is an adaptation of the manga series of the same name by clamp and like before it focuses on the end of the world and the 2 clans that are fighting for the fate of Earth. 

It retains much of the plot devices as in the manga series like destiny and trying to fight against it. 

The romance elements are lot more prevalent, than in the movie adaptation since it could only really have so much story packed in. 

The subplots are somewhat more explained here for the reasons why characters have chosen their sides over the fate of the earth than so back in the movie. 

The action is ok and like before it has the anybody can die at any given moment trope. 

The animation like before is from Madhouse during their heyday back during the 2000s. 

The art and visual style is as good as ever. 

The music too is pretty good. 

Since its from the 2000s and especially since its from CLAMP and their notorious history of shelving and putting projects on hiatus its going to stray from the story but at the same time is also the most conclusive story as of yet for the series itself. 

Its a fairly long anime too and its not as condensed as it was when it was first released. 

Overall it was a decent adaptation. 

It gets 3 out of 5 stars. 

At this point since CLAMP finished cardcaptor sakura’s manga and wih  their grim’s fairy tale anime adapation coming out, now is as good as time as any to finally finish off their other projects
