Highly recommended for its huge cast of well-defined, unique characters, epic plot, profound philisophical and emotional topics, its tie-ins with other CLAMP works (Tokyo Babylon and CLAMP School Detectives), and most of all, its breath-takingly gorgeous, detailed, delicate artwork.

X/1999 isn't for everyone. There is a good deal of violence, nudity, homoeroticism, and dark, fatalistic themes. It certainly isn't appropriate for anyone under 13. You should also know that the series runs to at least 18 volumes, and it isn't done yet.

I loved this book and it really made me want to read on in the series. I got so hooked to this series, but by reading this book. The main characters are so elaborate and descrptive in this story.

Just thought I would let people know this is an incomplete series that as of now is permanently on hiatus in Japan. The anime is great but is rated 16+.
