X is an apocalyptic anime based on a manga, or Japanese comic, created by Clamp, one of Japan's most popular manga writing groups. X follows the story of the main character, Kamui Shiro. Kamui has various psychic abilities. He knows that these abilities will make him an important part in the forthcoming battle at the end of the world. However, how he will influence the future is still unknown. To fulfill his part in the end of the world, Kamui returns to Tokyo. He has been gone for six years and many things have changed since he was last there. Tokyo is now the city where the end of the world will take place. However, the end of the world and how it will play out is not Kamui's main focus. Instead, Kamui is worried about protecting his friends, Fuma and Kotori, whom he has not seen these six past years. As much as he wants to stay by his friends' sides, Kamui and his powers are soon drawn into the battle for the world. Kamui discovers that there are two main groups involved, and each wants a radically different outcome. The group the Dragons of Heaven has been charged with protecting spiritual barriers. These barriers will hold off the end of the world. The second group, the Dragons of Earth, wants to destroy the barriers and ruin humanity. They think this will bring about a cleansing of the Earth. Seeking only to protect his friends, Kamui eventually joins sides with the Dragons of Heaven. Unfortunately, nothing is simple at the end of the world. It soon becomes apparent that it is Fuma's destiny to oppose Kamui. Fuma joins the Dragons of Earth and the two old friends begin fighting against each other. As the two sides continue their struggle, many secrets, hidden plots and links to the past are revealed. Meanwhile, Kamui and Fuma continue to draw closer to an ultimate confrontation.
