So am i because i happen to have this small trailer of X/1999, and it links to the manga and the series and it completely has no realtion to the OVA/ so called Movie. there is an acutal movie but i dont know if it is here in the US.
Another thing, in the series, Kakyou did escape to see the death of Hokuto because he saw it in his dream. and that is how he is sleeping most of the time in the series. Its kinda the same incident as with princess and watshisname nephew of the wind guy.
And JHU Battousai what do u mean actual series, is there two or sumthing becuase i have both the movie, the series and a little trailer that links the manga to the series but not the OVA.
Ok, what little "Trailer"? I wanna see this. All the OVA is is a series "teaser". Its entitled Episode 0: An Omen. As a note of interest, when Kamui is "pinned" by Fuma (by now Dark Kamui) in episode 12, he is tied up by cabling. In episode 0 however, you see how it was in the manga - he is pinned to the slab by shards of glass through his body. I wonder why they changed that for episode 12 if it had already been established in episode 0.
If you think the OVA is the 100 minute movie that makes very little sense to someone new to the show, then you're wrong. That is X/1999. Its still based on the same manga, but its modified some parts of the story to make it fit a movie better. What the OVA is is a 25 minute "prequel" episode that began the series, to leave X TV with an odd number of episodes, 25.
The movie has little to no relevance or relation to manga whatsoever. In terms of comparison, it sucks. Still an ok movie to watch though.
