Things finally come to a peak in the 8th volume of x/1999 as Kamui finally makes his decision between Heaven and Earth. Unfortunately, no matter what his choice is, the results of his decision will have horrible results.

Decent volume, and I like some of the new characters they introduced. However, I really feel like CLAMP rushed the Fuma & Kotari part of Kamui's plot here. It feels like the film handled Fuma and Kotari after Kamui's decision much more gradually then the manga is, which is saying something considering how rushed the movie was.

Ah, the story is getting much better at this point. Not only do we get a certain long awaited showdown, we also have a major turning point in the main narrative. Also, Sorata continues to be made of win.

Une série culte par un studio culte. C'est dark, c'est sexy, c'est romantique, c'est sanglant, c'est CLAMP !
