X: [FIVE]

» written by Wai Yung (Wayne) Chim [Discuss]

Synopsis
The two Kamuis finally awaken! Kamui has chosen to be a Dragon of Heaven, forcing Fuma, Kamui’s twin star, to become a Dragon of Earth. Battle between the two is inevitable, but not while Kamui is still unconscious from the shock of Kotori’s death. Subaru dives into Kamui’s dream to save him, as Fuma contacts other members of the Dragons of Earth - Kakyo and Nataku.

Review
In this volume of X, Kamui (Shirou) realizes the importance of trust in his comrades. The future seen in the dreams cannot be changed, but Kamui does not believe in destiny. He will be defying destiny in the volumes yet to come. While Kamui is still in the state of shock in the hospital as a result of seeing Kotori’s death, the other Kamui (Fuma), retrieves a dreamseer for the Dragons of Earth, Kakyo.

The Dragons of Earth start to gather as Kamui (Shirou) awakens from his slumber after Subaru uses his powers to get into Kamui’s mind and talks the chibi Kamui out of his bad dream. When the divine sword of Kamui was being sealed away, a light was unleashed and allowed all the other Dragons of Earth to know their next step.

It is said in this volume by Kakyo to Princess Hinoto, that the Kamui of the Dragons of Heaven cannot beat the Kamui of the Dragons of Earth. For the time being, it sure does seem that way. Kamui always allow his emotions to get in his way, while Fuma does not care about anything except his goal, which is to destroy all that gets in his way and start a new revolution as the Kamui of the Dragons of Earth. Now that everybody has gathered together… is the best action finally about to come? I certainly hope so!

The Breakdown
Please no more names! I do not want to hear anymore ‘I am Kamui Shirou’ or anybody who has been in the story from the start and introduced themselves already once. There is no need for more than one introduction and there certainly is no need to etch the names into our minds.

 

» The Pros
The story is progressing, but rather slower than I have expected.

» The Cons
Just how many times are they going to keep introducing the characters? It is like when the story progressed, we get a scene where everyone introduces themselves to one another again and again.

The last volume tricked me into thinking that the last battle will finally begin... the story of this volume is just another story build up, at times the show becomes every unentertaining.

» Recommend
7
The only reason I will recommend this volume is if you own all the others. Otherwise I would not recommend a what seems to be extension of a never ending character introduction loop.
