Manga Review: X, Vol. 5: 3-in-1 Paperback

I've finished "X Vol. 5 3-in-1" by Clamp.

The fate of the world as at stake in this lavishly

Reads R to L (Japanese Style).

X, the epic series from CLAMP, is now available in this deluxe collector’s edition. The pages have been recomposed in the original right-to-left reading order and restored to the highest quality. Each volume contains three of the original graphic novels, along with gorgeous, full-color illustrations never before published outside Japan!

Duality is a fact of Kamui’s prophecy-driven life, but he’s not the only one — as the battle between the Dragons of Heaven and the Dragons of Earth heats up, the warriors begin to realize who their opposite numbers are. The members on both sides of the conflict all have their reasons for wanting to save the world or destroy it, and the greatest of those is love. For the sake of loved ones long lost, and of those still living, decisions are made that will move heaven and earth.

My Review:

I highly recommend this series if you enjoy action, deep friendships and long-standing feuds.  This omnibus editions are worth the cover price because it is quite thick and well made with gorgeous never before seen illustrations.

In this volume we see interesting fight scenes, touching and tender scenes between partners and friends and friendships are strengthening.


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
