Hi.

I recently just asked a friend to lend me his copy of X. But when I was finally going to watch it, I noticed that 1 DVD was movie, and the others the series.

So, I just wanna ask which one I should watch first? Movie or series?

Thanks.

Depends on which one you'd prefer to watch. They are both different tellings of the X story but other than that, have no connection so you can watch whichever first.

Here's a summary of what they're like from Wiki (but personally, I'd prefer the manga over both):
Feature film
The X feature film, directed by Rintaro (Captain Herlock, Doomed Megalopolis) and co-scripted by Nanase Ohkawa, premiered August 3, 1996 in Japan. The supernatural thriller focuses on the roles Kamui, Kotori, and F?ma play in the Apocalypse, reducing the Dragons of Heaven and Earth to peripheral characters. Even though the abbreviated story fails to place the characters' action in the proper context, the film is praised for its dreamlike atmosphere, powerful imagery and visually engaging action sequences. The film is considered a technical masterpiece, but it lacks plot and character development.

TV Series
The television series is considered a better adaptation than the feature film. The 2001 incarnation makes use of its longer running time and episode format to explore the original mythos and works the characters' back-stories into the narrative through the use of flashbacks.

I watched the movie when it was first released then the series upon it's release, the series was better but the movie was good too, but watch them both it's best to have started with the movie first because the series is better hehe x-japan sings the ending song to the movie ^_^

Hrmmm... The movie and the series are different entities in their right; both have different contents and endings, so I guess it's fine with whatever you watch first. ^^

You should read the manmga 1st. the anime and the movie have different endings you'll be much more satified if you read the manga watch the anime then the movie... i think that what i did anyway....

i would also recommend to read the manga Tokyo Babylon

like the one above- read the manga first to get the main story. it doesn't matter if u watch the series or movie first. they all tell the story but with differences!
hope that helps

the series first then the movie ... the movie is a little confusing and it doesnt explain the plot. its more like an alternative plot to the series.
