Added DiffLines:

* I have a question about the [[BlindIdiotTranslation very badly translated]] PSN version (I'm assuming that it's an english dub, since the entry on the MisBlamed page for this show says so. Correct me if I'm wrong) and Sentai Filmworks' DVD/Blu-Ray release of the show. I know for a fact that the DVD/Blu-Ray release includes an english dub. Is the PSN dub included on the DVD/Blu-Ray release, or did Sentai Filmworks (hopefully) give the show a redub? (Again, if I got any details wrong, please correct me.)

* How does [[spoiler: Akiyuki, isshu and Raygo]] all survive? Turned to stone, crushed and blown apart was not enough? They really stretch the [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief suspense of disbelief.]]
[[spoiler:Akiyuki's]] appearance in the end, like it's nothing, is a complete deus-ex-machina. [[spoiler: Nakiami told him that one day he will hear his name again, bringing him to life.
9 years later, he just resurrected like it's nothing, without even fulfilling Nakiami's prophesy. The ending is a complete asspull.]]

ALSO, FRIDGE LOGIC : [[spoiler: If Akiyuki gets his name back, does that mean the Hiruku emperor loses his name? Or is he now embedded with Akiyuki? Both are the same, light and darkness. And regardless of that, if Akiyuki has managed to dismantle the Emperor's wrath, why did Nakiami had to sacrifice herself? Akiyuki took on the darkness and conquered it, the 1000 years of darkness is over.]] So, why? Explain show, explain.

** It's fairly simple: Humanforms are people embedded with hiruko (whether artificially or naturally) who can change form; they become the "monsters" and it's why Nakiami [[spoiler: wants to save them, because inside, they're human]]. Xam'd are humanforms who are more human-like and can think, which seems to be the way they stay alive and not [[spoiler:crystalize]]. People turn into humanforms when they're embedded with a hiruko. And what chick are you talking about? I think you need to watch the show a bit longer; around the 20th episode, things get a lot clearer (coincidentally ([[OrIsIt or not]]), this is also when the plot really kicks in).

*** The more thought I put into this, I realized I wasn't understanding it either, until I started comparing it directly to Blassreiter. Much like in that show, those who receive hiruko have problems maintaining their mental faculties. Much like how in Blassreiter, Gerd fell victim to his own insecurities and lost his mind, so did Furuichi. And much like Gerd, Furuichi realized that once he had no chance of going back to a normal life, that he had little motivation to maintain his grip on reality, and even less motivation to live. The difference is that Furuichi has one last moment of clarity, and kills himself before he can lose his mind again.

**I saw it like this. life and death plays a very large role in xam'd. This was the only path he had, he couldn't form his xam'd mask, he couldn't promise to live. if he couldn't do that then he was awaiting death. He just took the fastest way he knew. this could be just me however.

**** This troper has watched the entire run and is on his second rewatch, having yet to find a significant or plausible answer.
** This separate troper has watched the show once and honestly can't understand why you guys can't get it. It's fairly simple: Humanforms are people embedded with hiruko (whether artificially or naturally) who can change form; they become the "monsters" and it's why Nakiami [[spoiler: wants to save them, because inside, they're human]].

I think you need to watch the show a bit longer; around the 20th episode, things get a lot clearer (coincidentally ([[OrIsIt or not]]), this is also when the plot really kicks in). Also, just a question, but are you guys watching the sub or the dub? I've heard really, really bad things about the dub. So bad that there's even a mention of how bad the dub is on the main page. Maybe that's why you don't understand the story yet (I'm not trying to start a sub/dub war, just stating what I think/have heard).
