* DistancedFromCurrentEvents: Cause of several publication hiatuses during the initial run of the manga, and possible cause of the current hiatus as well. Thematic elements like the decapitations and seismic disturbances bore coincidental but unsettling resemblances to real-life events such as the Sakakibara murders and the Great Hanshin Earthquake, leading to the series being pulled from publication repeatedly. CLAMP denies ExecutiveMeddling was responsible for the 2003 hiatus, stating that they themselves made the decision to cease publication as they were convinced the planned ending would not have been socially acceptable ''at that time''. The global climate around urban terrorism and national security may have been a major factor in that decision.

Added DiffLines:

** Or hell, just the fact that the manga never finished. It's the ultimate "what could have been" because we don't even know how it ends.


* WordOfGod: [[spoiler:Seishirou and Nataku]] are dead. Deader than disco. They won't be coming back. Also, Kotori's hair reminds the artists of Udon. Really.

* WordOfGod: WhatCouldHaveBeen: The story was originally conceived by Ohkawa as a tale of a group of warriors fighting for justice, but those plans were left in DevelopmentHell. Only later they came to fruition, mixing with influences from Creator/GoNagai's ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'' and Creator/ShotaroIshinomori's ''Genma Taisen'' to give birth to ''X''.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Good luck finding a new copy of TheMovie. It was last known to be released in 2001, by Creator/MangaEntertainment, ''before'' CLAMP's hiatus on the manga, and there hasn't been a single high-definition release. Tellingly, Blu-ray.com doesn't yet have a page on it, while other anime that hasn't yet been released on Blu-ray such as ''Anime/TheSlayers''[[note]]Its movies and OVA's did get a Blu-ray release in 2015, and the site considers the series separate from the later two 13-episode seasons[[/note]] have by that point.

* HeyItsThatVoice: More of a HilariousInHindsight if you're a fan of the Digimon Frontier dub, in which the voice actors of [[Creator/SteveStaley Kamui]] and [[Creator/CrispinFreeman Fuuma]] play long lost brothers. However, in this story, Fuuma goes from being neutral to bad to good rather than his path in X. Bonus points for the voice actress of [[Creator/MichelleRuff Kotori]] playing their only female teammate.
** Kamui is also [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Captain Hitsugaya]]

** Paraphrasing Ohkawa, '' Kamui and Fuuma are more than friends. They used to be friends, but they are definitely past that point now. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Please, Mr. Interviewer, don't refer to them as friends, that's not correct]].'' Oookay then.

Added DiffLines:
