About this site

The idea of maintaining an X site was in my head for quite a long time before making this site. First of all, because it is without a doubt my favorite manga series; and second of all, because I feel that there is a shortage of truly good X sites, particularly since the disappearance of sakurazukamori.net's With A Slash. It took a long time to get off the ground until now, due to things like lack of time or just plain laziness. Finally I decided to start out small and just let it grow according to how much time I can devote to it. And so it grows, in fits and starts. ^^

About the content

My aim with XTC is to make primarily an informative site, since nearly all of the old general information/analysis sites are now gone. Another thing is that I feel there are a lot of misconceptions abou X, both because of "accepted fanon" being taken at face value, among other things. It is not my goal to create either a media or fanworks archive.

One last thing that I must mention is that this site is essentially about X the manga, and although I will mention them in here, it is not about the movie or the more recent anime series.

The name

Any references to mind-altering substances are possibly not coincidential, and were actually put into the webmistress' mind by Nanase Ohkawa herself, who mentioned ecstasy as one of many possible origins for the name of the manga.
