The 90s X-Men animated series this ain’t. Incredible looking animation, dramatic character moments and sweet ass-kicking action. It’s all you’ve ever wanted from a good, super hero cartoon. But this isn’t just a cartoon, it’s anime. Madhouse’s X-Men series’ first three episodes have found their way to Youtube and can be watched with fansubbing here. Beginning with the death of Jean Grey the series then follows Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Beast and Professor X to Japan where they investigate the abduction of Hisako Ichiki.

Of the first ten minutes I watched the series exemplifies all the tropes you’d expect from anime, lots of yelling that’s for sure. But the action and drama are intense, I’d expect when this show crosses over and is dubbed for American audiences all of this awesomeness will be edited down. So catch it in all it’s Japanese glory while you can.

Also keep and eye out for anime adaptaions of Wolverine and Iron Man also from Madhouse due to hit G4 this year. Watch the first ten minutes of X-Men below and let us know what you think. Will you be trying to catch the Japanese version online or will you wait for it to make it’s American debut?

New Teaser For The Iron Man Anime


With the Iron Man anime set to air next Friday in Japan, MADHOUSE (Death Note, Trigun) has released a new teaser commercial for the show. While it doesn’t explain what the story is, it does show Iron Man in action and doing some moves. The animation looks all right to me and I’m slightly interested to see how they will handle story.┬áThe anime series is set to run for 12 episodes and will air in America on G4 some time next year.

What do y’all think about the trailer? Any of you interested in an anime version of Iron Man or do you think this will be crappy? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
