Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men, Blade from Mad House anime studio


The four anime series are Iron Man, Wolverine, Blade, and X-Men. Sounds good to me. I’ve always been a fan of Marvel.

Wow, that’s pretty cool. I’d like to watch some X-Men, used to watch that a lot as a kid.


#3

This was quite a huge announcement at Comic-Con. Not only is anime returning to G4 but we get MARVEL animes. This is beyond what anybody would ever have expected. Next year is gonna make your nerd side explode.

Here’s a trailer from the Iron Man anime that was shown.

I expect lots of bitching coming from comic fanboys “They look tooooo Japanese!!!”.

LOL! So true!

I might as well post the Iron Man and Wolverine teasers since I’m here.

WTF is wrong with that Wolverine teaser? That just looks bad. I’ll be checking it out since I love Wolverine as an X-Man, but it looks terrible. Iron Man looks great though, so at least there is something to look forward to.

:laugh:
I think it’s a mixture of the fact that Madhouse is animating it for the Japanese audience, along with the fact that we, here in the States, already have a clear concise and biased preconception of how Wolverine should look.

Looking at at it non-biasedly, it actually doesn’t look half bad from my perspective, certianly not the Wolverine I’m use to looking at, but overall, I think it might turn out to be rather cool.

I understand that there can be big differences due to animation styles, but I didn’t like to whole vibe to the clip. I was excited to see a different perspective on an old character, but this seems more fantasy/supernatural than action/mutant. My preconceived idea of Wolverine may just be getting in the way, and I will still check it out. It may be great, and I hope it is, but my first instinct is that it will be bad.

One of the times Marvel and Japan did something we got this

So I’m saying be happy if Wolverine does not have a Giant Robot.lol


#12

So, wait… G4 is going to run Marvel CARTOONS ? Good for them, I guess.


#13

Yippee. Comcra… er, Comcast will run Americanized anime. Leave it to them to screw it up…


#14

The Iron Man looks fantastic! The Wolverine looks a little strange, but I’m willing to give it a chance. I’m a long time reader of comics and seen these characters change a lot over the decades, I’m more than willing to give a new perspective a shot.

G4 has been a burning ship for its lifetime so if this fails, we won’t be surprised.
I really want this to be good though. I’m glad anime has come back there in some form.

I am looking forward to these even though I heard mix things about Iron Man and Wolverine. I am going to save opinion for what I see when it airs next month.
Also I know someone mention 10 months ago japanese spider-man series. I didn’t see that mention but I just did. I wanted to mention believe it or not Marvel’s web site has episodes of the series subtitled on there web site.

So it was correct it’s going to air after Comic Con.
