Product Description

Tony Stark arrives in Japan to help implement his goal of world peace by building the Arc Reactor, a carbon-neutral power plant that, once operational, will be able to provide limitless (thus free) energy to the world. Set to retire his Iron Man persona, and about to mass-produce a line of Iron Man armor known as “Iron Man Dio”, Stark’s plans are derailed by a series of high tech Mech monsters. Zodiac, a top secret organization funded by the terrorist group A.I.M. is out to disrupt the Arc Station, steal the Dio armor and put an end to Iron Man. The Armored Avenger’s fight is only just beginning.

Amazon.com

Marvel Anime: Iron Man is an appealing episodic reboot of the venerable Marvel Comics franchise, and part of a wider anime collaboration between Marvel Entertainment and the popular Japanese animation studio Madhouse. The live-action Iron Man features serve as the launching point for this 12-episode series, which finds Tony Stark (voiced by Heroes' Adrian Pasdar in the English-language dub) in Japan, constructing an Arc Reactor station that will provide limitless worldwide energy, as well as a new prototype armor, Iron Man Dio, which will allow him to gracefully exit the superhero business. Both plans turn sour with the arrival of the Zodiac terrorist organization, which commandeers both the Dio suit and the station for its world-domination plans. In his pursuit of Zodiac, Stark is pitted against the group's giant robot warriors, as well as a long-lost figure from his own past. Rendered in the bold and often striking animation by which Madhouse has earned its reputation, Marvel Anime: Iron Man is also action packed throughout its 12 episodes, and hews closely to its comic legacy thanks to writer Warren Ellis, who weaves appearances by established figures from its canon like Pepper Potts, Chika Tanaka, and even Wolverine (voiced by Pasdar's Heroes costar Milo Ventimiglia, who reprises the role for the Wolverine anime series) into the story. If there's any complaint to be had, it's the relative facelessness of the Zodiac, which pale in regard to nefariousness when compared to such veteran Iron Man villains as Ghost, Whiplash, or the Mandarin. Otherwise, Marvel Anime: Iron Man is a visually exciting, fast-paced, and welcome addition to the Iron Man universe. The two-disc set includes both the English dub and original Japanese audio track (with English subtitles), as well as a smattering of making-of featurettes, including interviews with the animation team and Japanese cast. --Paul Gaita

You should know that Iron Man is my second favorite super hero of all time. Make of that what you will, but obviously I am going to show some favoritism to Iron Man products. Let's just be honest here.

Now that that's out of the way, lets settle something. People seem to either love or hate anime. I love anime and have been watching it for a very long time. If you love Iron Man, but hate anime, don't even bother watching this.
A lot of people on various websites have trashed these Marvel anime just because they are anime. If anime isn't for you, then these aren't either.

If you do like anime, then you already know that anime is slick and visually stylized. I has a certain feel or Japanese quirkiness to it, that will be lacking elsewhere. This anime has that, but brings the fun of centering on a popular super hero that I know and love. The artwork is nice, crisp and colorful. It's very pretty to behold. Of course like a lot of animation in this cost cutting age we live in, there aren't 30 or 60 frames of animation. Now that things are done on computer instead of hand drawn, companies tend to skip as many frames as possible and often show many static scenes to cut time and expenses in production. That's just something you have to deal with now. Anime purists are aware that old school hand drawn anime had a much more fluid sense of motion to it and a lot less of the shortcut method.

None of that has proved to be a bother in the Iron Man anime. That is partly due to the fact that the episodes are fairly fast paced. Iron Man is facing dangers very soon. This is only a 12 episode show and that could be looked at as a good thing. A lot of anime will do a 26 episode season or series. Some good much longer and some go way too long.

I watched the series when it previewed on G4 and I found that it was not bad. The animation was quite good, and the females in the series are properly proportioned.... you know what I mean X-men.... There is intrigue, betrayal, and action in every episode that I watched. There was even a cameo from another character in the Marvel universe that one will not see coming. Even though I gave it 3 out of 5 stars, I will still purchase this for my Marvel collection.

In my humble opinion, still the best anime project coming out from the Marvel & Madhouse collaboration. This one & the X-men series are my personal favorites. Great story & jaw dropping animation. It's ironic because as much flack as this project got from the get go, growing up a comic fan in the 80's to mid 90's we always fantasized to see something like this. And now that it's finally here, fan boy's still find negative things to say. There's just no pleasing some people but to the uninitiated, I recommend giving this a chance. It's really well done.

I enjoyed this series as much as the X-Men and Blade anime series as overall it gives you what you basically want,your superhero kicking butt and lots of actions and with a decent storyplot for the most part.Some people were disappointed with this anime release sets of the Marvel universe characters though why is hard to say for some.

Basically if you're unsure of getting this check out a few episodes if possible online to finalize your choice.Still for most Marvel fans I'm sure they'll be more then happy to get these sets.

I watched this anime with the subtitles and Japanese audio. I really ended up enjoying the new take on Iron Man. The story has a good arc story line and each episode is well written and animated. I feel that this series shows what can be done with a comic book character. The results are really surprisingly good. It is well done entertainment. The series will get repeat viewings I hope for more shows from this partnership.

This is a different production of Iron Man for taking place mostly in Japan and the public knows that Tony Stark is Iron Man.
It pays homage to how Iron Man came to be and how much Stark changed since then. The series has a good balance of
action, suspense and humor (Stark's mainly). A few surprises within, including one appearance from another Marvel hero
(name withheld) and a history lesson or two.

my son is an Iron Man FREAK!!!! He can watch it all day and you get like 14 episodes so it's money well spent. Stories are good, animation little choppy at times, but very cool and even I can watch it. The graphics are good and characters are well iked by my 3 yr old. He knows War machine, Zodiac and Tony Stark. He's very astute and he loves it!!!

Why isn't this out on Blu-ray?
That is what i just logged in to bitch about!!
None of the marvel animes are being released on Blu-Ray it seems.

DC is pulling the same stunt with Young Justice, and Adventure Time will only see DVD. It's ridiculous!! i can't buy a low rez version of something i've seen in HD.
