Editorial Reviews

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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun and colorful appetizer before the main course. April 27, 2012
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just amine, barely ironman May 9, 2012
By Xcon
Format:DVD
This is nothing more than a very typical and bland anime cartoon with Ironman thrown in. He could have been replaced with anyone and the series would be exactly the same.
I enjoyed the Xmen anime that came out along with this, it was Xmen blended with anime and it was almost a good as any xmen animation ever and certainly different.
Ironman on the other hand is just thrown into japan, surrounded by pointless characters that are staples of every anime ever. The pointless reporter and comedy side kick that has to be inserted in each episode, painful.
And the any other marvel stars? Well just when I thought there was hope, they made the worst incarnation EVER of one of the best heros ever.
The series looks good, not great. I don't think there was one overall start to finish great episode. The whole thing was just too standard, I didn't feel like I was seeing an addition or different take on Ironman, they just stuck him in a regular, subpar, unoriginal anime cartoon.

Watch instead- most marvel knights releases, Astonishing Xmen, Xmen anime

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad addition to the Iron Man Collection April 14, 2012
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright. July 30, 2012
By Bro
Format:DVD
I'm gonna make this short. It seems that these Marvel animes are following a formula. The Protagonist goes to Japan, something happens (It's not Godzilla this time), choppy dialog in between, lots and lots of lazy animation when talking, some cool battle sequences, 12 episodes later...it's over. This isn't a bad anime, but my advice...save your money. Get it from the library, but hey..if you're an anime lover and you don't care about a good story...this is for you. I will say this about it..the coloring is fantastic, the character models are really cool and the animation is awesome! (With the exception of the close up on the face/ talking animation. So in short, it's ok.

When it comes to anime, Madhouse has the right formula. Iron Man lends itself perfectly to the anime style of visuals and storytelling. As the great man himself says, " 'Nuff said."

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.
