I liked this video very much. It completely follows the Marvel Wolverine character and gives a most indepth look at love, life, motovation,and abilities. It also has plenty of action,heroes,villians, and twists to keep you interested. I would highly recommend this video to fans of the Wolverine character.

Ever notice how some of the animated superhero shows have better stories than the big budget live action movies? I think this animated Wolverine series is better than either of the live action Wolverine movies (and I like both by the way). The story line is highly entertaining, the characters are interesting, the animation is good, and the action is well done. This is a two DVD set, so there is a lot to watch. Thankfully, the series has a beginning and an end- no cliffhanger. Just be sure to pick your language and subtitles before you start or it will automatically go to Japanese.

I was really disappointed by this series. I first watched the XMen anime, which I generally liked. It wasn't amazing but it was reasonably good. Based on that, I picked up the other animes and watched them in order (Iron Man and then Wolverine). Iron Man was a little lacking, and I initially enjoyed the differences in Wolverine based on the first few episodes.

Beyond those first episodes, however, the series really started to drag. The story was fairly lame, and the action scenes got to be pretty tedious and boring. Wolverine was generally unphased by any attack against him, and the motivations of all the other characters was so one dimensional that it was hard to really have any interest in them. They seemed to exist solely for the purpose of being collateral damage since Wolverine is basically immortal.

I can't really recommend this series to anyone. The past week that I have been watching the show I have honestly been dreading it, but wanted to power through. It became a chore. Everything after the 4th episode (Omega Red) felt really tedious to me, especially everything with Hell Road.

Of all the X-Men, Wolverine is the one who's proven successful at carrying his own weight outside of the team books. I think this is also confirmed by the anti-hero's stand-alone movie and another on the way. Japanese animator's Madhouse and Marvel Entertainment bring us the superhero's very own 12-part anime TV series to DVD. It's based on Frank Miller and Chris Claremont's successful 1982 storyline as its framework.

Wolverine's girlfriend, Mariko, is snatched by her father Shingen. He is the leader of a Japanese crime ring. She is promised to a man named Hideki Kurohagi for an arranged marriage. Wolverine embarks on a mission to rescue Mariko from the clutches of her father and battles several different adversaries along the way.

The character of Logan and his alter ego in the "Wolverine" Anime Series is distinct from other depictions. He appears younger and not as rough around the edges as he's portrayed in the comic books and movies. It feels like we are taken back to see how he was in his youth. Maybe that was the intention of the animators and writers of the show.

There's plenty of action and violence to keep fans of Wolverine and the X-Men satisfied. The anime style also moves things along at a breakneck speed. If you already love the character, then this series will give you something to tide you over until his next big-screen adventure in "The Wolverine." It may actually give you a hint at what's to come since the movie is supposed to be based on the same story arc this animated series is.

Bonus material include three featurettes entitled "The Marvel Anime Universe: Wolverine Reborn," "The Ferocious Anti-Hero: Wolverine Defined," and "Wolverine Meets X-Men." The first two are around nine minutes long and delve behind-the-scenes of the series and the character. The last featurette is around 30 minutes long and spotlights the production crew of the show.

The "Wolverine" Anime Series provides a great vision of the character in the popular Asian artistic style so many people are fans of worldwide. It gives viewers an alternate take on the character and his world than we get in the "X-Men" and "Origins" movies. 12 episodes clocking in at 284 minutes and a few featurettes will make this a worthy buy for enthusiasts and consumers.
