Wolverine, Cyclops, and a core group of Marvel Comics' venerable X-Men head to Japan to prevent a mutant uprising in Marvel Anime: X-Men, a stylish revamp of the long-running franchise that's strong on action, if less so on plotting. That's an unfortunate situation, especially given the brand's history of complex and mature storylines; here, the action hinges largely around the capture of Armor/Hisako Ichiki by the mutant-eugenics squad the U-Men as part of their plan to create a mutant super-army. From there, the story splinters into subplots involving the Inner Circle's Emma Frost and Mastermind, as well as the rise of a mysterious condition affecting mutants across Japan. The disparate elements never quite jell into a cohesive story arc, leaving much of the storytelling weight to rest on the numerous action sequences, which are plentiful and animated with kinetic power by the animation studio Madhouse, which partnered with Marvel for X-Men and three other franchise revamps (Iron Man, Blade, and Wolverine). X-Men is unfortunately the most lightweight of the quartet, suffering from weak characterizations, dull antagonists (the U-Men, while unpleasant, are second-string villains when compared to the operatic heights of Magneto, among others), and some unfortunate anime renderings, most notably on Storm, Jean Grey, and Emma Frost, who are built along decidedly titillating (and therefore sophomoric) lines. Sadly, the final episode suggests that the second season of X-Men would introduce some of its classic heels, but it remains unreleased at this time. The two-disc X-Men set includes both the original Japanese audio track (with subtitles) and the English-language dub, which features Scott Porter as Cyclops and a host of veteran voice-over talent, including Steven Blum, Travis Willingham, and Michael Sinterniklaas. The set is rounded out by a handful of making-of featurettes, all driven by interviews with the animation team. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

The X-MEN are reunited following the death of a teammate and are summoned by Charles Xavier to Japan following the abduction of Hisako Ichiki. There, they confront the U-MEN, a lunatic cult that steals and transplants mutant organs to further strengthen their own army, and the battle for justice is on.

I am an X-Men fan.

I've been once ever since the Animated Series premiered during the 90's.

Since then, I've collected comics, movies, games and any other items related to the Marvel Heroes.
When I learned an Anime was being made based off the comic, I wasn't sure of what to expect.
I felt, if it was done correctly, it could end up being just as good as the old 90's series was.

After watching all the episodes, I can say that while I was rather disappointed, I don't think it
was bad at all. The voice acting ranging from Steven Jay Blum to Jennifer Hale is well done,
and the designs look fairly interesting and awesome. This is clearly the best sounding and
best looking X-Men series yet.

The only downside, and the biggest one, is the story.

Without spoiling much, the X-Men are summoned to Japan to investigate the mysterious kidnappings
of mutants there. The story, like a lot of Anime, is slower paced, and takes awhile to really start getting to the point. Lines are repeated like a broken record, and characters beat you over the head with ideas and thoughts you just heard previously, just in case you weren't paying attention. The main villain was a big surprise, but he's not as mainstream as say, Magneto, so the average viewer may not even grab interest from him. And the newly introduced X-Man, Hisako (Armor), ranges from tolerable to unbearably loud and annoying. I get that she's supposed to be the rookie member with a cocky attitude (Similar to how she is in the comics) but even Jubilee knew when the time came to get
serious and stop screwing around. Geez.

Been waiting for this to come out. Normally I prefer anime in Japanese however when it comes to an American comic/cartoon, it just wasn't the same hearing their names with a Japanese accent. The animation was very clean, all the characters were portrayed how they should be. Very well done. No problem with seller. Would buy from again for sure.

At first I didn't think I would like it... However, I was completely wrong. This is a great show and had to buy it. I was disappointed that they didn't do a new season, but this one... It started slow, but came full circle. This isn't your run of the mill X-men either, but a new kind of X-men. The lead is still Cyclops with Professor X as the teacher... Storm, Wolverine, Beast, Emma Frost, and Armor (junior X). I wish there were more, but I do believe you will enjoy it...

This is a well done anime using the Marvel characters in a traditional story. i felt it works and is fun. The series all of which I have do a good job and are entertaining. I like the differencess in the anime take on the characters and it gives you a new perspective on the characters. The show is fun and I hope they do more in the future.

The Japanese animation brings the character of the X-men alive, the story will question the viewers - and lives behind puzzles of what had happen in Japan, the story will slowly reveal in time in the second DVD. If you are an anime fans, you will need to watch every series and moment to fully understand the story behind and it will reveal the 'why and how' in time. Based on the review - " the action hinges largely around the capture of Hisako Ichiki ( a young Jap girl ) just how is she related? There is new enemies called the "U-Men" as part of their plan to create a mutant super-army. Further on, the story goes deeper, with Emma Frost.

Spolier: Take note - in the first movie clip; Jean Grey has perished, and Cyclops last seen Emma Frost in the battle. How does Emma Frost come into the picture? Follow by the Inner Circle's Club and the rise of a mysterious condition affecting mutants across Japan. the X-Men encounter the fanatical anti-mutant group, the U-Men, and discover what was important enough for Xavier to bring them back together. The answer is something that could potentially bridge the gap between mutants and humans, or tear the two species apart forever.

Take note - the Xmen Series will stretched into a full 12 episode Anime, and after watching the last episode, the second season of X-Men would introduce our favourite old arch enemy 'magnetism' but it remains unreleased at this time. Stay tune.

My summary The action and the characters animation & voice over are very well rendered. I will watch the Wolverine & IronMan in time as well. To all X-men fan, try to watch a glimpse of the clip, it is different from the 90's animated X-men.

I really wanted to like this series, but just couldn't. The art is excellent. The voice over is very well done. The action, when there is action, is fast and brutal without being violent; meaning it reaches a middle ground that will be suitable but satisfying for a wide audience. What is wrong then? The problems are in the pacing and story. The series really should have been about half the time, as there was a lot of material that could have been cut without hurting the story at all. There are some sections that just seem to drag and other sections, such as Cyclops mourning, that are repeated far too often. It does not help that the story is predictable and unoriginal. There may be some new elements, but any fan of the X-Men will have already seen most of this content in some shape or form. Overall, there are just too many better ways to spend your time and money to recommend this to anyone but the most diehard of fans (and they will be most familiar with this material).
