The storyline was a good twist to the comic storyline.

I swear this show has been redone so much and all of them go back and forth they get younger and they get older.

The kind that in the real world could only be achieved with truly industrial quantities of silicone.

This is an okay series if you can stand the confusion.

The Good: well, it's an X-men cartoon.

The Bad: it's an X-men cartoon made for adults. Poor, simplified animation. Silly writing outside the X-men cannon. Incoherent plot ideas. Stylistic ideas borrowed from horror Anime like "Legend of the Overfiend".

The Ugly: An obsession with breast-size that makes you want to sing, "thanks for the mammaries."

The first thing that strikes you about X-men Anime series season 1 is its garishness.

It is visually loud. Big things spend a lot of time on fire, or thrown great distances, or getting zapped into oblivion in simplified animation. That is bad, but it's only the beginning.

Before long, you notice that the model-sheets don't really know what to do with the characters, or that they are doing all the wrong things, Wolverine looks like a midget wrestler with claws longer than his forearms; Scott Summer's eye-beams are like a flamethrower. Those things would be bad enough, but then, the makers of the series turn their attention to women and things take a freudian turn involving a bevy of beauties with big-honkin' boobies.

Seriously, watch an episode of this series with your friends and you can play a game where every time Storm or The White Queen speaks, you say, "my breasts and I think..."

Once you get over the model-skinny girls with beachballs on their chests, you have to contend with the animation.

Our brethren in Japan, are amazing animators, no one even approaches them, but with so many different styles to choose from, you wonder why the people who put this together chose to use motifs and ideas borrowed from Japanese erotic horror anime. With few exceptions, everything is dark.

Like many other long time X-Fans, I'm afraid I found this one an immense disappointment. I know it's easy to fall into hyperbole, but in all honesty, this may well be the single most boring cartoon I've ever seen.

On the plus side, on a purely technical level the animation is superb. About as subtle as a tattoo of a flaming skull, but technically superb. Oh, and almost all of the chicks are drawn with giant racks, too. And when I say "giant", I really do mean giant. The kind that in the real world could only be achieved with truly industrial quantities of silicone.

Actually, aside from the fact that everyone keeps their clothes on, the style of animation here is very much in the mould of high-budget R-rated anime. I'm not just talking about the spandex-clad chests - there's also the splatter and the gore. Measured purely in terms of screen time, the amount of violence in this show is probably about the same as you'd find in any other superhero cartoon. However, the feel and the texture of that violence is very different from what many viewers will be used to. There's something positively gratuitous about the way it's drawn. Indeed, it could almost be described as erotic... If that's your thing.

And yet, despite all the violence and the chicks with the giant racks, the truth is that this has to be one of the most profoundly boring pieces of television I've ever seen. The problem is... Well, let me explain with a story.

I remember back when I was about seven years old and I thought Star Wars was the greatest movie ever made. I also thought that because the best parts of Star Wars were the space battles, wouldn't Star Wars be even better if it was just one long space battle?

Of course, I now know that it simply doesn't work that way.

Very few series get the chance to be produced by a foreign studio. Even fewer turn out to be truly fantastic. It is this honor that befalls the Japan produced X-Men series. Action packed and very good, fluid animation, X-Men is, once again, leading the pack in good television.

Awesome, the kids really loved it. I enjoyed them seeing old school X Men shows I used to watch as a kid.

While I enjoy the artistic style of this anime, and have no issue with the way in which the characters are drawn (some have issues with the female atnatomy) it is not as good from a story stand point as it could be. I have been watching several different iterations of X-Men because my daughter is inmterested in animation and we both enjoy the X-Men. It seems taht they keep recycling the same story line across the titles. Unfortunately It is the same here.

I enjoyed it. It was nice and short and the sequences of the movie were climatic at points. Setup of the shots and design were unusual for Anime...looked a little like screenshots here and there.

This is a great X story. If anyone knows how the Japanese imagine their heroes and how the approach this genre then you get that flavor here. Great anime and good story. We should have more!!

If you are a long-term fan of the X-Men (I'm a fan since about issue 130 of the Uncanny X-Men, first appearance of Dazzler), you might not like this particular team configuration or the out of continuity characters and story arc.

The animation is cute and fun, with everything you'd expect in anime: babes in tight clothes with impossible figures, lots of moving background and flashes in fight scenes and teen to adult themes (and dialogue).
