Amazon.com

Wolverine (2010), the second installment in the four-part reinterpretation of Marvel characters for Japanese audiences, makes the transition much more successfully than Blade. The series is based on four graphic novels created by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller in 1982. Logan/Wolverine heads for Japan when Mariko, the woman he loves, is kidnapped by agents of her father, Japanese yakuza boss Shingen Yashida. He plans to marry her to the slimy Hideki Kurohagi, cementing the alliance between their gangs. The path to true love seldom runs smoothly, but it's rarely this rocky. Wolverine has to battle not only scores of yakuza thugs with hi-tech weapons, but an increasingly deadly succession of mutants. Kikyo can produce a katana (Japanese long sword) from his wrist, much the way Wolverine extends his trademark claws. Omega Red, a Russian biomedical experiment gone wrong, attacks with metal tentacles and a Boris Badenov accent. The gigantic automaton Vadhaka presents an even graver threat. Wolverine gets some help from his friends, especially the slinky assassin Yukio, who fights with a ring-shaped throwing knife, and a cadre of rebel slum-dwellers. Their fighting skills may be formidable, but Wolverine fans know better than to expect a happy ending. Director Hiroshi Aoyama keeps the action moving and choreographs the many fights with the requisite panache. The result is a violent but interesting fusion of Eastern and Western fantasy that recalls Wolverine's catchphrase, "I'm the best there is at what I do, but what I do best isn't very nice." (Unrated; suitable for ages 14 and up: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

(1. Mariko, 2. Yukio, 3. Kikyo, 4. Omega Red, 5. Asano, 6. Girl--Min, 7. Vadhaka, 8. Koh, 9. Hell Road, 10. Shingen, 11. Kurohagi, 12. Logan)

Product Description

This series pays homage to Frank Miller's legendary Wolverine graphic novel from the 1980's. The series begins when Mariko, the love of Logan's life, is forced back to Japan by her crime-lord father, Shingen. Logan vows to get her back at any cost. He is plunged into a chaotic world of corruption and violence, forcing him to team up with young assassin, Yukio, to battle their way through the Japanese criminal underworld.

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD Review: "Wolverine" Anime Series August 22, 2012
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, engrossing animated Wolverine series. December 29, 2013
Format:DVD
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.
