I am a big time Wolverine fan. I have been for years now. I did like the series, but I have some issues with it too. There is lots of action and plenty of Logan putting bad guys into a "world of hurt". We get to see some cool characters such as Yukio cause some havoc. What bothers me most, however, is how Logan is portrayed but I will explain.
Prior to watching this series, I watched the Anime X-Men series (which is awesome). In that series, they did a great job with the voices and the dialogue matched very well with how the characters, including Wolverine, are portrayed in the comics (or at least how they were in the 80's and 90's, I haven't collected in about 14 years). Wolverine in this series probably has one of the worst voice overs they could have chosen. It just doesn't match with the Logan that we know (or any of the voices in other animated series he has been in). He is smaller framed and thinner in this series too. It was almost as if I couldn't see him as Wolverine until he popped his claws out.
The voices in general didn't come nearly as close to the quality they found for the Anime X-Men series. I know Anime in general has some lousy voice overs anyway, to the point where it is kind of funny and that is one allure of anime. It doesn't ruin the show, but it definitely does detract. Again, part of my problem is that they did it right with X-Men so I feel as though they could have done it right here.
Overall, it's a good series and it's pretty cheap here. Wolverine fans should certainly consider getting this.
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.
