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.

Amazon.com

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

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.

I debated over and over about getting this because of some of the reviews. But then most of them did say it was decent and if you're an X-Men fan you'll appreciate it, so I gave it a chance. It's definitely not bad. But it's not as good as let's say, Wolverine and the X-Men. Things did drag out a little, but that's something that often happens in anime. The only two things that bothered me really were that Storm's eyes were brown instead of the normal sky blue color and that Emma Frost was watered down. She should have been more herself. I loved how she was portrayed in Wolverine and the X-Men. All in all, this is still good, so I don't feel that I've wasted money on it. I do say that I'd recommend this to X-Men fans because it's definitely not a complete failure. However, this is all my opinion, if someone doesn't like it then that's them. I hope that this was helpful, if even a bit.

I'm a comic nerd. I've watched every X-Men show ever. Bought this expecting it to be epic. Started out boring and ended extremely boring. Felt more like an anime telenovela. It has become one of those movies that will sit on my shelf and collect dust up and until one of my friends asks to watch it.

Sony did pretty well with this short mini series. Its pretty entertaining. Madhouse of course always does awesome on the animation. I recommend picking this up it should less than 10$ by now its a nice thing to have in anyone's collection

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).

This was a solid story broken down by episode. The story was a multi-episode arc that took 12 episodes to tell. The story is solid and the X-Men though anime (I am not an anime fan) were the same X-Men we all have grown to care about and love. The story takes place right after the Phoenix saga and Scott is still recovering from the loss. I won't say anymore, I don't want to spoil it for anyone. But, needless to say, I enjoyed every minute of the show. I would definitely buy more if they became available.

Ralph.

Let's just say that if you love x-men and anime, then you'll probably enjoy this too. The animation is beautiful and crystal clear. The story is pretty solid and nicely paced although it needed a tiny bit more work, other than that it's still better than some of the crappy cartoons you see on American networks now.

I love Anime. I love Marvel Comics. I really thought mixing the two together would be gold. I couldn't help but be disappointed. They were ok but something was lacking and I'm just not sure what. They were beautiful to look at but I think something int he story got lost in the translation. It just wasn't as good as I had hoped for. The X Men anime was probably the most disappointing of them all. X men is my favorite comic so I had really high hopes. Instead of telling a familiar tale they pulled something unfamiliar out of their butts called the U men. If the bad guys were Magento or Apocalypse or someone else more familiar this would have been so much better.
