It comes to no surprise to people that Marvel would have their best-seller Wolverine these recent years in another project. Personally, I checked this out not because of recent projects ie Iron Man's failure to attract audiences, but for likable purposes. I've always taken a liking to Wolverine as one of the more likable characters in the Marvel universe. I've seen pretty much all versions of Wolverine Marvel has thrown out: movies, TAS, comics, I was a bit curious how this would fare.

The story, while not impressive at all to me, tries to stay true to its roots. Wolverine and his whole japan outlook read more

Wolverine is a well known marvel comic. Of course, coming from only watching the movies and maybe seeing him on cartoon network a few times when I was young, I thought it would be pretty cool. What I was looking for was some action that had some anxiety against it - some good counters to the immortal man, and a solid story. While I guess you could call the story solid it didn't fulfill either of those goals.

Recommendations

The Mcs are both drawn into a world they initially don't want to be a part of. They both though adapt to it.
For a starter, both Wolverine & Batman are based on famous comic book characters, created respectively by Marvel and DC comics. The characters are also quite similar: both vigilante anti-heroes, who are struggle to cope with their dark past, while still keeping their human nature and will to do good.
The stories also follow a similar path: both protagonists are usually seen fighting against groups of enemies while trying to save or protect someone.
Overall, I found these two anime to be quite similar, not only in the characters are storytelling, but also in the mood they create and their visuals.
