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. If there was ever a time I wanted to write a negative review it would be right now, but let us stay as positive as we can…

Only one more episode to go and it up to the next Marvel anime series, let me first say that my review is based on how I've watched this anime with some comparison with other animated series being shown in TV. I don't have any access to some of those comic books about Wolverine, so forgive me if there will be some inconsistencies with my facts.

Ok let's get started:

Story: fair number 6.

Ok, so this Wolverine is a Japanize version of the Wolverine we used to watch from various animated series, which by the way includes the movie. Literally, this is a totally different Wolverine, read more

First off, let me say that I watched the anime of Iron Man. I was quite disgusted the way they turned Tony Stark into some sort of low-class hero, by throwing around weird plots and giving Tony rather weak character traits. In my opinion, this is unacceptable when handling our favourite superheroes. For Wolverine, I feared that Madhouse Studios would further embarass itself just like they did with Iron Man. Glad it didn't turn out that way.

Alright, there are still some really weird plot twists, but at least the story has some fun elements to it. After watching 4 episodes, I dare say it is read more
