I'm a huge X-men fan. What makes that rough for me is that I'm also a big believer in canon and continuity. In other words, movies like Wolverine: Origins and the First Class movies just make me angry, as a fan that spends half the time trying to get backstories right. Which is why I was so happy with the two X-men based anime, Wolverine and X-men. They were perfectly done, perfectly converted from West to East.

STORY: I had to laugh out loud. When the anime started it was like reliving my childhood, watching an updated (and non-English) version of X-men: The Animated Series. read more

To say X-Men is the best of Madhouse's Marvel anime is to damn the series with the faintest of praises. Yes, it's better than the likes of Iron Man, but there's still something vital missing here.

I want to say that that something is heart, but each episode's so lovingly animated that this time I can't really accuse Madhouse of not trying. Indeed, I kept up with X-Men for that reason: this is a fluid and excitingly drawn series that, in the end, just never convinces us that these characters are worth caring for.

Cyclops is the angsty pretty boy and Wolverine the wise-cracking bastard; read more

Recommendations

Both anime feature people with "supernatural" powers fighting against normal people and others with "supernatural" powers. One group cares for and protects humanity while the other group cares nothing for human life and only wishes to strengthen their own power. In "Tokyo ESP" the supernatural powers are described as being ESP while in "X-Men" the powers are described as "Mutations". Both also take place in real places.
Very similar powers and theme:

This is for both Zettai Karen Children series and The Unlimited Hyoubu Kyousuke series

- We have an organization/ group similar to Professor X School for Mutants---ZKC-BABEL who want to create a world where Espers and Normals can coesist. Similar to Mutants and Humans in X-Men. Here they train Espers to use their powers for good while there are evil people who use them too.

Another organization/ group similar to Magneto. In ZKC/Kyousuke is called PANDRA. PANDRA wants to recruit Esper who are being hated by humans and want to give them freedom. A place for them to use their powers without being feared or killed. But on the upside, PANDRA/Magneto wants to start a war with Esper/Mutants---Normals/Non-Mutants.
