THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
hmm, wasn't bad at all. some scenes during the fights were a littly bit messy and it was hard to find out who is doing what. still, I enjoyed the episode

however, I want to see more of Storms powers. why did she have to be nerfed? even if she is underground, Storm would kick ass-.-

preferred the last two episodes

I liked this ep more than the past two since they weren't being overly dramatic. I think this anime dose a better job with the fight scenes than the forced drama.

Agree that weak Storm is lame.

I thought this episode is quite lame.

How can they allow for such a long talk in the enemy territory. Can't they save their asses first then talk?

And what's with the wishy washy girl's awakening.
The portray of the lack of control over her powers isn't convincing.

The wierd doctor is too random too.

The graphics and animation is still as good, but the plot and script is lame.

Hisako looks,acts and talks like Hinata

And when she uses her powers she looks like a freakin' oversized POKEMON.

Don't talk to me about character development if Kaizuka Inaho or Slaine Troyard are in your favorites.

But Emma tho....She just doesn't click here :( she's supposed to be a total bitch practically.

Other than that, still kind of digging it. I'll keep watching I suppose. I seriously want Rogue to appear :(

Clearly you haven't seen Iron Man and Wolverine. The plot and script is just average, but I'm appreciating it a lot more compared to the last two atrocities.

Agreed. Compared to the last 2 this series is actually good.
Other than that..hmm....I still don't trust Emma as the good girl...O.o

Was ok, still why storm is so weak here...? From the comics and others series she allways restrain herself about his powers because she is too much powerfull...

But here looks like a crappy mutant, still i hit it =P

I'm seeing Hinata but I'm hearing TenTen O.o
I lol'd at Wolverine saying "It's like driving a car. Brakes, brakes!"
Still, good episode.
Curious to what's happening to Emma next episode.

It's like I'm watching a sequel o.o

I have already forgotten about the Inner Circle in cartoons/comics. dammit OTL

I still don't trust Emma though, she's a deceiver. I can't dig it when she has a complete change of heart. It's soooo not her. And also weak Storm >.>

I loled at Hisako's powers because it reminds me of Ultraman LMAO

I think storm became so weak because she has Claustrophobia (fear of enclosed spaces), cause they are in enemy cave (althought i'm not sure if cave can cause that)

sorry if i were wrong

I'm definitely enjoying this so far. It's plot and writing are pretty average but it has good fight scenes, though it also helps not to have read the comics and want everything to follow them closely. I'm a fan of all of the character designs, even if Wolverine is ridiculously broad, and was intrigued that they went with Beast's secondary mutation look. That said, I'm amused that next episode they seem to be saying that it will be their first contact with secondary mutations (could never guess what Emma Frost's is going to be *rolls eyes*).

All in all it's turning out to be the only Marvel anime that looks like it'll be worth a sequel. I'm still sad that Disney/Marvel chose not to continue Wolverine and the X-Men, which was probably the best animated adaptation. That said, this series has the best art and animation.

Hmm, Hisako is known as Armor by the way. Her armor was like that in the original comics.

Other than that, Storm was useless lol... She must have gotten emotionally weak in this ep....but whatever....

Next ep: we get to see Emma Frost's secondary mutation: the diamond form

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

You do realize that that's not saying much, right? That's like saying this pile of crap is better than that pile of crap. It's still crap.

I know that Hisako is Armor, but I feel like I'm watching a stereotype. I mean, an Asian who's the embodiment of a giant mecha? Seriously?

Not a bad episode all round, but I agree with everyone else that nerfed Storm was not a cool idea. I don't even understand the concept as to why she even is. It makes no sense.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

LOL, it's pretty cliche but you have to blame Marvel for that....American comics ARE pretty cliche after all.

The series sure is cheesy. It's like "she was our enemy! no, she saved this girl now, we wrongly accused her!". Sure it was lame dialogues and the characters are all brain dead. Then again, I personally think the whole Marvel franchise is pretty cheesy if you look at it from a certain perspective. I still like it though....

episode 3 was really sad. i expect better from the characters. Wolverine is allright and Cyclops has been ok, except for the lame ass suffering crap he's going through, i mean i understand it but it's played out. Storm is so weak now, and whats up with all the emma frost crap, then this little girl is the one that takes down that dumbass talking like a zombie. Organnns, Organnsss... whats up with that.

Hinata really made a fool out of so called professional mutant fighters like X-Men. They were all getting their ass kicked until she went into action.

True that. You can't expect too much smart plot and dialogs out of classic superhero comics. It's mostly about action. They to have there good moments every now and then though.

American superheroes comics.

I am not talking about alternative comics genres. I refer to the mainstream superhero comics obviously.

Fixed.

P.S. Manga are pretty cliche too. It doesn't mean it's definitely bad. The cheesiness of Marvel comics is all part of the fun and entertainment of its genre.

Not all Marvel comics or superhero comics are cliche unlike what you think.There are very good and original storylines in even some superhero series you's consider cliche like Dark Phoenix Saga from X-Men series or Kraven's Last hunt from the Spider-Man. And many "normal" comics are better than the most manga.

LOL, don't you realize I am making generalizing statements....Of course there are better stuffs in American comics... just as there are better stuffs in European comics and Japanese manga. There are serious plotlines in Marvel obviously. However, I am talking about mainstream. Just like mainstream manga is full of fan service and shounen fluff. I am not bashing American comics specifically.

Was i the only one to notice they used the SAME OST as Wolverine during the fight with bird man? Which i may add was horrible to attempt to follow. Worst episode i have had this season.

Great episode. It ws nice to see Hisakos powers which are awesome btw.
I dont think Emma was behind the story with Jean but dont know.
I hope Hisako and Emma will join forces with X-Men.
I cant wait to see the next episode it looks really interesting.

I like this episode. I just didn't find much really good about it either.

But yeah, I don't trust Emma Frost yet.

I liked this episode just for the spotlight of Armor's abilities. I just hate how bad the female characters look in this show. Logan and Scot are still badass though.

Amen. The characters are really disappointing, and introducing Hisako seems pretty lame so far too. Also, I had trouble containing my laughter when her powers awakened - I mean, giant pokemon-mecha armor, wtf? Haha!

"It's just like driving a car!" haha yeah, good one.

This series is turning out to be rather disappointing though...
