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…

The wolverine. Chances are this isn't the first time you've heard of this character. In fact, you probably wouldn't be looking to watch this if you don't enjoy marvel products to some capacity. I'm a total marvel geek and I watched this just to say that I've seen wolverine in anime form. After watching it I was a bit disappointed, but I wasn't angry or sad about it, i was kind of content with what I got.

STORY 6/10
If you've seen the wolverine movie from 2013, you know where he goes to Japan, this is an incredibly dumbed down version of that pretty dang good movie read more

It may just be me, but I found this anime unbearable. it took a short comic arc which was dark yet had a sweet ending and turned it too well crap.
To start this off, I disliked Logan's voice actor. He tried too hard to sound tough and his voice was too young for the role. Logan is a very old man even though his body doesn't show it, both his voice and mannerisms do. His voice to me sounds like a kid trying to sound older and he acts like a 20-year-old trying to act cool (take a drink for every one-liner I dare you).Second, read more
