This show keeps getting better and better. The OST so far has been insane. The intensity that plays when Kikyo first appears is mind boggling. God Damn I can't wait for this fight. This blows Iron Man out the water

Asano...NOOOO!!! But why does it seem that I'm more upset over Asano's death than Logan? Logan seemed angry, but didn't get as emotional as I thought he should.
6 claws up against 1 sword? I can't wait to see the outcome of this battle.
I like Yukio! I love chicks that kick ass!!

Much, much worse than the first episode... I feel like dropping it... The first episode was very impressive.

How would Wolverine die from a train? Unless the train was made of Adamantium...

Also... when they were outside Asano's room... how did it take take so long for Wolverine to smell that blood? Shouldn't he also have noticed the police/yakuza before-hand? His Feral Senses in this Japanese Anime are very underwhelming.

And also... how did that woman not cut herself using those silly daggers? And aren't those daggers supposed to have a handle as an arc of the whole circular blade?

They could've made the Wolverines clothing a lot more interesting... even I thought of some clothing designs that would make him feel more like Wolverine... jeez if this keeps going like this then I'll drop after next episode >.>

More Rage from Logan is needed... More "bub"s are needed... although more rage will kinda go off from the Wolverine i know.

Also... if that Kikyo guy doesn't have an Adamantium blade... he's gonna die. And how the hell is the sword longer than Kiyko's fore-arm? Storing the sword like wolverine does in his fore-arm is logical... but a that long sword? And his arms were bent... so really how did he store it?

So many more things i can point out in this anime... if this doesn't get any better... I'll say it again... I'm dropping it.

Yeah, there's a lot of flaws in this show, but at least it's more entertaining than Iron Man. That isn't saying much, but I hope some of these stupid flaws will be fixed. Then again, I said the same thing about Iron Man. Deja vu.
Ara ara.

Who the hell is Rougan? The name is Logan.

Anyway why would an assassin of the same family intervene with the murder being done by his own associates? That doesn't make much sense. Except if the old man isn't really that much into the guy with the glasses.

The episode in general wasn't very impressive. Things looked not coherent enough.


P.S - Still hard for me to get used of a tall well mannered bishounen like Wolverine. I kind of liked that short hairy dude with an attitude problem from the comics.
And why to women looked so ugly in this anime?

I was wondering that myself. How the hell was she holding those things?
That's one stupid weapon. They need to have a handle somewhere they can be completely circular.

Well, but the deal with chakram is that it is indeed lacks handle...

Well, we know that Logan wouldn't be much hurt by the train, but I doubt that some lowlife gangsters know that.

This episode wasn't particularly all that interesting, since I really didn't like what happened to the Shingen fight. I'm assuming this is something they'll save until the end though.

HAHAHAHAHAHAA, man you say it, also, how is posible regeneration power of logan looks so crap here

Even in X-men 3 when logan is gona kill jean ( the final part ) You actualy can see the real regeneraion power of logan and how fast regenerate his wounds

This logan anime vercion is so crap..., i think gona drop it in next chap, this show is being made with the same low quality as iron man, so sad for such a impresive character as wolverine

We know that his bones are covered with Adamantium, but do the people who put him in front of the train? I think that the boss man who fought Logan knows, but the other guy is so full of himself he possibly only thinks that Logan can poke out his blades, not that it is around his whole body.

Then again, maybe the goal wasn't to kill Logan, maybe it was to deport him by having him cause a train reck and his powers suddenly show up.

Also, keep in mind, he had a drug in his system that in fact slowed down his regenerative time.

It was through two doors and their didn't seem to be much blood pooling and likely no trace of blood outside the room due to the fact that the person went out through the window, not the door.

CRAZEH247 said:

Most cases they are supposed to, I can only surmise that this has to do with the fact that the handle is made of metal and it is cast from one metal casting and that she knows where to grab it from.

...

Anyways... I thought this was a good episode, loved the action and everything.

First hes bones are solid adamantiun not covered ( See in wolverine comics and wolverine origins )

Seccond the drug iirc in ep 1 say "Paralyze the nervous system, faster that your regeneraion power" so the mutant power is not afected by this drug, you also can see that in many comics of wolverine and in x-men 2 when the soldier enter into de mansion and start to shoot darts to the student and to logan

when i saw at least 5 posts prior to yours I was originally thinking I must be something wrong but then someone with some common shows up. But to my point

The first episode had a feel to it that I like to call potential (you know the thing that makes you wanna watch a show not fall asleep to it) but this last episode felt generic, like there was nothing special, I mean seriously nothing but samaurai's when this is wolverine, and as for our new character we have the cliche you killed my parent so I am going to kill you. I haven't dropped a show in over a year not even Iron Man and that was pretty bad but if this keep us I think I can find something more productive to do out in the 10 degree weather then watch this.

You do know that 80% of Wolverine lore is Japan? -_-

That one more prominent nemesis of wolverine(and latter an ally) was a silver samurai?

That Shingen Yashida, Mariko, Yukio are characters straight from F.Miller's and C.Claremont's comic book and this whole plotline is based around it?

That three out of 5 most important women in Wolverine's life has been japanese? And one of them even birthed him a son?

That wolverine had two or three stays in japan?

That wolverine used to be a friggin samurai and pretty much lives by bushido code?

CRAZEH247 said:

Depends on a comic book writer. One makes him tank nukes, other makes him only regen wounds at slower rates than the others and so on.

C.Claremont's Wolverine can heal minor wounds almost instantly, something major (like a cut off limb) would heal in matters of weeks or days, he can still be killed by severing the brain and strong(very strong) toxins can slow down his regen rate.

That was not a room. That was a full-blown flat. with separate rooms, hallways and so on. Considering:
- The layour most likely is not straight and doors are not lined up in straight row.
- Assassin never left through the doors.
- Wolverine is not superman
- Assassin did not make a bloodshed, but instead killed the cop with a precise strike to the heart.
- The cop's body was in the furthest room.


yeah, its no wonder it took a while for him to notice.

AS for cops. Well, let's see, you enter into your friend's flat and find him with a hole in his heart dead. The last thing you would think about is sniffing around for police. Stress - it dulls your senses.


CRAZEH247 said:

And also... how did that woman not cut herself using those silly daggers? And aren't those daggers supposed to have a handle as an arc of the whole circular blade?

Most likely the blade has a handle. That type of weapon was mostly used as the literal verson of double-edged sword(in that it hurt both the attacker and attacked).

Those that were not meant for that mostly had a special handle or a part without blades. This is most likely the latter case.

CRAZEH247 said:

You do know that he does not ALWAYS wear his x-men outfit(s)? Leather jackets, cowboy outfits, dusters, traditional japanese clothing, and so on. I truly can't see on what is wrong with him wearing a leather jacket.


CRAZEH247 said:

He is not a walking canadian stereotype. Despite his berserk-like fight style, he can be very collected when he wants (one of advantages of his service and stays in Japan is that he, unlike his son, does not go slashing everyone that he even slightly does not like). If you want carnage, bloodlust and murder go for his bisexual son.

CRAZEH247 said:

Also... if that Kikyo guy doesn't have an Adamantium blade... he's gonna die.

Hm, let's see. The guy brought the blade out of his arm. I wonder...~(hence logan's shocked expression when the guy shows his blade)

Also adamantium is not needed to fight wolverine generally. There are literally dozens of mutants capable of strengthening their weapons at will(ex: Silver Samurai). tachyon field won't cut adamantium but should hold its own in overall.

Heck not even that is needed,just have Wolvie go against a capable man who has Muramasa katana and Wolvie will most likely be finished.

CRAZEH247 said:

Depends on his power(he could have control over metal for all we know).

Considering The ending theme seems to hint that we will see Wolverine's "origins" in the projectX, this guy might be part of it or part of a try to replicate it, for all we know.


Going by preview (him bitting a severed hair of his and turning it into a needle), the guy most likely can turn his body tissue into metal and shape it.

The fight next episode should be good. Also really pleased with the seiyuus thus far, knew I recognized Shigen's voice, it's King Bradley~

Also, really nice of the yakuza to put Logan's jacket and boots back on before they attempt to kill him > . >

He was still affected by the drug that stopped his regeneration, the train would have smushed him.

They're plated.

He had the adamantium fused onto his bones by the Weapon X program. During the 1990s, Wolverine was revealed to have bone claws after his adamantium is ripped out by Magneto in X-Men #25

Wow, the ending was intense. I like Yukio, but we'll see how her character is played later.

I'm surprised that Asano already died. Its only episode 2.

Great episode, the fighting scenes were superb!
And, the version of Logan is growing on me.

If this stays on the story from the comics, it should turn out to be really great.

Yes, it has it's flaws, but overall I think they're doing a great job adapting it, yet still adding the Japanese touch to it. I haven't decided which I like better...Wolvi or Iron Man...have to give them both a few more episodes.

Urahara Out!!

Of course the cop was killed and Logan was framed for it.

The guy from Blade did it obviously.
