Marvel readies Wolverine, Storm, and Professor X for the X-Men Anime
Claws? Check. Eye lasers? Got’em. Weather under control? You know it. Anime styling? Now we’re talking! Seems like Marvel’s upcoming X-Men Anime has it all, from all of your favorite Mutants (Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Beast, Professor X, etc.) to the dynamic action adventure they’ll be quested on! Animax is happy to tease the upcoming project, offering a nice sneak peek teaser trailer that we were lucky enough to grab for your viewing pleasure. For Japanese speaking fans, the toon will be available on Animax starting April 1st. The English-speaking rest of us will have to wait until later this year for our translation, available on G4.
The X-Men are reunited following the death of a teammate, and are summoned by Charles Xavier to Japan following the abduction of Hisako Ichiki. There, they confront the U-Men, a lunatic cult that steals and transplants mutant organs to further strengthen their own army, and the battle for justice is on.
