You may have heard rumblings on the internet that Marvel, in collaboration with Animax and G4, will be airing a bunch of anime inspired cartoons based on their properties. Iron Man and Wolverine start this summer, and Blade to come shortly after. Meanwhile starting in April Marvel will be airing a brand new X-Men anime – and we’ve got a LOT of art from it thanks to Marvel.com!
According to Marvel, the show will follow our team as “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 (Armor). 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.” Perhaps even Astonishing X-Men inspired to a degree, it will hopefully follow in the proud tradition of X-Men cartoons Marvel has put out like Wolverine and the X-Men and the 90’s X-Men cartoon, which had it’s own bad-ass intro in Japan.
Check out after the cut for a whole slew of anime art, and get your ^_^ on.
