So Warren Ellis is writing anime for Marvel and Madhouse Productions. The currently announced titles/shows are Iron Man and Wolverine.

Bizarre.

Re: Ourchair's Awesome Anime Thread

The remaining two Marvel anime are Blade and X-Men.

Teaser for the Iron Man anime, and it is totally badass:

The Wolverine one is kind of meh, but supposedly this is just an animation test or something and isn't indicative of the final product.

Re: Ourchair's Awesome Anime Thread

Loved the Iron Man. The Wolverine was very odd, just weird to see a skinny wolverine.

Wow. I love both of them, especially the Iron Man one (the detail!), but Wolverine looks a little too skinny, and what's up with his mullet?

Re: Iron Man and Wolverine Anime?

The trailers have also been posted in two separate threads. Also, you might want to change the thread title to Marvel Anime, since they are also doing a Blade and X-Men one.

Blade Anime? That sounds awesome.

That Iron Man trailer is one of the coolest things I've seen come out of Comic-Con. I'm honestly very excited for that.

Not sure how I feel about the Wolverine one. I do like the animation though.

Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Black Panther, Shang-Chi, Daredevil, Thunderbolts, Ghost Rider.......Ellis is involved right? then NEXTWAVE!, just not the X-Men again

Re: Marvel Animated Movies Vs DC Animated Movies.

Can I please say that I think anime will be aweful for Wolverine. I mean they took an already Animeish hairdoe Wolverine has and gave him a ****ing mullet. Aside from the fact that he only has the claws and does only a couple of 'Wolverine' things I think this is going to be a case of the Japanese animators taking an American character and switching them to their personal outlook on life. I'd be fine with this but Wolverine is such an American character that I really don't think he can be adapted to these animated movies.

Iron Man works cause I guess he's America's equivelant to the Gundams, so who cares on that one.

I won't be seeing these anyway because I hate anime in any form and don't really want to see some of my favorite characters taken from their natural form and taken to a medium they don't belong in.

So good luck to these movies but I hope this never takes off as a franchise for Marvel.

Wolverine anime looks god aweful. Iron Man looks like Gundam 'white guy'.

I don't ever see these taking off.

That's fine. I mean the animations seem top notch. But I assume they're just going to do the standard anime thing and throw the Marvel characters into their very standard tropes. I think it could be great visually but very dullard structurally and emotionally.

Warren Ellis is writing Iron Man and Wolverine will probably also have non Japanese writers, so I believe the only thing "anime" about this is the animation. Also, the Wolverine one will supposedly be about his time in Japan when he was killing ninjas and such. And really, how many Japanese animators have taken American characters and switched their outlooks on life? I can't think of any.

Iron Man works cause I guess he's America's equivelant to the Gundams, so who cares on that one.
Only in the most superficial sense in that they are both armors with pilots. What they stand for and the stories told about them are vastly different.

May I ask why?

and don't really want to see some of my favorite characters taken from their natural form and taken to a medium they don't belong in
So by that logic you also hate all super hero movies, games, and cartoons?
