New Batch of Images from the New X-Men Anime TV Series

Marvel has released a new batch of images, including screenshots and concept artwork of the various characters, from their upcoming “X-Men” anime TV series. The show will be premiering over the ocean in Japan next month, before heading Stateside this summer via the G4 cable network along with Marvel’s other Japanese-based properties, “Iron Man”, “Wolverine”, and “Blade”.

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.

Just an observation, but man, Cyclops is looking a little, er, interesting. I guess they needed someone to balance out Wolverine’s “too manly” feral looks. Or something.

The show premieres on Animax in Japan beginning April 1st.

Cool Stories From Zergnet

    Cyclops looks like a gay emo dude.

  • Shazam

    I know this is supposed to be stylized and all that… but is Marvel bent on having their characters chewed up and spit out in whatever form makes them a buck?

  • Solo

    I’m glad that they have Storm as one of the characters!!! SHE’S SO HOT!!!

  • Dedpool

    Loving the look actually. I mean other than the emo look on Cyclops the look are very close to stuff the characters would wear. I mean if anything they’re going for the look Cyclops had in the comics right before and during the New X-men run. They tried to make him look a bit cooler with the hair and thin visor, and the the jacket look works for him but the poses are killing me. Beast I really like and Armor, Wolverine, and Storm look great. I really think they tried to do a lil bit comic and a lil bit movie with the look.

  • Zero-shot

  • Storm

    I have a feeling Cyclops would be the star of this show. Cyclops looks awesome!!!!

  • Loner

    Guys the first episode is out, and it’s friggin great. Japan has made Cyclops one of the most awesome superhero on earth.

    • Dedpool

      That’s cool to hear. Marvel has been slowly building him up in the comics too. He has become quite the bad ass
