Marvel: Wolverine: Animated Series DVD Review


Synopsis: This series pays homage to Frank Miller's legendary Wolverine graphic novel from the 1980's. The series begins when Mariko, the love of Logan's life, is forced back to Japan by her crime-lord father, Shingen. Logan vows to get her back at any cost. He is plunged into a chaotic world of corruption and violence, forcing him to team up with young assassin, Yukio, to battle their way through the Japanese criminal underworld.

Review: This DVD is one in a series of four different Marvel properties being brought to anime.  This aired on the G4 network originally.  The series focuses on Logan's travels to Japan and his lover Mariko, as seen in the legendary original Wolverine mini-series back in the early 1980s by Frank Miller.   If you enjoy anime, then you will love these episodes.  Any die-hard X-Men and Wolverine fan will enjoy hearing Steve Blum reprising his role as Wolverine...that really helps tie this series in. 

Interest Range: Marvel Comics, Anime
