This is the best sword and claw action since Ninja Blade! Or no, this is arguable but for an old, tired American concept turned into Japanese anime, this is great!
The stupid bishonen stuff from the old trailer is long gone. We have a Logan the way he should be – manly, tough, goes after what he wants. Did I mention GAR??? But not GAR in a mountain of muscles way, but agile and with well defined muscles and big shoulders. What, you have guns, son? That’s a good one. But I’m still a million times faster than you. Nice try, bub.
Thankfully no “bub’s” were uttered by this Logan. This guy simply rocks.
…Why does Logan always goes through the same shit? Someone is always trying to snatch his girlfriend away. I never really read much of X-Men and I remember that plot.
I really like the action scenes, to me, they’re quite fluid. Lightening fast, smooth and deadly, just like a fairy tale ninja. Wolverine is perfect at his new home – in an anime produced by Madhouse.
The female lead is bland. But that’s why this show is called “Wolverine”. My fan service side wags its head but my fighting action side wags its tail (man that was off). In any event, you should just watch the show for all the stops that the makers of Ninja Scroll put in and more – cause they certainly know how to kick it up a notch or two. Or TEN.
Heartily recommended for any action fan.

So this is way better than the iron man adaptation into anime, well reading your insights for this anime makes me want to pick it up.
Iron Man anime felt less tight in pacing and a rather cliched compared with this one.
If I’m not mistaken, I’m pretty sure the Wolverine anime is being based off of one of the official Wolverine story arcs from the comic books. Apparently it was one of the REALLY early story arcs that helped get him popular as a hero in the US.

Seems to be true. In that case, Madhouse is actually going with a good source material closer to home. Let’s see how good they can use it.
