Some Marvel Comics franchises lend themselves more easily to an anime-flavored interpretation, where heightened action and emotion are the order of the day. X-Men is one of those properties that fits into anime stylings like it was always meant to be this way. It helps that the X-Men have always been one of the more angst-filled concepts churned out by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the sixties, alongside such iconic superheroes as the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and the Hulk.



Fighting for a humanity that is confused, ashamed, and frightened of their very existence, the X-Men translate to anime with their essential natures intact. The character designs for the series take their cue from the original franchise, and the battles push the outer limits of cartoon violence and action -- this is an intense series in some ways. It is faithful to the X-Men characters, however, and provides yet another medium for the deathless mutants to conquer.
