Sony <3's Marvel Anime

+ posted by njt in Anime News on Sep 12, 2009 07:38
Seeing how Stan Lee took a dip in the manga waters, Sony and Marvel are following suit since they observe that both anime and manga are being recognized by a broader audience more and more because both animation and storylines appear compelling to both children and adults. What better way to give anime more attention than with two powerhouses and strong names like Iron man and Wolverine backing it up? Which I'm all for. ^^

So far the company MadHouse (The company that worked on The girl who leapt through time, and Summer Wars) seems to be leading them down the right path or at least that's what I thought after seeing these two videos:

Iron Man Anime Trailer

Wolverine Anime Trailer

However, whether or not the Marvel and Disney merger will change any of these plans remains to be seen. However, considering they're working with Viz to get Naruto on the air makes it seem like their goal really does lie in getting anime more main stream.

Wow... Simply awesome :D

Wolverine become a skinny runt :P

Other wise I can't wait :D

I sure hope they will follow a proper story line unlike the old American versions where each episode had a new story

Damn Iron man looks damn good. 2010 sigh quite a bit of time left.

NEITHER of these are actual anime trailers. Madhouse and Warren Ellis threw them together to show what they could be like. Wolverine will be completely different, based on an old Chris Claremont story, and the Iron Man one.... probably won't be that much different.

Okay, animes are being recognized by a broader audience, I acknowledge that. But Marvel's stories are not. So I don't see how converting Marvel stuff into animes will help. >.>

...oh boy.
this is gonna... -censored- .
Anime and uh whatever americans call the stuff that airs on tv that looks like cartoons
should not be merged IMO. I mean, they should stay the same way, maybe a remake may be nicer.
If somehow this 2 titles become sucessful
I think we're gonna have this:
Justice league the anime
Spider man the anime
Ben10 the anime
Pink panther the anime
Tom and jerry the anime
etc etc.
No, seriously , so what if theres a wider audience, it doesn't give them the right to add "the anime" at the back of every single cartoon
for the sake of the luh, theres a lilo and stitch anime coming out

Both would fit well in an anime type setting. Japan does mecha very well and that suits Iron Man perfectly and Wolverine has roots in Japan so it doesn't seem strange to me to give him a Japanese twist like this. Could be fun projects.

Why does Wolverine have a mullet?

The Iron Man anime looks a lot cooler, although I couldn't help but imagine a Lady Gaga song playing at the beginning of the trailer.
