Re: X-men

Copy/Paste from spring lineup thread:

From what I've heard so far, the first episode wasn't all that bad. Apparently it does a decent job of capturing the feel of the series without overcomplicating anything. I'll have to watch it myself when it gets subbed in order to post my actual opinion of it, but I'm a little more hopeful now than I was before.

Re: X-men

This looks great. I don't like Beasts' new design but otherwise I really like the animation. Can't wait for subtitles to come out.

Saw the first episode. I liked it. Full opinion is in the spring lineup thread.

Re: X-men

^ Pffffffffffffffft

Looks pretty good. I grew up with the X-Men, it's one of my first loves. I really hope they do it justice (though it's Madhouse, so I see no reason why they won't).

Who's the short girl with the long black hair? I figured it was supposed to Kitty Pryde until she transformed into what looked like a fire golem or something. New character...?

Re: X-men

She's Hisako Ichiki. Apparently, she's an actual Japanese X-Men character in the comics. Makes it a really nice way for them to tie X-Men to Japan in the anime.

Re: X-men

Oh sweet. Hopefully we get to see some of the other more obscure Japanese X-men characters like Sunfire, Lady Deathstrike, or Silver Samurai. Especially if Sunfire gets turned into one of the Horsemen, because that would lead to Gambit becoming the Horseman of Death (assuming gambit is in this). =D And, obviously, Mr. Sinister and Apocalypse.

Re: X-men

Watched the new episode.

I've always admired Madhouse's ability to make absolutely everything look badass.
