The third Marvel anime TV series, X-Men, now has a US airdate. It will begin airing on the G4 Channel on October 21, at 11:00 PM ET. The anime will be the third Marvel anime to have aired on G4. In 2010 in Japan, Marvel and Madhouse teamed up to create four various Marvel anime, all of which were licensed in North America by Marvel Entertainment, and were set to air on G4. G4 is currently airing the first two Marvel anime, Iron Man and Wolverine, and are set to air the fourth, Blade, this winter.

The series is the fourth X-Men animated series, after X-Men: TAS, X-Men: Evolution, and Wolverine & the X-Men. In this show, after a member dies, the team disbands, only to be brought back together in order to find a missing girl in Japan.

The anime aired in Japan from April to June 2011 on Animax with 12 episodes. It was directed by Fuminori Kizaki (Afro Samurai, Basilisk) and animated by Madhouse (Death Note, Cardcaptor Sakura). In the dub, the protagonist, Cyclops, will be voiced by Scott Porter (Rex Racer in the Speed Racer film). He previously voiced Cyclops in the Wolverine anime.

The upcoming X-Men anime series, which will air in Japan this spring, now has a teaser. I think it looks pretty cool, and may end up being the best Marvel Comics based anime.

This is the third Marvel anime. The first two were Iron Man and Wolverine, which aired back-to-back in Japan starting October 2010. X-Men is scheduled to start in April.

G4 is scheduled to air all three anime in North America in 2011. Here is the teaser. I think it looks pretty cool.

Yup. I’ll probably watch these. Both anime series will air in Japan in 2011, and will air in America on the G4 channel, along with the Wolverine and Iron Man anime around the spring. Like Iron Man and Wolverine, X-Men and Blade will be animated by Madhouse (Death Note, Cardcaptor Sakura). Both anime are based on characters from Marvel Comics.
