4 New Marvel Anime Series Comes to G4 in 2011

G4 will be airing four U.S. exclusive anime series featuring some of Marvels top stars. All of the series will be produced by Madhouse for Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan. Ironman, X-men, Wolverine and Blade will each have their own unique series and will be comprised of twelve 30-minute episodes. Here is a brief description of each series:

Iron Man

In an effort to make amends for his weapons manufacturing past, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device.  And when the reactor-in-construction is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.

X-men

The X-MEN are reunited following the death of a teammate, and are summoned by Charles Xavier to Japan following the abduction of Hisako Ichiki (Armor).  There, they confront the U-MEN, a lunatic cult that steals and transplants mutant organs to further strengthen their own army, and the battle for justice is on.

Wolverine

Based on the popular graphic novel by Frank Miller, the series begins in Japan, where Logan is challenged by Shingen Yashida, the notorious leader of a powerful mafia clan.  When Shingen’s employee Yukio, a female assassin, falls out of Shingen’s favor, she must kill him or be killed.  Teaming up with Logan, the pair seek out the villain to exact their revenge.

Blade

Eric Brooks — known as Blade — seeks revenge on Deacon Frost, the vampire lord who killed his mother while she was still pregnant with Eric.  With all the powers of a vampire and none of their weaknesses, Blade’s quest leads him throughout Southeast Asia in search of Frost, and, in Viet Nam, he discovers a vampire plot that threatens to take down the whole world.

All of the series are set to air sometime in 2011 and I will eagerly be awaiting their release. Check out the trailers for Iron Man and Wolverine:
