Here’s a new promo trailer giving us our first look at the new X-Men anime series being developed my Marvel and Madhouse Studios. This is one of four series that are being developed. Both Wolverine and Iron Man are already being aired on Animex, and Blade is still in production. All the new Marvel series are scheduled to premiere later this year in the U.S. on G4TV.
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.
The anime will premiere on Animax on April 1st. Check out the promo trailer below showing off anime designs for Beast, Storm, Wolverine, Cyclops, and Professor X.
