X-Men is the third of the Marvel Anime adapations and is without doubt the best so far by a wide margin. The fourth series, Blade, will have to be very special to improve upon X-Men, which has a nearly perfect trifecta of story, character design, and animation.

It is rare that an action series gets all three just right. For example, compare Wolverine's character design in his own series with the one from X-Men and draw your own conclusions.

But the story is where X-Men really outshines the preceding two series. The story seems like it is actually written for a 12 episode series with just the right balance between action and plot development.

I highly recommend this series for both anime and X-Men fans alike.
