Review: Iron Man – Anime

Plot Summary: Tony Stark is a physicist, an engineer, and the CEO of a major arms manufacturing company. On a battlefield he is injured from his own weapons and taken prisoner by terrorists. In order to keep his own heart beating, he creates the Ironman Suit and escapes. Once free, Stark decides to dedicate his life to pursuing world peace with the Ironman technology, so he moves to Japan to use the resources of “Lab 23,” home of the world’s first Arc Reactor. Wanting to devote himself fully to this research, Stark decides to retire as Ironman and announce the mass-production of suits to fulfill his duties. But at the announcement ceremony he is attacked by the mysterious organization known as “Zodiac,” and his plans have to change.

Iron Man is one the best characters out of Marvel at this moment and Marvel have taken their best step yet to turn it into an Anime. Its the first to be done for a show to go from American origins to Japanese Animation, most of the time it goes from Japanese to American cartoons. And I think they did a fantastic job with Iron Man, loved the characters and all the robots and how they made Tony Stark in the Anime. I flew through the 12 episodes and wanted a lot more, they made it a darker story in the Anime and that is one of the best qualities of it, there is an enemy in the background and it gets interesting. I can’t wait for more Marvel Anime shows!
