I'm Wondering if the 90s X-Men Animated Series (which is western animation) should be on Anime Vice. I'm asking this because the X-Men animated series had a japanese dub with its own anime styled intros. This was also Japan's earliest exposure to the X-Men franchise. Since Anime Vice allows anime-like series from the west such as Ben 10, Avatar & Totally Spies on here I don't think it would hurt to have the X-Men Animated Series especially since their has been "real" anime & manga based on the X-Men franchise already.
Seiyus:
 Masashi Ebara as Wolverine
 Kōichi Yamadera as  Cyclops
 Akiko Hiramatsu as Jubilee
Rihoko Yoshida as Storm
Yūko Kobayashi as Rogue
Shinobu Adachi as Jean Grey 
 Yoshito Yasuhara as Gambit 
Rokurō Naya as Charles Xavier
Ryūzaburō Ōtomo as Magneto
 Norio Wakamoto as Mr. Sinister
 Ayako Shirashi as Dazzler 

The Anime styled Intros on the Japanese version:

@SuperTiencha:  It isn't a Japanese product as in being produced and drawn by a Japanese company. Having it being dubbed and broadcast by Japanese isn't enough.

@Kelleth: Ya but the intros for the japanese version were made in Japan. Also series like Avatar the last airbender and Ben 10 aren't made in Japan either but are covered on this site.

@SuperTiencha:  Those are on there because they are cross style shows. Shows using anime style in their animation. X-men is still a very American show in any sort of way. Just 2 openings don't really cut it....

I've always argued that those shows shouldn't be in our database.  That's what Screened is for.  We are AnimeVice, not CartoonVice or AnythingThatsAnimatedVice.  If you're looking for a mod consensus, put me down as a nay for adding it.  The only pro I can say is that, while I don't think it should be in our database, the X-Men cartoon seems more valid than stuff like Ben 10 and Avatar which are zero percent anime.
