Japanese X-men sure are Japanese

Well, for an non-Japanese series, that is...

  
  
Sure, we've given you plenty of things to watch today, but... As a huge fan of 90's X-Men: The Animated Series, I was tickled pink when Rob over at Topless Robot featured this. The Japanese opening to the English series, and whoa, it sure does look a little different. I really, really like the vibe (obviously,) but I'll leave the cute observations to Rob though.
 

 Things to note:

• Magento apparently in charge of the Brood
• Jean Grey, Storm and Jubillee's powers boiled down to doing Kamehamehas
• Cable and Gambit fighting random mecha
• An awesome shot of Rogue, Storm and Professor X looking like the world's biggest pimp
• Beast pulling a Hulk move
• Wolverine and Omega Red flying through the air

Oh yeah, and the song is pretty awful.

Wait.... was this done especially for the Jappanese releae of the X-men series or is this a totally different series then the 90s X-Men???

Same 90's series you're thinking of, it just had an original opening for their release. Not too uncommon, we've done it on plenty of the anime we do here.
