Marvel Studios has run into quite a few snags amidst the pandemic, but its move to Disney+ is not one of them. When movies were being delayed last year, the company pushed forward with plans to bring shows like WandaVision to life, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe has only become bigger for it. But if anime is more your speed, well – there is another streaming venue out there waiting to share Wolverine’s own show.
Yes, that is right! If you did not know, Wolverine has an anime to himself, and the mutant is ready to make it easier to find. Thanks to Sony Pictures Television, the 2011 Wolverine anime is now on Youtube if you would like to check it out. The series was posted this past weekend, and you can find it here.
For those unfamiliar with Marvel’s Wolverine anime, it was made a decade ago by the team at Madhouse, the same studio that worked on One-Punch Man season one. The 12-episode series was directed by Yuzo Sato, and comics legend Warren Ellis oversaw Wolverine‘s anime as well as several more pitched by Marvel.
