In the early 2010s, Marvel decided to explore different avenues for its lineup of animated content. Taking inspiration from the continuing rise of anime popularity in the west, and the growing popularity of Marvel in the east, producing an anime series for the X-Men made plenty of sense. Despite its limited run, the animation looked fantastic, and arguably it’s a shame that more anime seasons haven’t arrived since.

After the tragic death of the beloved Jean Grey, the X-Men have been left reeling. In the wake of her death, the X-Men head to Japan to investigate the case of a missing mutant girl. Upon arriving in Northern Japan they soon discover a mysterious virus is affecting mutants, turning them into monsters.


Transformers: War for Cybertron – Earthrise N

Seasons: 2 | Episodes: 12
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi | Runtime: 30 Minutes
Cast: Jason Marnocha, Jake Foushee, Linsay Rousseau, Frank Todaro, Keith Silverstein
Netflix Release Date: December 30th, 2020

The first part of the War for Cybertron was a resounding success for Netflix. Praised for its excellent animation, and exploring the darker elements of the Transformers world, War for Cybertron has arguably been one of the best Transformers series in years, and yet there are still two parts to come.

Upon leaving Cybertron to find the Allspark, the Autobots search leads them to planet Earth. Hot on the Autobots tail is Megatron, and his evil Decepticons. Without the Allspark, the destruction of Cybertron is guaranteed, and whoever finds the Allspark first will hold the fate of Cybertron, and all of the transformers in their hands.
