I don't usually post on Saturday, but I have something to share that can't wait until Monday! We haven't heard anything about Iron Man Anime since SDCC, but the opening intro to the mini-series has surfaced on youtube! Watch it while you can!
The animation looks spectacular! Madhouse Studios pulls out all the stops for this one! The scenes in the first thirty seconds will look very familiar to fans of the first Iron Man movie, while the second thirty seconds give us a look at what to expect from the series, including what looks like Unicorn!
UPDATE: The basis of the first episodes is that Tony Stark travels to Japan to oversea the Japanese branch of Stark Industries (Pepper Potts is in charge of the main US branch) and demonstrate a new version of the Iron Man armour which he calls Iron Man Dio (which you can see a glimpse of in the theme song embeded above).
Tony's plan is the retire his old suit, but when Iron Man Dio goes haywire, Tony must bring his original suit back into action to see who is behind the sabotage.
Here is the main cast:
Tony Stark - Keiji Fujiwara (who also voiced Tony in the dub of the live action movie)
Pepper Potts - Hiroe Oka
Reporter Nanami Ota - Shizuka Ito
Dr. Tanaka - Takako Honda
