If that was the intro they got to the show, what was their reaction to the show not being as cool as the opening? The Americans got an intro to the characters whether they knew them or not, while the Japanese got awesome action!
I wonder what it would be like if the people who did the Japanese opening redid the whole show for Japan. I still prefer the American 'cause it's a classic, but at least Jubilee seems less useless in the Japanese.
Monsters at the beginning of the Japanese opening look they were stolen directly from Alien. Original opening has sentimental value which makes me think it's better than the Japanese one but the Japanese one was alright.
I can only agree with the majority of the commenters: Japan Pwned America. Ridiculously Hard. srsly. Even though I have no idea why magneto was leading the brood or when Wolvie learned to fly... it just doesnt matter, because its AWESOME!!
I must say, I like the themesong on the US version although not better. It is pretty funny how they present Beast tho, his smile makes you want to hug him doesnt it ? lol :D. The Jap version is better in both animation and music tho lol
