Anime: Wolverine
Let's go, Bub!

A Twelve Episode Anime beginning in early 2011 as the second of four Marvel Comics series produced by anime studio Madhouse, Wolverine follows Logan's journey to Japan in search of his lost love, Mariko Yashida. As it turns out, Mariko's father, Shingen Yashida, is the head of the criminal organization known as Kuzuryu (Nine Dragons) and intends to marry her off to cement an alliance with Hideki Kurohagi, leader of the tiny island nation of Madripoor.

After trying and failing to rescue Mariko from her father's clutches, Logan is joined by Yukio, the daughter of an assassin who was killed by Shingen, and is now seeking vengeance. Together, they follow Shingen and Mariko to Madripoor where the wedding is to take place.

The series is based on the same Frank Miller/Chris Claremont storyline that inspired the later live-action film The Wolverine.
