posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The Malaysian Disney XD television channel began running an English-dubbed version of the 51-episode Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers anime on Monday. The channel is running a new episode of the anime on weekdays at 6:30 p.m.
Disney XD Malaysia's official website for the anime also began streaming trailers and previews of the English-dubbed anime on Sunday.
Toei Animation produced Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, Marvel's first television anime series for Japanese boys, for Walt Disney Japan to air throughout Japan. Bandai is responsible for turning the characters into merchandising. The series is aimed at boys ages 6-12, and originally premiered in Japan in April last year.
The series featured an X-Men arc in July. T.M.Revolution also joined the cast as Silver Samurai, a major villain who ushers Japan into darkness. Characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy film also appeared in the anime.
In the anime, portable capturing devices known as "DISKs" were developed to capture evil villains. However, thanks to Loki's machinations, both villains and heroes are sealed up in these Disks and scattered around the world. Amid the chaos, five youths obtained the power to restore these DISK-sealed heroes through a program called "Biocode." These youths received five DISKs that Spider-Man, who narrowly escaped being sealed himself, retrieved. Thus, these five can restore Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Wasp — the Avengers.
