I'm all for story and character development. Animation and VAs are the last thing I think about when watching. I watched One Piece from episode 1 when the animation still sucked and I didn't care b/c the plot and characters were interesting. In terms of the Marvel series, X-men is the only one so far that's good. They're making it too dry and serious and they need to add comedy. DW will reach top 10 in no time in Japan, my prediction.
