human and blue furry are the main.

And sometimes wore a lab coat.

That's about how I remember Beast.

I think the reason I enjoyed the X-Men anime more is because it actually seemed like a comic book story.  Wolverine mostly felt like a generic anime... except for Omega Red.

human and blue furry are the main. the grey was just in his early furry appearances. he was pretty consistent once going blue up until astonishing x-men when he goes more feline. after that it was open season and starts to depend on the artist. they do tend to have Dark Beast (from the Age of Apocalypse timeline) be more toward the grey but not always. but yeah, comic books are weird, x-men doubly so.

As far as I'm aware, there were three versions of Beast.  Originally, he looked more human with just a stocky, muscular physique and really big feet.  Then there's the regular blue furred version that showed up in the 90s X-Men cartoon.  Then at some point he mutated a bit more in the comic, getting that lion-like head (he may have also gotten digitigrade legs and a tail).

There may have also been a grey furred version, but that might not have actually been Beast or perhaps was a Beast from a parallel Earth?  Like Linkara always says: comic books are weird.

So far I'm enjoying it more than Wolverine.

I sat down and watched Wolverine while X-Men mostly played in the background when I watched it, sooo, that's why I have to give X-Men a handicap when judging it. It did seem to pick up after the first episodes. It just never grabbed me the same.

The only thing I don't like is the cat version of Beast. 

So pretty much you are opposite on which toon interests you more, and, the one character I thought stood out in the one that interested me less, was the only thing you didn't like.

We should do a show!

I vaguely remember there being 2 Beasts now that you mention it.. See, my thing with Beast as a kid was, I liked his concept, but, whatever he could do, someone else in the team could do better.. So he was kinda boring.. That's all I remembered about Beast. Then when I watched this X-Men I thought they did a good job of not making him a background character. Which is like saying they did an above average job with him.

I like him on his own as a concept but they could lose Beast altogether and I'd probably forget he was even in the team.

At some point I need to finish The Mandalorian and start the new season of Cobra Kai, but it looks like the new season of Disenchanted is coming soon.

There must be new episodes of Lost in Space coming soon too assuming they didn't already cancel that very nicely done show.

I dunno, but the gulf between subs and dubs for X-Men is even more amusing.  Early on the mad cyberdoc is attacking and in the dub he's using full, coherent sentences, while in the subs he just keeps shouting "organs".  Or there's the moment when someone asks Scott if it's okay that someone will be joining them on the Blackbird and in the dub he says "sure" but the sub says "no."

So far I'm enjoying it more than Wolverine.  The only thing I don't like is the cat version of Beast.  I didn't like it in the comics, either.  At some point I need to finish The Mandalorian and start the new season of Cobra Kai, but it looks like the new season of Disenchanted is coming soon.

Ikr!

I thought I'd like the X-Men one better due to it had the whole team and the characters had a more traditional look but I came away feeling like the Wolverine one tried to adapt our legend into another culture whereas the X-Men one felt more like adapting our legend into cash - it just didn't seem to have the same heart.

They're both nicely done but I was more engaged by Wolverine. Coulda just been my moods at the time.

I find it funny that the X-Men anime has the better Wolverine design, whereas the Wolverine anime had a better Cyclops design.

Sabrina is definitely not a kids show.

Lordy.. I watched some of this yesterday. You are correct.

Started on that Wolverine anime after getting bored partway through the first episode of the new season of Sabrina. 

Bored wouldn't be the word I would use. I don't have a word, exactly, but, after getting ~ 14 minutes in, it kinda felt like.... I thought I might have lost my keys in the bottom of a large trash bucket and was trying to fish them out..
