Nice. This is the first Marvel Anime (outside of X-Men) that I actually want to see. Sweet.

His character could translate well to anime. I'll have to check it out when it's done.

The anime looks really good but from watching the X-men anime in Japanese I hope I can see this in english because having american heroes speaking entirely in Japanese kind of ruins it for me.It's a really well done anime accept for that fact.So hopefully we could get a dubbed version.

Never realized how well the character of Blade translates to Anime.

Wait wait wait...hold on.  A black guy is a main lead in an anime series......the main lead.....black guy not the backup or the magical negro but like man who has the spotlight? Are you serious? No stupid stereotype like a baby chocobo in the afro or a ghetto talking former athlete who can't read and addicted to drugs?  A revolutionary step in anime. BOOYAH!
   
  
This has restored my faith in anime and I will cease all taking @%$^ about anime and their fanboys. Hello Big Appple Anime Fest guess who I'm gonna cosplay as.   

Wesley Snipes Approves

Saw it earlier in the day. Not much story thus far but I liked the animation. Could have been better but it works. I want to see where they take the story though. Looks like he's getting a love interest and Deacon Frost is going to be the main villain.

A guy whos half vampire fighting other Vampires, there's something original for Anime
 
Seriously though X-Men was good, but Iron Man and Wolverine were lack lust, I hope this one is good.

I just pretend that they do. Makes much more sense.

I think it's the best Blade has been written in a while, it's a shame Blade is at his best when he's not in marvel continuity. The movies, ultimate, and anime versions have all been cooler than the main one. I'm not prepared to be impressed by this anime as a whole though. The last three have been pretty boring (starting strong, finishing strong, but dragging through the middle).

So it's crap on a crap stick storywise, and has halfway decent animation... until, like on the other animes, they decide they need to do less animation and more stillframes because they overshot themselves. 
 
Seriously - how hard is it to find a Marvel story worth adapting, then adapt it? 
 
War World Hulk; Spiderman Maximum Carnage; Avengers disassembled; AoA; HoM; Marvel Zombies; Squadron Supreme; Chaos War; Secret Invasion; Fall and Rise of the New Mutants; ;pretty much anything from Deadpool + Cable... 
 
I'm just saying.  Most long-running anime is great because it adapts from mangas frame for frame. 
 
Now, yes, Madhouse isn't gonna do that w/ comic books.  BUT if they're doing redesigns and storyboarding, they might as well faithfully adapt an existing story that people might want to watch, not some bullshit "made for japanese" story like Ironman going gaga over a japanese reporter, or butcher a good wolverine story.  Look, everyone, it's DHS!

I wonder what they have in store for the vampiric vampire hunter. He looks badass. Not sure howI feel about the boldness. Is Whistler there to be doctoring Blade?
 
EDIT:

I Just saw an episode, it was pretty good. I didn't really care that he was bold cause the other things were good.

I'm surprised there was no news article onsite about this coming to G4TV on January 13th to run alongside the X-Men Anime?

The news has been all over G4 and the web for awhile now.

The x-men anime is done next week. Here's the G4 promo:
