Of course I knew about it. I watched the entire series. IMO it's a mediocre anime, but I liked it because it's Witchblade.

Ok so I was watching IFC(Independent Film Channel) last night and saw that they were showing WitchBlade. Now I have never read the comic, but I am kinda familiar with it. The episode I watched last night was a pretty good one. I couldnt find anything on youtube for it but I did find something from the first season. I'm just curious if anyone else knew about it...

Hey I didnt know xP I caught it on IFC and was like WTF?

The episode I watched was something about Reina having to take care of a kid. And having another.. And someone was responsible for having all these hypergened kids or something like that.

i've watched a few episodes of it...

meh... it's nothing special, it's the usual post apocalyptic spin on the Witchblade story with a weird twist involving tentacles and children...

i watched 3 episodes then gave up and went back to the comics, if you're looking for a Witchblade series on TV, there's the live action one that was marginally better than the anime for keeping to the comics, but aside from that...

just stick with the comics :p

Methos, Yeah well I love Anime and for me to have never read the comics it is a pretty good show. Aside from it not relating really to the comic. For someone new to it all it would be a good show.. But for someone who knows well enough about the comics, like you, it doesnt fit in.

Oh and by the way.. I put this in the right forum nods Just wanted to point that out xP.

#7 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

you did... it's in the Sara Pezinni forum :D

so who's the witchnblade wielder in the anime? just out of curiosity

#8 Posted by Kiara_Sullivan (30074 posts) - - Show Bio

Sara is. But in the episode I watched last night. A company was trying to make more Witchblades. Hence the hypergened kiddies. One of them was a child of Reina. While Reina was taking over mothering a child that Reina had been raising.. But the kid looked more like Reina then Sara.

#13 Posted by zero edge (3692 posts) - - Show Bio

Which is why I despise dubbing. She's Masane, even called that in a Top Cow comic book.

Both lol

It's a very anime thing to super exaggerate breasts to the point where physics have no bounderies.

#19 Posted by zero edge (3692 posts) - - Show Bio

No, don't think it's really needed. Witchblade doesn't have a super large history so everything can pretty much be tossed in that main page.

#20 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

they should do a proper Witchblade Cartoon, following the first major arc in the comics... with decent artwork as well... that would kick ass :D

#21 Posted by Kiara_Sullivan (30074 posts) - - Show Bio

Now I will say on teh episode I watched last night The girl, who they were calling Sara, was taken to an orphanage where she grew up. And she was told she had another name.. what it is i dont remember xP Prolly what ZE just showed me...

I have no problem with good anime... Ghost in the Shell TV show rocked, so did Dominion...

it's bad anime i have a problem with, and this version of Witchblade just didn't do anything for me...

I'll agree with you there, it's nothing more then a mediocre anime, only reason I kept watching was because of the Witchblade name.

That's the only reason i gave it a chance, but it wasn't enough to pull me back to watch more of it...

i can honestly say i watched more of the Live Action Witchblade TV series than i did of that anime...

We did the exact opposite thing. I didn't like the live action haha

#31 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

the live action was alright...

the actual Witchblade gauntlet was complete crap, but the actress playing Sara was quite hot :p

#32 Posted by zero edge (3692 posts) - - Show Bio

It looks like a metal glove lol.

#33 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah, it was a bit crap lol

but they had the police angle right, and most of the characterization was spot on, and Ian Nottingham kicked ass in it, even though the clone angle for him was a bit crap...

#34 Posted by Kiara_Sullivan (30074 posts) - - Show Bio

ZE, That was ment for Methos xP But maybe Boucing boobs did remind me of you xP

I like the old Animes. Before boobs became a big need xP I dont remember Kagome ever being chesty xP Sango was in her Demon Slayers outfit... (Inuyasha Reference)

#35 Posted by zero edge (3692 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah there are 14 year olds (in animes) that have bigger breasts then Kagome lol

Makes sense, animes guys are always pretty boys. Japanese loves the pretty boys... it's in they're culture for some reason.

I can name you a few other animes with hot guys if you want.

#44 Posted by zero edge (3692 posts) - - Show Bio

Let's start with the obvious. Dragonball Z, I'm sure girls dig Goku's weird spikey hair.... then there's Naruto if you're under 18 years old, he might be hot for you... well anyways I was joking obviously.

Kenshin

Great Teacher Onizuka

Gundam Seed

Full Metal Panic

Outlaw Star

Ranma 1/2

A couple good romance ones I loved.

Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien/The eternity you wish for/Rumbling Hearts - This is actually one of the top animes out there

Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou/Kare Kano/His and Her Circumstances - also good comedy

And I have to mention Azumanga Daioh... it's just hilarious.

All of them have some form of hot guy in it.

#45 Posted by Kiara_Sullivan (30074 posts) - - Show Bio

I will look into them... Except Naruto xP I was a big Goku fan back in teh day. Even had a crush on Brock back when pokemon was big xP

I'm almost 22 and still love Anime :-D

Oh Samurai Deeper Kyo is good as was Gokusen (sp?)

The anime is not that bad for me. Masane, the Witchblade and the concept of the cloneblade is a good storyline. It is just like a tale of the witchblade for me.

As for the t.v. version, I am pretty much disappointed how things were played out, like the character of Yancy Butler, Sara Pezinni, has the same face as the other wielder of the witchblade. The only interesting in the t.v. series was the episode of the super soldiers and the concept of the young curator that was later used in the comics but was made into an old man.

The witchblade comics is of course the best, specially Sara Pezzini but as the years got by, it started to lag, but revived with a strong twist of killing main characters and the witchblade choosing a new host. I do miss the Tales of the Witchblade though that talks about the past and future bearer of the witchblade.
