Marvels try to get a chip in the anime genre is entertaining and amusing at best.
Preset old characters, giving nothing new to the serie, and only thing new in the serie is introduction of different world type vampires. Gargoyles, lamieres, gorgons... All the same, Vampires. As with this "upgrade" Eric is not fighting "humanid" creatures anylonger, ofc there are those pureblood classic vampires, but on the same time blade is fighting with demons and mutants.

Sure, as a blade believer, this series is definetly worth watching, but it brings nothing new to the genre, instead it is using every single mannover there is on the genre. read more

Naturally, with the success of the films Marvel made the decision to read more

(I try to keep my reviews short and sweet and straight to the point without giving away spoilers with that said lets get this show on the road)

Marvel dipping their hand in the anime field. This anime is mediocre with no real jaw dropping moments. We all no the Blade story he hunts vampires end of story. I feel like they should have added a little more extremeness to make more then someone just slashing a sword a vampires for their own personal reason.

1. Blood Shed their is a lot of blood to go around for every.
2. Action a good amount of fighting (gotta read more

Now let’s get into Marvel Animation. Like DC Comics is having trouble with their theatrical releases aside from the Nolan Batman movies, Marvel is doing worse in their animation department considering from I heard on the internet about the two beloved series Spectacular Spider-Man & the Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes got canceled mostly due to Disney being a part of Marvel and after seeing Ultimate Spider-Man, fans were pissed at the result of that show and while that happened, Marvel decided to cross into anime territory along with the help of studio MADHOUSE with Marvel Anime, a 4-part anime project that reintroduces them for read more
