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

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

BLADE is probably is one of those mundane Vampire-hunter story Anime's that's been roaming media as of now, but one good thing in here is that its the 1st Anime that I have watched that has a setting in the Philippines. To use the Philippine Folklore's Manananggal ang MAndurugo and to introduce some people in Mindanao is an honor for the other country to understand Philippine folks.
Though the dub should've been a Filipino language instead of Nihonggo. The graphics is great since its a mixed of Marvel so dont expect to see some Moe characters on to these one. Still music is lacking since its read more

Welcome, my lovely fans, to the final review of horror anime month. You know, I love Marvel comics, okay, I loved Marvel comics until the mid-90s and now I only love the old stuff. But there's one aspect where the company still produces decent stuff sometimes and that's the movies. One of the early movies was Blade and, though it had some issues, it was awesome. Even though Blade was kind of a strange choice since he was a relatively obscure character best known for his guest appearance in the 90s Spider-man cartoon. Naturally, with the success of the films Marvel made the decision to read more

Vampires killing vampires is the key aspect both series share. In addition to that both Alucard and Blade fights for the sake of a human being, and dedicate their life for accomplishing that goal of theirs. Action pack, violent, gory, what else can i say...
Dante and Blade are hybrid of two different races, rather it would be demon and human or vampire and human. Their job? To hunt down and kill the demon/ vampire race that preys on human. There will be violence and lots of it, along with action.
Same kind of Animation and story. Protagonist is someone hunting Vampires beside being one themselfs. They also hunger to take revenge on a certain vampire.
+Both have human experiments.
+Both main characters have sad past.
+Both have similar atmosphere,animation and plot .
Both main characters are half human, half vampires in quest against all vampires.
