Maybe it's because Marvel has such a large number of characters and groups that they're constantly dealing with copyrighted names. But I thought Blade would be the last franchise to become an anime. Especially since Wesley Snipes ruined the franchise by fleeing the IRS.

But here it is; in all it's non-sparkling, blood-filled glory.

Madhouse must be credited for giving this vampire monster of a Marvel show life; with 75% action and 25% tragedy. And even then. This show feels heavily cliched and over-the-top near the end. More-so over-the-top than "Certain Mutant Logan" and "That Rich Boy Can't Be That Heroically Iron-Clad." "Scott & His Mutant Companions" ...

Mixed Feelings
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. ...

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 ...
