New Anime Series- Blade

First Episode Review for: Blade

Summary : Marvel’s Blade Character takes his turn to receive the anime treatment

Animation : Looks EXACTLY like the X-men and Iron Man anime that preceded it, dark and very shiny, must be the official Marvel anime look. Pity they did not keep the Wesley Snipes look, the costume is from the movie Blade, but he is now bald and slightly chubby in the face

Plot Potential: Not bad, not bad, quite a lot of rote stuff, but they are adding plenty and the set pieces are as good as any other anime

Characters: Blade’s monologues are good, and the new support characters (well new to me as I’m not normally a Blade fan) are surprisingly deep

Music: Like the animations this has been done in the same vein as the other 2 Marvel Animes

Reminds me of: Other Marvel Anime

Overall: With the success of the X-men and Iron man adaptations, and the general obsession with vampires , this was going to happen sooner or later and they continue to do a good job of the conversions

Disclaimer: These are mini reviews of anime that are fresh out in Japan and are not licensed in the UK, buy them once they have been licensed or at the very least buy the merchandise, remember if the anime makers make a loss, THEY WILL STOP MAKING ANIME!!
