Witchblade the Anime and TV show
Back before all we had was X-men the movie and Blade we didn’t have the bevy of Comic Book mayhem we have today. No Walking Dead or Arrow. We were two years away from Smallvile and Spider-man really exploding the media of Superheroes.
In 2000 we got Witchblade the made for TV movie and then two season over the summer on TNT, staring Yancy Butler. The show and movie came out on DVD a few years back and really is worth checking out. It ended on a cliff hanger as do most shows that get canceled before they were suppose too.
It was decent and followed the comic very well and even brought some much needed seriousness to what was at the time a T and A bad joke. The show didn’t have the gauntlet tear Sarah’s clothes apart and Butler actually looked like a NY cop pretty and bad ass. Not the porn star style body Sarah has in the comics.
Unfortunately the show was canceled and rumors are the star was drunk a lot on set. Look it up I’m not a gossip column.
Years went by and we never saw another version until 2006 Funimation the anime company teamed up with Top Cow to produce an anime show set in the future with a new bearer of the Witchblade. Masane Amaha is a single mother trying to survive in Neo Tokyo and has been chosen as the new bearer of the mystical gauntlet. She ends up working for the owner of the Dojo Group in Japan and has to put a stop to their hay wire Neo Genes cyborgs. Its boobs monsters and bloody good times. I mean LOTS OF BOOBS cleavage and no nudity BTW. Its anime what do you expect ART?? Wait ignore that last part some anime is Art.
This is a decent anime show even if its silly and filled with silly extra characters. The Witchblade feeds off Masane energy and she gets very aroused from killing to the point she is in ecstasy. Watch Frozen the anime show its very similar.
The show is on blu ray and DVD and worth picking up. Its filled with bonus material galore. Including interviews with people who worked on the comic book like Top Cow co creator Mark Silvestri.
