I think it is cool how Anime and American story telling is starting to blend. How many cartoons can do you think are good but Anime influences i/e Avatar and how many Animes do you know are American influenced i/e Power puff Girls Z.

There are a lot out there cause around the 1990's is when the two worlds started to blend. but there are to many to name but I wanted to see how many people actually notice. I like how the two cultures are starting to collide artistically.

Come on man, the classics, the classics. Astro Boy was a an American Cartoon around the 50-60's but they made it into an anime around 2001? That date could be wrong but the point is the anime is not that old just the American one is.

Astro Boy (鉄腕アトム, Tetsuwan Atomu?, lit. "Mighty Atom") is a television series first broadcast in Japan from 1963 to 1966. The story follows the adventures of a robot boy and a selection of other characters along the way.

Astro Boy is the first Japanese television series that embodied the aesthetic that later became familiarized as anime.[verification needed] It originated as a manga in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, who is often reputed as the "god of manga".[1] After enjoying success abroad, Astro Boy was remade in the 1980s as Shin Tetsuwan Atomu, known as Astroboy in the United States and other Western countries, and again in 2003. For a time, Astro Boy enjoyed a level of popularity in Japan equivalent to Disney's image character Mickey Mouse.

So you see.....

Yes Japan made the anime but the original story and pics came from an a American Comic by the same name.


Witchblade is an American comic book series published by Top Cow Productions, an imprint of Image Comics, from 1995 until present. The series was created by Top Cow editors Marc Silvestri and David Wohl, writer Brian Haberlin, and artist Michael Turner


The series previously starred Sara Pezzini, a tough-as-nails NYPD homicide detective who comes into possession of the Witchblade, a supernatural, sentient artifact with immense destructive and protective powers. The weapon has bonded with various women throughout history, the most recent being Danielle Baptiste. Others who have come into contact with the Witchblade include Cleopatra and Joan of Arc. Sara struggles to hone the awesome powers of the Witchblade and fend off those with a nefarious interest in it, especially entrepreneur Kenneth Irons. She also struggles to maintain a personal life.

The title was written largely by Christina Z and edited by David Wohl. There have been talks of a reunion[citation needed], though it is unclear if that will occur.

There have been many spin-off titles, which place the Witchblade in other times and settings. The character of Sara Pezzini was also featured in crossovers with characters from other franchises, including Lara Croft, JLA, the X-Men's Wolverine, and the cast of Battle of the Planets.

Witchblade was adapted into a moderately successful television series in 2001-2002, starring Yancy Butler as Sara Pezzini.

The title was also adapted into an anime and manga series in 2004. Each takes place in a futuristic Japan and features a new blade-wielder, with little resemblance to Pezzini or to each other, in the role. There have been two soundtracks to the comic books series (which had a limited print run).

Did you know Witch Blade the anime actually came from an American comic. As well as the Highlander anime is created by an American. Afro Samurai was also a Japanese and American Collaboration. I think it is cool how Anime and American story telling is starting to blend. How many cartoons can do you think are good but Anime influences i/e Avatar and how many Animes do you know are American influenced i/e Power puff Girls Z.

There are a lot out there cause around the 1990's is when the two worlds started to blend. but there are to many to name but I wanted to see how many people actually notice. I like how the two cultures are starting to collide artistically.

No and those 3 highlander films were american films ( I was an advent Highlander fan back in the day). The novel you are talking about is also written by an American Novelist named Monica McCarty. Witch Blade novel you talking about was a graphic novel based on the comic that is why I told you to re-check your facts.
