Critics Review: WitchBlade

Witchblade; an ancient, intelligent, living weapon so powerful; civilizations last hope. The main plot revolves around a woman names Masane Amaha and the supernatural powers of the "WitchBlade".She finds that she must employ the Witchblade to combat a much greater and frighteningly organization that threatens the very soul of humanity. She’s at time clumsy and ditzy but her perseveres is not looked down upon when in battle against NSWF's "daughters":the neogene cloneblade. Man-made humans far superior than any human whose power resembles the witchblade. Her contact with the witchblade takes us to a catastrophic event that happened in tokyo prior to the series, which left questions to be answered and her past slowly revealed. As Masane tries to keep the secret of the witchblade, do her job and have a personal life, she finds that her most formidable adversary may be the witchblade itself. What lies in the past is the answers of the existence of the witchblade. Justice is defined as "to uphold a rightful duty", but at what cost?

When I first heard of witchblade, from a friend awhile back. The first thing that came to my mind was the comic. I’ve seen my shares of comics turned animation. Some I enjoyed and others not quite that much. To tell you the truth I’d put off watching this one because I figured it’d be a waste of my time. Like they say never judge a book by its cover; this put in in motion. It came about when I was clicking the remote finding a good show to watch and I was almost about to fall asleep in the couch and call it a day and their it was(the show I mean)..I was watching the fighting scene between Masane and this weird looking guy-monster thing that turned into a robot, so I left it on hoping to doze off within a couple of minutes but it proved me wrong. After that the rest was history .Overall the witchblade anime series has far exceeded my expectations.

Age Rating: TV-MA (Mature):contains bloody violence, use of bad language,adult content

Japanese version all the way

This is based off a graphic done in the USA. But became an anime and it is well done to me. The story is pretty good and is balanced with action, drama, and some comedy. The music was good too, and I'm referring to the background music. The ending songs were okay, not the best to me though. As for the animation, awesome. I think this is an anime worth watching if you like watching hot and busty anime babes take on forms and do crazy fights.

witchblade reviewer'

In this new approach to the Witchblade universe, the lead character (and blade wielder) is Masane Amaha, a kind-hearted woman who, despite her good intentions, is fairly clumsy and not good around the house. She lost her memory during a catastrophical unknown event that ravaged Tokyo and, curiously, Masane was found unscathed in the phenomenon’s ground zero, holding a baby in her arms. Six years later, she returns to Tokyo with the child, now called Rihoko, and for whom she cares as a daughter, where she discovers that the mysterious jewel attached to her right wrist is actually the legendary artifact known as the Witchblade. Since then Masane got herself involved in the struggle for power between a huge corporation and a government agency, while trying to live her life peacefully with her daughter.
