    Not bad, worth considering
    It's rare you see an anime with fan-service have depth to their characters. Witchblade is the exception to the rule. Initial impressions may seem like it's going to be a breast-driven action anime in the same vein as Queen's Blade, but it ends up being closer to Seirei no Moribito. So what we get is a character-driven drama with some scantily-clad action scenes.

    There are a few reasons this ...

    One under rated anime, very well developed plot even though it has fan service.
    I loved this anime when it came out. A lot of people do not really give it a chance, as you can see from the picture they use, they think it is going to be one of this fan-service non plot anime.

    Yes, it does have it, but if you look past it, it really action pack. It shows how far a mother love will go for her own daughter. The music is amazing, its kind of pump up. The characters have back ...

  • Amazingly fun adventure
    Witchblade is a great explanation of family as well as an all out ecchi-thriller. You grow with the characters and come to truly love their flaws as well as their determinations. Repeatedly in the show we are entertained with visual effects as well the determination of one mother to be a cut above the rest when it comes to loving her daughter!

  • Loved it, and it's message
    As someone who raised herself, this anime portrayed perfectly the true care a mother has for her child. I also like how they portrayed her as erotic, without making her dirty. That it's okay for a woman to enjoy lust and strength.
    I recommend all to watch this at least once.

    Would love season 2!
    I know how it ends with such a "were not going to continue with this anime" vibe but it would be nice to have a second season where Rihoko is the witchblade wearer or somehow Masane comes back to life. Either way it would be interesting to do, but knowing how good this first season was it probably wont be as good... but still it would be awesome if season 2 was released!

    Gonzo with all it entails
    The animation is great, especially for how old it is.
    The story has a lot of promise at the beginning.
    However, like everything else Gonzo does, it doesn't hold up to the end.
    Time and again, they take a wonderful premise and then don't know what to do with it.

    A Mother's Love is Immense
    As a person who is not familiar with the original comic, this is a great introduction to the series. A show with a premise of an all powerful weapon that can only be wielded by a woman usually comes off as a way to show scantily clad women fighting, but it's more than that.

    Masane loves her daughter and is willing to do anything for her, which is why a show of this length would have dragged on ...
