Well Hello Blade, Where The Hell Have You Been?

Marvel’s favorite vampire-hunting black man is finally back in the spotlight, and not a moment too soon. Joining the ranks of Iron Man, Wolverine, and X-men, Blade will premier in his own Japanese anime.

Is it any good? Well, that’s a pretty tricky question to answer. Was the Wolverine anime good? How about the Iron Man one? If you’ve seen those series then you have a pretty good idea of what you’re getting into with Blade. If you haven’t…I’m sorry to¬†disappoint¬†you, but expect mediocrity. It’s certainly a visually appealing show, but there’s obviously something lost in translation (pun intended).

Check it out for yourself in the new trailer below:

As much as I try to like Marvel’s foray into the world of anime, I get the impression that these are mostly soulless adaptations. They’re certainly pretty, but something gets bastardized in the transformation.

What’d you guys think? Sound off below.

Heyo. I'm Nick Dourian, the Editor-In-Chief around these parts. Now, I went to a few other sites, read a few awesome bios, and I really want to fabricate a badass origins story for myself, but I'm feeling particularly unimaginative today, so 'f' that jazz. I read comics, drink bourbon, and cook meats. Imagine Ron Swanson, but with a fuller beard and cuter eyes.
