Never heard of the director before. So I ANN'd him. I loved BECK ep 21. One of the best episode of the series. He hasn't done anything important though. I wonder if this'll be any good. At least with X-men we had some hope, cause Afro Samurai team was working on it.

MUTHAFREAKING BLADE

BLADE


I can say that a million times and my surprise will not be sated :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

Well at least they're continuing with the Madhouse/Marvel collaborations. I never in a million years would've imagined BLADE to become an anime... despite being absolutely perfect for it :eek:

So Blood-C and Blade... vampire hunting is gonna be so much fun this season :D

I'm amused that the director for Chi's Sweet Home and Kobato is directing this! :heh::heh:

He has a funny portfolio. He's the assistant director of Gungrave, Tokyo Tribe 2, and Shigurui, which would indicate that he has some experience with action, but yet the only shows he has actually directed himself are Kobato and Chi's Sweet Home. Lol.

You and me both. I was very surprise to hear that Blade was being animated. It will be interesting to see how this turns out. In truth, I am now hoping to hear that they do an anime version of Spider-man and his Amazing Friends just to see how that will look.

Here's a new Blade trailer with actual animation footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpGeincTA08

Haohmaru 2011-06-03 20:08

Oh oh. That didn't look good at all. Don't know if I'll be following.

Looks pretty bad. The action looks hilarious. :(

felix 2011-06-10 16:06

Looks pretty terribad. His expression in particular, but everything else ain’t so great either.

Haohmaru 2011-06-10 20:38

Wow this is one of the worst anime I've seen in a very long time. I wasn't expecting much, but that trailer was absolutely horrid.

oh wow
are you come from the future?

Haohmaru 2011-06-11 20:58

From what I can judge of of that trailer obviously. This looks pretty much as shitty as Ultraviolet or whatever that anime was called.

Masuzu 2011-06-11 22:17

wtf, what's next, spiderman? (although i'd like to see that :heh:)

4th TV spot. Not looking any better. Lol.

Arabesque 2011-07-01 16:18

Hey guys, you remember how we all watched X-men, and were all in awe at how decent it was? How much the animation and fights looked nice, how the characters were likable and how much fun we all had talking about it?

Yeah, this isn't going to happen here.

Looks like X-men turning out good was some sort of cosmic error. The Planets must have gotten out of orbit or something. Oh well, since we all got on this one way train of Marvel-Anime, I guess it's only logical we all see it through, right?

Haohmaru 2011-07-01 16:57

Watched episode 1. Not making myself watch anymore. One of the lowest budget animes I've seen in a while. It says enough when the OP has like 10 frames of animation lol.

duckroll 2011-07-01 16:59

I don't even want to post about what I watched. Lol.
