Product Description

Eric Brooks – known as Blade – seeks revenge on Deacon Frost, the vampire who killed his mother while she was still pregnant with Eric. With all the powers of a vampire and none of their weaknesses, Blade's quest leads him throughout Southeast Asia in search of Frost. In the Golden Triangle, he discovers a vampire plot that threatens to take down the whole world.

Amazon.com

Blade marks the final collaboration between Marvel Entertainment and anime giant Madhouse Inc., which previously released Japanese-influenced adaptations of such iconic comic titles as Iron Man, X-Men, and Wolverine. The Blade series also transposes half-vampire Eric Brooks to Japan, where his search for Deacon Frost, the monster that murdered his mother and transformed him into a "daywalker" at birth, leads him to a cabal of vampires known as Existence that plague the whole of Asia. The 12 episodes that comprise the complete Blade series follow his pursuit of the undead creatures with the help of a young vampire hunter named Makoto, which invariably leads to chanbara-style action. Blade obviously lends itself well to the anime style, interspersing exceptionally violent action with moments of introspection that reveal much of Blade's back story. Where the series stumbles is the quality of its writing, which never rises above the purplest of pulp levels; fans may wish to utilize the disc's subtitled Japanese-language track instead of the English dub, which features the capable Harold Perrineau as Blade. The modest extras are comprised of three brief featurettes on the show's development and execution. --Paul Gaita

There are a lot of repeated frames and single cell frames.

I have watched both the X-Men series and Iron Man series and I really thought this one was the best of the three. I thought X-Men series had no action at all and should not even been called X-Men series. It was more of them just standing/sitting around and talking about their enemies and who is behind all of this events happening. If they weren't doing that than they would be standing/sitting around and playing mind games with each other. The "actually fighting" would last about 30 seconds or so for each show. Not an action pack series at all. Iron Man was much better than X-Men, but not as good as Blade.

What makes Blade better than the other two series? It has the right storyline, action, and characters mix all in one. In every show, you will get to see Blade "actually fighting" and he is kicking butt at it. He also knows how to fight and talk at the same time. Amazing!

The series has rememberable characters and are used well to make a great story. They really try to build up every main character and explained their reasons why they're fighting the vampires. Each one has their own story to tell and each one has a different reason for fighting. Even the main villain has a story to tell! I started to really care for each character more and more as I learned more about them more.

I love how in this show has Blade doing special deadly sword techniques. He would kill harder and tougher enemies with his special sword techniques. Also, they slowly introduce each sword technique he knows how to do. This was done very well in the series as they didn't rush it all in. I started to think how many does he know? How many are there? Blade starts doing harder more advantage sword technique as his enemies get harder to kill. Well done, I thought.

If you were disappointed with Iron Man or X-Men series than you need to watch this show because this one is way better than those two series!

I've never been a big fan of Marvel Comics. I don't read any of their titles on a regular basis. I enjoy all the movies, but fancy myself more of a DC guy. The Marvel characters I gravitate towards seem to be the anti-heroes and darker ones like Ghost Rider, the Punisher, and Blade.

I like all the Blade films and the short-lived TV series. What's not to like about watching a half-vampire / half-human who uses his namesake to eradicate the evil bloodsuckers of the world? Now we get to enjoy an anime version of the vampire hunter's adventures thanks to Marvel and Japan's Madhouse.

The "Blade" Anime Series includes all 12 episodes on 2 DVDs. The show takes off when Eric Brooks, known in the vampire world as Blade, goes on the hunt for Deacon Frost. Frost is a rare four-fanged fiend that killed Brooks' mother. Blade partners up with several interesting characters in his quest for vengeance. He even runs into Wolverine in one of the episodes.
The animation for this show is superb. There's plenty to keep your eyes glued to the screen. The colors are vibrant and the artwork is stylish. Fans of anime will love it and those who don't necessarily enjoy the style will appreciate it for the gory visuals and intelligent storylines.

Writer Warren Ellis (Secret Avengers) penned the tale for the series. It's intricate and each episode ties together, forcing you to keep up. It's not a show you can jump into in the middle. Even if one segment stands alone, there's so much occurring in the background that viewers will be lost when it comes to events the characters discuss regularly.
The special features included in the collection will thrill fans. There's a 30-minute documentary entitled "Special Talk Session: Marvel Anime's 'Blade' and 'Wolverine.
