Product Description

Enter the Cloneblades!

Twisted reflections of Masane’s alter ego, the Cloneblades stand at the very pinnacle of bioengineering and shattered corporate alliances. A breed of frightful warriors, confrontation is inevitable when so many share the same desire: The Witchblade. The quest for control of history’s ultimate power will pave the streets with innocent blood, and the threats to Masane are without count. As the past creeps into the present to haunt them all, relationships between unsteady foes lie revealed, old scars explained but never forgotten. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust… Not even the bearer proves immortal.

Witchblade Volume Two-2 contains episodes 5-8: Search, Change, Past and Reciprocity.

Amazon.com

As the jiggle adventure Witchblade continues, Masane and the view learn more about the mysterious title weapon. When the Douji Group did research on it with the government agency NSWF, they created the "Cloneblades," feeble imitations of the ancient original. Although the Witchblade supposedly endows the wielder with "insatiable lust and unthinkable power," Masane doesn't exhibit either quality. She loses a fight to a Cloneblade-user and spends most of her down time fussing. Masane's bratty daughter and photojournalist manqué Yusuke Tozawa provide minimal comic relief. At one point, Yusuke says he's never published anything; a few minutes later, he's attacked by a politician because a magazine printed Yusuke's photos of him with his mistress. But the improbable plot twists don't really matter. Witchblade is aimed at a fan-service audience, and the series delivers so much skin and gore, it plays like an episode of The Dark Knight starring Little Annie Fanny. (Rated TV MA, suitable for ages 16 and older: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, risqué humor, nudity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

The second volume of Witchblade opens with a confrontation between Masane and the "Cloneblades", minions of the NSWF, who wield copies of the original Witchblade. NSWF sees itself as the rightful owner of the Witchblade and is willing to use hook or crook to get it back from Douji Industries. Reina Soho, the daughter of NSWF's founder, was actually the host of the Witchblade until the big earthquake 6 years ago that devastated Tokyo and led to its choosing of Masane as its next wielder. Now Reina is a Cloneblade but she is beginning to suspect that the copies are somehow absorbing their hosts. Her suspicions are confirmed when Shioro Tsuzuki's Cloneblade begins to drive her to kill innocent people in its lust for blood. We also learn about the one time alliance between Douji and NSWF to research the Witchblade and of the relationship between Reina and Douji's head, Reiji Takayama. And then there's Yusuke, the sometimes seedy photographer that is beginning to become convinced that the bumbling and dim-witted Masane is actually the superpowered monster fighting Witchblade wielder as well.

The thing I like about Witchblade is the fact that it can be convoluted without becoming confusing. There are a lot of subplots going on with this show, like the former relationship between Reina and Reiji, that are given just enough exposition to make them make sense, but without overloading the viewer's brain with pointless info. This goes for most of the other plot points as well. Volume 2 also fleshes out the characters a bit more and gives them more depth. Reina is especially intruiging because she seems to be a prime factor in the giant earthquake that rocked the country.

The first volume in this series was good enough to leave me wanting to find out more, and it had an extremely intriguing ending. In this installment we find out more about the Cloneblades, which obviously, as their name indicate, are imitations of the Witchblade, born as a result of biotechnology and with a power only slightly inferior than the original. This together with the concept of voluptuous women, in skimpy clothes, fighting to death, sounds like a formula for a good anime.

Sadly, I expected much more, like for example, a plot that evolved, providing new layers to the story. The volume is clearly lacking in this sense, and after I was done with the four episodes I felt that the story barely moved forward. I am not sure if this is just a ploy to make the series longer, but there is enough great anime available in the market for me to spend much more time pursuing this one if things do not improve. I will probably give it one more opportunity with the next volume, and if things remain the same I will move on to greener pastures. It is true, this series still has some interesting characters, like Rihoko and Yusuke, but that is not enough to redeem this volume.

My recommendation for the people that watched the first volume is to go for this one only if you really liked the first one and are curious as to what happens next, but be aware that you may be disappointed. Even the extras in this disc are lackluster and do not come even close to the quality of the ones on the first disc.

A great story and series which doesn't get enough recognition sometimes. But this volume is awesome and the slip cover is so damn cool with Top cow illustrations on the front and funimation illustrations on the back.

I was interested in the series which was view on TV. I enjoy collecting good anime, yet due to the economy purchasing the anime I enjoy from the retailer is not an option due to the value & price range of the items. I am gald amazon has reasonable prices & a wide range of seller who can meet the buyers demand. More impressed with the arrive time of the my order & how well the merchandise was package with care from the seller. Many times online purchasing can be rather hesitant but I am planning to make furture purchases with amazon & its vendors.

this is the second install of the series, there is great detail in the animation and the story starts exactly where the first set ended. the witchblade series is nothing like the comics or the television series. this is the story of another owner of the blade. it is great.
