Product Description

The Descent of Madness!

The brutal, bloodied path of the Witchblade and the calculated cruelty of corporate cutthroat make for desperate bedfellows, with sides being chosen even as the final battle approaches. Poor Masane, current bearer of the blade, is the unwilling ground zero for the swelling chaos that approaches. And those dearest to the destined are in the greatest danger of all. As leaders rise and leaders fall, alliances shift and tumble, the lust for complete control of history’s weapon, for the power promised, surge and pulse through the veins of all that have been touched by the Witchblade.

Witchblade Volume Five-5 contains episodes 17-20: Confusion, Feelings, Turn and Request.

Amazon.com

As the fan-service fantasy Witchblade continues, the plots and counterplots multiply. The unctuous Wadou schemes to unseat Takayama at Douji Industries. Wadou pursues the "Ultimate Blade" experiments, creating a weapon that either sex can employ. But when his secretary uses it to attack Masane, she cleans the hapless flunky's digital clock. Maria, the leader of "Neo-Genes," suddenly decides to seize control of Douji Industries herself. How and why she went from an undisciplined, infantile killer to a disciplined, mature killer isn't really explained, but the unsavory genetic experiments that produced her clearly aren't paying off the way they were supposed to. Between fracases, the filmmakers pad the episodes with bonding moments involving Masane, Riho, and Takayama. Although the plot stumbles along like Masane after a binge, there's plenty of violence and bare skin to service the fans. (Rated TV MA, suitable for ages 16 and older: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, risqué humor, sexual situations, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

personally I like alot of action in my anime with a decent story, for me the story dosn't have to be all that great.Witchblade on the other hand has a good story but in this volume I feel the action is lacking. The writers chose to concentrate more on having the characters doing other thigs rather that have them fight and I was dissapointed because of that. and because of that I don't think I will watch this series again or at least not for a long time when I'm bored and I've forgotten what this anime is all about. I just love lots of violence in my anime thats all.

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 one of the best volumes yet in my opinion. Now, with the Witchblade series near the end things heat up as Douji Group Industries comes under fire and a new clone blade emerges. Masane finds out how powerful the Witchblade truly is and an unbelievable plot twist takes place at the NSWF. This is sure to get the audiences attention as Masane now fights for her life, love, and freedom to live with her daughter in peace.

Super sexy anime based on the graphic novel line that Top Cow has been faithfully producing for many years, now. Linked closely to the Darkness in the books, and thus Magdalena, there is no tie-in to the traditional myhtos here: slightly disappointing, but still a ton of hot action. Definitely not suitable for young viewers, gratuitous violence, sexual content and adult situations. Superb anime.
