Who doesn’t love the vamp slayer Blade? I mean come on, he’s half vampire and half human! He has all of the vampires strengths but none of their weaknesses! Now you can view him in the brand new Anime series! Read on for details.
According to Marvel, Blade will premiere on Friday, January 13th at 11 p.m. ET/PT pm G4TV.
Blade has been directed by Mitsuyuki Masuhara (Chi’s Sweet Home, Kobato), and was written by Kenta Fukasaku (Battle Royale). Tetsuya Takahashi (Appleseed, Resident Evil: Degeneration, previous Marvel anime series) handles the music.
“Harold Perrineau voices Eric Brooks, the supernatural Daywalker known as Blade, making his animated series debut with more action, terrifying villains and bloodthirsty monsters than you’ve ever seen before. Following in the steps of other hit Marvel anime series, Blade offers viewers 12 half-hour weekly episodes destined to leave you wanting more, exclusively on G4.”
Blade’s mother was bitten by a vampire while pregnant, imbuing her unborn son with vampire strength and a thirst for blood, but without the vulnerability to sunlight. A master of weaponry with a desire to avenge the death of his mother, Blade finds himself in Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia in an effort to take down the evil villain, Deacon Frost. With vampire hunter Makoto at his side, they will stop at nothing to destroy Existence, a vampire organization with roots deeply embedded in Asia.
