I kid you not,'Blade' the anime series(1-12) is the best CB character based animated show I EVER watched!
See for yourself, free at
However , I don't think this new series is going to measure up to the bar the anime series set- it's pretty damn high!

@GreendaleHumanBeing- nice one. BTW, where the hell was Walt in the final season? He was suppose to be mystically relevant somehow.

Cool choice. I don't know why, but I thought Mekhi Phifer was gonna voice Blade.

Speaking of what we'd like to see...X-Force anyone!
You know the Japanese won't hold back on the violence.
