Madhouse, Marvel and Animax have teamed up to put together an anime version of Blade. Is it about time? Did you know Blade first made a comic book appearance back in 1973 when he appeared in The Tomb of Dracula #10? Wikipedia could be tricking me for all I know; he feels a far younger anto-hero than that.
The anime has some big names lined up – directed by Mitsuyuki Masuhara (High School of the Dead, Death Note), written by Kenta Fukasaku (son of Kinji Fukasaku) with Akio Ohtsuka (Ghost in the Shell’s Batou) as the voice of Blade and singer/voice actress Maaya Sakamoto (Arakawa Under the Bridge’s Nino) as Makoto.
