Witchblade Anime Seriesavailable
Top Cow Productions -- in a partnership with renowned animation studios Funimation and studio GONZO -- has announced that 'Witchblade: The Anime Series' is available for free (that's right, free ) download on iTunes starting today through October 26. According to Top Cow's press release, 'Witchblade' is the first U.S. comic book property to be made into an anime.
A best-selling comic in its own right, 'Witchblade' tells the tale of Sara Pezzini, a woman who becomes the bearer of an ultra-powerful (and even moreso destructive) ancient weapon known as the Witchblade. However, in the anime version of the story, we follow a new heroine named Masane Amaha, a lone wanderer who stumbles upon the powerful Witchblade in Tokyo in the distant future. Soon, Masane finds herself in the middle of a war between Tokyo factions, and must decide how to use the power of the Witchblade.
