Fanservice on the outside, OUTSTANDING story on the inside...
13 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think my biggest gripe with the Witchblade Anime series might be that because of its style (ie: supple and typically barely covered female anatomy), many potential viewers will be quick to write it off as nothing more than a peep show. While it may be true that Witchblade does contain fanservice en-masse, the story is what is truly remarkable here.

The trials and tribulations the lead characters endure from beginning to end brought me to tears several times throughout. The characters are lovable, the action is intense, and the characters reactions to the events that are unfolding around them are exceedingly well done.

Yes, there will be moments where the series drags its feet and to that I say, what series hasn't? No media can go full bore all the time without becoming mindless (At least in my opinion). Still, even through the slower moments of Witchblade, the story gradually progresses, until reaching a conclusion that still has me begging for more.

I could honestly go on for quite some time about how much I truly, and completely enjoyed every bit of this series. However, at risk of getting into spoilers and potential tirades, I leave you with this: If you like anime, and enjoy a great story with fantastic characters, and great action, give Witchblade a try. You won't be disappointed.
