New ‘Blade’ Anime Site and Footage Arrive [Video]

It’s been almost two years since the initial announcement of Marvel’s X-Men, Wolverine, Iron Man and Blade Madhouse anime projects, but the line will finally come full circle as everybody’s favorite vampire slayer’s series debuts in Japan on July 1. Animax has launched a new website providing a look at the series’ cast of characters, along with a short video teaser. See what you make of Blade’s anime adventures after the jump.While the Blade anime hasn’t received an official release date in North America or an localized English dub cast, the Japanese staff seems pretty interesting. Directing is Mitsuyuki Masuhara with a script by Battle Royale movie franchise veteran Kenta Fukasuka.

Story details are also fairly sparse, but shoddy online translations of the site’s Japanese text make it pretty clear that Blade will be teaming up with a young vampire hunter from Japan, plus Noah Van Helsing (of the Helsings!) and his awesome dog Razor against the evil Deacon Frost and his minions in Asia. Good guys vs. bad guys in a cool part of the world? Seems pretty solid so far.
