Barely watched this in BD version, I really like this series and it can actually go on my \"Re-Watch Many Times\" list, the ending was sad but it was obvious even after the explanation of the first episode intro. How many of you have watched this?

I never got all through it since I didn\'t download the BD version of it.

But it\'s partially based on the comic series of the same name. So till I read through the comics first, I\'ll have to pass up on finishing witchblade the anime.

Dropped after three episodes when I realized it wasn\'t a loli anime.

Yeah it has one loli but it is mostly about her mother, well won\'t talk about it if no one has watched it yet or dropped it.

Finally took time and watched this a few days ago. I don\'t know exactly how to feel about it. I read through a 20-30 issues of the original American Comics.

I mean the anime is good, but it won\'t compete ever with the original source material. Also considering it\'s been changed heavily because it\'s being aimed at Japanese culture more so than americans. It just seems to have lost a lot of the edge that the original had.

I know I shouldn\'t compare either one to each other. But my biggest problem with it is that it\'s so badly Watered Down. To such a simple action adventure story rather than the dark complex story, filled with depth and drama that the original had... A very seinen style story if you will.
 
Eh, but I seem to be asking to much of studio Gonzo.
