Mamiko Noto is the only reason I decided to watch Witchblade. Seriously. Only reason. Would never have bothered otherwise since its not usually my kinda thing. Though every now and then I give stuff like it a whirl, for a change of pace from all the moe and school girls.
Am on episode 10/11 now (started watching 11, but fell asleep bought half way through, due to it being almost 4am lol.) Finding Masamune very endearing. It may just be Mamiko, but still, very very sweet. Rihoko too. Both very sweet. Have already figured out a few main plot points, doesn’t take a genius, but I’m still trying to avoid any spoilers. Wiki is not helpful for avoiding spoilers lol. Only saw something I’d already figured out though thank goodness.
He has such funny shaped eyebrows… still lovely though lol. Least its not all busty ladies. I have Takayama if I feel like fawning over anything 2D while watching Witchblade lol, after all, I’ve finished Sexy Voice and Robo sadly. And theres no second series….. No more cute robot-otaku(‘Itadakimax!!!’) Matsuyama-kun….
Theres a figure I wouldn’t mind getting of Masamune, the Alter normal outfit version, not the super-scant Witchblade outfit. I’m still looking around for her, will be hard I guess since she was released in 2007… Damn me being slow on the uptake. Lots of lovely photos of Danny’s Alter Masamune here. And lots more photos in general of figures, Tokyo, events etc at his flickr too.
Anyways, its quater to 3am here, I’m finally watching In Bruges, will probably stop soon, before 3, and hit the hay/watch some Witchblade. Can watch the last part of 11 and then the full ep 12. As I always say, I’ll try to post more frequently… but will it actually happen? lol We shall see, shan’t we?
EDIT: Little overview after 12 episodes, so far, still going strong, nice character development, enough reveals to keep you interested, I woulda been happy with less frankly, I put up with Lost after all lol. Theres also Maria, I’m looking forward to seeing her progress.
