Blade Action Anime’s Lead Actor Announced

After the great success, unusual for a remake of a Marvel story through anime, of Blade, it was no surprise to know of its translation in English. After just a bit of time, the voice cast for this version of the series was announced. The role that we’re all excited about, Blade the vampire slayer himself will be played by Harold Perrineau. Pirrineau is famous for his roles in 28 Weeks Later, Romeo + Juliet and none other than Link himself from the Matrix franchise.

The announcement was made at this year’s New York Comic Con’s “Marvel Television Presents: Anime on G4” panel.

This definitely sounds like a good actor to have for a voice, doesn’t it? Now all we need is to know who will do the voices of the other characters…


Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.

I will not watch it, but good news they’re hiring actors for a change… Most dubbers are soooooo bad.


Hmmm…they’re certainly trying harder compared to the usual casts.


They take a comic, turn it into an anime and translate it to English… Weird industry…
