Anime News Network and Sci-Fi Wire are reporting that
Funimation has announced that the first episode of the
Anime spinoff of Top Cow’s moderately successful comic
series “Witchblade” is being made available on iTunes
for free. iTunes has been distributing anime for over
a year now, though it’s been distributed dubbed rather
then subtitled, so those who prefer to watch anime
with the original Japanese voice acting will probably
want to stick with the DVDs.
The first episode itself is okay, but it does have
it’s weaknesses – but the show does pick up some
afterwards. I’ve been meaning to sit down and watch
the whole show for a review, now that it’s been
licensed. If you’re interested in reading a review of
the show, let me know.
