A best-selling comic in its own right, “Witchblade” tells the tale of Sara Pezzini, a woman who becomes the bearer of an ultra-powerful (and even moreso destructive) ancient weapon known as the Witchblade. However, in the anime version of the story, we follow a new heroine named Masane Amaha, a lone wanderer who stumbles upon the powerful Witchblade in Tokyo in the distant future. Soon, Masane finds herself in the middle of a war between Tokyo factions, and must decide how to use the power of the Witchblade.
