The official website for Madhouse's anime adaptation of Marvel's American comic character Blade is streaming a new trailer movie for the show, which will premiere in Japan on July 1. The Bleeding Cool website also posted character designs from the project, which is the fourth and final one from Madhouse based on Marvel superheroes.
The story revolves around Blade (Akio Ohtsuka), a "Daywalker" vampire hunter who was born with vampire and human blood after a vampire attacked his mother. While visiting Japan on a mission, Blade tracks down Deacon Frost (Tsutomu Isobe), the vampire who killed his mother. Blade confronts "Existence," a mysterious organization composed of vampires modified by Frost. Maaya Sakamoto and Osamu Saka also star as Makoto and Noah Van Helsing, respectively.
Mitsuyuki Masuhara (Chi's Sweet Home, Kobato.) is directing off scripts written and supervised by Kenta Fukasaku (Battle Royale II: Requiem).
