The Subtleties of Witchblade Takeru Manga

Bloggified by Jake on Monday, October 8, 2007

You may have your Tarot, sir, but when it comes to insane, overly-sexualized nonsense that takes itself seriously, give me Witchblade Takeru Manga!

In all seriousness, one of my favorite days of the month is when the new Witchblade Takeru Manga hits the stands. It makes 1965 Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane comics look like textbooks.

I'm still not sure how a book about a Japanese schoolgirl who is so timid she can barely speak to other people without passing out but becomes a demon fighting warrior clad in school outfit-rending, organic armor whose boobs grow about four cup sizes when she goes into battle is considered a Witchblade title. Sure, she has a magic gauntlet that rips her clothes off, but the stories diverge from there. It would be like DC publishing a book about a fourteen year old Japanese boy who puts on magic ring that he uses to make gigantic sex toys to pleasure his prep school teachers while fighting vampires and calling it "Green Lantern Natsuko Manga."

The best part of each issue of Witchblade Takeru Manga is finding the various crotch shots hidden throughout. It's kind of like "Where's Waldo?" if Waldo took up 25% of every page and held a big sign that said "Look at Waldo over here!"

Apparently the fans of Witchblade Takeru Manga are growing bored with shots of panties, so the creators are stepping up the crotch-related shots to include more fetishes and blatant sexuality. Case in point, when a girl tries hiding from some demons, but is found squatting behind a statue, she's soooo frightened she can't control her bladder.That is urine, right? I mean being discovered by demons who are going to rip you to shreds with their claws and eat your flesh shouldn't be sexually arous--oh, wait... Japan...

Later, Takeru's slutty friend stands by a fence. I have no idea why or what's happening her or where she's supposed to be. This is only one page and she doesn't show up for any other portion of the story.What I appreciate most about this scene is the guy in the background. Just in case, this:and this:were too subtle for you, he's there to point out the nuances you might have missed:
