About Blassreiter DVD Complete Series SAVE Edition

A blood-borne plague races across Germany, giving life to mechanized monsters that are hell-bent on leaving a bloody trail of victims in their wake.

Standing in their way is civilization's last hope for a savior. Joseph Jobson - the mysterious lone rider - fuses with the unreal technology of his battle-tested motorcycle to defend man against machine. But the same tainted blood that supplies his strength threatens to devour his soul, leaving him nothing more than a murderous demon.

I am the Pale Rider!

by

Blassreiter is one of those new (anything after 2000) anime that comes in every once in awhile. It is a fantastic anime! Directed by Ichiro (Itano Circus!) Itano of Angel Cop fame. Our show takes place in Germany where an outbreak of demoniacs occurs and thus forces the government to deploy a special fighting task force called the XAT to combat the evil doers. The series revolves around a silent strong type named Joseph who travels the country in search of something. Blassreiter does a great job of story telling without much filler that takes you away from the main story. Funimation did an awesome job on the English dub as well. You will recognize some of your favorite Funimation voice actors putting their voices to work. It also has one of the best ending themes to anime in quite awhile by Aki Misato so check it out. The only thing that I can complain about is the CG in the anime, I know that the Japanese love to show off their new hidden CG techniques but It sure doesn't mesh well with the pencil/other computer art in the series.
