Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
An ancient weapon thriving on destruction has risen once again to wreak havoc upon mankind: the witchblade. Part armor, part blade, and part sentient. The witchblade’s thirst for battle has often been at odds with its wielder and few are strong enough to fully control it. Masane Amaha, the current bearer of the gauntlet, is sought after by two opposing corporations willing to risk all humanity for control of the ultimate weapon. Masane is a woman on the fringe of society, whose destiny was written ages ago — a fresh host for the coveted artifact. The raw power of conquering armies courses through her veins, the taste of death sweet on her lips. Struggling to build a life for her daughter, with no memory of the past and no clue as to her future, Masane Amaha will be forever scarred by her salvation … and many will step forward to see it. The destiny of the witchblade continues.

Very good show and very entertaining. This is an excellent TV show if you are looking for something to entertain you on your iPhone (or iDevice). I love good anime and this is yet another good anime, honestly I don't like too many of them but this one is just plain good.
the anime starts out kind of girly with slash pervert big boobs kind of thing going on but is slows down on it or you get used to it. drawings are pretty good compared to most animes these days and the story and action is very good. I havent seen a good anime series in awhile. I would recommend this to almost anyone.
why is this hidden?
The first episode is free, but doesn't show up in "Free on iTunes"? Hmmmm...
