Blade battles aswang in Siquijor

There's an episode of BLADE (Episode 5 : Island of Lights), the anime series by Madhouse, where Blade travels to Siquijor, Philippins and fights manananggal. He also meets a tribe of aswang hunters named Lupit, Cimarron, and Hagibis. (Thanks to Ace Enriquez who sent these screencaps and promised to lend me a copy of this episode.)

UPDATE: Just confirmed it-- yes, the outline for this series was written by Warren Ellis . This isn't the first time Warren Ellis has written a story set in the Philippines. His graphic novel STRANGE KILLINGS was set in the Hundred Islands.

(La! La! La! La! La! La! Laaahhh! Nanggigigil kami...!!!)
