Check out the setting and background of the next couple of frames. I liked how they researched and illustrated a very realistic looking Manila.
Blade vs mandurugo
The mandurugo is a variety of the aswang that takes the form of an attractive girl by day, and develops wings and a long, hollow, thread-like tongue by night. The tongue is used to suck up blood from a sleeping victim. --Wikipedia
Take a look at the mandurugo in human form. Does she look familiar to you? Is that... nahhh... no way... maybe she just goes to the hairstylist?
Screenshots from the episode where Blade fights a manananggal in Siquijor:
Nice post! Nice review!
cool for aswangs to be featured in Blade! nice depiction of Manila also. :)
Woah! Finally some modern international entertainment production which recognizes and credits us for our vast collection of Filipino folklore monsters. Well, I think the female mandurugo is inspired by Alexandra.
