Witchblade opens to a scene of red skies and buildings collapsing onto a shaking earth. As chaos engulfs civilization, tendrils begin wrapping around a woman clutched in the fetal position. This vision resolves into a more natural order as a young girl shakes her mother awake. Soon, the anime establishes that this woman, Masane Amaha, was found at the epicenter of a cataclysmic earthquake, holding onto her then infant daughter, Rihoko.
