If this is very unclear and is like impossible to identify without further description, Please let me know, All I have is one episode I saw on TV of it(on Animax).

My hope is that someone may recognize the super-power of a character in it.

All of the anime characters had super-powers and the one I was talking about had threads i.e he can release thin threads from his body, and the threads were sharp and they would cut and hurt the enemies.

There was some sort of war going on in that anime.

And at this particular scene on that episode, someone was badly injured and another had to feed the medicine using mouth

I am unable to remember the gender of the characters. But I believe the one who had thread powers was a guy with long light hair.

Hope these descriptions are enough.

I feel like that "superpower" description is fairly generic. Overall the whole things seems pretty vague. More details might be needed. – MattD Oct 15 '13 at 19:57
When did you watch this? – coleopterist Oct 16 '13 at 5:47
Oh I didn't knew this superpower is very generic in anime, it looks the same as in the image in Mary's answer below, I can't remember when I watched it, 6 years years back for sure! I will start looking into animes with the characters with characters having razor floss super power. – rps Oct 16 '13 at 11:33
Does Darker than Black has such a character? – rps Oct 16 '13 at 12:20

I think the weaponry/superpower you refer to may be searched for under these terms:

  • monofilament wire
  • monomolecular wire
  • razor floss

This page (tvtropes "razor floss") references a lot of anime and manga where this features - finding a match for what you are looking for from the list will require more information from you.

Here is an example from Hellsing (which aired on Animax): enter image description here

Thanks, the superpower looked just like that! I can't remember anything else about that anime. The one with that power had long white hair! I will start searching the list that you referred to for chars with with that power+long light colored hair. – rps Oct 16 '13 at 11:36
