Reviews

GoneWithTheTwins High production values and ample servings of blood-splattering violence won't completely counteract the cliché story progression for the seasoned anime-watcher, though fans of darker action horror series, vampires, or shape-shifting monsters will easily find something to appreciate. Blood+ carries on the style of the original movie and can readily be enjoyed by those seeking the visceral aspect of anime, but those familiar with the genre will undoubtedly be able to discern the plentiful recycling of several of its brethren.Blood+ follows the horrific exploits of unwitting vampire exterminator and amnesiac Saya as she struggles to recover her past and escape her future. A mysterious organization has been experimenting with Chiropterans (vicious, mutating, blood-sucking monstrosities) and several have been unleashed upon the city. Saya is the only one capable of bringing death to the vile creatures and must assume her purpose as killer and savior. With the aid of her family (one older brother and one younger), her protector (a quiet, violin-toting assassin adept in carnage), and The Red Shield (the forces determined to eradicate Chiropterans once and for all), Saya must continually confront the demonic creations while drawing ever closer to the secrets of her past and the identities of those determined to destroy her.While the seamless blend of computer and hand drawn animation is truly breathtaking at times, the avid anime viewer knows characters and story come first. Especially with a longer series such as this, every individual introduced must retain their intrigue and demand the viewer's attention. The characters in Blood+ accomplish this feat more often than not, though sadly the most disappointing progression lies within main protagonist Saya. She never seems capable of mustering the courage required to slay the beastly Chiropterans (except when her blood rage takes over - and then she's not consciously kicking ass), and her unwillingness to fight becomes downright excruciating at times. Her potential is realized too slowly and we're left trying to root for others with more impressive skills. Luckily, the supporting characters range from "badass" to "freakin' awesome" which helps to balance out any lull in Saya's development. Most notable are David and Haji, two stern, commanding warriors each with completely different origins but a common goal.As with many anime series, the packaging is aesthetically pleasing, and the Blood+ Part One Box Set is no exception. 25 episodes on 6 discs are housed in a sturdy black box and packaged with an exclusive T-shirt and Manga Sampler Comic Book. With anime sets typically being slim on bonus features, Blood+ doesn't break the mold, but does provide a comprehensive set of five extensive interviews with the various creators of the show. Since this is only Series One, let's hope subsequent sets match in both appearance and substance.Despite many elements feeling borrowed from other anime productions, Blood+ retains enough unique scenarios and a plethora of characters and twisting subplots to keep the series from slowing down. Utilizing the intricacies of Saya's amnesia to allow the audience to discover reasons and motives at about the same pace as the protagonists results in a constant state of anxious attentiveness or annoying chagrin. The majority of the time the former outweighs the latter, and combined with brilliant cliffhanger episode endings, each succeeding disc becomes infinitely more appealing than the last. Blood+ parallels the violence of Elfen Lied, the mystery of Noir, and the action of Gungrave, and also remarkably includes elements of horror, adventure, comedy, and romance. And this is just Part One.Joel Massie
siderite This is a series based on an anime movie called "Blood: the Last Vampire". The animation is good, without being great, the music is above average up until the middle of the series when some meaningless teen pop music is added as the final track. The story is interesting, but it makes no sense in the long run, but what's really annoying is the personalities of the characters.Basically you have a good vampire queen with a vampire servant and a whole bunch of human friends fighting the evil vampire queen with a whole bunch of vampire servants and a whole bunch of human employees. The good always seem to win because the bad are either bored or completely distracted by other things, while the few situations that could be exploited in the advantage of the main character end in emotional outbursts and impotent tears.What makes it even more ridiculous is that these vampires can only be killed by the blood of the other kind of vampire. Still there are always humans ready to shoot their little guns and (sometimes) shotguns or SMGs. Can anyone guess what happens to them?I watched all the 50 episodes in order to get to the bottom of the story. It was a complete mess, but now it's over, I can move on. Bottom line: there are a lot of worse animes out there, but there are a lot of them that are better, as well.
dj-258 Motivated by the great 'Blood: The Last Vampire', I started with pleasant anticipation 'Blood+', only to be disappointed from the beginning.I persevere hoping that the story will go its own way and being more interesting in later episodes.But it was gloomy. 'Blood: The Last Vampire' has no outreaching story, but has a formidable style, some convincing characters and a peculiar art.'Blood+' seems to be made pregnant by stereotypes, and nothing more than this.Boring!I needed a lot of willpower to survive viewing this 'lousy job', just to write this comment.
rakkoondosari So far, I'm up to the 45th episode. The story does get extremely sad frequently, like when George (saya's foster father) dies, when Mui (the poor orphan Vietnamese girl in Vietnam) turns in to a Chiroptera and Riku (Kai's younger bro) never sees her again, when Riku himself dies in the hands of the evil and twisted Diva (she's pretty though) and also when the Schiff group dies as well (they are the ones who thought that they needed Saya's blood to avoid the Thorn virus but it turned out that it killed Irene (the beautiful blond Schiff who really loved Kai) a sad and tragic death, made me cry lol. but i hope that they continue up to more than 50eps. I hope that they all go back to Okinawa and all of those who died and were "good guys" come back and live with Kai and Saya in Okinawa. I also want Red Shield to come back!
