Cleveronix A different way of telling a story
Dynamixor The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
Tymon Sutton The acting is good, and the firecracker script has some excellent ideas.
Kamila Bell This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
awpkiller2 I only write a review here when I see something I really like or really really hate. I had to write this and get it out of my mind. So here I am.This is the best anime series I have seen so far. I saw it all in 2 days 50 episodes and must say I couldn't stop. The feeling I got from this anime series is undesirable. It's almost like you're happy that you saw it and sad that is over. I'm a great fan of other series like Bleach, Banner of the stars, Claymore and some more. But the story/plot of Blood+ is by far the best, not to mention the music, it's absolutely amazing. One can tell that there is hard work and a lot of feelings behind it all. I have never been interested in downloading anime soundtracks until now. What I liked most about Blood is that there are no filler episodes what so ever. Great story, and characters are as alive as you can get in a drawing. It made me see the characters as if they were real, and that's some accomplishment. The animation is good, but not the best I have seen so far. But it's decent and has some mixed CG sequences along the episodes. I'm looking forward for seeing more of Junichi Fujisaku work and hope that he makes more anime like this. So I like to thank all of the artists behind this wonderful work. Thank you for your hard work.
bluwlf_8503 I'm finding that there seem to be quite a few more negative reviews than positive. I don't really see what's so "nearly awful" about this series. Granted, I haven't quite reached the end of the series yet, but I quite like it. It's got great style. The art is beautiful. I found the story rather compelling. On top of it all, the action is nearly addictive without being too over the top. I think it's a wonderful series. I do, however kind of wish that there was a bit more visual continuity between Blood: TLV and the series. Saya didn't look at all like she did in the movie. I also felt that the series could have used a few of the darker touches found in the movie. But all in all I feel that both are stylistically winning. I'm eager to finish the series.
LordBish34 Its interesting how some people can go from its awful to this is a must see anime. I will tell you how it is from a guy who liked it, but does not place it above its place in anime.First off I do recommend this show, however with a warning. If you liked the original anime, you are going to be getting a slightly less adult version in this one, its very close to a teen drama in anime form. It also starts off very slow, to the point some of the episodes leave you feeling you didn't really have to see them to understand or enjoy the show. This is especially true of the first 24 eps.But if you can get through them, you will be rewarded in the end, as far as I know this series had about 50 eps. At about eps 33 this show takes off in a slightly more mature direction, the characters seem to almost improve overnight from eps 32 to 33. It gives the feeling like they decided to change direction for the series, poss do to some criticism of the previous eps.The show ends very well, and by this time, due in large part to the second half of the series, you are very invested in key characters like Saya and Haji and to a lesser extent Diva and Kai so the ending has a high emotional impact.Now is this an anime to go down in history? a must have? no its not. While its story is solid, it is definitely dragged out far longer than needed, as I said earlier you can skip episodes with little loss of story or character development, While there are good moments, you definitely get the feeling they padded the story. In all honesty the story could have been told well in 1/3 the episodes.Saya's character I think for some will be a let down, and can be downright annoying to watch early on in the series. Her growth is also exceedingly slow, in the end the characterization still doesn't end up being quite right, not to say it isn't good, just not right. This may be in part to the teen drama feel of the show, even though they changed that half way through she herself doesn't quite get over the hump entirely.These two elements by themselves keep this series out of the great anime category.I do believe the series is worth a look, I enjoyed the second half immensely, so don't get discouraged in the beginning because it does get better and as I said earlier it does pay off when you get to the end.
chop_suey_soad If anyone can remember the earlier release of Blood: The Last Vampire, this series is the sequel to the events at the beginning of the Vietnam war. Now in the modern age, Saya has lost all memory of her past and is being taken care of by a foster family. Even with the first episode you're bound to be hooked to the amazing visuals! Production I.G. have made the bold decision to ditch the Gothic horror feel and replace it with a mellow, happy, clam mood. This works well; this is common within family programs.The only worrying thing now is the question 'Will this ever make it into a western audience?' - only time will tell!
