You will not like this series. Yes, you, the reader of this review. Yes, I can tell.

You will watch the first couple episodes. You will be befuddled by the juxtaposition of a slice of life high school setting and utterly brutal, gory, monster battles. You will detect no overarching plot and abandon it.

You will have been a fan of Blood+, and will not like this anyway.

You will watch the whole series, be extremely upset with the ending and story execution, wonder what was the point of it all, and not like it.

You will be turned off by the gore and not like it.

Blood-c is one giant troll of an anime. Unfortunately, it proved so good at the gimmick it used that it chased away most of the audience before the good times started rolling. I was going to give it a stinky 3 by episode five but then I continued watching and by the end it had redeemed itself. Still, that is no excuse for those awful, eye-gouging first episodes.

Since you are most probably a returning customer to the Blood franchise, you are already familiar with the story. Sword-wielding mystery girl in a high school uniform fights man-eating monsters. Mystery is solved in a gory, splattery, read more

This is a spoiler free review.
Also this is my first review, so be nice. And English is not my native language, so sorry if there are some mistakes.

Ok, So this is the third installment in the Blood franchise by Production I.G. Which is a great studio that had done some amazing things, but at the same time it's no stranger to failing miserably, as demonstrated by this particular anime.


Well, if you're familiar with the previous 'Blood' installments, you'd know that the premise is about a schoolgirl with a sword who fights vampire-like creatures known as 'Teropterids' in the original movie, and 'Chiropterans' in Blood+. read more

Being a fan of Blood+, I was completely disappointed by this spin-off series.

The main character, Saya, is obscenely annoying, and pathetic. She is from a family of fighters, and destined for a dark and brutal fate, yet she STILL acts like an annoying, selfish, and naive brat.

There really is no plot development until the last few episodes (how many people had to die before that happened I wonder)

There is no character development. (Sorry, the annoying, pathetic naive main character NEVER gets cooler. At all. Sorry.)

The only thing satisfying thing in this series, is the amount of gore made from the read more

Anime: Another
Most of the show is inscrutable plot exposition, but when it comes time for bitches to die, you get your money's worth, no doubt.
It takes quite a bit longer for the mayhem to kick in in Blood-C, but once it does, it's pretty brutal.

Anime: Elfen Lied
Both have interesting plot, likeable characters and impeccable drama.

Ok, I lied but they both have blood, gracious amounts of fan service and dense lead characters. The best thing about both series is the opening song and I guess Blood-C is a pretty looking show.

Anime: Shiki
Both are set in a remote village where monsters (or vampires) roam around by night. Both early episodes started out very slow until in the middle, things finally took off.

Anime: Claymore
The main character is a swordswoman, who has the task of defend humans by killing monsters. The main character has important links with those monsters. The shows provide an high level of violence and gore, with a plot full of twists.

Anime: Shingeki no Kyojin
Gory anime about otherworldly creatures that eat people.

Anime: Akame ga Kill!
Much like Blood-C, Akame ga Kill! takes place in a town where nothing is as it appears. Both anime also features a lot of graphic violence.
