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.

Story:
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

Soooooo, how do you like your revival of a popular franchise? Ruined or half assed, story wise?

STORY: Years ago there was an unfortunate case of assault, the victim? Blood the last vampire, a popular movie that spawned an even more popular over-hyped anime series: Blood+, the perpetrator had no motives, it was a cruel and brutal assault in form of a live action, and ever since, Blood has been hospitalized in a vegetative state and was never heard from again... Until...
In the year 2011 however, a famous group of manga creators, CLAMP, visited Blood in the hospital in order to try to revive it from read more

[UPDATE]

Half way done and this is by far the most pissed off I ever got while watching an anime its like watching an action version of a NTR. So many unanswered questions as the plot thickens (if there is one). I feel sorry for the fans of the original. I really can't stand the random deaths that occur in this anime, FANS of BLOOD-C you know what I'm saying because you cant say that you haven't noticed it. Its like you're playing this horrible video games and your at a boss fight and you read more

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: 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. 
reportRecommended by Disillusion
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. 
reportRecommended by SuchADojikko
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: Shingeki no Kyojin
Gory anime about otherworldly creatures that eat people.

Anime: Vampire Knight
If you are looking for a more subtle vampire story, then these two may do it.

Note: Don't go into Blood-C expecting it to be like Blood +
