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.

People say, its not a good anime. But dont listen, just watch. There are few animes, that will

make you want to know whats going to happen in the next episode... and you will get that

from this one. And the awesome mystery music .... At some episode ... you will feel, that you

lost something, but all will get to you in time. Your brain will work so hard during this anime.

And the blood and gore is strong in this one :)

The 12 episode format is just the right lenght, that this anime needs, even if 70% of all info, is passed and read more

The plot is horribly executed and forced, the characters are just awful. I am a horrible fiction writer and i am certain that my six year old sister or myself can write a better story.

Now i'm going to tell you the main thing that really upset me with this show. What happened was that throughout the show you hear the main character making promises about protecting everyone and then doing a piss poor job of it. or even better, she just won't do it. Will wait until every last person she's trying to protect is dead before being able to read more

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

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.

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: 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.  
reportRecommended by BreezeElric
Anime: Gantz
Both essentially feature the same episodic development for the majority of the anime: school life moments -> monsters appear -> extras get dismembered in a veritable fountain of blood, splatter and gore for half the episode -> main characters finally decide to fight monster and win within a few minutes -> wash rinse repeat. Blood-C has a somewhat more sensible ending, not necessarily better though.
