Blood: The Last Vampire represents something of a departure for Production I.G., and for anime as a medium, not in terms of plot or characters, but in terms of production. Traditional animation techniques were replaced completely by digital animation, whilst the character designs lost the standard "clean and simple" line structure that has been a mainstay of the animation field for many years. In addtion to these, the movie was also a departure in terms of audio, in particular because of it's dub, and also because of it's target audience (more on these points in a bit though).

But is is any good?

This is a great anime for vampire lovers. The ending as is to be expected is pretty open-ended, although Blood+ can give you an additional fill if you want.

Over all this OVA excells. The story is so well-written, it might not have that much in the way of character development due to how short it is, but the way they present the vampires is very believable, the director himself stating how he wanted to present vampires as in-between evolution, something few anime do, or overdue as is the case of Trinity Blood, where there is evolution, but it is accompanied with near magical powers.

One of the most impressive animated films in 2000, garnering a Grand Prize at the Japan Media Arts Festival, Blood: The Last Vampire is a beautiful dark anime that is lauded for its extravagant production values. But, of course, when the animation studio has the caliber of Production I.G.

In the beginning, we are introduced to Saya on a deserted train. She sits very still, unmoving. Then all of a sudden, the train stops and the lights go out. What follows next is a one-minute action sequence that is guaranteed to take your breath away and give you an idea just how bloody marvelous this film read more

"Blood: the Last Vampire" is a good old fashioned horror/action flick... though it's only 50 min long, which is pretty darn short for a movie. Not that it's a bad movie at all. It fares pretty well despite the length, with no glaringly big flaws to pick apart.

Being an action heavy movie, the action is obvious a very important aspect, and it's something that "Blood: the Last Vampire" delivers on all accounts. The action is fluid and bloody, fast and furious from beginning to end, with very little respite in the middle. The thickly atmospheric direction is brilliant at times, especially in the opening scenes. read more

Recommendations

Same kind of Animation and story. Protagonist is someone hunting Vampires beside being one themselfs. They also hunger to take revenge on a certain vampire.
I guess the story outline would be not enough for claiming some special similarity, as it is already sort of a cliche (secret organization vs supernatural enemies fighting in a way that society doesn't realize...). Lead characters have not much in common (melancholic insecurity / aggressive overconfidence) but for me what makes those movies alike are pictures. Maybe Robin is not so 3D, and generally lower quality (TV-series against the movie), but there's some visual mood much in share. Low saturation and contrast for colours and dark settings and probably some more subtle factors can provide same feeling for both shows that personally I much appreciated in both these titles.
both chara are ´cut out´for the job, being demons or vampire´s , and have some damn filthy case up their nose, both decade´s apart from eachother and were just a one-time project
both are vampire story´s , although i pefer the last vampire WAY more than black blood brothers as an masterpiece, still both are simmilarity in the ´vampire ´genre and earned their name, Especially Blood, the last vampire.
Both include a very strong, very mysterious, female lead. Elements of storyline are discovered throughout the film, or in Elfen Lieds' case, show. The epic-ness and action packed scenes really pull you into them both. Both are very dark, and strong elements of gore in both add to the awesomeness.
Taciturn, serious and determined main characters, in a very dark plot, who are pretty strong in fights and they use just a simple sword. Both have heavy violence, blood and gore.
