Teropterids are evil beasts which pose as humans and live only to drink human blood. Fortunately for the human world there are groups dedicated to destroying them. A brooding and mysterious girl named Saya is the best teropterid slayer there is, and now, in 1960s Japan, she is sent to a U. S. army base which may be infested...

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?

Since this movie was short, I will make my review just as brief:

It felt like I walked into the theater 15 minutes late, then part way in I forgot I had to be somewhere and had to leave 15 minutes early.

The animation and art design is quite nice, but the lack of character development and very minuscule plot left me feeling so bewildered and confused - I still don't understand why this was apparently so popular at the time it came out.

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

Anime: Witch Hunter Robin
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  read more

Anime: Elfen Lied
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.

Anime: Afro Samurai
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. 
reportRecommended by Disillusion
Anime: Vampire Hunter D
Both are about vampires and how sometimes these night stalkers are treated unfairly when they try to blend into mortal society
Vampire Hunter D is more sentimental
the other one is trying to hide her true nature by beeing rough
both are must see for fans of vampires
