Marvels try to get a chip in the anime genre is entertaining and amusing at best.
Preset old characters, giving nothing new to the serie, and only thing new in the serie is introduction of different world type vampires. Gargoyles, lamieres, gorgons... All the same, Vampires. As with this "upgrade" Eric is not fighting "humanid" creatures anylonger, ofc there are those pureblood classic vampires, but on the same time blade is fighting with demons and mutants.

Sure, as a blade believer, this series is definetly worth watching, but it brings nothing new to the genre, instead it is using every single mannover there is on the genre. read more

Vampires killing vampires is the key aspect both series share. In addition to that both Alucard and Blade fights for the sake of a human being, and dedicate their life for accomplishing that goal of theirs. Action pack, violent, gory, what else can i say...

Dante and Blade are hybrid of two different races, rather it would be demon and human or vampire and human. Their job? To hunt down and kill the demon/ vampire race that preys on human. There will be violence and lots of it, along with action.
