This is my favorite anime so it may be biased.

Story: I love the story, early on the show is monster of the week but about half way through it because one straight story. It is mainly about how heritage is ignored in modern society and on this note; they never go overboard and mix in enough action that it is usually moving forwards.

Art: The show's art is a little dated and the colors seemed to be faded but monster design, animation, and the actual art, such as backgrounds and character designs were done quite well.

Sound: The score of this anime is done by Kenji Kawaii, read more

Blue Seed is a work created by Yuzo Takada of 3x3 Eyes fame and anime produced by Production I.G./Movic/Ashi Productions and tells the story of 15-year-old Momiji Fujimiya, a descendant of the ancient Kushinada family, and due to circumstances is taken into protection of the TAC, a government agency that combats the Aragami, an ancient race of youkai that have awoken and are out to take over Japan.

Blue Seed makes for a decent series, though it does have some bumps one has to get past before getting to much of the show's better stuff in later episodes. While the early episodes do their part in introducing the characters and the show's premise with Momiji being targeted by the Aragami, many of the episodes tend to follow a "monster of the day" style plot where a random Aragami is killing off parts of the human populace with Momiji, Kusanagi and the members of TAC tasked with killing off said threat. Some of the episodes do feature focus on one of the TAC members. read more

Blue Seed was one of the animes that helped me to leave the Tom & Jerry phase.I watched it many years ago on the old action channel{now starz action}when they had their ani-midnight anime block and this anime have stayed with me ever since.

Momiji fujimiya is an average teen that lives a fairly simple life with her mom and grandma in a small town.Ever since she was small she was constantly being told by her grandmother that it will be her destiny to save the people of japan,needless to say she never took her seriously and it was always a topic of laughter read more

Recommendations

InuYasha is very similar to Blue seed. The story uses a lot of the story plots from Blue Seed. Both are action comedies dealing with a school girl who falls in love with a rebelish demon guy who was once in love with someone they were connected too such as in Blue Seed a her unknown sister or as in InuYasha her previous life character. I believe if you enjoy one you should enjoy the other.

Both are very similar as the girl is protected and they fight monsters and destroy at the core. a lot more similarities. . .
World invade by evil Seeds, demon protecting a priestess, etc
reportRecommended by Shin - Add to favorites
Both series outrageously spend time extolling the romantic story of its two main characters.
Also, both are main female and both are women for a particular purpose and magical.
Blue Seed and Yu Yu hakusho both have lots of action packed fighting. Both main characters fight demonic creatures and have a romance with another character. The main character kusanagi acts a lot like Yuuske.
Though Blue Seed was way more populair than Green Legend Ran, both have plantlike enemies to fight. and the outcome is a bit unexpected
