The only thing relevant about donating blood and Blood-C is the fact there's blood. Other than that...not much. But cool. Should be a nice perk and motive for some folks.

Type C only.
The legal age of consent in Japan is 13, so shota is totally legal in Japan. In some western countries shota might be considered child porn.

It may seem like a crazy approach but that's actually a pretty neat idea. And it even benefits those in need. Way to go, Japan.

This.

But I'm all for Fate/Zero. And I love that Japan uses animes to promote stuff. You won't find that anywhere else in the world. :)

Eh, surprisingly the poster isn't so bad, despite what I've seen of the anime being so terrible. But if the show is good for something..guess it wasn't a complete waste of time.

Should have been:
"L.E. FIGURINES FOR YOU BLOOD"

then watch it flooooow.
Why are you watching the S2 of the anime that you loathe?
¬‿¬ And those guys who think they are elite because they watched (earlier or) more anime than others.

Damn, I would rather have that poster over the $11 in free ice-cream i got for donating blood....
"Forged in darkness with wheat harvested from Hell's half acre. Baked by Beelzabub; slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chickens, force-fed to dogs by the hands of a one-eyed madman. Cheese boiled from the rancid utters of fanged cows. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood."

Well, the main point of the using anime characters is to attract strangers into reading the poster at the very least. So why Blood C?
Like WHY?

Lelouch would be bring more donors than that creep. Fate/Zero was definitely a good choice.
And 2ndly, this news made me laugh for an entire minute.
And and, free posters would be nice. Thanks.

They could even go with Hellsing ;)

and since donated blood was Alucard's peace-time snack some people could just give it with thought that they do it, in order to protect Great Britain or fight with evil (I wouldn't be surprised if there would be people with such a motivation)

Because the Blood C movie is coming out soon. Its promoting the movie as well, not just to donate blood. Same with Fate/Zero since its airing currently.

Should've been Akagi. Let a game of mahjong decide the amount of blood you donate.
