Peaceful schoolgirl by day, fearsome monster slayer by night, Saya Kisaragi is leading a split life. Equipped with a ceremonial sword given to her by her father for sacred tasks, she vanquishes every monster who dares threaten her quiet little village. But all too soon, Saya's reality and everything she believes to be true is tested, when she overhears the monsters speak of a broken covenant—something she knows nothing about. And then, unexpectedly, a strange dog appears; it asks her to whom she promised to protect the village, curious as to what would happen if she were to break that promise. Tormented by unexplainable visions and her world unraveling around her, we travel with Saya through her struggle to find a way to the truth in a village where nothing is as it seems.

You will not like this series. Yes, you, the reader of this review. Yes, I can tell.

You will watch the first couple episodes. You will be befuddled by the juxtaposition of a slice of life high school setting and utterly brutal, gory, monster battles. You will detect no overarching plot and abandon it.

You will have been a fan of Blood+, and will not like this anyway.

You will watch the whole series, be extremely upset with the ending and story execution, wonder what was the point of it all, and not like it.

You will be turned off by the gore and not like it.

Blood-c is one giant troll of an anime. Unfortunately, it proved so good at the gimmick it used that it chased away most of the audience before the good times started rolling. I was going to give it a stinky 3 by episode five but then I continued watching and by the end it had redeemed itself. Still, that is no excuse for those awful, eye-gouging first episodes.

Since you are most probably a returning customer to the Blood franchise, you are already familiar with the story. Sword-wielding mystery girl in a high school uniform fights man-eating monsters. Mystery is solved in a gory, splattery, read more

Soooooo, how do you like your revival of a popular franchise? Ruined or half assed, story wise?

STORY: Years ago there was an unfortunate case of assault, the victim? Blood the last vampire, a popular movie that spawned an even more popular over-hyped anime series: Blood+, the perpetrator had no motives, it was a cruel and brutal assault in form of a live action, and ever since, Blood has been hospitalized in a vegetative state and was never heard from again... Until...
In the year 2011 however, a famous group of manga creators, CLAMP, visited Blood in the hospital in order to try to revive it from read more

This is a spoiler free review.
Also this is my first review, so be nice. And English is not my native language, so sorry if there are some mistakes.

Ok, So this is the third installment in the Blood franchise by Production I.G. Which is a great studio that had done some amazing things, but at the same time it's no stranger to failing miserably, as demonstrated by this particular anime.


Well, if you're familiar with the previous 'Blood' installments, you'd know that the premise is about a schoolgirl with a sword who fights vampire-like creatures known as 'Teropterids' in the original movie, and 'Chiropterans' in Blood+. read more
