Strange "lifepods" have crashed in the western mountains, bringing with them supernatural beings previously found only in the realm of folk-lore and fantasy. Vampires walk the Earth, at war with Humanity and each other, driven by the most terrifying of genetic imperatives. Like wasps seeking a spider, they have come to this planet for only one purpose: to perpetuate their species.

Selected scene from Kimera, 1996: An Air Force official maintains a roadblock on a rural mountain path. He is armed, and there are numerous uniformed soldiers clearly visible in the background, as well as the flaming wreckage of an overturned army-green transport. As a bystander approaches to, y'know, see what all the fuss is about, the official levels his assault rifle, its muzzle six inches from the man's head, and says “you can't be here, it's dangerous, run!” The bystander does the absolute last thing that any thinking human being would do: Pushes the barrel of the gun aside with his hand and demands to read more

I picked this anime up a long time ago on a whim, boy I didn't know what I was getting into.


It's about a vampire wanting to use Kimera to continue the race. During this there seems to be a lot of Damsel in Distress on top of her being a vampire. The weirdest thing about her is that she has the upper body of a man and the lower body of a female. There appears to be a rape scene of some sort too, but it's just odd because Kimera looks like a woman/man or something.

She doesn't talk, which read more

This is one totally underrated piece.
I watch low rated films with my finger on the "skip" button, just to make sure that I'm not missing out. This time I didn't use it even once.

One of the rarest occasions when you watch fantasy/Sci-Fi/supernatural and in the end everything make sense. The plot is not too twisted, but well thought through. No Deus ex Machina, no "figure it out for your self" parts. The story flows smoothly and the ending is not trivial, but conclusive.

The style is a bit old, yet thoroughly done, nothing extraordinary, except for the fight scene, that was pretty intense and visual (blood read more

This anime would have been more tolerable if the music wasn't so terrible. Most notable, 38 minuets into the show one song during the only fight scene included dialog from what sounds like a phone call. A woman saying something like "Your payment for your insurance is approximately 4 weeks overdue, no insure company will ever take you with your insurance...". All of the music and stock sound effects were just bad. And yes this was the original Japanese version. Maybe they did a better job on the English dub, but I haven't seen it. If this anime was read more
