Following Armageddon, an apocalyptic war, mankind faces yet another menace: vampires. The continuous confrontations between the races have split the world into separate factions. The race of vampires, Methuselah, are affiliated with the New Human Empire; whereas the humans, deemed Terrans by the vampires, make up the Vatican Papal State. Furthermore, extremist groups like the Rosenkreuz Order strive to rekindle a war, despite the factions' attempts to avoid direct conflict.

To combat terrorist organizations, the Vatican has implemented the AX unit. Led by Cardinal Caterina Sforza, the AX agents investigate vampire-related disturbances with hopes that the Terrans and the Methuselah will one day achieve peaceful coexistence. Amongst the AX unit is priest Abel Nightroad—a seemingly disoriented but gentle-hearted fellow who is a fierce vampire slayer on the battlefield. Joining the unit as his partner is agent Sister Esther Blanchett, a brave and gentle young nun troubled with a tragic past.

As the two grow closer, they begin to uncover signs of malicious schemes and dark forces working in the shadows. But the path they walk is riddled with misfortune that might just force them to confront the memories that plague their hearts.

Trinity Blood premiered in Japan on the satellite network WOWOW on April 28, 2005 and ran until October 6, 2005. The satellite channel Animax also aired the series across its networks. The Funimation English dubbing of the series premiered on Canadian television on the Razer network on July 6, 2006; and in the United States as part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block on September 9, 2006.

The series enjoyed strong television ratings when it originally aired in Japan. Its North American debut was also considered successful; it is credited for being one of four Funimation properties that helped the company achieve a 47.8% sales gain in 2006.

Funimation gave Trinity Blood a 90-minute US theatrical release to promote the series. The film, titled Trinity Blood: Genesis, is a compilation of the first four episodes of the series and released on May 5, 2006 in conjunction with Anime Central in Chicago, IL.

"Broken Wings" by Tomoko Tane

"Trinity Blood" is a gothic horror anime with a twist. Not only does it contain one of the most drastically different take on vampires this side of "Blood+", but it forgoes the usual setting of the genre in favour of a post-apocalyptic distant future. The results are... mixed, to put it mildly. While the series does have some great visuals and fantastic sound design, it unfortunately falls a little short in the storytelling and world-building department, and ultimately never even comes close to making the most out of its huge potential.

Just finished the anime. It was entertaining enough… Not bad and not AMAZING…. I must say I’m a huge fan of the “Evil Twin” trope, where each twin is the protagonist and the other is the antagonist, such as Blood+ and Trigun. When I heard this one had it, I came running to watch it. But sadly we didn’t know enough about the conflict. Why are Abel and Cain fighting exactly? Did they use to get along better? We don’t know. Other than that, I love how the anime handles peace and character development. The red haired girl bothered me sometimes but she’s pretty tolerable ...

The first time I watched this ~10 years ago I rated it a 10. I don't know what the hell I was thinking. Upon a rewatch I score it a 4, though it could really possibly be a 3.

The thing is, I really like vampires. And a Cruznik is a pretty cool concept as well. The problem with the show is that the story is inconsistent with at least 90% of the episodes really being largely filler and pointless. Worse, it has no real ending, which isn't really explained. There are also other elements not really explained like the state of the world or the ...
