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

Why not use Blood+ instead?

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.

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)

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.

GUY #1 : Those are some cool posters. Where did you buy those and how much was it?

GUY #2 : Got 'em at Red Cross. Really cheap. just exchanged them for a few liters of my blood, pretty neat right.

the end justifies the means
and in this case every mean is most welcome

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.

They should use Caster not Saber.
