Review: Blood +

blood_overview.jpg

Plot Summary: Throughout the passage of time and the shifts in backgrounds, a particular war continues to leave its mark on history, extending its influence into the modern world. There are two major groups involved in the ensuring war. The first group consists of monsters known as Chiropterans who can change their appearances into that of human beings. They are actually immortals who feed on the blood of the living. The second group is an organisation known as the “Red Shield”, formed to track down these monsters and exterminate them. Otonashi Saya is a high-school girl who lives a peaceful life with her family. The only problem is, she has no recollections of her life beyond that of the past year. However, her happy life will be destroyed by an event that will lead her to her destined fate.

This was a bit of a long anime about Saya who is one is the queen of the Chiropterans, and her sister Diva who is also another queen. Diva is trying to fill the world with her Chiropteran and she only has sense of destruction, chaos, and dispair. Saya loves her family and wants to protect her friends. The story does have tragedy and action with a lot of drama, but I felt it was a little too long it could have been warpped up a little faster. There is a lot a blood shed but it is a really good anime and I really enjoyed it. You get pulled into Saya’s life and her friends and how Kai develops throughout the anime, you just keep getting pulled in more and more into it and want to see where the conclusion is, and I have to say I was satisfied, but I wish the pace was a little faster.
