Horrifying beasts with a hunger for human flesh prey on the citizens of a quiet town. In moonlit twilight, Saya slays the monsters and returns home drenched in blood. As the attacks increase in frequency and intensity, her enemies relay cryptic messages about a broken contract. Limbs are torn from flesh and skulls are crushed and devoured while the huntress struggles with paralyzing visions and gaping holes in her memory. When the humans Saya promised to protect reveal the sickening truth about her role in the violence, she learns her mission isn’t as clear cut as she thought—and her most sadistic foe of all is so close she can taste it.
The Limited Edition sku comes in a collectible art box.

The animated film set in 1966 was focused on a vampire named Saya who hunts down bat-like creatures known as chiropterans. The animated film would eventually lead to a manga series "Blood: The Last Vampire 2000″ and three Japanese light novels plus a video game.
In 2005, a 50-episode anime series titled "Blood+", an alternate timeline would be featured and would focus on an amnesiac named Saya Otanashi who lives the life of an ordinary school girl. Until she is attacked by a Chiropteran and finds out that she somehow can fight against them and is the only one that can defeat them. This leads to a storyline with Saya, her family and friends trying to rid the world of the Chiropteran and her starting to remember her history.
In 2011, a new anime and manga series was created by this time by the famous manga creators, CLAMP. The anime series was 12-episodes long while an animated film titled "Blood-C: The Last Dark" was released in the summer of 2012.
In "Blood-C", the series focuses on Saya Kisaragi, a normal, clumsy schoolgirl who lives with her father, Tadayoshi, a priest in the local shrine. She trains as a miko (a priestess) and has a secret life of learning a sacred sword and the "art of the sword" to slay Furukimono (monsters).
It is learned that Saya is following the path that her mother had done before she died. But as time goes on, she is unsure about herself, her duties of fighting the monsters and her true self.
Meanwhile, more monster incidents are happening in town and people including friends are disappearing or are attacked and killed.Read more ›
In terms of storyline, it was the worst. Don't expect anything good about the story - whether looking at this from a Blood point of view, or an outside point of view, the story was garbage. I have seen the Blood series, and I am not letting that affect my rating. I am viewing this as a separate entity, or an original standalone piece, just because it is by CLAMP. CLAMP is notorious for merging their own worlds together, and while that does not happen in Blood C (outside of Watanuki), the world they created for Blood C was something that seems like it was done overnight - with no coherent thought or reason behind it.
The blu-ray packaging isn't anything fancy, just your typical blu-ray case with discs in it. The animation was so-so. The characters were so-so in terms of uniqueness and development. The pacing was completely off. If you are watching this as an episode-to-episode story then prepare for dead ends that lead nowhere and a plot that takes forever to unfurl. The art was great, at least.
Lastly, it highly aggravated me that the subtitles were burned into the product. It takes away from the general appeal, in my opinion. Aside from that though, I have not seen the movie, so I can't say much about that, but I hope it concludes the Blood C story because it just kind of ended in this series, nothing really happened that is worth mentioning. However, it will be a while before I decide to purchase it. I learned my lesson here by purchasing this series before watching it. If I had watched it first, it would not have been worth the $35 to me.
It saddens me to give this rating, but I feel Blood C deserves it. Watch the series before you buy it.
