Mimiko is an interesting character, as complex in her own way as Jiro, obviously falling in love with him while at the same time wary of anything vampire.Jiro's reaction ranges from obviously returning the emotion to a little heavy-handed teasing. When she offers to give him blood to strengthen him for an upcoming battle, and experiences an orgasmic surge as a result, his reaction is "Mimiko...you're drooling. His gratitude for her being a virgin, because "Virgin blood is a supreme delicacy for vampires," gets him knocked while he lays there and laughs at her embarrassment.
Little brother Kotaro is more than he seems, it's learned at the end, but for all intents and purposes, during most of the story he's simply a little boy following his big brother's lead while still aware of the dangers being a Black Blood brings. IT's interesting Kotaro can go out in sunlight and eat food while JIro also appeared during the day though he always well-covered by hat, coat,and carried a paper parasol to protect him from the sun.
There is a fairly complex back-story so occasionally one has to listen closely, so no getting up and running to the fridge for a snack.
All in all, it's an enjoyable story and while I wasn't entirely satisfied with the ending, if there'd been a sequel, I'd surely buy it, too.
The box set has three DVDs with 4 episodes on each DVD and is the complete BLACK BLOOD BROTHERS series.
The anime series is about a cool vampire named Jiro and his little brother Kotaro who make their way to a place called the "Special Zone," where humans and vampires live together in peace. They meet up with a vampire and human negotiator named Mimiko, who's a human, and she helps them along the way. Anyway, there's a sect of vampires called the Kowloon (koo-lawn) Children who are rabid, evil vampires and they want to destroy the "Special Zone" by infecting everyone with their tainted blood. So Jiro has to join forces with the good vampires and the humans to help defeat the Kowloon Children.
I found the series really riveting with an interesting storyline, endearing characters, great action scenes, and the animation is well drawn. The English voice overs are really good too as each actor matches the character he/she is portraying, but there's an option to play the original Japanese language track with English sub-titles.
At first, I found the character of Kotaro a little annoying but he grew on me after a couple of episodes.
If you like anime and are looking for a complete series that's cool, has great action, and endearing characters, I would definitely recommend the BLACK BLOOD BROTHERS BOX SET. Hopefully, there will be another season/series that continues on with the storyline and we get more of Jiro, Kotaro and Mimiko.
The complete series came together as expected. The disks were in excellent shape and played without an issue in a PS3.
I have several anime series that were purchased off amazon. Very convenient to browse options as well as purchasing anime for the collection.
Blood brothers in a nut shell. Takes place in a futuristic world with vampires and humans. There is a linage of vampires that can infect vampires into some form of controlled monster with the need to bite and infect others. The good guys are trying to stop them. Our main hero has to get the motivation to take on team baddies.
Odd thing was although my brother and I thought it was just one more anime, It drew in the attention of my father who isn't big into anime, but was drawn into it due to the action and mystery.
Overall i really started to get attached to the characters, the animation was on point and the story about the various types of vampires and how they interact with the humans in the city. It made it that much better..again i just wished that it lasted longer than it did. I can only hope that they continue this in the near future. No question though, Black Blood Brothers is a series that you really should check out.
