Black Blood Brothers 1 Season

Season 1
4.0 out of 5 stars (3) IMDb 7.2/10

It's been a decade since the sacred war between humans and vampires. The rise of the Kowloon Bloodline, a new breed of monsters bearing an infectious bite, set the streets ablaze under the reign of their king. Humanity had never witnessed such pure, animalistic brutality.

Format: DVD
There's really not a lot of original, un-cliched vampire television and/or movies out there. Your best bet is anime.

One good example of this is "Black Blood Brothers: Bad Tidings," the first volume of a very short anime. Gorgeous art, a likable lead vampire, and a very unique mythology -- and while the first couple episodes are decent but not outstanding, the story starts to really bloom when the bad-guy vampires enter the scene.

Two vampires -- powerful Jiro and his little brother Kotaro -- are stowing away on a Chinese ship on their way to Japan. Their destination: the Safe Zone, where vampires and humans are allowed to coexist.

But then a firefight breaks out on board between some immigrant vampires and an anti-vampire military squad, and Jiro has no choice but to get involved. Once they stagger ashore, they are helped by a Company worker named Mimiko -- but things get nasty when the military shows up again, separating the brothers and capturing Jiro (after he accidentally falls in a fountain).

But Kotaro is in even more danger, along with Mimiko and the immigrant vampires -- one of them is a Kowloon Child, the most lethal and contagious form of vampire. And to save Mimiko, his brother and all of Japan, Jiro must break out of his cell and somehow destroy all the Kowloon Children that are trying to make it to the Safe Zone. If he doesn't, then all the vampires there might be destroyed...

"Black Blood Brothers" spends a minimum of time setting up its mythology -- you get to see what's going on through brief flashbacks and references to the past. But it's an interesting one -- lots of different breeds of vampires, with different powers, weaknesses, and histories. Definitely different from the usual Dracula copies or bad White Wolf ripoffs.
