One day, after a man appears and gives her a katana sword, her destiny begins to be revealed. Soon she finds herself fighting the latest threat to humanity – Chiropteran monsters, ravenous immortal creatures that can change their form, disguising themselves as human beings.

Saya’s journey for the truth has begun.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 21, 2007
Vampires are usually portrayed as sexy mysterious people, or as bloodthirsty monsters. In "Blood+," you get two for the price of one.

And this unusual vampire anime gets off to a solid start in the first volume -- there's plenty of gory, taut action scenes, as well as some mystery and slow exposition. While it's technically a spinoff of a movie, this series stands easily on its own -- lots of action, monsters, and gallons of vampiric blood.

Saya Otonashi is anemic, and she doesn't remember anything about her life before she was adopted by a kindly veteran, George, and his sons Kai and Riku. Other than that, she's a perfectly normal Okinawa schoolgirl. Then a monster attacks her, one night at her high school.

She's saved by a beautiful, mysterious man carrying a cello case, who forces her to drink a little of his blood. She destroys the monster in a matter of seconds -- unaware that her punky, overprotective brother Kai also saw the monster. Soon American military forces arrive to clean up, and everything is hushes up.

And Saya's confusion only grows when she finds that George is discussing her mysterious past with a man named David. She goes on a search for answers -- both from the cellist, Haji, and from George. But then George is attached by one of the monstrous, vampiric Chiropterans, and Saya finds that she may be the only one who can stop it.

Technically "Blood+" is actually a spinoff from an older anime movie, "Blood: The Last Vampire." But while that movie concentrated on action and monsters, the show seems to be more interested in exploring a young vampire girl's growing problems, and exploring this unique vampire mythos. And it IS pretty unique -- it's more like a disease than a supernatural unlife.

Okay, first off I really enjoyed it, but there's a major flaw, these volumes (1-4) only have 5 episodes each and there seems to be no plans on releasing more so going with these volumes you'll only make it to episode 20 out of a total of 50 episodes. If you really want to watch this series you should go with the increadibly expensive Blood +: Part One with Bonus Disc and Blood +: Part Two, however that (at the time I'm writing this) is extremely expensive, approx $250 for USED and $400 for NEW.

So if you don't mind not finishing the story that at episode 20 is still building up, I encourage you to get this, but if you like to see things through to the end (like me) you're better off without it.

This is not a review of just this DVD. Instead I am reviewing the entire Blood+ anime series as a whole. This series immediately grabbed my attention from episode 1 with its magnificently crafted storyline, depth of characters, and interesting blend of mystery, romance, and action. I would highly recommend this anime to anyone who enjoys a powerful and emotional series that is at the same time thoroughly entertaining. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

What more could you want in a girl? Saya is back but she is missing her memory. What happened so long ago to cause her to forget everything? Now, after living with a family for a year, she is needed to fight again. The Chiropterans, just another name for vampires, are back. And it looks like the American Army may have something to do with them. Can Saya and those who fight the darkness that may spread over the Earth stop the vampires before it becomes too late? Will Kai go out with Mao? Will Julia wear anything outside of that bland doctor's outfit? Will David ever smile? Well, let's move on.
Great music, great artwork, kind of lame opening credits, but the overall setting is perfect. Just the right amount of hope and fear, of dreams and nightmares. What is normal and what is just under the surface of reality? And five episodes on one DVD! Get it.

Blood + is more than just a gory vampire show. It shows a long history of two sisters, those who serve and protect them and why they are trying to kill each other. It also shows the struggling relationship between Saya and Kai. Kai knows that Saya is a Vampire like monster but still says that she is still his little sister and he will protect her no matter what. There are many underlieing stories combined in the siries than just the main one. I would recomend this to everyone who likes Anime. It is excelently drawn, and very realistic. The move that came before it though, I would not recomend that you watch it. It does not cover anything about the siries, just shows what would be a two part episode, very poorly drawn and not life like at all. This sieries is MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH, 1000 TIMES MUCH BETTER!

An unusual anime, it gets off to a bit of a slow start but the plot begins to get very interesting. At first all a young woman called Saya knows is that she's been in a coma for quite some time and appears to be nothing more than a normal girl. However, she is soon revealed to be an ancient vampire with an evil twin attempting to flood the world with hideous monsters. This is revealed to her through her mysterious friend Haji, and she soon acquires many different friends ranging from David, who's a stiff and stalwart and all round serious minded individual with a serious drive about nearly everything, to Louis, a pudgy but friendly Jamaican man who's surprisingly tough (and never gets injured a single time) and can raise some serious hell with his arsenal of guns. Others include Kai, a young but impressionable and surprisingly tough kid joins her on her quest. You'll meet courageous journalists, wickedly powerful vampires, and the mysterious and psychotic Diva, who is the one responsible for it all.

The only bad thing I can say about this anime is that it's VERY expensive and I was lucky to get it for free.
