Product Description

Amazon.ca

Saya, the last true vampire, battles the bloodthirsty demons attacking an American base in Japan during the Vietnam War. Much of the story takes place during the late afternoon and evening, and the artists use shadows, reflections, and light with exceptional skill: the look of the film is more interesting than the underdeveloped story. Saya wields a deadly sword and pursues her foes with chilling ferocity, but she's silent and sullen and fails to develop as a character: the viewer has no idea how she views her deadly occupation. Albeit a visually striking film, this dark, violent work fails to live up to its billing as "Japan's first fully digital animated feature film": the three-dimensional objects and effects are digital, but the two-dimensional characters are hand-drawn. Nor is the film really "from the creators of Ghost in the Shell." Blood came out of a group that Ghost director Mamoru Oshii organized to encourage young talent, but he didn't direct it. And at 48 minutes, it's very short for a feature, although this edition includes a rambling 21-minute making-of film and a 3-minute trailer. It seems unlikely that Blood "will transform Japanese animation," but other artists may use its visual style to tell more compelling stories with better-developed characters. Unrated; suitable for ages 17 and up for profanity, brief nudity, and considerable violence. --Charles Solomon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: VHS Tape
and in this case it works perfectly. For some reason i felt they pulled off a pretty good punch in the 45min, left me with a memorable experience, and didnt overstay their welcome, it was almost refreshing to be able to watch something in so fullfilling in a short time. I liked how she just inexplicably flushed out the vampires and attacked without warning or any evidence that a vampire was present. the movie moved at nice brisk pace and held my attention. I also liked how she just nearly ignores humans and lives by her own rules because whose gunna stop her? pretty cool and one of the better animes ive seen.

Your basic vampire is perfectly suited to anime -- beautiful, seductive, and opulant.

Well, most of them, anyway. Things are a bit different in "Blood: The Last Vampire," an anime movie that bravely throws out most of the vampire preconceptions, as well as plot exposition. It's not a total success storywise, but it's an effectively dark, moody piece of bloody action.

As the movie opens, we see a mysterious young girl, Saya, on a train. When the lights go out, she savagely attacks a man at the other end of the train with a sword.

It turns out the man was a Chiropteran -- a sort of bat-vampire. When her coworkers arrive to clean up the mess, Saya learns that the Chiropterans have infiltrated the general public -- and she has to go undercover at a girls' high school near an American military base. She isn't happy about it, but goes anyway.

Saya begins snooping around for evidence of Chiropterans, and finds it -- a pair are disguised as ordinary high school girls. But when she corners them, a timid nurse accidentally gets involved in the bloodbath that ensues -- and a deadly cat-and-mouse game between the mysterious Saya and her monstrous prey.

"Blood: The Last Vampire" is one of those movies where the plot isn't the overwhelming force. In fact, the actual story isn't much -- it feels like tuning into an episode of a weekly TV show, without much explanation for who Saya is and what is going on. And after the first third, the movie is pretty much entirely devoted to "Saya hacks and slashes her way through the school while the nurse screams a lot."

But the visual presentation is stunning -- every scenes is saturated with shadows and vague, pale light.

First of all, let me say that I'm not a big anime fan. I've watched a few of these films, but I just can't get into this stuff. "Blood" is okay, but it's not that great. There isn't much to work with here other than a few demonic vampires and some explosions. The characters are underdeveloped, the story is weak, and the entire film moves at a snails pace(which is bad since this flick's only about forty-five minutes long). The main character-the lady vampire killer-is never developed well enough to let you understand what makes her tick.
I agree with another reviewer that had this been a pilot for a series, it would work rather well. It leaves many unanswered questions and, as stated before, the characters just aren't developed well enough.
In closing, if you are a huge anime fan, go ahead and buy this. It will not add anything to your collection, but you may want to keep a copy around just in case you find yourself with a little time to kill. If you're just curious about anime, like myself, don't bother with this one. There's nothing convincing contained herein.
