Very moving anime, 9 February 2007
Author: chrichtonsworld from Netherlands

The first episode will blow you away! The visuals and animation is excellent. It gives you an idea what to expect from the series. The story is beautifully told and has some nice characters. At first it seems like a simple tale about good versus evil. But further in the series it gets clear it isn't that simple. Matters are more complicated because the characters cannot be defined as pure good or pure evil. The good characters have their bad sides and the evil characters show their good sides. Like in real life. In "Blood +, a lot is happening and judging the first episodes it seems like an action series. But after having seen all episodes I now know it is a drama. A very good one indeed. It is about the characters. Saya, Kai and Haji and all the other characters have an important role and illustrate how special Saya (main character) is. There are a lot of episodes in which you can relate to some of the characters. Drawn into the series you will be moved. The pace is a bit slow. And they sure took their time for "Saya', to realize and remember who she is. I also expected some spectacular growth in strength and abilities. Certainly when you compare it with "The chevaliers". But I think most of her strength comes from inside and her love for her friends and all other people. The music is wonderful and makes the anime more moving. Sometimes it will be difficult to follow this series,but if you stick with it,you will be rewarded!
