Still Waiting To See
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've followed Blood since the 2000 film which was dark, brooding, and angry; a truly sensual treat to the senses, primarily because of its equally dark, brooding, and angry main character. When the 2005 anime series Blood+ was released I watched excitedly, ever hoping for the appearance of the Saya from the movie version. While the series developed well and the story was engrossing, the Saya from the series never reached the level of the her motion picture counterpart. I can't say it was a disappointment because the series was so well executed.

When I found Blood-C, I hoped to find yet another incarnation of Saya who might stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the 2000 film version. I'm still waiting. I can't say I dislike the series because it has elements that are enjoyable to watch and a story the moves slowly toward bigger things. Still it lacks the intensity of the film or even the first series. In that the series is still ongoing, I can't say whether it will develop into the master work of the film or Blood+. I continue to hope and, for now, continue to watch.

If you enjoy the Blood concept, Blood-C may be enough to hold your interest and, as I said, hopefully it will develop into another arm of the original, engrossing idea.
