A vampire named Saya, who is part of covert government agency that hunts and destroys demons in a post-WWII Japan, is inserted in a military school to discover which one of her classmates is a demon in disguise.
In 1970, the four hundred year-old skilled samurai Saya is sent to the Kanto High School in an American military base in Tokyo by the Council, a secret society that has been hunting vampires for centuries. Saya has the appearance of a teenager but is the tormented half-breed creature with the soul of her human father and the powers and need of blood of her vampire mother. She is obsessed to face the powerful demon Onigen that killed her father. In the base, Saya saves Alice McKee, who is the daughter of General McKee and commander of the base, from the attack of several vampires. When General McKee is killed by a member of the Council, Alice runs to the hotel where Saya is lodged. They join forces and go to the countryside to chase Onigen.Written by

US military personnel are shown using Beretta M9s (US Military designation of the civilian Model 92F/FS, etc) which were not issued as sidearms for the US Military in 1970. The 92 wasn't designed until 2 years after this movie is set, and the side arm wasn't issued till 1990. See more »
You think the more demons you kill the more human you become, don't you? How naïve.

The story is based on the much acclaimed animae Blood. Being based on that and not have read the animae I can't really go into some issues. For example, the way the showed blood is done mostly with the use of CGI and in a special way. So if that's how it was shown in the book than it's okay. Some will hate it because monsters are done in CGI and weren't that good sometimes, it reminded me of Van Helsing and Legion were too many CGI tear the movie down. Still, they tried to kept the gore in it with real effects and the use of CGI. Of course the fights are done in Asian way, a bit like The Matrix. But that's so typical for Asian flicks. But the story enjoyed me and I was attracted to the screen the whole time. The use of English and Eastern language made it even more realistic. I liked it but I can understand that some will hate it due the CGI.
