Erik Brooks was half-man, half-vampire after his mother Carol was attacked by a vampire named Deacon Frost. He sought assistance from Noah Van Helsing and over time, vampires worldwide fear him as the "Daywalker" or "Blade". He investigates a vampire organization in Asia called "Existence" starting from Japan all the way to Southeast Asia.

I thought making an anime series based off of Blade sounded like a great marriage. I was way off. The first episode is kinda cool, but everything after just has no vibrance. The show wants to be dark and serious, but just comes off as boring angst. The acting is fine, the animation is fine, but the characters and plotlines are just boring.
