Blood The Last Vampire film is a live action adaptation of a Japanese anime film produced back in 2000 with the same title.
The story is set around and American Air Base located in Japan, during the Vietnam War.
Its main character is a Japanese girl named Saya, who relentlessly hunts blood sucking Oni(Oni: in japanese is translated as demon in english).
Saya is a 400-year-old half breed who hunts other demons. Raised by her father's retainer a man named Kato, she works loosely with an organization known as "The Council" while seeking out Onigen, the highest oldest and strongest of all the beasts.
Seeking clues about Onigen, Saya transfers to a school near the Yokota Air Base.
Normally a loner, Saya forms a friendship with a young girl named Alice (Allison Miller), whom she rescues from some vampires.
This live action production is very impressive adaptation and includes spectacular battles involving katana's and fights with superhatural beings.
The picture is an improvement in comparison to the original anime. The plot is slightly altered in comparison however overall I find the production exceeding the original anime.
Most importantly the Japanese cast are really japanese looking and not caucasians something that has been a real annoyance on other Japanese titles that have been Hollywoodized (eg. dead or alive or Dragonballz)
