3.0 out of 5 stars Good but doesn't capture the essence of the series., 3 Jan 2014
Taking place a year after the events of Blood C, there is legislation in place that introduces curfews for minors and regulates the use of the internet, and some young people continue to fight for their own freedoms via underground methods. One such group calls themselves Surat, whose target is Fumito Nanahara, a man who wields great influence over the political world, and secretly controls Tokyo with an iron fist. While using the internet as a weapon to discover more information about Fumito via clever hacking skills, they learn about "Tower", the secret organization behind Fumito which engages in human experimentation.
When members of Surat attempt to set up an ambush in the subway to expose the truth behind "Tower", a creature suddenly appears and attacks the passengers. During the attack Saya appears, a young girl who uses a Japanese style blade to slay the creature. The same Saya who lost everything that she cared about in the horrific "experiment" in Ukishima Province, she has followed Fumito to Tokyo in search of revenge. What sort of "experiment" is Fumito and "Tower" trying to conduct using the Old Ones? And can Saya finally achieve her goal of vengeance on Fumito?

I enjoyed Blood C a lot, with its excellently animated action scenes and clever storyline, the series made me want more and when I saw at the end of the series that there would be a follow up movie, I was excited because I thought any loose ends from the series would be wrapped up.

Blood C: The Last Dark just fails to capture the essence of everything I enjoyed about the series, it neither has the same level of action scenes nor the cleverness of the series storyline, and just felt rushed to me, and although I got some answers to questions left over from the season, I was given more questions that could have been easily dealt with.
At first I thought it was a problem with the dubbing and things got messed up in translation/interpretation, but then I watched it again in Japanese and was left with the same feeling.
Don't get me wrong this is not a bad anime film, but for me was a little disappointing and is more of something I would watch again if it happened to be on TV.

This review is from: Blood C: The Last Dark [DVD] (DVD)
I have not seen the series, so watching the final episode I was slightly lost, although much is explained during the feature. Blood C consists of both regular animation and 3d graphics. Our super hero Saya is after the bad guy Fumito who is connected to an organization called the Tower. They are in cahoots with the government in enacting curfews in order to capture Saya. Saya in turn hooks up with a group of computer hackers who are trying to bring down the system and Fumito. In order to kill Bill, er ah Fumito, Saya must first get an Uma Thurman blade.

The characters in the feature seem to be geared toward a younger audience, but one that is old enough to watch the blood, violence, and cartoon nudity. This is a series I might obtain should they get it all together as one unit. 3 1/2 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Yet Another "Blood (insert whatever here)" Cash Cow., 24 May 2014
This review is from: Blood C - The Last Dark (DVD)
What can be said about this? This franchise was never meant to be a franchise in the first place, but in spite of all that Clamp, and Production I.G. did a excellant job of creating the animation CGi and drawings, too bad they had to do it on such a weak convoluted story suffering from too many plot holes and unanswered questions with an ending that was such a blatant rush job that I presumed the money was running out sooner than they thought. The original "Blood, The Last Vampire" movie, though had cinema showings, was basically a stand alone, 45 minute promo show reel to highlight Production I.G.'s new 3DCGi investments back then for any producer, creator with a good story and a good budget to utilse their "New toys". that's all. But because it turned out to be such a boxoffice success that it had the later alternate stories to cash in on that success, but alternate stories because there was nothing before it to go on like a running manga, or TV series. So five stars for the brilliant animation minus 2 stars for crappy story. Good anime for a rainy weekend, but nought else.
