Product Description

Product Description

A deadly secret lies hidden within the walls of the high security Yokota Air Force Base. It has become home to a monstrous subspecies of vampires who are causing havoc in 1960s Japan. But the secret services are fighting back, and now they have sent an agent to finish the job. She is Saya, the last of the original vampires.

From Amazon.co.uk

Blood the Last Vampire brings a moody atmospheric quality all of its own to the Japanese animated film tradition. In a few short enigmatic scenes, we learn of the young girl Saya who is working for nameless government agencies and is sent, after one of her killings, to pose as a new pupil at an American school on an air force base. The Vietnam War is underway, but this does not concern her--she is involved with a far older war. All we ever find out is that she is not quite human, and that two of her schoolmates (and a whore in the mean streets adjacent to the base) are something yet again. Much of what ensues--gore and metamorphosis and nightmare chases--is all the more confusing for being seen through the eyes of a schoolteacher who never learns very much. This is a dreamlike film which does not have to make entirely literal sense, far more so than the creator's more famous Ghost in the Shell. It is also a memorable stage in the development of digitised animation. --Roz Kaveny

Despite the claim on the front that this film is by the 'makers of Ghost In The Shell' it's a statement that's only half true. The director of G.I.T.S assembled this team of exceedingly talented young animators and has helped them produce this stunning piece of work. But to be honest such name-dropping on a title this magnificent is needless.
The story is bare-boned. Not because there is none...but because it is clear that we are only witnessing a small part of the story. This isn't the beigging, and it certainly isn't the end, and refreshingly the film never apologizes for its lack of a begginning/middle/end with the standard ridiculous manga excuses. We don't need to know why there's a vampire (possibly the last) working for the government (possibly?) tracking down demons masquerading the earth as humans. We've heard all the stupid explanations before and they never stick, so it's nice to just be given the piece of art as it is. And it is a piece of art.
As you've probably already read-this has been toted as the first anime to use full digital animation. Again-another half-truth. It is in fact a dizzyingly perfect mix of traditional cel animation/cgi/and stunning digital special fx. The director can fully explore the surroundings of the characters in a way they never have been able to in anime. The camera sweeps and jutters thru' the gorgeously painted cityscapes and never resorts to the boring traditional techniques of animation. This is a film where finally animation is being used to its fullest as we see things we could never see in celluloid cinema.The colourization and sharp/yet grittness of the charactors is astounding, and those odd moments in the best of anime is in constant flow here as every scene dazzles the senses with detail and depth.

This film was the first thing I watched that I was aware of as anime and I enjoy it now as much as I did then. The, admittedly light, story sees a young girl working for a secret organisation infiltrates a school on an American airbase to find and kill the vampires that are there. The vampire that the main character hunts aren't the usual western style vampires but their more demonic eastern counterparts and this could leave some vampire fans a little underwhelmed. This is a brilliant anime with great animation and is exciting to watch. The main problem with this film is its short length, at a little over forty minutes this does mean that things are rushed slightly in places but Blood remains enjoyable nonetheless.

well, you have to balence the good and the bad, wieghing in at less than 50 minutes with very little extras (dvd) would normally make it hard to recommend.
But, as short as it is, this is an amazing peice of animation. the first five minutes of film had my jaw crashing to the ground, the movement was so sweet, pity there was only another half hour or so of it!
the plot is 'ok' but the charecters are good... a nice change from the usual 15 year old school girls in skirts.
in the trailer on the dvd i noticed footage that wasnt in the movie...
so i think it was cut!!! it would explain the short length!!!

This film is very good, despite it short length it has a story that quickly pulls you in and characters who really capture your imagination. The animation is excellent and the combining of the animation and computer effects was seamless.
This film is a must see for all anime/manga fans.

There have been so many reviews on this title I wouldn't know what to add. But still the feature is so good that I cannot help but give my view on things.
This feature is a teaser... it shows us a glimpse of what is a very dangerous yet exciting reality that we are unaware of. A reality where there are demons who will drink our blood, and heroes and heroines who kill them to protect us.
Brilliant sound effects, a clever mix between English and Japanese dialogue with subtitles (thus preventing the nearly always problematic dubbing ritual) and animation of superior quality (both CG and traditional) make the portrayal of the story and characters alone worth while viewing. Add to that, the deep and highly evolved character designs and the brilliant story and you have an amazing film, impossible for any critic to slander. The two latter elements I must explain, are part of the bigger picture... remember I said we only see a glimpse of this reality.
We are thrown into the story by witnessing Blood, doing what she does best... killing a demon. This one is merely the first of several. These demons apparently are seeking their prey around an American airbase in Japan. She goes undercover as a student in the American high school to seek them out and in turn terminate them.
We don't know what happened prior to this adventure, or what happens afterwards... and therefore it might be harder to understand what happens during it. But this film was not made to be understood, it was made to shock and dazzle you. There is no over dramatisation, no cheap emotion, just pure raw reality, bringing with it all the suspense it needs to get you right at the edge of your seat throughout half the feature.
