Good morning my loyal Painkillers, anime fans, and newbies to the site! Welcome to another edition of Anime Wednesday. It’s December, and we here at the HBCL came to a decision. Since Christmas seems to be coming earlier and earlier each year, we decided to hit Christmas over the head with Halloween joy. Welcome to Halloween During Christmas! Each Wednesday during this month I’ll be sharing some horror fun with an anime series or movies. Here is Blood: The Last Vampire.
The story is set in Japan in 1966, right before the Vietnam War. Here we meet Saya. She seems like an average girl, but she is actually a vampire slayer. She is currently hunting bat like creatures known as chiropterans. Once done, Saya’s American handlers brief her on her next mission. They tell her that she will be heading to Yokota Air Base. Its an American base in Japan, that was currently preparing for the war. Her mission was to pose as a student, and find out if chiropterans have invaded the base and to wipe them out.
This is a very enjoyable movie. It is less than an hour long, but you can see why this movie got novels, anime series and even a PlayStation 2 game. It took me a bit to find this movie on the internet, so if you want to watch this for yourself, happy hunting, but stay away from that 2009 live action mess that is on Netflix. You should all know by now that those live action features, and nowhere as good as the original. That’s all for now, I’ll be back next Wednesday with more!
