Blood: The Last Vampire is one of my favorite Anime movies of the past few years. The only thing that could have made it better is if it were about an hour longer. Speaking of longer... Ningyoushi now has up for pre-order the new Limited Ed. 12-inch Saya from the Blood Anime. Here's the scoop on Blood:
Throughout the passage of time and the shifts in backgrounds, a particular war continues to leave its mark on history, extending its influence into the modern world. There are two major groups involved in the ensuring war. The first group consists of monsters known as Chiropterans who can change their appearances into that of human beings. They are actually immortals who feed on the blood of the living. The second group is an organisation known as the "Red Shield", formed to track down these monsters and exterminate them. Otonashi Saya is a high-school girl who lives a peaceful life with her family. The only problem is, she has no recollections of her life beyond that of the past year. However, her happy life will be destroyed by an event that will lead her to her destined fate.Unfortunately, they don't say who produced this cute little figure. Is it a Medicom RAH? Is it someone else I have never heard of? Only the Shadow knows. The pre-order price is $125 and the estimated shipping date is the end of July 2005(?). I guess they probably meant July 2006. Now they just need a Chiroptera figure for Saya to disembowel. Delicious.
