Inspired by the hit anime movie and manga, Blood: The Last Vampire, Blood is about a young vampire girl who fights other vampires to protect humanity.  If a single word could sum up about this series, it is then 'epic'.  If you liked the manga or movie, the series is similar in the fact that story has a young vampire girl fighting for humans.  Even though the main character Saya is a vampire who protecting humans, she is treated by the humans as a tool, she begins to have internal conflicts, should she protect humans or should she follow her nature?  What is unique about this version is it takes various settings, legends, folklore and takes the viewer all over the world.  With beautiful scenes and character designs Blood + was a great anime to watch.
If you like vampires, sword swinging action this anime series is loaded.  What is interesting about this series is that it connects various vampire legends.  With interesting and creative characters you can get anything from army commandos to school teachers.  The story takes the idea from the original Blood and turns it into a world wide conflict where both human, vampire or multiple organizations are trying to create vampire soldiers, but the future lies with the Mary Sue character Saya who is in conflict to save humans or to embrace her nature, she either the vampires savior or their destroyer...
