Directed by Naoyoshi Shiotani, (Tokyo Marble Chocolate) Blood C continues one year after the anime series and what he has created is outstanding, as we are taken through the horror of humans and the agreement some of them have with the horrors that lurk in dark places.

From the outset you will be impressed by the animation and backdrops.

She feels a presence as she travels on the underground as a man transforms into a horror, (furukimono, the Old Ones) and starts devouring the passengers.



Saya swings into action and attacks the horror but during the struggle he manages to flee taking a young girl with him, at the next station Saya gives chase catching up with them she despatches the monster and saves the young girl just as the authorities arrive at the same time as the young girls friends car arrives, they take flight from the perusing cars and helicopter. Aided by someone on the other end of the co-pilots headset they are given directions to evade their chasers.

They are successful and arrive at a mansion, which happens to be the headquarters of SIRRUT a small team of young people dedicated at taking down the oppression of the young and defeat something called the ‘Tower’.
