Blood+ 02-05 Roundup

(Yes, I’m still following this series, on subs albeit)

In lieu of the promised, vampire schoolgirl sword-killing action promised earlier on, I’m going in for a little roundup of the episodes so far.

Basically, schoolgirl learns she’s a vampire and tasked to exterminate monsters called Chiropterans. End.

Yes, it’s going at a SLLLLOOOOOOOW pace for now. After the nice action of Episode 02, it’s really kinda fizzling out.

So I’m going for some character analysis.

Saya – Protagonist of this story. 17-yr old(well actually older) normal joshikousei. And as we all know, all “normal joshikousei” in anime invariably become mahou shoujos, get some form of special power , chosen to pilot mechas for war/saving humanity and/or etc.. In Saya’s case she’s revealed to be a vampire. Now… if she had half of Evangeline’s badassness……

George – Saya’s father. Currently out of action due to bitten by a Chiropteran while trying to save Saya (instead of letting her daughter do it when she’s supposed to) and kidnapped by the U.S. Military. Most probably will turn into a Chiropteran and get killed by Saya in an overtly emotional and overdramatic manner.

Kai – Angst-kun of this series. Pretty much the hotheaded guy every anime requires. I speculate he *will* somewhat gain special powers and help Saya out, if the animators feel like keeping him around… ohh, I can imagine.. him going all yellow and spiking hair and shouting “Kamehameha“. Either that, or he’ll be the fodder for some imouto-ai and family “togetherness” crap/boring plot/filler.

David – Mr. MIB of the series. Has a history with Saya and is currently “in charge” of her. He could be killed in combat, bolstering Saya’s quest to kill Chiropterans or hang around until the end giving the “Saya. Hasshin suru.”…orders

Haji – Mr. Mysterious of the show. Saya’s shinobe. I have no doubts he’s a Chiropteran or was once one. I can imagine him going to Chiropteran form and face “End Boss for Protagonist Sidekicks” or taking care of “EndBoss for Protagonist’s” minions.

Ahh…. in any case, I want more Episode 2-esque Saya- Killing Machine mode action. It’s soo boring now. Ah, well, at least it’s not Ramune :P.

    Saya and Haji could start a sexual relationship an she gives birth to some little Chiropterans *kawaii desu ne* ^_~ Then she has to kill her own children…makes me think of Alien 4 in some way *rofl*

    Yeah… that’s just wrong. Vampires, sure, but vampire-ish monsters? No. Just no. :(

    Forest didn’t bite George, he slashed him with his claws.

    Plus Saya was badass for about a minute in the second episode, it wasn’t exactly a lot :p She kicked a bit of Chiropteran ass in episode 4, too, but it was a bit too dark to see properly!

    Yes, he didn’t bite George, but knowing anime cliché’s, he’s got a really high chance of turning into a Chiropteran….somehow. From the first episode onwards, I didn’t really think that George will be around for more than 10 -15 episodes.

    One more wish I hope that the animators will do is give Saya long hair :). Dunno why, I just don’t really like her hairstyle now.But then, it’s tons better than her design on Blood: The Last Vampire ;).
