About Blood

Blood: The Last Vampire takes place in a world in which teropterid-like beasts infest the planet and kill people to drink their blood.

Saya, a mysterious little girl, is one of the most skilled teropterid slayers. 

She is sent to an American army base where the evil creatures are threatening.

Blood+ centers around Saya Otonashi who is an ordinary girl who lives an ordinary life with her foster parents. She doesn’t recall much of her past.

When she finds herself in a life-threatening position, things go crazy. A blood-thirsty creature attacks her and she is saved by Haji, a mysterious man.

She joins an organization to eradicate these creatures from the face of the Earth after a bizarre turn of events.

Blood C is the story of Saya Kisaragi who is a schoolgirl and demon slayer at night. Soon, her father gives her a ceremonial sword and she defeats all the evil spirits in her village.

A common thread connecting all parts is the fact that they share the main character, Saya.

Their personalities differ, but they have the same hair color (black), and similar hairstyles.

Other characters appear in the Series in similar roles. The stories are all very different, and each one has its unique elements.
