This anime feature blends digital computer animation with the more traditional drawn animation cells. The moody artwork complements the story of Saya, the last true vampire, who must find and destroy an evil group of blood-sucking creatures that are hiding, and killing, within a U.S. compound in Japan during the Vietnam War. This DVD presentation also includes a "making of" featurette and a trailer for the film. The voice of Saya is provided by Youki Kodoh, who starred in 1999's Snow Falling on

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Another example of animation that shows just how deep something as seemingly superficial as a cartoon can get.
The story ... is the sort of convoluted and often incoherent mess that is typical of the genre no doubt, rabid anime fans are better equipped to decipher its intricacies
Is much more effective at evoking a paranoid mood than at telling a coherent story, and the jerky action sequences are among the film's weaker visual elements.
With its dour insularity and clingy fidelity to realism, this overhyped slashfest fails to rise above the extravagant pointlessness that plagues inferior anime.
This 48-minute Japanese animated film earned accolades back in 2000 for being ground-breaking in its technique...but once you get past that small achievement, Blood: The Last Vampire is mediocre at best...
...in the wake of an astounding battle scene that literally sweeps the breath out of its viewers, the end credits begin to roll, and we're left wondering, 'that's it?'
Blood: The Last Vampire, which clocks in at under 60 minutes, is not only watchable, it's not half bad.
A wickedly bitter animated pill, you'd better leave the kids with a sitter.
Feels like a pilot episode for the most expensive made-for-cable cartoon ever produced, and if you expect quantity (or closure) for your $8 ticket, you may feel shorted.
