Hope I'm on the right board.
What does /a/ think of the Blood+/Blood-C franchise? Also, if you've watched Blood-C in its entirety, what's your personal opinion on the philosophy of human nature that's thrown in every episode or two, where the main antagonist starts musing to himself about what he thinks truly makes a person who they are, whether it's their memories, their environment, or something that you're just born as and will never change, etc. etc?
Been years, but I recall Blood+ being good. Outside of shounenshit, Vampires=phiosophy and good conflicts, so they usually get a good vote from me. Blood-C got dropped after episode 3, boring as hell, little to justify anything that happened.
I watched a few episodes into Blood+ back when it was on adult swim, but then it disappeared. Watched all of Blood-C before i realized it was after Blood+, now I have to finish Blood+. Enjoyed them both though.
oh blood-C doesn't pick up till about halfway through the series when the more prominent characters start to die off and the plot picks up. The first few episodes really don't contain too much.
bump? I thought it was interesting. Just me?
Blood+ was descent Blood C was shit.
Never trust Blood-C Saya's protective capabilities
And dont let her sing
Fuck off, you cunt, if people want to discuss it, they will.
I liked Blood Plus because of how closely it resembled the Last Vampire, it even sorta "expanded" on that series.
Blood-C was just terrible all around and the only thing redeemable was the OP and Watanuki.
Blood+ Saya was best
I liked the chevalier thing in the plus series... ugh... Can't really remember if I enjoyed the actual series, though
Oh, yeah, the OP were nice too
Didn't watch Blood C and don't plan too.
Diva > Saya
Blood+ was shit
Blood-C was great and I am not even joking. It was entertaining, especially the plot twist at the end of the series.
No, Blood C was shit
Why did Diva dressed herself as a little boy at the final cour of the series?
Blood C is just garbage.
whoa chill out dude. If you read my first post you'd notice I'm not exactly a regular on this board. I bump just in case people who WOULD be interested missed it the first time around. I'm not causing a disaster or anything.
I thought they both were nice... I prefered Blood+'s overall story compared to C's just because it was longer and something happened almost every episode while C took a while to get going. But once C got going, I enjoyed it, especially the "what makes someone who they are" 2deep4me stuff
I don't get it. Is Blood C a sequel to Blood +? Why is Saya in C so obnoxious looking?
C was so garbage the only thing in recent memory that I can honestly say is worse is Pupa.
Watched Blood+ and liked it, might get around in watching C someday.
Funny, I finished Blood+ last night. It was pretty good; Haji/Saya shot my loyalty kink through the roof.
I don't know. I'd assume that after Fumito captured her but before the experiment started, he changed her looks while he was also changing her memories, so that she'd be less likely to remember her former self. That's a possibility at least.
Blood: Best thing Oshii touched
Blood+: Decent standalone, if possessing all flaws of the era
Blood-C: Terrible DVD release, abhorrent broadcast
Blood C was complete shit. Especially that movie.
Blood+ was pretty mediocre.
>but I recall Blood+ being good.
Hm. Disappointing, guess it wasn't as popular as I'd have liked. Oh well, worth a shot asking.
Good lord no, she was boring and whinny as fuck
Git gud you anime plebeian.
>Hope I'm on the right board.
Nice blog by the way.
It's Saturday morning. Ask during nighttime and you might get more responses.
>Says I'll protect you.
>They end up dying.
Fucking great comedy.
This, Anyone who says Blood+ was good have legit shit taste or are nostalgia fagging hard.
I don't think there'll be more newfags during the "night".
I remember Blood C being trash and should Saya offer to protect you just commit suicide instead because chances are that is less painful
>admitting you're the original summerfaggot
That's social suicide on /a/.
Sorry for not watching anime all day, I've seen maybe like... 10 different shows?
>Nice blog by the way
What blog? Am I not getting a reference?
What are you talking about you retard?
It's not the AMOUNT of responses I was disappointed with, it's how many responses are negative. I can understand Blood-c having negative responses, but Blood+ got a lot more shit than I was expecting.
Blood+ was so bad it's awful
Blood-C was so bad it's good
Because it's not good? That show has legit problems.
You don't come on /a/ an go "Hi, guys this is my first day here.". That's like asking for your thread to get deleted.
Try to fit in. It won't work but try anyway.
Except it's popped full of holes, so not only will she get pregnant but you'll get super-AIDS and die painfully.
Do I need to spell it out more clearly so you can get it ?
How anyone can call Blood+ a "decent" series is completely beyond my comprehension.
The last 10 episodes, for one, go absolutely nowhere (pretty much everything is set for the final confrontation around episode 41, but they manage to stall until 47 or so) and include multiple instances of things that basically amount to "we could go hunt down Diva, but let's wait until she executes her big plan instead and just sit around this table in our sweet new NYC apartment for a couple months." They also create really ridiculous false drama and/or "revelations" late in the series by making everybody react to certain events in a way that makes absolutely no sense considering the rules of the fictional universe that these characters are all aware of, and then they react in shock when events unfold as you would expect in a universe governed by said rules (see also: everything involving Hagi and Amshel in the last several episodes).
There were storylines that went literally nowhere (the Sciff), a number of characters that the show treated as relatively major characters who served little to no purpose other than to have meaningless sidestories to half-heartedly justify dragging the series out to 50 episodes (Solomon, Van Argeno, Moses, Karman, Carl, James, Okamura, etc.), and an absurd cop-out ending. Not to mention the entire climax is a complete disaster and they don't even address things like the fact that even though they stopped Diva and everything, they still did so only after her broadcast got through to most of the world and, theoretically, turned everyone into chiropterans the way it did in New York City. I guess bombing a landmark in NYC is enough to revert all the human beings elsewhere in the city and around the world back into humans, despite there being no stated way of doing this at any point ever in the previous 48 or so episodes in the series? I'm still trying to figure that one out.
Ah well, you will find haters everywhere, especially if it's a (semi-)popular anime. That's just how /a/ is.
I can't seem to find my hipster cycle pic, so have a Chen.
Or you're just pretending to be stupid
I've seen a whole lot worse. Granted I don't watch anime very often so I'm probably also missing out on some amazing ones too, but I personally didn't have many issues with either. Except I'll admit Saya in Blood+ went from accepting her situation and even mercy killing her own father into little bitch when they first try to attack Deva's location around idk episode 10-15 or something
>I've seen a whole lot worse.
That doesn't change the fact that Blood+ is awful
>Almost a decade old
And that's not even touching on Saya's complete ineptitude as a heroic protagonist. She goes through the "too scared to fight -> sees horrible things happen to people because she's too scared to fight -> finally resolves to fight -> rinse and repeat" cycle about 9 times (not exaggerating) in the first 15 episodes alone and continues to do so all the way until the time skip. When she comes back, she's intolerable in the COMPLETE OPPOSITE fashion, because there's apparently no middle ground with Saya. And then for the last 10 episodes or so ALL dialogue between Saya and Kai (well, really Kai and just about any character Kai is willing to talk to, honestly) features some variation on "let's all go back to Okinawa and be happy!" Oh, she also spends most of that time bed-ridden and in dismal health, yet she's apparently still capable of fighting the big bad villain even in that state, which makes you wonder why the hell everyone is so scared of Diva and friends in the first place if they feel like they can put all their hopes into a consistently unreliable and emotionally unbalanced invalid.
And the only person in the series more useless than Saya is Hagi. His "fighting style" apparently consists of "take mortal injury, make Saya fight on her own for a while even if she can't, swoop in at the last second to throw a dagger that will mildly irritate an opponent because she's retarded and can't actually do anything for herself even when faced with death." He's pretty much the worst supposedly "badass fighter" I've ever seen in a series like this. He gets literally zero character growth in the series. He starts the series getting impaled by enemies, being emotionally aloof, relatively silent, and having a creepy infatuation with Saya and ends the series getting impaled by enemies, being emotionally aloof, relatively silent, and having a creepy infatuation with Saya
Eh yeah. This board kinda seems like /v/, but for anime. If it's popular, liked, or even average to most people, it's shit. And I recognize maybe 2, 3 shows tops after refreshing the front page a few times, which tells me lots of the stuff /a/ does like isn't liked elsewhere. Soyeahhipsterstuff
Blood+ isn't even popular
OK seems you're a complete retard.
Someone who is not a newfaggot would get nostalgic about the 90s. You were obviously a teen shitposter in the 2000s so you're getting "nostalgic" about them.
So literally the original shitposter summer cancer of 2005.
A few are retarded enough to admit it on /a/, you've been here for a long enough time to know this by now. Or you should anyway.
Okay Okay I get it, you guys don't like the blood series. OP out, you can leave this thread now since I'm like the only one who liked the whole series
>I can understand Blood-c having negative responses, but Blood+ got a lot more shit than I was expecting.
People can view Blood-C as a failed experiment or unintentional comedy while Blood+ is just boring, poorly paced, has some really bad drama and writing as well.
First thread I've seen in years. It wasn't even popular when it was airing.
>This entire post
People who watched it on Adult Swim seems to give a shit about it
>, but Blood+ got a lot more shit than I was expecting.
Considering a lot of good shows were airing at that time it's not surprising at all.
What the fuck are you even doing here ?
Blood+ was pretty decent. Not amazing, there was some awkwardly forced drama and irritating characterization in there, but I enjoyed it for what it was. I didn't watch it until a couple years ago but it felt like the kind of show I would've adored when I first started watching anime, and I still had fun with it at the time despite its flaws.
Blood-C was practically unwatchable and I don't even know why I finished it.
Have you posted something similar on other Blood+ threads before? I feel like I've read this already.
You remember what you've read 4-5 years ago ? That's quite the skill.
Please. I'm certain there was one last month.
Then were the fuck was Haji all this times? He did survived the final battle in Blood plus.
Blood+ is terrible. If you want a pasta I wrote about why i can post it.
I think this summons everything.
Nobody ask for that.
Blood-C is just so pointless.
Blood-C was hilarious. The movie couldn't even deliver that.
So how's the movie?
Blood-C was a great as a comedy
The entire Blood franchise is hilariously bad in that edgy tryhard kind of way. But it's somewhat entertaining to watch.
Blood-C had two of my favorites, Nana Mizuki and CLAMP, but I couldn't bring myself to take it seriously at all.
>Not posting the link
I enjoyed Blood+, my only complaint is that there were too many useless characters taking up screentime that should have been devoted to charactization
I laughed my ass off throughout the entirety of Blood-C. By episode 6 I was wondering if it was supposed to be a comedy.
When Japan try to do a horror show, they often fucked up and ended up making something that's totally hilarious instead.
For example: Another.
>When Japan try to do a horror show, they often fucked up and ended up making something that's totally hilarious instead.
The US does that too, only with books. Twilight, if you think about it, is actually a David Cronenberg-esque horror story.
Absolutely awful. Yawn.
>Is Blood C a sequel to Blood+?
>Why is Saya in C so obnoxious looking?
Because, outside of dark bishounen characters, CLAMP can't draw for shit.
Hey, Saya is beautiful.
Her pigtails are horrible. I was disappointed that she kept them for the movie. Actually, I was disappointed that despite being tricked into being a schoolgirl miko, she decided to keep wearing a uniform anyway.
Apologists pls go.
