Visual/Special Effects: 

This is a full animated movie and with CLAMP doing the artistic effects. I love almost all CLAMP’s projects (Card Captor Sakura, xxxHolic, Magic Knight Rayearth, Tsubasa Chronicles)! So, I don’t know if I’m biased or what but I do love their version of BLOOD. The effects are great, they even included some visual 3Ds. Thumbs up people!! (^_^)d

Audio/BGM/OST: 

As usual Anime BGM and OST are really great! But I didn’t get to sing along at the end, I don’t know why!! But it does make me feel what the characters in the OVA feel. So yeah, great job!!

Script:

The whole script is uniquely separated but at the same time based on the manga, BLOOD-C. Furthermore with Mr. Naoyoshi Shiotani and Mr. Junichi Fujisaku (who has directed more than his fair share of CLAMP projects and the original Blood+ TV series) as the director and screenplay editor, this script rocks!!

4Plot/Story: 

I’m still a little bit confused with the plot/story of this OVA but I did love how they made a dark story looks more darker. Furthermore,  this has more depth and insight than that of the TV series. There’s also the conclusive end but at the same time the open end that all anime fans know and understands. So, yeah, this is at least the saving grace of the TV series! The twist at the end with why the hell Fumito did that to Saya made me feel pity for the both of them and to hell with everyone else.

4.5Characters: 


Yes! Saya (same name of the heroine for all other BLOOD franchises) has been downright scary and serious here than in the TV series, which I do understand because even with the Blood+ and Blood The Last Vampire, I hate to see Saya in battle mode. *shivers* The other characters here also have their own fair share of innocence and dark sides. This is why I love CLAMP they can create dark sides that’s very in depth bordering psychotic even thought their animation is really nice and cute. Fumito (the antagonist) really made my heartache at the end because of how much obsession he has for Saya. All in all, they are excellently done!

Cast: 

With the seiyuus’ voices, there’s nothing else to say but… EXCELLENTLY DONE!

4.5Ending: 

I really do think this one is a little bit of tragic end. Because Saya said at the end “and now I am left… alone” this just strengthen my views that Fumito‘s villainous actions are just the result of his twisted love bordering psychotic obsession for Saya. He just wanted to keep Saya company or even cure her of her curse but in the end the good won and Fumito died. Fumito even said in the end you should’ve avoided me…” Such a heartache watching him kiss her and die. щ(ಥДಥщ)

4Overall: 

Thus, made me realize how I have obsession with dark plotted tragic stories. This OVA is greater than the TV series! (*≧▽≦)ノシ))
