THE PLOT THUS FAR
The battle continues in Blood + Volume Four, more adventures as Saya Otonashi battles the evil Chiropterans! A normal high school student who suffers from amnesia, her destiny is partially revealed when a stranger presents her with a katana. Soon she finds herself fighting Chiropterans – ravenous creatures that can change their form, disguising themselves as human beings. An organization called the Red Shield has been waging a private war to wipe them out. They travel to Ekaterinburg during the continued struggle, but no one’s safe.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Blood Plus is back with its fourth volume of episodes. Spinning out of 2000’s Blood: The Last Vampire, we’re treated to an anemic series that fails to capitalize upon Production I.G.’s original work. This show faces the same problem that a lot of the Adult Swim anime battles against. It’s a limp wristed approach to the violent dynamic of popular Asian animation. That doesn’t mean it’s kiddie friendly.
