In the time of the Vietnam War, an American military base in Japan is plagued with a rash of killings whose assailant is unknown. Enter Saya, a mysterious young woman who happens to be the last of the vampire race, and has been charged by her government agency employer to investigate the sinister killings. With demons and creatures abounding, Saya must infiltrate a school to put a stop to the bloodshed -- unless the monsters get to her first...
Thousands of years in the future, the world is overrun by demons and vampire lords. Doris, a young girl, has become the target of the great vampire lord Count Magnus Lee, who wants her as his plaything. After being bitten by the Count, she seeks the help of D, an elite vampire hunter, who decides he must venture out to slay the Count and his demon underlings to save this girl in despair.
Vampire Hunter D is very much a parallel to Blood the Last Vampire since they are both about hunting vampires, or evil demons at least. Of course D uses a sweet ass sword as well.
Blood The Last Vampire takes place in the Vietnam War Era. Saya, the last vampire, is sent in by her government to investigate a mysterious killing. They both have a relatively simple plot, the fighting scenes are insanely bloody, and they take gore to a different level. So if you're looking for a good bloody action vampire movie you just found one!
Blood: The Last Vampire and Vampire Hunter D both involve very violent vampire slaying obviously. If you liked one, you will enjoy the other; they have the same concept and lots of violence.
Dark, bloodthirsty and gruesome - Vampire Hunter D and Blood: The Last Vampire are two vamp films that really stand out for me as among the best in the genre. Although the animation styles do naturally differ, both films work off a story involving the hunting of dark creatures by lead characters that are much more than they first appear to be, sharing more in common with their enemies than is evident at first glance. They both work in a similar way too - silent but efficient, with only a hint of human emotion - and the stories also both give the impression that there is something much bigger going on that is only hinted at here in the movies. This richness of plot also allowed for subsequent anime productions of both.
The first reason is for example existence the same race of characters: vampires. Both series offer spectators the many scenes of the fight where is full of beautiful blood. I think every people who like great characters, they will be watch "Vampire Hunter D".
Both feature dhampirs seeking out and destroying creatures of the night, mostly vampires or vampire-like creatures, but some other monsters along the way as well. Both feature some nice gory elements and nothing's funner than seeing someone dominate something with a katana/sword!
Vampire Hunter D provides the audience with an experienced vampire-hunting vampire doing what he does best. The same could be said of Blood The Last Vampire, excepting the change of gender in the protagonist. The animations style is rather different, but both still create the sombre mood required for the story. With both protagonists wielding swords, hunting creatures of the night with lots of blood being spilled and still managing to maintain some humanity, it is hard to see why you would not like one if you liked the other.
Although the settings are quite different both Blood and D feature vampire protagonists hunting their own kind.
Both Blood the Last Vampire and Vampire Hunter D are dark action oriented horror stories. While Vampire Hunter D does a better job of explaining things, both movies have enough bloody action to satisfy even the most hardcore horror fans.
Naturally both movies are about vampires, but they also boast animation that was incredibly good by the time of their respective releases. The two protagonists are lonely and independent.
In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...
I believe that Hellsing and Blood have very similar elements in them, for one they both have vampire main characters. Also if you're looking for a different way of fighting, both anime series involve a lot of fighting and violence; however their methods of fighting are quite different, from close combat to gun fighting.
I would also wonder what it'd be like if both series crashed into each other as a cross-over, as they are so alike.
both Hellsing and Blood the Last Vampire are about vampires, but the similarities don't end there. Both have a darker tone that focuses a lot on the action scenes which are both exciting and bloody.
A main difference between these two anime is that in "Hellsing" the main fighter against vampires is a guy and in "Blood" it's a girl. In other ways the plot remains the same - one good vampire is fighting a bunch of mindless bad vampires. If you like action, lots of red and black colors in the background, and also spilled blood, you'll like both of these anime.
Blood is an incredibly dark movie. Its blend of 2D/3D animation has given the creators a lot of freedom to experiment with light and shadow. Hellsing's animation has the same techniques involved and it works well, and the anime also has a very sinister mood to it. Neither anime stray far from anger, horror and revenge. If you like horror and fantasy then both will surely tick all of the boxes.
In the distant future, the world lies in ruin and vampires rule the land. Mercenary vampire hunters fight the terrible forces of darkness - for a price; the most notorious of them all being the half-vampire named D. However, despite his actions that help humanity, he finds himself shunned by those he would save. When a girl named Charlotte is kidnapped by the vampire Lord Meier, her father hires D to bring her back - dead or alive. Competing with the vampire hunting Marcus Brothers for the prize, D encounters Meier first; but in the middle of their confrontation, Charlotte calls out Meier's name in worry and Meier reveals that she is accompanying him of her own free will...
Both anime deal with silent vampire/demon hunters who actually share blood-ties to vampires. Of course this brings an inherent conflict to both the personalities of Saya and D as they go about their job. The plots are equally simple but entertaining, and move at a similar fast pace. The level of gore in one is easily matched by the other. Vampire Hunter D has a more sci-fi/western setting whilst Blood is fixed in today's world, but they both still pull off a similarly atmospheric and dark look, with sophisticated, powerful action thrown in the mix.
Both series tell history about the same race: vampires. They have great scenes of the fights and pretty lines. An additional advantage are interesting, accessory characters. I think, that all people liking dark, blood and want to see good story, they must watch "Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust".
Everyone loves vampires! Especially those kind of vampires that are somehow... different. Both Vampire Hunter D and Blood the Last Vampire are dark, mysterious and still unlike other vampire-related anime. Two vampire who hunt vampires/monsters: not a new, but still interesting idea.
While Vampire Hunter D seems to be a classic around the anime world, the story takes on a familiar theme in Blood the Last Vampire. Both series involve an excellent storyline incorporating action and fighting, not to mention vampires! The mysterious worlds in which these characters are forced to live is an amazing thing to behold, both series will leave you captivated.
In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
If you like atmospheric demon-horror with good characterisation and good plot as well as the fantastic action sequences, then these two are well matched. Saya and Clare both have internal struggles to resolve and both are silent, rational killers with depth beyond their sword-wielding skills. The animation in both anime is also excellent, with distinctive, detailed styles. Also, there should be a definite gore warning on both.
Both Blood and Claymore have heroines with unique abilities, fighting and slashing demons. These girls have to fight monsters outside and inside alike, as part of them wants to join the monsters in their bloodshed. The only thing keeping them together are their friends.
If, like me, you enjoy a good horror romp, packed full with demons, fighting and bucketfuls of blood, I think you will enjoy both Claymore and Blood: TLV.
Both fronted by a very strong (both physically and mentally), beautiful female lead, their story is immortalised in some beautiful animation with the promise of a second series for more action.
Claymore and Blood the Last Vampire each revolve around demons. The series are dark and twisted following the struggles of the main characters as they are exiled from the people around them.
Constable Fuse is part of an elite Special Forces unit known as the Capital Police whose mission is to maintain peace during a time of civil unrest. Fuse becomes entangled within a web of intrigue and politics between the Capital Police, the government intelligence bureau, and a secret society known as Jin-Roh – the Wolf Brigade.
These are very dark anime with a protagonist who is a monster (one literally, one metaphorically) and masquerades as a human being.
There are a few but very well-made action scenes. Blood has better visuals but Jin-Roh is superiour in its storytelling.
