But recently, he has suffered several crippling attacks at the sight of blood -- attacks which leave him incapacitated and out of control. Kazuna must now reunite with his sister who he has not seen in years, and discover the truth behind his family name and vampiric genes, before his bloodthirsty desires destroy himself, or others close to him.
Although both Hitsuji and Kara no Kyoukai are supernatural tales of vampires and monsters, this is definitely not the main focus of the show. Instead, the story develops by looking at the lives of the people affected by the creepy happenings.
Both are reasonably slow paced and will not appeal to people expecting something akin to Hellsing. However, I think if you enjoy one, you will enjoy the other.
