Story

Only good. It seems to lose its way about half way through. It is a nice change from the typical vampire anime though. There quite a few bad guys in this very short anime. This seems to have been done just to get the main character to fight in as many cool different ways as possible 

 

Animation

Good, characters look good. The scenery is not handled well in places. Occasioanlly there is some inconsistencies in the drawing of the characters. It does have its own style of animation though and some amazing action sequences.  

Sound

The music is mostly good with a rather stylised jazz theme, although a little inappropriate in places. Sometimes jazz doen't go well with the undead. The sub version is by far and away better than the dub. The dubbed version is not bad, but the actors playing the sub version do a lot better

Characters

Boring, with the exception of the lead. Alucard is pretty much the definition of an anti-hero. He oozes class and you can't help but like him, even though you know he is not a good guy.

Overall

How vampires should be. If you have recently watched, or been forced to watch, twilight and are wondering how a vampire should behave

7/10 story
8/10 animation
6.5/10 sound
5/10 characters
6.8/10 overall
