New Anime Series: Blood-C

First Episode Review for: Blood-C 01

Summary : Ninja Shrine Maiden, think traditional Japanese buffy the vampire slayer

Animation : Good nice contrast and high detail, very heavy on black and red, has a xxxholic feel about it (Un-surprising as they are both CLAMP anime)

Plot Potential: High, lots of potential for character growth and something dark going on at the back of it, it will be a case if they can get the thing going seriously by about the 5th episode so we have a series build up rather than the normal “movie at the end of a series”, in which they leave all their serious stuff to the last 3 episodes, if this happens you just know that it will not be an ongoing series.

Characters: Nothing new here but a nice mix of the normal school stock characters and the main character is a mix of total physical Klutz and Ninja, which you don’t often see happen without some physical Change, although the preying mantis Buddha statue was not one I recall seeing before

Music: very nice, good opening plus nice fight seen tunes.

Reminds me of: Clover(manga) , or if you insist on an anime somthing like Read or Die the TV Series (not the original OAV)

Overall: if they can get the plot going this will be fab, so it gets a rating of: “Next one now please!!”

id start with Ghost in the shell (the first movie), then the series (stand alone complex), if you give me some rough idea of the normal stuff you like, i can make better suggestions

What would be a good first step for beginners?

I occasionally buy some dvds (tekkonkinkreet and akira are the only ones I own), but I am not sure where one can buy/download animes.

And what would be a good start for a noob?
