Aw, c'mon, it may not be as bloody as you expected it to be (though Blood: The Last Vampire, the movie prequel, is quite gory anyway), but hey, at least we've still got the drama, some touches of romance (Hagi/Saya! XD) and action. It may not be that comedic though, and parts can be tearjerkers for some...
So, any fans of the Chiropteran slayer, or her chevalier, or even the Chiropterans themselves? *waves* And if you look closely, you can see some similarities between Blood+ and FMA...
