hahaha these also works for the amv forum, but i saw this one first

this is...interesting Vampires. anyone know the song or who sings this by any chance? or the non-hellsing anime used for it?


at about 2:05 on that video of Rob's (arjay2813) there was clips from my personal fav, Vampire Princess Miyu
I began thinking... (I may have strained a muscle in my head) there is a LOT and I mean a LOT of vampire anime out there...

So I will start with miyu my top vamp right above Vampire D. Miyu is much more an anti-hero for she does drink blood, of victims she deems pretty. At her side is a masked individual dedicated to her, Lava (larva in some translations). She seems almost detached to the world which I really liked, and she was not bound by many of the Vampire hold backs like light, and crucifixes, they just did not do anything to her. I guess i found it a great blend of dark looking animation (the oav especially) and great character designs.
(before there ever was Saya and Haji there was Miyu and Larva.)
Vamp D, well, he is just a bad *** and talks to his hand... and it is a nostalgic anime to me.

anyone else?

you know this is a very HARD question, there isnt just 1 for me.... Blood+ is nice though, in sub anyway.....

Edit: my reasoning behind blood + being i really like the story its very sad, a trajic story about two sisters one evil one good, the ending is good, allowed me to walk away feeling satisfied, some of the anime like Trinitiy Blood (the one makashi lik3z) leave you wanting more, they dont really finish anything off...

This here is a nigh impossible question for me, but if I had to choose I would have to say Trinity Blood.




And sorry to disappoint you, Funk, but I haven't seen that much vampire anime.

I need to watch more vampire anime so I can comment here dammit. sad.gif

The only things that come to mind are Vampire Hunter D and Blood(TLV and +) which have both been mentioned. Loved D, tho it does show it's age now it's a sentimental favorite I guess. Blood+ I really like despite it's incessant efforts to make me hate it, TLV was probly cooler but felt a bit rough[my judgement could be clouded by seeing the series first...]. Must do some research.

Actually now I remember I did see two or three episodes of Trinity Blood on CN but I didn't have a clue what was going on, I just about decided I liked it and then it disappeared, come to find that was the end of the series. It didn't feel like much of an ending to me.

You know maybe I should have titled this thread vampire/dark supernatural (cause I kinda was including things like Wicked City/and Witch Hunter Robin in my mind; but those are NOT vampire)
I am like you all, as sometimes annoying Blood+ can be, there is just enough in it, that is entertaining to watch.

On another note, NOTHING BEATS A 200 YEAR OLD MAN THAT IS A PERVERT FROM WICKED CITY!!!

yep actually ADV was in a deal with them to be their Distributer but for some reason they had a disagreement
so with out a distributer they pretty much went bankrupt
cause i think they were doing some anime at the time and their now floating around with out a license and probably not completely dub

btw, i agree with your earlier comment on the show's tendency to annoy (and drag things out!!!)... but, yeah, unrequited love gets me almost every time... it's one of the reasons that i enjoy things like tenchi, ranma 1/2, and love hina so much... well, and the violence... biggrin.gif

not that you mention it, i do see it!!! niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice... tongue.gif love hina is just plain fun. for purchasing actual dvds, i'd recommend one of the import sites like sphiatt.com or meganimedvd.com... they tend to carry everything in one neat bundle and have a pretty good chance of stocking the dubbed versions, if you're into that... for other means of obtaining it i'd say $^&$*^*$ or news groups'd be your best bet... and some of the trader sites can be cool, but i'm waaaay too selfish to trade... i collect. biggrin.gif

A tastey mix indeed. Tenchi in all of it's encarnations is fun. Love Hina, should have been friggin longer) And you know I like Ranma.
I never put Ranma in a harem category. There is just as many people trying to get with Akane as Ranma. The cast is also almost 50/50 in gender. Probably because the writter is female. It is in that whole huge cast of muli relationship thing going on.

i have seen many vampire anime's and like most of them the last i watched was "Black Blood brothers" i liked it but i am not saying that its everyones cup of tea. blood the last vampire is a good one as well. i have watched some of Vampire Princess Miyu but didn't get very far its hard to find some of the lesser known or older animes on the internet unless you know where to look. i like vampire hunter D as well having seen both movies and owning bloodlust. but my fav is hellsing tho some may think of it as to mainstream but its a good show.
