And for some reason Saya looks younger than she did in the OVA. Overall this looks like a great show and I'm excited to see where it goes.
That's because Blood: The Last Vampire and Blood+ are separate entities, something akin to how Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell: Stand-Alone Complex are separate. Blood: The Last Vampire follows this whole, big, multimedia nonsense which used a novel, a manga, and a couple PS2 games to tell the bulk of the story, with the short movie acting as a sort of filler chapter to entice newcomers to pick up the rest. Unfortunately for us non-Japanese folk, it didn't work out, because the book and comic came out here several years after the movie, and several years after hype for Blood: The Last Vampire had long since died down. And of course, we'll never get the PS2 games.
Blood+, to my knowledge, is more of a shounenified retelling with no connection to the original. Disappointed me greatly when I heard that, which is why I stopped watching Blood+ back when it was fansubbed. I figure I may as well give it a second chance, though, since it's on TV now. And hey, anything's
better than Trinity Blood, which is what used to foul up that timeslot.
