* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Despite the show's mixed reputation, its soundtrack is still great all thanks to Naoki Sato. The best ones are [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i0zzngJgyM "Destiny"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i0zzngJgyM "A Price For The Winner, A Punishment For The Loser"]]. The opening and ending themes, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewvAGAluWC4 "Spiral"]] by Dustz and "Junketsu Paradox" by Nana Mizuki herself, also deserve a mention.



* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: When Saya sings while going to school or home. And sometimes it's about her day, laundry or her dad. [[spoiler:Oddly enough, Fumito never reveals the reason for imposing this trait on Saya, if it has a reason other than ForTheLulz]].

** The Dog! A lot of people speculated that it's [[Manga/{{xxxHolic}} Kimihiro Watanuki]] due to his voice actors (both [[Creator/JunFukuyama Japanese]] and [[Creator/ToddHaberkorn English]]) and that he mentioned owning a shop where he grants wishes. And not to mention, the ONLY character who is on Saya's side and knows what the hell is going on.

* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler:Saya's life is being orchestrated as TrumanShowPlot and an experiment and everyone (except Saya, Fumito and Yuka) all die at the end in the hands of a wacky monster]]. Then, the 2012 movie, ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'', has the similar premise as well [[spoiler:which includes a guy being stabbed by an unicorn to boot!]]. Of course, the movie used to be shelved in 2009 before being released in 2012.

* StrangledByTheRedString: Deconstructed with Saya and Tokizane. At first, they don't have any meaningful conversation until Tokizane witnessed Saya's slaying of the Elder Bairn at episode 7. By then, he kept Saya's secret and after the school massacre in episode 9, he comforts Saya and confesses his feelings to her which Saya lampshades why. [[spoiler:Until the last two episodes revealed that Tokizane is just hired to play as the "brooding love interest" and he hates it because he only wants money and dislikes Saya's nature]].
* SuperlativeDubbing: The Spanish dub of the series was met with critical acclaim and was widely recognized as one of the best made in Spain in years. In special, Creator/CarmenCalvell's starring role as Saya turned the heads of everybody and was called one of the highlights of the show.

** Though most of the characters are [[spoiler:hired by Fumito to act as Saya's "friends"]], the biggest one is Tadayoshi, who happens to [[spoiler:half-human, half-Elder Bairn]].

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: At first, the show presented Saya as a skilled warrior against the Elder Bairns, but the problem is that she fails in protecting and saving people. The most blatant example is in episode 8 and 9 [[spoiler:where she ''just watches'' (we are not shown if in shock or merely surprised) several of her classmates ''die'' before she attacks, and at the end, all of them except the class representative are dead]]. Her mourning of their deaths was supposed to come out as sympathetic but given the track record of how many people died throughout the show and the [[IdiotBall Idiot Balls]] that she and these people had been holding on, it's not. Even after it was revealed that [[spoiler:she was under specifical brainwashing all the time and the events were being controlled from the shadows,]] it's not easy to forgive her for what is too easily perceivable as sucking in the hero job.

** Episode 8. Yeah, nice going Saya! Really good of you to [[spoiler: just stand there while an Elder Bairn started coming towards the class and not warn anyone to ''run.''

Of course, the Elder Bairn corners and kills them easily.]]
** [[spoiler: The Motoe twins, Tokizane, and Kanako.]] Yeah, there isn't any way that [[spoiler: trying to betray a MagnificentBastard, with a collection of deadly beasts at his disposal, could possibly end badly. No way at all...]]
*** Possibly made even worse when considering that [[spoiler: Yuka is the only character to survive the massacre and gets exactly what she wanted ''because'' she was smart enough to not back-stab Fumito in order to reap the benefits of her contract this instance. Had the twins and Tokizane remained loyal and stuck to their contracts, they would have likely not died gruesomely and instead will have been rewarded for sticking to the script...except perhaps Kanako, who's goal would have likely interfered with Fumito's own.]]

* ScapegoatCreator: Creator/{{CLAMP}} gets usually blamed by ''Blood'' franchise fans for tainting the series's plot with their characteristically controversial writing shenanigans. It got worse when it was leaked that Junichi Fujisaku, one of the pioneers of the saga, worked in ''Blood C'' only to direct the fight scenes, thus allegedly limiting his chances of getting the series right. However, it turned out in an [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interview/2011-09-01/blood-c-tsutomu-mizushima-and-junichi-fujisaku/2 ANN interview]] that, while he certainly wasn't in charge of the screenplay, the series's story was outlined by himself before CLAMP was involved, and more specifically, that the bizarre ''Blood'' reinventing of the show was '''his''' own idea.

* CriticalBacklash: ''Blood-C'' was one of the most controversial and downvoted series in its heyday, being economically enough of a failure in Japan to propel CLAMP to a new dark age and basically causing the BrokenBase between ''Blood: The Last Vampire'' and ''Blood+'' (and a part of the very CLAMP fandom) to join in their dislike for this new adaptation of their saga. However, specially after the release of the movie, which helped to fill many holes in the series and made many critics to change their mind, it's actually not rare to find recent reviewers who see it as not deserving all the hate it gets.

** While the majority of the viewers and critics agreed that the series's exposition, characterization and pacing were a mess, most of them also thought that the premise of a [[spoiler:TrumanShowPlot mixing a version of the Saya characters with ancient monsters and mysterious conspiracies]] was, if not a genuinely interesting take on the ''Blood'' saga, at least quite appealing on its own right, and would have wished it to be better played.

** The last two episodes really cause a more diverse response where some think that it's brilliant while others think that CLAMP has gone too far with their trademark ComplexityAddiction. It doesn't help that the entire sequence [[spoiler:of the Elder Bairns [[KillEmAll butchering all the townspeople]] ]]in the last episode looked like more CrossedTheLineTwice.

** While CLAMP fans celebrated to see [[spoiler:Watanuki]] in this series (to the point it is often the only reason they watch it - see Just Here for Godzilla below), many believe that he feels shoehorned into ''Blood C'', as he does nothing for the plot, the wish he grants to Saya ends up having no discernible weight, and his presence causes the series's setting to forcefully weld with [[spoiler:''Manga/{{xxxHOLiC}}'']], which is not an easy jive. This is reinforced for his apparition in the movie, in which all he does is giving Saya a new sword and looking important.

* ToughActToFollow: Given the cult success of ''Anime/BloodTheLastVampire'' and ''Anime/BloodPlus'', perhaps it's no wonder that ''Blood C'''s reception has been [[LoveItOrHateIt sadly mixed]] with the low BD/DVD sales. The TV movie, however, fared better than the TV series. The stage play also received good reception which also led to a live-action film with the cast and staff from play returning.

* InkStainAdaptation: Though the show is not an adaptation but an original work, it left a sour taste to a lot of viewers due to the slow pacing and the hardcore violence and gore. Because of this perception, many donít even bother to watch the movie or the stage play and are not interested in seeing the upcoming live-action movie.



* SoBadItsGood: Even its detractors consider the series still fairly entertaining for being so soundly misguided from how they believe an adaptation of ''Anime/BloodTheLastVampire'' should be.
